Shared Negligence Liability in Texas
Texas is a state where individuals may share in the responsibility for an accident. According to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 33.013, a party’s damage amount will be proportionately reduced by the amount they are liable, as long as it is under 51%. For example, if a person is found to have received $100,000 in damages, but they were deemed to be 10% at fault, then they would only be able to keep $90,000.
This means that whether you were partially at fault for your brain injury or not, there still may be a legal avenue to collect damages for your suffering in Texas.

How A Brain Injury Lawyer Could Help You
The brain controls many functions of the body and damage to one small area of the brain can deprive you of a full life experience. Those who are eventually able to resume an average life after suffering a brain injury usually must undergo months of treatment with the oversight of many health care professionals.
A person with a brain injury might exhibit sudden mood changes, depression, and anxiety, according to the CDC. They may struggle to follow and participate with conversations.
However, for less clear cases, a TBI can be difficult to diagnose if there are milder symptoms.
The CDC states that danger signs of a TBI can include:
- Any unusual behavior
- Difficulty concentrating or focusing
- Problems remembering new information
- Persistent pain or headache that gets worse
- Chronic crying in a baby or child
These early warning signs can indicate more serious potential problems to come. Later-stage complications of untreated brain injuries can include Alzheimer’s Disease, stroke, and increased mortality. This increased risk of suffering from more serious conditions is the main reason to get a professional medical opinion if you suspect you received a TBI.
Sources of traumatic brain injuries can be wide-ranging, including:
- Vehicle collisions
- Workplace accidents
- Slips and falls
- Assault and battery
- Oxygen deprivation
No matter the cause of your brain injury, our office can help you discern the cause, and make sense of who would be the correct party to pursue. The at-fault party may have an insurer or employer who may ultimately be liable for paying for your damages.
Our law office is adept in collecting evidence that may be at risk of being destroyed in the field. We review the following:
- Photos of the scene of the accident
- Photos of debris patterns
- Cell phone data
- Company logbooks
- Field sobriety reports
- Medical records for confirmation
- Police report to ensure accuracy
- Coordinating witness’s testimony
Defense attorneys are keen at asking confusing questions and spreading that confusion to you when you are trying to explain your story on the witness stand. By preparing you adequately for depositions and trial, our law firm ensures that you will be comfortable on the witness stand to convey your side of the accident.

Your Time is Limited to Hold the At-Fault Party Liable for Your Injuries
Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003 states that individuals injured in Texas only have two years to file a lawsuit for personal injury damages. The claims process can take a long time to unfold as well, and many aspects of the settlement claim process are required to occur before a personal injury lawsuit is filed.
While the above items are urgent and sometimes expensive to take care of, you also have injuries to deal with. Medical attention is vital in claims for personal injury. If you are concerned that you could have a TBI, our law office wants to hear from you. We work on a contingency basis for our clients, so you do not have to cover any out of pocket expenses as the lawsuit continues.
Everything you tell your Fort Worth brain injuries lawyer is privileged information and cannot be shared with outside parties.
