What Is Personal Injury Law in Texas?
Under personal injury law, you have the right to pursue compensation for your losses and damages when they are caused by another through negligence, carelessness, or deliberate malice.
Incidents and accidents that can lead to legal claims can stem from:
- Car accidents
- Trucking accidents
- Bus and other public transportation accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Construction accidents caused by third parties
- Accidents at worksites, including oil rigs, refineries, pipelines, and more
- Swimming pool drownings
- Dog attacks
- Criminal attacks
- Slip and fall accidents
- Wrongful death
Injuries in such events can range from sprains, cuts and bruises, and road rash to internal injuries, broken bones, back and neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, severe burns, and traumatic brain injuries. In the most severe of these, you could be facing the need for lifelong medical care and therapies, permanent loss of income, out-of-pocket expenses to pay for home and vehicle modifications to accommodate permanent disability, daily personal assistance, and more. Your quality of life may be permanently diminished all because of the wrongdoing of another person, persons, business, or even a negligent government agency.
