Pursuing A Personal Injury Case In Texas
To pursue a personal injury claim in Texas, the injured party must prove the following things:
- Duty of care: The defendant had a legal duty to act with reasonable care towards the plaintiff.
- Breach of duty: The defendant breached their duty of care through action or inaction.
- Proximate cause: The breach of duty directly caused or led to a series of events that resulted in the defendant’s injuries.
- Damages: The plaintiff suffered injuries or damages as a result of the defendant’s negligence.
If the plaintiff can prove these elements in court, they may be entitled to compensation for their injuries and damages. This compensation can include economic damages, such as medical bills and lost wages, as well as compensation for non-economic damages, which include suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. There are also exemplary damages that punish a party if their act of fraud, malice, or gross negligence caused someone’s injuries.
Texas’s Modified Comparative Fault Rule
Texas operates under a modified comparative fault rule. This means that the compensation a plaintiff can recover could be reduced if a judge finds them to be partially at fault for the accident. If a judge finds a plaintiff to be more than 50% at fault, they can bar the plaintiff from recovering damages altogether.
The Statute of Limitation for Personal Injury Claims in Texas
According to state law, an injured party has two years from the date of the injury or accident to file a claim. If they fail to file within this period, they risk forfeiting the right to seek compensation. There are some exceptions to the rule, namely for minors and individuals suffering from mental illness.
