After an accident, the victim will immediately find themselves overwhelmed with questions. Can I afford my medical bills? How will my life ever be the same? How will my family be affected?
Navigating the aftermath of a severe injury — or, even worse, a wrongful death — can be complicated. But with the help of a skilled and experienced personal injury lawyer, it doesn’t have to be as frustrating.
Representing clients in their time of need
Salinas has an impressive educational background, with a degree from the University of Texas School of Law, along with internships with Judge Fred Biery of the Federal District Court of the Western District of Texas and Chief Justice Alma Lopez with the 4th Court of Appeals of Texas. He also served as a Policy Analyst in the Texas Senate during the 79th Legislature.
Following this, Salinas worked for a law firm defending corporations and insurance companies in personal injury cases throughout Texas. “Working for the big guys gave me a lot of experience and helped me to understand how they work,” Salinas explains, “but working for the other side didn’t bring me the personal fulfillment I desired. I knew in my heart that I wanted to stand up for the victims.”
Salinas soon set his eyes on standing up for those whose lives were forever changed by the negligent actions of others. He became a trial lawyer for a prominent personal injury law firm in San Antonio, representing victims and their families in hundreds of personal injury and wrongful death cases, before forming George Salinas Injury Lawyers to continue to pursue his passion for helping others.
George Salinas Injury Lawyers specializes in personal injury law cases, allowing them to offer heavily specialized legal counsel. However, under the umbrella of personal injury law, Salinas’s team can handle several types of injuries, including auto accidents, slip-and-falls, product liability cases, and any other case in which someone suffers an injury to their body, mind, or emotions due to the negligence of another.
As he sees it, Salinas’s role is as an advocate and voice for those seeking justice through the court system. “People tend to misguidedly believe that they need loads of money to afford the best lawyer for their personal injury case,” says Salinas. “At George Salinas Injury Lawyers, we pride ourselves on providing our clients with top-tier service without having to worry about an upfront fee.”
Helping clients without out-of-pocket costs
“Prospective clients often ask us how much their case is worth,” Salinas asserts. “The answer is more complicated than it may seem. How much you may receive in damages depends on several factors, particularly the severity of your injuries. However, a trained legal professional will be able to look at the details and evidence of a case and determine roughly how much it may be worth. At George Salinas Injury Lawyers, we offer zero-cost, no-obligation consultations to decide if we are the right fit to work together to maximize your case.”
As with most personal injury law firms, George Salinas Injury Lawyers handles cases on a contingency basis. “If you don’t win, we don’t get paid,” Salinas explains. “Personal injury cases involve several expenses, including investigation, deposition fees or court costs, and more. Our firm advances these expenses to ensure nothing comes out of your pocket.”
Victims of accidents also sometimes struggle to pay their medical bills before being awarded damages due to their cases. George Salinas Injury Lawyers can help guide their clients through the complicated process of handling medical expenses. Their team works with clients to help find doctors and hospitals willing to defer payment until your case concludes with the expectation that their clients will receive a substantial payout after settlement or trial.
Getting you the justice you deserve
Without the guidance of an experienced legal team, victims may be tempted — or even pressured by insurance companies — to settle for less than they deserve. Many people fail to remember that insurance companies, including their own, are simply trying to make a profit and want things to be done as quickly as possible.
“The right to trial by jury is a fundamental part of our country’s foundation,” Salinas explains. “I have found my calling in empowering victims of personal injury and wrongful death to exercise that right.”
A major accident can be devastating to the victim — fundamentally changing or sometimes even ending their lives. “No one will deny that the cost of human life is priceless,” Salinas asserts, “but the expenses of dealing with injury or death can shatter you or your loved ones. Our mission is to help you receive the money you need and deserve to keep your life on track, even when serious injury or a loved one’s wrongful death has threatened to derail it.”
