Why do You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer to Get Compensation?
Legally, you can pursue justice and compensation all on your own. However, you might find it challenging to pursue your claim without:
The knowledge of how personal injury cases work
An understanding of the applicable state laws and legal procedures
The resources to gather evidence and supporting expert opinions
Add all this on top of having to focus on physically and financially recovering you’re your accident, and you might face an uphill battle.
Also, remember that insurance companies thrive on taking advantage of people’s desperation following a life-altering accident. Often, they need money but are uninformed about insurance company tactics. As a result, an adjuster will look for ways to minimize your claim, such as using statements you make to assign fault for the accident to you.

What Personal Injury Compensation Can We Get for You?
There are two general types of compensation granted in personal injury claims: compensatory and punitive damages.
Compensatory damages are awarded to compensate you for your injuries.
Punitive damages are assessed to punish the negligent party and are rarely awarded in personal injury cases.
The types of compensation you may be entitled to get include:
Coverage for medical bills and related expenses.
Lost work time or other lost income.
Pain and suffering.
Permanent physical disability or disfigurement.
Loss of family, social and educational experiences.
Emotional damages resulting from any of the above.
You Have Limited Time If You Want to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Texas
Texas only gives personal injury victims two years from the date of the accident or incident to file a case in court, per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003. Even the most straightforward claims can quickly become complicated, dragging out the claims process and diminishing the amount of time left to file a lawsuit. You’ll need that option available to you should negotiations with the liable party or their insurance company fail.
If that is the case, your attorney and legal team will need time to draft the proper motions, assemble a team of experts, or otherwise prepare your case for trial. The statute of limitations for wrongful death lawsuits is also two years, so if you plan to seek justice for yourself or a lost loved one, do not delay.
Our trial lawyers will not hesitate in the face of litigation.
