Helping Clients in Tarrant County Fight For the compensation they deserve
A tort claim is a civil (as opposed to criminal) claim based on a wrongful act committed. So, if you were a victim of a wrongful act that resulted in injury toward yourself and can prove the person or party was liable for damages caused, then you probably have a strong case.
For example, if you were injured in a car accident caused by another driver who was texting at the time of the collision, you may be able to pursue compensation for your damages. These damages can range widely from case to case but often include medical expenses, lost income/wages, property damage, physical pain, emotional distress, and more.

Liability, as it is used in personal injury cases, means that a person or party is responsible for the wrongful act and damages they inflicted on someone else. There are three main ways your Fort Worth personal injury lawyer can prove someone is liable for damages and injuries. These three bases for liability depend on the context in which you were injured.
Negligence is the most general basis for liability, as it can occur in almost any context and usually takes the form of an accident. In a case of negligence, the plaintiff (the victim filing the complaint) must prove that the defendant had a duty of care that a reasonable person would meet in that circumstance and that the defendant did not meet this duty of care which resulted in damages toward the plaintiff.
For example, when driving a motor vehicle, the driver has “a duty to exercise reasonable care” (American Bar Association). If the driver is driving recklessly and, as a result, accidentally hits a pedestrian, biker, or other vehicle and causes damages, then their reckless driving was negligent. Another common example is a slip-and-fall accident. Slip and fall accidents are usually the results of a home or business owner’s negligence in maintaining safe conditions (dry floors, sturdy fences, etc.) that protect the safety of people on the site.
Strict liability is a specific tort claim involving a manufacturer’s responsibility for damages caused by a defective product. To prove the defendant’s liability, the plaintiff needs to confirm that the product caused personal injury or was unreasonably dangerous when it was used as intended.
The most common type of intentional wrongs is a civil suit following criminal charges like assault, battery, rape, or murder. The criminal courts may penalize an individual for assault, but they do so on behalf of the people of Texas, not on behalf of the victim as an individual. For the victim to gain restitution for medical bills, therapy, and other damages, the victim must file a civil suit.
Damages in Personal Injury Cases
The damages caused by another person, company, or entity’s negligence can be extensive. Restitution for damages usually comes in the form of payment for medical bills, physical therapy, lost wages during recovery time, property damages, insurance deductibles, etc. The damages suffered in your case will depend on what type of accident you suffered, the severity of your injuries, and other relevant factors.
