Texas Personal Injury Laws
Injuries that are caused by another person’s or entity’s negligence or recklessness may result in a personal injury lawsuit in Texas. Injured parties—or plaintiffs—have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit.
In order to succeed in a personal injury claim, you and your attorney must prove the following elements:
- The defendant—or at-fault party—owed you a “duty of care” to either obey the laws or protect the safety and well-being of others.
- The defendant breached that duty by behaving in a way that a reasonable person in the same situation would not have acted.
- The defendant’s breach caused the accident and your injuries.
- You suffered losses—or monetary damages—as a result of the accident and your injuries.
There are two main types of damages you are eligible for: economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages represent the financial losses you incurred from the accident, such as hospital and medical bills, lost income, and property damage, while non-economic damages represent the damages that don’t have a clear monetary value, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment in life.
However, if the defendant’s actions were grossly negligent or egregious in nature, you may be subject to punitive damages. These damages are designed to punish the defendant and ensure this type of conduct doesn’t occur in the future.
