Proving Liability in a Texas Personal Injury Case

Recovering damages in a Texas personal injury lawsuit can be tricky. It's imperative to work with an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you navigate the intricacies of your case and establish liability.

To successfully recover damages in a personal injury lawsuit, the victim ("plaintiff") must prove the existence of four key elements. These include: 

  1. Duty of Care: The victim must show that the offending party (“defendant”) owed them a standard of care. For example, in a golf cart accident, it may be argued that the country club or course owner owes the public a duty of care to keep the property safe and free of hazards. 
  2. Breach of Duty: Next, the plaintiff must demonstrate that the defendant breached their duty of care by acting carelessly or negligently. For example, if the country club fails to maintain safe premises and thus causes a golf cart accident, this can be considered a breach of duty. 
  3. Damages: The injured party must establish that compensatory damages exist to have a valid personal injury case. In other words, if no damages exist to compensate the victim, there is no purpose for the lawsuit. 
  4. Causation: Finally, plaintiffs must establish causation in their case. This entails proving that the defendant's negligent actions directly caused the injury and ensuing damages. 

Recoverable Damages in Texas Personal Injury Cases

There are various types of damages (compensation) available in personal injury lawsuits. In Texas, there are various types of damages that can be recovered, including:

  • Economic Damages: In a personal injury case, economic damages are intended to compensate injured parties for financial losses (e.g., quantifiable monetary amounts). Common examples include hospital bills, medical expenses, treatment costs, long-term rehabilitative care, prescription medications, and lost earnings during the recovery period.
  • Non-Economic Damages: Unlike economic damages, non-economic damages are meant to compensate victims for non-financial losses, such as loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and scarring and disfigurement.
  • Punitive Damages: Although rarely awarded compared to economic and non-economic damages, punitive damages can provide additional compensation to victims in cases where the defendant's actions were particularly egregious. Unlike economic and non-economic damages, punitive damages are meant to punish the defendant as opposed to compensating the victim.
