The following types of compensation are typically recoverable in personal injury claims.
Texas courts operate under a modified comparative negligence system. This law is used when considering negligence in an accident by assigning each party involved a percentage of fault that proportionally reduces their compensation. For example, if you are awarded $100,000 but found 20% at fault for your injuries, you will receive 80% or $80,000 in compensation. However, the state adds a further element to comparative negligence, known as the 51% bar rule. If either party is 51% or more at fault for the accident, they are barred from receiving compensation.
