The phrase “personal injury” is a catch-all phrase used to describe any case that stems from someone being hurt due to fault (or liability). When a person has the misfortune to become injured because of someone else’s negligence, the law permits that victim to recover monetary compensation.
Among the measures of damages that the law recognizes are:
- Physical pain and suffering (both past and future)
- Mental and emotional pain and suffering, anguish, and trauma
- Lost wages
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- The cost of future medical treatment necessitated by the injuries sustained in the accident
- Any restrictions imposed on the victim’s day-to-day activities at work or home
- Loss of companionship for a spouse or parent

Standing Up for You Against a Host of Opponents
As if the pain and suffering aren’t bad enough, accident victims often face the daunting prospect of being out of work for extended periods, mounting unpaid medical bills, and the frustration and humiliation of being bullied by the insurance companies.
You probably have many questions about your accident and how much your injuries are worth.

Do You Have a Case?
In Texas, to recover compensation for any injury, including a catastrophic injury, the victim must prove two things.
First, someone else must be at fault for the cause of the accident. It is established by showing that the accident occurred due to negligent or careless behavior.
For instance, in a slip-and-fall case, the fall occurred due to a dangerous, hazardous condition that the owner or occupant (tenant) either caused or allowed to persist once apparent.
If, however, your injuries were sustained in a car, bus, or motorcycle accident, the fault is established by showing the negligent operation of the vehicle(s) involved.
For example, if someone violated the law by running a stop sign or red light or hitting another car from behind, the fault is clear-cut.
Even if you were partially at fault, you might still be able to recover monetary compensation for the injuries you sustained. Contact us now for a free case evaluation.
But that isn’t the end of the story: to succeed in the recovery of monetary compensation for personal injuries, the injured party or their experienced personal injury attorneys must also prove the specific injuries sustained.
The proof is done using medical records, doctor reports, and diagnostic test results such as X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans. It is also necessary to consult with the live expert testimony of the injured person’s doctor(s).
Additionally, many other factors contribute to the value of a personal injury case, such as:
- The length of time the victim received treatment,
- The frequency of care,
- Whether the injuries resulted in surgery,
- The victim’s age,
- How much time the injured party was out of work,
- How much the wounded party was earning at the time of the accident, and
- Any pre-existing conditions will all play a part in determining the total value of a personal injury case.
You need an experienced personal injury attorney to let you know now whether you have a case.
