    "When the judge read the verdict in Martha Salazar’s case ($73 Million), and we learned the jury ordered [the medical device maker] to pay Martha, (we) knew they believed every word she said.  We realized they knew the defendant was truly guilty."

Helping Texans Establish Liability After an Accident

At Matthews & Associates, we take pride in assisting clients throughout every step of their case. Our lawyers offer turn-key legal services to injured Texans to maximize the value of their claims and recover damages. We can fight to hold all liable parties accountable by providing comprehensive representation guiding you through the legal process from start to finish.

Unfortunately, sustaining a wrongful injury isn’t enough to recover compensation. Plaintiffs bear the burden of proof in personal injury lawsuits, meaning that the injured person is responsible for proving that the defendant’s actions resulted in their wrongful injury. Claimants must show by a preponderance of the evidence (e.g., that it is “more likely than not”) that liable parties are directly responsible. 

Our Texas lawyers can help you prove negligence in your case by establishing these core elements: 

  1. Duty of Care: First, you must establish the defendant had a legal duty of care to uphold your safety and well-being.
  2. Breach of Duty: Second, you must prove that the defendant’s negligence or recklessness violated the aforementioned duty of care.
  3. Causation: Third, you must show that the defendant’s actions or inaction directly caused your injuries.
  4. Damages: Lastly, you must establish that the defendant’s negligence resulted in compensatory damages to you.

Recovering Damages in Texas Personal Injury Cases

In personal injury cases, "damages" refer to compensation that injured parties are legally entitled to pursue if they are harmed by negligence. Various types of damages can be recovered in Texas lawsuits, including:

  • Economic damages for financial losses, such as lost earnings, property damage, medical expenses, and hospital bills. 
  • Non-economic damages for non-financial losses, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of consortium, loss of enjoyment of life, and scarring and disfigurement. 

In some instances, punitive damages may also be awarded in cases involving extreme negligence. Unlike the above damages, which are meant to compensate the victim for losses, punitive damages are intended to punish the defendant.
