Emily

Kris is a very knowledgeable family lawyer, with incredible insight and years of hands-on experience to back it up. She is equally as tough and confident as she is caring and sympathetic, which strikes a very critical balance as clients are often dealing with difficult and stressful situations. She rises to the occasion during hearings and key times during the case, but does a good job of not overbilling and creating extra work just because. And as a parent herself, she just gets it. I highly recommend Balekian Hayes to anyone who is going through a challenging divorce and not only needs a strong and formidable advocate, but one who cares and will be in your corner when you need them the most.

Kris and Emory have helped me tremendously in my divorce after I had been a stay-at-home-mom for a significant time. My divorce ended up being contentious and I needed strong representation to protect myself and my children. Balekian-Hayes were able to provide that and I am endlessly grateful for their efforts.

Emory Osborn was smart, knowledgeable, professional and savvy. She helped me reach a settlement I was happy with and put to bed years of resentful back-and-forth bickering. My life is easier now, and I'm glad I was able to work with her.

Ours was a very complicated case involving two kids with different fathers, two sets of grandparents, a father, a mother, an ex-boyfriend, a husband with injury to a child felonies, and CPS. Kris stuck by us until the end and did it with grace and professionalism. Kris is one of the best attorneys in Dallas if not in the state of Texas. She cares about the kids’ welfare and does what is right for them above all else. Thank you Kris for your dedication, caring, and honesty in getting us through this difficult period in our lives. We will be forever grateful to you and your staff. David & Carolyn

Kris Hayes is one of the best family lawyers there is. She is very kind and understanding but will also fight for you. She does not back down to opposition and will do exactly what you ask her to. She just gets it. I went through a very rough modification using many different attorneys which resulted in a huge amount of fees to get me nowhere but closer to a trial. I was at a point where I almost gave up. I reached out to Kris, and she took on my case a month before trial. The results she obtained were beyond any of my expectations. She went up against 2 partners, one associate and numerous paralegals, and handled my trial beautifully. It was amazing watching her tell my story in her words. Up until trial I felt like no one understood me. I would hands down, 100% recommend her to anyone, any day and every day. Thank you, Kris and staff!

AAL general personal injury Frequently Asked Questions

What is personal injury law?

Personal injury law encompasses legal remedies and defenses involved in civil lawsuits brought as a result of wrongful conduct. It covers situations where someone's negligence or intentional actions cause harm to another person. Personal injury law allows injured individuals to seek compensation for their losses, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. This area of law often involves cases such as car accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, and defective product injuries.

What is compensation for a personal injury claim?

Compensation for a personal injury claim typically includes monetary damages intended to compensate the injured party for their losses. This compensation can cover various aspects such as medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages or income, property damage, and pain and suffering. The goal is to provide financial relief to the injured person and help them recover from the physical, emotional, and financial impact of their injuries.

Is emotional distress a personal injury?

Emotional distress can be considered a personal injury under certain circumstances. In legal terms, emotional distress refers to the psychological impact of an injury or traumatic event, such as anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). While it may not always involve physical harm, emotional distress can still be compensable in a personal injury claim if it can be linked to the defendant's actions or negligence.

What percentage do most personal injury lawyers take?

Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means they only get paid if they successfully recover compensation for their clients. Typically, personal injury lawyers take a percentage of the final settlement or court award as their fee. The percentage varies but commonly ranges from 33% to 40% of the total recovery. This arrangement allows injured individuals to pursue legal action without upfront costs and ensures that attorneys are motivated to achieve favorable outcomes for their clients.

How long does a personal injury lawsuit take?

The duration of a personal injury lawsuit can vary significantly depending on various factors, including the complexity of the case, the extent of the injuries, and the court's schedule. Some cases may be resolved through settlement negotiations relatively quickly, while others may take months or even years to reach a resolution, especially if they go to trial. Additionally, factors such as gathering evidence, conducting discovery, and waiting for medical treatment to conclude can influence the timeline of a personal injury lawsuit.

What is an example of a serious injury claim?

An example of a serious injury claim could involve catastrophic injuries that result in long-term or permanent disabilities, such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries leading to paralysis, severe burns, or limb amputations. These types of injuries often have significant and lasting effects on the victim's physical, emotional, and financial well-being, requiring extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and ongoing care. Serious injury claims typically seek substantial compensation to cover these extensive damages and provide for the victim's future needs.

What is compensation for a loss or injury?

Compensation for a loss or injury refers to the financial recovery awarded to an injured party in a legal proceeding. This compensation aims to restore the injured person to the position they were in before the injury occurred to the extent possible. It can include economic damages, such as medical expenses and lost wages, as well as non-economic damages for pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. The goal of compensation is to help the injured individual recover physically, emotionally, and financially from the consequences of their injury.

What is the highest personal injury settlement?

The highest personal injury settlement or verdict can vary greatly depending on the specific circumstances of the case, including the severity of the injuries, the extent of the damages, and the jurisdiction where the case is tried. Settlements and verdicts in personal injury cases have reached into the tens or even hundreds of millions of dollars in some instances, particularly in cases involving catastrophic injuries, medical malpractice, or wrongful death. However, there is no fixed limit on the amount of compensation that can be awarded in a personal injury case, as each case is evaluated based on its unique factors and the applicable laws and precedents.
