Available Financial Compensation After a Car Accident
Assessing the financial value of your car accident can be complicated. Many of the expenses you incur might be difficult to document or calculate. Our law firm’s familiarity with state and local law means we understand the types of damages the law may entitle you to recover.
Calculating these damages is usually a simple matter of tabulating the receipts, bills, and estimates that accompany them. However, this can be complex because it may require contacting many agencies and facilities to compile these documents.
Your economic damages may include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future income loss
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Treatment-related travel expenses
We can also seek the costs of repairing or replacing your damaged vehicle or its diminished resale value.
Calculating the value of these damages can be challenging since they do not come with bills or receipts. We may collect other documentation to establish the value of these damages, such as your written prognosis.
Your non-economic damages may include:
- Physical disability
- Physical disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
We may also recover damages for your diminished quality of life if the accident caused injuries that forced changes to your lifestyle.
Wrongful Death Damages
The unexpected loss of a loved one can leave your family reeling and uncertain of what to do or where to turn for guidance and direction. You have our deepest condolences and our commitment to fight to recover damages for your family.
Wrongful death damages may include:
- Funeral costs
- Burial expenses
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of companionship
We may also recover damages for your family’s loss of your loved one’s financial and other contributions to your household.

Our Sugar Land Attorneys Will Fight to Protect Your Financial Award
Texas has many personal injury laws that might put your right and ability to recover damages in Sugar Land at risk. Two primary factors that might threaten your financial award are any actions you took that may have contributed to the accident and the timing of your potential lawsuit.
Texas’ Proportionate Responsibility Law
According to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 33.001, any compensation you are awarded after a car accident could be diminished if you are found to bear any amount of responsibility for contributing to the accident.
For example, if 25% of the accident is ascribed to you, your damages will be reduced by 25%. If half or more of the accident’s cause can be attributed to you, you will not recover any damages. We will fight hard to prove any contributory actions on your part were minimal or that you did not contribute to the accident’s cause at all.
Our Sugar Land Car Accident Attorney Will Get Started on Your Case Right Away
All civil lawsuits in Sugar Land have a mandatory statute of limitations imposed by the state. Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003 generally entitles you to two years:
- From the date the accident occurred to file your personal injury lawsuit
- From the date of a loved one’s passing to file your wrongful death lawsuit
Failure to comply with the statute of limitations could result in an inability to file your lawsuit or its immediate dismissal. Additionally, the deadline may change in certain circumstances, making compliance difficult. The best way to ensure timely filing is to let our legal team handle it for you.
