The essence of personal injury law is that you should not be responsible for the financial ramifications of that accident if it were not your fault.
In Texas, there are situations where someone else could be held accountable for the damages you have suffered, which means that they should be financially responsible as well. We can take a look at your case for you and see if someone should be held accountable for the injuries you have sustained.
Unfortunately, there are lots of types of accidents that could happen in the local area. Some of the most common types of personal injury cases that we take include:
Motor vehicle accidents are widespread in the local area, and after a motor vehicle accident, you need to seek medical care as quickly as possible. Then, after a doctor has examined you, you need to contact us to schedule a free case consultation. We can pursue compensation that can cover the cost of your property damage and ensure that your medical expenses are adequately protected.
When we can no longer care for our loved ones in our homes, we may reach out to a nursing home instead. We expect nursing homes to provide our loved ones with a high level of care, and if they fall short, we may be able to file a nursing home abuse claim.
Some of the most common types of nursing home abuse that take place include financial abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, and even sexual abuse.
When you visit a local business, you expect the business to take appropriate care of its property. You could suffer a serious injury if business owners do not perform proper maintenance.
If we prove that the business owner did not exercise a reasonable duty of care to take care of that business, we can file a premises liability claim on your behalf. It could help you get the cost of your medical expenses covered.
You expect companies to place safe products on the shelves, and when they fall short of this, you could have a product liability claim. While accidents may happen occasionally, we can prove that a good company should have done more to protect you and reduce the chances of an accident. We can conduct a full investigation and see if any regulatory standards were overlooked.
Pedestrians almost always have the right of way in the local area, and it is the responsibility of drivers to watch for pedestrians who might be crossing the street.
Call 911 and ask emergency personnel to come to the scene if you are struck by another vehicle. Then, remember that you need to see a doctor as well. Once this is done, contact us to schedule a case consultation. We can review your case and see if somebody should be held responsible.
If you have driven around town recently, you know many construction projects are taking place. While it is significant that the area is expanding, construction accidents can also happen from time to time.
For example, a falling object may strike you, or you may trip and fall because specific equipment has been left out. If you are involved in a construction accident, we can review the case to see if someone should be held responsible.
We are fortunate to have such great medical care in the local area, and the overwhelming majority of doctors are amazing people who will go above and beyond to meet the needs of their patients.
Sadly, mistakes may happen occasionally, and if they occur in the doctor’s office, we can look at your case to see if somebody should be held responsible. Always make sure your injuries are appropriately addressed.
It is sad when a loved one dies, but it is downright tragic if the death could have been preventable. We have a significant amount of experience pursuing wrongful death cases in the local area, and we can look at your case to see if someone else should be held responsible for the death of your loved one.
It does not necessarily mean that something criminal happened, but it could still mean that someone should be held accountable.
You may think you can recover at home, but you may be surprised at how many medical expenses appear in your mailbox. Even with health insurance, you could still be responsible for your deductible, numerous co-pays, and even coinsurance. How will you make ends meet if you cannot cover these expenses alone?
You should not have to pay these medical expenses if the accident was not your fault, and that is why you should consider taking legal action. We can review your case to see if we can pursue compensation to cover your medical expenses.
You need to contact our legal team because we understand the fundamentals of personal injury law. If you want to win your personal injury case, there are several elements that you need to prove. As the plaintiff, the burden will be verifying that someone else is at fault and that you have been somehow harmed.
The criteria that you need to prove if you want to win your case include the following:
We should have a successful personal injury claim if we can prove all of these elements.
Texas has a time limit within which you need to file a personal injury claim. You have two years from the accident to file a personal injury claim, and while it may feel like you have a long time, the clock will tick quickly. Contacting us immediately after the accident will be best to protect your rights.
If you have a successful personal injury claim, there are different types of damages we can pursue. Some of the most common types of damages we may be able to recover on your behalf include the following:
We can always pursue economic damages on your behalf. Economic damages refer to any expenses you have incurred that have a receipt attached. All we need to do is add up the value of those receipts and ask for a settlement that matches that number.
For example, if you have bills from a car repair shop or medical expenses following the accident, you can pursue economic damages to cover these expenses.
We can also pursue non-economic damages on your behalf. You have suffered these damages but do not necessarily have a receipt attached to them. For example, if you have lost income due to the accident or suffered emotional distress, we may be able to pursue economic damages for you.
Not every case is going to be entitled to punitive damages. Still, these damages are designed to punish the other party in the event of a particularly egregious accident. We can review your case to see if it deserves punitive damages.
At Ward + White, our personal injury attorney will always put your rights first to win your case. We can conduct a complete investigation, depose witnesses, call on experts, and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf to ensure your rights are protected.
We do not get paid unless we win, so we have the incentive to help you recover as much compensation as possible. Rely on Ward + White to defend your rights following an accident in the area.
We would happily provide a free consultation to see if you are entitled to compensation.
