Personal Injury

This Blog was brought to you by the Carabin Shaw Law Firm, Principal Office in San Antonio

“Personal injury” refers to an area of law that seeks to protect those harmed by the negligence of another person or entity. Negligence, in turn, is defined as the failure to act with the prudence that a reasonable person, under the same circumstances, would have exercised. Negligence occurs when one person’s conduct imposes an unreasonable risk upon another, which results in personal injury or wrongful death to another person.

Every person has a legal duty to conduct himself according to a certain standard to avoid unreasonable risk to others. If someone fails to conform to that duty and causes injury or death to another person, he may be liable for the damages caused.

Why do you need an attorney?

For personal injury claims, you should consult a lawyer specializing in injury cases. Insurance companies are very aggressive in defending against personal injury cases to avoid payment of claims and to save money. From evaluating your claim to negotiating with the insurance company to advocating your case before a jury – you need an experienced advocate. The attorneys and paralegals at Luce Lineberry & Kenney PS will help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

What to do when you have an accident

When someone else’s carelessness has injured you, it’s important to take some initial steps to ensure your injury claim can be settled fairly and as quickly as possible. Write down everything you can remember about how the injury occurred, including the names, addresses, and phone numbers of potential witnesses. Talk to an attorney before making any written or verbal statements to insurance company adjusters or representatives. Protect any evidence you may need to prove your injury, such as photographs of an accident or injury scene, clothing you wore, damage to personal belongings, etc.


The amount of compensation is mainly determined by the severity of your injuries. The severity is measured in part by the number of your medical bills, the type of injuries you sustained and the length of time it takes for you to recover. As your potential compensation increases, the range for settlement negotiations also increases.

We will fight for your right to just compensation and negotiate for the highest possible settlement.
