An experienced Kingwood personal injury lawyer will have a thorough knowledge of how the court system works and the laws applicable to your case. They will be able to assess and determine your claim’s value and will not be intimidated by insurance adjusters or other attorneys to settle for less. Your attorney will also handle the following on your behalf:
Communication with the at-fault parties and their insurance companies.
Investigate your accident and collect vital evidence.
Identify liable parties.
Gather medical records, pay stubs, W-2s, and any other documentation related to your losses.
Obtain any needed medical and financial expert opinions.
Negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance companies.
File any legal documents and litigate your case in court if necessary.
Most personal injury lawyers in Kingwood take cases on a contingency basis, which means there are no upfront costs, and you must only pay legal fees if you win.
Common Types of Personal Injury Cases
Any accident can lead to injury, but we commonly represent clients who have been harmed in:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Car accidents are the number one cause of personal injury in the U.S. We can help you recover compensation from the at-fault driver.
Premises Liability Injuries
Premises liability refers to accidents that occur on another’s property. Property owners and managers are required to keep their premises reasonably safe for visitors. If their failure in that duty causes you injury, they may be held liable for damages.
Although legal action typically cannot be taken against employers, we can investigate if a third party is also responsible and can be held liable for your injury.
If a healthcare provider failed to provide treatment that met the appropriate standard of care, they may be held accountable for any resulting injuries or illnesses.
These are only a few of the many types of cases our firm handles.
Types of Compensation Available
If you have suffered a severe injury as a result of another’s negligence, an attorney can help you hold them accountable for the following types of damages:
Medical Bills (current and future)
Lost Wages (current and future)
Damage to Property (if applicable)
Pain and Suffering
Punitive Damages (in cases involving egregious behavior or extreme recklessness)
Keep in mind that Texas is a “modified comparative negligence” state. That means you can recover damages from another party, even if you hold part of the blame. However, you must be 50 percent or less at fault, and your compensation will be reduced accordingly. For example, if you are awarded $10,000 and found 20% at fault, you will receive 80% of your award or $8,000. If you are found 51% to blame, you won’t get anything.
