When a person’s job, financial status, livelihood, body, or family has been affected, there is nothing to undo the pain that has been done. However, when you engage in the legal process, hire a personal injury attorney, speak up, and hold the guilty or negligent party accountable, you can have parts of those lost pieces returned to you. Because there are so many kinds of damage people can suffer, the following list of types of personal injuries below is by no means a comprehensive list.

Potential causes for personal injuries are everywhere. We put together a list of some of the causes of injuries that we work with. We hope this can help you know if your case qualifies, but remember this is not a full list. The best way to know this is to call our team for a free consultation.

Filing a lawsuit is not always straightforward. It could be complicated, and in some cases, a long-term process. The first step, in any case, is to assess whether the statute of limitations has run. In Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years under Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code §16.003. This means that if a plaintiff tries to file their case two years after their injury, they are barred from bringing a lawsuit in court.
After an Austin personal injury lawyer determines the statute of limitations, they would initiate the pleadings phase by filing a summons and complaint, alleging the facts of the case. Both parties would then assert their claims. If the case makes it past the pleadings phase, it goes to discovery, where each party develops their case for trial. If the case makes it through discovery, it goes to trial, very few cases ever do. At trial, the jury renders a decision, which could be appealed by either party.
Seeking personal injury relief could be challenging. There are procedures and concepts at play that could be overwhelming to take on without professional legal assistance. An Austin personal injury lawyer could provide guidance and support for your personal injury case. They could be there from start to finish. They could help negotiate with the insurance companies and take on your case at trial. To get started on a case, call now and schedule a free initial consultation.
