Have you been hurt in Fort Worth or the surrounding communities? Call (817) 591-4222 to pursue justice.

Physical Pain

This is what most people think of when they hear the term pain and suffering. After suffering an injury, you have the right to pursue compensation for the physical pain you have endured due to the accident. This not only includes the pain you have suffered prior to filing the claim, but also any future pain that doctors anticipate you will experience. The amount that will be awarded can vary widely, so it is extremely important to retain a Fort Worth injury lawyer who can build a strong case on your behalf.

Mental Anguish

Unfortunately, the injuries caused by serious accidents are not restricted to physical conditions. The mental anguish and emotional distress caused by an accident can impact your life as much if not more than physical pain, and you therefore have a right to pursue compensation for this pain as well. Due to the lack of physical scars, the value of these damages can vary widely from case to case.
