Personal Injury Lawyer in Texas Winning Maximum Compensation For Victims of Negligence

If you have suffered a personal injury caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to collect compensation for your damages. Some common examples include hospital bills, lost income, and emotional distress.

Accident victims are often unable to work and support themselves and their families. Furthermore, even if the injured victim has health insurance coverage, they may be left with a stack of medical bills they cannot afford to pay.

For this reason, Brasure Law Firm, PLLC of Texas, is dedicated to assisting clients who have been injured by protecting their legal rights and helping them obtain the justice they deserve. Additionally, you only pay money if we win the case. Contact our law offices and ask to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss your case and explore your legal options.

What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Texas Personal Injury Attorney to Help With the Insurance Company?

If you have suffered a personal injury, it is in your best interest to obtain skilled legal representation immediately. A personal injury attorney can thoroughly evaluate your claim and help you file a claim with the insurance company.

One of the most significant benefits of hiring an attorney is they can act as your legal liaison with the insurer. An adjuster will contact you soon after the accident to offer a quick settlement. It is not advisable to accept a settlement.

Therefore, you should only make an agreement with the insurance carrier once you speak with a personal injury lawyer who can inform you of your rights. The Brasure Law Firm, PLLC, will review all aspects of your injury case and determine an adequate settlement amount for your needs.

Can Your Law Firm Provide Favorable Results For My Personal Injury Claim?

One of the most critical issues our clients are concerned about is their ability to obtain compensation that will pay for their medical expenses, such as physical therapy and rehabilitation costs. Even minor injuries can result in the accident victim needing medical treatment, resulting in bills that may be challenging to pay.

Texas personal injury law allows personal injury victims to try and recover economic and non-economic damages, also called compensatory damages, after being involved in an accident. Our law firm has a proven track record of being able to recover compensatory damages for clients.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are granted to repay victims for the out-of-pocket expenses they have incurred and may include:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Property damage

Non Economic Damages

Non-economic damages are awarded based on intangible losses the victim has suffered and often include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of companionship
  • Permanent disfigurement and scarring

What Makes Your Personal Injury Lawyer the Right Choice For My Legal Needs?

Many personal injury lawyers claim they can help clients pursue compensation for their injuries. However, few of them can replicate the service and results that the Brasure Law Firm, PLLC, has been able to provide to accident victims.

Such injuries typically require specialized nursing care for the rest of the individual’s life.

Our law firm is passionately committed to helping each of our clients through this overwhelming time in their lives. We believe guilty parties need to be held accountable and accident victims obtain the maximum compensation they deserve. Remember, you do not pay us any money unless we win your case.

FAQ’s
How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit in Texas?

The Texas statute of limitations allows personal injury victims up to two years from the date of their injury to file a claim. If the family of a wrongful death victim wishes to file a claim, they also have two years to file. However, the statute of limitations begins on the date of death rather than the day the decedent suffered a fatal accident. For example, an individual could be involved in an accident but not pass away until a week later from their injuries. If you fail to file a lawsuit during the allotted time, the court will throw your case out, and you will lose any ability to recover compensation.

How long does it usually take to settle a Texas personal injury claim?

Unfortunately, there is no simple answer regarding how long it may take to settle a Texas personal injury claim. In many cases where there is a clear understanding of what occurred and who should be held at fault, the claim may be settled quickly. However, in situations where there are multiple liability issues or the insurance company tries to dispute the claim, cases may take two to three years to be fully resolved. That being the case, it is in your best interests to discuss your case with a knowledgeable attorney who can provide you with more information.

When should I consider hiring a personal injury lawyer?

Many personal injury victims are initially hesitant to hire a personal injury lawyer after being involved in an accident. In most instances, individuals are apprehensive about the cost of hiring a well-qualified personal injury attorney. However, most attorneys handling personal injury cases work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they only get paid if they win. Therefore, if you were injured in an accident that was someone else’s fault, you must hire an attorney immediately to protect your legal rights. A lawyer can help guide you through the complex claims process and act as your legal ally with the insurance provider.

How do you prove negligence in Texas?

For a plaintiff to successfully prove their case, specific legal criteria must be met. First, the defendant must have owed the plaintiff a legal duty of care, such as safely operating a motor vehicle. Next, that duty must have been breached through the defendant’s actions. As a result, the plaintiff’s injuries were determined to be the direct result of the breach. Finally, the plaintiff suffered damages as a result of their injuries. An experienced personal injury attorney can evaluate your case and determine if all legal criteria are present and if you can proceed forward with your case.

Who is eligible to collect punitive damages in Texas?

Texas personal injury victims may collect punitive damages if they can demonstrate through clear and convincing evidence that the harm they suffered resulted from either fraud, malice, or gross negligence. In addition, Texas law dictates that punitive damages can only be granted to the plaintiff if the jury reaches a unanimous decision regarding liability and compensation issues. Furthermore, punitive damages are unlike compensatory damages meant to reimburse the victim. Instead, they are awarded to punish the wrongdoer and warn others not to repeat the same behavior.

What are catastrophic injuries?

Catastrophic injuries differ from other personal injuries based on their level of seriousness. Catastrophic or permanent injuries typically are incredibly challenging to recover from, and in some cases, the injury victim never fully recovers. Although Texas does not have a set legal definition of what a catastrophic injury entails, they are generally considered any injury resulting in debilitating symptoms accompanied by a lengthy recovery period. In most catastrophic injury cases, the victim experiences a permanent disability or significant loss in their quality of life.
Some common examples include the loss of a limb, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), spinal cord injuries, and organ damage.

Does Texas cap punitive damages?

Texas personal injury law caps the punitive damages a plaintiff may receive. In cases where the plaintiff is not awarded economic damages, punitive damages are capped at $200,000. However, if the plaintiff is awarded economic damages, they may only receive double that amount plus an equal amount of non-economic damages totaling up to $750,000. To better understand how punitive damages are awarded, it is always best to consult with your personal injury attorney. A skilled attorney can evaluate your claim and determine if you are eligible to obtain punitive damages and what amount would be appropriate.

How do I know if I have a personal injury claim?

If another person’s carelessness or negligence has harmed you, you may be entitled to file a personal injury claim. However, because Texas personal injury law can be overly complex and challenging to try and navigate independently, it is always best to consult an experienced lawyer who can evaluate your case. An attorney can also protect your legal rights, determine who should be held liable for the harm you have suffered, and estimate a settlement amount that will provide for your present and future needs.
