I was injured in a car accident. How much is my case worth?

That depends on a number of factors. The value of your case is determined by the type and extent of your injuries, your medical expenses, and what kind of condition you are in when you have completed your medical treatment. Also taken into consideration is the ability of the responsible party to pay any judgment and whether you played any role in the cause of the accident. When you talk to a Dallas personal injury lawyer at our firm, we will be able to assess your situation to determine if you have a viable personal injury case.

What kind of compensation might I get from a personal injury claim?

Each case is different and has its own set of unique circumstances. However, the areas that might be covered in monetary compensation include past medical bills, future medical bills, past lost wages, loss of future earning potential, and pain and suffering. A general idea of what these areas might add up to may be determined once all medical records and statements have been received and it is determined whether your physical and emotional health has improved or worsened since you were injured.

What is negligence?

Negligence is conduct that fails to meet standards of behavior or action by law that has been established for the protection of individuals against unreasonable risk of harm. An individual acts in a negligent way when his conduct departs from behavior that a reasonably prudent person would display under similar circumstances. For example, a driver on the highway is expected to drive in a manner that takes into consideration the safety of other drivers. When a driver operates his car while intoxicated, he is being negligent.

How long does a personal injury case take?

Every case has its own unique characteristics and there is no general rule as to how long a case will take. Some cases are clear liability cases with simple damages, which can be settled very quickly. Other cases, such as product liability cases, can be very complicated. Often, cases are settled out of court. Those cases which are contested and must go to court will take longer to be concluded.
