Types of Compensation in an Austin Personal Injury Case
The nature and extent of compensation in an Austin personal injury case depends upon the facts and circumstances surrounding the accident and your injuries.
With that understood, a Doan Law Firm Austin personal injury lawyer typically seeks compensation for a client like you for losses, damages, and injuries that include:
medical bills and expenses
pain and suffering
mental anguish and emotional distress
property damage or loss
Our firm is committed to ensuring that you obtain complete compensation in your case. This includes not only financial recover for losses you have sustained to date, but also for losses you reasonably can be expected to face into the future.
If you are like many injured individuals, you may require medical care and treatment for an indefinite period of time. This can include physical rehabilitation.
You may also suffer pain for an extended period of time. You may not be able to return to work any time soon. Indeed, you may find yourself in a situation in which you will never be able to return to the job you held because of the aftereffects of your accident and the associated injuries.
These all represent examples of future losses you reasonably can be expected to face. These are losses we will fight to obtain compensation for you.
Punitive or Exemplary Damages
Depending on the facts of your case, you may also be entitled to what are known as punitive or exemplary damages. Punitive or exemplary damages represent additional financial compensation awarded to you in a personal injury lawsuit.
Punitive damages are awarded in a lawsuit when a determination is made that the conduct of the party that caused an accident is deemed to be particularly reckless or egregious. Punitive damages provide not only additional money to an injured individual like you, but they also serve as a means of punishing the party that caused the accident for especially reckless or egregious conduct.
Take a Proactive Approach to Protect Your Rights
You must take a proactive stance when it comes to protecting your legal rights in an Austin personal injury case. This includes seeking legal advice and assistance with all deliberate speed. As mentioned, The Doan Law Firm hotline is staffed around the clock and can be reached at (512) 806-0000.
The state of Texas places a limitation on the time by which you can file a personal injury lawsuit. According to Texas law, specifically a law called the statute of limitations, you have only two years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. If you miss the deadline, you likely will be precluded forever from filing a lawsuit for your injuries.
