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:

Negligence– 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. ((Larson, Aaron (17 January 2015). “Premises Liability Law”. Retrieved 24 August 2017.))

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.

When seeking representation for a personal injury case, it’s essential to ask your potential lawyer the right questions to ensure you have the best possible representation for your situation. Here are eight key questions you might consider asking:

  • Experience and Specialization
    • “How long have you been practicing personal injury law, and is it your primary area of expertise?”

    • “Based on the details I’ve provided, what is your assessment of my case, and what potential challenges do you foresee?”
  • Previous Results
    • “Can you provide examples of similar cases you’ve handled and their outcomes?”
  • Representation Structure
    • “Do you work on a contingency fee basis? If so, what percentage of the settlement or judgment will you take as your fee? Are there any upfront costs or fees?”
  • Litigation Experience
    • “If my case needs to go to trial, do you have trial experience, and how often do you go to court for your clients?”
  • Case Management
    • “Who will be handling my case primarily – you or another attorney? Will I have direct access to the attorney handling my case?”
