Liability

Winning any personal injury case begins by establishing who is liable for your injuries and damages. In other words: Who is at fault? This question is made more complex by Texas law, which allows juries to apportion liability on a percentage basis. For example, in a given case, it’s quite possible that a jury could conclude that the Defendant was only 75% liable and that you are 25% liable. In that case, the Defendant would only be responsible for 75% of your injuries and damages. If there were 3 parties involved, a jury could apportion liability to 3 different people. The attorneys with Todd E. Tkach, P.C. have a clear understanding of the law and know how to present evidence to establish 100% liability on the negligent person.

 

 

Damages

After liability is established, a jury may award monetary compensation for injuries and damages. But, injuries and damages must be proved. Proof of damages requires the knowledge of what types of damages are recognized in Texas law and how to acquire and present the evidence so that it will be admissible in a court of law. Some of the more common types of damages include, past medical expenses, future medical expenses, pain and suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, past and future impairment and loss of consortium. The attorneys with Todd E. Tkach, P.C. fully know and understand that a demonstration of damages is critical to a recovery on a personal injury case.

 

Frequently Asked Questions about our Personal Injury Practice

  • Why should I hire an attorney for my injury case?

    With most personal injury cases, the negligent party has insurance to pay for all injuries and damages. However, the goal of insurance companies is to pay you as little as possible. After all, that’s how they make their money. Insurance companies have highly trained insurance adjusters to advance their goal of paying out as little as possible. You need someone on your side with knowledge of the law, and the skill and experience to go toe to toe with these trained professionals.

  • How much will an attorney cost me?

    We represent you based on a contingency fee agreement. That means that you don’t have to pay us anything unless and until we get a money recovery for you. That includes attorneys’ fees, court costs and expenses. We pay all costs and expenses necessary to pursue your case out of our own pocket. Reimbursement for our attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses, if any, will only come from an agreed upon money settlement or a jury award of money compensation. If we don’t receive any money on your case, you don’t owe us anything. No matter how much money we spent to pursue your case.

  • Do you charge for office consultations?

    No. We never charge for any consultation on personal injury cases. Moreover, your consultation will include a full case analysis and evaluation.

  • Do I have to come to your office for a consultation?

    No. We will meet you at your home, place of business, or any location of your choosing for your free consultation and case evaluation.

  • Should I accept the insurance company’s offer of settlement?

    Generally, the answer is NO. In many cases, skilled insurance adjusters will immediately contact injured victims and will offer them a relatively small amount of money to quickly settle. Although the immediate cash is enticing and may even seem fair, it usually isn’t. It usually takes considerable time to fully realize all injuries and damages. Accepting a quick cash settlement prevents full understanding of injuries and damages, and cuts off any further pursuit of your claim.

  • Can I see any doctor for my injuries?

    Yes. However, it’s important to see physicians who are specialized in the type of injury that you have. Only then can we understand the full extent of the injury, including the degree of recovery, the time period for recovery and the immediate and future costs of the necessary medical care.

  • Can you refer me to doctors for treatment?

    Yes. We work with many physicians and can refer you to the doctor most appropriate for the injuries that you have. Additionally, the doctors we refer you to will treat you based on a Letter of Protection from us. That means that you don’t have to pay them out of your pocket for the medical care they provide. Instead, they will wait until your cases settles and will accept funds from your settlement to satisfy their bill.
