Whether you've been injured in an automobile accident, on the job, or due to someone else's negligence, you may be wondering how to categorize your situation to see if you have legal recourse to seek monetary compensation.
While it's a good idea to talk to a qualified San Antonio personal injury lawyer about the specific details of your case, we usually break down civil litigation cases into three distinct categories:
Often, one of the first questions we hear is, "Do I have a case?" Answering this question usually requires some specific details, but you can review the following information so that you better understand the types of cases your San Antonio injury lawyer typically handles.
When you are injured due to someone else's negligence, or intentionally, you are legally entitled to seek compensation in a variety of ways. Keep in mind that a personal injury not only pertains to your body's physical injuries - it also applies to any emotional damage you've suffered.
This means that your attorney can seek reimbursement for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and possibly punitive damages. Common cases include:
There are countless other scenarios where an injury case may be applicable, so don't hesitate to speak with one of our San Antonio personal injury attorneys about your situation.
This one is pretty straightforward. If you've been injured in a car, motorcycle, or bike accident, you are entitled to seek compensation via the courts. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, your personal injury lawyer may seek compensation from your insurance company, a negligent party who caused the accident, or possibly both.
Your attorney will address whether you can sue for lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, or even seek punitive damages.
If someone in your family was killed due to another person's negligence, you may sue them for "wrongful death." A wrongful death case may even involve a homicide. Many of the wrongful death cases our San Antonio personal injury lawyers handle follow in the wake of a criminal trial. The standard of proof for a wrongful death trial is lower than that of a criminal trial, so someone may still be found liable for wrongful death whether or not they were convicted in criminal court.
If you are the representative of the decedent's estate, then you are legally entitled to seek compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills incurred prior to the death, funeral costs, and lost income. Obviously it makes sense to work with a San Antonio personal injury lawyer with experience handling these sensitive and often contentious cases.
Common wrongful death cases include:
There are many other scenarios in which a wrongful death law suit is applicable. Talk to one of our experienced lawyers for more details.
