What is a Personal Injury?
Personal injury law is a field of civil law. It allows victims to file a claim or sue in court to recover compensation for their injuries. For a victim to recover their losses, their injuries need to be the result of someone else’s negligent, reckless, or intentional misconduct.
A personal injury can include any of the following:
Mental or emotional anguish;
Personal injury law is separate from criminal law. In criminal law, the state seeks to punish wrongdoers through fines and jail time.
Common types of personal injury accidents include:
Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents;
Bicycle and pedestrian accidents;
Premises liability accidents;
Product liability accidents;
Workplace injury accidents;
Medical malpractice; and
Wrongful death accidents.
Compensation for Personal Injuries
The victim of a personal injury has a right to fair compensation for his or her injuries and any related losses from the at-fault party. Compensation in a personal injury claim usually comes from an insurance company, since most individuals and companies carry some type of accident insurance.
The amount of compensation in a personal injury claim varies according to:
The parties involved;
The type of accident;
The severity and extent of the victim’s injuries; and
The overall effect of the accident on the victim’s life.
There are two types of damages available in a personal injury case. These are economic damages and non-economic damages.
Economic damages are damages with a specific cost or accountable dollar amount, such as:
Physical therapy and rehabilitation;
Future earnings; and
Future medical expenses.
Non-economic damages have no affixable dollar amount and may include:
Pain and suffering;
Mental and emotional trauma;
Loss of enjoyment of life; and
Loss of consortium.
If a victim dies at the accident scene or later due to accident-related injuries, the immediate family may file a wrongful death claim. A successful wrongful death claim reimburses the victim’s estate for the victim’s personal losses and compensates the family for personal and financial losses resulting from their loved one’s death.
A civil court can award punitive damages to a victim in cases of extreme disregard or intentional negligence by the at-fault party. These damages are to punish the wrongdoer and to deter similar actions by others in the future.
Do Personal Injury Cases Have a Time Limit?
The time limit, or statute of limitations, as provided by the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003, is two years for most personal injury cases in Texas. This means you have two years from the time the injury occurred to file a claim or lawsuit. However, it is always best to contact a personal injury attorney who can use their legal resources to ensure that you do not miss the deadline.
