How We Work
Since 2002, D. Miller & Associates, PLLC has helped clients recover damages after they are injured through no fault of their own. Although past results cannot guarantee future outcomes, we will do all we can to resolve your case successfully.
Our process includes:
- Carefully assessing the circumstances of events surrounding your injury.
- Evaluating your injuries using information and input from your healthcare provider (with your permission).
- Determining who is responsible for your injuries (in some instances, there may be several liable parties).
The statute of limitations on personal injury lawsuits is two years from the date of your injury to take legal action, according to Texas Law. That is why we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible to make sure you may take full advantage of all legal options.
Proving Negligence for a Personal Injury
In personal injury cases, you typically must prove that another party is negligent. To do this, we will investigate your case and gather the evidence to prove the following:
- Duty of care: The other party owed you a duty of care, or they were supposed to take measures to protect the safety of others.
- Breach of duty: The other party breached their duty of care to you.
- Causation: The breach of duty of care caused an accident that you suffered injuries from.
- Damages: The accident and your resulting injuries caused you to have expenses and other losses.
We Seek Recovery for Your Injuries and Damages
Many personal injury cases include a trip to the emergency room. If you must be admitted, the average cost for a three-day hospital stay is around $30,000, according to the U.S. Department of Medicare & Medicaid Services.
You should not have to suffer financially when you already have physical and emotional injuries because of someone’s reckless act.
A lawyer with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC will pursue recovery that might include such expenses as:
- Ambulance and emergency room care.
- Imaging and medical tests.
- Specialists and doctor visits.
- Prescription medicines.
- Rehabilitation and follow-up treatment.
- Lost pay while you were injured.
- Diminished earning ability if you cannot return to your previous job or work at all because of your injuries.
- Property damage and related expenses, such as rental car fees.
- Pain and suffering.
- Mental anguish.
We will carefully assess your injuries and damages as we pursue recovery on your behalf.
Our Recommendations After a Personal Injury
We know that the first few moments, hours, and days after a personal injury or accident can be chaotic.
As personal injury lawyers, we suggest the following actions to protect your health, safety, and legal rights:
- Call 9-1-1 for life-threatening injuries, accidents, or if you are in immediate danger.
- Get medical attention.
- Politely decline to speak to an insurance adjuster until you have a chance to talk to a member of our team.
We also suggest that you do not post comments or pictures on social media, as this could jeopardize your case.
