The city of Beaumont and its residents emanate the unique culture of southeast Texas, an attitude that includes resiliency and hard work. If you suffered a serious injury that was not your fault, it might have interfered with your drive to earn a living and better your life.
The person or people who caused your injury could be held responsible for restoring your losses through compensation. Learn how a Beaumont personal injury lawyer from Loncar Lyon Jenkins can help you seek financial compensation that you may be entitled to.
Injuries Can Alter Your Life in an Instant
Suffering an unexpected injury, especially a serious one, can leave you facing many questions. These questions can include:
- Will you be able to work with your injury?
- If not, how long will you be unable to work?
- Will your injury cause you to lose your job?
- How will you support your family that depends on you while injured?
These questions can be daunting, especially if the answers you receive from doctors and other parties are not what you were hoping for. So another question should follow these, and it is: who is responsible for your injuries?
The person or people who caused or contributed to your injuries may vary based on:
- Where you were injured
- How you were injured
- What caused the conditions that led to your injury
Some possible answers to who might be at fault for your injury include:
- An employer, since, as Forbes notes, Beaumont’s economic landscape includes potentially high-risk working environments in industries such as defense and freight
- The premises owner, such as a business or housing complex, if they failed to maintain the property and caused your injury
- A motorist, if you were injured during a motor vehicle collision or pedestrian accident
There are many other possible causes of a negligence-based injury. A lawyer may be able to help you seek compensation if you get injured by a defective product. They can also assist with malpractice claims against negligent medical professionals.

We Can Determine How Negligence Contributed to Your Accident
Successful personal injury cases involve four elements of negligence. When pursuing compensation, you must demonstrate that another party was responsible for your injuries. To do this, you have to establish four specific facts:
- Someone owed you a basic duty of care to keep you reasonably safe
- The responsible party breached their duty of care in some way
- The breach in duty of care led or contributed to your accident
- You suffered injuries and losses as a result of your accident
When we investigate your case, we can gather evidence that links another party’s actions to your accident. We can consult your doctors and other experts to show the connection between your accident and injuries.
Each personal injury claim is unique, but one factor remains the same—negligence. Regardless of the nature of your accident, someone may have caused or contributed to it. We can work to hold the at-fault party responsible and pursue fair compensation for your injuries.

Types of Compensation You Can Pursue Through a Personal Injury Claim
You may be facing several stressors as the result of an injury. You could:
- Be under significant emotional stress
- Be limited physically
- Be permanently disabled
- Be out of work
- Be facing financial costs related to your accident and worsened by your inability to work as you usually do
A lawyer can survey the extent of damages you endured because of the negligence of another person and put together a compensation case. Some of the compensation may include coverage for:
- Medical expenses that were caused by the actions of another person
- Income that you have lost and will lose because your injuries prevent you from working
- Physical pain and related suffering
- Mental anguish
- Any decline in your long-term earning capacity caused by your injuries
If you have lost a loved one because of negligence, you can bring a wrongful death lawsuit and collect coverage for:
- Loss of consortium, which can encompass various benefits that your loved one provided, such as comfort and guidance
- Loss of a loved one’s income, especially if their family depended on them financially
- Funeral costs
- Healthcare costs for the deceased

How a Personal Injury Attorney Can Help You
Whether you choose to bring a personal injury or a wrongful death lawsuit, you may find value in a conversation with our law firm. Initially, you may find that a lawyer can:
- Provide a basic assessment of whether you have a case for compensation
- Inform you of the behaviors that may have put you or your loved one in danger
- Identify who they believe is responsible for your losses
- Layout their plan for pursuing compensation should they represent you
If you do choose to bring a lawsuit with assistance from a personal injury attorney, then you can expect them to:
- Formulate an argument for the responsibility of defendants in your case
- Draft and file paperwork that could begin and work towards completion of your lawsuit
- Make in-person court appearances
- Calculate the compensation that they may request on your behalf
- Conduct settlement negotiations
- If called for, put forward your case at trial
- Defend your rights
Your lawyer will be tasked with proving that one or more people contributed to your losses through negligence. The American Bar Association (ABA) describes negligence as:
- Acts that are not inflicted intentionally but that result in harm
- Acts that would be reasonably viewed as likely to cause injury
- Failures to act that would be reasonably viewed as likely to cause injury
Your lawyer can argue that the defendants named in your lawsuit are guilty of one or more of these definitions of negligence and, therefore, should be liable for your damages.

Our Personal Injury Law Firm Works on a Contingency-Fee Basis
After an accident, you are already stressed out with medical bills and lost wages. Seeking legal representation should not add to your struggles. You do not have to worry about affording a lawyer with our firm.
We can take your case on a contingency-fee basis. Instead of charging upfront or hourly fees, our attorneys only take a percentage of a settlement or verdict they win on your behalf. This allows us to get to work on your case immediately. It also lets you know we mean business. We will work hard on your case, as our payment depends on it.
Texas Law Limits Your Time to Take Legal Action in Personal Injury Cases
If you do need to file a personal injury lawsuit or a wrongful death lawsuit, you have a deadline to meet. Under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003, you generally have two years to file a lawsuit. Unfortunately, this does not leave much time for your lawyer to investigate your accident, gather evidence, and negotiate with insurers.
If you fail to meet your deadline, the court could dismiss your case. The sooner you reach out to us, the sooner we can begin working on your case. We can streamline the legal process as much as possible to help you abide by these deadlines.
