Who can bring a personal injury lawsuit?

September 15, 2009

If you have recently been injured in an accident, you may be wondering if you can bring a personal injury lawsuit. In many cases, a person who has been hurt because of someone else’s negligent actions is eligible to bring a personal injury lawsuit.

To be eligible to bring a Texas personal injury lawsuit, certain basic requirements must be met. First you must have suffered an injury, which can be either physical or emotional. It must be a true and valid injury. For example, you could likely bring a Texas personal injury lawsuit if you slip and fall on a puddle of water in a store and break your ankle. However, you wouldn’t be eligible to bring a personal injury lawsuit if, when slipping and falling, you simply got your pants wet.

Next, you have to show that someone who owed you a duty of care breached that duty of care and thereby caused your injury. Usually this is based on negligence, which means that the other person failed to act with the same care that a reasonable person would under the same circumstances.

Last, you must have suffered a financial loss as a result of the injury. In the example above, for instance, you would have incurred medical bills in order to receive treatment for your broken ankle.

Not every injury qualifies for a lawsuit, however. A Texas personal injury lawyer, such as the experienced and helpful attorneys of Fears | Nachawati, can review the facts of your case and determine whether you have a good claim.
