Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers Serving San Antonio For Over 18 Years
Anyone can become the victim of a devastating personal injury accident — it happens in seconds. And in those few moments, your life can change forever.
Our 3-Step Process Working For You
Are you ready to take serious action to get compensation for your personal injury claim?
Trevino Injury Law, an experienced San Antonio personal injury firm, has helped hundreds of people like you in San Antonio and across Texas get the compensation they deserve from their personal injury case.
I’m attorney Candelario (J.R.) Trevino and I’ve helped personal injury victims successfully navigate the claims process for over 18 years as a trial attorney.
I know how confusing and traumatic it can be going through the process alone, especially when there seems to be so much confusing terminology around the legal system.
That’s why my office, Trevino Injury Law, is here to guide you through the entire journey while educating you on your legal options so that you can focus on healing while we focus on fighting for your compensation.
Here’s how our three-step process works and how you can take the first step to get the money you deserve.
Step 1: We Build You A Trial-Ready Case
We meet with you, gather the specifics of your case, and apply the law to those specifics.
Second and most importantly…
We preserve the relevant evidence.
After 18 years of taking injury cases to trial, I know what evidence is relevant and how to use that evidence in trial to your benefit.
This is very important because, without hours of courtroom experience, accident lawyers will never learn what relevant evidence is.
We use that relevant evidence to maximize the outcome of your injury claim.
You must realize not all personal injury lawyers have the same courtroom experience. In fact, according to the American Bar Association, less than 2% of all civil cases go to trial, which means that most attorneys never step foot in a courtroom.
I believe it’s important to note that in the 18 years of my law career, I’ve taken more than 75 personal injury cases to trial, and Trevino Injury Law has a reputation for winning in the courtroom.
Have peace of mind knowing that if your injury claim should go before a judge and jury, you’ll have the trial experience of San Antonio personal injury lawyers working for you.
Step 2: We Fight While You Heal
Once you hire my firm of personal injury lawyers, your job is to focus on treatment and healing.
And our job is to focus on all the complicated aspects of your claim, including dealing with the insurance companies, investigators, adjusters, attorneys, debt collectors, etc.
Know that insurance companies have teams of employees, including lawyers, working to reject your claim, which is why you need my legal firm to battle the insurance companies while you focus on taking care of yourself.
Step 3: We Get You Compensated
Insurance companies know which personal injury lawyers have experience and success in the courtroom. They use that information to determine the value of your case.
Therefore, the attorneys you choose can affect the money you get.
I have obtained some of the largest verdicts in San Antonio, TX and across the Lone Star State in 2013, 2018, 2019, and 2020. This is public record verified by Verdict Search, a legal publication.
When you hire Trevino Injury Law to represent you, you’ve taken the first step to maximizing your claim.

Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
1. What do personal injury attorneys do?
Personal injury attorneys provide legal advice and representation to clients who have sustained a physical or psychological injury and a financial loss due to the carelessness or negligence of an individual or organization.
2. Why should I hire a personal injury attorney if I’m injured?
In short… to help maximize your claim. The sooner you hire a personal injury lawyer, the sooner an accident investigation can be conducted to preserve relevant evidence in your case.
The more evidence preserved, the clearer the picture will be as to what occurred. As time passes, the picture gets less clear. And when this happens, the insurance carrier will use this ambiguity against you to “devalue” your claim.
Moreover, a study by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) titled “Attorney Involvement in Auto Injury Claims” suggest that injured people who hire a lawyer, on average, receive a (3.5 times) larger settlement. Claimants also received compensation for the claim faster than those who did not hire an attorney.
3. When should I hire a personal injury attorney?
You should hire a personal injury attorney immediately after seeking emergent treatment for your injuries.
The sooner you hire a personal injury lawyer, the sooner an accident investigation can be conducted to preserve relevant evidence in your case. And preserving relevant evidence is one of the keys to maximizing your claim.
In addition, when you hire an attorney you’ll receive a medical treatment evaluation to measure the extent of your injuries so you can begin the healing process.
4. What is a trial lawyer?
It’s a generic term differentiating lawyers who personally go to trial to win a case for their clients and those who don’t.
To call yourself a “trial lawyer” means that you have significant trial experience in the courtroom.
Many personal injury lawyers practice personal injury law but DO NOT take personal injury cases to trial.
According to the American Bar Association only 1%-2% of all civil cases actually proceed to trial. In other words, most attorneys have never stepped foot in the courtroom.
Have confidence knowing Trevino Injury Law has over 18 years of courtroom experience and has taken over 75 personal injury cases to trial.
5. Why is hiring a “trial lawyer” especially helpful to your personal injury claim?
Trial attorneys with a history of taking cases to trial have leverage in negotiating a fair value for their client’s claim.
Insurance companies know which personal injury law firms take cases to trial… and those who don’t.
So when insurance companies “undervalue” your claim (and they will) during negotiations, a San Antonio, TX injury firm like Trevino Injury Law will take the case to trial and demand much larger compensation from a jury (than what was originally offered).
Losing a large sum of money at the hands of a jury is NOT a chance insurance companies want to take, especially with a San Antonio law firm that has a reputation for winning in the courtroom.
