Some injuries, known as catastrophic injuries, are so severe that the victim will never recover and will never work again. Such injuries often involve brain or spinal cord trauma. Even people who recover from a serious injury may require months of hospitalization, rehabilitation and medical treatment, and the inability to work for a long period.

The bills keep coming, and the injured person could lose his or her home to foreclosure or face eviction if the rent is not paid. Your attorney works to see that the person or entity responsible for this situation makes amends.

Personal Injury Compensation and Damages

Under Texas law, personal injury victims may receive compensation – or damages – for medical and other expenses. Economic damages include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages and prospective future wages
  • Property damage, such as reimbursement for a wrecked motor vehicle

There are also non-economic damages, which include pain and suffering, mental anguish, and “loss of consortium.” The latter term refers to injuries or death of a spouse in the accident. In cases of drunken driving or extreme negligence, punitive damages may be awarded. These damages are literally meant to “punish” the person or entity found liable. They serve as a warning that bad behavior has consequences.

I hired the Dashner Law Firm to represent me in an auto accident that I was in that resulted in a lot of medical bills. The insured that hit me didn’t have the coverage to cover all of the bills. The Dashner Law Firm worked with the hospital, doctors and chiropractic firms to reduce the amount I owed and was able to settle with the insured’s insurance company to get them all paid. The process was easy and they were extremely professional. I would highly recommend the Dashner Law Firm.
