Skilled Attorney Representing Victims in League City and South Harris County
Accidents happen. When an accident happens because of an individual’s negligence and the accident results in another person’s injury, the injured victim may seek compensation for his or her related damages through a personal injury claim.
Personal injury claims are more complicated than simply asking for compensation from another party’s insurance provider. In order to recover compensation, the victim must use evidence to demonstrate how the insured party’s negligence directly caused him or her to be injured and how the injury caused him or her to suffer specific financial and non-economic damages. Reaching an appropriate settlement amount for a personal injury claim often requires negotiation between the claimant and the insurance provider, which is often handled by the claimant’s lawyer. When the claimant cannot reach a satisfactory settlement, he or she may file a personal injury lawsuit to have the court rule on the case. But these, too, are bound by certain requirements, such as the two-year statute of limitations.

Pursuing Compensation for Personal Injury Damages
Through a personal injury claim, a victim can seek compensation for the following:
- His or her medical expenses;
- His or her lost wages; and
- His or her pain and suffering damages.
The compensation can cover the victim’s immediate needs, like the wages he or she currently cannot earn due to the injury and his or her upfront medical bills, as well as the victim’s long term financial damages. This latter category can include the emotional trauma of the accident, chronic pain in the years that follow the accident, and a reduced earning capacity due to a disability caused by the injury.
The evidence a claimant can use to demonstrate the other party’s negligence includes:
- Photographs of the accident;
- The official accident report, if one exists;
- Copies of his or her medical bills;
- Documentation showing the victim’s current pay rate and time spent out of work;
- Witness testimonies of the accident; and
- Testimony from the victim’s doctor about his or her injury, treatment, and the long-term complications he or she could face.
