You Need a San Juan, Texas Personal Injury Lawyer To Prove Negligence

Under Texas law, to collect damages from someone, you must prove the person or entity from who you seek to receive compensation owed you a duty of care, breached that duty, and the breach was the cause of your accident in which you suffered damages.

A simple example of this is a car accident. All drivers have a duty to others to follow traffic laws and drive safely. If a driver runs a red light and rams into your car, the driver has breached their duty (running the red light) and the breach was the cause of the accident (ramming into your car), and as a result of that breach, you were injured (suffered damages).

If the above criteria are met, you deserve compensation for your injuries. Even if you were partially at fault, under Texas law you can still collect damages as long as you were less than 50% at fault. Your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault.

For example, if you would be entitled to $100,000 compensation, but the court finds you were 20% at fault for the accident, your award will be reduced by 20% ($20,000) and you will receive $80,000 instead of $100,000.
