Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions

Personal injury cases arise when someone’s actions or lack of reasonable care cause harm or injury to another. These cases can include car crashes caused by distracted, careless, or drunk driving, defective products, dangerous conditions causing falls, and more. In some cases, a company’s choice not to take reasonable care about known potential dangers may result in personal injury cases. Personal injury cases aim to compensate the injured party for the damages they have suffered, such as lost wages, pain and suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement, future medical care, and other losses. It is important to consult with an experienced Personal Injury attorney to understand your legal rights and pursue a claim for what you have lost because of someone else’s inattention or lack of care.

In a personal injury case, you can recover damages for physical impairments, pain and suffering in the past, chronic pain, disfigurement, mental anguish, future medical care, lost wages, and other related harms and losses resulting from the injury you suffered. For example, if a fall or car wreck caused shoulder or back pain, you may have difficulty engaging in activities or performing chores. Texas law allows compensation for these limitations caused by someone else’s negligence.

However, insurance companies often undervalue the amount of compensation you are owed, particularly for pain and suffering, because those damages are not as easily quantifiable as medical expenses. This may result in you receiving less compensation than you are entitled to for the full extent of your damages. An experienced Personal Injury attorney can help you receive the full compensation you deserve and ensure that all of your damages are considered.

In Texas, you generally have two years from the date of the incident that caused the injury to file a personal injury claim in court. However, there are exceptions and nuances to the statute of limitations, so it is important to speak with a Personal Injury attorney to understand the specific requirements that apply to your case.

If you believe you have a personal injury case in Texas, take the following steps:

  1. Your health and safety are your top priority, so seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if your injuries seem minor. Some injuries may not be immediately apparent and can worsen over time.
  1. Document the incident by gathering and keeping any related evidence, such as photos of your vehicle or injuries, videos, witness statements, police reports, and medical records.
  1. Contact a Personal Injury attorney who can help you understand your legal rights and options, evaluate your case, guide you through the legal process, and handle all communication with the insurance adjuster.
