Texas Personal Injury Laws

Personal injury refers to any physical or mental harm caused to an individual as a result of another party's negligence, intentional actions, or strict liability. When someone suffers an injury due to these circumstances, they may seek compensation for damages through a civil lawsuit.

In Texas, to succeed in a personal injury lawsuit, you need to establish four key elements:

  1. Duty of Care: The first element involves demonstrating that the defendant owed you a duty of care. This duty varies depending on the situation; for example, a driver owes a duty to other drivers to operate their vehicle safely and follow traffic laws. Establishing this duty is crucial in showing that the defendant had a responsibility to act reasonably or take necessary precautions to avoid causing harm.
  2. Breach of Duty: You must show that the defendant breached their duty of care. This means proving that the defendant failed to act reasonably or neglected their duty. For instance, if a driver was texting while driving and caused an accident, they breached their duty to drive safely.
  3. Causation: It's essential to establish a direct link between the defendant's breach of duty and the injuries you sustained. You need to demonstrate that the defendant's actions or negligence directly caused the harm you experienced. This can involve proving that, had it not been for the defendant's actions, your injuries would not have occurred.
  4. Damages: Finally, you must show that you suffered actual damages as a result of the defendant's breach of duty. These damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and any other losses incurred due to the injury.

Keep in mind that Texas follows a "modified comparative fault" rule when determining compensation. If the injured party is found partially responsible for the accident, their compensation may be reduced by their percentage of fault. However, if the injured party is deemed 51% or more at fault, they may not recover any compensation.

Depend On Us for Your Personal Injury Case

We have intentionally directed our firm’s focus toward complex and catastrophic injury cases of various types. If you were hurt due to someone else’s negligence, then we can help you understand the legal action you can take in response, no matter how complicated the situation might seem now.

At Robins Cloud LLP, we accept plaintiff cases that involve the following and more:

  • Aviation accidents: These involve injuries sustained due to airplane or helicopter crashes, often resulting from pilot error, mechanical failure, or negligence.
  • Bicycle accidents: Injuries occurring from collisions involving bicycles, often due to negligence by drivers, poor road conditions, or defective bicycle parts.
  • Car accidents: Injuries resulting from collisions involving automobiles, often caused by distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, or other forms of negligence.
  • Construction accidents: Injuries suffered at construction sites due to unsafe working conditions, defective equipment, or negligence by employers or other workers.

Compensation Owed to You

The personal injury cases we accept often involve hundreds of thousands of dollars or millions of dollars in damages owed to our clients. Your claim or lawsuit could have a similar value once all of your damages and losses are addressed and calculated together. It depends on the severity of your injuries, the insurance policies we can file against, the distribution of liability, and a few other factors.

The value of your personal injury claim will be impacted by:

  • Past and future medical treatment costs
  • Past lost wages and future reduced income earning capacity
  • Costs associated with permanent disability needs
  • Physical pain and emotional suffering

Leaving just one dollar unclaimed is unacceptable to our Houston personal injury attorneys. We will take the time to fully understand your losses and injuries, so we can be confident that the value of your claim accurately reflects what is owed to you and what you have been through. Whether we can negotiate for a fair settlement offer that gets you back on your feet or must take the opposition to litigation to secure the compensation you need, we will be ready.

How Our Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help

It is highly recommended that you work with a personal injury lawyer before starting your claim. You might have even been told to call an attorney by a medical provider after you reported how your injury happened. People and company representatives know that hiring a lawyer is the right choice for the majority of injured claimants because the personal injury process in Texas can be downright confusing if you do not have legal training.

Leave your personal injury case up to us, and we can help by:

  • Determining liability by investigating your accident and injuries.
  • Calculating the damage owed to you in full.
  • Sending a demand letter to the defendant.
  • Filing an injury claim if the demand letter is not respected.
  • Representing you in court a fair settlement offer is not given.

In other words, you can lean on us from the start of your case to its conclusion, whatever that might be. To make matters even easier on you, we work for contingency fees when accepting personal injury claims. A contingency fee agreement means that you will not have to pay our attorney fees unless we end your case in your favor. Furthermore, the defendant might be ordered to pay our attorney fees if we win, so you can get an even larger amount of compensation.
