Houston Personal Injury Attorney Helps You Recover Damages
Litigation firm serving injured victims in Houston and nearby towns
Having worked for Koomey Inc., an oilrig equipment company, before starting to practice law 30 years ago, Attorney George “Buck” Cire understands how devastating a personal injury is to people who work hard every day and are suddenly unable to make a living while bills pile up. This experience inspired Mr. Cire to provide nearby clients with strategic means of finding relief in the most difficult of circumstances. Our law firm holds fast to our founding principles as we advocate for your rights to compensation for your auto accident, medical malpractice, premises liability, products liability or other personal injury claim.
Statute of limitations for filing your personal injury claim
Most personal injury claims have a two-year statute of limitations. However, there are exceptions to the deadline. For example, the law considers it a legal disability if you are younger than 18 or are not of sound mind. In these situations, the statute of limitations does not start running unless and until you are no longer subject to the exception. Time is of the essence when filing a personal injury claim. If the statute of limitations expires, you waive your rights to recover the damages to which you are entitled.
What do personal injury lawyers do?
The types and amounts of damages you recover for a personal injury claim depend upon the circumstances of your individual case. Our experienced Houston personal injury attorney evaluates your claim and pursues your maximum possible compensation for such damages as:
In addition to economic damages, you may be entitled to noneconomic recovery. However, the Medical Liability and Insurance Improvement Act (MLIIA) caps noneconomic medical malpractice damages at $250,000 for defendants, $750,000 per healthcare facility and $500,000 for wrongful death.
The Texas proportionate responsibility rule requires you to be less culpable than the defendant from whom you seek damages. In addition, your damages are reduced by the percentage you are to blame for the wreck. Of course, the negligence laws also work in reverse, meaning that you could be held liable for damages if you are found to be more at fault than another party, in a car accident or trucking accident, for example. Cire Law Firm launches a full investigation of your case to determine fault and gather evidence that supports your personal injury claim and protects you from a lawsuit.
