What Is a Personal Injury Case?

Personal injury is a legal term that is used to describe a wide array of injuries that can impact the body, emotions and mind of an injured victim. A personal injury case can help protect victims that have suffered damages from an injury.

Based on the unique nature of the injury suffered, different damages are available to help compensate a victim for the physical and emotional harm suffered in an accident. Every personal injury case includes liability and damages. If the defendant in a personal injury case is found to be at fault for liability and damages, the justice system can award compensation to a plaintiff for the losses suffered.

Why You Need an Austin Personal Injury Lawyer

If you have been injured in an accident or sustained major property damage, it is important to engage legal services shortly thereafter.

Insurance companies have experts and legal resources that are out to protect their own interests. An Austin personal injury attorney will handle all discussions with an insurance company and carriers and represent you in negotiations. This will ensure that your medical bills and property damage claim to your vehicle are paid in a timely manner. Frequently, insurers will attempt to mitigate payments by offering low settlement offers that do not accurately take into account the full amount of damages that have occurred. With the assistance of experienced personal injury attorneys, an injury victim can feel confident that their legal representation is fighting for maximum compensation to help restore your well-being.

An experienced lawyer will be knowledgeable of the personal injury laws in Texas, qualifying them to find essential medical experts. Experts who can not only provide you with the best possible treatment for your injuries but if necessary can later testify on your behalf during trial regarding the extent of your injuries and their effect on your future.

The team of investigative staff that comes with hiring an attorney will also prove beneficial to your personal injury claim, especially during settlement negotiations or trial. Your lawyer will use the information they discover from recreating the auto accident, or scene of the injury, to examining the facts surrounding your case in order to prove liability and pursue the maximum amount of compensation that you deserve.

What Are the Differences Between Compensatory and Punitive Damages in a Personal Injury Case?

Compensatory damages are awarded to plaintiffs to help compensate for the damages caused from an injury or injuries. In order for an accident victim to recover compensatory damages, the plaintiff must be able to prove that the loss occurred and that the defendant caused these financial damages. A few common examples of compensatory damages include:

  • Medical bills
  • Medical equipment
  • Lost wages or income from employment

Punitive damages are different from compensatory damages in how these damages are intended to punish the defendant. These types of damages are designed to help deter the defendant from acting in the same reckless manner in the future. Punitive damages are awarded when the court has determined that compensatory damages are inadequate in compensating the plaintiff for their physical suffering and emotional impact.

Brad and his team did a great job in helping me navigate the claims process. I was in a rental vehicle within hours of my accident and Bonilla stayed in constant contact with me, giving me important updates and information. My case was successfully settled within 6 months. I highly recommend the Bonilla Law Firm.
