Types of Personal Injury Cases
We deal with many types of personal injury cases in Dallas. Examples of the cases we handle are:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Personal injury motor vehicle cases can include any type of car accident and accidents with commercial vehicles such as semi-trucks and other big rigs.
In 2018, 249,241 people suffered injuries in motor vehicle accidents on Texas roads, according to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). In the same year, 940 persons were killed in accidents involving a drunk driver.
If you suffered injuries in a car accident with a reckless or careless driver, we could help you get justice and compensation.
Slip and fall accidents fall under premises liability. These types of accidents are typically caused by a defect or dangerous condition on someone else’s property.
Premises liability accidents can occur almost anywhere and do not only include slips and falls, but any type of accident where you come to harm on someone else’s property, such as dog bites, exposure to a toxic substance, or falling down an unlit staircase. We can fight for you in any type of premises liability case where the property owner is at fault for your injuries.
Some products are defective or do not come with adequate manuals or warnings. Harmful products can include defective car parts, faulty consumer products, dangerous children’s toys, and defective medical devices, to name just a few products that can cause injuries. Product liability cases can potentially have a number of liable parties and can be challenging to prove. If you suffered injuries by a defective product, a Dallas personal injury lawyer could be helpful for weighing your legal options.
Medical mistakes by doctors or nurses can have devastating and life-altering consequences for a patient. Medical malpractice can involve misdiagnosis, surgical errors, and medication mistakes, among other incidents.
Medical malpractice cases can be extremely complicated and require a great deal of research, scouring of medical records, and the testimony of expert medical witnesses. Having a personal injury lawyer build your case and represent you in court can give you peace of mind in a potentially complex medical malpractice case.
These are just some examples of personal injury cases that we can help you with. Other personal injury cases we can represent you in include nursing home neglect, boating and aircraft accidents, asbestos exposure, and many others. If your loved one died in an accident that was the fault of someone else, we could help you file a wrongful death case.

Proving Your Personal Injury Case
Not every accident is automatically a personal injury case. For you to have a case and a chance for compensation, you will have to prove the following elements in your case:
- The defendant had a duty of care.
- The defendant breached the duty of care
- The breach/negligence caused your accident.
- The accident caused your injuries.
- You have tangible damages.
Personal injury cases can be challenging to prove. However, a lawyer knows how to build a case and prove the negligence of the at-fault party. If you have suffered injuries and financial losses in an accident that was no fault of your own, contact Ben Crump Law, PLLC for help.
You Deserve Compensation
Suffering injuries due to the negligence or recklessness of someone else and being left with the financial burden, as well as suffering the physical and emotional consequences, can be devastating. You might be entitled to compensation. In a personal injury case, depending on your specific accident and the severity of your injuries, you could receive awards for the following damages, as well as others:
- Past, present, and future medical expenses.
- Costs for physical therapy.
- Replacement or repair of property damage.
- Awards for lost wages and future lost wages.
- Costs for a home health aide.
- Expenses for medical equipment, such as mobility devices.
- Awards for emotional anguish.
- Awards for loss of life quality.
A lawyer can tell you what compensation you might be able to recover.

Ben Crump Law, PLLC Can Fight for You
If you suffered injuries and expenses in an accident that was someone else’s fault recently, you may have a personal injury case and could file a lawsuit. A Dallas personal injury lawyer can help you find out about your legal options and your next best steps to get justice and compensation. We can determine whether you have a case and then help you through the entire process of a personal injury lawsuit.
If you are currently thinking about filing a lawsuit, you should act as soon as possible. The Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code section 16.003 generally sets a two-year limit on the filing of any personal injury lawsuits, starting with the day on which the accident occurred. Waiting too long can stop you from filing a personal injury lawsuit and receiving compensation.
It can also take time to research and build a case, including gathering the necessary evidence and witnesses. Giving yourself and your lawyer adequate time to research and prepare a case can be beneficial.
We understand that as the victim of an accident, you may already have financial losses due to medical bills or having to replace any property damage. If you work with us, you will not have to worry about any upfront attorney fees or out-of-pocket costs, as we work on contingency. This means that we do not charge any upfront fees and only get paid when we win your case.
