How Texas Law Addresses Issues of Negligent Acts that Cause Injuries to Others
According to Texas law, everyone has a responsibility for injuries or damages caused by intentional wrongful acts. In addition, everyone is responsible for damages caused by a lack of ordinary care, known as negligence.
To prove negligence, accident victims must show the following:
- The defendant had a duty to the victim.
- The defendant failed to meet a reasonable standard and breached their duty.
- The breach of duty caused harm to the victim, causing damage to property or physical injury.
When you bring your concerns to Joe I. Zaid & Associates, we carefully assess the details behind your injuries and identify all legal options for pursuing compensation for your losses. With some exceptions, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a claim under the Texas Statute of Limitations, so we recommend you contact us as soon as possible to start developing an effective case.
The Value of a Personal Injury Claim
Depending upon the severity of injuries, victims can pursue all expenses related to their injuries, such as the following:
- Past, current, and future anticipated costs of medical treatment and therapy
- The expenses related to caring for home and family as long as victims cannot meet their normal daily responsibilities
- Lost time from work during the recovery period or for a lifetime when catastrophic injuries reduce or eliminate the ability to earn a living
- Reimbursement for the long-term effects of permanent disability
- The costs of psychological treatment
- Pain and suffering
Although rare, it is also possible to pursue punitive damages against an individual whose heinous acts cause injuries. We develop a detailed assessment of all losses to ensure our clients pursue the full value of their claims.