Experienced trial lawyers can help build a more comprehensive and favorable legal argument if your case should go to trial.
This is because accident attorneys who try cases (especially in car accidents) understand the magnitude and importance of preserving certain pieces of evidence since they’ve seen it play out in front of the eyes of a jury.
And knowing how to use this preserved evidence is critical in determining how to help sway the jury to your position so you can win in court.
6. What is a personal injury case?
Personal injury cases are legal disputes that arise when someone suffers harm from an accident or injury, and someone else might be legally responsible for that harm.
The harm sustained could be a physical or psychological injury and a financial loss due to the carelessness or negligence of an individual or organization.
The following are examples of personal injury claims:
- Car accidents / Motor vehicle accidents
- Truck accidents (i.e., 18-wheelers)
- Commercial vehicle accidents (i.e., Amazon, UPS, FedEx)
- Public transportation accidents (i.e., busses and trains)
- Motorcycle accidents
- Rideshare accidents (i.e., Uber and Lyft)
- Food delivery driver accidents
- Grocery delivery accidents
- Bike accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Workplace injury accidents
- Birth Injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
- Premises liability accidents (i.e., dangerous property conditions)
- Consumer product liability claims
- Construction accidents
- Dog bite accidents
- Drunk and distracted driving accidents
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Wrongful death
7. How do I know if I have a personal injury claim in Texas?
The best way to determine if you have a valid injury case in Texas is to contact an experienced attorney immediately and discuss the facts of your situation.
A skilled lawyer will be able to investigate your particular situation and advise whether you have a personal injury claim worth pursuing.
You can determine if you have a strong personal injury claim and the estimated value of your injuries by scheduling a (free) no-obligation injury case review with Trevino Injury Law.
8. What constitutes negligence?
The definition of negligence is a failure to behave with the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have exercised under the same circumstances.
Examples would be “speeding” or “texting while driving,” which caused a car accident.
In simple terms, negligence is the standard for someone who can be found legally at fault if you are injured.
9. What damages can I recover?
When you win a personal injury case in San Antonio, Texas, you are allowed to legally recover numerous damages depending on the facts of your case.
As soon you become a client of Trevino Injury Law, we will do everything we legally can to recover as many damages owed to you.
Below are examples of standard compensatory damages recovered in personal injury lawsuits:
- Medical expenses in the past and future
- Physical pain and mental anguish in the past and future
- Physical impairment in the past and future
- Physical disfigurement in the past and future
- Lost wages and earning capacity in the past and future
- Reimbursement or replacement of property damage in the past
- Loss of use of your vehicle in the past
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of enjoyment
- Loss of companionship and consortium (typically applied to wrongful death lawsuits)
Above are standard compensatory damages that are allowed by Texas law. However, punitive damages can also be awarded if the plaintiff can establish “gross negligence.”
Punitive damages tend to be imposed to incentivize a party not to act in the same way or commit a similar wrongful act again.
Even though intent of punitive damages imposed on a company is not designed to compensate the plaintiff — “you” receive the money.
10. How much does it cost to hire a personal injury attorney?
Out-of-pocket or upfront costs to you are zero because the accident lawyers at Trevino Injury Law get paid on a contingency fee basis.
This means our law firm gets a percentage of what we can collect from the responsible party and/or the responsible party’s insurance carrier to cover our fees and expenses.
In other words… if you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid. In the event we don’t win your case, you owe us nothing.
11. How much is my personal injury case worth?
In short, a personal injury case in Texas is worth either what an insurance carrier is willing to pay you to settle your case before trial or what a jury is willing to award you at trial.
There are many factors that are considered to value your case such as:
- What injuries were sustained?
- Do you need future medical help or surgery?
- What aggravating factors existed that caused the incident?
- How much pain and suffering will you endure?
- How much mental anguish will you have?
- What are the medical bills going to be?
- Will you suffer over a lifetime or is this a temporary problem?
- And so on… and so on…
Understand that the value of each personal injury case stands on its own merits. In other words, the value of your case depends upon the facts and circumstances of your particular case.
This is why it’ so important to get an experienced attorney right away to evaluate the potential value of your case.
12. How long does it take to get a personal injury settlement check?
Most personal injury settlements finalize between two and four weeks. However, getting to the point of settlement varies case by case, primarily because of the length of time it takes you to heal.
Once you heal, assuming there are no issues or disputes, your personal injury case can resolve quickly.
However, if an insurance company does not offer a fair and reasonable settlement you are willing to accept, your only option is to file a lawsuit and have your day in court to be compensated fairly.
This well-known insurance tactic of “deny, delay and defend” discourages injured parties and their attorneys from filing a lawsuit or pursuing the claim through litigation or trial.
At Trevino Injury Law, we see this tactic of “deny, delay and defend” daily, and it does NOT discourage us from filing a lawsuit and taking your case to trial to get you fairly compensated.
In fact, we have a reputation for winning in the courtroom.
If you’ve sustained an injury through no fault of your own, and feel the insurance company is “undervaluing” your case, schedule a free case evaluation to get a second opinion with our personal injury attorneys.
