Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle in Texas

Our Texas personal injury lawyers have experience trying cases in numerous practice areas, including:

Proving Liability

In Texas, a person injured by the wrongful acts of another can file a personal injury claim. Most personal injury cases are based on a negligence theory. Negligence is the failure of another to act as a reasonable person would under the circumstances. 

Texas personal injury attorneys prove negligence by establishing the following elements:

  • The other party owed a duty not to cause you harm
  • They breached their duty to you
  • The wrongful acts directly caused your injury
  • Your injury would not have occurred if not for the wrongful acts
  • You suffered damages 

Proving your case and knowing whom to sue is often complicated. Our knowledge of Texas law and proven experience in and out of the courtroom helps ensure the law is on your side. 

Statute of Limitations in Texas

You do not have to manage the aftermath of your accident alone. The Texas truck accident lawyers at the Lanier Law Firm may be able to help you recover significant compensation. We work on a contingency fee agreement, meaning you pay nothing for our services until we win a successful settlement or verdict.
