Decatur Personal Injury Lawyers

Attorneys in North Central Texas for Clients Injured by the Negligence of Others

The team at J.A. Griffin Law Firm, P.C. has personally witnessed the heartbreaking effects that people's careless actions can cause. Life-altering injuries can leave an individual unable to work or care for their children, and they may be unable to participate in activities they had previously enjoyed or get the most out of their lives and their relationships with loved ones. It is important to make sure that justice is served for those who have had their lives devastated due to the actions of others. When someone is hurt due to another person's negligence, they deserve to be compensated for any damages caused by the injury.

Types of Personal Injury Matters in Texas

When a person's careless or negligent actions cause others to suffer physical injuries, emotional trauma, or other forms of harm, a personal injury claim can be an effective way for victims to seek justice and receive financial compensation. This may be an option in many scenarios—from auto accidents and bicycle crashes to pedestrian injuries—and compensation may be available for anyone who has experienced damages that occurred because of someone else's negligence.

In addition to motor vehicle collisions, personal injuries can take place in a variety of other situations. When a property owner neglects to address hazardous conditions or flaws on their premises, they put visitors at an unnecessary risk of suffering serious injuries. In situations where property owners failed to protect the safety of visitors, people injured on their premises may seek compensation through what is known as a premises liability claim. Other scenarios where premises liability may be a factor include dog bites and slip-and-fall injuries.

J.A. Griffin Law Firm, P.C. is here to fight for justice in cases where someone else's negligence has caused you or your loved ones to suffer harm. We can help clients who have endured bone fractures, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), spinal cord injuries, disfiguring wounds, whiplash, severe burns, soft tissue injuries, and other forms of physical or emotional harm.

Pursuing Compensation for Different Types of Damages

In a personal injury case, the financial losses and other forms of harm sustained by victims are known as damages. The compensation an injured person or the family members of a person who was wrongfully killed can receive will depend on how severe a person's injuries were and the financial effects of an accident or injury. Settlements or jury verdicts in these types of cases may cover damages such as:

  • All medical expenses related to an injury, including emergency care provided by an ambulance or hospital, surgery, ongoing care from doctors or specialists, rehabilitation costs, medications, and home modifications and assistive devices needed to address permanent disabilities
  • Income a victim was unable to receive while recovering, as well as loss of future income-earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life and harm to personal relationships
  • Funeral expenses in wrongful death cases

Representation When Filing Insurance Claims

As you work to recover from a serious injury, it may seem like a good idea to accept settlement offers proposed by insurance companies. However, these companies often do their best to minimize costs as much as possible when paying out compensation to claimants. If you agree to a settlement without a full understanding of how you have been affected or what you should be entitled to receive, the amount you receive may not cover all of your expenses, and you may be left holding the bill for medical costs or other expenses you may encounter in the future.

At J.A. Griffin Law Firm, P.C., we do not take the same detached, impersonal approach to injury cases that large insurance companies do. Instead, our team puts your needs first, and we go above and beyond to ensure you receive the full amount of compensation you need. We understand how difficult this time is for you, which is why we strive to make the claims process as easy as possible while fighting to ensure you will have the financial resources you need to recover as much as possible.
