Frequently Asked Questions

Personal injury case law pertains to a person who suffers an injury from an accident due to another person’s negligence or wrongful conduct. Personal injury law helps victims get the justice they deserve through compensation from the other responsible party for damages, lost wages, future earnings impact, and injuries they sustained.

Here are the most common types of personal injury cases in Texas:

Auto Accidents – Accidents caused by negligent party drivers or defective vehicles due to mechanical failure, recalled design, and auto parts.

Truck Accidents – 18 Wheeler, HAZMAT accidents, or other truck accidents usually occur due to negligent commercial drivers or construction accidents.

Motorcycle Accidents – Accidents involving motorcycles and other negligent drivers.

Drunk Driving / DUI Accidents – Accidents caused by drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Premise Liability – Refers to dangerous property conditions where the property owner and/or liable parties fail to provide a safe environment for workers or visitors.

Wrongful Death – Accidents resulting in a person’s death due to the negligence or reckless behavior of others.

Animal Attacks and Dog Bites – Injuries caused by animals due to negligent owners who fail to control and provide safety measures for their animals.

Medical Malpractice – When a person from the medical field fails to provide the appropriate standard of care to a patient that may cause the patient’s injury or death.

Each case varies, but the answer is almost always “yes.”

First off, filing for compensation is not easy; it can be very tedious and puts much pressure on the victims and their families. Second, insurance companies are NOT on your side. They will use their practically infinite resources to exhaust you – mentally and financially until you are forced to settle for an unjust compensation. During these trying times, your primary focus should be on personal recovery and returning to your pre-accident life.

If you are injured during an accident, you may be able to seek compensation. Each case is different, so it is important to contact a reputable personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. In order to have a personal injury case, you need the following:

  1. Negligence—Was the other party responsible in the accident?
  2. Physical Injury.
  3. Prove financial loss due to the injury—wages, medical bills, car repair etc.
  4. Bring a suit before the statute of limitations passes.

Protect your rights. Call The Hadi Law Firm and one of our attorneys will discuss your case at no charge. You have nothing to lose.

You should speak with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. The insurance company may call you shortly after your accident to request a statement from you, and they will require this statement be recorded. This statement may be used against you at a later date, so it is important to seek legal counsel before providing any information to the insurance company or authorizing them to obtain information about you. An attorney can determine what the insurance company is and is not entitled to obtain, review statements and other evidence, and can make sure that those statements are preserved for use later in the case. In addition, hiring an attorney sooner rather than later can help ensure that witnesses remember as much about the accident as possible and can collect evidence quickly for use during trial proceedings if necessary.

Most of our clients have begun the claims process on their own after an injury, but they have found it stressful and burdensome.

If you are injured, you should file a personal injury claim within two years of discovering the incident.

Yes. All information you share with us is protected by the attorney-client privilege and will remain confidential. In addition, this confidentiality applies even if after the case or if you do not hire us.

Automobile accidents are some of the most expensive accidents, as they frequently result in damage to property, serious injuries, and even fatalities.Some of the damages that should be accounted for in a claim are:
  • Medical bills, medication, medical devices, surgery, physical therapy, and ongoing care.
  • Immediate medical care that was needed following the accident.
  • The reasonable cost of any replacement services. These often include child care, home maintenance, yard work, and other costs you bear after being injured.
  • Lost wages and lost future earnings.
  • Property damage, including the decline of the value of your car.
  • Pain and suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress.

That depends on the facts and complexity of the case. The shortest cases resolve in only a few weeks and without any formal litigation. Our attorneys also work with the insurance companies to reach an agreement that is in your best interest and takes the least time possible. However, in many cases, litigation can continue for well over a year.

Most cases fall somewhere in between. The good news is, you have some control over the length of your case because it’s up to you to accept or reject any settlement offers.

Our attorneys work side-by-side with you to maximize the settlement amount by carefully building strong evidence in your case. It’s essential to understand all of the categories of damages that apply and build evidence for each category of loss you’re claiming. Our attorneys also carefully prepare court filings that comply with the law in Texas. When the other side files court motions, you must respond aggressively and appropriately to maximize your injury settlement.

No, in fact the majority do not go to trial. Most personal injury claims are settled with the insurance carrier for the party deemed responsible for the accident.

In most personal injury cases, there is no minimum or maximum settlement amount. Some states have caps on damages you can be awarded in lawsuits. Every case is unique and settlements depend on several factors, including:

  • Injuries sustained.
  • Damages, such as lost wages and medical bills.
  • Potential length of injury.
  • Negligence.

When it comes to damages, you can typically recover the following:

  • Medical expenses (Both past and future, depending on the facts of your case).
  • Lost wages.
  • Property damage.
  • Pain and suffering.
  • Mental anguish.
  • Disfigurement.
  • Loss of earning capacity.
  • Funeral expenses (In wrongful death cases).
  • Loss of inheritance (In wrongful death cases).

Yes, you certainly can. Although Texas is an at-fault state (which means that the person who caused the accident can be sued for damages), partial fault liability is a concept used in Texas personal injury cases. Under partial fault liability (also known as comparative fault liability), if both parties contributed to an accident, then the injured party’s recovery may be reduced by a percentage of that party’s degree of fault.

Remember, the Insurance companies have a vested interest in minimizing their liabilities, so they will naturally advise you to not speak to an attorney and accept whatever settlement they offer. You have a right to fair legal representation and should therefore seek an opinion from a personal injury lawyer.

The other side’s insurance adjuster will call you after an accident. Do NOT speak with the adjuster.

As soon as you can after the accident, get in touch with one of our attorneys. Once you have hired us, you can refer the adjuster to our lawyers who will ensure that you are not taken advantage of. Ideally, you should refrain from giving any information to anyone other than your attorney.

When you’ve been in an auto accident with an at-fault driver, you should consider hiring an Attorney to represent your interests. Insurance company adjusters are not on your side and are experienced at handling auto accident claims. Their goal is to settle your claim as cheaply as possible.

Defining a liable party in a slip and fall case is difficult because of the many factors involved. In most cases, the outcome will ultimately be determined by whether the owner of the property was careless or if the injured individual contributed to their own harm.
