HOW TO DETERMINE NEGLIGENCE IN PERSONAL INJURY CASES

Personal injury cases are typically based on a negligence standard, and plaintiffs must demonstrate that the defendants' conduct amounted to negligence in order to succeed in their personal injury claims. To establish negligence, the following four elements must be proven:

That the defendant had a duty of care to the plaintiff. This is not a difficult standard to prove because everyone has a duty to act reasonably when engaging in any type of conduct or activity that has the potential to harm another person. For example, if you are backing out of a driveway, you have a responsibility to look behind you and ensure that your path is clear so that you do not collide with any person or vehicle that may be in your path.

That the defendant failed to fulfill their duty of care. In most cases, the standard for determining whether or not the defendant breached their duty of care is reasonableness. A plaintiff must present evidence demonstrating that in a similar situation, a reasonable person would not have engaged in the same conduct or behavior as the defendant. In some cases, such as a medical malpractice case, the standard may be different, as a plaintiff must demonstrate that the defendant's treatment and care fell below the medical standard of care.

That the plaintiff was harmed as a result of the defendant's breach of duty. A defendant will not be held liable for breaching a duty of care unless the plaintiff can demonstrate actual injuries and damages.

That the defendant's breach of duty caused the plaintiff's injuries. Finally, the plaintiff must demonstrate that the injuries would not have occurred if the defendant had not breached his or her duty of care. In other words, the plaintiff's injuries were caused by the defendant's actions or inaction.

WHAT IS THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS ON PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS IN TEXAS?

The statute of limitations in Texas for personal injury cases varies according to the type and specific circumstances of your case. In general, injured parties in Texas have two years from the date of injury to file a claim. If your case involves a government entity you will have a shorter filing deadline. Because there are numerous circumstances and factors to consider in your claim, it is critical that you consult with an attorney as soon as possible following your accident. This prevents you from missing any applicable deadlines and, as a result, losing your right to compensation from the responsible party.

Doug is a great attorney. He took care of my auto accident claim promptly, and answered any questions I had. I also had one of my hospital bills go into collections for non-payment. I was able to contact Doug a year after the accident, and received a copy of the check the hospital claimed they didn’t receive. I highly recommend this guy. David J.

Mr. Goyen helped me take on my own insurance company, the great and mighty Allstate. My prior firm basically dumped me, with a permanent injury because the case didn’t meet their financial guidelines for a settlement. I was a bicycle rider hit by a car driver at an intersection, and Allstate was the company on BOTH SIDES OF THE CLAIM. My own insurance company tried to throw me under the bus to limit their payout! Without Mr. Goyen’s help, I would have been left with NOTHING! I had thousands of dollars in unpaid medical bills, unable to receive treatment to correct the issue. He was unafraid and helped me get the best settlement I could … I am tremendously thankful! Pamala M.
