Personal Injury

What is meant by personal injury?

Personal injury is a term that means that a person has suffered an injury, whether the injury is physical or mental, as a result of another person’s negligence. Personal Injury revolves around cases that involve: auto accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, premises liability, slip & fall accidents, wrongful death, dog bites, etc.

How long does a typical personal injury claim take? What is the process?

A personal injury case may take up to two years or longer to resolve if it is not litigated. This means that the statute of limitations on a personal injury case is two years for most cases. If the case is litigated then it may take longer than two years. The initial process will involve proving liability. Upon liability being accepted by the other party then property damage should be resolved. Once property damage is resolved the bodily injury portion should be examined closely. It is important to understand all claims that can be made under the law in the state of Texas. Consult with an attorney so you can be advised of your rights.

How much is my personal injury claim worth?

After suffering an injury, many questions come to mind. How did this happen? Who is responsible? How can I make ends meet if I am forced to miss work?

As a personal injury attorney in Houston, Hilda Sibrian often finds that people want to know how much their lawsuit is worth.

This question, as you can imagine, is very difficult to answer precisely. Every situation is different, because different injuries and circumstances are involved. Properly evaluating the worth of a case takes the skill of an experienced lawyer. There is no simple calculation. A personal injury case will depend on the following variables, among other things:

  • Age
  • Sex
  • Body type
  • Impact level
  • Direction of impact
  • Vehicle make
  • Injury
  • Diagnostic testing/diagnosis
  • Venue or county in which impact occurred
  • Areas of the body that were affected
  • Type of vehicle that impacted you
  • Witness statements
  • Factors affecting the credibility of witnesses
  • Pre-existing injuries
  • Aggravating factors
  • Punitive or exemplary damages
  • Other factors

You may seek monetary compensation for the following claims:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering and mental distress
  • Future medical care
  • Future earning potential
  • Other claims

As you can see, it is extremely difficult to even estimate what a claim may be worth. If you have spoken with an attorney that has given you a concrete number, it is worth questioning how they arrived at such an estimate.

If you have been injured in an accident caused by the negligence of another, contact The Law Offices of Hilda Sibrian to speak with one of our attorneys. Our staff will be honest and thorough when examining the details of your claim. We will discuss the circumstances surrounding your injury, address your concerns and questions, and provide a safe arena for you explore your legal options.

What do I have to prove to win my personal injury case? How hard is this to do?

In order to prove your case you must first prove that liability rests with the other driver or responsible party. Witness statements and police reports are often instrumental in proving liability. The evidentiary standard used in civil cases is preponderance of the evidence. Once you get through the hurdle of proving liability you will then have to prove up damages. Some damages may be proven by medical bills and records, expense receipts, pictures, witness statements, estimates of repair, etc.

General

How do I know if I need a lawyer after an accident?

A personal injury claim can turn out to be quite a complicated matter to resolve for most people. A lawyer will help you to effectively navigate through the maze of documents, hearings, statements and bills. It is always advisable to seek the assistance of a lawyer to make sure you are doing the right thing.

How long will it take to complete my claim?

If the settlement negotiations take their usual course, a settlement may be reached within NINETY (90) days after we receive your physician’s final report. Most cases are resolved within a year. However, if the responsible party is unreasonable in settlement negotiations and you demand a jury trial, it may be 3 to 4 years. (Approximately 10% of our cases).

How much is my case worth?

This is the most common question in personal injury cases. No two cases are identical. Some key variables are sex, age, weight, height, prior injuries, pre-existing conditions, pain threshold, severity of injuries, number of injuries, types of injuries, medication required, type of therapy and frequency, permanence of injuries, degree of disability, type of disability, amount of work loss, the physician’s final diagnosis and prognosis, and there are many others factors which contribute to our overall evaluation of your claim’s Settlement Value.

What is negligence?

Negligence is a term commonly used in personal injury law that refers to any type of reckless, careless, or wanton action that results in the injury or death of another. For example, when a driver is inattentive and causes an accident that is negligence, or when a person text messages while driving and causes an accident, that may also be considered negligence. Similarly, if a property owner is aware of a dangerous condition on his premises, but fails to take appropriate action to remedy the dangerous condition and a guest or patron suffers an injury due to the dangerous condition, the property owner will be considered negligent and will be held liable for paying damages.

Where can I find information about the responsible party’s insurance company?

You can find information relating to insurance companies in Texas through the Texas Department of Insurance.

How long do I have to file a claim?

The statute of limitations is two years from the date of injury in most cases. You have to either settle the case or file a lawsuit to protect the statute of limitations.

Our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis on personal injury cases. You will not be required to pay any attorney fees unless we are able to recover a settlement. Once a settlement is recovered, we will take a percentage of your settlement as a form of payment.
