What Compensation Is Available in a Dallas Personal Injury Claim?

If you’ve suffered injuries in an accident, understanding the potential compensation available is crucial for ensuring that you receive fair and just reparation for your damages. In a Dallas personal injury claim, various types of compensation, often referred to as damages, may be pursued to address the physical, emotional, and financial toll of your injuries. There are three types of compensation available to qualifying accident victims in Dallas: economic damages, non-economic damages, and exemplary damages.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are quantifiable losses. They have easily defined dollar values or can be approximated. Economic damages may include any of the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Travel expenses
  • Rehabilitation and occupational therapy
  • Surgery and medication
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Home and vehicle modifications

Non-economic Damages

Non-economic damages are subjective, personal damages. These have no set cost but are recoverable. These may include:

  • Pain and suffering;
  • Mental and emotional trauma;
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder;
  • Depression and anxiety;
  • Scarring and disfigurement; and
  • Loss of enjoyment of life.

Exemplary Damages

Exemplary damages or punitive damages are rare in Dallas personal injury cases. The court may award exemplary damages when an at-fault party engages in gross negligence, fraudulent, or malicious conduct.

Exemplary damages are meant to set an example of or to punish the negligent party not necessarily to award the victim.

 

The specific damages applicable to your case can vary based on the circumstances of the accident and the extent of your injuries. Consulting with an experienced Dallas personal injury attorney will help you identify the types of compensation you may be eligible for and ensure that your claim is pursued comprehensively to address all relevant damages.

Preparing For Your First Meeting with a Dallas Personal Injury Lawyer

When you are preparing for your first meeting with a Dallas personal injury lawyer, it is important to be well-prepared. This meeting is a crucial step in your pursuit of justice and compensation for your injuries. Here’s how you can prepare for the initial consultation:

Questions to Ask Your Personal Injury Attorney

  • Will you be the one representing me or another attorney from the firm?
  • Are cases handled on a contingency basis? Are there any out-of-pocket costs I am expected to pay?
  • What is my role in my representation? How am I expected to contribute?

Next, be prepared to answer questions about and discuss your accident and injuries. This may mean reliving trauma you would prefer to forget. However, your prospective attorney must know the particulars of your accident from your perspective.

What You Might Be Asked About

  • Your overall health and well-being since the accident;
  • Whether you have spoken with any insurance adjusters;
  • Any doctors’ visits and prognoses;
  • Your automobile or other insurance coverage; and
  • Any medical bills or lien claims.

Relevant Documents to Bring

  • Medical bills
  • Explanations of future treatment
  • Dates of hospital stays and surgeries
  • A list of prescription medications
  • Insurance documentation
  • Police reports
  • Incident reports
  • Accident photos
  • Injury photos
  • Documentation of lost income or work with dates.

Being prepared for your first meeting with a personal injury lawyer will help ensure that the lawyer has all the necessary information to evaluate your case properly. It also gives you the opportunity to assess the lawyer’s expertise and decide whether they are the right fit for you.

A Dallas personal injury claim is initiated by filing with the negligent party’s insurance company. This formal claim serves as notice of your injuries and signifies your intent to seek compensation. Engaging a reputable Dallas personal injury attorney for this process not only demonstrates your commitment but also marks the initial step toward potential settlement negotiations. It is advisable to consult with your lawyer before directly contacting the negligent party’s insurance company.

Given that insurance companies may employ tactics that could be detrimental to your case, such as recording conversations or pressuring you to admit guilt, having legal representation becomes essential. Your Dallas injury lawyer will skillfully negotiate with the insurance company to secure a settlement aligning with your best interests. In cases where a satisfactory agreement cannot be reached, your lawyer may advise initiating a personal injury lawsuit.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Dallas?

In Texas, the statute of limitations for most personal injury cases is two years from the date of the injury. This means that you must file a lawsuit within two years of the date on which the accident occurred or when the injury was discovered. Failing to take action within this time frame typically results in losing your right to sue for damages related to your injury.

What is the Theory of Negligence?

Personal injuries are based on the theory of negligence. If you were injured as the result of another person’s negligence and suffered damages as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for those damages.

Your Dallas personal injury lawyer must prove the following to establish a negligence claim on your behalf:

  • The other person or party owed you a duty of care;
  • The other person or party breached that duty of care;
  • The other person or party caused you to suffer an injury; and
  • As a result of that injury, you suffered damages.

Without actual damages, there is no basis for a personal injury claim. An experienced personal injury lawyer will thoroughly examine the facts of your case to determine responsibility for your injuries along with any accident-related damages both current and future.

What if I am Partially at Fault for My Dallas Personal Injury Accident?

Texas is a modified comparative fault state or proportionate responsibility state. This means an injured person may recover compensation even if they are partially at fault for an accident.

In a modified comparative fault system, each party to an accident is assigned a percentage of fault for a victim’s injuries. If the victim is found at fault, they must not be more than 51% responsible for their injuries. Any victim bearing more than 51% fault for their injuries is barred from recovery.

If a victim is found less than 51% responsible for their injuries, any monetary damages they are awarded will be reduced by their percentage of fault. For example, a victim who is awarded $100,000 in damages but found 50% at fault for their accident will have their award reduced by $50,000. The victim’s total damages received will be $50,000.

The purpose of Texas’s modified comparative fault law is to prevent injured parties from collecting monetary damages when they bear the majority of the responsibility for their injuries.

Dallas Personal Injury FAQs

How do I know if I have a valid personal injury claim in Dallas?

If you’ve suffered harm due to another party’s negligence or intentional actions, you might have a valid personal injury claim. Consulting with an experienced Dallas personal injury lawyer can help assess the strength of your case.

How much does it cost to hire a Dallas personal injury lawyer?

At Mathias Raphael PLLC Accident & Injury Lawyers, we work on a contingency fee basis for personal injury cases in Dallas. This means you don’t pay upfront legal fees. Instead, our fee is a percentage of the compensation we secure for you. If we don’t win your case, you don’t owe us anything.

While you can communicate with insurance companies, it’s important to note that they often aim to settle for the lowest amount possible. Having a skilled Dallas personal injury lawyer on your side can ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive fair compensation for your injuries and damages.

What steps should I take to maximize my compensation in a Dallas personal injury claim?

To maximize your compensation, it’s important to seek prompt medical attention, follow your doctor’s instructions, document your injuries and treatment, avoid discussing your case on social media, and consult an experienced Dallas personal injury lawyer.
