The severity of your injuries should not dictate whether you deserve to recover compensation. If someone’s negligence caused you harm, you may deserve to have them pay for your recovery. Your injuries could be from the severe to the minute, from the overt to the subtle.
You may be suffering from:
In the most extreme cases, you may have lost a loved one. A Prosper personal injury lawyer from our firm can help you with a wrongful death claim as well. Call Underwood Law Office at (972) 535-6377 for a free case consultation.
Many people are unaware of the full value of their losses from their accident. They may believe their losses extend to property damages, lost wages, and medical bills.
However, you could be eligible to receive more.
Not only could you claim lost wages from your time away from work, but you may be able to collect for a loss in your potential earnings if you can no longer perform your job as you once did. This loss could include any promotions and benefits you may no longer receive.
The same logic may be applied to medical bills. Your losses do not have to end with your current medical bills. You could need continuous health care, ongoing therapy, and home modifications. This could be factored into your compensation.
Furthermore, losses are typically given in two categories: economic and non-economic. Economic losses are easy to understand. They have a definite dollar value attached to them through bills and invoices.
Non-economic losses are more nebulous. They are the losses that have value to you but must be given a dollar amount. There are various tools to calculate the value of non-economic losses, which your lawyer can explain to you. These losses may include a diminished quality of life, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.
As we stated above, we can also assist you with a wrongful death claim, which may include such losses as burial and funeral costs, a loss of support and protection, and more.
When you are unable to reach a fair settlement offer with the liable party’s insurer, you may be able to take your case to trial, but there is a deadline to do so. Personal injury lawsuits have a statute of limitations in Texas.
Under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003, you generally have two years to file your personal injury lawsuit. If that deadline passes, you may be unable to pursue your losses through the court. Your lawyer can ensure you meet this and any other deadlines.
If someone behaving recklessly caused your injuries, you have a right to pursue compensation for your losses. A Prosper personal injury lawyer with Underwood Law Office may be able to assist you with building a claim.
We can investigate your accident, gather police and medical reports, speak with eyewitnesses, consult with experts, negotiate on your behalf, and, if necessary, represent you at trial. We can also handle all communications, deadlines, and legal paperwork in your case. Our firm will answer your questions and keep you informed about the progress of your case so you can focus on your recovery.
