Galveston TX Personal Injury Lawyer

Skilled Injury Attorney Protecting the Rights of Injury Victims in Galveston

An accident can leave you seriously injured. Even when an accident only results in minor injuries, you might still need medical care and a few days off work to recover. This is money out of your pocket that you should not have to spend if you did not cause the accident.

Instead of facing a financial burden because of your injury, you can seek compensation for the expenses you face, known as damages, through a personal injury claim. In your claim, you must demonstrate that your accident was the direct result of another party’s failure to take the care he or she should have taken to protect others in the situation that led to your accident. For example, if you were involved in a collision with a drunk driver, the other driver’s choice to drive drunk was the act of negligence that caused your accident.

Supporting and Pursuing your Personal Injury Claim

In Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years from the date of the accident that caused your injury. This is the cutoff point beyond which the court will not hear a personal injury case, so keep it in mind while you pursue your claim with the negligent party’s insurance provider.

Through a personal injury claim, you can recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering damages. This last category includes all intangible damages you suffered because of your injury, such as its toll on your mental health. To successfully recover compensation for your damages, you need to provide evidence that supports your claim. This evidence can include:

  • Copies of your medical bills;
  • Documentation showing your lost wages;
  • Photographs of the accident;
  • A copy of the official accident report, if one exists; and
  • Eyewitness testimonies of the accident.

You can recover compensation for your damages if you were partially at fault for your accident, as long as you do not bear more than 50 percent of the fault. If you do bear some, but less than half of the fault for your accident, your compensation settlement is reduced according to the percentage of the fault your hold.
