Discussing your case with our team will give you an idea of the options available to you, allowing you to make informed decisions about what to do.

How do I Pay for a Tiki Island Personal Injury Attorney?


Our team serving Tiki Island works based on contingency fees. We do not ask our clients to pay us upfront fees for our services and representation. Instead, our attorneys get paid from the settlement or other monetary award we recover for you.

If we do not win your case, we will not get paid. This allows injured victims to pursue damages even if they do not have the money to pay us out of their own pocket.

Do I Have a Valid Claim Based on My Tiki Island Injuries?


In order to sue for personal injury, you must show that you have a valid case. This means your attorney will need to prove that:

  • You suffered injuries
  • You incurred financial losses as a result of your injury
  • The negligent party owed you a duty of care
  • The at-fault party breached that duty of care, and this caused your injury

If you and your legal team can gather evidence to confirm all of these factors occurred, you may have a strong enough claim to recover an out-of-court settlement or take the case to trial and receive a favorable verdict.

What is “Duty of Care” in a Personal Injury Claim?


In different situations, individuals have different obligations. This is known as a “duty of care.” For instance:

  • Drivers must follow the law, avoid drinking or distracted driving, and take precautions to prevent accidents.
  • Property owners must keep premises in working order for those who legally access the property.
  • Employers must ensure a safe working environment and conditions for their employees.

If you were hurt on another party’s property or in a car accident due to another person’s error or neglect, you suffered a personal injury. This means you may be able to file an insurance claim or sue for damages.

How Long do I Have to File a Lawsuit for a Personal Injury in Texas?


If you suffered injuries, you only have a limited amount of time to pursue a claim in Tiki Island. According to CPRC Title 2, Chapter 16, Section 16.002, you generally have two years from the date of the accident to file a claim.

You likely also want to act quickly, especially if you face high medical expenses or cannot return to work to earn your previous wages.

There are exceptions to this rule, as well. If the victim is a child, you may have longer to file. If the liable party is a municipality or government agency, you could have less time. Act quickly to ensure you meet all applicable deadlines, and preserve your right for compensation.

What Type of Cases Do Tiki Island Personal Injury Attorneys Take?

  • Truck accidents

Our Personal Injury Attorneys fight for Clients’ Settlements


Insurance companies are not in the business of making sure injury victims recover what they need. They are in business of making profits, and they hold on to as much of their profit as possible by using a variety of tactics to devalue your settlement, and deny you the compensation you deserve.

The Insurance Company Will Undervalue Your Claim


If you were hurt, you may need to work with insurance companies and adjusters to receive the financial recovery you need. These insurance companies will use special formulas or make their own estimates of the value of your claim.

Insurance adjusters may ask you to make statements or may try to find information to reduce the value of your claim.

Unfortunately, insurers often offer a recovery that doesn’t reflect the actual value of a victim’s medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. It is essential to protect your rights. We encourage you not to speak with the insurance companies until you talk to us first.


How Our Tiki Island Personal Injury Lawyers Determine Your Settlement Value


Our firm understands how insurance companies work, and we also take the time to understand your case and estimate a fair value for your recovery. During this process, we will:

  • Review your insurance policy
  • Estimate the value of your claim based on medical costs, lost wages, and other damages
  • Speak to insurance adjusters
  • Write demand letters
  • Pursue a fair settlement or take your case to trial

Our Tiki Island attorneys will help you fight for a fair and just recovery based on the facts of your case. We will even pursue justice and compensation for you at trial, if necessary.

How an Tiki Island Attorney Can Help When there are Multiple Liable Parties


If there were multiple parties involved in your accident, you may have to work with many stakeholders, insurance adjusters, and responsible parties. This can be a job in itself.

Our team can help you identify stakeholders, fight for insurance companies to meet their obligations to you and protect your rights.

Our firm can review the details of each policy, holding insurance adjusters accountable for meeting their companies’ obligations to you. If an insurance adjuster made an offer, contact our Tiki Island Personal Injury Attorneys today before you sign anything.

I used West & West for my personal injury claim - a slip and fall that involved a trip to the emergency room. Michael West was able to successfully get my medical bills paid and I walked away with money in my pocket. Both Michael and his paralegal were very helpful throughout the whole process.

West and West did an excellent job representing our family's estate settlement during the probate process. They are skilled, up to date, and were patient with us and the beneficiaries and helped us keep everything on track during our extended process. Laura and the others were always amazing with us too.

I enjoyed dealing with a local law firm with strong roots in the community. Probating my Uncle's Will was emotional and personal, but the staff made the process easier than I ever imagined. The process was smooth and easy. The care shown by the staff is knowledgeable and caring.
