Texas Personal Injury Laws
In order to succeed in a personal injury lawsuit, you must prove the following:
The defendant owed you a duty of care
The defendant breached that duty
The defendant’s breach caused your injury
You suffered losses (e.g. medical treatment, property damage, lost income, etc.)
There are three types of damages you may be entitled to: economic damages, non-economic damages, and punitive damages. Economic damages consist of financial losses such as hospital bills, lost wages, and property damage, while non-economic are less tangible types of economic loss like pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of consortium. Punitive damages are designed to punish the defendant for their grossly negligent conduct and deter others from following in their actions.
