Injuries can make life very difficult. The greater the injury, the greater the challenges a person faces. Victims of serious injury experience a great deal of pain and financial setbacks due to medical costs and lost time at work. Sadly, many injuries that people suffer are due to the negligence of another person, meaning that their suffering is someone else’s fault.
At Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law, we believe that you shouldn’t have to shoulder the costs for someone else’s mistakes. We also believe that everyone deserves equal access to our legal system. Justice shouldn’t depend on your ability to pay huge legal fees. Our firm represents clients in personal injury cases on a No Fee Guarantee, which means that if you don’t get paid, you don’t have to pay us.
A key part of personal injury cases is the concept of negligence. Negligence is when someone acts carelessly or without regard to the safety of others. The drunk driver who hits a pedestrian is negligent in their role as a driver. A doctor who ignores clear warning signs that a patient is seriously ill is negligent in their role in providing adequate healthcare. Negligence comes in many forms, and it is the basis for most personal injury claims.
If you’ve been hurt and you seek the assistance of a lawyer in a personal injury case, it will not be up to you to determine who was acting negligently. Your personal injury attorney will investigate your case, determine who was negligent and fight on your behalf to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
How Personal Injuries Happen?
People suffer injuries in several different ways. When an injury is minor and no one is at fault, the injured person recovers and goes about their life. It’s when a person suffers a serious, costly injury through the fault of someone else that they typically look at their legal options. Many of these serious injuries are suffered in:
- Vehicle accident cases
- Workplace accident cases
- Medical malpractice cases
- Consumer product liability cases.
Examples of the Most Serious Injuries
People filing personal injury claims have typically suffered some of the most painful, serious injuries imaginable. Some of the most common injuries in these types of cases include:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Organ damage
- Multiple broken bones
- Loss of limbs
- Wrongful death
How an Injury Impacts a Victim – and Why a Personal Claim Can Help
While injuries are often painful and cause a great deal of physical and emotional suffering, the impact of that injury isn’t just limited to physical and mental harm. Injuries are expensive. They can lead to extensive medical treatment, which can quickly become a financial burden. They can also lead to significant time lost at work and, in some cases, they can limit a person’s ability to earn income. The loss of wages makes paying medical bills and other costs of living even more challenging for an injured person.
These costs are just a few of the reasons that people file personal injury claims. A claim won’t take away someone’s pain, but it will help them avoid the terrible financial consequences that follow in the wake of a major injury. By filing a claim, victims can earn compensation that helps them and their families cope with the fallout of a serious accident.
Knowing the Details of Your Personal Injury Case
When someone is considering filing a claim, they often want to know certain details about the process. If you’ve suffered a personal injury, you might be asking yourself how much your claim is worth or how long the process will last. The truth is that every case is different. Some claims can result in large sums, while others might have smaller payments. Some cases could be resolved in weeks, while others can take several months, or even longer.
A qualified, experienced personal injury attorney will need to hear the facts of a case before giving a client an estimate about the value and time-frame of a claim. To help potential clients better understand the process and to discuss the details of their case, we offer free consultations to those who are considering filing a claim. These consultations allow you the opportunity to make sure you are comfortable with our attorneys, and they allow us the opportunity to look at the chances of a successful claim.
Demystifying the Personal Injury Process
One moment you’re crossing an intersection. The next moment – boom – you’ve been sideswiped by a vehicle racing to beat the light. You sit there in shock, injured and shaken. It’s the same hot Texas morning. The radio continues playing the same song. But your reality has changed dramatically.
Unfortunately, that single moment has set into motion a series of events that could take months to unfold. You’re an accident victim. It’s possible that you will have to fight to get compensation for your hospital bills, pain and suffering, and lost income.
