Personal Injury Litigation generally involves the payment of compensation to those who have suffered injuries due to the wrongful acts of another. As will be described more fully below, this area of practice includes not only those who have suffered injuries and survived, but also applies to the Estates of and loved ones of an individual who has suffered death due to the wrongful acts of another.

In injury cases, the individual who is injured may recover against a party who is held legally responsible for those injuries. The damages are recoverable both in the past and future. That is, they are recoverable from the time of the injury until trial and from the date of trial into the future. Those areas include the following:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental Anguish
  • Physical impairment
  • Disfigurement
  • Costs of reasonable and necessary medical bills in the past
  • Costs of reasonable and necessary medical bills in the future
  • Lost wages in the past
  • Loss of wage earning capacity in the future
  • Loss of household services

Texas Courts generally allow a family member who has lost a loved one to recover damages from the individual or entity who has wrongfully caused their death. The liability regarding the death or injury of a loved one is complex and requires immediate and thorough attention and investigation.

Generally, the family of one who is killed by the wrongful acts of another is able to recover for their personal losses caused by the loved one's death. The damages that are awarded to the family members include, but are not limited to mental anguish caused by the loss; the loss of care, comfort and companionship provided for by the decedent; and pecuniary loss.

The family members, in other words, are able to recover the loss of support that the decedent offered or in all probability would have offered in the future. These damages are developed through careful analysis of financial documents and in conjunction with the review of a well-qualified economist. These losses may include loss of support or wages in the past, loss of wages and support in the future, loss of household services in the past and future, and/or loss of inheritance.

Texas Law allows the Estate of one who is killed by the wrongful acts of another, but who survives for a period of time, to recover for damages suffered by the decedent from the time of their wrongful injury until they die. These damages essentially include the pain and suffering, mental anguish, physical impairment, disfigurement, and medical bills suffered or received during this time period. The cause of action on behalf of the Estate is generally referred to as a "Survival" cause of action. Also recoverable by the Estate would be the reasonable costs of the decedent's funeral services.
