Personal Injury Claims
Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
Personal injury can happen instantly to anyone at anytime and anyplace. In Texas, citizens fall victim to a range of careless mistakes and harmful accidents every day. From automobile accidents to vicious dog bites, from medical mistakes to a harmful defective products — anyone can quickly and unexpectedly get hurt through no fault of their own. Perhaps you are one of the many Americans who suffer day in and day out because of exposure to harmful materials or repetitive movements at work. Perhaps you or your child received a birth injury caused by negligence during childbirth or clear-cut medical malpractice. Perhaps a freak truck accident may have caused you to become disabled, and now you’re unable to work using the skills you had trained for. Perhaps your family has suffered financially and emotionally from your inability to contribute as you had previously been able to. It’s time to get your life back on track.
If you are reading these words, that means you care about taking control of your future again. Keep in mind that the statute of limitations in Texas can keep you from filing a claim and pursuing legal action after a certain number of years has passed since the incident. Different injuries have different lengths of time associated with them, so act quickly.

In addition, your winning case will yield damages to reimburse you for damages like property damage, lost income, lifetime medical bills, pain and suffering, and emotional distress resulting from your injury. Settlements either come in the form of a lump sum or a series of set payments, called a structured settlement. However, don’t think that personal injury lawsuits are just frivolous lawsuits out to collect free money from large corporations. These suits are legitimate, bona fide cases where people just like you have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Medical bills piling up? Behind on the mortgage because you can’t work? Is your relationship with friends and family strained because you feel a sense of pity — or even shame? There is no need to feel shame. Understand that emotional and mental stress is common in personal injury cases. You did not ask for the injury. You have every right to regain control of your life — you are entitled to compensation from the guilty party, and supporting yourself financially is where it all starts.
Your Pain and Suffering Is Worth It
If you’ve been wrongfully injured, the law entitles you to compensation from liable parties. A layperson would argue that it is simply the right thing to do, anyways, but sometimes people or businesses just can’t be bothered to do that unless legal action is taken. Figuring out what your injury is worth in dollar amounts for compensation (otherwise known in personal injury law as “damages”) purposes can be difficult. While it can be relatively simple to add up things like property damage, past medical bills, future medical bills, and lost wages, how do you put a number on physical pain, let alone mental and emotional distress? What if you can no longer enjoy hobbies you once used to because of injuries? What if the injury accident causes sleep loss, anxiety, or other emotional distress? What if you no longer have the same companionship with your spouse? A qualified personal injury lawyer can help you sort out how much your injury is really worth. Ultimately, the amount of damages you end up with is ultimately decided either by a settlement, which involves insurance companies, attorneys, and the involved parties, or in court by a judge or jury after a trial.
