What is Personal Injury?

Personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind, or emotions, as opposed to damage to, or loss of, property. In order to have a viable personal injury claim, you will need to show that another party’s negligent, careless, or intentional behavior caused or contributed to the cause of your injury.

What Kind of Compensation Can I Get In a Personal Injury Claim?

Common causes of injuries that result in personal injury claims are as follows:

The above are just some general types of personal injury causes. In reality, when  you can show that another party’s actions were fully or partially responsible for your injuries, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim.

What Kind of Compensation Can I Get In a Personal Injury Claim?

The amount of compensation you can be awarded in a personal injury claim depends of the severity of your injuries and the degree of fault of the other party. To illustrate how a personal injury claim works, let’s take a hypothetical situation:

You are driving your car when suddenly another car hits you because they were distracted. This causes you  severe injuries, including broken facial bones, road rash, and more. A successful personal injury lawsuit could get you compensation for:

  • Your medical bills resulting from the accident.
  • Future medical bills caused by your accident. In this case, you are going to need future skin grafts and other procedures due to multiple broken bones.
  • Pain and suffering the injuries caused.
  • Mental anguish and emotional duress: In many cases, physical trauma can cause non physical injuries, such as PTSD or panic attacks that will require therapy.
  • Costs of physical therapy and rehabilitation.
  • Permanent injury or handicap: The accident left you with a permanent limp that makes walking difficult and painful.
  • Future losses
  • Scarring and disfigurement: The accident caused permanent scars in the facial area.
  • Lost wages: Since you work as a contractor, you were unable to work until you were able to walk again.
  • Loss of career or earning capacity: Suppose the damage to your leg was so severe that you can no longer climb ladders and stand for long periods of time, making it impossible to continue working at your former occupation.
  • Reduced earning capacity: Suppose your injuries allow you to keep working in your former profession, but in a limited capacity, such as only four hours per day.
  • Occupational therapy and retraining: You could be compensated for cost of training for an occupation you could work at while sitting down.
  • loss of enjoyment of life
  • Wrongful death: Your family could sue for your future wages and benefits, funeral and burial expenses, your pain and suffering before you died, and more.

How Long do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Texas?

Of course this can vary depending on a wide variety of factors, but it is highly recommended you speak with a personal injury attorney before attempting to decide this on your own.
