Personal Injury Laws in Texas
The basis of most personal injury claims is negligence. Negligence refers to one’s failure to fulfill the accepted standards of care, either through an action or inaction. Most courts use the “but for” test to determine negligence: the accident or injury would not have happened but for the negligence of the defendant. If this statement is true, the injured party will most likely qualify for financial compensation.
As the injured party (the plaintiff), you or your lawyer must show that the defendant owed you a duty of care, negligently breached this duty, and caused your personal injury accident. Your lawyer must also demonstrate your damages, such as medical bills, lost wages, or pain and suffering. It is up to you and your attorney to prove someone else’s negligence if you wish to obtain compensation for your losses.
In Texas, you only have two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim. Missing your deadline will most likely mean losing your right to file. Shared fault rules in Texas mean your case may involve more than one defendant. If the courts find you partially at fault for your own injuries, you will still be eligible for compensation as long as your liability does not exceed 50%. A lawyer can help you navigate the state’s complicated personal injury laws in the pursuit of fair financial recovery.
