There is nothing more jarring than going about your day, only to sustain a serious injury as a result of someone else’s negligent action. Unfortunately, people are hurt every single day here in Texas, and in most cases, these injuries are entirely preventable. If you were hurt and need a legal representative you can depend on, look no further than a Tom Green County personal injury lawyer from The Mathis Law Firm.

Our Personal Injury Services
The unfortunate reality is that people can get hurt in just about any situation. Though we tend to call these injuries “accidents,” the truth is, in most cases, when people are hurt, someone is responsible, which is why we at The Mathis Law Firm refuse to call these incidents “accidents.” Instead, we acknowledge that there likely is someone to blame, and from there, we look to hold that person accountable. We handle a wide range of personal injury claims, including those involving:
- Motor Vehicle Collisions
- Defective Product Injuries
- Burn Injuries
- Brain Injuries
- Construction Site Injuries
- Oilfield Injuries
- Work Injuries
- Wrongful Death
- Oil Refinery Plant Explosions

Preparing for Your Initial Consultation
We know that wrongfully sustained injuries can be life-changing. When someone sustains such an injury, they need full and fair compensation. The best way to get this compensation is to effectively prepare their injury claim. Of course, our job is to do the heavy lifting, but, if possible, you should do what you can to prepare for your initial consultation so we can make the most of it and have a strong foundation for your injury claim. If you can, try and bring the following to your initial consultation with our firm:
- Pictures or videos of the incident/any damage or injuries caused by the incident
- Any history you may have of previous personal injury claims
- Any record of correspondence between you and the other party and/or their insurance company
- Witness testimony and/or witness contact information so we may reach them for testimony
- Your insurance information
- The other party’s insurance information
- Medical documents regarding your injuries
- Medical bills associated with your injuries
If you do not have all of this information handy, don’t worry–we are still available to speak with you and take your case. We understand that this may seem like a lot, but bringing as much relevant information to your consultation as possible can put us in an optimal position for beginning the injury claims process on your behalf.
Timeframes to Keep in Mind
Every state has a timeframe in which injury victims will have to take legal action against the party responsible for their injuries. This timeframe is known as the statute of limitations. Depending on the circumstances of your injury, the statute of limitations for your injury claim may vary. For example, if you were injured on or by property owned by the government or a municipality, you will have to file a Notice of Claim under the Texas Tort Claims Act within six months of the date your injury occurred.
That said, in most cases, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is two years. This means that, typically, injury victims will have two years from the date of their injury to sue the party responsible. Waiting longer than two years will likely result in an individual permanently losing their right to sue. We’re prepared to listen to your story and begin the fight for your rightful compensation today.
