What is personal injury?

Anytime someone is injured due to the careless or negligent actions of another person, they should be fairly compensated for what has happened. However, proving negligence in these cases is not always easy. For a personal injury case to be successful, an attorney will need to prove the following in your case:

  • Duty: It needs to be shown that the person who caused you to harm owed your duty in some way. This can be a formal duty, such as the relationship between a doctor and a patient. This can also be a general duty owed by drivers on the roadway to operate their vehicles safely to protect those around them.
  • Breach: Your attorney will work to show the duty owed to you was breached in some way. This will be done by showing that the negligent party did not act any way that a reasonably prudent person would act in the same situation.
  • Causation: Your attorney will then work to show that the breach of duty directly caused your injuries.
  • Damages: Finally, your attorney will establish that the breach of duty led to losses such as medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering, etc.

Aside from obvious traumatic injuries, we also recognize that many injury victims suffer from significant emotional and psychological damage in the aftermath of sustaining a physical injury. This emotional and psychological trauma can stem from the incident itself as well as from the injuries and the subsequent recovery.

How long do you have to file a Dallas personal injury lawsuit?

Personal injury victims in Dallas need to be aware of the timeframe in place to file a civil claim against the person who caused their injury. The Texas statute of limitations is two years from the date the injury occurs. This gives Dallas injury victims a two-year window with which to file a claim against the alleged negligent party in their case. Failing to file a claim within this timeframe will result in the victim being unable to recover the compensation they deserve.
