Personal Injury

We Are Your Lubbock, Texas Personal Injury Lawyers

Personal injuries tend to become costly, fast. Injured people often face astronomical medical bills while they are unable to work. Without financial compensation, these bills pile up. As a result, many people are hounded by collection agencies or even forced into bankruptcy after experiencing a personal injury. Others return to work too soon or are unable to obtain the healthcare services and medical treatments their injury requires, due to a lack of funds.

A qualified personal injury attorney can help you avoid the financial nightmare that often follows an injury.

Who Should Compensate Me for My Injury?

Often, people and organizations that are legally liable for injuries either under-compensate or avoid compensating for injury-related damages. Instead of paying what they owe, these parties might try to make you feel guilty for requesting compensation. Since the effects of an injury can last a lifetime, it’s important you don’t let attempts to under-compensate work. Instead, find a lawyer and seek compensation quickly.

At Carter & Rader, we have expertise in identifying who is liable for an injury and the best way to obtain compensation. Who is liable depends entirely on the situation. That said, the following are often those who should provide injury victims compensation:

  • Corporations
  • Individuals
  • Insurance companies
  • Municipalities
  • Property owners

What Can I Be Compensated for?

As a personal injury victim, you deserve compensation if your injury was due to someone else’s negligence or faulty product. You might also deserve compensation if you were involved in an accident on someone’s property. Here are examples of types of injuries that often qualify for compensation:

  • Animal attacks
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Car and motorcycle crashes
  • Construction injuries
  • Defective product injuries
  • Train wrecks
  • Workplace injuries

Of course, there are many other types of injuries for which someone can be held liable. If you are unsure if your injury is deserving of compensation, the best course of action is to ask a personal injury lawyer if you have a case.

A lawyer can help you receive the compensation you deserve. Personal injury victims are often compensated for:

  • Hospital bills
  • Medical devices and treatments
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

Our Personal Injury Expertise

At Carter & Rader, we’ve represented successful personal injury claims for over a decade. Aaron Carter, one of the firm’s founders, worked as a claims manager for a high-profile local personal injury lawyer prior to founding this firm. Since then, Aaron Carter has continued to take personal injury cases on a selective basis.

Our expertise lies in working on cases in the West Texas and New Mexico regions. With a long history in this area, we have a good sense of how different types of personal injury cases play out locally. We’re headquartered in Lubbock, Texas, and we’ve found that big law firms in Dallas and Houston can’t provide local West Texas injury claims the personalized attention they require.
