What Damages Can I Recover In A Personal Injury Claim?
While the specific amount of compensation you can recover will depend on the facts of your case, there are three main types of damages an injury victim can pursue in a personal injury claim. Those damages include:
- Economic damages
- Non-economic damages
- Punitive damages
Economic damages compensate the injured party for financial losses, such as medical expenses or missed work time due to the injury. Non-economic damages, as the name suggests, compensate the injured party for non-financial suffering, like pain and suffering or mental anguish. The last type of damages differ from the first two in that their main purpose is to punish the negligent party, and punitive damages are not often awarded.
Texas Statute Of Limitations For Personal Injuries
Victims of personal injuries have up to two years from the date of their accident to file their personal injury claim. It is important that you get help from an attorney at our firm as soon as possible after your injury.
How We Can Help
Our lawyers have the decades experience needed to explore every available option for getting you the compensation you need and deserve. We can investigate the accident and gather helpful information such as photos from the accident scene, as well as witness statements. We can also handle all communications with the insurance company and keep you up to date on your case as it progresses. Our goal is to alleviate your burdens and help you get the maximum available compensation for your injuries — all while you focus on what matters most: your health and family.
A number of our attorneys are Board Certified in Civil Trial Law and Personal Injury Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Our attorneys have also been named among America’s Top 100 Lawyers. To learn more about personal injury matters in Texas, please see our Catastrophic Injury FAQ.
