Choosing a Personal Injury Attorney
When you have been seriously injured, you need to look for an attorney with trial experience. Trial experience is crucial because a trial attorney can take the case all the way to trial, if needed. Additionally, a trial attorney is a bigger threat to the insurance companies and the big corporations out there who don’t want to fully and fairly compensate clients for the injuries that their negligence has caused.
Perhaps most importantly, you want to have an attorney with heart – somebody who truly cares for their clients and who truly believes in what they are doing.
Compensation for Emotional Damages
Yes, you can recover for emotional distress or emotional anguish in Texas. Emotional damages is something that we always look at in order to fully and fairly compensate clients who have suffered serious injuries.
Personal Injury Claim with Low Medical Bills
When medical expenses are low, clients often worry that they may not have a good, valid claim in Texas. For example, a recent client of our firm, as a result of the negligence of their employer, actually had their hand cut off at work. The medical expenses from the hospital were very low, surprisingly. There were, however, other types of damages that we were able to prove, such as future treatment, future prosthetics and future care. This strategy put our client in the best position possible. In short, there is no minimum, in terms of medical expenses, that would make a case invalid in Texas.
Pre-Existing Conditions and Injury Claims
The other day we spoke with a client with a pre-existing injury who wondered how it would affect their case. The answer is the defendant or the negligent party must pay for any difference or any worsening of the injuries as a result of their negligence. To put it very simply, it is not a barrier to getting fully and fairly compensated under the law.
Role of an Expert Witness
Expert witnesses play a pivotal role in personal injury cases. For example, in a trucking case, one might need a crash reconstructionist with experience in putting together a trucking collision case. If it is a medical malpractice case, it is important to hire the correct type of medical expert to give an opinion in that case. If it is a case involving injuries in an industrial worksite, you need a forensic engineer who can talk about safety and the rules that the negligent party violated. We know how to find and handle the issue of expert witnesses.
