Were you or a loved one seriously injured due to another’s negligence? Here is what you should know about an injury. Call our lawyers today!
1) Emotional Damages
Individuals with personal injury claims often wonder if they can recover for emotional distress or emotional anguish. The answer in Texas is yes. Emotional damages is something that we always look at in order to fully and fairly compensate clients who have suffered serious injuries.
2) Pre-Existing Conditions
The other day we spoke with a client with a preexisting 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.
That is something that we have a lot of experience with at the Chavez Law Firm. We ask our clients about issues such as this during our client intake, and we prepare for those types of situations throughout trial. If you have any questions related to a preexisting condition, please give us a call. We’ll be more than happy to answer your questions and help you out.
3) Settling Before Trial
Oftentimes I have clients who come in and they ask about whether or not they have to go to trial. They want to try to get their case resolved before going to trial. The truth of the matter is the vast majority of cases don’t go to trial and settle beforehand. The only time cases don’t settle before going to trial is because the insurance company or the big corporation is being unfair; they’re not fully and fairly compensating clients for what they have done to them.
At the Chavez Law Firm, we always prepare for trial because we know that when you prepare for the end result, you have a better chance of getting full and fair compensation for your clients.
4) Steps to File a Personal Injury Claim
If you are seriously injured in El Paso, the steps for filing a lawsuit from the client’s perspective are very simple. First and foremost, find a lawyer with significant trial experience. That lawyer will know what to do and take you through the steps, which are, one, to file a lawsuit, serve the negligent party, and then you go through a process of paper discovery, deposition or testimony discovery of the bad guys or the black hats, and, at that point, you’re ready to go to trial. It’s a very simple process, in terms of the steps, and then we go to trial.
If you have any questions about what it takes to go to trial or what are the steps, please give us a call at the Chavez Law Firm. We are trial experienced attorneys with a lot of trial experience, and we’ll be able to answer all of your questions and help you in any way we can.
