The Bernsen Law Firm provides first-rate legal advocacy for Texans injured in accidents caused by others’ negligence. Our lawyers in Beaumont serve clients throughout southeast Texas, aggressively pursuing justice for victims at the negotiation table and in court. Drawing on decades of combined experience assisting personal injury plaintiffs from surrounding communities, we have a thorough understanding of the relevant laws and local courts. Whether you were hurt in a car crash, a construction accident, an assault or some other incident, we will give you the personal attention you deserve as we strive to achieve the best legal outcome possible.
A person who is injured in an accident can experience physical, psychological and emotional trauma. These can lead to significant medical costs, time missed at work and intense pain that could last for months, or even years. In order to hold the parties at fault fully liable for all your injuries, it is important to take swift, effective legal action. Our attorneys have a long track record of winning substantial financial recoveries for people in cases arising from the following:
If you have been injured by someone else’s negligence or intentional misconduct, the attorneys of Bernsen Law Firm are available to discuss your legal options and help you decide the best way to move forward. We take all of our personal injury cases on a contingency basis, which means you do not pay any legal fees until and unless you receive compensation through a verdict or settlement.
Once you’ve been hurt and believe that someone else is fully or partially responsible for your injury, you should consult with a qualified attorney. Insurance companies often try to exploit victims’ unfamiliarity with the legal system and their immediate financial need by trying to coerce them into a quick settlement that doesn’t truly reflect the extent of their injuries. You should not agree to give up your legal rights until you’ve received an evaluation of your case from a lawyer who is on your side. Texas has a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims, but it’s best to take prompt action so that key evidence and witnesses can be located.
To win damages in a personal injury lawsuit, you must show that the defendant had a duty of care to you and violated it. Then, you must prove that the violation was the proximate cause of the injuries you suffered. After learning the facts in your case, we outline how the law applies to your situation and gather the evidence necessary to show that all of the elements for a successful negligence claim exist. Defendants might allege that you caused your own injury or that they took reasonable safety measures and should not be legally liable for the incident where you were hurt. Our attorneys push back against meritless defenses during settlement discussions and at trial.
