Our 3-Step Process Working For You
Are you ready to take serious action to get compensation for your personal injury accident?
Trevino Injury Law, experienced San Antonio personal injury attorneys, have helped hundreds of people in Greater San Antonio and throughout South Texas get the compensation they deserve as a victim of a catastrophic accident.
I’m personal injury lawyer Candelario (J.R.) Trevino and I’ve helped accident victims successfully navigate the claims process for over 20 years as a trial attorney.
As a San Antonio injury lawyer, I know how confusing and traumatic it can be going through the accident claim process alone, especially when there seems to be so much confusing terminology around the legal system.
That’s why Trevino Injury Law, located in San Antonio, 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 accident claims to trial in San Antonio and across Texas, 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 accident claim.
You must realize not all San Antonio accident 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, as an accident lawyer, I’ve taken more than 75 San Antonio personal injury law cases to trial with a reputation for winning in the courtroom.
Have peace of mind knowing that if your personal injury lawsuit should go before a judge and jury in San Antonio or anywhere in Texas, you’ll have the trial experience of seasoned personal injury lawyers working for you.

Step 3: We Get You Compensated

Therefore, the attorneys you choose can affect the money you get.
As a San Antonio personal injury lawyer I have obtained some of the largest multi-million dollar verdicts in San Antonio, TX, throughout Bexar County, and across the Lone Star State in 2013, 2018, 2019, and 2020. This is public record verified by Verdict Search, a legal publication.

Personal Injury FAQs: Frequently Asked Questions
1. What do personal injury attorneys do?
Personal injury lawyers provide legal advice and representation to clients who have sustained a physical injuries or psychological injuries and a financial loss due to the carelessness or negligence of an individual or organization.
2. Why should I hire an experienced San Antonio personal injury lawyer if I’m injured?
In short… to help maximize your accident claim. The sooner you retain the best San Antonio 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 at the time of accident. 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 after an accident, 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 at least seek legal consultation (it’s free) immediately after seeking emergent treatment for your accident injuries to understand your damage recovery options and your legal rights.
Because the sooner you hire a personal injury attorney and have legal representation, 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 from our San Antonio office you’ll receive a medical treatment evaluation to measure the extent of your accident 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 San Antonio 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 proceed to trial. In other words, most attorneys have never stepped foot in the courtroom. That’s a firm fact.
Have confidence knowing the law office of 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.
An insurance company will know which personal injury law firms take cases to trial… and those who don’t.
So when insurance carriers “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 an insurance company is willing 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 (specifically with personal injuries) 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 San Antonio jury or elsewhere.
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 (or company) might be legally responsible for that harm.

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 Texas lawyer will be able to investigate your particular accident and advise whether you have a personal injury claim worth pursuing.
A responsible personal injury attorney can determine and tell you if you have a strong personal injury claim and the estimated value of your injuries.
8. What constitutes negligence?
The definition of negligence in an accident is a failure to behave with the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have exercised under the same circumstances.
Examples in Texas 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 the Trevino Injury Law firm, we will do everything we legally can to recover as many damages owed to you.
Below are examples of standard compensatory damages recovered in Texas 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 in San Antonio?
Out-of-pocket or upfront costs to you are zero because the San Antonio accident lawyers at Trevino Injury Law get paid on a contingency fee basis.
This means our 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 our legal firm 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.
The many factors considered to value your accident claim are:
- 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 all other compensatory damages sustained.
Understand that the value of each personal injury claim in Texas 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’ important to hire one of the best San Antonio law firms 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 in Texas 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, our accident firm has a reputation for taking hard accident cases to trial and winning.
