FAQ0003 Personal Injury

By In On November 3, 2017

What is a personal injury?
The term personal injury is typically defined as an injury to ones mind, body, or emotions. In other words, its an injury to the person, as opposed to an injury to property. When property is harmed in conjunction with the personal injury, compensating for that harmed property becomes part of the personal injury lawsuit.


How does personal injury law compensate victims?
In a typical personal injury lawsuit, two types of damages are awarded – compensatory damages and punitive damages. Each state has its own individual laws that dictate how these damages are handled. Our Texas personal injury attorneys can help you understand your compensation rights.

Do I have a personal injury case?
Not all injuries result in a personal injury case. For those that do, every personal injury case is different. Whether or not you have a personal injury case depends upon the facts of your situation and usually only an attorney can tell you if you have a viable case. But keep in mind that because of the statute of limitations, time is of the essence.
