Securing Justice and Recovering Compensation for an Injury or Accident

If you’ve been involved in a serious accident or suffered a life-altering injury, you already know just how steep the cost of an injury can be. Broken bones, traumatic head injuries, spinal cord injuries, soft-tissue damage, and other types of significant or severe injuries can affect every facet of your life, including your financial stability.

A personal injury claim or lawsuit gives accident and injury victims like you the opportunity to seek compensation from any and all at-fault parties.

Let’s take a closer look at what types of damages for which you may be entitled to compensation.

Economic Damages

In a personal injury case, economic damages refer to financial losses. A financial loss can include the direct costs that you’ve incurred since your injury or accident. It can also refer to future anticipated losses, such as the cost of expected medical care or the loss of future income if you can’t work.

There are no caps on economic damages in the state of Texas.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are your non-financial losses. They are all the ways that your life has been affected that don’t necessarily come with an attached price tag or bill. You can be compensated for pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment in life, and more.

In Texas, there are no caps for noneconomic damages—with one notable exception. Please make note of the following limitations on noneconomic damages for medical malpractice cases:

  • $250,000 for lawsuits filed against healthcare providers
  • $250,000 per health care facility, not to exceed $500,000 per lawsuit

In total, the maximum amount someone can recover for noneconomic damages in a medical malpractice case is $750,000.

Punitive Damages

Unlike economic and noneconomic damages, punitive damages don’t compensate you for any type of loss you’ve suffered. Instead, a jury or judge may choose to award punitive damages if the at-fault party’s actions were proven to be particularly malicious or fraudulent by clear and convincing evidence.

The state of Texas places a cap on compensation for punitive damages in all case types. Also known as exemplary damages, they are capped at:

  • Two times the total value of economic damages plus either
    • $200,000, or
    • An award equal to noneconomic damages not to exceed $250,000

The Role of Negligence in Proving Personal Injury Liability

Personal injury cases in Houston are built on the legal concept of negligence. Every lawyer at the Barrera Law Group LLC has the necessary skills and background needed to identify and prove acts of negligence.

This involves identifying the four main factors of negligent actions, which are:

  1. The at-fault party owed you a duty of care.
  2. The at-fault party violated their duty of care (such as by texting and driving or failing to keep their dog on a leash).
  3. You were injured by the other person’s actions or omissions.
  4. You suffered verifiable financial losses related to your injuries.

Preparing a personal injury case involves a significant amount of investigation, research, and preparation. An attorney from our Houston law office will be by your side every step of the way, from your very first free meeting to the resolution of your claim. We’ll identify important evidence and key facts in your case as we pursue the most successful outcome possible.

Possible Responsible Parties in a Personal Injury Case

A personal injury claim aims to hold the liable party responsible for their actions. Depending on the case, identifying the at-fault person or entity can be straightforward. However, complicating factors (including multiple liable parties) can make this a far more complex task than it may first appear to be.

Barrera Law Group LLC approaches every personal injury case we handle with a fresh and dedicated perspective. Through an in-depth investigation, we will correctly identify all parties who played a role in your accident or injury.

Parties that can potentially be held responsible through civil action include:

  • Drivers
  • Vehicle manufacturers
  • Auto mechanics
  • Trucking companies
  • Doctors
  • Healthcare workers
  • Healthcare facilities
  • Property owners
  • Dog owners
  • Nursing homes
  • And more

This is far from an exhaustive list of all individuals, companies, and entities that can be named in an injury lawsuit. To ensure that everyone who contributed to your accident faces justice for their actions, it is recommended that you work with an experienced legal team.

Houston Personal Injury Law FAQ

A serious or catastrophic injury can permanently alter your life. If you’ve been harmed by someone else’s negligence, you deserve to have a complete understanding of your legal rights.

Below, you’ll find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about personal injury claims in Texas. For any additional clarification or to discuss your own questions directly with an actual lawyer, you can contact our law office for a free, no-obligation informational meeting.

How will a Houston personal injury lawyer help my claim?

A personal injury lawyer will bring expertise, professionalism, and support to your case while you focus on what matters most—your health, well-being, and recovery.

When you hire a lawyer, they will investigate your claim, uncover and preserve evidence, deal with documentation and deadlines, field questions from the insurance company, and provide strength and support when you need it most.

Do I have a personal injury case?

An accidental injury can completely upend your life. If you’ve been hurt by someone else’s negligence, you may have legal grounds to recover compensation for your past, current, and future damages. The most effective way to determine if you have a valid case is to schedule a no-cost consultation with an experienced attorney.

Can I afford to hire an attorney?

Every law firm handles legal fees differently. When you meet with an attorney or legal team during your initial consultation, make sure you ask what their legal fees are, how they collect them, and when payment is expected.

At Barrera Law Group LLC, we are able to take many cases on a contingency fee basis. Also known as a no-win, no-fee pay structure, this allows us to provide our expert legal guidance without requiring any type of upfront payment. We only collect our legal fees as a small percentage of the final award or settlement—and we don’t charge anything unless we win.

This allows us to provide our vigorous legal representation to clients regardless of their financial resources.

How long do I have to file my claim?

The amount of time you have to file a personal injury claim or lawsuit is referred to as the statute of limitations. For most cases in Texas, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the accident or from the date that the injury was discovered.

Certain exceptions can extend the statute of limitations, such as claims involving minors.

Don’t count on an exception extending the period of time you have to take legal action. Talk with a lawyer today about how much time you have left to file your claim.

How long will it take to settle my claim?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. Every claim operates on its own timeline. A relatively straightforward car accident claim with minor injuries and little to no property damage can potentially be handled in a matter of weeks.

More complex cases, including those involving medical negligence or multiple layers of liability, can take months or even years to reach a successful conclusion.

For a better understanding of the possible timeline in your case, it’s best to work closely with your attorney.

How much will my settlement be?

Every personal injury claim is different, and so every personal injury settlement or award will be different. The value of your case will be highly dependent on the specific factors that are unique to your situation.

How much time you’ve missed at work, the amount of medical debt you’ve incurred, and the impact the injury has had on your life will all factor into how much compensation you may be entitled to.

It’s important that you correctly calculate the total value of your claim the first time. There won’t be another chance to go back and ask for more money in the future.
