New Braunfels Personal Injury Lawyer
Personal Injury Attorney Serving New Braunfels, Comal County, Seguin, and Throughout South Central Texas
When injuries from someone's negligence occur, insurance companies seek to minimize the compensation paid in claims to injury victims. Personal injury attorneys need a strong grasp of Texas tort law to analyze the facts, create negotiating leverage, and be prepared for trial when necessary. Victims have rights to various damages. Compensatory damages compensate for losses. Economic damages compensate for quantified, actual losses such as medical care and property damage. Noneconomic include physical pain, mental anguish, disfigurement, loss of companionship, and more. Exemplary damages penalize and deter defendants for actions involving fraud, malicious intent, or gross negligence.

Mr. Bettersworth belongs to the exclusive Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, in which has only 4000 members across the United States. Forum membership is only for attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. Contact our office at 830-606-0404 for a free consultation for matters involving:
Car Accidents and Wrongful Death
Many trial lawyers agree that South Central Texas is one of the best places in the state to pursue negligence cases in court. Insurance companies know that area jurors tend to be sympathetic to victims, so many cases settle rather quickly and on very favorable financial terms. Of course, not every case settles right away. However, the aggressive attorneys at The Bettersworth Law Firm do not lose heart. Instead, we fight for you during the preliminary hearings, throughout the discovery phase, and all the way to trial. All the while, we remain open to settlement on favorable terms and always promptly keep you informed about important developments in your case.
We advocate for clients in cases of drunk driving, hit-and-run, and distracted driving. Commercial (semi) trucks accidents are particularly dangerous. Negligent truck drivers create liabilities for themselves and trucking companies. Restrictions on hours driven per day and maintenance requirements are often ignored. Motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to die in collisions then cars and will likely need significant financial compensation.
Business and Fraud Litigation
In addition to consumer-related practice areas, The Bettersworth Law Firm assists the business community and investors with contract or fraud-related concerns including:
- Construction and commercial litigation;
- Contract breaches;
- Tortious interference and unethical business practice;
- Mechanic's/Materialman's Liens; and
- Investors subjected to Ponzi Schemes, churning, and unsuitable investments.
Our skilled team is able to help businesses achieve results that will achieve or exceed expectations. Through intense preparations and detail-oriented planning, we are able to offer the best possible case results to corporate entities.
