We File Your Insurance Claim While You Rest
You may be contacted by an insurance adjuster while you are recovering from your injuries. A lawyer with our firm can speak on your behalf.
We can file your insurance claim and:
- Collect documentation of your injuries and damages
- Negotiate for a fair settlement
- Prepare a case for court if negotiations fall through
You have two years from the date you were injured to file a personal injury lawsuit under Texas law. It takes time to build a case and prepare for court, so it is advised that you consult with our law firm as soon as possible.
Our Best Practices When Handling Your Case
Texas has specific guidelines for personal injury cases, including:
- The burden of proof is on the plaintiff (the injured party).
- Both the plaintiff and the defendant (the other party) have the right to have an attorney represent them.
- Lawsuits must be filed before the deadline (statute of limitations) runs out.
- Once you have accepted a settlement or a verdict, you cannot seek additional damages from the same party through another insurance claim or lawsuit.
We are here to help you understand your legal rights. Your case is assigned to an attorney, not an associate, and you will be given your lawyer’s cell phone number for easier communication.
Damages We Can Help You Recover
Compensatory damages for a highway accident are divided into general and special. General damages are for losses such as pain and suffering. Special damages are tangible expenses such as medical bills or reimbursement for lost wages.
Each accident case is different. You may have extensive injuries or a prolonged recovery. These factors can affect what type of damages you may recover and their worth.
Some of the more common damages associated with a highway accident include:
- Medical care and treatment (both present and future)
- Household services or childcare if you cannot take care of your children
- Lost pay for missed work because of injuries
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
We may also pursue damages for disability and disfigurement if applicable.
How We Build Your Case To Seek Financial Recovery
A lawyer from our firm can work to prove the responsible party’s liability in your case by:
- Collecting evidence, testimony, and documentation of wrongdoing or liability by the other party
- Securing proof of your injuries and talking to your doctor about your prognosis
- Taking depositions from witnesses and other knowledgable parties
- Identifying and communicating with liable parties
Conditions of Liability in a Highway Accident Case
There are four conditions of liability that must be met to seek damages for your bodily injuries:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care to avoid harming you through reasonable measures, such as obeying the speed limit or not following you too closely.
- The defendant breached this duty of care in some manner, either through negligence, omission, or intent.
- This breach caused you to suffer bodily injury.
- These injuries resulted in damages that caused you emotional and economic harm.
