Houston Personal Injury Lawyers

Our savvy Houston personal injury lawyers can help you seek compensation for physical injuries, mental distress, or property damage caused by a company’s irresponsible conduct.

With an estimated population of more than two million, Houston is the largest city in Texas and the fourth most populated city in the US. The presence of millions of people means numerous opportunities for someone to get hurt. Wherever there are people, there’s a chance of someone acting negligently, and negligent behavior often leads to personal injury.

If you are harmed in an accident, the consequences of your injuries could escalate and affect many aspects of your life. Filing a personal injury claim may be your best option for recovering your losses following an accident. Having an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side can be an enormous asset in any personal injury case. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney can represent you in court, build a solid claim, and negotiate a fair settlement.

How Do I Know if I Have a Valid Houston Personal Injury Case

No one expects to be involved in an accident, and when an unexpected injury occurs, it can be difficult deciding what to do next. It may be challenging to determine which incidents warrant taking legal action. However, you shouldn’t underestimate the nature and impact of any injury.

Personal injury claims are typically filed when accidents occur due to another’s negligence.  Whether conduct constitutes negligence is generally determined by evaluating the standard of care that should have been exercised or by what a reasonable person would do in the same situation. When one of the following occurs, you may have a personal injury claim:

  • The accident you were injured in resulted from someone else’s negligence
  • You suffered an injury as a guest on someone else’s property
  • You were injured as a direct result of someone else breaking a law that was meant to protect you
  • Someone purposely injured you
  • You were injured while working your job

A successful case requires that you demonstrate that another party was liable for your injuries. As the plaintiff, you bear the burden of proving that the party you’re seeking compensation from was careless, reckless, strictly liable, purposefully damaged you, or that they were otherwise required by law to pay for your injury-related expenses. Speaking with an accomplished Houston injury lawyer about your situation may be the best way to determine how to address your claim.

Types of Personal Injury Cases Commonly Reported in Houston

Accidents that cause personal injuries are typically the result of someone being careless. In general, anyone who contributed to the cause of a personal injury accident, including negligent drivers, employers, manufacturers, and medical professionals, may be held accountable for the incident’s consequences.

Common types of personal injury cases include:

Meeting with a personal injury attorney with experience handling cases of each kind may be helpful for Houston residents involved in any type of personal injury matter. Thanks to years of practicing and help from highly qualified legal staff, experienced personal injury attorneys can help you determine if you have a right to damages and compensation.

Can I Still Recover Damages in Houston if I'm Partially Responsible for My Injuries?

By making a personal injury claim, you can have the at-fault party pay for losses like medical bills, repair costs, and missed wages. You may still be eligible for this compensation even if you contributed to the accident.

Texas is a state with modified comparative fault, so you may still be able to pursue reduced damages in claims where you are partially at fault. Under the modified comparative fault rule, your damage award may be reduced by a percentage equal to your proportionate share of fault.

What Damages Can I Be Awarded Following My Personal Injury Accident in Houston?

Your eligibility for compensation following a personal injury accident will be based on factors like the severity of your injuries and their impact on your life. Also, the specifics of your claim will aid in determining the kind of losses you may recover.

In general, your claim may qualify you for compensation for the following:

  • Repair costs
  • Vehicle damage
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost current and future wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering

Every personal injury accident has consequences that could cause losses or harm in every aspect of your life. When you submit a personal injury claim, your compensatory damages should equal all losses you have suffered due to the accident.

Accident victims frequently overlook all the ways that the incident has impacted them while trying to assess the merits of their case. An experienced personal injury accident lawyer may be able to evaluate your claim and select a settlement price that accurately represents your damages.
