Accidents are an unfortunately common fact of life. People are injured every day because of circumstances that are entirely out of their control. Some of the time, these accidents occur even if no one directly caused them, such as when a storm caused damage to someone’s home or car. In other cases, however, the way a person acted or failed to act may have caused an accident to happen, such as when a homeowner failed to repair their damaged porch, or a driver caused an accident while texting. In these situations, another person’s reckless or negligent behavior directly caused an accident, which may result in an injury or monetary loss to you or your loved ones. You should not be forced to pay for the consequences of another person’s actions, especially when you had no part in the resulting accident.

Injuries may come in many different forms due to the number of different ways we interact with people. You may have been injured by someone’s actions directly, like if they were behaving in a way that was unsafe or reckless, or your injury may also have been the unintended result of a person’s actions, such as when a person makes a critical mistake or fails to perform their required duties. Each of these types of personal injury cases can have a wide variety of legal consequences and impact, and it is important to understand the full scope of your injury in order to receive appropriate compensation. This is why the legal team at The Benton Law Firm is prepared to work with you in a number of different situations in which an injury could occur.
Our lawyers are experienced with all different forms of personal injury law, and we can help you build your case as effectively as possible. Some of the many types of personal injury cases we handle include:
Although these are some of the most common forms of personal injury, many other types of injuries are still possible. Even if the circumstances of your injury are not specifically covered, our attorneys may still be able to help you build your case.
Personal injury lawsuits are one of the most common forms of civil litigation across the United States. Although this fact is true, in part, because of the number of different types of injuries which may qualify, it is also due to the high number of accidents and injuries that occur each year. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, approximately 31 million people are injured yearly, with 2 million of these injuries requiring hospitalization and 162,000 resulting in death.
One of the most common causes of these injuries is motor vehicle accidents. In 2016 alone, automobile crashes across the state of Texas resulted in approximately 17,500 serious injuries and nearly 4,000 deaths. Additionally, Texas has a large number of commercial trucks driving on the highways. These trucks pose an additional risk to drivers and often cause serious accidents. In 2016, commercial trucks caused over 34,000 accidents on roads and highways across Texas. Although automobile accidents cause a vast majority of injuries across Texas, many other types of personal injuries are also common. Texas has alarmingly high rates of construction injuries and fatalities, with over 580 more deaths in a period of ten years than the average state.
These statistics show the alarming rate at which injuries occur in the state of Texas and across the nation. In many cases, these injuries could have been lessened or fully prevented if other people, such as drivers, managers, or workers, had taken proper precautions. Unfortunately, many people are not aware that they can receive compensation to help with the financial and emotional toll of these types of accidents.
