Types of Odessa Personal Injury Accidents

Personal injury claims may encompass various types of accidents and injuries caused by someone else’s negligence. The victim typically has the burden of proof to demonstrate a lack of duty of care to establish liability.

Examples of personal injury accident claims we pursue include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents: With over 35,000 fatal motor vehicle crashes occurring in the United States in 2020, golf cart accidents, car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents are one of the most common types of accidents that may result in significant personal injury.
  • Oilfield accidents: Oilfield accidents cause catastrophic injuries for victims due to various reasons such as inexperience, machinery defects, and failure to upkeep safety standards.
  • Burn injuries: Burn injuries may be caused by a variety of accidents such as oilfield explosions, manufacturing defects, property owner negligence, and others that may result in life-long health complications.
  • Slip-and-fall injuries: These types of accidents may occur due to dangerous or hazardous conditions on commercial, private, or public property when a property owner fails to uphold a reasonable duty of care.

Since 1985, we have aggressively advocated for victims affected by negligence in a multitude of accident claims and are ready to help you navigate the complexities of your case. We will tirelessly fight for the justice you deserve.

Damages You May Be Awarded in a Successful Personal Injury Claim

In a successful personal injury claim, you may be eligible to recover the following damages:

Economic Damages: Economic damages represent the financial losses you’ve experienced due to your accident caused by someone else’s negligence. You may be awarded compensation for the following monetary losses:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Rehabilitation and assisted care expenses

After suffering injuries in an accident caused by someone else’s actions, you may experience financial instability due to costly medical expenses, lost wages, and other economic losses. At Hilliard Law we believe that you shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s actions. We fight for the maximum, fair compensation you deserve so you may experience a complete recovery and obtain lawful justice.

Non-Economic Damages: Non-economic damages are intangible losses you experienced as a result of your accident that was caused due to someone else’s negligence. The following are non-economic damages you may be awarded:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Non-economic damages are more complex to prove due to the lack of tangible evidence you may be able to provide. Telling your story and depicting the lifestyle changes you have had to endure due to your personal injury may illustrate the emotional damages you have had to face.

Punitive Damages: Punitive damages are sometimes awarded to the victim of a personal injury accident when there was malicious intent to harm, or the negligence was so significant that the liable party needs to be punished in order to deter the same occurrence from happening in the future.

In Texas, there are no caps on the monetary value of the damages you are able to receive in a successful personal injury claim. The one exception is medical malpractice claims; non-economic damages are limited to $250,000 per defendant and $500,000 overall.
