Types of Personal Injury Claims
There is a wide variety of accidents that can prompt a personal injury lawsuit, but we commonly represent clients in cases involving:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Texas is a fault state, which gives you the right to file a liability claim against the at-fault driver to obtain compensation for your losses related to an accident.
If a defective or dangerous product injured you, any party involved in that product’s chain of distribution might be liable for your injuries.
Property owners and managers in Texas have a responsibility to maintain their properties and keep them reasonably safe. If they fail to do so, they may be liable for any resulting injuries.
Healthcare providers are required to provide an acceptable standard of care. If their treatment or lack of it fails to meet this standard, they can be held responsible for patient injuries, illnesses, or wrongful deaths.
Surviving family members have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against those responsible for a loved one’s preventable death.
Who Can Be Held Liable for a Personal Injury in Baytown?
Any individual or entity responsible for causing your injury can be held liable, even if they are only partially to blame. The first step to holding someone accountable is identifying who took part in causing your injury, then gathering evidence to prove it. This can be done by your personal injury lawyer, who will launch an independent investigation into your accident.
Personal injury cases rely heavily on proving negligence. A party is considered negligent when their careless actions or failure to act caused another harm. To prove another party was negligent and therefore caused your injury, you and your attorney must present evidence that demonstrates the following:
The at-fault party owed you a duty of care. (e.g., the property owner must keep their premises reasonably safe for visitors)
The at-fault party breached his or her duty of care. (e.g., the property owner was aware of a hazard on the premises and failed to fix or remove it)
The breach of care directly caused your injuries. (e.g., medical records to prove you were injured, but also that the injury would not have occurred if not for the property owner’s breach of duty)
You suffered financial losses from these injuries.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, the at-fault party may be a government agency, a retail store, an apartment manager, etc. If your case is successful, you have the right to claim damages for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.
