Accident Victims Face Many Obstacles To Restoring Their Lives.
Lost work, family issues and repairing damages to property are just a few, with many being permanently disabled. Gaining compensatory damages can allow victims to begin piecing their lives back together after a serious personal injury. Some claims may also be entitled to punitive damages, which aim to punish and deter future egregious behavior.
In personal injury cases, victims may seek compensatory damages from the responsible party, those who contributed to the accident or their insurance providers for the following damages:
Medical Bills: Medical treatment after an accident can be extensive and expensive. Personal injury compensation allows victims to gain the costs needed to recover physically.
Lost Wages: After a severe injury, it may be impossible to return to work temporarily or permanently. This can be an especially difficult if you or a loved one provided your family’s main source of income. Injury compensation can cover your lost future wages, or “potential income,” if you will require long-term treatment or sustain a disability.
Emotional Trauma: The persistent emotional trauma from serious accidents can be devastating. Accident compensation may attempt to cover the emotional trauma the crash caused you and your family.
Pain and Suffering: Injury compensation may be available to cover the physical pain and discomfort associated with a serious accident injury.
Property Damages: Most personal injuries, such as car accidents or bicycle accidents, cause a loss or damage to property. You may be reimbursed for property damages.
Loss of Consortium and Loss of Enjoyment: Under some circumstances, personal injury damages can be recovered for the loss of enjoyment of day-to-day activities or family relationships caused by the injuries. In this instance a good civil litigation attorney who is well schooled in personal injury such as Shuster Law PLLC, should be the attorney of choice, as “future” damages or injuries might not show up until months of years later.

Is There a Time Limit to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Texas?
Filing a personal injury lawsuit is a time-sensitive matter. The more time you let pass between the accident and seeking legal help, the less evidence there may be on which to base your personal injury claim.
Texas law gives you two years after the date of the injury to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you would like to gain accident compensation for your injuries and damages, it is best to contact an attorney near you as soon as possible.
What Can Affect the Value of Personal Injury Damages?
In some Texas personal injury cases, an insurance company may try to name the victim partially responsible for the accident or injury. The victim’s “comparative negligence,” or the level to which they were also at fault, can play a role in how much compensatory damages victims receive. A failure to seek medical treatment immediately after an accident, thereby making injuries worse, can also lead to reduced damages. Seeking medical treatment immediately is crucial!
It is also crucial to NOT admit any type of possible fault at the time of an accident.
This happens way too often as individuals become frightened and scared when an accident occurs, but these admissions can affect the civil litigation and any damages you are awarded.
