Can Personal Injury Cases Settle Before Trial?

Yes. Most personal injury lawsuits settle out of court. It is estimated that up to 95% of personal injury cases settle before trial. An insurance settlement means getting cash in your hands as soon as possible so you can recover.

If your attorney handles the settlement negotiations well, you should get a fair settlement. Attempting to negotiate a settlement yourself after a serious accident is usually a mistake. Your attorney knows what your case is worth and how to settle with tough insurance companies.

When the settlement is negotiated effectively by the attorney, you can receive compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Car repairs
  • Rehabilitation
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost earnings
  • The financial losses your family has suffered

Most injured clients get more compensation in a settlement than a jury verdict. Injured people may lose in court, so a settlement is often the best option. Settling means not paying upfront legal expenses; legal fees are taken from the settlement.

Is Texas an At-Fault State?

Is important to know the type of state you live in is critical because it affects how you pursue a personal injury case.

Drivers in many states must file a personal injury claim with their personal auto insurance company after an accident. These states often have Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance that covers the first few thousand dollars of your damages. In other states, you file a claim with the at-fault driver’s policy.

Texas is an at-fault state. It allows you to hold the person liable for damages. Your attorney can file a personal injury lawsuit if the liable party doesn’t have enough insurance coverage.

Because Texas is an at-fault state, you need to show the other party who caused the accident to win the case. That is why it is vital to select an experienced Austin personal injury attorney to represent you.

What is Comparative Negligence in Texas Injury Law?

Comparative negligence is a legal idea where liability for an accident is divided between those liable for the incident. The law assigns a portion of responsibility to each person who was involved. However, in some accidents, only one person is responsible.

A driver rear-ends you at a traffic light, and you have back and whiplash injuries. You were sitting at the traffic light when the other driver smashed into you. So, you should receive full compensation.

However, what if someone runs a light and hits you, but you were texting on your phone and driving? The insurance company might conclude you were 30% responsible for the accident. Comparative negligence doctrine says your compensation will be reduced by 30%.

Also, Texas has a 51% rule. This means if you are 51% or more responsible for the accident, you cannot recover damages in a claim or lawsuit. Thus, you cannot be more than 50% responsible for the incident to receive compensation.
