Assisting Victims Of Car Wrecks, Truck Accidents And Other Negligence Injuries

In many areas of the law, particularly some personal injury cases, the laws and the procedures followed by courts can be unfavorable to plaintiffs. As a result, the big insurance companies are more determined than ever to deny fair compensation to victims. In this environment, it is critical to partner with an experienced attorney who knows how to uncover all the relevant facts, perform the proper research, and apply the applicable law. Simply put, aggressive lawyers who regularly practice in the local courts are in the best position to tip the balance of power in your favor.

The Bettersworth Law Firm represents individuals and businesses throughout South Central Texas, most notably New Braunfels, Seguin, San Marcos, Schertz, Cibolo, Karnes City, Kennedy, Gonzales, San Antonio, Boerne, Buda, Kyle, Comal County, Hays County, Guadalupe County, Bexar County and Kendal County. Our team routinely handles complex cases involving personal injury, including car accidents, 18 wheeler wrecks, motorcycle collisions, and much more. We carefully select cases with an eye towards merit and value. As a result, each case receives a tremendous amount of personalized care and attention. We do not work under any "cookie-cutter" processes. Attorney James Bettersworth works directly with clients throughout the litigation process.

Once we develop a plan of action, every move we make is calculated to promote our client's best interests. After diligent preparation, we provide aggressive representation in both pretrial settlement negotiations and in the trial itself. We will make sure all relevant information is uncovered by performing investigations into the causes of accidents or injuries. We will utilize a qualified team of experts to prove the liability of negligent drivers, property owners, and other parties. We will also work with medical experts to ensure that the extent of a person's injuries and damages are properly documented. This ensures that our clients will be able to recover the full amount of compensation they deserve.
