Negligence is defined as a failure to act in a manner or with a level of care that is reasonably expected under the circumstances. As such, negligence can take many forms, including:
- Road rage
- Aggressive driving
- Reckless driving
- Texting and driving
- Driving while distracted
- Inattentiveness to surroundings
- Fatigued driving
- Failing to yield right of way
- Driving while intoxicated or otherwise impaired
- Operating a poorly maintained vehicle
- Manufacturer defects
When others fail in their duty of care, innocent victims are the ones who suffer. At Salam & Associates, PC, we don't let negligence go unanswered. We maintain offices in Richardson and seek justice for accident victims throughout Texas and New Mexico. We can arrange to meet with clients in our Las Cruces location as well (by appointment only).
Your Right to Damages
Under personal injury law, accident victims or, in fatal accidents, victims' families have the right to seek justice for injuries and damages caused by at-fault parties. Compensation may include either or both:
• Compensatory damages, which include calculable expenses such as medical bills, prescription medication, lost wages, physical therapy, long-term health care, and funeral and burial costs
• Punitive damages, which exceed compensatory damages and are intended to punish the defendant. These damages can cover pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment and loss of consortium, to name a few.
Experience Matters When Recovering Damages
To fully understand your rights and the full extent of compensation you are owed in a personal injury claim, you need a comprehensive and thorough review of your entire case, including your present and future medical needs. This type of in-depth review can only come from someone with extensive experience and a track record of success.
At Salam & Associates, PC, we will use our 60 years of combined legal experience to address all of your needs after a serious or fatal accident. We can help you pursue damages for injuries and address business matters related to a loved one's death. We can also help you petition for immigration visas for loved ones who are coming from another country to support you after your accident.
