FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much is my claim worth?
The exact value of any personal injury claim cannot be determined before a settlement is agreed upon by both parties or a judgment is obtained; however, some factors can help make an estimate. Avoid any attorney or firm that "promises" or "guarantees" that they can recover a specific amount for your case. Personal injury involves some damages that have a set value and some damages that are emotional in nature. Medical bills can easily be calculated, but the value of emotional damages such as pain and suffering or mental anguish cannot. At The Law Offices of Lauren A. Harris, we will never promise to recover an exact amount for your case, but we can assure you that we will fight for the highest possible amount.
Who can file a claim for personal injury?
Anyone who has been injured as a direct result of someone else's negligence has the right to file a claim for compensation. As long as you played no part in causing your injuries and other damages, or as long as you played a part less than the responsible party in your own injuries or damages, you can recover compensation by establishing the other party's complete or greater liability. Our firm has handled countless personal injury cases. We have the experience to gather evidence and to hold the responsible party accountable for your damages.
What kinds of personal injury cases does your firm handle?
At The Law Offices of Lauren A. Harris, we handle all types of personal injury cases. Some of the most common cases we handle include car collisions, motorcycle collisions, 18-wheeler collisions, dangerous and defective products, medical malpractice and premises safety and security cases. We also represent clients filing for wrongful death in case you have lost a loved one in a fatal accident of any kind.
What damages can I recover with a personal injury claim?
Personal injury cases can involve financial, physical, emotional, and property damages. Financial damages include medical bills; gas mileage to and from doctors' appointments; property damage repairs; and more. Bodily injury or physical damages are the injuries that the victim suffers to his or her person. Emotional damages include mental anguish, and pain and suffering. Property damages can occur to any of the victim's property that is affected by the accident.
When should I file a personal injury claim?
In Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury and wrongful death is two years. This means that you must file a claim within two years of your accident in order to be eligible for compensation. Failure to file your claim within that time period can result in denial of your claim and an inability to obtain compensation from the liable party, so act as quickly as possible.
Why should I hire a personal injury lawyer?
Accident victims are not required by law to retain counsel, but the benefits are immeasurable. Individuals who are represented by an attorney recover far more compensation on average than people who file a claim on their own. Make sure you have the advantage of an attorney's knowledge and ability to represent you with the insurance companies, as well as in the courtroom. Hire The Law Offices of Lauren A. Harris today!
