What Damages Can an Injured Person be Compensated for in Texas?
At Lopez Law Firm, we understand the difficulty that comes with filing a personal injury claim. Therefore, our attorneys are dedicated to helping our clients get the appropriate compensation for their damages. As part of this commitment, we want to make sure everyone knows what types of financial losses they may be able to recover under Texas law.
One of the most common types of losses covered by personal injury claims is medical costs. This includes any expenses that you incur due to medical treatment as a result of the injury. This can include hospital stays and doctor visits, medications and prescriptions, physical therapy, assistive devices or tools, and other medical needs related to your recovery.
Lost Wages & Promotions
If your injury prevents you from working or results in missed time at work or lost promotions, you may be able to recover these wages from your claim. This includes reimbursement for income that you would have earned if not for the accident, as well as any promotions or opportunities that you were prevented from taking on because of your injuries.
Pain & Suffering
Pain and suffering refers to both physical pain caused by an injury as well as emotional/psychological pain associated with it. Victims of personal injury can seek compensation for mental anguish or distress suffered due to their injuries, including loss of enjoyment of life activities and disability due to the trauma incurred during the incident.
In addition to medical costs or lost wages, victims may also be eligible for compensation for any property damage resulting from the incident. Depending on the situation, this could include repairs or replacements necessary due to broken items caused by the accident – such as furniture damaged during a slip-and-fall – or payments to cover rental car costs while yours is out of commission after an auto accident.
At Lopez Law Firm, our experienced team will do everything in their power to ensure that our clients get the maximum amount available based on their individual situation. Our priority is making sure our clients’ interests are represented throughout every step of the legal process so they can focus on recovering – not worrying about how they’ll pay their bills after an unexpected incident.
