The Dr Shezad Malik Law Firm helps folks get the recovery they need after being involved in an accident.
After an Accident, get Help From an Experienced Dallas Personal Injury Attorney
When someone has been seriously injured in an accident, it’s hard to know what needs to be done immediately. The injured person and their family can be overwhelmed trying to deal with the pain of injuries, and endless medical appointments and treatments, all the while facing growing medical bills, lost income, and fear about the financial future.
How will a Dallas Lawyer Help Injured People Recover Financially?
After the first awful days and weeks following a serious injury or accident, the reality of the situation sets in. The injured person may spend days or weeks in the hospital, followed by extensive follow-up treatment, and may be out of work for weeks. They may not have health insurance. They lose income due to lost work and wages. And they definitely see the medical bills flood in.
An Injury Attorney Handles the Insurance Claim That Begins the Financial Recovery Process
When an injured person hires a personal injury attorney, the help begins immediately. Our legal team launches into action to hold the at-fault party responsible and to secure funds that will fully compensate the victim and his or her family for their medical expenses, lost past and future earnings, pain and suffering, and other related damages.
One of the most challenging aspects of recovering from an accident is dealing with insurance companies. Our attorneys handle all communications, manage all documentation, and coordinate getting medical bills paid. We negotiate a full settlement, but when a full settlement isn’t offered, we are willing to file a lawsuit, to get the highest possible recovery.

Dallas Personal Injury Law Firm Helps Injury Victims
A personal injury claim in Dallas can arise when an individual is injured by the negligence or intentional act of another. When an individual is injured in Dallas by the negligence of another person or entity, they may be entitled to recover financial compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages resulting from their accident. In some Dallas accident cases, the injured party may also be able to recover punitive damages.
Texas Statute of Limitations
Personal injury claims in Dallas must be filed within two years of the date when the injury occurred. Failure to file a Dallas accident claim within this time period can prevent the victim from ever recovering compensation, regardless of the severity of the injuries.

Dallas Personal Injury Law
Personal injuries in Dallas are also referred to as “torts.” Dallas personal injury and accident law defines a “tort” as an “unlawful violation of a private legal right other than a mere breach of contract, expressed or implied,” and maintains that “a tort may also be the violation of a public duty if, as a result of the violation, some special damages accrues to the individual.”
Every claim alleging a personal injury in Dallas must include four components:
Duty: The defendant must have a legal duty of care toward the party injured in the accident.
Breach of Duty: The defendant must have breached their duty toward the injured party.
Damages: The accident victim must have suffered some form of harm for which personal injury law allows a monetary award.
Proximate Cause: The defendant’s violation of duty must be related to the plaintiff’s accident injuries closely enough to be considered at least one of the dominant causes of the injury.

A catastrophic personal injury or a wrongful death claim involves serious injuries such as loss of vision, paralysis, brain damage, major burns, amputations, multiple fractures and spinal cord injuries.
If you were injured as a result of the reckless or negligent actions of another person or a company, Texas law allows you to seek compensation and in some cases, punitive damages. Catastrophic personal injuries turn into wrongful death claims if the injured person dies as a result of the accident.
If a loved one or relative dies because of personal injury, wrongful death compensation may be given for: funeral expenses, medical expenses, future medical care, lost wages, future loss of earning capacity, pain, mental anguish, disfigurement, impairment, loss of emotional support and companionship provided by spouse or parent; and loss of household duties provided by spouse or parent.
