What does a personal injury attorney do?

The Texas civil justice system provides a way for accident victims to collect compensation for damages that are a result of someone else’s negligence. If another party caused or contributed to your car accident, slip and fall, work accident, or serious injury you might have grounds to file a personal injury claim. A personal injury attorney will work closely with you to identify your goals for the case, tailor an appropriate legal strategy, and fight for the compensation you deserve. A lawyer can handle the following tasks on your behalf:

  • Investigating the accident.
  • Identifying liable parties.
  • Taking over communications with insurers.
  • Covering medical expenses and income gaps.
  • Negotiating higher insurance settlement amounts.
  • Filing a personal injury claim in Fort Worth.
  • Creating a strong case in your favor.
  • Interviewing accident eyewitnesses.
  • Hiring experts to testify.

A personal injury lawyer will take care of virtually all the red tape in your accident claim, so you can focus on recovering from your injuries. The Law Offices of Tom Hall has the resources, experience, and knowledgeable attorneys to handle your case and pursue the best possible results. We understand the legal process for all types of claims, accidents, and injuries. Whether you suffered a catastrophic brain injury, or a dog attacked your child, we can provide the legal assistance you need in Fort Worth.

texas personal injury statutes and laws

Personal injury cases are typically handled in state courts and each state has their own laws, statutes, and legal process. These laws establish time limits on claims, caps on monetary damages or certain types of claims, and even define elements differently (such as negligence and liability) from state to state. Some of the most important personal injury laws and statutes in Texas include:

  1. The statute of limitations. Whatever you do, don’t miss the statute of limitations for filing your personal injury claim. Texas legislation imposes a two-year time limit on PI claims. You have two years from the date of your accident or the date you discover your injury to bring your claim. Missing this deadline generally means losing your right to compensation.
  2. Shared fault laws. Texas is a modified comparative negligence state. This means you can still receive compensation even if you were partially at fault for the accident. If the Texas courts find you 50% or less at fault for the accident, you could receive at least partial compensation. The courts will reduce your award by your percentage of responsibility for causing the accident or injuries.
  3. Caps on damages. Texas puts caps, or maximum damage amounts, on some types of personal injury compensation. Claimants can receive a maximum of $250,000 per defendant and $500,000 overall in non-economic losses in medical malpractice claims. These include pain and suffering damages. A cap of around $1.9 million (indexed for inflation) exists for wrongful death medical malpractice claims.
  4. Dog bite laws. Texas differs from most states in that it does not enforce a specific statute regarding dog-related injuries and liabilities. Instead, the Texas courts will evaluate each claim on an individual basis. In general, a dog owner will be liable for the actions of a dog if he or she knew or should have known the attack might have happened. In other words, Texas, courts follow a one-bite rule.
  5. Claims against the government. The Texas state government permits injured parties to file claims outside of the sovereign immunity system. However, filing claims against the government (such as the city of Fort Worth) comes with special guidelines. Most importantly, you have six months from the date of your accident to file. You must file a formal complaint with the defendant describing your accident and damages.
