If you get injured in a car accident, Mission Personal Injury Lawyers will try to negotiate a settlement with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. If the insurer refuses to settle on fair terms, our seasoned litigators can file a lawsuit.
As the heart of El Paso’s shopping district, El Centro always has active construction projects. New buildings, renovations, and road repairs happen throughout the year.
If you get injured in a construction accident, you will probably be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. You may also have a third-party claim against anyone who contributed to your injuries other than your employer.
Texas has more registered motorcycles than 44 other states. More motorcycles mean more motorcycle accidents as distracted, careless drivers fail to spot motorcyclists on the road. Mission Personal Injury Lawyers fights negligent drivers and their insurers for compensation after they crash into motorcycles.
Slip and Fall Accidents
El Centro is known for its shops and restaurants. When business owners fail to keep their premises reasonably free from hazards, customers can slip, trip, or fall. Mission Personal Injury Lawyers can help you pursue compensation if you get injured on someone else’s premises in a slip and fall accident caused by the owner’s negligence.
As a major U.S. port of entry with Mexico, El Paso has truck traffic rumbling along its roads around the clock. Unfortunately, these vehicles can cause catastrophic injuries in truck accidents. Mission Personal Injury Lawyers will stand up to trucking companies and their insurers to get you fair compensation if you get hit by a commercial truck.
Texas gives family members the right to pursue wrongful death claims if they lose a loved one due to the intentional or negligent actions of others. El Centro has many fatal accidents and other incidents, including workplace accidents, traffic accidents, and assaults.
Mission Personal Injury Lawyers helps families pursue closure and compensation from those responsible for the death of their family member.

What Does It Cost To Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in El Paso County, TX?
Most personal injury attorneys in El Paso County charge a contingency fee. Lawyers quote contingency fees as a percentage. At the end of the case, the lawyer takes the quoted percentage out of your settlement or damage award as a legal fee. The benefit of contingency fees is that you can hire a skilled and experienced injury lawyer without any upfront cost.
During a free initial consultation, a lawyer from Mission Personal Injury Lawyers will explain the fees you will pay to recover compensation for your injuries.
Statute of Limitations in Texas Personal Injury Cases
Texas has a two-year statute of limitations for most personal injury cases. If you file a lawsuit after this time expires without giving a statutory excuse for your late filing, a judge will dismiss your case. To avoid this extreme outcome, you should speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your injury.
A lawyer from Mission Personal Injury Lawyers can calculate your deadline so you can start your case well before the statutory limit expires.
