One critical aspect of personal injury claims in Texas is that it operates as a "fault state." This means that the person or entity responsible for causing the injury is liable for the damages incurred. Establishing fault is pivotal in these cases, and we are adept at uncovering evidence to substantiate your claim.
Comparative Negligence Rule
Texas follows a comparative negligence rule, which can affect the amount of compensation you receive. Under this rule, your compensation may be reduced in proportion to your degree of fault in the accident. Our attorneys are well-versed in handling cases involving comparative negligence and will work diligently to ensure you receive fair compensation.
Statute of Limitations
It's important to be aware of the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas. This legal time limit restricts the period during which you can file a lawsuit. Failing to file within this time frame can bar you from seeking compensation. Our legal team will ensure your claim is filed within the applicable statute of limitations.
Filing a Personal Injury Claim
When it comes to filing a personal injury claim, there are several avenues to consider:
Against Your Own Insurance
In some cases, you may need to file a claim with your own insurance company, especially if the at-fault party is underinsured or uninsured. Our attorneys can guide you through this process, fighting for you to receive the maximum benefits available under your policy.
Against the At-Fault Person or Entity
When pursuing a claim against the at-fault party, our legal team will employ a strategic approach to establish liability and seek the compensation you deserve. We have a proven track record of holding negligent individuals and entities accountable.
If a fair settlement cannot be reached through negotiation, our experienced litigators are prepared to take your case to court. We will vigorously represent your interests in litigation, aiming for the most favorable outcome.
Damages available in personal injury cases can include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. The specific damages you may be eligible for will depend on the circumstances of your case. Our attorneys will work diligently to assess your damages and pursue full and fair compensation on your behalf.
