Personal Injury Law in Texas
Lawsuits are designed to pay someone back for the expenses related to their injuries. For instance, you can be compensated for your medical bills or any property damage related to your accident. If your injury forced you to miss work, a civil case can reimburse your lost wages. When an injury forces you to miss out on a career opportunity, you could even receive payback for your lost potential income.
The court can also reward a plaintiff, the person filing the lawsuit, “non-economic” damages. If your injury caused you undue pain and suffering, you could receive extra money. The worse your pain and the longer it lasted, the more money you could get.
Texas operates under a “comparative negligence” model. This means that if the court believes you were somehow responsible for your own injuries, you could receive less compensation in a lawsuit. Allow our team to present your entire story to the court. We may be able to prove that the damages were not your fault, helping you keep all of your deserved reimbursement.
Car Accident Injuries
Personal injury revolves around negligence. This is what someone failed to do. For instance, when someone is speeding, they are failing to obey proper traffic laws.
Our team can investigate the details of your car accident. We can use medical records and physical evidence to help prove the other driver’s negligence. Normally, their insurance will pay your legal restitution. If the insurance company does not cooperate, we can take the fight to them next.
Businesses must take the utmost care of their visitors because customers are the very reason for their existence. If you slip and hurt yourself on business property, this is likely due to negligence. Parking lots must remain free of potholes and slippery surfaces, and shopping aisles should be clear of obstructions and spills.
If you’ve been hurt on business grounds, you could be entitled to civil justice. Talk to our team about your accident, and we may be able to help you seek restitution.
Wrongful Death Lawsuits
In personal injury cases, you normally sue someone for the harm you suffered. When someone you love is killed in an accident, you can file a lawsuit on their behalf. This is called a wrongful death suit, where someone’s negligence led to another’s death.
The deceased’s immediate family or estate representative can file this suit. The court can compensate plaintiffs for expenses related to the injury such as medical and funeral bills. Families can also receive damages for their pain and suffering, lost income, loss of support or companionship, and more.
Our attorneys understand how difficult and sensitive such lawsuits can be. We approach our clients with care and compassion, and we are here to help you with this difficult time.
