Recover Fair Compensation by Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit

When you are injured, you have a right to bring a personal injury claim against the wrongdoer and recover compensation for your injuries. Your right to recover allows you to receive compensation from the responsible party for the economic and non-economic damages you have suffered.

What Economic Damages Are Available in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

Economic damages are intended to help return a person to their original, pre-injury financial position. Economic damages are often easier to assess than non-economic damages because they are typically objective losses. Your economic damages are made up of past and future medical expenses, loss of past and future earnings, loss of use of property, costs of repair or replacement, the economic value of domestic services, and loss of employment or business opportunities, among others. To accurately account for all economic damages, it is crucial that you have a trained attorney who can correctly identify all costs that can be attributed to your injuries.

What Non-Economic Damages Are Available in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

Non-economic damages are designed to compensate for an injured person’s pain, emotional distress and suffering, and other harm related to an accident. Non-economic damages are often referred to as intangible harms resulting from your injuries. Common examples include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and disfigurement. Accidents happen with no more than a moment’s notice, but the effects of an accident can last a lifetime. While non-economic damages are harder to quantify and more difficult to assign a monetary value to, their significance is enormous. Frequently recovery for non-economic damages is much greater than the economic damages awarded by the judge or jury. It is of utmost importance to have a trained attorney working on your injury claim if you want to ensure that the responsible party pays all damages to which you are legally entitled by law, including both economic and non-economic damages.

Statute of Limitations in Personal Injury Lawsuits

Under Texas law, a person wrongfully injured by another’s conduct must bring a claim to recover damages within two years from the date the injury occurred. If the injury resulted in death, the surviving family must bring a lawsuit against the wrongdoer within two years from the date of passing. Except in rare circumstances, the statute of limitations conclusively precludes recovery. The U.S. Supreme Court said, “Statutes of limitation … in their conclusive effects are designed to promote justice by preventing surprises through the revival of claims that have been allowed to slumber until evidence has been lost, memories have faded, and witnesses have disappeared.” While an injured victim has a right to recover from the wrongdoer for all harm caused by the wrongful conduct, such action must be initiated within the statute of limitations provided by law.

Personal Injury Claims and Lawsuits

Following an accident that results in personal injury, our attorneys will begin building your case to maximize your recovery and hold all wrongdoers accountable for their actions. This is known as litigation. During the litigation process, there will be multiple opportunities for the wrongdoer to accept responsibility and settle your claim for a fair amount. However, if the wrongdoer does not accept responsibility and fairly compensates you for the pain and suffering you have endured, we will take them to trial where a body of the community will determine the wrongdoer’s responsibility.

Step 1
Consult our Personal Injury Lawyers

If you have suffered an injury, our personal injury lawyers will meet with you to discuss your rights and help you better understand what to expect during the litigation process. Many of our clients our outside of Houston, and we ensure that these clients have full access to us through the use of Zoom and other means of communication. During your consultation, we will begin gathering the information we need to successfully prosecute your personal injury claim.

Step 2
Investigating a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Investigating a personal injury claim involves a comprehensive examination of the circumstances surrounding your injury. Gathering evidence is crucial and requires including medical records, witness statements, and photographs of the accident scene or injury. Additionally, investigators delve into any available surveillance footage, accident reports, and expert opinions to substantiate your claim and maximize your recovery. Evaluating the liable party’s negligence or misconduct is a central aspect of the investigation, as it forms the basis for determining liability and ultimately the party responsible for compensating you for your injury.

Step 3
File a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Filing a personal injury lawsuit is the formal initiation of a legal process to resolve your claim and hold the wrongdoer accountable for the harm you have suffered. The process begins by drafting a complaint and filing it in the appropriate court. The defendant is served with a summons and a copy of the complaint, providing notice of the lawsuit and their legal obligations. Once the lawsuit is officially commenced, both parties engage in pre-trial procedures. The ultimate goal of filing a lawsuit is to bring the matter before a judge or jury for a fair and impartial resolution.

Step 4
Demand to Settle your Personal Injury Lawsuit

Sending a demand to settle your Houston personal injury claim is a pivotal step needed to resolve your personal injury lawsuit without the need for a trial.  This formal communication outlines the basis of your claim, the injuries you have suffered, and the compensation required to settle the case. It also includes a deadline for the defendant to respond. If the defendant does not respond timely or refuses to accept responsibility and pay the compensation you are rightfully owed, we will take your case to trial and hold the defendant accountable in front of a judge and jury.

Step 5
Discovery to Build a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Discovery allows both parties to gather and exchange information, evidence, and relevant documents to build their respective cases. This process encompasses various legal mechanisms, such as interrogatories, where written questions are posed and answered under oath, and depositions, where witnesses are orally examined and cross-examined. Requests for the production of documents allow parties to demand the submission of relevant records and evidence held by the opposing party. Discovery ensures transparency, bolsters legal arguments, and uncovers potential strengths and weaknesses in each side’s position.

