Seeking Compensation Based on Your Carrollton Injury Accident
If you were hurt in Carrollton and believe someone else is to blame for the accident or incident, you may have a personal injury case. When you can show that another party acted negligently, you can hold them legally responsible.
We help clients get justice by pursuing compensation based on the expenses and losses they incurred due to their injuries. This generally occurs either through an insurance claim and settlement or a personal injury lawsuit in civil court.
The recoverable damages in these cases differ based on the damages the victim suffered and their related costs. Some common examples include:
- Pain and suffering and emotional distress
- Other non-economic losses
- Medical bills and future medical treatment and care costs
- Lost wages if they missed work
- Diminished earning capacity if they cannot go back to work
- Property damages
- Miscellaneous related expenses and losses
Wrongful Death Actions in Texas
Under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 71.002(b), families can take legal action to hold an at-fault party responsible for their loved one’s death if they pass away from their injuries. These cases follow different rules and have different recoverable damages than personal injury cases.
We represent families in wrongful death claims in Carrollton and can review your options with you for free today.

Understanding Personal Injury Law and How It Works in Texas
At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our attorneys are personal injury lawyers who practice this area of law every day. We represent clients who were hurt due to someone else’s negligence in a wide variety of ways. Some of our most common practice areas include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Catastrophic injuries and brain injuries
- Slip and falls and other fall incidents
- Other premises liability injuries
- Product liability injuries
- Oilfield accidents
- Construction site injuries
- Dog bites
While some personal injuries occur because of a person’s willful actions, most are based on negligence. That is, the at-fault party acted in a careless or reckless way and caused the incident. To hold them legally liable, we need to show all four elements of negligence occurred. The necessary evidence depends on the type of accident and what is available. Our attorneys know what to look for and how to document fault and liability.
Some types of evidence we may be able to use to prove a personal injury case includes:
- Police or accident reports
- Video of the incident
- Witness interviews
- Expert statements
- Relevant medical records
- Documentation of injuries and damages
What to Expect From Our Team
Our clients count on our team to handle all aspects of their civil cases from beginning to end. During this time, they can focus on healing and getting back to their normal activities as much as possible. They know we are here to:
- Protect their rights
- Take care of all communication with the insurance companies and others
- Prepare and file all necessary paperwork
- Value their claim accurately and appropriately
- Negotiate for a fair settlement with the insurance company
- File a complaint with the appropriate civil court if necessary
- Represent their best interests
- Keep them updated on the process of the case
- Answer any questions as they arise
We settle most cases through an agreement with the insurance carrier representing the at-fault party. Their liability insurance coverage pays out up to policy limits to cover our client’s damages. We present evidence on the client’s behalf and demand fair compensation. After negotiations, we all agree on a settlement amount.
However, we sometimes need to file a lawsuit to recover damages. If the circumstances of your case indicate this may be necessary or if we cannot convince the insurer to increase their offer to a fair level, we will discuss this possibility with you.
