How Our Attorneys Can Help You

After an accident, many injured Texans find themselves confused and faced with various questions surrounding their recovery and future. Who is responsible for your injuries? Who will pay your medical bills? Our attorneys can take this burden off your shoulders and give you the peace of mind you need to focus on what truly matters during this time – your recovery.

Our Fort Worth injury lawyers can:

  • Help you get the quality medical care you need
  • Handle all communications and negotiations with insurance companies on your behalf
  • Investigate your accident and identify all responsible parties
  • Analyze medical records, eyewitness testimonies, and relevant case law
  • Help you pursue compensation for all economic and non-economic damages
  • Expedite the timeline of your claim

How Long Do You Have to File a Claim?

If you have been injured through no fault of your own, you need to act fast to preserve your right to seek compensation. Under the statute of limitations established in the Texas Civil Practice & Remedies code section 16.003, you only have two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. If this deadline expires, you will likely lose your right to sue and will be permanently prevented from recovering damages.

The sooner you get in touch with our attorneys, the sooner we can get started building your case. Since memories fade and key evidence can be lost as time passes, it is crucial you contact our team of attorneys as soon as possible to maximize your chances of securing the compensation you deserve.

What Damages Can I Recover in a Personal Injury Case?

Generally speaking, there are two types of damages injury victims can pursue compensation for; compensatory damages and punitive damages. Compensatory damages can be broken up into two categories, economic and non-economic. As the name suggests economic damages compensate for financial losses associated with suffering an injury such as missed days at work and medical expenses. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, compensate for more abstract losses such as pain and suffering and mental anguish. The main purpose of compensatory damages is to compensate the injured party for as many losses as possible.

This is the main difference between compensatory and punitive damages. Compensatory damages compensate the injured party while punitive damages serve as a way to punish the negligent party. Since punitive damages can be quite severe they are often reserved for cases where the defendant knew their actions would cause harm but did them anyway.
