Tough Advocacy That Injured Texans Can Trust

Last updated on July 19, 2024

Injuries can happen anywhere, anytime and to anyone. Unfortunately, lawyers can’t turn back time or assist with the healing process, but Texas law provides money damages when you or someone you love has been seriously injured. Injured Texans cannot expect insurance companies – even their own – to do the right thing. Instead, they should reach out for assistance from a qualified and reputable attorney.

Matt Breeland is an experienced personal injury trial attorney who serves clients all over Texas, primarily in Austin and the surrounding areas. Breeland Injury Law, PLLC combines compassion with his extensive record of delivering positive results in cases involving everything from car crashes to dog bites to slip-and-falls.

What Damages Are Available In Personal Injury Claims?

The term “damages” refers to the losses you suffer as a result of an injury. Texas law allows injured people to recover money for each and every type of damages they suffer. In an injury case, the most common types of recoverable damages are:

  • Medical expenses in the past and those you will probably incur in the future;
  • Pain and suffering – both past and what you will likely endure in the future;
  • Physical impairment – both past and what you will likely experience in the future.

Although each type of damages are important, Matt has achieved great success in front of juries by emphasizing an injured person’s loss of quality of life. Our time on this earth is precious. A serious injury can impair your ability to do a variety of things we all often take for granted:

  • Performing basic and essential household functions;
  • Earning a living without being in pain;
  • Spending time and interacting with loved ones;
  • Holding and playing with children and grandchildren;
  • Exercising;
  • Playing sports;
  • Traveling;
  • Pursuing other hobbies, such as music or the arts.

An injured person is more than their medical bills. Matt devotes his time to recovering maximum compensation for all of your harms and losses. He prepares each case as if it will go to trial – despite the very low statistical likelihood that it will – to make sure that you get enough coverage for your current and future damages.

What Are The Benefits Of A Personal Injury Attorney?

When insurance companies are quick to offer you a settlement check, many people wonder why they need a lawyer at all. The truth is that most offers from an insurance company are less than a victim deserves. A personal injury attorney can identify what your claim is worth, negotiate for fair compensation, and resolve your claim in a swift and effective manner.

What Should You Look For In A Personal Injury Attorney?

Your lawyer should be someone who is as committed to your needs as you are, and is not just providing you with boilerplate representation. A reliable attorney should go the extra mile for you in gathering evidence, supporting documentation, expert witness consultations and anything else necessary to pursue the ideal outcome in your case.

What Can You Earn Compensation For In Your Claim?

Fair compensation for a personal injury should reflect the current and future costs of your injuries. Common compensation factors include lost income during the time you were not able to work because of your injuries, operation and treatment costs, relocation or renovation to accommodate disabilities and property damage.

What Kind Of Injuries Can A Lawyer Help With?

Matt can help you secure compensation for major injuries with a lifetime of consequences. His experience and skill in these cases has secured fair compensation for injuries like spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, back injuries, internal organ injuries and even loss of life. Because he knows what is at stake in these cases, Matt is able to fight for the compensation that accurately reflects the costs of the accident.

A Reputation Backed By Results

Clients, peers, insurers and opposing counsel throughout Texas recognize Matt for his outstanding legal work. Texas Monthly magazine named him to the Texas Super Lawyer Rising Stars list consecutively in 2017 – 2021. He also won one of the state’s top 100 jury verdicts in 2019. This verdict was also one of the top 50 verdicts of motor vehicle accident cases that year.
