What is Personal Injury?

Houston Personal Injury Lawyers handle cases where an individual or organization’s actions or negligence lead to personal injury. In the typical personal injury case, the injured party seeks compensation from the responsible party’s insurance company. Individuals, businesses, or other entities can be held accountable for significant injuries.

How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Case?

Determining if you have a valid personal injury case requires proving:

  1. Negligence – The other party acted carelessly or failed to take reasonable precautions which led to your injury.
  2. Causation – Your injury was directly caused by the other party’s negligent actions or inaction.
  3. Damages – You suffered tangible losses related to factors like medical treatment, lost income, disability or pain/suffering as a result.

Some examples of common scenarios that may constitute a personal injury case:

An experienced personal injury lawyer can analyze the details of your specific incident to advise if you have a valid claim under Texas state law. We provide free case evaluations – call AK Law Firm today to discuss your situation with our legal team.

 

What Steps to Take Before Making a Personal Injury Claim?

Before making an injury claim, be sure to:

  • Check that you are within the 2 year statute of limitations for filing a claim
  • Review your insurance policy coverage and exclusions
  • Document your injuries and losses as thoroughly as possible (photos, medical records, etc.)
  • Avoid posting about the incident on social media

How to File an Injury Claim in 10 Steps

  1. File a police report if applicable
  2. Take photos of damage/injuries
  3. Review your insurance coverage
  4. Notify your insurance company of the incident
  5. Prepare documentation for the claims adjuster
  6. Review the settlement offer carefully
  7. Receive claim payment and complete repairs

Who Can Be Held Liable for My Houston Personal Injury?

All personal injury cases hinge on the negligence theory, requiring you and your attorney to amass evidence to satisfy the following four elements:

  • The at-fault party owed you a duty of care.
  • The at-fault party breached their duty of care.
  • The breach of care directly caused your injuries.
  • You are entitled to collect damages in your lawsuit to recover from these injuries.

When pursuing a personal injury lawsuit, it is possible to target either an individual or multiple parties. The responsible party in your case may be another driver, a property owner, a government agency, or even a medical professional.

To establish liability in your lawsuit, your initial course of action should involve consulting a Houston personal injury attorney. They possess the necessary expertise to launch an investigation into your severe accident, utilizing resources and connections that may exceed your own capabilities. Through their assistance, you will be able to identify the appropriate parties to include in your claim and assess the potential settlement amount.

Remember to consult Houston personal injury lawyers to determine liability and pursue your claim effectively.

Personal Injury Accident FAQs

Yes, you can claim damages for physical and emotional pain/distress caused by the negligence of another party. The amount depends on injury severity.

Yes, under Texas law claims can be made for emotional distress damages related to mental anguish, anxiety, PTSD, depression or other psychological injuries caused by another party’s negligence. Compensation depends on clear documentation demonstrating the emotional impact.

Average settlement range: While settlement amounts span across a broad range depending on case specifics, data indicates the average is between $3,000-$75,000. Severe injuries and high medical costs can result in 7 and even 8 figure rewards. Our lawyers maximize recovery through proven negotiation tactics.

Pain and suffering, as well as emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and other intangible losses are subjective damages without definitive monetary value. The commonly used “multiplier method” involves adding up medical expenses, lost income, and other tangible damages and then multiplying that number by a factor between 1.5 and 5. The multiplier used depends on the unique circumstances and severity of the case. Our lawyers determine the appropriate multiplier based on prior case verdicts and settlements.

We assist with your medical treatment/expenses, negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf, consult experts to maximize your settlement value, and make sure you receive full and fair compensation.

Settlement negotiations can vary greatly depending on the complexity of the case. However, most straightforward injury claims with clear liability and damages can be settled in 1-3 months after documentation is provided and each side has assessed the claim value. More complex cases involving disputed fault, extensive injuries, or multiple parties can take 6-12 months or longer to resolve through negotiation before trial becomes necessary.

You should hire an attorney immediately as there are deadlines for filing lawsuits and evidence/witnesses can disappear quickly. Early representation is key.

No. Anything you say can be used against you to try and deny/minimize your claim. Politely decline providing an on the record statement before consulting an attorney.

The most common causes we see are car accidents, slip/trip & falls, workplace accidents, dog bites, medical malpractice, construction accidents, and product defects.

Document medical bills/records, lost income and future earnings loss proof, property damage receipts, medication costs, rehabilitation and healthcare receipts, and records of pain/suffering impacts.

This refers to legal deadlines to file lawsuits after an accident. In Texas you generally have 2 years. Missing deadlines can destroy your claim completely.

While each case must be assessed individually, a broad rule of thumb is to value the claim as 3 times the total of all tangible losses like medical bills and lost wages. So for example – $10,000 in hard costs would equal a potential $30,000 settlement after accounting for pain and suffering. This is merely a general guideline that varies case by case.

In Texas, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is generally 2 years from the date of the incident. This means you forfeit the right to sue if you wait longer than 2 years. There are exceptions – for example, claims against governmental entities have shorter deadlines while medical malpractice claims allow up to 10 years. An attorney can advise you on the specific time limit that applies to your injury claim.

First, seek medical care immediately. Next, document everything – take photos/video, obtain medical records, keep detailed notes. Finally, do NOT accept an early settlement before speaking to an attorney.
