It happened in an instant – but the accident was not your fault. However, it is your body that is now broken and your life that is in tatters. While you recover from the injury, insurance companies and claims adjusters are trying to make sure they pay out the absolute minimum – no matter how devastating your injuries and/or emotional condition. They are doing their jobs to protect their companies, but an Arlington personal injury lawyer will work hard to ensure their client receives fair compensation.
Never accept a settlement from an insurance company without consulting an attorney. An experienced personal injury lawyer in Arlington, Texas fights hard to protect your rights, so that you may receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries. While most personal injury cases are settled, we do not hesitate to go to trial if necessary.
Types of Personal Injuries We Handle
Personal injuries run the gamut, but the bottom line of any personal injury case is that the injury occurred wholly or partially because of another person or entity’s negligence or recklessness. In motor vehicle accidents, Texas uses the 51 percent standard, so that any driver found more than 51 percent responsible for a crash is ineligible for damages.
Severe personal injuries change the lives of their victims and their families. When a primary breadwinner or caregiver is seriously injured, the entire family suffers. Life-altering – and life-threatening – personal injuries may result in:
- Paralysis – paraplegia or quadriplegia
- Traumatic brain injury
- Neurological issues
- Permanent vision or hearing loss
- Loss of cognitive function
- Mobility impairment
Depending on the situation, the injured person may no longer work or perform the type of job held prior to the accident. Loss of income can mean losing their home, motor vehicles and dignity in their lives.
Personal Injury Compensation in Texas
In Texas, personal injury victims may receive compensation, or damages, for economic and non-economic losses. This includes:
- Medical expenses
- Property loss – such as a totaled car
- Loss of wages
- Loss of earnings – if the person can never hold a job or work in their former capacity again
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
Insurance companies are not interested in giving you fair compensation, but a skilled personal injury attorney works hard to ensure such compensation is fair, given the unique circumstances of each case. Nothing can bring back the quality of life you enjoyed before the accident, but fair compensation should enable you to receive the care you need.
