Common Types of Personal Injury Cases in Houston, TX

Oftentimes, it is hard to tell when to reach out to a legal team about your injury. How do you know if your situation qualifies for legal representation? As Houston personal injury lawyers we see that time and time again. The best answer is to call our personal injury team for a free consultation. 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 is intended to show the most common types of personal injuries we see in Houston, and is not a complete list.

Car Accidents

Car accidents frequently happen due to factors such as congested streets, aggressive driving, or negligent drivers. A split second of distraction or lack of attention to safety can result in serious injury and major damage to vehicles. After an accident, you might find yourself in pain, dealing with medical bills and other financial challenges. Many people don’t know what to do, and the choices can be overwhelming. You deserve the best accident lawyer on your side during this time who will fight for you and help guide you through the process.

Pedestrian Accidents

Walking around town may seem safe, but if you’re out for a walk at the same time as a negligent motorist, the consequences could be deadly. A pedestrian has no protection against a vehicle that weighs thousands of pounds, which is why pedestrians tend to suffer extremely painful and debilitating injuries. These injuries often require extensive (and very expensive) medical treatment. It can take weeks – or even months – to get back on your feet. Even then, you might not have fully recovered. You may even be faced with a lifelong disability because you got hit by a car.

If someone else was careless and caused you to get hurt, they should also be responsible for the consequences of their negligence, as well. While you may be entitled to compensation, getting the settlement you deserve can still be a challenge. Insurance companies will fight you every step of the way.

Motorcycle Accidents

For most motorcyclists, there is hardly ever such a thing as a minor traffic accident. The same thing that makes riding a motorcycle so exhilarating also makes accidents so dangerous—motorcyclists are completely exposed. Even when motorcyclists follow the appropriate safety protocols, such as wearing helmets and proper safety gear, riders have little protection when colliding with a motor vehicle. In low-speed motorcycle crashes, riders are frequently thrown off their bikes, causing serious injuries such as broken bones, spinal injuries, and head injuries. When a motorcyclist is involved in a high-speed accident with another vehicle, the results are tragic and often prove deadly.

If you lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation. To learn more about wrongful death claims, or if you were injured in a motorcycle accident, contact our firm to speak with an experienced accident attorney today.

18-Wheeler Accidents

18-wheeler truck accidents can result in life-change severe injuries or death. Weighing up to 3,000 pounds, passenger vehicles stand no chance when they’re involved with a commercial vehicle that can weigh up to 80,000 pounds.

If you suffered severe injuries in a collision involving a commercial vehicle, our truck accident lawyers can help you pursue maximum compensation for your damages.

Wrongful Death

If you lost a loved one due to the negligence of another, you may be entitled to damages that will compensate you for funeral and burial costs, lost earning capacity, mental pain and anguish, loss of companionship, and more.

While compensation will never make up for your tragic loss, it can give you and your family time to heal and ensure you’re not struggling financially, due to the untimely loss of a family member.

In Texas, claims for wrongful death can be filed by:
• Surviving spouse
• Children
• Parents
• An adopted child
• Adoptive parents
At the Amaro Law Firm, we know how difficult it can be to even think of filing a claim during such a challenging time. When you hire one of our attorneys, we will take the burden off your shoulders and handle every aspect of your case, allowing you to focus on your family.

To learn how we can help guide you through this stressful time, contact our office today to schedule a free consultation with a wrongful death attorney.

Ways an Injury Attorney Can Help

An Accident Attorney Can Identify All the Liable Parties

After carefully reviewing evidence like the accident report (if available), accident scene pictures and witness accounts, a Houston personal injury lawyer​ can identify each and every party who is responsible for causing the accident.

This can be critical when multiple parties share liability. By uncovering all liable parties, a personal injury lawyer can be pivotal to helping you safeguard the value of your claim and setting it up for any possible compensation available.

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Texas

Filing a lawsuit is not always straightforward. It can 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 out. 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 the date of the accident, they are barred from bringing a lawsuit in court. After a Houston 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.

Personal Injury Attorneys Fighting for Compensation and Just Resolutions

In the wake of a serious accident or another incident that results in injury, you could be entitled to compensation. We realize that monetary compensation will in no way make up for the trauma and fear that is caused by an accident, yet it is still important that you hold the guilty individual accountable for what they have done. If you do not, the same incident could happen to another victim.Another reason it is important to file a personal injury claim is so that you can be compensated for your financial losses, due to the injuries you sustained in the accident.

You can receive a settlement or the judge can order that you are reimbursed for any medical treatment you already received. Not only that but the amount of medical care you will need in the future can be determined and included in the award. If you had to take time off of work, lost wages can also be compensated for. Our willingness to go to trial

contributes not only to the negotiation process but allows us to exploit all avenues available for the pursuit of justice for our clients. The background some of our attorneys have in defending insurance companies also provides us with invaluable insight into how these companies operate as they endeavor to settle with as small a payout as possible. We know exactly how to counteract their tactics and do so aggressively.As proud members of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, Houston Trial Lawyers Association, and the American Association for Justice, we work zealously to protect the rights of our clients.

The team of lawyers at our firm works on a contingency fee basis. This means we will not charge a fee if we do not recover a settlement or award on your behalf and also offer a free case evaluation and consultation. With no upfront costs, accident victims can seek the legal advice and guidance they need to pursue the compensation they deserve.
