How can I pay for medical bills after an accident in Houston?

If you or someone close to you has been injured in an accident that was not your fault, a Houston personal injury attorney can help seek compensation from the at-fault party or parties to help pay for your injuries. An experienced lawyer can assess the merits of your case and determine how much compensation you can reasonably expect to recover. Depending on your circumstances, this amount may cover your medical bills, damage to property, and other expenses related to the accident.

Personal injury law covers cases including, but not limited to: car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle wrecks, pedestrian accidents, faulty products, slip and falls, medical malpractice, construction accidents, and wrongful death.

What must I prove to get compensation after an accident?

When an accident and resulting harm is caused by a person’s careless or reckless conduct, that person may be liable under the legal theory of negligence. In order to establish negligence, it is necessary to demonstrate the following elements: the defendant owed a legal duty of care to the plaintiff; the defendant breached the legal duty of care owed to the plaintiff; and this breach of duty was a direct cause of the plaintiff’s injury. A duty of care refers to the obligation of every individual to act in a way that a reasonably prudent person would act under the same or similar circumstances.

The goal of a personal injury lawsuit is to compensate the victim and to make sure he or she is not forced to shoulder the burden of the defendant’s negligence alone. As such, Texas law allows the plaintiff to recover economic and non-economic damages such as medical expenses, lost income, rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, emotional distress and any other losses stemming from the accident. In rare cases, a plaintiff may be able to obtain punitive damages if the defendant’s conduct is deemed to be grossly negligent.

If you or a loved one has been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you have rights. A Houston personal injury lawyer can help you recover financial compensation and get back on your feet.

Injured in an accident?

When a person is injured, tort law will govern whether that person may be compensated for the injury, the amount of compensation that may be recovered, as well as which parties will be liable for the injury. Tort law, also known as injury law, comes from federal and state codes, as well as judicial opinions from prior cases. The amount of damages a plaintiff to a personal injury action may receive can be determined by statute, or by a judge or jury. Typical recoveries may include compensatory damages (e.g., lost wages, medical bills, etc.) and in particularly egregious situations, punitive damages. In some cases, a plaintiff may recover certain non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, loss of consortium, or loss of enjoyment of life.

Personal injury lawyers help injured people seek compensation from those who have harmed them. Some injury attorneys focus on a specific type of case, such as truck accidents, car accidents, slip-and-fall injuries, medical malpractice or products liability cases. If a person is injured as a result of criminal behavior, it may be appropriate to pursue a personal injury lawsuit in addition to the state's criminal investigation or prosecution.

Many personal injury attorneys offer a free consultation to evaluate your claim.


Negligence: Failure to use care which a reasonable and prudent person would use under similar circumstances.

Joint and several liability: A legal doctrine that makes each of the parties who are responsible for an injury, liable for all the damages awarded in a lawsuit if the other parties responsible cannot pay.
