The term personal injury can be somewhat confusing. It basically relates to injuries caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another. In a situation where a serious injury has occurred, the injured person may have the right to pursue legal action against all liable parties under Texas Law.

Personal Injury Claims
A personal injury claim involves an injured person (the plaintiff) seeking compensation from the person or entity that caused the injury (the defendant). This often times involves negotiation with the defendant’s insurance company.
A personal injury claim involves evaluation of the injury and damages suffered as well as the conduct of the defendant. Many factors impact the manner in which a personal injury claim proceeds including the severity of the injuries, the degree of fault of the defendant and the availability of insurance coverage or other sources of compensation.
A personal injury claim may arise under a variety of circumstances, including being injured by a ride at an Amusement Park, Child Care facility, Elevator or Escalator, Construction accident, Dog bite, drunk driver, fire or explosion, defective product, and/or a stair or porch collapse. A claim may also develop out of an assault or rape, or if you were injured while hit while walking as a pedestrian by a truck or car. If someone was hurt due to the negligence or intentional act of another, this person may suffer injuries to their brain, broken bones, burns, suffer paralysis or quadriplegia injuries that will change their lives forever.
Is a Settlement a Good Choice?
Many personal injury claims in North Texas are resolved without filing a lawsuit. Materials including the medical records and bills, evidence of wages lost, comparable verdicts or settlements and expert reports (if needed) are typically sent to the defendant’s insurer with a demand for payment. The settlement of a claim saves both sides from the risks and costs of litigation. If the plaintiff and defendant cannot agree on a settlement amount, litigation of the claim will be necessary which will require filing a Petition or lawsuit against the defendant who caused the accident and injuries.
