I had a really good experience working with Jimmy Sunosky, Accident & Injury Trial Attorney located in Houston TX, who represented me in a Motor Vehicle Accident litigation. He was a pleasure to work with and had that ‘family touch’ – a genuinely good guy. He was professional, always responded when I reached out with a question, always made it easy for me to pass receipts, reports and docs back and forth. The best part was he went to bat for me and negotiated a more-than-fair settlement. I highly recommend him – and that’s coming from someone who has worked in a legal office (when I was younger), and found it to be a very high-paced, stressful environment that could change on a dime. I felt very well taken care of and appreciated his easy-going, steady and kind, ethical demeanor. Thanks for everything, Jimmy!
Jimmy Sunosky Is an amazing lawyer and he has great experience on both sides and knows his stuff. He was persistent and fought hard for me with great results. He was able to help me quickly and was very attentive. I really appreciate him for everything. Five stars… five stars… five stars!
Jimmy Sunosky was a big help on my case. He gave me great advice and kept me informed each and every step of the way. Made my tough situation a smooth process to get through. I highly recommend him if ever in need.
I had a personal injury in 2019 and my entire life changed. I was uncertain of what my future would look like until I met this team. One thing is to have a lawyer and it’s another thing to have a well seasoned team of experts fighting for you. I was able to contact my lawyers at anytime and during a time of uncertainty communication matters the most. I was always treated like family and never felt that this was just business. I appreciate the attention to detail and devotion this law firm had for me. I most certainly recommend them to anyone who needs a trust worthy team to fight for them. 10 out of 10!!!!!!!!!!!

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