How Our Dallas Fort Worth Attorneys Can Resolve Your Personal Injury Case

As personal injury lawyers in Dallas, our job is to recover fair compensation from someone who has injured our client through negligence, or from their insurance company. That is not an easy job because defendants tend to be evasive, while insurance companies tend to undervalue your claims. Following is a general overview of the claim resolution process.

01 step

We File Your Claim

The first step in obtaining compensation for you is to file a formal written claim with the opposing party, typically an insurance company with whom the defendant holds a policy. We will gather information from you concerning your claim, and we will issue a demand letter to the opposing party as a starting point for negotiations.

02 step

We Investigate Your Case

We will investigate the facts of your case to obtain as much evidence as possible supporting your claim. This includes evidence of the defendant’s liability as well as evidence of the magnitude of your losses. We usually file a lawsuit to take advantage of the court-supervised discovery process, to aggressively push your matter forward, and to show the insurance carrier that we mean business.

03 step

We Negotiate Your Settlement

Insurance adjusters have a thousand negotiating tricks up their sleeves. We have seen them all before, and we’re not going to fall for any of them. Let us handle the negotiations while you focus on recovering your health. Remember, though, that only you can approve a settlement offer.

04 step

We Litigate Your Case

We settle the vast majority of our client’s personal injury claims outside of court. Nevertheless, under certain circumstances, the defendant may refuse to offer just compensation for your pain and suffering. In that case, we may have no choice but to take your claim all the way to trial. Our attorneys enjoy extensive successful litigation experience– which is exactly why so few opposing parties dare to meet us in court.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

There are many different ways to injure the human body, and we have seen almost all of them at some point or another. These claims can get complex, and you are going to need a lawyer for personal injury law in Dallas to maximize your chance of victory.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents come in different varieties, including:
Each of these types of accidents presents its own unique challenges.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can be catastrophic, especially for an older adult. They are more common than many people realize. The owners of premises, including business premises, have a duty to keep their property safe for visitors.

Wrongful Death

Any type of personal injury can lead to a wrongful death claim if the victim dies from their injuries. The victim’s surviving spouse, children, or parents receive the compensation generated by a successful wrongful death claim.

Dog Bites

A dog attack can scar you for life, both physically and psychologically. Dog attacks disproportionately harm small children. A Texas court can hold a dog owner liable if they had prior reason to know of the dog’s aggressive tendencies.

Work Injuries

Work injury claims tend to be unique because they typically involve workers’ compensation claims. Workers’ compensation limits damages but relieves you of the necessity of proving that your employer was at fault.

Product Liability

A product liability claim arises when a defective product injures you. Examples include:
  • Defective brake drums
  • An unreasonably dangerous medication
  • A children’s toy
You can often win a claim against the manufacturer without even proving fault.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a health care professional harms you through substandard treatment. Typically, you need expert medical witnesses to determine the standard of care that applies.

What You Can Recover in a DFW Personal Injury Claim

When you suffer an injury caused by someone else's misconduct, you are entitled to full compensation for all of your losses, both tangible and intangible. Texas personal injury law divides personal injury compensation into three categories: special damages, general damages, and punitive damages.

Special damages are for specific economic losses, general damages are for intangible emotional and psychological damages, and punitive damages are designed to punish the defendant for outrageous behavior. Following are some examples of the various components of a personal injury damages claim.

  • Past, present, and estimated future medical expenses;
  • Lost earnings (while you were in the hospital, for example);
  • Future lost earning capacity if your injuries left you occupationally disabled;
  • Out-of-pocket expenses such as child care while you recover from your injuries;
  • Pain and suffering, for the suffering you endure on account of your physical injuries;
  • Mental anguish, for psychological suffering;
  • Other intangible damages such as compensation for loss of enjoyment of life.

Courts only occasionally award punitive damages. A good example of a case where a court may award punitive damages is a drunk driving accident.

Truck Accident

I suffered a catastrophic personal injury in a Dallas truck accident. My previous lawyer pressured me to accept a quick, inadequate settlement so he could earn a quick commission. Brooks & Radchenko, by contrast, filed a lawsuit, settled right before trial, and got me three times as much as my previous lawyer had been offering.

Car Accident

I suffered a serious injury in a car accident caused by a motorist with an inadequate insurance policy. Brooks & Radchenko discovered that the motorist had been on duty at the time of the accident. They got me a generous settlement from the defendant’s employer.

Dog Bites

My child was badly mauled by my neighbor’s dog. I didn’t want to sue because my neighbor is a good friend of mine. Mr. Brooks was able to negotiate a high-value settlement with my neighbor’s homeowner’s insurance company.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in Dallas, TX?

    arrow-svg

    Generally, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. In a wrongful death claim, you have two years from the victim’s date of death. Some narrow exceptions apply. If you miss the deadline, however, your claim’s value will drop to zero.

  • How do I get the most money for my personal injury case in Dallas?

    arrow-svg

    The best way to maximize your compensation for personal injury is to:

    • Hire the right Dallas personal injury lawyer;
    • Thoroughly investigate your claim so that you will know its true value;
    • Take a strong stand in negotiations; and
    • Be willing to file a lawsuit if necessary.

    We can help you with all of these matters.

  • What is a typical personal injury settlement in Dallas/Fort Worth?

    arrow-svg

    It is virtually impossible to calculate an average personal injury settlement in Dallas/Fort Worth because settlement amounts are typically kept secret. Even if such a figure was available, it would be misleading since personal injury settlement amounts vary drastically from case to case.

  • Should I talk to an insurance company about my injury?

    arrow-svg

    Not without consulting with your lawyer first. In fact, it would be best for you to hire a lawyer immediately and then tell the insurance company to direct any further inquiries to your lawyer. Insurance companies are very good at prompting you to make statements that they can use against you.
