Our personal injury attorneys offer specialized, dedicated legal services for accident victims in the San Antonio area, guiding you every step of the way.

Where We're Located

San Antonio transportation revolves around the automobile. The city is also among the fastest-growing in the country. Lots of trips by car, combined with a growing number of drivers on the roads, is a recipe for a lot of car accidents. Around 30,000 – 50,000 per year, to be exact.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident in San Antonio, you know how overwhelming the aftermath can be. With medical bills piling up, insurance companies calling, and the stress of recovering from your injuries, the last thing you need is to navigate the sometimes-confusing claims process alone. That’s where a local San Antonio car accident lawyer from Jim Adler & Associates comes in.

There are many personal injury law firms in San Antonio, but there’s only one Texas Hammer®. Let us put our 50+ years of experience to work for you: call us or send us a message to schedule a free consultation.

Why You Need A San Antonio Car Accident Lawyer

A skilled San Antonio TX auto accident attorney from Jim Adler & Associates can provide timely and top tier legal services for car accident victims. A local attorney well-versed in car accident cases, Texas law, and the court system is well-equipped to traverse the claims process and help you obtain every dollar you’re entitled to.

Like you, our San Antonio lawyers live, work, and commute in the Alamo City. From relationships with local experts and law enforcement to knowledge about local accident hotspots and traffic ordinances, we know San Antonio and have a reputation in the community. Living locally, we can quickly review the accident scene to gather evidence that could be critical to your case. We can also meet you at your home, place of business, or the hospital to go over the accident and next steps. And if your case ends up going to trial, our knowledge of San Antonio courts and judges can help the wheels of justice to turn more smoothly.

Factors To Consider When Evaluating Car Accident Lawyers

When hiring a car accident lawyer, consider the following factors:

  • Experience: There is no substitute for experience. Look for a personal injury law firm that has handled auto accidents similar to yours and stood the test of time. Founded in 1978, the Adler Law Firm has been helping injured Texans for more than 50 years. We’re prepared to put our decades of experience to work for you.
  • Successful track record: The best predictor of future success is past results. Our law firm has litigated and settled thousands of cases for Texans over the years, including many multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. At Jim Adler & Associates, success is a major part of our story.
  • Contingency fee arrangement: We believe that anyone who’s been injured deserves a great attorney. A contingency fee arrangement, in which legal fees are only owed if and when a client wins their case, provides financial peace of mind during the legal process. We’re committed to your success and want to prove it to you by going “all in” on your case.

We know that choosing a car accident lawyer adds another layer of complexity to your injury case. There are many car accident lawyers in San Antonio, but there’s only one law firm that’s home to The Texas Hammer. Don’t just take our word for it. Hear from satisfied clients who say that hiring our law firm was the right decision.

Common Injuries And Damages In San Antonio Car Accidents

Car accident victims in San Antonio may experience a range of injuries, from contusions and whiplash to broken bones, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and spinal cord injury. These injuries can result in significant medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering, all of which can be addressed through a car accident claim. In addition to their physical and psychological injuries, car accident victims may also be entitled to compensation for property damage and other losses incurred because of the car crash.

One problem you may encounter when negotiating with the insurance company is knowing whether a settlement offer is fair. It’s easy enough to add up your medical bills and lost wages. But what about the value of future medical expenses and ongoing missed work time? Are there any out-of-pocket costs you’re missing? How long will it take you to get back to normal after a serious injury and at what cost—not only financially, but mentally and emotionally? The non-economic costs of a car accident can be worth every bit as much, if not more, than the economic costs. But calculating pain and suffering damages can be difficult.

Another factor to consider is punitive damages. Did the other driver display wanton disregard for public safety by, for example, drinking and driving, racing, or operating recklessly? Punitive damages can substantially increase your compensation, but again, they often come down to technical legal questions.

Without a complete accounting of your losses, with input from experts, you can’t be sure the insurance company is treating you fairly. Our legal team will make sure the total value of your injuries and damages is considered in your personal injury claim. And if the insurance company isn’t willing to match this number, we can file a lawsuit that demands they pay your claim in full. You only have one shot at receiving maximum compensation for your car accident injuries. Make it count. Call us today!

Time Limits for Filing a Car Accident Claim in San Antonio

The statute of limitations for filing a car accident lawsuit in Texas is two years from the date of the accident. You may not plan on filing a lawsuit at the beginning. You might be confident that the negotiations will go smoothly and you’ll be offered a full and fair settlement. But your hand may be forced due to your claim being delayed, denied, or underpaid.

Filling a lawsuit doesn’t mean your case will ultimately be decided by a judge or jury. But it puts more pressure on the insurance company to do right by you. Trials represent higher risk and greater costs to insurers. Rather than roll the dice and take a chance on a large jury award, they might decide to do the right thing and up their offer.

Don’t lose sight of the two-year filing deadline. Failure to file a claim within this period can result in losing your right to file a lawsuit. Even if you didn’t contact a car accident lawyer immediately after the accident, you can still reach out to a law firm to file your claim as long as you’re within the two-year window. With The Texas Hammer on your side, the threat of a lawsuit will loom large and could be a deciding factor at the negotiating table.

The Costs of Hiring a San Antonio Car Accident Lawyer

Jim Adler’s San Antonio car accident attorneys handle every personal injury case on a contingency fee basis. We cover all the costs of your case, from start to finish. At the end, if we obtain a settlement or verdict, you pay a percentage of the total recovery. But if we don’t win, you don’t pay.

This type of fee arrangement lets you hire the best car accident lawyer, without worrying about paying hourly fees. It also offers assurances that your attorney’s interests are aligned with yours and risks are shared. In addition to contingency fee representation, we provide a free initial consultation.

Talk To Our San Antonio Car Accident Lawyers

There’s no two ways about it: San Antonio TX is one of the worst cities in the country for driving.

This fact does not excuse the actions of individual drivers. Car accidents happen for many reasons. The common cause in almost every case is drivers acting carelessly.

Statistically, during the time that you own your current vehicle, you’ll be involved in a San Antonio car accident. After a crash, things may not get any easier as you deal with the insurance company. Insurance companies act like they’re on your side—until you need them to step up. Instead of paying you on time and in full, they might delay, deny, or underpay your claim.

Our San Antonio Texas car accident attorneys are on a mission: to make sure you’re treated fairly and compensated fully.
