Compensation in Personal Injury Lawsuits
While no two cases are the same, and compensation will vary depending on your injuries and the circumstances of your case, you could potentially recover compensation for the following economic and non-economic damages:
- Medical bills and future medical expenses
- Rehabilitation costs
- Costs for a household help
- Costs for home health care
- Loss of wages and future wages
- Property damage
- Loss of quality of life
- Mental anguish
- Pain and suffering
There could be other types of damages available in your case, including punitive damages in addition to any compensation.
Suffering serious injuries in an accident that was no fault of your own can be depressing, especially if you are left with a mountain of medical bills. However, having a Fort Worth personal injury lawyer by your side and fighting for your best interests can help you recover what is due to you.
We can help to protect you not just from any present bills and financial losses, but potentially also from any future costs that arise from an accident, for example, if you are unable to return to your career. Contact Ben Crump Law, PLLC today for more information.

Texas Statute of Limitations
If you have recently been in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you should take action as soon as possible. Time is of the essence not only for gathering evidence and witness statements for your case, but you will also have a time limit in which you can generally file a personal injury lawsuit.
The Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code section 16.003 generally prohibits filing a personal injury lawsuit after two years of the date of the accident. It can be beneficial to act as soon as you can after an accident.

We can also help in other personal injury cases. A lawyer can find out if you have a case, and how we can help you get justice and compensation.
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), most personal injury cases are settled out of court. However, these settlements typically involve lengthy negotiations with insurance companies and defendants. It can be tempting to think you can settle a claim on your own without the help and advice of a legal professional. However, having a personal injury lawyer by your side can protect you and help you ensure that a defendant or insurance company is not taking advantage of you.
If you were recently injured in any type of accident that was someone else’s fault, and the at-fault party or an insurance adjuster approaches you with the attempt to settle your damages, we advise you to consult a lawyer before agreeing to anything or signing any documents.
The at-fault party and insurance company typically have their own interests at heart and will most likely try to offer you the absolute minimum. While this can help with any bills you have now, it may not be enough to pay for any losses you might have in the future, for example, for ongoing medical treatment. Also, consider that once you accept an out-of-court settlement, you typically agree to not pursue any legal action later on. You have the right to hire a personal injury lawyer to try to negotiate a settlement for you.
We can help negotiate a fair settlement out of court and take the case to court if necessary. Even if you would prefer an out-of-court settlement, consider the benefits of working with a Fort Worth personal injury lawyer.
