Elements of a Personal Injury Case
When you’re hurt, you need to contact an attorney right away. Your attorney will need to begin collecting evidence to prove your case right away. Your attorney will need to provide evidence that supports a negligence claim.
To succeed in a personal injury claim, you and your attorney will need to provide evidence for the negligence elements:
- Duty. The person or corporation had an obligation to avoid or minimize the risk of foreseeable harm to you or a loved one.
- Breach of duty. Once duty is established, proving a breach of duty means the person or entity failed to exercise the same level of care a reasonable or prudent person in the same or similar circumstances.
- Causation. A plaintiff will need to prove that the defendant’s actions caused their injuries. In many cases, causation is fairly straightforward. However, it can become tricky when there are multiple plaintiffs or defendants involved. This is why it is extremely important to have a team of personal injury lawyers by your side.
- Damages. In Texas, a plaintiff needs to show they suffered real and measurable damages as a result of the defendant’s actions.

The Carlson Law Firm is Where Compassion Meets Injury Law
The Carlson Commitment
Navigating a personal injury lawsuit is not easy. It requires experience, skill and a reputation that instills fear into the insurance company. Every Carlson Law Firm attorney has courtroom experience. Sometimes, the insurance company refuses to settle for the amount you need for your full recovery. If that occurs, with a Carlson Attorney by your side, you know that you already have everything you need to get the most compensation possible.
After an unexpected injury, you’re dealing with potentially life-altering pain. The insurance company often relies on this period to swoop in and settle your claim before you 1) understand the full extent of your injuries and 2) understand you’re not 100% capable of negotiating.
This is where our attorneys come in. We will handle the paperwork and negotiations with the insurance company while you focus on yourself.
A Killeen accident can be expensive. Between medical bills, lost wages and other unexpected financial burdens, you will face a mountain of potential debt. Our legal experts can provide valuable insight to fully understand how much a defendant should pay you for each area of your loss.
Part of our negotiation strategy is being ready to take your case to court. This is what actually helps recover the substantial compensation you deserve.
