Carrollton Personal Injury Attorney

Carrolton flag

The Carrollton personal injury attorneys at Chalaki Law are available to help you with the next steps in your injury claim. Regardless of whether you have already filed a claim, received an unfair offer, or aren’t sure what to do next, the personal injury attorneys in Carrollton can help you.

Every day in Texas, innocent individuals suffer serious injuries because of the negligence of others. These injuries often occur from car accidents, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, dog bites, and many other causes. When another party acts negligently, recklessly, or even intentionally resulting in your injuries, you could be entitled to compensation.

IS THERE A TIME LIMIT TO FILE A TEXAS PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM?

Personal injury claims of any type are subject to the statute of limitations in their state. The statute of limitations is a pre-determined amount of time that the law gives injured individuals to file their claims. Under Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code section 16.003, people who want to file a personal injury case in Texas need to do so within two years of the cause of action or the date of the injury.

However, suppose the claim involves a minor or an injury that wasn’t discovered until after the date of the accident. In that case, the statute of limitations can be tolled. This means the two years doesn’t begin from the date of the accident but another date. If either of these circumstances applies in your case, it’s best to talk to a knowledgeable Carrollton personal injury attorney as soon as possible to determine when you must file your claim.

If you don’t file a claim within the two-year deadline, it will lose its validity. You can still file the claim, but the court will most likely deny it due to the expired statute of limitations. To avoid missing the deadline, don’t hesitate to contact a personal injury lawyer at our firm after you sustain an injury.

COLLECTING AND PRESERVING EVIDENCE

Another benefit of contacting a personal injury attorney in Carrollton sooner rather than later after sustaining an injury is due to evidence. Evidence for all types of personal injury cases can be quickly lost, damaged, or destroyed after the event. The sooner evidence is collected, the more valuable it will be in supporting your claim. Your attorney will know what evidence is crucial in your case based on the nature of your injuries and the type of accident. Without certain pieces of evidence, you may not be able to receive full and fair compensation for your damages.

WHAT DAMAGES ARE AVAILABLE IN A PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM?

The purpose of filing a personal injury claim or a lawsuit is to recover money to help pay for your expenses and inconveniences related to your injury. These expenses and inconveniences are known as damages. Your damages are assigned a value. This is the amount of compensation you receive in a settlement or a court award.

Damages can be economic or non-economic. Economic damages are often sometimes called special damages and represent your financial losses. They have an inherent value that is easily calculable such as:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Travel expenses to and from medical appointments

On the other hand, non-economic or general damages don’t have a pre-assigned value. These damages are subjective and commonly include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium and companionship
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Mental anguish
  • Scarring or disfigurement

Even though they don’t have a value that is easy to calculate, your personal injury attorney could help negotiate a settlement that fairly represents your general damages. Many times how much you receive for non-economic damages depends on what your economic damages are worth.
