Outcome for Each of Our Clients

No one wants to go through a complicated legal matter. Unfortunately, even a dedication to avoiding such issues does not guarantee that they won't find you.

Why Choose Us?

The best way to learn about the specifics of your case is to schedule a free consultation with the San Antonio criminal defense and personal injury attorneys at The Castro Law Offices. However, the following frequently asked questions can provide insight in certain instances.

Should I accept a prosecutor's plea deal?

In most situations, prosecutors will offer a plea deal to avoid trial. They'll frame this deal as "the best you're going to get" and possibly even feign empathy for you. However, this tactic is often used to avoid taking a weak case to trial. Let your San Antonio criminal defense attorney review any possible deal before agreeing to it.

Can I appeal my criminal conviction?

Your ability to appeal a criminal conviction will depend heavily on the circumstances of your case. Appeals are very often available, but this won't always be true. For instance, appealing a conviction can be more difficult if you accept a plea deal. Let our San Antonio defense attorneys review your case and help you understand your options.

Should I fight charges if I'm guilty?

Guilt does not negate a person's right to legal representation and a fair trial. Remember, it's the responsibility of state and federal courts to prove your guilt. If they're unable to do so, then it's not appropriate for you to be convicted. Everyone makes mistakes, but these lapses in judgment don't necessarily have to ruin your life.

What if I'm partially responsible for my injuries?

Many people don't bother seeking compensation after an accident because they believe their own fault disqualifies them from financial recovery. This can be a costly mistake. Texas is a comparative negligence state, and that means injury victims may be entitled to compensation even if they contributed to their own injuries. Never make assumptions.

Do I have a valid personal injury lawsuit?

If you've been harmed due to another party's negligent or wrongful acts, you may be entitled to substantial compensation. However, this will typically require proving that the at-fault party is liable for your injuries. If you can do this, a jury is likely to issue a ruling in your favor. However, an insurer may prefer to avoid court and simply offer a settlement.

Does Texas have a personal injury statute of limitations?

Yes, the statute of limitations for Texas personal injury cases is typically two years. After this time expires, any potential claim is likely to be thrown out. There are some exceptions, though, so make sure you speak with a San Antonio personal injury attorney.

What if I don't know who caused my injury?

Even if you don't know who caused your injury — such as in the case of hit-and-run drivers, random assaults, and similar cases — it may still be possible to secure compensation. PIP insurance claims are possible for car accidents, and other issues of liability (e.g., premises liability) may come into play in some cases.
