Accidents happen every day, often injuring those involved. Sometimes, someone’s negligence causes accidents. If you sustained injuries because of an accident that someone else caused, you might have grounds to file a personal injury claim.

Many kinds of insurance policies protect policyholders against liability, but unfortunately, most insurance carriers don’t want to pay damages in liability-related issues. They often make offers of minimal compensation to accident victims. Injured accident survivors often turn to Fielding Law to represent their interests against greedy insurance companies.

What Is a Personal Injury Claim?

The vast majority of personal injury cases involve negligence. The legal definition of negligence is “a failure to behave with the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have exercised under the same circumstances.” Most of the time, negligence takes the form of an action; however, failing to act is negligence in some cases.

To prove negligence, you must show that:

  • Someone owed you a duty of care.
  • That person failed to provide that duty of care.
  • You sustained injuries in an accident.
  • That person caused the accident due to their negligence and, therefore, your injuries.

As an example, all drivers must safely operate their vehicles to protect themselves and others from the risk of a collision. That is their duty of care. If a driver does anything considered unsafe and causes an accident, he or she is probably guilty of negligence. If so, those injured in the accident may qualify to file a personal injury claim against the responsible party.

If you have a valid personal injury claim, your attorney will assist you in filing liability insurance claims to compensate you for your damages. We also act as your spokesperson with insurance companies to protect your rights.

We can successfully settle most personal injury claims without going to court, winning maximum compensation for our clients. However, we will litigate your case in a civil trial if necessary. Our duty is to keep insurance company representatives from taking advantage of unwary accident victims.

What Should You Do After an Accident?

In any kind of accident involving injuries, those involved should do several things, if possible. If your injuries allow, you need to:

  • Try to assist or at least assess others injured in the same incident.
  • Notify the authorities. Notify the manager if your accident takes place in a business. If your accident is on a roadway, call the police. During your call, tell the operator the number of people involved and what kinds of injuries they have. This allows dispatchers to send appropriate first responders to the accident scene.
  • Use your phone to record as many details as possible of the accident site. These details may include photos and videos of the scene, property damage, wounds, witness statements, skid marks, a hazard that caused a slip and fall, the time of day, weather conditions, and any other pertinent details that can help your attorney build a case for you. Record your own statement as well while the details are fresh in your mind.
  • Accept medical attention if provided. If no medical personnel respond to your accident site, see a medical professional as soon as possible after you leave. This is vital because it allows for a detailed assessment of your physical condition immediately after the accident. It can also save your life.
  • Contact a personal injury lawyer. Evidence can disappear over time, and witness recollections of the accident may become less accurate as time passes. Hiring an attorney quickly lets us start building your case right away.

There are also things you shouldn’t do because they might damage your personal injury claim:

  • Don’t cease recommended medical treatments. The amount of compensation you might receive is partially dependent upon the severity of your injuries and their impact on your life. If you stop treatments for any reason, stingy insurance companies may attempt to say that your injuries aren’t as severe as you claim.
  • Stay away from social media. Once you post something on social media accounts, investigators can use it as evidence against you. If you claim to be bedridden but post a selfie of yourself playing with your dog in the backyard, you’ll lose credibility. You might also lose potential compensation.
  • Don’t admit to any degree of fault for your accident or your injuries to anyone, although you should always be truthful with your attorney.
  • Don’t speak to anyone from insurance companies without your attorney present. These representatives often use tactics to get you to agree to fault or a low settlement. Your lawyer won’t let them harass you and will protect your interests.

If you’re unsure about any aspect of your claim, ask your Fielding Law attorney. We will answer your questions and concerns fully.

What Are Common Personal Injury Cases?

Fielding Law represents those injured in several kinds of common personal injury cases. We investigate your accident and the events or circumstances leading up to it to gather evidence to build your case. We also have resources that you probably don’t, so taking advantage of those resources can benefit you financially and provide you with peace of mind.

Car Accidents

Car wrecks can happen for many reasons, and most of those reasons are related to human error. One of the most common causes of car collisions is distracted driving. Anything that takes a driver’s attention and focus away from driving is a distraction. Common distractions include:

  • Texting or other use of a smartphone
  • Interactions with passengers
  • Eating or drinking
  • Grooming
  • Daydreaming

Fault is sometimes challenging to determine. If one or more vehicles involved are taxis or ridesharing autos, deciding who is responsible for paying damages gets even more complicated.

