Laredo attorney assisting those who have been injured in car wrecks, trucking accidents, or through some other incident
Texas law protects those who have been injured due to the actions of another. A victim may be entitled to compensation if it is shown that another person or entity acted in an unreasonable manner and caused an accident which resulted in injuries. Such compensation can include past and future lost wages, past and future medical expenses, payment for pain and suffering, and punitive damages under some circumstances. Under our state’s comparative fault laws one may be compensated for their injuries as long as they were not more than fifty-one percent responsible for an accident. Most accident claims must be brought within two years of the incident. Missing this time frame can result in a victim losing their right to be compensated.
The first step in a personal injury case is for the Plaintiff’s lawyer to contact the insurance carriers. The carriers will then deal with counsel directly while the victim undergoes necessary medical treatment. Counsel will send a demand for payment to the carriers once the victim’s damages can be reasonably calculated. If a fair settlement is not obtained then it will be necessary for the Plaintiff to litigate the matter in Court. The first step of such litigation is to file a Petition. Counsel will use a process known as “discovery” to accumulate evidence of the Defendant’s negligence. Should the matter proceed to trial then a jury will decide whether the Defendants should be found liable, the extent to which the Plaintiff was at fault for the accident (if at all), and the amount of compensation the Plaintiff should receive. The litigation process is complex and the rules of civil procedure will be enforced. It is important that you retain a firm experienced in handling such matters.
