When Should You Call Our Dallas Injury Lawyers?

When you have been hurt in any type of accident, your first priority should be your health and well-being. Before you do anything else, make certain you get all the medical attention you need. You should then contact our offices as soon as possible. The sooner you retain one of our experienced personal injury attorneys, the sooner we can start to build your case and protect your rights. The longer you wait, the greater the risk that insurance companies and defense attorneys will argue that your injuries were not serious or were caused by some intervening event. You also run the risk that evidence will be lost, witnesses will become unavailable or memories will fade.

What Types of Compensation Can You Recover in a Dallas Personal Injury Lawsuit?

When you have been injured because of someone else's negligence, you have a right to recover damages for all actual losses sustained in or as a result of the accident. Some of those damages will be easy to determine, such as lost wages and income, unreimbursed medical expenses, and damage to or loss of property. However, you also have a right to seek compensation for losses that are not as easily calculated, including:

  • Any pain and suffering you experience because of injuries suffered
  • Any loss of companionship or consortium resulting from the accident or your injuries
  • The loss of enjoyment of life caused by the accident

Why Should I Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer?

When you're hurt because of the negligent acts of another person, you want to recover as much as you can to compensate for your injuries. Because you'll have to pay a percentage of your damage award to the lawyer who represents you, you may think it will be in your best interests to handle the claim yourself. That would be a big mistake, for a number of reasons.

An experienced Personal Injury Lawyer in Dallas, TX will know when a settlement offer is unfair and will be willing and able to take your case to trial to get the compensation you need and deserve.

If the other party was clearly at fault for causing the accident—for example, if they ran a red light and hit you broadside—you may think you have an open-and-shut case. Unfortunately, facts can be easily manipulated. A skilled lawyer can make the jury forget about the facts and find ways to pin the blame on you.

You need an experienced Personal Injury Lawyer in Dallas TX on your side to protect your interests.

DALLAS ACCIDENT STATISTICS

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released its first data about motor vehicle safety during the COVID-19 crisis and the results are startling. Data collected by the NHTSA indicates that the average speed on the nation's roads increased during 2019 (including more incidences of drivers operating vehicles at extreme speeds). NHTSA also found indications that more drivers were willing to be on the road without their seat belt securely fastened, as well as a greater incidence of people drinking or using controlled substances and getting behind the wheel.

The Most Common Types of Personal Injuries in Dallas

In Dallas, as with the rest of the country, the most frequent cause of personal injury is motor vehicle accidents, including car, truck, motorcycle, mass transit and pedestrian accidents. Bailey & Galyen aggressively fights for the rights of anyone hurt in a traffic accident, whether as a driver, passenger or bystander. Other common types of personal injury lawsuits in Dallas include claims of medical malpractice, premises liability (slips and falls), dog bites and animal attacks, workplace mishaps and construction site injuries.

How Can the Dallas Personal Injury Lawyers at Bailey & Galyen Help You Resolve Your Claim?

The proven personal injury attorneys at Bailey & Galyen will take care of every detail related to your legal claims:

  • We'll conduct a thorough investigation of your accident, traveling to the scene, if necessary. We'll question all necessary witnesses or parties, and will carefully review all evidence, so that we can build the most compelling case for your full financial recovery
  • We'll work closely with expert witnesses, including accident reconstruction specialists, engineers, medical professionals, financial projections specialists and others, so that we can present clear and understandable evidence to the judge and jury
  • We'll prepare and file all pleadings and other documents required to prosecute your claim
  • We'll be your advocate in hearings, depositions, meetings and other proceedings, working zealously to protect your rights

What Can You Recover in A Dallas Personal Injury Claim?

You have the right to recover a financial award for personal injury and property losses, including:

  • Past and future lost wages and income
  • Any costs of medical care not paid for or covered by your insurance
  • Your inability to engage in ordinary activities of daily living, such as walking, sitting, running, standing or taking care of yourself, due to your injuries
  • The inability to participate in activities that previously brought joy or meaning to your life, due to your injuries
  • Any persistent pain or discomfort resulting from the accident or your injuries
  • The loss of companionship or consortium with family members because of your injuries
  • Any property losses, as well as the cost of repairing any property damage

What Must You Prove to Win a Dallas Personal Injury Lawsuit?

As a general rule, personal injury lawsuits are based on a legal theory of negligence. To prove negligence, you must demonstrate to the jury, by the weight of the evidence, that:

  • The defendant did not act as a reasonable person would have in the same circumstances
  • That the failure by the defendant to act reasonably "caused" an accident
  • That, as a consequence of the accident, you sustained "actual" losses

The determination as to whether the defendant's behavior was reasonable is determined by the jury, on a case-by-case basis. You must show that the accident would not have happened, had the defendant acted reasonably, and you must show that the accident and injuries suffered were "reasonably foreseeable" as a result of the failure to act reasonably. In addition, you cannot recover compensation for any losses covered by insurance.

How Soon after an Accident Must You File a Dallas Personal Injury Lawsuit?

The time frame for filing a personal injury lawsuit is governed by a law known as the Statute of Limitations. In Dallas, you must file your personal injury claim within two years of the date of your injury, or of the discovery of your injury, if it was not immediately apparent. If you fail to do so, you will likely lose all your rights to recovery.

WHY CHOOSE BAILEY & GALYEN TO HANDLE YOUR INJURY CASE?

Even if you're not planning on filing a lawsuit for any losses incurred, it's a wise move to retain a lawyer to help ensure you get the benefits to which you are entitled from your insurer. Insurance companies have a vested interest in paying you as little as possible—it's how they maximize their profits. Without competent legal assistance, you can expect delays, denials or attempts to pay you less than you should receive.

A few of the clear advantages to hiring one of our experienced lawyers to handle your car accident claim are:

  • We will make certain you file your complaint in a timely manner
  • Our lawyers will help you recover compensation for all your losses
  • Our experienced lawyers will help you effectively prove the elements of negligence

What Types of Dallas Personal Injury Claims Does Bailey & Galyen Handle?

At Bailey & Galyen, we have extensive experience handling all types of personal injury claims, including:

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO FILE A PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM

The statute of limitations for a particular legal claim varies based on the type of claim and the state in which the claim is filed. In Dallas, Texas, the statute of limitations on personal injury claims is two years from the date of the injury. If you fail to file within that time period, you are likely to lose your right to compensation for your losses.

DETERMINING NEGLIGENCE IN A PERSONAL INJURY CASE

To succeed with a personal injury lawsuit based on negligence, you must convince a jury that:

  • The defendant (person from whom you seek compensation) did not act as a reasonable person would have under the circumstance. Such a failure to act reasonably is also commonly referred to as a breach of the standard of care;
  • The defendant's breach of the standard of care caused an accident or event; and
  • Led you to suffer "actual losses"

How Much Will It Cost for an Experienced Dallas Personal Injury Lawyer?

At Bailey & Galyen, we handle all personal injury claims on a contingent fee basis. That means that we don't charge any attorney fees unless we recover compensation for your losses. You, will, however, be expected to pay other costs associated with your lawsuit, including filing fees and the costs of depositions.
