What Is A Personal Injury Lawsuit?

A personal injury lawsuit is a civil lawsuit filed by someone who has been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence. In addition to money, known as damages that victims may be entitled to obtain in a civil case, including medical expenses and missed wages, there may also be additional non-economic damages such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.

How To File A Personal Injury Lawsuit In Texas

 

If you or a loved one were injured in an accident in Texas, you may be considering filing a personal injury lawsuit. 

What is the procedure? 

Who can bring a lawsuit? 

What kinds of compensation are available to victims of injuries? 

How long do you have to act after being injured?

If you’re thinking of filing a personal injury lawsuit, it’s critical to fully understand your rights immediately and follow best practices on what to do after an accident to preserve facts and evidence important to your case. Otherwise, you might make a mistake that jeopardizes the outcome of your lawsuit and prevents you from receiving the compensation that you deserve. It’s also crucial to note that each state’s regulations can differ significantly. That’s why if you’re thinking about filing a personal injury lawsuit in Texas, you need to understand how the system works in Texas. 

Who Can File A Personal Injury Lawsuit In Texas?

 

In many situations, only the person who was hurt in an accident may bring a claim against the liable party. The plaintiff is the individual who files a lawsuit. The defendant is the person or company being sued by the plaintiff.

However, there are certain instances when this isn’t the case. One of the most common examples is fatal accidents in which someone died as a result of another person’s reckless or negligent behavior. In such circumstances, those listed below can frequently bring a wrongful death lawsuit in Texas:

  • Husband or wife of the deceased
  • The parent (mother or father) of a deceased
  • Adult children, in the event of their parent’s death.

In Texas, if family members do not file a wrongful death claim within three months of the death of a person, the executor of the deceased person’s estate has the right to file one unless a surviving family member specifically asks the estate not to.

What Compensation Can I Sue For In A Personal Injury Lawsuit?

 

In Texas, you have the right to seek financial compensation for any expenses incurred as a result of your accident. Such costs may extend across a wide range of possibilities, including immediate damages for your injuries as well as future anticipated expenditures resulting from your accident. These expenses might include:

  • The total cost of your accident, including any future medical treatments related to your injuries. Surgical procedures, physical therapy, and narcotic painkillers may be examples of such future expenses.
  • Damage to personal property as a result of the accident. This might include vehicle repair or replacement expenses, as well as damage to your house, business, or other property.
  • Modifications to your home if you have a permanent disability due to your accident.
  • Replacement income if you need to rest and recover after your accident and cannot work during this time.
  • Lost future income if you cannot return to work due to a severe injury.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life. 

The bottom line is that you should be compensated appropriately for someone else’s reckless or negligent behavior. You should be paid financially for all related expenses if another person caused your accident.

Is There A Deadline For Filing A Personal Injury Lawsuit?

 

In Texas, most people have just two years from the date of their accident to bring a personal injury lawsuit. The same applies if someone dies as a result of an accident in Texas. The deadline (also known as the statute of limitations) for filing a wrongful death claim is two years after the death of a person. There are times when exceptions may apply. If you miss these deadlines, you risk losing your only chance to receive the compensation necessary for your injury-related costs.

Where Do I File A lawsuit?

 

Most personal injury claims in Texas are handled in civil courts. As a result, you will need to file your complaint in a civil courtroom rather than a criminal court of law. Typically, this entails filing a personal injury claim with the state trial court, commonly known as a district court in Texas. However, injury victims have the option of filing a civil lawsuit in a county-level court if the projected value of the claim is between $200 and $10,000.

The presiding judge will then evaluate whether the claimant has a genuine basis for the complaint and how to continue the case. In certain situations, the presiding judge may elect to have the case heard in federal court. This is especially likely if the case was filed in a federal court, as well as if the defendant resides or does business in a different state. Cases with more than $75,000 in damages are sometimes tried in federal courts.

People may not be aware that they have the option of selecting which court in Texas to bring their case. This is significant since some courts (the legal term for a court with the authority to decide on the lawsuit) may be more receptive to certain claims than other courts. In general, the plaintiff may file a lawsuit in up to three different locations:

  • The district court that has jurisdiction over where the accident took place
  • The district court that has jurisdiction over where the plaintiff lives
  • The district court that has jurisdiction over where the defendant lives or does business

An attorney knowledgeable about Texas’s legal system and the procedures in each of the state’s distinct jurisdictions can advise you on where to file your lawsuit.

How Can An Attorney Help You In Filing A Personal Injury Lawsuit?

 

While you do not need to hire an attorney to bring a personal injury lawsuit in Texas, many persons choose to do so for a variety of reasons. To begin with, an experienced attorney understands how the legal system works in Texas. If you mistakenly file a document that is not entirely accurate, for example, the judge in your case may decide to dismiss it based on a variety of reasons.

If you go to an attorney instead of attempting to represent yourself, your chances of success are generally considerably better. That is why if you’re thinking about taking legal action in Texas, it’s critical to speak with an attorney who is licensed to practice law in the state.

This website contains articles and commentary regarding certain jury verdicts. However, a jury verdict often does not reflect the actual amount that a plaintiff receives. Judges often reduce jury awards. Sometimes Judges add attorneys’ fees and other damages to awards. As a result, final awards or settlements, are often for different amounts than the amount awarded by the jury. Many of the jury awards discussed on the website, ended up being dramatically reduced.
