How Do I Know Whether I Have a Personal Injury Case?

If you are unsure whether you have a legitimate personal injury claim in Texas, an experienced personal injury attorney at Hanna Allen, PLLC will be happy to set up a free consultation to hear your story and discuss the circumstances of your accident. In order to meet the requirements for a personal injury claim, we must be able to prove your case has the following four elements:

  • The plaintiff (you) has suffered losses: injuries, pain, property damage, bills, and expenses.
  • That this breach of the duty of care led directly to the defendant’s injuries and losses.
  • That there existed a certain duty of care owed by the defendant to the plaintiff. For example, every driver is obligated to drive safely and obey traffic laws. Oil companies owe certain duties of care to their employees, like maintaining oilfield equipment and providing proper training.
  • That the duty of care was breached by the defendant. For a driver, this may be speeding or making the decision to drive while intoxicated. For an oil company, failing to maintain equipment or provide proper training is a breach of their duty of care to their workers.

  • How will I pay my bills after an accident?

    When you’ve been in an accident through no fault of your own, the aftermath can be emotionally traumatic, physically painful, and financially catastrophic. You still have your normal household bills in addition to mounting medical expenses. If you are unable to work due to your injuries, you may have no way to pay this debt — putting your and your family’s home and entire future into question. 

  • What damages will a personal injury lawyer help me win?

    In the state of Texas, damages for personal injury cases fall into two main categories: “Special” and “General.”

    Special damages are the easiest to determine because they are already associated with a concrete dollar amount. They include compensation for:

    -Hospital and other medical bills, including medication, medical devices, therapy and rehab
    -Expected future medical costs

  • How much is my case worth?

    Every personal injury claim is different. Your injuries may be moderate or life altering. They may be patched up in a day or you may end up spending weeks in the hospital. You may go back to work quickly or be permanently disabled and unable to return. And, of course, how much you are able to receive in lost wages or lost earning capacity depends on your income before your accident. 
    A West Texas personal injury lawyer at the Hanna Allen, PLLC will be happy to sit down with you and discuss the facts of your particular case. Whatever the circumstances, our goal is to make sure you receive the maximum possible compensation for your injuries and losses. You can trust us to not leave anything on the table. Call 432-606-3734 to schedule a free consultation.

  • What if I can't go back to work?

    If you are unable to return to your job and collect that all-important paycheck, we will include that financial loss in your personal injury claim. If you need time off to recover but are able to return to your previous employment at your previous salary, we will request compensation for the total amount of your lost wages. If your injuries are so severe that you will not be able to return, we will seek compensation for loss of earning capacity, covering your full, long-term expected losses.

  • What if my loved one was killed in an accident?

    If you lost a close family member in an accident and someone else is at fault, we can help you file a wrongful death lawsuit. A wrongful death lawsuit is similar to a personal injury claim, but it’s initiated by the victim’s survivors. 

    -In order to file a wrongful death case, the plaintiff must be a spouse, parent, or child (adult or minor). Grandparents, siblings, and other relatives are not eligible. 

  • What is comparative negligence?

    Texas is a comparative negligence state. This means that you, the plaintiff, may be found to be partially responsible for the incident that caused your injuries, and that your compensation will be reduced by that percentage as a result. But as long as the defendant is deemed to be more than 50% at fault, you may receive damages. 

  • Does Texas have a statute of limitations?

    In the state of Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years. This means that you have two years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. Of course, this doesn’t mean you should wait a couple of years before calling a West Texas personal injury attorney at the Hanna Allen, PLLC; it’s important to contact us well before the deadline so we can prepare your claim.

We will get you the compensation you deserve
