Providing Honest & Reliable Legal Counsel Since 2000

While driving along Parker Road, on Independence Parkway, on the Dallas North Tollway (DNT), or around Plano, in the blink of an eye, you may be involved in a collision, and a car accident can turn your life upside down.

A car accident can have a profound impact on your physical, emotional, and financial health. Physically, an individual may suffer from injuries that range from minor cuts and bruises to severe conditions like broken bones, spinal injuries, or traumatic brain injuries. These injuries can lead to long-term or even permanent disability, affecting the person's ability to work or perform daily activities.

Beyond the physical toll, car accidents often result in significant emotional distress. Victims may experience post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, or fear of driving. The financial burden from medical bills and property damage can further exacerbate this stress.

Because of the impact an accident has on your life, you may consider pursuing a claim. MAS Law can be your ally in handling negotiations or litigations to obtain the compensation you need to move forward. From minor collisions to major accidents, our attorneys have offered steadfast support to countless individuals, working tirelessly to navigate the often-confusing world of car accident law.

Damages Available in a Plano Car Accident Claim

If you've been involved in a car accident in Texas, you may be entitled to claim damages for your losses. These damages are typically categorized into three types: economic damages, non-economic damages, and, in some cases, punitive damages.

Economic damages are intended to compensate for quantifiable financial losses incurred as a result of the accident. This can include:

  • Medical expenses. These include costs for immediate medical care, ongoing treatment, rehabilitation, and any future medical expenses related to the accident.
  • Lost wages. If you're unable to work due to injuries, you can claim lost wages. This also includes reduced earning capacity if your ability to earn has been impacted long-term.
  • Property damage. This covers the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle and any other property damaged in the accident.

Non-economic damages, on the other hand, are related to subjective, non-monetary losses, such as:

  • Pain and suffering. This compensates for the physical pain and discomfort endured as a result of the accident.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life. If your quality of life has diminished due to the accident – say, you're unable to participate in activities you once enjoyed – you may be compensated for this loss.
  • Emotional distress. Victims often experience psychological impacts such as anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These fall under emotional distress.

In extreme cases where the defendant's conduct was grossly negligent or intentional, punitive damages may be awarded. These are not meant to compensate the victim but rather to punish the offender and deter similar behavior in the future.

Are Non-Economic Damages Capped in Texas?

Your non-economic damages will not be capped in a Texas car accident claim. Non-economic damages are typically capped in cases involving medical malpractice or claims made against government entities.

Does Texas Have Comparative Fault Laws?

Yes, Texas also follows a "modified comparative negligence" rule, where your compensation may be reduced by your percentage of fault if you're found partially at fault for the accident. For instance, if you are involved in a collision and are found to have been fiddling with your radio and speeding, you may be considered partially at fault for the accident. The court then assigns you 25% of the fault for the accident, so of the $100,000 settlement, you only receive $75,000.
