Have you or any of your loved ones been hurt in an accident in Fort Worth? You are not alone. Each year, over 421,800 crashes occur on Texas roads, resulting in an injury count that is estimated to be as high as 200,700. This frightening statistic may come as less of a surprise considering that Texas is also home to 11 of the 50 most dangerous highways, with 3 of those top 11 located right here in DFW. Commercial vehicle crashes, car and truck collisions, multiple automobile pileups, workplace accidents, and more can cause the types of bodily, mental and emotional injury that can leave a person suffering and facing difficult new challenges, often with few resources to depend upon.
Personal injury law was devised to protect you and your property in exactly these instances. In the event of another individual or entity’s failure to act, or if that party acts irresponsibly, personal injury claims can bring justice and deliver compensation for the losses you suffered.
Tort law, another name for Personal Injury law, is centered around two primary concerns. Proving these factors is what determines the outcome of your claim and the related payout.
Liability – legal responsibility for accident or injury sustained
Joint Liability – each of the multiple defendants shares full responsibility
Several Liability – each of the multiple defendants is responsible for their percentage of the overall responsibility
Damages – the actual injury or loss caused to a person or property
Compensatory – quantifiable damages such as monies owed for rectifying the personal injury event, including medical bills, repairs and replacement of property, payment covering loss or lost income
General – harder to quantify losses such as pain and suffering as well as future earnings
Punitive – damages to punish a defendant for particularly inexcusable conduct
