Types of Compensation a Fort Worth Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help With
A personal injury case could result in a fair settlement covering the compensatory damages you endured due to your accident. These losses might include economic and non-economic damages related to your injuries.
Economic and Non-economic Losses
If you plan to pursue a personal injury claim or lawsuit, you could pursue many forms of financial compensation for your losses. Some of these losses could include:
- Lost income and other financial losses
- Medical expenses stemming from your injury, including future medical expenses your doctors think you may need to recover
- Income that you are likely to lose in the future
- Suffering such as mental anguish or emotional distress
- Loss of consortium
- Physical pain
A Fort Worth car accident lawyer can take account of all your losses, assign them a dollar value, and pursue compensation for you based on that figure.
Some accident victims may qualify for punitive damages, although this compensation is rare. These exemplary damages often apply when the other driver was grossly negligent, and caps on damages may apply. Our lawyers will seek whatever damages apply in order to get you what you deserve.

Seeking a Recovery After a Wrongful Death in Fort Worth
The most significant loss one can endure is the passing of a loved one. If you have suffered the death of a loved one and a court determines that their death was due to negligence – or you reach a settlement to that effect – then you may be awarded compensation for losses such as:
- The loss of the loved one’s presence may include the comfort they provided as a spouse and the guidance they provided as a parent.
- The loss of past and future earnings that your loved one did not reap because they suffered a fatal injury
- The expense of replacing the services the decedent provided for the family, like cooking, laundry, yard work, taking care of the children, and cleaning and maintaining the house
- Healthcare costs related to the deceased’s negligence-caused injury
- Funeral and burial expenses
Every case is different. We treat our wrongful death case clients with compassion and dignity while aggressively going after the party that took away your close relative. We will explore the full range of potential damages we could seek on your behalf for losing your loved one.
How You Can Afford to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in Fort Worth
Most people do not have piles of extra money sitting around, particularly after getting injured in an accident or losing a close relative.
As a result, many people assume they cannot afford to have a personal injury attorney represent them in their accident, wrongful death claim, or lawsuit. We handle these cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning you do not pay any upfront legal fees.
We work tirelessly for you throughout the entire case and wait patiently until the end to get paid. We receive a portion of the settlement proceeds or jury award. We do not get paid unless you win. So, it is fair to say that we bet our very paycheck on your case’s strength and our representation’s strength.

How Our Personal Injury Lawyers Help Accident Victims
In addition to quantifying and fighting for your losses, a lawyer can serve as your legal representative in matters. This may include:
- Representing you to all involved insurance companies
- Representing you at trial
- Representing you in settlement negotiations
- Representing you in all court appearances
- Representing you in the legal paperwork and documentation that may be required to initiate and complete your lawsuit
- Representing you in all communications with judges, attorneys, and other parties that may be a part of your lawsuit
We can answer your questions and guide you through the complex process of bringing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
We Will Handle Communications With the Insurance Company
You may suffer significantly after an accident and sense that someone else was responsible, but seeking compensation can be a complicated process. We will fight for you even when the responsible party’s representatives try to challenge or deny your claim.
We will be there to advocate for you when an insurance company:
- Claims that you were more responsible for the accident and injury than you were.
- Claims that any gap in your medical treatment means you made your injuries worse.
- Claims that you caused the accident, not their client.
- Refuses to acknowledge the seriousness of your injuries and the cost of your treatment.
- Refuses to admit that their insured caused or contributed to the accident.
When you hire a personal injury lawyer in Fort Worth to handle your claim, your attorney will deal with the insurance companies.
We can deal with the back-and-forth negotiations for you, present offers, and tell you when and if a settlement reflects the fair value of your case. We will advise you whenever an insurance company contacts us or makes a settlement offer.
Enjoy peace of mind from knowing that we are handling your legal matters so you can get the rest you need to improve.

How do I Know if I Have a Personal Injury Claim?
The American Bar Association (ABA) notes that a critical aspect of your personal injury lawsuit is negligence. The ABA explains that a person may be negligent if:
- The person owed you a fundamental duty of care to keep you reasonably safe.
- They acted in a way that was either “careless,” “thoughtless,” or failed to act in a manner that would have prevented you from suffering foreseeable harm.
- Their negligence caused or contributed to harm to you or your loved one, including injury or death.
- The injury or death led you to experience quantifiable losses. Physical injuries satisfy the requirement of measurable damages.
While these elements may generally outline what makes a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, more specific acts could qualify as negligence and allow you to bring a claim.

There Is a Limited Amount of Time to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Texas
If you are considering your legal options, keep in mind that there is a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit after an injury accident, per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003. We can tell you more about how the statute of limitations may affect your case, as there may be some exceptions to this deadline, depending on the details of your situation.
Generally, if you wait more than two years to begin the process of your case, you could lose your chance to seek compensation from the responsible party. The sooner you start, the more time you give your legal team to build a strong case.
Injuries You Could Be Facing After a Negligent Accident
These different types of accidents may produce various injuries, including catastrophic injuries that may cause severe physical and emotional distress for the rest of your life. Some of the most severe injuries that may come from a negligent act:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI) could occur alongside other serious injuries, such as a fractured skull
- Broken bones
- Spinal injuries and neck injuries
- Injuries to your vital organs
- Tendon or ligament injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Torn rotator cuff
- Dislocated joints
The specific injuries you or your loved one suffered, and the potentially negligent acts that led to those injuries may be important considerations if you pursue a lawsuit.
For example, if you were involved in a motorcycle wreck, one of our Fort Worth motorcycle accident attorneys can explain your options based on the specifics of your case during an initial consultation.
Even if you had seemingly minor injuries from your accident, you might have long-term impairment or complications. For example, someone with diabetes might have to undergo an amputation because a wound does not heal properly.
A person with arthritis might face a lifetime of pain and reduced range of motion after a minor injury. We will explore how your injuries impacted your life.
