About San Marcos

Although the City of San Marcos was officially founded in 1851, the area has been a popular place for people to call home for thousands of years, most likely due to its prime location along the beautiful San Marcos River. In recent years, the city has been growing quickly, attracting new residents and businesses with its mix of small-town charm and bigger city bustle.

Conveniently located about halfway between Austin and San Antonio on Interstate 35, San Marcos is home to about 60,000 residents and counting. Attracting young people from across the state and around the country, Texas State University is proud to call San Marcos home. In addition, the city boasts a beautiful historic downtown district, the ever-popular San Marcos Premium Outlets, and The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment (formerly known as the Aquarena Center).

As the seat of Hays County, both San Marcos and the county have been recognized for their drive to attract new businesses and constantly build a better community, according to the San Marcos Area Chamber of Commerce.

Our Dedication to Those Injured in San Marcos

Just like any expanding community, San Marcos has experienced its own growing pains. For example, with more people on the roads, there are more crashes to contend with. In fact, the Texas Department of Transportation reported 1,422 crashes in San Marcos in 2015, compared with 1,037 in 2010. That’s a more than 35 percent increase in auto accidents in just five years.

And, with more businesses popping up, there are always unfortunate circumstances in which negligently maintained property or careless business owners put everyday people at risk of injury.

At the Burch Law Firm, our dedicated San Marcos personal injury lawyers want to see the community succeed, but we also want to ensure safety is always a top priority. We frequently represent San Marcos residents who were injured in car crashes or other serious accidents and just need help getting back to the lives they knew before. Our goal is always to secure full and fair compensation for those in need.

Our Track Record of Success

Although we have handled many cases over the years, we fight for each client as if you are our only client. And although each case is unique and everyone’s circumstances are different, we will always demand maximum compensation for your injuries. Some of the highlights of our case results include:

$1,847,000 SETTLEMENT for a farmworker who suffered serious burns when improperly used equipment came into contact with high-voltage power lines.

$1,000,000 SETTLEMENT for a family whose young child drowned in a new pool after a pool construction company failed to install necessary safety equipment.

$852,500 SETTLEMENT for a business professional who suffered a broken arm and multiple fractures to his leg in a head-on collision.

$300,000 SETTLEMENT for a man who was injured in his apartment when a ceiling fan fell and struck him in the eye.

We know that there’s no amount of money that can turn back the clock and erase the trauma that you and your family have been through. However, you deserve an attorney who will fight for every cent of compensation that you need to recover as best you can from your injury.

You can trust that our San Marcos personal injury lawyers will do just that.

Are You Ready for a Free Consultation?

If you are coping with serious injuries after a car crash or other accident, you need a compassionate personal injury attorney on your side who can take some of the burden off you. Your focus should be on getting better ─ physically and emotionally ─ not on arguing with an insurance company over a lowball settlement offer.

When you contact our San Marcos personal injury lawyers, we will:

  • Immediately launch a thorough investigation into the cause of your accident and identify all potentially liable parties.
  • Collect evidence such as medical records, law enforcement reports, and insurance company estimates to begin building a strong case for you.
  • Consult with medical and financial experts to determine the extent of your injuries and how much they will affect you and your ability to work in the future.
  • Take over all communications with the insurance company and other at-fault parties to ensure you are not being pressured to take a settlement that’s not fair to you.
  • File the appropriate paperwork and stay on top of all the deadlines to pursue a personal injury lawsuit if a full settlement offer is not reached in a timely manner.

You may have already been approached by an insurance company that is offering you a quick settlement to help with mounting medical bills. Don’t be fooled by their “concern” for you. Insurance companies are out for themselves, and they will manipulate situations to try to pay out as little as possible on your claim.

The experienced San Marcos personal injury attorneys at the Burch Law Firm understand how these big insurance companies work, and we are skilled negotiators when it comes to fighting for our clients’ rights. In addition, if an insurance company fails to offer you full and fair compensation, our dedicated trial lawyers will not hesitate to take your case to court. At the end of the day, your needs are our top priority.
