WHAT QUALIFIES AS A PERSONAL INJURY CASE?
When an individual is harmed physically or psychologically by another’s act of carelessness or intentional malice, the person hurt has a right to file a personal injury claim. The purpose of personal injury law is to make sure the injured plaintiff, or victim, can be made “whole again” by financially compensating them for their medical bills, lost wages, and general pain and suffering. There are five basic categories under which your injury could fall:
True accidents can include anything from car crashes or medical malpractice to toxic exposure and wrongful death.
Intentional acts fall under personal injury if someone was injured by another on purpose, including assault and battery.
Defamation is psychological rather than physical. One’s reputation could have been harmed if someone released private information or pictures in the name of sabotage.
Defective products, including prescription drugs, heavy machinery, or construction tools can cause serious injuries.
Under any of these circumstances, you typically have one year to file a personal injury claim. If you live in the South Houston area and believe that your injury could fall under any of these categories, continue below to discover how an experienced personal injury attorney like me can help you fight for fair compensation.
Steps in a Personal Injury Lawsuit
From the moment we meet, I will help you through the entire personal injury lawsuit process with care, determination, and patience. Here is what a general timeline will look like.
Consult with an attorney to see if they are the right fit for you. To save you some money, I offer free consultations for all of my personal injury clients.
During the evaluation of your case, I will thoroughly examine photographs, hospital bills, witness statements, police reports, and more to build a case in your favor.
Demanding for settlement is the process of taking all of the information I gathered above to set before the judge and the defendant (the party at-fault for your injury) to provide reasoning as to why they should pay for damages. If the case cannot be settled amicably at this point, you will then file a lawsuit and it will then go to trial.
The discovery process involves more evidence research on both your side and the defendant’s to strengthen arguments for trial.
Mediation is the informal process of a judge acting as a middleman between each party in one last attempt to reach an agreement before trial.
A trial has only a 5% chance of happening, according to U.S. government statistics. A jury may be brought in to make the decision on how much you are compensated or if you should be compensated at all.
It is clear that pursuing compensation for your injury is complicated and tedious for everyone involved. You need an attorney that has the stamina to fight aggressively as your representation, from the consultation to the trial.
