Keep in mind that these aren’t the only types of personal injury claims that we handle. If you don’t see what happened to you on this list, that doesn’t mean that you can’t seek legal help. When you speak with one of our Brownsville, TX personal injury attorneys, they’ll be able to answer all your questions and help you determine if you have a case against the other party.

Texas Negligence Laws That Impact Your Case

As mentioned above, one of the main parts of your personal injury case will determining and proving who was at fault for the accident in the first place. Your attorneys will stick to the facts and use all the evidence they have collected from you and other sources to prove that the other party was negligent, and that their actions are what led to all the damages that you’ve suffered.

In this process, part of your lawyer’s job will be proving that you weren’t at fault for what happened since Texas follows a comparative negligence statute called proportionate responsibility. This means that if you were partially at fault for the accident, your compensation will be reduced by the percentage that you are determined to be at fault for. If you are found to be over half at fault, then you won’t be able to recover any compensation at all.

This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t file a claim if you think you might be partially responsible. It just means that you’ll need to provide your attorney with all your documentation so that they can make a full assessment of your claim up front. That way, they can look to the evidence to determine if you were over half at fault before even filing a claim, so they can save you the trouble of legal proceedings if you won’t be able to win anyway.
