Tate Injury Law — Dallas-Fort Worth Personal Injury Lawyers

If you have been injured by the careless or reckless acts of another, you may suddenly find yourself thrust into a nightmare situation.

In addition to trying to recover from your injuries, you may need money to pay for your medical expenses, rehabilitation and living costs. Meanwhile, you may have missed extensive time from work and find yourself unable to work again or hold the same job you had before your injury.

Without a lawyer representing your interests, you will likely discover that it is very difficult to work with insurance companies. They may challenge your claim and use your statements against you in an effort to minimize or deny your claim.

What Can You Recover In A Dallas Personal Injury Claim?

The personal injury attorneys of Tate Law Offices, P.C., will be focused on maximizing the value of your claim. We will seek a full and fair recovery for all of the damages you have suffered. Whether it is through a settlement or verdict, we will seek a recovery of:

  • Special damages – These are damages that naturally (but not always necessarily) result from a party’s negligent or otherwise wrongful conduct. Typically, these damages include:
  • Past and future medical expenses (including emergency treatment, surgery, hospitalization, rehabilitation, assistive devices and medication)
  • Lost earnings (including lost past wages and the decrease in your ability to earn wages in the future)
  • Physical disability (or impairment)
  • Loss of consortium (or the harm to your family relationships)
  • Loss of household services (the economic value of services you would provide around the home such as mowing the lawn or taking care of the children)
  • Future pain and suffering and mental anguish.
  • General damages – These are damages that necessarily result from a party’s misconduct and may include:
    • The aggravation of a preexisting injury (such as a bad back)
    • Scarring and disfigurement (including scars from burns or loss of limbs)
    • Past pain and suffering and mental anguish.
  • Exemplary damages – These are damages that are not aimed at compensating you for your harm. Instead, they are intended to punish the party who injured you and to deter that party and others from engaging in similar conduct in the future. These are also called punitive damages. These damages can be awarded if it is shown through clear and convincing evidence that a party knew his or her conduct carried an extreme degree of risk but acted anyway with conscious indifference to the safety, rights and welfare of you and others. Exemplary damages are subject to a cap under Texas law.

As we stated above, our goal will be obtain these damages for you in a settlement without the need to file a lawsuit or go to trial. However, if needed, we will be prepared to bring your case into the courtroom.

Many of the acts or omissions that give rise to a personal injury claim may give rise to a wrongful death claim if the misconduct results in the loss of a loved one. However, a wrongful death claim is different from a personal injury claim in many important ways, including the damages which are sought. It will be crucial for you to work with a law firm that understands these differences and how they can impact your recovery.
