Proving Negligence in Your Case
An injury lawyer from our firm will work tirelessly to prove negligence in your case. Texas law requires that four primary elements be demonstrated in order for negligence to be established in your case.
First, a duty of care must exist. For example, a motorist must operate a car in a reasonably safe manner. Second, that duty of care must be breached. A motorist running a red light is an example of a breach of the duty of car.
Third, the breach of the duty of care must be what legally is known as the proximate cause of the accident and your injuries. In other words, the breach of the duty of care must be the actual and legal cause of the accident and your associated injuries.
Finally, you must sustain actual injuries. You cannot make a case for negligence if you sustained not real losses, damages, or injuries from the accident.
Your Accident and the Statute of Limitations
Texas law includes what is called a statute of limitations. The statute of limitations sets a strict timeline by which a personal injury lawsuit must be filed. A personal injury lawsuit must be filed with the court within two years of an accident.
Facing Down an Insurance Company
Directly after being injured in an accident, you likely will find yourself facing a huge insurance company after you file a claim for compensation. The reality is that an insurance company is not committed to ensuring that you obtain the financial recovery you deserve in your case. In fact, an insurance company has specific goals that run counter to providing you an appropriate claim settlement.
Insurance companies are in business for one primary reason. Insurers are in business to make money for their stockholders, not to fairly settle claims. In fact, the stockholders of insurance companies make more money when the amount paid out in claim settlements is reduced.
A Doan Law Firm lawyer knows the strategies to employ to face down and take on an insurance company. Our legal team is not afraid to tirelessly fight an insurance company in our quest to obtain fair and complete compensation for you.
Fight for the Compensation Your Deserve
A personal injury lawyer from our firm will always fight for the compensation you deserve in your case. The facts surrounding the accident, and your injuries, govern the nature and extent of compensation in your case.
With that said, examples of losses for which an Austin personal injury lawyer from our firm will seek financial compensation include:
pain and suffering
mental anguish and emotional distress
