Find Out How We Can Help You

Every day, thousands of people are injured, whether at work, in a car accident, in the park, or elsewhere. While some people are lucky enough to suffer nothing more than a minor injury, others can suffer catastrophic injuries that will impact their lives for many years to come, including long-term disability.

At Carabin Shaw , we handle several areas of personal injury claims, from truck accidents to slip and fall accidents and more.

Cases we commonly encounter involve:

  • Auto injury accidents
  • Slip and fall
  • Dog attacks
  • Workplace injury
  • Truck accidents
  • Construction injury
  • Defective products
  • Oilfield injury accidents
  • Wrongful death cases
  • Work related injuries

With any personal injury claims, we will consider two main issues; liability and damages. With these cases, you need to be able to demonstrate that a third party is liable for the injuries you sustained in the accident. You will also need to assess the nature and extent of the damages.

It is an often-complex process that requires in-depth knowledge of local Odessa laws. We understand what it takes to prepare our clients' cases, and we are not afraid to put in the hard work to craft a successful strategy on your behalf.

Filing for Damages Following a Personal Injury Accident

For those who don't have extensive knowledge of the law in Texas, knowing when to file a personal injury claim can be confusing. Victims are often left wondering whether or not they have a case and how much that claim is worth.

The best way to determine whether or not you have a personal injury case is to speak to a qualified personal injury lawyer. However, we have answered some of the most common personal injury questions we get asked by our clients so that you can gain a better understanding.

Who Can File for Damages After an Accident in Odessa?

If you have been injured because of another person's negligent or reckless behavior, you have the option to start a claim for recovery. You may be able to receive compensation if you are able to fully document and demonstrate the other party's liability, and you did not play a part in contributing to the injuries and damages sustained.

What Damages Can I Get in a Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury lawsuit can involve financial, physical, emotional, and property damages. Damages will vary from case to case, so to determine what you are entitled to, you should seek out relevant legal services to help with your individual case.

Economic damages can include past and future medical expenses, loss of past and future earning capacity, and loss of household services. Non-economic damages include physical impairment, past and future pain and suffering and mental anguish, disfigurement, and loss of consortium.

What Is the Statute of Limitations in Texas?

All states set their own limit on the amount of time an accident victim has to file a personal injury claim, which is known as the statute of limitations. In the state of Texas, the limit is set at two years from the date of your injury.

If you have suffered an injury as the result of another party's reckless or negligent behavior, then you must file your action within that two-year period, or you could lose your right to bring a claim. While there are some exceptions to the statute of limitations, you should not leave things to chance. Get in touch with a reputable law firm as soon as possible so you can start the process and give your lawyers enough time to build a strong case.

Don't Let an Insurance Company Undervalue Your Claim

Most people wouldn't know where to start if they suffered a personal injury in an accident where somebody else was to blame. It's not something many people plan for, so when it happens to them, it comes as a big shock.

Insurance companies tend to make the most of this lack of knowledge and planning and seek to make a quick claim settlement with the victim. By doing so, they can usually minimize the amount of money paid out. The last thing you need when you're dealing with piling medical bills is to settle your claim for far less than its real value.

Our law offices offer a free personal injury case evaluation, so you have a better understanding of your case and what constitutes fair compensation in your situation. We want you to receive the full amount you are entitled to from the insurance company and will aggressively fight to protect your rights.

Remember, it is likely that your insurance company will be in contact with you once you start a claim, but you should refrain from speaking to them directly without consulting your lawyer first. If you give them too much information, they may use this to delay or minimize your payout. Always speak to your attorney to determine whether sharing or signing anything proposed by the insurance company is in your best interest.
