A personal injury is an injury to your body, mind, or emotions, as the result of an accident or the poor choices (negligence) of another. These injuries can be caused by a car accident, tractor trailer wreck, motorcycle accident, slip and fall accident, drunk driver wreck, hit and run wreck, pedestrian collision, slip and fall injury, or any situation where the poor choices of another lead to injury of your body, mind, or emotions.
A car wreck, a crash between two cars, often results in personal injuries. Personal injuries from car wrecks have a significant range, from neck or back sprain, to life altering injuries, like broken bones, scarring, paralysis, and to the extreme, death. Other damages from a personal injury suffered in a car accident include lost wages, scarring, pain and suffering, mental anguish, future lost wages, future pain and suffering, and future mental anguish.
Tractor trailer wrecks occur between a tractor trailer and a car, motorcycle, truck, bicycle, travel trailer, van, pedestrian, basically any type of vehicle that can be driven on the road. Tractor trailer wrecks typically result in more significant personal injuries. It is very important to gather evidence from a tractor trailer wreck immediately, including in car videos, black box results, driver's logs, photographs, videos, any physical testing performed by or on the tractor trailer driver, and any other evidence gathered by the investigating agencies or the trucking company.
A motorcycle wreck is a wreck between a motorcycle and any other vehicle driven on the road. Motorcycle riders often have to lay their bikes down, to avoid collisions, and even if there is no contact with the other vehicle, these accidents still result in personal injuries, to the rider, due to the poor choices of another. Because motorcycles only have two wheels, there are other issues on the road that can cause motorcycle wrecks, like broken oil lines, that leave oil on the road, potentially causing a motorcycle to lose balance and crash. Also, motorcycles are smaller than cars and sometimes other drivers do not give them the attention they deserve, causing motorcycle wrecks and personal injuries.
Drunk driver wrecks, in Texas, occur when the at fault driver has a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher. It is very important to get the drunk driver evidence, like 911 calls, 911 call logs, in car video, officer lapel recordings, drunk tank videos, witness statements, and blood alcohol content analysis of the drunk driver,from the State. Texas juries don't like drunk drivers and insurance adjusters know this, so gathering this evidence immediately will add great value to your personal injury claim, once presented to the bodily injury adjuster.
Hit and run wrecks occur when the at fault driver crashes into another vehicle or person and leaves the scene. In these instances, as well as all other crashes, it is very important to call the police. If the hit and run driver is not found shortly after leaving the scene of the wreck, it is important to follow up with the investigating officer, regarding the hit and run collision. Thankfully, if the victim had uninsured motorist coverage, at the time of the hit and run wreck, it could cover the victim, if the hit and run driver is never found.
Slip and fall injuries occur when a person slips or trips on someone else's property and sustains a bodily injury. These types of injuries can occur in a home or at a business or a location open to the public. It is very important to report your slip and fall injury to a manager, a person of authority, or the homeowner, if you are injured a home. It is also important to get photographs of the location where the slip and fall injuries occurred, as well as written statements from all witnesses to the slip and fall accident.
A wrongful death is a death caused by the wrongful acts of another. A wrongful death can result from a car accident, tractor trailer wreck, motorcycle accident, slip and fall accident, drunk driver wreck, hit and run wreck, pedestrian collision, slip and fall injury, or any situation where the poor choices of another lead to the death of the victim. A wrongful death action is brought on behalf of the estate of the person that suffered the wrongful death.
