After being injured unexpectedly, you likely crave stability. Our personal injury lawyers serving Canadian, TX offer help in regaining that. By guiding you through the insurance claims process, helping you access medical care, and preparing you for a lawsuit filing, we can help you feel on firmer footing.
We Offer Tailored Financial Recovery for Your Personal Injury
Despite the wide variety of personal injury accidents, they all have one thing in common: Any losses could be covered by financial recovery from the responsible party. You could receive help with:
- Past and future medical bills
- Rehabilitation costs
- Psychological counseling
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Lost income
- Reduced earning ability
- New job training
Recovery is based on your ordeal. For instance, certain injuries not only cost more initially but carry long-term expenses, like a spinal cord injury. The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC) reports that first-year costs range from $375,000 to over $1 million; lifetime costs can reach $5 million.
We also consider career consequences. Past loss of wages, commissions, and side revenue can all be reimbursed. Likewise, we work with experts to project your future losses as well.
Intangible but Meaningful Losses
Intangible losses are ones that don’t relate to a specific bill or income loss. Instead, they are losses suffered in your personal life that, while not as easily quantifiable as a bill, are nonetheless significant.
Your financial recovery could include:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of parental guidance
- Loss of companionship
What losses apply to your case depends on the type of accident you suffered. For instance, loss of parental guidance provides for surviving children after a wrongful death. Loss of enjoyment of life refers to anything from disabilities that limit your independence to an inability to enjoy a once-fulfilling hobby.

This is just the foundation. We build on it by then offering help with insurance, evidence gathering, and identifying liable parties. If necessary, we will take your case to court by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
Personal injury cases typically involve insurance companies, either yours or that of another party. While insurance ostensibly should take care of injured parties, the goal of adjusters is to save the company money. Consequently, victims like you must deal with low settlement offers, pressure to settle, and even attempts to delegitimize you.
Our personal injury attorneys handle all communication with adjusters in your Canadian, TX case, and that’s just the beginning. We stand up for your right to take the time to review settlement offers. We explain offer terms to you in understandable language. Likewise, we help you understand what your claim is worth so that you don’t accept less than you deserve.
To determine if a settlement offer neglects parts of your experience, we gather and analyze evidence from your accident. Common information we collect includes:
- Police reports
- Photos and video
- Bystander accounts
- Expert testimony
- Medical records
- Accident reconstruction
- Drug and alcohol tests
- Phone records
- Social media posts
- Past complaints
- Timeline of events
For example, drug and alcohol tests may play a role in a truck accident. Reuters has reported that drug use is common among truck drivers, sometimes used to help them stay awake on long drives. We can use tests, driver history, transportation logs, and similar evidence to highlight a driver’s negligence.
Likewise, photos, video, and eyewitness testimony can help us form a timeline of events for a slip and fall. We can reconstruct how long a hazard was unaddressed, making the property owner liable. Evidence of the hazard can also underline your injuries’ severity.
These are just some examples. When our injury team works on your claim or lawsuit, we keep you informed of the evidence we compile and how it fits into your case.
Identifying Liable Parties
Our investigation into your accident can shed light on everyone who may have contributed to your injuries with their oversight. Negligent parties could range from drunk drivers to product manufacturers.
We can also navigate more complex cases of liability. For instance, the actions of truck drivers or business employees can be the responsibility of the companies that employ them. Likewise, hospitals and other healthcare centers can share liability with their doctors or staff. We can also determine if a government entity played a part.
We don’t just identify one possible liable party and only pursue that thread. Accidents are often the confluence of many choices made by several parties. By exploring all of them, we work to maximize your financial recovery.
Texas law generally permits personal injury victims to file a lawsuit within two years of the accident. That does not mean you should wait that long to explore any action, especially because some factors affect the amount of time you have.
Furthermore, statutes of limitations are put in place to help protect you. Placing a deadline on a case can preserve vital evidence. Additionally, the timeline can help us put pressure on liable parties to settle before we file a lawsuit. For that reason, don’t delay in consulting the personal injury lawyers serving Canadian, TX at D. Miller & Associates, PLLCᴿ.
