Damages You Could Recover in a Personal Injury Case
To determine the amount of compensation you could recover in a personal injury case, our attorneys will review your damages. Damages refer to the compensation a court will order the other party to pay if the injury was caused by their negligence. Damages in a personal injury case include:
- Medical expenses: Emergency medical services, hospitalizations, medications, surgeries, diagnostic testing, doctor’s appointments, rehabilitation services such as occupational therapy or physical therapy, and ambulance services.
- Future medical expenses: The projected costs of medical expenses in the future after your case has been settled.
- Lost earnings: The earnings you lost if you had to be out of work while you recovered from your injuries.
- Lost future earnings: The projected earnings you will lose if you have to be out of work in the future after your case has settled. If you are unable to return to work at all, you could be compensated for the lost income, retirement benefits, and medical benefits.
- Property loss or replacement: The costs to repair or replace any of your property that was damaged during the incident that caused your injuries.
- Pain and suffering: You could recover compensation for the pain, discomfort, anguish, or inconvenience you endured because of your injuries.
- Emotional distress: You could recover compensation if your injuries caused you to endure negative psychological impacts.
- Loss of enjoyment: You could recover compensation if you are no longer able to enjoy your life to the extent you did before you were injured.
Damages you could recover if your loved one passed away from their injuries include:
- Medical costs for any life-saving medical care or comfort measures
- Funeral and burial/cremation costs
- Loss of consortium
- Lost income or benefits the decedent provided
Our attorneys extend our sincerest condolences if you lost a loved one unexpectedly. Although no amount of money will bring your loved one back, it can ease the financial burden you and your family are faced with after your loved one passed away. After reviewing your damages, we will calculate the value of your losses to determine how much compensation we will seek.

How Long Do You Have To File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Longview?
After you get injured, your priority may be to heal your injuries. Some injuries might not show up immediately after the accident or will worsen throughout time. Although filing a personal injury claim might not be the first thing on your mind, it can be helpful to your case. Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003 states you generally have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit.
Speaking with an attorney from our firm soon after your case can be helpful for several reasons. First, we will handle communications with the insurance company and negotiate an appropriate settlement. Second, we can help you to file a lawsuit before the statute of limitations runs out. Once the statute of limitations runs out, you may not be able to recover compensation for your injuries.
