Frequently Asked Questions

A viable personal injury claim requires proving four elements: duty of care, breach of duty of care, causation, and damages.

  • Duty of care. First, you must establish that the other party owed you a duty of care. A duty of care means they were responsible for acting in a way that would prevent harm to you. Examples include a driver's duty to follow traffic laws to protect other drivers and a property owner's duty to maintain safe premises for visitors.
  • Breach of duty of care. Next, you must show that the other party breached this duty of care through their actions or negligence. This involves demonstrating that they either knew or should have known about the risk their actions posed. For example, this breach of duty could be a driver running a red light or a property owner failing to fix a hazardous condition.
  • Then, you must demonstrate that the other party's negligence directly caused your injuries.
  • Finally, you must prove that your injuries resulted in actual damages, such as medical bills, lost wages, or pain and suffering.

If you have suffered injuries in Laredo and you believe someone else's negligence caused them, do not wait to seek legal help. A personal injury lawyer in Laredo from our firm can evaluate and help you understand the strength of your case for pursuing compensation.

A personal injury claim generally involves filing a claim with the at-fault party's insurance company. However, the process can be complex, and we recommend working with an experienced Laredo personal injury attorney to help you with your case. The steps involved generally include:

  1. Contact a Laredo personal injury lawyer. We recommend discussing your case with an experienced personal injury attorney. An attorney can evaluate and assess the validity of your claim and help you understand your best options for moving forward.
  2. Investigate and build your claim. If an attorney can help you with your case, they will conduct an independent investigation of the accident. They will gather evidence to establish clear liability of the at-fault party and prove your damages.
  3. Send a demand letter. Once you have reached maximum medical improvement (MMI) and your claim is ready, your attorney will prepare and send a demand letter to the at-fault party and their insurance company. A demand letter outlines the facts of the case, the extent of your injuries, your damages, and the compensation you seek. It generally serves as the beginning of settlement negotiations.
  4. Negotiate a settlement. After your attorney sends the demand letter, the insurance company may accept it. However, in most cases, it will send a counteroffer. This stage involves back-and-forth negotiations to reach a fair settlement agreement that compensates you for your injuries and damages. If both sides agree to a settlement, then you will sign a settlement agreement to resolve the claim. However, suppose the insurance company fails to negotiate. In that case, your attorney may recommend filing a lawsuit to fight for your right to compensation in court.

The majority of personal injury cases do not go to court. Instead, most cases are resolved out of court through settlement negotiations. A settlement is generally preferred by both parties because it avoids the cost, time, and uncertainty of going to trial.

Therefore, if both parties can agree on a fair compensation amount, the case will not go to trial. However, there are some cases where the insurance company fails to offer fair compensation. This failure may be due to questions about liability, injuries, sufficient evidence, or another reason.

If the insurance company fails to offer you fair compensation for your injuries, it may be in your best interest to file a lawsuit and fight for compensation in court.
