Personal Injury Services in Harlingen, TX 

Fighting for You in Brownsville, Hidalgo County, Cameron County, & Beyond

No matter how they occur, personal injuries can result in devastating consequences for you and your family. You may face severe or permanent disability, physical pain, emotional distress, spiraling medical expenses, the interruption or loss of your job or career, financial duress, and uncertainty. 

When these have been caused by another’s carelessness, negligence, or intentional actions, you should not be burdened with these consequences. However, you may be fighting against the at-fault party and their insurer, who will work to limit the compensation that reflects the full value of what you have endured.

The Legal Basis for Personal Injury Law

The legal theory behind Texas personal injury law is mainly based on negligence. Negligence occurs when one party fails to exercise reasonable care, resulting in harm to another party. This lack of care or intentional harm, such as in a criminal attack, commonly leaves victims injured, facing financial consequences associated with their injuries, and emotionally distressed. These consequences are considered “damages,” which can be quantified monetarily to right the wrong of being injured. 

In terms of damages, victims may be entitled to compensation for various impacts related to their injury. These are generally based on the severity of your injuries and their impact on your life. In the case of catastrophic injuries, you may face permanent disability that will affect your life forever. 

These damages can include past and future medical expenses, physical pain and suffering, emotional distress, decreased quality of life, disfigurement and scarring, and loss of earnings. In tragic cases where victims lose their lives, the family may be entitled to wrongful death damages.

The Personal Injury Claims Process

A personal injury case typically involves several steps: seeking medical treatment, hiring an attorney, investigating the claim and gathering evidence, negotiating with the insurance company, and potentially going to trial if a fair settlement cannot be reached. 

Individuals represented by lawyers often receive more compensation than those who are unrepresented because experienced attorneys know how to accurately value a claim, gather compelling evidence, negotiate effectively with insurance companies, and present a well-prepared and persuasive case in court if necessary.

Most personal injury cases involve dealing with insurance companies. These companies are notorious for using various tactics to minimize the amount they have to pay out. This often includes disputing the severity of your injuries, questioning your credibility, or arguing that you were partially or wholly at fault for the accident. 

They may pressure you into accepting a quick settlement far below what your claim may be worth, after which you will sign away your rights to further compensation. Should you need additional medical treatment in the future or face other injury-related financial losses, you may not have the resources you need to cover them. 

A skilled personal injury lawyer at our Harlingen firm can be crucial in overcoming these obstacles. Our attorneys are comfortable going to trial and will not be intimidated by hardball tactics from the insurance company. Instead, we will be prepared to fight for a fair result in court if necessary, putting you in a stronger position to receive the compensation you deserve.
