Most of us take reasonable precautions to avoid those around us from experiencing preventable harm. Unfortunately, many people still fall victim to the negligence of others, and the injuries they suffer can have long-term or even permanent impacts on their lives.
If your injury resulted from someone else’s recklessness or failure to act when necessary, D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™, can help you pursue financial recovery for your losses.
You Can Count on Our Personal Injury Lawyers for Help with Your Case
We understand that the pain from your injury may not only interfere with your ability to complete daily tasks but may also prevent you from returning to work. Without the ability to earn an income, your mounting medical bills may feel overwhelming. We know you may not be able to hire a lawyer right now, which is why you do not owe us anything unless we are successful in recovering your losses for you.
Our primary goal is to achieve financial recovery for you, so we take every step to make that happen. We will start by speaking with you about your case, asking questions that can help us decide on an approach. We also will conduct a thorough investigation into the circumstances of your injury so that we can establish liability and seek the recovery you deserve.
Proving the Negligence that Led to Your Injury
Pursuing financial awards in your case requires proving that another person caused your injury because of their negligence. As the Legal Information Institute (LII) explains, negligence is failing to behave with the same level of care that a reasonable person would have under the same circumstances. This may include acting inappropriately or failing to act altogether.
Criteria for negligence include:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
Duty of care refers to the responsibility the person has to keep you safe by acting reasonably, such as following the rules of the road or keeping their property maintained. If they failed to do this or breached their duty to you, and it led to the injuries that left you with damages, this person’s actions meet the criteria for negligence.
Pursuing Financial Recovery for You
Damages and award amounts in personal injury cases vary depending on factors, such as the extent of the victim’s injuries and whether the victim can work. A personal injury lawyer serving Frisco can determine the types of financial recovery you can pursue in your case, which may include:
- Emergency medical care, treatments, therapy, medications, equipment, follow-up appointments, and other injury-related healthcare costs
- Wages you lost because of the time you took off from work
- Loss of future earnings if your injury caused you to suffer a temporary or permanent disability that prevents you from returning to work
- Pain and suffering for your physical, mental, and emotional distress
Our lawyers cannot promise a specific amount of financial recovery in your case, but we do promise that we will pursue every dollar you deserve. Contact D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ to speak with our legal team about your personal injury case.
Fighting Back Against Unethical Insurance Company Practices
Just as our goal is to achieve financial recovery for you, insurance companies have a goal to keep you from receiving a settlement for your injuries. Victims often find when they handle their claims on their own that the adjuster they speak with may pretend to have their best interest in mind and offer them what seems like a generous settlement offer. The victims may later find that they were low-balled and that the settlement does not cover their losses.
Some other ways adjusters may try to take advantage of you to avoid affecting the company’s profit include:
- Undervaluing your injuries
- Attempting to place the blame on you
- Telling you they need more information from you
- Trying to scare you out of hiring a lawyer by telling you that a lawyer would just take your whole settlement
- Denying your claim
If an insurance company offers you a settlement, you have a right to reject it and contact a personal injury lawyer serving Frisco to take over all communications with the insurance company for you. We know the tactics adjusters use, and we will fight against them to negotiate a fair settlement in your case.
Filing Your Case Before the Time Limit Is Up
Injury victims have a limited time under Texas law to proceed with their case against the liable party and seek financial recovery for their losses. According to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §16.003, victims generally have up to two years from the date of the incident to file a personal injury case, although there are exceptions in certain circumstances.
Our lawyers can calculate how much time you have left to file your lawsuit and get started as soon as possible so that you do not miss your chance to take legal action against the negligent party in your case.
