Establishing Liability in Texas Personal Injury Lawsuits

In a Texas personal injury lawsuit, working with a trusted attorney is essential to calculate the value of your claim and recover the total compensation available to you. Your lawyer can help you establish critical elements to recover damages, including: 

  1. The defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care.
  2. The defendant breached that duty by acting negligently. 
  3. The negligence resulted in compensatory damages to the plaintiff.
  4. The defendant’s negligence was the proximate cause of the resulting injuries. 

Victims can recover damages from liable parties by establishing negligence. Types of recoverable damages include: 

  1. Economic damages to compensate for financial losses, such as lost earnings, medical expenses, and property damage.
  2. Non-economic damages to compensate for non-financial losses, such as emotional distress, scarring and disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment of life. 

In certain cases, plaintiffs may also be eligible to recover punitive damages, which are intended to punish the defendant rather than compensate the victim. Unlike other types of compensatory damages, punitive damages are only awarded in cases entailing extreme recklessness or negligence by the defendant.
