Popular Personal Injury Question:

What Damages Can I Receive?

The purpose of damages in personal injury cases is to compensate the injured party. In some cases, it can be challenging to assign a dollar amount. Money can’t “fix” most injuries. But, the goal is to try and minimize any future ramifications of the event.

What Type of Injuries Can I Receive Compensation?

Depending on the event and type of injury, the different types of damages include:

  • Medical Bills | Lost Wages | Emotional Distress
  • Punitive Damages | Pain & Suffering

Personal Injury Claims

So, what exactly is a personal injury? These are injuries that you likely wouldn’t have suffered if another person had been careful to avoid harming you. Unsure of where your claim falls when it comes to personal injury? The following list describes some of the more common types of personal injury claims we see:

Automotive Accidents 

When a collision involving a car accident, motorcycle, or truck injures you, you may need help communicating with your insurance company to get the settlement you need. If insurance is not willing to help you, it might be time to escalate your claim further:


Whether you were involved in an accident that made you end up in the hospital or you are a victim of doctor negligence, you are entitled to compensations for your injuries or injuries a loved one endured.

Premise Liability

 Premises liability may range from things from “injuries caused by a variety of hazardous conditions, including open excavations, uneven pavement, standing water, crumbling curbs, wet floors, uncleared snow, icy walks, falling objects, inadequate security, insufficient lighting, concealed holes, improperly secured mats, or defects in chairs or benches”. Premises liability law is the body of law which makes the person who is in possession of land or premises responsible for certain injuries suffered by persons who are present on the premises.

Other Personal Injury Claim Types

 While auto accidents are perhaps the greatest cause of injury in Texas, they are by no means the only one. Other causes of injury, which may warrant a personal injury claim, include:

  • Pedestrian accidents | Bicycle accidents | Defective products

Questions You Might Have


Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?


After an injury or accident, filing a personal injury claim may seem unnecessary. However, getting the compensation you deserve might be more difficult than you assume. Insurance companies may deny your claim, and medical bills can pile up. Without appropriate legal representation, you may be stuck with costs that you cannot afford. This is where a personal injury attorney can help.

How Much Compensation Will I Receive?


The easiest damages to calculate the value of will be your economic damages. This category includes any financial losses you’ve suffered because of your accident—both current and future. Include your medical expenses, lost wages, any property damage, and any other economic costs tied to your injuries. These damages are usually determined by adding the costs together and estimating future expenses.

Noneconomic damages, on the other hand, are paid for intangible losses. These losses included mental anguish, as well as physical pain and suffering. If the injury has resulted in severe impairment, family members may even recover damages for loss of companionship.
