If you were injured while on the property of another individual, they could be held responsible for your injuries under premises liability law. Property owners owe people on their property a certain duty of care and if they are negligent in ensuring that their premises are safe, an experienced attorney will hold them accountable for the harm they have caused and ensure you receive maximum compensation.
A motor vehicle accident can cause significant injuries, and property damage, and may leave you out of work for weeks or months. An experienced attorney will investigate an auto accident, with the help of private investigators and accident reconstruction experts to prove liability and help you receive compensation for your damages.
Hit-and-run accidents can be very complex if the accident victim was unable to write down the other vehicle’s license plate number or their attorney was not able to locate the driver. However, an attorney can still help you receive compensation for your damages by filing a claim through your own insurance company.
Trucking accidents are often fatal or involve devastating injuries for occupants of passenger vehicles. A skilled truck accident lawyer will be familiar with state and federal trucking laws, can work with experts to conduct an in-depth investigation, and explore every avenue of compensation. Often, there are multiple liable parties in truck accident cases, such as the truck driver, trucking company, company responsible for maintaining the semi-trucks, company responsible for loading the truck’s cargo, and more. A skilled accident lawyer at the Amaro Law Firm will work tirelessly to build the strongest claim possible to help you receive fair compensation for losses suffered.
If you lost a loved one due to the negligence of another individual, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. At our personal injury law firm, we understand that no amount of money will ever be able to make up for the loss of a loved one; however, it is still important to hold the guilty party responsible for their actions so that the same tragedy does not affect anyone else. If a loved one was killed in a car accident, by a dangerous drug, or on the premises of another person, the guilty party should be held accountable for what they have done. An attorney from our firm can help you file a wrongful death lawsuit to receive compensation for your pain and suffering, funeral arrangements, burial costs, and lost income. We know that filing a wrongful death lawsuit will not make the situation any easier, but it could bring a sense of justice and closure.
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 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 their injury, they are barred from bringing a lawsuit in court.
After a Pasadena 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.
After carefully reviewing evidence like the police report (if available), accident scene pictures and witness accounts, a Pasadena personal injury lawyer can figure out 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.
In the wake of a serious accident or other incidents which result 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 do not have to bear the added financial burden which can result. 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.
