General Personal Injury

Due to no fault of your own, you could be injured.

Personal injury laws in Texas are designed to protect your rights.

Lark Legal’s Personal Injury Attorneys in Houston will advise you of your personal injury claim rights. Our legal team represents you in general personal injury cases. We help you get a fair settlement for injuries sustained in auto accidents and other personal injury situations, due to the negligence of others.

Understanding Personal Injury

Personal Injury is the legal term for anyone physically, mentally, or emotionally injured through abuse, reckless acts by another, or negligence induced by an accident or an intended action.

 In personal injury cases, the person who has suffered an injury relies on the legal concept of negligence to establish another person’s fault for the underlying injury. In summary, a person has a legal duty act with reasonable care at all times.  One must avoid causing harm to another.

Personal Injury Accidents Can Happen Anywhere

People unjustly injured don’t believe they can get the compensation they need.  The experienced Attorneys at Lark Legal guide you through the process.  We seek fair compensation for your injuries, lost wages and other losses.   Listed below are common injury statistics the law protects you from when you call Lark Legal.

The American Bar Association States

 “Every tort claim, regardless of its basis, whether intentional, negligence, or strict liability, has two basic issues—liability and damages. Was the defendant liable for the damages you sustained, and, if so, what is the nature and extent of your damages? If you can prove liability and damages, our system of justice will award you compensation for your loss.”

  • “Torts” is a legal term to describe an incident of personal injury where harm was caused not necessarily on purpose, in which case you have the right to sue.
