Personal Injury

Fort Bend Personal Injury Attorneys Located In Richmond, Texas

Fairness dictates that when someone harms another, they should make that person whole even if the harm was a complete accident. This concept can easily be seen in everyday situations such as a person accidentally knocking over someone’s coffee and buying him or her a new one. The goal of personal injury law is to enforce this concept of fairness in more serious situations where far more money is on the line.

Personal injury law covers just about any type of accident where someone can be injured. This includes vehicle accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, boats, buses, trains and even airplanes. It includes situations where fun went wrong such as amusement park injuries, jet ski accidents, and swimming pool accidents. Every day situations like slips, trips, food poisoning, pedestrian accidents, and premises liability are also covered. So are more severe situations like burns, chemical inhalation, asbestos, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and nursing home abuse. The only real requirement for a personal injury claim is that a person was injured and it was someone else’s fault.

The goal of a personal injury lawsuit is to provide the injured person with full compensation to leave them in a position as if the injury never happened at all. This includes both immediate and follow-up medical care. If they had to miss work or suffered a disability that prevented them from returning to work, they are entitled to lost wages. Additional compensation may be awarded when a person is so severely injured that they are no longer to participate in activities they used to enjoy.
