Personal Injury Lawyers Who Fight For You
Attorney Chad Jones helps people throughout Texas
After an accident, many people wrongly assume that they are on the hook for their injuries, even if someone else was to blame - and the insurance companies are more than happy to let them think so. That's not right. That's not justice. That's why you deserve personal injury attorney Chad E. Jones fighting for your legal rights.
Every day, people are hurt due to the actions of others. Car crashes are the most common example, but they’re far from the only one. You may have been hurt when a poorly maintained stairway collapsed, bitten by a dog that was not properly restrained or injured by falling merchandise in a store.
What is a personal injury claim?
Broadly speaking, personal injury law is the area of law that focuses on harm done by the negligence of individuals or companies. If you want to file a personal injury claim, you will likely need to prove that someone owed you a duty of care and breached that duty, causing financial loss. Chad Jones Law, P.C. has helped thousands of victims build strong cases and recover the compensation they deserve.
For instance, the owner of a store has a responsibility to keep the premises safe for shoppers, vendors and others who visit the store - this is the owner's duty of care. If a shopper slips and falls on an unmarked wet floor or is hurt when a heavy object falls off a shelf, that shopper can file an insurance claim against the business. The store is said to have been negligent in this case because it did not take reasonable and appropriate steps to keep the premises safe.
Most of the damages (financial compensation) awarded in personal injury cases are called compensatory damages, which means they are intended to compensate the victim for losses sustained due to the injury. This includes measurable financial losses such as medical bills and lost wages while recovering from an injury. Compensatory damages can also include more subjective - but still very real - losses such as pain and suffering and emotional distress.
