How do I Know if I have a Personal Injury Claim?

Injury & Malpractice Attorney Serving Clients Near Dallas, Ft. Worth, Plano, Arlington, Irving, North Texas & Arkansas


A personal injury is any serious injury you or a family member has suffered due to the negligence of another person or parties. This can be an injury resulting from a car accident, a birth injury, medical malpractice, a slip and fall, or anything else.

Personal injuries can leave you with insurmountable medical bills, a long time away from work, or pain and suffering. If you are left with any of these as the result of another’s actions, you have the right to place the blame with them and seek compensation.

The best way to find out if you have a claim for a personal injury is to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney. While you may already know you have a case before speaking to one of the attorneys at Polewski & Associates, you should understand all factors that go into your claim. In general, there are three areas which must be proven in order for you to have a personal injury claim.

These are:

  • A third party is responsible for your injury or the injury of a loved one
  • The injury you suffered is a personal injury, or you have suffered financially
  • The defendant caused your personal injury

When these three factors have been established, we can begin gathering what is needed to file your lawsuit. Compensation for your personal injury may cover all of your medical bills, rehabilitation and physical therapy, lost wages, or pain and suffering.

If you are in the Dallas, Texas area, or anywhere else in the state of Texas, and believe you have a personal injury claim, please contact Polewski Law, P.C. today to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney.
