How We Prove Negligence in Your Personal Injury Case

A successful personal injury lawsuit requires the plaintiff to demonstrate that the defendant’s negligence caused the accident that injured them. 

In Texas, the law defines negligence as an individual’s failure to provide an appropriate level of care. From slip-and-fall accidents to car crashes, the standard for establishing negligence is the same. 

We can help argue that:

  1. The defendant was responsible for providing a level of care that would keep you safe
  2. The defendant failed to provide appropriate care
  3. The defendant’s failure caused your accident
  4. You suffered injuries in the accident

When you retain our personal injury law firm in Edinburg, we can gather evidence to support these four crucial points. We can obtain police and medical reports, consult forensic experts, and examine relevant laws to build the strongest case possible. 

Modified Comparative Negligence in Texas

There are many instances where negligence is not clear cut. A defendant and plaintiff could share responsibility for an accident. When this is the case, a judge will examine the evidence and assign fault in percentages. If your responsibility amounts to 50% or less, you can sue for damages. 

It is important to know that your percentage of blame limits the amount you can receive. For example, if you are 25% at fault in the accident, you may only pursue 75% of the total possible compensation. 

Texas’s Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Cases

Texas law allows you two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. Failing to file a claim by this deadline generally disqualifies you from receiving damages. If you have been hurt in an accident, do not wait. Seek compensation as soon as possible by retaining the help of our Edinburg personal injury attorney today. 

Damages You Can Recover for Your Injuries

For car, truck, or slip-and-fall accidents, we can help you recover compensation for the following:

  • Medical expenses for ambulance rides, surgeries, visits to a care provider, medications, physical therapy, and more
  • Wages you lost because you could not go to work or because your injuries limited your ability to work
  • Damage to your car or other personal property
  • Decreases in quality or enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, emotional duress, anxiety, and other non-economic consequences

When you hire The Ricky Rod Law Group, we will discuss the severity of your injuries and determine their economic and non-economic costs. Then, we will work aggressively to hold the responsible parties accountable and see that you get what is fair.
