Let Attorney Jerome O. Fjeld Evaluate Your Claim

Often, clients aren’t aware if they have a strong claim. The legal process surrounding these matters can be complex. It’s wise to allow an experienced attorney like Jerome O. Fjeld examine your case for every particular. He will take a detailed view of your claim so he can provide you with his opinion of the matter. We’ll take time to address you claims and concerns. Without having a complete understanding of the matter from a legal vantage point, it can be difficult to make an informed decision about how to proceed.

We will provide our legal advice throughout the process if you choose to proceed. Naturally, if an insurance provider or defendant offers a settlement, we will carefully review it to ensure that you’re being offered a fair sum for what you’ve endured. It’s always the client’s prerogative to accept or decline a settlement offer, but it’s important to do so with sound legal counsel guiding your decisions.

Proving Negligence or Fault

In order to achieve compensation, we invariably have to provide that a defendant:

  • Owed a breach of duty to the victim

  • The defendant breached their duty

  • The breach resulted in the injuries the victim sustained

  • The victim suffered damages in association with their injuries

These tenets are associated with all personal injury matters. If we are able to prove these elements, we can achieve justice for our clients, helping them win compensation for what they’ve endured because of another’s fault.

Negotiation

Many—even most—personal injury cases are resolved by negotiation. Attorney Fjeld nearly two decades of experience negotiating personal injury settlements for cases that involve car accidents, slip and fall accidents, and wrongful death. He knows personal injury law inside and out. His knowledge and experience can serve clients in their quest for justice. Many defendants whose liability is clear are anxious to achieve a settlement. They want to possibly avoid a more costly compensation award at trial and to save on litigation costs. In such cases, it is often possible to achieve a lucrative settlement that is acceptable to clients. If negotiation fails, the process can be escalated to litigation.

Litigating a Personal Injury Claim

Attorney Fjeld is a tenacious litigator. He will work diligently to represent his clients interests before a judge or jury. During his tenure as a Houston personal injury attorney, he’s been able to achieve lucrative compensation awards for clients.

Compensation for Personal Injury Claims in Texas

Texas personal injury victims can claim economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include quantitative costs associated with the injuries the victim has sustained. These expenses may include:

  • Medical costs (past and future)

  • Lost work wages (past and future)

  • Lost bonuses

  • Lost sales

  • Lost pension

  • Funeral expenses and more

Medical costs include a wide array of expenses that often involve surgeries, doctor visits, tests, home nursing, rehabilitation center stays, hospital stays, emergency room costs, counseling, medical equipment, medication, and physical therapy. For complex cases, we may consult medical experts who can discuss the nature of the client’s injuries and the likely care they will need in the future. We may also wish to procure the services of an actuary to help calculate the lost wages and benefits associated with an individual’s claim.

Non-economic damages are the pain and suffering that victims experience after their accident. This pain may be both physical and emotional in nature. Contrary to popular belief, this amount isn’t quite so arbitrary as some people might have you believe. When considering this amount, we might ask a client: how much would you charge to endure this type of accident now that you understand what it entails? Of course, this type of question is inappropriate in some types of cases, but we do need to arrive at a fair sum to request for pain and suffering. And we know full well how much our clients suffer as a result of their injuries. They didn’t ask to be harmed. They were unwittingly hurt by another and they deserve compensation for the pain and suffering they were forced to experience.

Types of Injuries

There are many types of accidents that cause horrific accidents. In Texas, accidents like car collisions and slip and fall accidents may include:

  • Traumatic brain injury

  • Concussion

  • Organ damage

  • Internal bleeding

  • Broken bones and fractures

  • Spinal injuries

  • Disfigurement

  • Amputation

  • Road rash

  • Cuts and lacerations

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

If you are involved in any type of accident, you should immediately seek medical care. Without treatment, serious injuries can lead to death. Sometimes, victims of accidents don’t realize the extent of their injuries. They may not realize they have a neck fracture or spinal injury. They may have no clue they’re suffering from a concussion or internal bleeding. It’s important to head to a hospital emergency room or urgent care center to get treatment.

When you visit a medical center, staff will document your injuries and care. This document, part of your medical record, is going to be evidence should you decide to pursue a claim. Keep all medical records—all receipts for medical supplies like equipment and medication.

Also, it’s a good idea to call police to the scene of a serious accident so they can produce an accident report. This report may be vital evidence in support of your claim.

Contact Attorney Fjeld and his associates if you need a Houston personal injury attorney. He and his team have the skills needed to pursue your case. Call to schedule your initial consultation, and remember, we will not charge you our legal fees unless we’re able to win your case.
