Brazoria County Personal Injury Attorneys
Being injured in any type of accident, whether on the road, at work, while shopping, or in any context, can throw your life into chaos. Sudden injuries can result in pain, discomfort, emotional trauma, the inability to work and support yourself and your family, and spiraling medical and out-of-pocket expenses.
When these consequences are the result of negligence or intentional malice, as in criminal attacks, they generally fall under Texas personal injury law. This area of law encompasses a set of legal rules and practices that govern civil claims for compensation when you suffer such harm from another person or entity. The purpose of personal injury law is to help you recover financial compensation for the losses you have sustained as a result.
At Lozano Law Offices, our team of seasoned lawyers can help you navigate the legal process involving personal injury claims and lawsuits. We also represent those who have suffered work injuries while on the job in seeking workers’ compensation benefits. Our team is dedicated to ensuring that you secure the compensation you need and deserve in any type of accident or incident in which you have been injured.
Personal Injury Cases in Brazoria County, Texas & Surrounding Counties
A personal injury is any injury that happens to a person because of the negligence of another person or entity. These injuries can range from mild to severe, but they all require medical treatment and cause pain and suffering. They can also cause permanent disability, loss of wages, and other damages.
At Lozano Law Offices, we know how to build cases through an extensive investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding the accident or event, how to properly value your claim, and how to stand up to insurance companies that routinely try to undervalue or deny such claims.
We handle claims based on a wide variety of accidents and incidents, such as:
- Auto Accidents
- 18 Wheeler Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents

- Dog Bites
- Tire Defects
- Post-Collision Fires
- Seatbelt/Airbag Defects
- SUV Rollovers
- Trucking Accidents
- Bus Accidents
- Plant Explosions
- Oil Rig Explosions
- Product Defects
- Drug Defects
- Wrongful Death
Whether your injuries range from whiplash, concussions, lacerations, or road rash to broken bones, internal injuries, organ damage, or catastrophic injuries, such as spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injury, severe burns, or loss of limbs, we can help.
What Type of Damages May Be Available in a Personal Injury Claim?
The damages you may receive will depend on the type and severity of your injuries, their impact on your life, and whether you had any percentage of fault in the accident. Comparative negligence, also known as proportionate responsibility, is a legal principle that affects Texas personal injury claims. Under this rule, the amount of compensation you can recover is reduced based on your percentage of fault for the accident.
Potential damages can include:
- Medical expenses (past and future)
- Lost wages (past and future)
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Property damage, such as to your vehicle
In catastrophic injuries, where permanent disability may occur, damages may consider your long-term or lifetime need for personal at-home assistance, ongoing medical care, renovations needed in your home and vehicle to accommodate your disability, and more.
Work Injuries & Workers’ Compensation Cases
If you have been injured while performing your work duties, you are generally covered by Texas workers’ compensation law. This is a state-regulated insurance program that provides financial benefits to employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses.
In Texas, workers' compensation is administered by the Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers' Compensation (TDI-DWC). It's important to note that Texas is unique among states in that employers are not required to carry workers' compensation insurance, but they must notify their employees if they choose not to provide coverage.
Our firm can help you with applications and appeals for medical, income, and death benefits under Texas law where available.
