Common Types of Personal Injury Cases
There are many types of personal injury cases we handle, including but not limited to:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
In the U.S., traffic collisions are the leading cause of personal injuries. There are approximately six million car accidents each year that result in an estimated three million injuries.
Physicians and other healthcare providers owe patients a higher legal duty of care. When a patient is injured by the negligence of a medical professional, they may be entitled to compensation.
Any party involved in the chain of distribution for a defective product may be liable for any injuries the product causes.
If you have been injured on another person’s property due to the owner’s improper care of the premises, you may be entitled to compensation.
When you suffer a severe injury at work, we can help you obtain the workers’ compensation benefits that you deserve or file a personal injury claim against a third party who was also liable.
When a loved one is killed because of the negligence of another party, surviving family members can pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.
Who Is Liable for My Injury?
Any party who played a role in causing your accident can be liable for your resulting injury. To prove another party should be held accountable, you must establish negligence by demonstrating the following elements:
Duty: The other party had a duty to act reasonably. For example, a driver owes a duty to others to prevent harm by following traffic laws and driving reasonably safe.
Breach: The at-fault party violated that duty. A driver may have violated their duty of care by driving while distracted.
Causation: The at-fault party’s violation of duty directly caused your injuries, and you would not have been injured but for the other person’s actions.
Damages: You must prove you suffered actual financial losses and the amount of damages you deserve.
Multiple parties can be at fault under Texas’s law of modified comparative negligence. This rule reduces a victim’s compensation in proportion to their share of fault. For instance, a victim who was speeding at the moment another car crashed into their vehicle may be found partially responsible for their injuries. In this case, if the victim is 40% liable and awarded $100,000, they would receive $60,000 or 60 percent of their award.
