Types of Cases

At Stout and Stout we handle a wide variety of personal injury cases including many that are unique to West Texas and Southwestern New Mexico. Here are a few of the types of cases we handle.

Commercial Motor Vehicle Accidents

We handle accident cases for commercial motor vehicles such as 18 wheelers, tractor trailers, and semis. We have the experience and knowledge needed to battle the insurance companies and get our clients the compensation they are owed for their injury case.

Oilfield Accidents

The oil-working industry is a hazardous occupation and dealing with an accident on an oilfield can be a difficult situation that has its own unique challenges. Our oilfield accident lawyers are ready and waiting to handle these challenges with you and get you fair and just compensation for your injuries.

We also assist clients with venue selection, co counsel, information about local judges and opposing counsel and help with trial strategy and case preparation to give clients the best chances possible at a successful recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does an Initial Consultation Cost?

We offer free first time consultations for new clients, meaning you won’t have to pay out of pocket just to meet with one of the members of our team.

What If I Can’t Afford an Attorney?

We operate on a contingency basis, meaning there is no fee unless and until we recover compensation for you. The exact fees you will pay when awarded compensation will vary but these rates will be discussed with you during your initial consultation. Each case is different and no guarantee can be made on the amount or result that can be achieved in any case.

What If I Can Never Work Again or Am Limited in My Ability to Work?

One of our attorneys will discuss with you whether you may be able to recover compensation for lost wages as well as compensation for future earnings that are lost as a result of your accident.

If I Hire a Lawyer Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?

No, it will depend on your specific case. Some cases have a statute of limitations and must be filed quickly while other types of cases can be settled out of court without having to file a lawsuit.

Hire someone from your community that you can trust, that knows the people and the unique problems in our part of the region.

What If I Was Injured Out of State?

Depending on where the accident happened and where you reside you may still be able to file a case. Our attorneys will discuss the specifics of your case with you to help determine if you have a case and how to move forward.

What Are My Rights If I Was Hurt on the Job?

Most work related injuries are covered by workers’ compensation insurance. There are many requirements under worker’s compensation for giving written notice (15 days), filing claims, medical selection, etc. It is best to talk to a lawyer soon after an accident to make sure that you have properly reported your injury.

If another business or a 3rd party caused your accident, then you may have a negligence lawsuit as well. The best way to know is to discuss your case with a lawyer, who handles both workers’ compensation and personal injury cases.
