On Behalf of | Dec 19, 2022 | PERSONAL INJURY (PLAINTIFF) - Personal Injury

An accident or incident during which someone suffers an injury has the potential to change everything for a Texas family. The aftermath of a personal injury event can result in medical bills, damage to personal property and mental duress. If an accident victim is suffering due to the actions of another party, the victim and his or her family may have grounds to pursue compensation through a civil claim. The specific amount of damages one should seek depends on the details of the individual situation.

Different types of damages

Economic recovery is critical for an accident victim. It can take years to recover financially from an accident, and an innocent victim should not have to carry this burden alone. Some of the economic and non-economic damages one may be able to pursue through a civil claim include:

  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Medical bills and ongoing medical needs
  • General needs and services
  • Future health care needs

An assessment of the individual case can reveal what damages are available to an accident victim through a civil claim. It is important to evaluate both intangible effects of the event as well as financial needs.

The civil claims process

Seeking damages after an accident can be a difficult process. A Texas accident victim will benefit from the guidance and support of an experienced attorney at every step through the civil justice system. It may be helpful to reach out for an assessment and explanation of the specific legal options available as soon as possible after an accident.