Step 6
Mediating a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Mediation is a formal opportunity for you and the defendant to come together and resolve your personal injury claims without a trial. An impartial third party, known as a mediator, facilitates constructive communication between the parties. During mediation, each side presents their perspectives and concerns, and the mediator assists in identifying common ground and exploring potential compromises. Many clients are concerned with mediation. However, you and the defendant are not in the same room, and you are present with your lawyer.

Step 7
Trial for a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Trial happens when the defendant does not accept responsibility for their actions and fairly compensates you after attempting to settle your claims. During a personal injury trial, both parties present their cases before a judge and/or jury. During this process, we prove to the jury the liability of the wrongdoer and the harm you have suffered as a result.

Commonly Asked Questions


  • Can I recover medical expenses in a Houston personal injury lawsuit?

    Yes. Wrongdoers are legally responsible for covering all costs associated with your injuries. This includes costs of health care, medicine, home or vehicle modifications, and other medical expenses that are necessary for you to recover and/or live life as normally as possible.

  • Can I recover lost wages in a Houston personal injury lawsuit?

    Yes. When you miss work because of an injury caused by someone else’s negligent conduct, you have a right to recover compensation for all losses resulting from your injuries. This includes wages you have lost because you were unable to work, as well as future wages that you may not receive as a result of your injury. If, because of the severity of your injuries, you are never able to work again, the responsible party would be required to compensate you for those losses.

  • Can a Houston personal injury lawyer prove lost wages?

    To prove that you have lost wages because of your injury, you must show that you were unable to return to work because of your injuries and, as a result, lost out on wages you otherwise would have received. If your injuries are of such severity that you will be unable to return to work in the future, our firm will work with economists and other experts to determine your future earning potential to prove the total loss of wages resulting from your injury. This provides you and your family with the financial security needed to move forward from a serious injury.

  • Can I recover for compensation for my pain and suffering in a personal injury lawsuit?

    Yes. Under Texas and most other states’ laws, you are entitled to non-economic damages caused by your injuries. Non-economic damages are damages that are not readily quantifiable. While these types of damages do not have a price in the marketplace, they are nevertheless losses you are entitled to be compensated for. These damages include things like pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and disfigurement.

  • How do I legally prove the value of my pain and suffering?

    It is difficult to take an emotion or physical sensation and turn it into a dollar amount. However, this must be done for you to receive the compensation you are entitled to under the law. One of the distinguishing factors in the quality of a personal injury attorney is their ability to value your non-economic damages correctly. This requires great skill and experience and the help of industry experts in medicine, counseling, and other disciplines. It is very important to adequately value your pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment, and other non-economic damages if you intend to recover all compensation you are entitled to under the law.

  • Do I need a Houston personal injury attorney to bring a lawsuit?

    No. You do not need a personal injury attorney to bring a personal injury lawsuit in Texas. You have a right to bring a claim against the person or company that hurt you as a pro se litigant. However, depending on your situation, you may find great value in consulting a personal injury attorney and will likely recover more compensation, even after your lawyer is paid.

  • What is a pro se litigant?

    A pro se litigant is a party representing themselves in court without the assistance of a licensed attorney. Pro se litigants are still required to know the laws and the rules of procedure applicable to the jurisdiction the lawsuit is filed. Navigating a personal injury lawsuit without the help of a personal injury lawyer is difficult.

  • Can I recover compensation if I am partially responsible for my injury?

    Yes. Texas adheres to a modified comparative negligence standard. Under this standard, an injured person is entitled to recover compensation for their injuries as long as they are not more than 50% responsible for the accident. Even if you are partially responsible for the accident, it is often beneficial to speak with a trained personal injury attorney to determine if a personal injury claim is worth pursuing.

  • How do I hire a personal injury attorney?

    Hiring a personal injury attorney is like hiring any other professional service provider; you consult potential candidates, review their work, and decide whom you feel most comfortable with. Once you have decided whom you feel most comfortable working with, you and your attorney will enter into a contractual agreement that gives the attorney power to act on your behalf to prosecute your claim.

  • How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?

    Personal injury lawyers generally work on a contingency fee basis, so their cost is dependent on how much you recover.  In a contingency fee agreement, the cost of your lawyer’s services is contingent on the claim resolving in your favor. If your attorney is not successful, then you are not required to pay for the lawyer’s services. A contingency fee allows an injured victim to bring a lawsuit without upfront costs.

  • Does a personal injury lawyer need to be in the city where I live?

    No. As long as a lawyer is licensed to practice law in your state or works with a lawyer that is licensed to practice law in your state, they can represent you. In complicated cases, such as product liability lawsuits, it may be necessary to work with lawyers from different cities or states to bring a claim against the manufacturer. Many times, after being hired, local lawyers will reach out to larger firms to help prosecute complicated claims.