Without the assistance of a competent auto accident attorney, you may not receive the compensation you deserve. Fielding Law attorneys know the liability laws surrounding car accidents, and they can aggressively defend your right to compensation if you sustain injuries in any auto crash.

Product Liability

Although manufacturers and distributors attempt to only offer safe products for sale, consumers sometimes purchase defective products. Defective products can cause illnesses, injuries, or deaths. The companies responsible for producing and selling these goods are likely large, with the money and resources to make it difficult for the average person to fight and successfully recover damages.

The attorneys at Fielding Law have experience handling product liability claims. We understand that several parties may be liable for illnesses or injuries caused by defective products:

  • Assemblers or installers
  • The manufacturer that produces parts and components for the defective product
  • Product manufacturer
  • Retail stores selling the defective product
  • Wholesaler

We investigate and gather evidence to help you get compensation if you suffer from adverse effects of a defective product.

Slip and Fall Accidents

A slip-and-fall accident is a type of premises liability. People slip and fall in their own homes every day, but that’s not a slip-and-fall accident legally. To qualify as a premises liability case, a slip-and-fall accident and injury must take place on someone else’s property. Further, negligence on the part of the property owner or manager, or business owner must exist.

Property owners and businesses owe a duty of care to invitees and licensees who visit their properties; they must maintain safe conditions. If they discover a hazardous condition, they need to fix it immediately or warn others about it until they can remedy the unsafe situation.

Timing is crucial in slip-and-fall cases. You must prove that the party responsible for the property knew about a dangerous condition yet did nothing to prevent accidents related to it. As you can imagine, this is often challenging.

A premises liability attorney from Fielding Law can gather evidence to prove that your accident and injury resulted from someone else’s negligence. However, the sooner you contact us, the better chance we’ll have to obtain that evidence.

Truck Accidents

Fully loaded semi-trucks can legally weigh up to 80,000 pounds. With that much weight behind them, these trucks are difficult to maneuver and can’t stop quickly when traveling at speed. Because of this, many accidents involving these trucks are deadly.

Truck accident survivors often suffer severe injuries requiring extensive medical treatments and prolonged time away from work. These survivors deserve compensation, but determining who is liable for truck accidents is a complex task. Many parties are potentially responsible:

  • The truck driver
  • The company that owns the truck
  • Those responsible for loading and securing the cargo
  • Truck or component manufacturers
  • Those who perform routine maintenance or repairs

With so many parties, nobody’s insurance company wants to admit that their policyholder caused the wreck. Unfortunately, the injured victims often suffer from this reluctance to accept responsibility as well as their injuries and the traumatic effect those injuries have on their lives.

Fielding Law successfully represents truck accident victims in personal injury claims. We know how to navigate the sometimes-confusing blame game that guilty parties play, and we won’t let them take advantage of you.

Our lawyers also handle other types of personal injury cases:

What Kinds of Damages Are Available?

In Texas and Utah, you might receive compensation for three categories of damages in a personal injury case.

Economic Damages

As the name implies, this category compensates injured accident victims for economic losses caused by an accident where negligence is present. These damages have specific dollar amounts attached because the victim can receive bills for:

  • Medical treatment
  • Medications
  • Transportation costs incurred by traveling to and from medical appointments
  • Lost wages due to time away from work while recovering from injuries
  • Property damage
  • The expense of hiring caregivers

Keep all bills, invoices, and receipts for any expenses directly attributable to your accident. Your attorney will use them in your claim.

Non-Economic Damages

Not all injuries caused by accidents are physical, but they can dramatically impact accident victims. Some of these effects last a lifetime. Non-economic damages attempt to compensate injured accident survivors for things that don’t have a price tag, such as:

  • Emotional, mental, and physical pain and suffering
  • Permanent disability
  • Inconvenience
  • The inability to enjoy life as you did before your injury
  • Loss of consortium
  • Permanent disfigurement

Because these damages aren’t tangible, they are sometimes challenging to obtain. Fielding Law understands the laws governing these damages and how to build a strong case for you.

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages are sometimes awarded if the guilty party was intentionally malicious, reckless, or willfully fraudulent. These are only available in certain circumstances; ask your attorney if your case meets the criteria for punitive damages.
