Personal Injury

Finding Justice and Compensation

If you become injured due to the negligence of another person or business, you have the right to pursue justice for what happened to you and financial compensation for the damages you suffered. At Terrazas Henkel, P.C., we help injured people and their families by fighting for them, even through the civil justice system.

With the help of experts, including accident reconstructionists, specialist physicians, vocational rehabilitation experts, and others, we can determine an accurate estimate of how much your injuries have cost you and will cost you in the future.

We Pursue Compensation Based on Evidence and Need

We Listen to and Advocate for You

Our personal injury attorneys will listen to your story, investigate the evidence, and identify the negligent parties who caused your injuries. Then, we hold them accountable — for paying your medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and other losses, and compensating you for your pain and suffering, and future expenses from an injury-related disability.

Often, our task is to pursue a civil complaint against a negligent driver, an employer at a job site, or another party that directly or indirectly caused your injury. We also hold insurance companies responsible, both yours and those of the negligent parties, and keep them accountable for their liabilities under their insurance policy contracts.

In unfortunate circumstances, we pursue survivor’s damages as a result of wrongful death following a catastrophic personal injury.

The compensation we work toward for you is based on evidence of your damages. Sometimes we can secure the money you need through negotiations, but usually, we must file a civil lawsuit to preserve your claim and start meaningful negotiations with other parties. When necessary, we put our decades of trial experience to work to persuade judges or juries to order fair compensation.

By pursuing all avenues, we can improve your chances of getting all the compensation you need to recover from your injuries as much as possible. We believe in our community, and want our clients, and their families, to be able to make the best out of a circumstance filled with physical, emotional, and financial trauma.

(You may also be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance.)

The Insurance Company Doesn’t Get the Final Word

A favorite tactic of insurance companies is to ignore or minimize an injured person’s valid injury claims. Once they respond, their second tactic is to make a low-ball settlement offer. If an insurance company offers to pay you money, it is likely trying to buy you off at a discount. With an experienced injury attorney, you can be confident that your interests are represented.

We can also identify how much money is really available under your insurance policy and the policies of the liable parties. Still have personal injury-related questions? Visit our FAQ page for more information.
