Other Personal Injury Law
A personal injury describes an instance in which someone is physically or emotionally injured, or when his or her personal property is damaged. When this happens because of the negligence of another, you are entitled to seek compensation for your damages. James Walker is an experienced accident lawyer that can help you recover that compensation. He represents clients in all types of accidents in the Houston area.
If you’ve been hurt or your property has been damaged, laws covering personal injury allow you to collect money due to someone else’s carelessness, negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions. Personal injury law is also called tort law.
Texas Negligence Laws
Personal injury law hinges on the legal concept of negligence, or a failure to meet a certain duty of care for a given situation. Every state has unique laws regarding negligence. Texas has several statues under Texas Civ. Prac. & Rem. 33.001 that an individual should know if filing a claim. Those who attempt to file lawsuits without a firm understanding of their states’ negligence laws could end up paying legal fees for a lost case or even face countersuits from defendants.
Proving negligence remains the same regardless of a state’s negligence laws. A plaintiff must be able to prove duty, breach, causation, and actual harm to succeed in a personal injury claim. However, varying negligence laws in states will have an impact on the results of their lawsuits. Texas follows a modified comparative negligence law.

This is the first question that many people ask after being injured in an accident. Just because you got hurt does not mean you have a case. The personal injury case is much like a stool, it must have three strong legs to stand. In a personal injury context those legs are, liability, damages and ability to pay. All three are necessary for a satisfactory civil result from an accident.
You should always contact an accident attorney as soon as possible if you
believe that another party may be at fault for the accident. This is ideal for one, to counsel the injured party on their right. However, it is critical to preserving evidence in the case. You should keep in mind that the Statute of Limitation in Texas varies for certain types of accidents. For instance, in Texas, an auto accident involving a third party is generally governed by the 2-year Statute of Limitation. This means a lawsuit must be on file and the offending party served with the lawsuit no later than two years from the date of your accident. There are exceptions to this general rule that may shorten or lengthen the period depending on the facts.
If you miss that 2 year deadline, your right to compensation may be forever lost. There are certain Statutes of Repose which may also affect some claims such as injuries caused by older products. When in doubt, contact an attorney of your choosing as soon as possible.

One of the methods that insurance companies use to investigate car accidents is a recorded statement. As the words suggest, the conversation is usually recorded over the telephone or sometimes the car accident insurance company will attempt to go to your home for an in-person statement with you.
In a recorded statement, you will probably be asked questions about the accident, your injuries, private medical information, date of birth and even your social security number. Remember, the insurance company is not looking out for your best interest and anything you say will likely be used against you later on. This is why it is so important that you have legal representation.
