Personal Injury Attorney in Dallas, Texas
Over the years I've learned that personal injury case law exists to help provide injury victims with some form of recourse for the negligent actions that have left them injured. When you've been injured in an accident due to someone else's negligence, it's only fair that the party responsible for your injuries actually pay for the medical treatment you need to recover. That's why I've worked with countless individuals across the Dallas area to help them seek compensation that can help cover their medical costs and ease the burden of recovery.
When you've been injured in an accident, you can't afford to hire an experienced attorney who doesn't understand the various laws surrounding personal injury. In Texas, if you can prove that the party responsible for your injuries acted negligently or irresponsibly, the court can award damages in the form of compensation. Damages can be awarded in virtually any personal injury case, from car and motorcycle accidents to dog bites and wrongful death lawsuits. What's important to remember is that there is a statute of limitations on how long you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. Texas state law stipulates that you have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. Any lawsuit filed after this two-year window will likely be thrown out by the courts and you will lose your right to any compensation.
What Can I Expect in A Personal Injury Trial?
While most people may want to avoid taking a personal injury case to trial, sometimes pursuing litigation is the only way to get the full value of your injury claim. If your injury case does proceed to trial, your case can either be a jury trial or a bench trial, the latter of which is heard by a judge and does not involve a jury. From there, both the plaintiff and the defendant will present evidence and testimony to argue their case before the jury or judge. Eventually, the judge or jury will deliberate before delivering a decision. It's also not uncommon for both sides to submit settlement offers that, if agreed upon, can end the trial process at any point. Ultimately, the entire process can take some time and is why it's important to have an experienced attorney that not only understands personal injury law, but also has extensive experience inside the courtroom to help you with your case.
