Advocates for the Injured

If you or a member of your family has suffered serious personal injury, or a loved one has been killed in a fatal accident, you need a law firm you can trust. Carabin Shaw has been that trusted San Antonio law firm since 1992. Our commitment as advocates for the injured has continued to bring us referrals and cases that have equaled success after success for our clients. For us, advocacy doesn't just mean doing our jobs—it means treating every step of the legal process as if we were caring for one of our own and refusing to exit the ring until we know our lawyers have earned a victory.


A San Antonio injury attorney has to be committed to success in order to ensure each client is made as whole as is possible following an injury or the loss of a loved one. Our commitment begins during the initial consultation, where we sit down and talk our way through your case: what happened, who was involved, when you were injured, where the accident occurred, possible causes or catalysts, etc. After discussing the facts, we will give you an overview of how, as your attorney, we would handle the case, with a breakdown of the major steps along the way and what, if anything, we might need from you as we advocate for your side of the story. We will also typically introduce you to the lawyer who will be personally assigned to your case, especially if the consultation takes place in San Antonio. All of this takes place before you've signed any paper or committed to anything. As advocates for the injured, it is more important to us that you see how committed we can be before you trust us than that we rush you into a process you don't fully understand.


Justice comes in many shapes and sizes, and in the aftermath of an accident it can be hard to determine what justice will actually look like by the time all the dust has settled. If it were as simple as whoever caused the accident pays for the repairs, most of us would be satisfied. But even in cases as seemingly clear-cut as that, there are often forces at work that one or both parties are not aware of. These include prescription drugs one driver was under the influence of without being aware of it, a manufacturing flaw in a driver- or passenger-side mirror that misrepresented the distance of the impacted object, or the unexpected reflection of sunlight off a highway sign that temporarily affected the ability of one or both drivers to see the traffic ahead of them. These are the types of factors a practiced lawyer in San Antonio knows to account for when handling any kind of case, no matter how seemingly insignificant or minor the damage might appear.

Sometimes, however, simplicity will not account for even a fraction of what has happened. In a wrongful death case, for instance, the option of pointing out the guilty party and making them pay is never simple. Even in criminal law, which can involve a jury and a timely and due process, the answers are not always readily available to even the most seasoned attorneys. When your situation seems to be more complicated than you could ever hope to figure out, we will be there as advocates for the injured to help you get to the root of the issue. Carabin Shaw’s experts in personal injury law are ready to advocate for you and ensure you get all the assistance you require.
