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 help you.
What Is a “Personal Injury?”
Criminal cases punish defendants for what they have done. Personal injury claims require people to take responsibility for their mistakes. We all make mistakes, and we must all accept the consequences of those mistakes. If Dennis the Menace accidentally breaks Mr. Wilson’s window, he (or his family) must pay to replace the window. Personal injury cases in Texas follow this same general principle, but as outlined below, personal injury claims are more complex.
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 Texas City 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, it is best to discuss your case with one of our attorneys. At Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law, we have experience with handling cases in Texas City. We are ready to begin working on your behalf.
We understand the Texas City area. Like many communities in Greater Houston, Texas City was originally built on energy production. Today, it is still one of the most important petrochemical refining and manufacturing centers in Southeast Texas, and it also has one of the busiest deep-water ports in the world.
Texas City has seen lots of adversity over the years. A huge explosion in 1947 devastated the town, and there was another major industrial accident in 2005. Three years later, the community barely survived Hurricane Ike.
Despite all this adversity, Texas City has grown steadily over the years. This diverse community is now the third-largest city in Galveston County. 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 Texas City personal injury attorney will thoroughly investigate and build your case to help get you on the path to financial recovery.
