Compensation in Your Personal Injury Case

Compensation varies from case to case and is achieved through tough negotiation with insurance companies or by going to court. At Peckham Martin PLLC, we are not afraid to take insurance companies to court when they attempt to reduce or deny the compensation to which you are entitled. Their main objective is generally to pay you as little as possible to protect their bottom line. Our team will leave no stone unturned in preparing your case for a strong position, either at the negotiation table or in court.

Generally, compensatory damages may include all of your past and future medical expenses related to the injury, out-of-pocket expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages or income, mental anguish, and property damage. In the case of catastrophic injuries, these damages must be calculated to ensure that you have all of the financial resources needed to deal with the effects of such life-altering injuries.

This can include home and vehicle renovations, occupational therapy, physical therapy, medical equipment, long-term care, or perpetual daily assistance with even the most basic of daily tasks.

Compensation for Wrongful Death Survivors

In Texas, the surviving spouse, children, or parents of the person who has died in a wrongful death may file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. Should none of these family members exist, a suit can be filed by the deceased person’s estate representative. Compensation from a wrongful death suit may include funeral and burial expenses, medical expenses, and the pain and suffering endured by the deceased prior to passing away as well as the loss of financial support, companionship, and mental anguish for the surviving family members.

Personal Injury Claims for Veterans

As a veteran, you have unique civil legal needs. As a veteran, when you return to civilian life, internal scars and prior injuries can often affect your reactions and needs when newly injured. We handle personal injury claims for veterans with special attention to treatment and care needed. Additionally, veterans’ medical records and federal medical liens require experience in handling. We have that experience.

We protect and fight for you and your family when you are injured as in:

  • 18-wheeler and car wrecks;
  • Fire and fire-related injuries;
  • Chemical exposure;
  • Jail death and other civil rights actions
