Texas Personal Injury FAQs
You may have a personal injury claim if you got hurt and it was someone else’s fault. Car accidents are the most common type of personal injury case in Texas. Other common types of injury claims involve truck crashes, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and slip and fall injuries on someone else’s property.
If you’ve been injured and believe someone else was to blame, get advice from a Texas injury lawyer right away.
After an accident, you probably have a lot of questions. One key question is whether you have a personal injury claim. In Texas, you have a personal injury claim if:
- The party that caused your injury was negligent. That means they didn’t live up to their duty to be careful about your safety. One common example is a driver who breaks traffic laws, like running a red light and hitting your car.
- That negligence caused your injuries. The negligence must have been the cause of the injuries you’re seeking compensation for. For example, when the driver who ran the red light hit you, you suffered a spinal cord injury.
- The injury results in harm or damages.You can receive compensation for damages such as loss of income and medical expenses, and even for pain and suffering.
The best way to know for sure is to talk to a Texas personal injury attorney. If you think you may have a personal injury case, contact us for a free consultation.
In Texas, an injured person can still get compensation if they were partly at fault. But there are limits. First, you can’t collect any damages if you were more than half to blame. If you were less than half responsible, you may still have a claim. But you won’t get all of your damages. Say you have $1,000,000 in damages. If the jury finds you 30% at fault, that $1,000,000 will be cut by 30%. You’ll be entitled to $700,000 instead of the full amount.
That saves the insurance company money. So, they like to say you were partly to blame. Our personal injury lawyers investigate the accident, collect evidence, and work with experts to show who was really at fault.
Texas has a two-year statute of limitations for injury cases. That means you have to settle your claim or file a lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident. If you miss that deadline, you lose your claim.
Two years may sound like a long time, but it’s best not to wait. The sooner your injury lawyer gets the case, the better chance they have to gather important evidence. An earlier start can also mean an earlier settlement or trial date. And, some types of claims have a shorter notice period.
The best way to protect your claim is to talk to a Texas personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
The best way to pursue a personal injury claim is to contact a Texas personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your injury. Insurance companies are not on your side. The less they pay in claims, the better their bottom line. If they seem eager to cut you a check, be very cautious. They may be hoping to get you to settle before you realize how much your claim is worth.
