Spring TX Personal Injury Lawyer

Experiencing any kind of injury can be detrimental, but even more so if it was caused by someone or something else. Injuries may not only leave you facing physical challenges, but perhaps financial distress as well.

If you’ve been injured, Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law is ready to hear your story and do all that we can to try to help you and your family.

What Is a “Personal Injury?”

Personal injury law focuses on cases arising from an individual suffering an injury or harm due to another’s negligent or intentional actions. There are many kinds of instances giving rise to personal injury actions, but the most common typically involve car crashes, on-the-job injuries, or slip-and-falls.

If you’ve suffered an injury at the hands of another or after the use of a product, you may be eligible to recover financially. Do not hesitate to discuss your case with an experienced Spring personal injury attorney.

There are Many Different Types of Personal Injury Claims

“Personal injury” is very broad, encompassing many different types of cases. Our personal injury lawyers handle a multitude of personal injury claims, including:

  • Car/truck/motorcycle accidents
  • Spinal injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Work Injuries
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Medical malpractice
  • Defective devices
  • Product liability
  • Prescription drug injury
  • Wrongful death.

After suffering an injury, our attorneys look forward to helping you understand your rights. At Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law, we have experience with handling cases in Spring. We are also ready to begin working on your behalf.

We understand the Spring area. The former home of the Goodyear Blimp and future home of energy giant ExxonMobil began as a tiny Orcoquiza village. Supposedly, Bonnie and Clyde robbed the Old Town Spring Bank, which still has bullet holes in it. Old Town Spring is now one of the most popular tourist attractions in the region. Six Flags Hurricane Harbor also attracts many visitors to the area every summer.

All of these benefits, along with the town’s solid economy and good schools, explain the significant population growth in Spring. The area’s population has almost doubled since 1990, and as ExxonMobil transitions employees from Irving (TX) and Virginia, more and more families will arrive. With so many more people in the area, the chances of someone else causing an injury for you because of their negligent behavior will increase.

Establishing the Elements for Your Personal Injury Case

If you’ve been injured, one of the very first things you may be wondering is whether you have a claim for personal injury. To be able to receive compensation from a personal injury claim, you must first establish the elements for negligence.

To determine whether your case involves negligence, you must satisfy all of the following elements:

  • The defendant owed you a duty of care.
  • The defendant breached this duty of care.
  • The breach was the cause of your accident.
  • You suffered damages.

So, for example, if you were injured after a truck driver negligently hit you, you would need to establish the above elements. The truck driver owed you a duty of care to drive carefully and prudently; he breached this duty by engaging in distracted driving; his actions led to your accident; and you suffered injuries. In this situation, you could successfully establish negligence and proceed with your claim for personal injury.

Determining negligence is one of the most important parts of your case. Your Spring personal injury attorney will thoroughly investigate and build your case to help get you on the path to financial recovery.

Frequently Asked Personal Injury Questions

Is There Anything I Should Do to Help My Case?

Although you may not realize it, many things can have a negative or positive impact on your case. If you wish to help your case, you can:

  • Seek medical care
  • Follow all medical instructions and advice
  • Document your injuries
  • Track all expenses related to your injuries.

It is also imperative that you consult with a personal injury lawyer experienced in Harris County. Your attorney will know how to proceed with your case in an effort to get you a favorable outcome.

Do I Really Need a Personal Injury Attorney?

While you are not legally required to have a personal injury lawyer represent you, it is in your best interests to seek legal help. In many instances, individuals that wish to handle their claims completely on their own may end up mishandling their case or ultimately agree to receive an unfair settlement. An experienced Spring personal injury lawyer is an invaluable ally.

What Kind of Compensation Can I Receive for My Injuries?

Depending on the details of your case, you may be eligible to collect damages. Damages in Texas are typically separated into three categories: economic, non-economic, and punitive.

Economic damages are quantifiable damages representing tangible losses. These can include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation
  • Lost wages.

Non-economic damages represent the intangible losses you’ve suffered. These losses can be a bit more difficult to quantify. They include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental and emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life.

Punitive damages are special damages. These particular damages may be assessed when the defendant’s extremely negligent or reckless behavior causes your injuries. Punitive damages serve to punish and deter.

Damages can be challenging to calculate, as you may be unaware of what you are actually owed. Fortunately, your personal injury lawyer will review your case to determine how much your case is worth.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in Spring?

Many individuals in need of attorneys fail to seek legal aid for fear of high costs. Generally, for personal injury claims, attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, so there are no upfront costs. After your case concludes, your attorney will take a percentage of your recovery, eliminating the worry of legal expenses. This way, you can get the legal help you need.

How Much Time Do I Have to File My Personal Injury Lawsuit?

The statute of limitations governs the amount of time people have to file injury actions in court. Victims need time to build their case, and tortfeasors (negligent parties) should not have to look over their shoulders indefinitely. So, TX C.P.R. §16.003 establishes a two-year statute of limitations for most injury claims. *Always speak directly to an attorney for the exact deadlines that apply to your potential claim(s).

Twenty-four months sounds like a long time. But many personal injuries, such as serious illnesses due to toxic exposure, do not surface immediately. Additionally, as mentioned, most Spring personal injury lawyers do not immediately run to the courthouse and file claims. Pre-suit, out-of-court settlements are much faster and much better for victims.

If you do not file your claim within the applicable deadlines, you may lose your right to financial compensation. So, in order for your attorney to have the most time to prepare your legal case, it is best to act as quickly as possible to avoid running out of time.
