Jefferson County Personal Injury Lawyer
Proudly Servicing Jefferson County, TX
Every day in the country, people suffer unnecessary injury due to the recklessness and negligence of others. Those who cause injury to others must be held accountable. At the Pascoe Law Firm, our Jefferson County Personal Injury Lawyer fights aggressively to protect the rights of the injured, and to ensure the compensation they receive is just. The goal of the American tort system is to grant those who are injured by others the right to seek compensation for their injuries and damages for the purpose of restoring them. Unfortunately, our legal system is not perfect and not everyone can be fully restored to where they were prior to their injury. We recognize that for many clients their life may never again be the same. Our goal is to try to get you to as close to where you were as possible.
In instances of egregious wrongdoing, we may sometimes request punitive damages, the purpose of which is not just to restore the victim, but to punish the wrongdoer (also sometimes referred to as the “tortfeasor”). These damages may sometimes be triple the original award.

Winning A Personal Injury Lawsuit in Jefferson County Texas
In order to succeed in a personal injury lawsuit, there are a number of things one must keep in mind. The first is the statute of limitations. There is only a small window of time in which a person who is injured may file a lawsuit this is called the statute of limitations. That window can vary depending on the facts, but is generally 2 years from the date of injury. There are some situations in which the statute of limitations may be “tolled” or extended, but that should be thought more as an exception rather than the norm.
In some injury lawsuits, a settlement may be reached before plaintiff formally files a lawsuit. Most settle prior to trial. However, in those cases that do proceed to trial, the plaintiff (the injured party) is required to show:
- Defendant owed a duty of reasonable care to plaintiff
- Defendant failed to uphold that duty of care
- Defendant failure to uphold duty of care caused plaintiff’s injury
- Plaintiff suffered damage as a result of that breach of duty
