Crash statistics compiled by the Texas Department of Transportation show that one person died in a Texas traffic accident a little more than once every two hours. Somebody was injured in a traffic crash nearly every two minutes.
The damages that a person might recover after being injured in a car crash differ from case to case, but Texas law generally allows an injured person to seek compensation for the following:
- Past medical bills and medical bills reasonably expected to be incurred in the future
- Past lost earnings and lost earnings reasonably expected to be lost in the future
- Any permanent disfigurement
- Any permanent disability
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral and burial costs in the event of a wrongful death
In order to put a case together that secures the highest settlement or verdict on the facts of the case, we’re required to prove that that you were injured through the carelessness and negligence of somebody else. Under Texas Evidence Rules, some of the evidence that we’re able to raise in support of your case includes but isn’t limited to witness and police testimony, photos, video footage, medical bills, records and reports, lost earnings verification and accident reconstruction testimony when necessary.
The statute of limitations
The Texas legislature has set a specific period of time within which a personal injury case in an auto accident must be filed. That time is two years from the date of the accident. There are very few exceptions to this rule. Failure to file a personal injury lawsuit within two years of the date of an accident will likely result in dismissal of the case.
