Texas Laws and Proving Negligence

A personal injury claim relies heavily on proving negligence. In fact, if your lawyer can’t prove that the other party was negligent and that you did not contribute to the accident, then you likely don’t have a case, or you won’t be able to recover any compensation for what happened to you because the most crucial element of your claim is missing.

When it comes to negligence, there are specific aspects of your situation that your attorney will need to prove so that you have a firm case. The four elements of negligence are what they’ll work to show that an instance of personal injury happened, and the other party was responsible. These elements of negligence are:

  • A duty of care existed between the victim and the other party.
  • The other party breached the duty of care through an act of negligence.
  • That breach of care caused the victim to suffer from injuries.
  • Those injuries caused the victim other damages.

When the other party was fully responsible for what happened to you, you likely don’t have to worry about being eligible for a full financial recovery. But what about if you were partially responsible for the accident or situation that led to your injury? This could make your case more complicated.

You might think that sharing some of the blame completely cuts you off from being able to recover financial compensation for your damages, but that’s not necessarily true. Texas Code follows comparative negligence in personal injury claims, more specifically known as proportionate responsibility.

Personal Injury Claims Process

Going through a personal injury claim can seem like a large undertaking, and if it’s your first time, you likely have no idea what to expect. While your attorneys can’t promise a specific timeline or give you a specific number of what you’ll be able to recover financially, they can tell you the process that you’ll be going through and what each step entails.

Here is the general process for a personal injury claim:

  • Pre-trial. This is when you’ll meet with your lawyer for the first time to show them your evidence and all documentation you have of the accident, your injuries, and any subsequent damages you suffered. They’ll use this information to decide if they want to take your case, and from there, they’ll help you file a claim against the other party.
  • Discovery. In the discovery portion of your case, your attorney and the legal representation of the other party will request documents from each other in order to build each side’s case. This part of your claim could take months, or even a year or more. This might seem like a long time, but it will be full of work by your lawyer to get evidence, witness statements, and other documents to prove your claim.
