What Is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

A personal injury lawsuit arises when an individual suffers harm due to the negligent, reckless, or intentional conduct of another party. The injured party, known as the plaintiff, can seek compensation or damages from the responsible party (the defendant). The personal injury lawyers at Hernandez Sunosky will leverage their skills and experience to prove the necessary elements of negligence and handle your claim professionally and diligently. You must prove the following elements to have a successful claim:

Duty of Care

The defendant owed you a duty of care, meaning that they had a legal obligation to act in a reasonably prudent manner to prevent harm or injury to others. The specific duty of care depends on the circumstances of the case. For example, drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles safely and avoid causing injury to other motorists, passengers, and pedestrians.


You suffered actual damages as a result of the defendant’s breach of duty (e.g. medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and future financial losses).


The defendant’s actions or negligence directly caused or substantially contributed to your injuries. This can be proven through medical records, expert testimony, or other forms of evidence that connect the defendant’s conduct to your injuries.

Breach of Duty

The defendant breached their duty of care by failing to act reasonably or by engaging in negligent or intentional misconduct.

How Much Is My Injury Claim Worth?

No two personal injury claims are the same, and the available damages depend on the nature of the accident and the severity of your injuries. However, you may be entitled to economic and non-economic damages:

  • Economic damages will compensate you for actual financial losses, such as medical expenses, rehabilitative costs, lost wages (present and future), and property damage.
  • Non-economic damages will cover intangible losses like pain and suffering, permanent disability/disfigurement, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.

Notably, Texas follows a modified comparative negligence rule. Under this rule, you can seek compensation as long as you are less than 51 percent at fault for your injuries and damages. But you cannot file a claim or lawsuit if you are 51 percent liable or greater.

Also, your recovery will be reduced by a percentage of your liability. For example, if your damages are assessed at $100,0000, but a court or claims adjuster determines that you are 30 percent at fault for your injuries, your award will be reduced by 30 percent to $70,000. We know what’s at stake and will do what it takes to limit your liability and win just compensation.
