The personal injury payouts in Texas can range from $3,000 to $75,000. This is largely dependent on the type of case, your injuries, level of fault, and whether or not you hire legal representation.
Have you been injured and are wondering if you can file a claim? We are going to review some of the most common types of personal injury cases filed in Texas.
Types of Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury cases are about recovering for the damages that you suffer due to the negligent or intentional acts of someone else. In Texas, you generally have 2 years from the date of the injury to file your lawsuit.
You should always consult with an attorney right away if you suffer an injury. It is best to not wait.
You also should understand that Texas is what is known as a modified comparative negligence state. This means that the court will look at if you are partially responsible for your injuries.
If you are 50% or more responsible, you won’t recover any damages in your case. If you are 0% to 49% at fault you will recover, minus the % you are found responsible.
While no one can predict what the court will determine, an experienced attorney can help you evaluate your case. This will help you determine if you should pursue recovery.
