How a Texas Personal Injury Lawyer Pursues Your Compensation

- Lost Wages – when you miss work due to your injuries
- Lost Future Income – when you cannot continue with your chosen profession
- Pain and Suffering
- Loss of Consortium – when a loved one has been killed, or their quality of life has been so diminished that your relationship with them has suffered
- Punitive Damages – meant to punish the wrongdoer for his/her actions
At Shamieh Law, we have recovered over $100 million in damages for our clients and will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.

We are here to help you recover compensation to make you and your family whole again in the eyes of the law.
When fighting for justice on your behalf, your Texas lawyer will work passionately to prove the other party was fully at fault. If your actions contributed to the accident in any way, the modified comparative negligence rule in Texas allows you to still seek damages if the other party is at least 51% at fault.
Texas Statute of Limitations: Don’t Miss Deadlines
In Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years from the accident date. This means that a plaintiff must file their civil lawsuit within two years from when the injury occurred to recove. However, this rule has certain exceptions, such as if the injured party is a minor or if they were injured due to medical malpractice. In these cases, the statute of limitations may be extended beyond two years.
Texas Negligence Laws
Texas follows a modified comparative negligence law, which allows you to recover damages even if you are partially to blame for the accident. Should your case go to trial, the jury or judge will assign different levels of blame to all parties, defendants and plaintiffs, before awarding damages accordingly.
Under this system, an injured party can recover damages if they are less than 50% responsible for the injury-causing incident. If the injured party’s negligence exceeds 50%, they are barred from recovering any damages. Also, whatever percent is attributed to your negligence will reduce any amount a jury rewards you by the percent they deemed you to be at fault.

Getting help from an experienced Texas car accident attorney is critical before the two-year statute of limitations expires. Otherwise, you’ll likely miss your chance at getting full justice and recouping your losses from property damage, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
