Why You Need a South Texas Personal Injury Attorney

There are numerous benefits to having a personal injury lawyer represent you, in addition to the knowledge and experience they have in the laws related to your case. Following an injury or accident, you may be facing a lengthy recovery, which can lead to a great deal of stress for both you and your family. With a lawyer on your side, you will:

  • Know the value of your claim. Once you are aware of your claim’s worth, you will be protected from settling with an insurance company for an unfair amount. Although you can reasonably expect a call from an insurance company after an accident, you can count them offering an amount that is far below the value of your claim. Insurance companies are for-profit companies that are only interested in their bottom line.
  • Be guided through the legal process. A Texas personal injury attorney has a deep understanding of the personal injury claim process. As well as what it takes to mediate and settle your case, and if necessary, try your claim in court.
  • Increase the odds of winning. The chances of receiving a large settlement are far greater when you are advocated for by a Texas personal injury lawyer. They have the resources necessary to build a strong and compelling case on your behalf.

Common Causes of Personal Injuries

A personal injury applies to any injury that results from another person’s negligence, intentional acts, or strict liability.

Some of the most common causes are:

Personal injury victims have the legal right to pursue financial compensation for any losses. That typically includes medical treatment, lost income, property damage, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and more.

Understanding Personal Injury Claims in Texas

In Texas, a personal injury claim is a legal action taken by an individual who has suffered harm due to the negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct of another party. This type of claim aims to provide financial redress for the physical, emotional, and financial damages the injured party has endured.

Personal injury claims in Texas can arise from a variety of circumstances, including automobile accidents, slip and fall incidents, workplace injuries, medical malpractice, and more. For instance, if a driver runs a red light and collides with another vehicle, causing injury to the occupants, the injured may pursue a personal injury claim against the negligent driver. Similarly, if a property owner fails to address a known hazard and a visitor sustains injuries as a result, the injured visitor may seek compensation through a personal injury claim.

Our firm combines strong negotiation skills, readiness for litigation to ensure fair settlements, and expert evaluations to objectively assess each case’s strengths and weaknesses.

Types of Compensation Available in a Texas Personal Injury Claim

The primary purpose of a personal injury lawsuit is to make the victim whole again following an unexpected accident. Compensation, also known as damages, can be awarded for various losses and hardships resulting from the injury. If you plan to file a Texas personal injury claim, you can recover a settlement to help pay for:

  • Medical Expenses: You have the right to claim compensation for past and future medical expenses that you require due to the injury. This may include hospital stays, surgeries, medication, and any rehabilitative therapies.
  • Lost Wages: If the injury has led to time away from work, you may recover compensation for wages lost during your recovery period. You can also recover damages for loss of earning capacity if the injury affects your ability to earn income in the future.
  • Pain and Suffering: You can seek compensation for the physical pain and emotional distress experienced due to the injury. Examples of pain and suffering damages include post-traumatic stress disorder, permanent disability, and loss of quality of life.
  • Property Damage: If your personal property was damaged as a result of the incident that led to the injury, you can claim compensation to help pay for repairs or replacements.
  • Punitive Damages: In situations where the defendant’s actions were particularly egregious or reckless, punitive damages may be awarded as a way to punish the offender and deter similar conduct in the future.
