How an El Paso Personal Injury Attorney Can Help
As seasoned personal injury lawyers, we utilize our years of experience to help you navigate the legal process. We can help you with:
- Dog Bites: While dogs are widely considered “man’s best friend,” they can be unpredictable. When threatened, they often attack, resulting in painful and scarring dog bites. If you were bitten by a dog, our dog bite lawyers can help you build a case and get compensation for your injuries.
- Slip and Fall Cases: If you’ve slipped and fallen due to someone else’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation. Business owners and property managers are responsible for keeping their premises safe and warning of possible dangers. When they fail to do so, and you are injured as a result, you can seek damages.
- Car and Truck Accidents: Accidents happen every day on Texas roadways. If you were injured in a car or 18-wheeler accident due to the negligence of the other driver, they may be liable for your injuries as well as damages sustained to your vehicle. An El Paso personal accident lawyer can help you build a case and get the compensation you deserve.
- Wrongful Death: If a loved one wrongly passed away due to the negligence of another person or establishment, working with a wrongful death lawyer to hold the party responsible for their actions can bring you and your family justice and closure.
- Motorcycle and Pedestrian Accidents – Severely injured victims are often motorcyclists and pedestrians because they are largely unprotected in the event of an accident. If you were seriously injured in an accident while riding or walking, we can help you secure compensation for your injuries and other losses.
How to Know If You Have a Personal Injury Claim
Following an accident, you’ll want to determine if your case qualifies as a personal injury lawsuit or claim. If you do NOT have a valid lawsuit or claim, you will generally work directly with an insurance company and NOT a personal injury lawyer. Here are the three simple elements of a personal injury lawsuit or claim:
- Did you suffer a personal injury and not just property damage?
- A personal injury may be considered an injury to the body, mind, or emotions. It can be physical or psychological damage.
- If your accident resulted in property damage but didn’t cause any injuries, you will likely want to work directly with your insurance provider.
- Were your injuries provoked by the negligence of another entity or person/persons?
- An entity may include a business, government agency, association, organization, etc.
- The law defines negligence as failing to behave with a level of care that a reasonable person would have exercised under the same circumstances.
- There are four legal components to proving a negligence claim:
- Duty: The defendant had the legal obligation to act a certain way toward the plaintiff under the situation.
- Breach: The defendant breached that duty by failing to act in that manner.
- Causation: The defendant’s actions were the legal cause of injury.
- Damages: The defendant’s actions resulted in injury or harm to the plaintiff, and monetary damages are needed to remedy their losses.
- Are there recoverable damages?
- Recoverable damages may include personal or financial harm that compensation can rectify.
- “Damages” is the legal term for money awarded to an injured person to compensate for their losses and injuries.
If the answer is “yes” to all three questions, you likely have a valid case. While many factors play a part in the outcome of your claim or lawsuit, our experienced personal injury attorneys will help guide you in the right direction while explaining your rights and options.

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit vs. Negotiating a Claim
There are two ways of seeking financial compensation. You can initiate a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party or file a personal injury insurance claim with their insurance company.
The nature of your case will determine the best option. For example, if your vehicle was damaged, you must first notify your insurance company and file a claim. It’s important to do this within 24 to 48 hours after the accident. You’ll also need to collect the other party’s insurance information.
If you cannot negotiate a fair settlement with your insurance company, you might need to file a personal injury lawsuit to recover damages. Insurance claims typically do not result in the full recovery of damages when injuries are involved. You may have accrued hefty medical bills or lost wages due to your temporary or permanent inability to return to work. These losses are often not covered in an insurance claim settlement, so filing a personal injury lawsuit may be necessary.
Do not get overwhelmed by your situation. Simply give us a call, and we will guide you in the right direction. If we handle your personal injury case, you can be confident in our ability to recover your damages.
