If you have suffered injuries or property damage due to someone else’s negligence, you need to hire a personal injury attorney. Personal injury claims are time sensitive and can be complex, often involving lawyers from insurance companies representing the defendant.

A personal injury lawsuit can be overwhelming, intimidating, and confusing.

Courts determine liability under a rule often referred to as proportionate responsibility or the shared fault rule. This means that if your accident involved the negligence of more than one person, each person will be liable for a portion of the awarded damages commiserate with their proportion of fault.
Under the shared fault rule you can recover damages even if the court finds you partially responsible for your own injuries. If, for instance, you suffered injuries resulting from a fall on a slippery floor in an office while you were texting, the court may find that you were partially at fault for not giving your full attention to walking. If the court finds that your portion of responsibility is less than 50 percent, you may still be able to recover damages. However, if your responsibility is judged to be 51 percent or more, you cannot receive compensation for your injuries.

The first step in any personal injury accident is always to take care of your own injuries as soon as possible. Go to the hospital or emergency room, if needed, or consult your personal physician.

Personal injury cases in Texas are judged by the Civil Practice and Remedies Code and are further governed by a “shared fault rule,” which means that you can seek recovery even if you are partially at fault for the accident. The statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is generally two years from the date of the incident. During this period, Blass Law will attempt to seek a pre-lawsuit settlement with the insurance company or, if needed, we will file the proper lawsuit documents on your behalf.
