Texas Personal Injury Law
A personal injury claim exists when a person has suffered harm due to the negligence, recklessness, or wrongful acts of another. Victims may recover both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages generally include medical expenses for hospital stays and doctors appointments, past and future lost wages, and any other monetary expenses the person incurred as a result of the injury. Non-economic damages generally include compensation for pain and suffering, disability, and emotional distress.
Victims of accidents may suffer injuries that are catastrophic, life changing, or debilitating. Common types of catastrophic injuries include:
- Spinal cord injury (SCI)
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Burn Injuries
- Loss of limbs
It is essential that victims suffering catastrophic injuries are represented by lawyers who have a comprehensive understanding of the nature, causes, and characteristics of their injuries, which can require detailed understanding of technical medical terms and concepts. Our personal injury litigators have extensive experience with these cases, giving them the necessary expertise to advise and represent clients in connection with even the most complex personal injury matters.
Attorneys at Fisher, Boyd, Johnson & Huguenard, LLP handle wrongful death claims on behalf of grieving families throughout Texas and across the country, including those who have lost a loved one in an auto accident, trucking accident, airplane crash, construction accident, oil drilling accident, or other tragic event. We understand that the death of a loved one takes a great toll on survivors, especially when the loss occurs suddenly. The Texas Wrongful Death Act and similar laws in many other states provide families a means to seek restitution when a loved one's death was caused by the negligence, wrongful act, or carelessness of another party. Recoverable damages in wrongful death suits can include:
- Medical and funeral expenses
- Lost wages and benefits
- Compensation for pain, suffering, and mental anguish
- Loss of companionship, support, and care
- Punitive damages
In Texas, wrongful death cases can encompass both state and federal law, making these lawsuits especially complex and compounding an already difficult situation. When assisting clients with wrongful death claims, our attorneys strive to let families focus on their emotional recovery while we handle all aspects of the case, from investigating the accident to easing the stress of trial.
