Terms You Should Know
Winning any personal injury case begins by establishing who is at fault and therefore, liable for your injuries and damages. This question is made more complex by Texas law, which allows juries to apportion liability on a percentage basis. For example, it’s quite possible a jury could conclude that the Defendant was only 75% liable and that you are 25% liable. In that case, the Defendant would only be responsible for 75% of your injuries and damages. If there were 3 parties involved, a jury could apportion liability to 3 different people. The attorneys with McKay Law have a clear understanding of the law and know how to present evidence to establish 100% liability on the negligent person.
After liability is established, a jury may award monetary compensation for injuries and damages. But injuries and damages must be proven. Proof of damages requires the knowledge of what types of damages are recognized in Texas law and how to acquire and present the evidence so that it will be admissible in court. Common types of damages include past medical expenses, future medical expenses, pain and suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, past and future impairment, and loss of consortium. The attorneys with McKay Law fully know and understand that a demonstration of damages is critical to a recovery in a personal injury case.
Damage to my vehicle is minimal
Do you open the egg carton at the grocery store before you put the eggs in your basket? The external carton may not be damaged, but the eggs may still be cracked. External damage to your vehicle is not an indicator of whether you are hurt. Only a complete physical examination can determine personal injury following an accident. Symptoms of injury may not manifest until days or weeks after the accident.
