Almost every second of every day across America, someone is suffering some sort of personal injury. It does not matter if they are driving in a car or at the workplace; accidents can happen anywhere and tend to happen when we least expect them. A lot of the time they result from an action that is no fault of your own, and when this happens you have the legal right to seek restitution.
When statewide tort reform passed in 2003, filing a personal injury claim in Texas got more difficult. At Liggett Law Group, our passion for helping individuals injured by the negligence of others only increased. Now that personal injury claims face higher scrutiny and attorneys must worker harder to obtain a good result for their clients, other law firms are turning away injured individuals. We do no such thing.
Liggett Law Group works hard to represent the injured in West Texas and Eastern New Mexico. Our law firm has the ability to handle a variety of personal injury cases, and we take our clients’ cases personally.
If you have been injured as the result of negligence by another person, company or organization; this page will help you understand what your rights are under the law and the steps in the personal injury claims process.
Many of the victims of these personal injury accidents were injured through no fault of their own. If another person or business acted negligently and that negligence caused your injuries, then you may have grounds to file a personal injury claim. As a victim, you may be entitled to be reimbursed for any medical expenses you have incurred, be compensated for lost time at work or future lost income, and to have your future financial situation taken care of if you have been injured or disabled so badly that you can no longer work.
If you have lost a loved one in an accident caused by negligence, you may also be entitled to make a claim against the responsible party through a wrongful death claim.
If you have been injured in an accident where another party is at fault and you have incurred expenses and financial losses because of that, then you are entitled to file a claim to get back what you have lost financially. This should be done as soon as possible after the incident to give you the best chance of having your legal claim honored.
Can you represent yourself in court? Yes, but it is highly advisable not to. You are less likely to win the claim if you represent yourself and if you do win, the compensation is usually less than if you had legal representation. There is no substitute for having an experienced personal injury lawyer handling your case.
At the very least, do yourself the favor of sitting down with a reputable personal injury lawyer and see what they have to say. At Liggett Law Group, these consultations are free and you will most likely be surprised at how complex this legal process is.
The at-fault party is most likely going to deny responsibility and surround themselves with experienced legal counsel. If an insurance company is part of the lawsuit, you can bet that their trained legal staff will work hard to deny your claim. Their job is to make sure victims like you get little or nothing from a claim, and they are very good at what they do. You should have an experienced, aggressive attorney representing your interests as well.
