A Dedicated Legal Advocate For The Injured In Texas
A serious injury can bring every aspect of your life to a grinding halt. You may be unable to work, unable to afford your medical bills and unable to enjoy time with your family due to the stress and pain you are feeling. If your injuries were preventable and caused by someone else’s negligent actions, you need and deserve compensation.
At The Law Office of Bradrick J. Collins, PLLC, I offer experienced and caring representation in personal injury and wrongful death litigation to clients in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and throughout Texas. I am ready to vigorously represent your interests in or out of the courtroom.
Fighting For Compensation After A Devastating Accident
If you were seriously injured by the negligent actions of another person, company or organization, I can help you seek compensation for things like medical bills, lost wages, disability and more. I’m ready to take nearly any type of personal injury case, including those involving:
- Car wrecks
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle crashes
- Pedestrian and bicyclist injuries
- Slip-and-fall accidents and other premises liability claims
- Dangerous and defective consumer products
- Wrongful death
Cases alleging wrongful death are very similar to personal injury cases, except that the injuries were severe enough to cause the victim’s death. Therefore, a representative for the deceased serves as the plaintiff. If you are the surviving spouse, child or parent of someone who died because of another’s negligence, I can help you seek justice and compensation in civil court.
What Happens When Fault For The Accident Is Shared?
In a scenario such as a car accident, you may have been partially at fault for the crash or your own injuries, albeit far less liable than the other driver. Thankfully, you can still recover damages (compensation). Texas recognizes a legal principle called comparative negligence. If you were deemed to be 10% at fault for a crash (because you were driving above the posted speed limit), you could still sue the other driver. If you win your case or settle, your total monetary award will be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you (10 percent, in this case).
There is one caveat, however. Texas uses modified comparative negligence. This essentially means that If you were more than 50% at fault for the accident or injuries, you would lose your case and be unable to collect any damages. This isn’t typically a problem, however, as fault is apparent or obvious in most cases.
