How Are Personal Injury Settlements Calculated After a Traffic Accident in Texas?

At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our Houston car accident attorneys know that our clients are consumed by a significant amount of stress and anxiety after they have been hurt in a Texas traffic collision.

First, they may be overwhelmed by their injuries, and the fallout that comes with them. How are they going to drive, pick up their kids, or enjoy the quality of life they had before the crash? Next, their minds race to catch up to the reality they may be out of work for quite some time. How are they going to pay their medical bills and household expenses without a paycheck?

Our Harris County personal injury lawyers realize how upsetting these circumstances are, and we want to help each of our clients fully understand how their cases are evaluated for financial recovery. Each client we represent has unique needs, based on their injuries and overall damages, which requires a customized assessment of their case’s overall value. That is why we are here.

What Type of Compensation Can I Pursue After a Texas Car Accident with Injuries?

In Texas, vehicle collision settlements are typically comprised of two types of damages: Economic and Non-Economic.

Economic Damages are those that are valued by their tangible, monetary losses, and may include:

  • Current and Future Medical Expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Lost Earning Capacity
  • Rehabilitation Costs
  • Household Services

Non-economic Damages are those that are valuable by their intangible losses, and may include:

  • Pain and Suffering
  • Emotional Hardship
  • Disability
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life
  • Loss of Consortium

The at-fault driver’s insurance company will use a computer program to calculate your losses by inputting the total cost of medical treatment, the type of injury, and the severity of the injury, to reduce your important case to fall within a settlement range.

At the Hollingworth Law Firm, our skilled Houston auto accident lawyers will assess your unique case using our investigative resources, knowledge, impeccable negotiating skills, and experience in developing winning cases to ensure your settlement claim is not undervalued.

While an estimated 96% of all personal injury cases end in a settlement outside of the courtroom, our law firm founder, Steve Hollingworth, has been the lead attorney in over 50 jury trials as lead counsel in over a dozen different Texas counties.

Should your case go to trial, we will be ready to aggressively pursue the positive outcome you deserve in front of a judge and/or jury.
