Overview of Texas Personal Injury Law
There are four basic elements associated with Texas personal injury law. You are in a position to pursue a Texas personal injury claim if these elements are in place:
- Party that caused an accident had a legal duty of care to you. For example, a motorist on a public roadway must follow Texas driving laws.
- Party that caused an accident broke that legal duty of care. A motorist who speeds and causes an accident with you has violated that duty of care.
- Responsible party could reasonably believe his or her conduct could result in an accident. By way of example, a motorist who speeds reasonable can foresee that driving too fast can result in a wreck.
- Finally, the accident must result in actual injuries to you.
A Doan Law Firm Galveston personal injury lawyer at (409) 206-0000 can explain what is involved in pursuing a claim in more detail.
Common Types of Texas Accident Personal Injury Claims
Texas personal injuries come in many different forms. With that said, some of the most commonplace accident personal injuries in the Lone Star State include:
- Automobile collisions
- Slip and fall cases
- Medical malpractice
- Defective products
- Aquatic accidents
- Semi-truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Other types of incidents caused by others that result in injury
Time is of the Essence: When a Texas Personal Injury Lawsuit Must be Filed
Time is of the essence when it comes to pursuing a Texas personal injury claim. Insurance companies have specific deadlines associated with claims. In addition, the Texas judicial system has a timeframe within which a personal injury lawsuit must be filed.
In the state of Texas, a personal injury lawsuit typically must be filed within two years from the date of an accident. More often than not, the failure to meet this deadline can result in a person being forever precluded from pursuing a lawsuit for compensation arising from injuries sustained in an accident caused by someone else.
Justice, Accountability, and Compensation in a Galveston Personal Injury Case
Following an accident caused by someone else, justice and accountability takes the form of financial compensation for injuries, damages, and losses. The facts of a specific case govern financial recovery in a personal injury case. With that said, examples of injuries and losses a Galveston personal injury lawyer from our firm pursue include:
- Medical bills and expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Physical disability
- Mental anguish and emotional distress
- Lost wages
In some cases, a Galveston personal injury attorney will also seek for a client what are known as punitive damages. This represents additional compensation in a case in which the conduct that resulted in injuries is considered to be particularly reckless or egregious.
