Recovering Damages from a Personal Injury

When you (or a loved one) suffer because another person was careless or negligent, you could recover damages. How much your case is worth depends on a few factors, including:

  • The extent of your injuries
  • The severity of your injuries
  • Your expected prognosis
  • The nature of the accident or injury

A personal injury lawyer from our team can assess the scope of your case to valuate your damages, both current and future.

Types of Damages from a Personal Injury

There are basically two kinds of damages that you might recover when you are injured and someone else is to blame:

  • Special damages (sometimes called economic damages)
  • General damages (sometimes called intangible damages)

Special damages may include:

  • Medical bills for expenses such as ambulance, surgery, hospitalization, medical tests, prescription medicine, crutches or wheelchairs, and rehabilitation recovery
  • Lost pay for the time you could not work because of your injuries
  • Reduced earning ability or loss of income if your injuries leave you disabled and unable to return to your job or unable to work at all
  • Childcare and other expenses if your injuries prevent you from taking care of your children or others who rely on you

General damages often include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of personal reputation due to disability or disfigurement

A personal injury lawyer with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ will vigorously pursue both special and general damages on your behalf. You should not suffer twice from someone’s reckless behavior.

How Our Firm May Help You After a Personal Injury

Texas has complex liability and negligence laws. When you pursue damages from another party, it is on you to show how he or she is responsible. That is a task most people are not willing to tackle alone, particularly when they are sick or injured. We can handle every aspect of this task for you, however.

Our client-centered services include:

  • Free case evaluation at your home or the hospital
  • Prompt return of your phone call or email
  • Regular status updates about your case
  • Connections to medical providers and other services, if necessary
  • Investigation abilities to gather evidence, testimony, and documentation
  • Regular Facebook livestream events to answer our clients’ questions

We treat our clients as if they were family members. D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ is also an engaged community partner that supports several local charities.

Seek Out Our Team for Help as Soon as You Are Injured

One of our personal injury lawyers serving McKinney is ready to help. You can call our team as soon as you know that you are injured. Texas has a statute of limitations, or deadline, for filing a personal injury lawsuit.

Under Texas law, the statute of limitations for a personal injury lawsuit and a wrongful death lawsuit is generally two years from the date of injury or the date of passing. Depending on the type of case you were involved with, however, your deadline to file suit may be shorter or longer. We can tell you how the statute of limitations may affect your case.

Evidence Is Also Time-Sensitive

It is wise to call someone from our team as soon as possible to make sure that evidence is available. Evidence that can be used against a liable party is sometimes removed, repaired, or replaced before you have a chance to collect it.

Understanding When You Have a Case for Compensation

You may have a personal injury case when another person injures you physically and/or emotionally because of negligence, carelessness, or omission.

You could recover damages from the other party for your medical expenses, lost pay, property damage, or mental anguish. There are a few factors to consider before you pursue this financial recovery:

  • Did the other person owe you a duty of care to avoid harming you through actions that any reasonable person would take in a similar circumstance?
  • Did the other person breach this duty of care in some manner?
  • Did this negligence cause your injuries?
  • Do you have damages due to these injuries?

Our lawyers serving McKinney can clarify these factors and identify all liable parties.
