Helping McAllen Clients Understand Personal Injury Suits & the Civil Litigation Process

personal injury compensation formWhen an individual suffers undue harm because of another party’s negligence or misconduct, they have the right to file a personal injury suit against them. Most of the time personal injury suits can be resolved by negotiation and settlement, but if these efforts fail to bear fruit, civil litigation may become inevitable. In civil litigation, a defendant’s guilt or innocence is not the issue; rather, a plaintiff seeks to establish in court that a defendant’s carelessness or recklessness resulted in unnecessary mental and/or physical suffering. Since this is not a criminal trial, there are no sentences that result from personal injury cases. Instead, if a defendant is deemed to be responsible for having caused harm to a plaintiff, a jury decides how much financial compensation the plaintiff is owed. If you are a resident of Texas who has been grievously injured through no or little fault of your own, we urge you to contact our office as soon as possible.

Offering Superior Legal Services in Personal Injury Cases

Much of our work involves litigation against corporations who are responsible for manufacturing defective or otherwise unsafe products. This area of practice is known as products liability law. However, we are proud to offer exceptional legal representation in a wide range of personal injury cases for Texas residents as well, including, but not limited to:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Premises liability
  • Medical malpractice
  • Workplace accidents
  • Brain injuries
  • Catastrophic injuries

Vehicle Accidents

If another driver causes an accident and you are injured, they should pay for your medical expenses and other subsequent financial hardships. Texas is an “at-fault” insurance state, meaning whoever caused the accident will be held liable for paying the damages. We will help you prove the negligence of the other driver so you are compensated for your injuries.

Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one because of the irresponsible and illegal actions of someone else is possibly the worst outcome of any situation. Though financial compensation cannot undo the damage that has been done, it can offset the costs associated with the accident and bring you a sense of justice and closure. If a member of your family died because of someone’s carelessness, we will help you hold them accountable.

Product Liability

You should be able to use the products you buy without fear of harm or injury. Product designers and manufacturers are responsible for creating safe goods with appropriate safety warnings, but they do not always adhere to these regulations. When they don’t and you become injured, you need an accomplished personal injury attorney to defend your rights as a consumer in court. KARAM LAW FIRM has been doing just that since 1996.

Medical Negligence

Doctors and other healthcare professionals have a legal obligation to do no harm to patients in their care. If they take shortcuts or disregard safety policies, the consequences can be catastrophic or even deadly. If you or a loved one has been injured at the hands of a medical employee, KARAM LAW FIRM can help you hold them accountable for the damage they have caused and compensate you for their mistake.

Securing Fair Compensation for Accident Victims in the State of Texas

Compensation awarded as a result of a personal injury settlement or litigation can be used to address not only economic concerns such as lost wages, property damage, medical bills, and the cost of continued care, but also non-economic concerns that are harder to quantify but no less viable, such as the pain and suffering sustained by a victim as a result of an injurious accident. Schedule a consultation with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney as soon as you have sought medical treatment for your injuries. We’re proud of our reputation for standing up for the rights of injured Texans and we are eager to put our experience to work for you and your family in order to help you obtain the financial compensation you deserve for your ordeal.
