When you’ve been injured in an accident, recovery is most likely at the forefront of your mind. While you may be focused on healing physically, you may not be thinking about the other costs of the accident. The skilled Midland personal injury lawyers from Buckingham Barrera Law Firm help citizens in Midland, Texas get the justice they deserve so they can heal physically, emotionally, and financially.
While the outcome of an accident can affect your health and wellbeing, we’re here to help you with the legal matters of your case to give you the best chance of receiving the compensation you deserve, whether it’s through settlement or jury verdict. Our personal injury attorneys are prepared to fight for your case in court if that’s what it takes to get justice. We’re not afraid to stand up to the guilty party and make them see the consequences of their negligence. The negligent party could be a distracted driver who was texting instead of looking at the road and caused an accident or a fatigued truck driver who had been on the road for too long without taking a break and fell asleep at the wheel. No matter what negligence caused your injuries, we’ll get to the bottom of what happened and show that your injuries could have been prevented if the other party hadn’t acted negligently.
This process takes careful investigation, attention to detail, and knowledge of the laws that apply to your case. Our lawyers know the essential components of a successful case and will seek to establish the following:
- The negligent party owed you a duty of care.
- They failed to meet this duty of care through negligence or recklessness.
- Their negligence caused an accident.
- The accident caused your injuries and losses.
Some cases can become complex and may require the testimony of expert witnesses. Should your case require this, our attorneys will make sure the necessary elements are present to make your case valid and as strong as possible.

Accidents Can Be Life-Altering
The effects of an accident can put your life on hold. Your injuries may take weeks or months to heal. In some cases, you may need surgeries or a strict regimen of medication and rehabilitation before you’re ready to get back on your feet.
Some accidents can have a greater impact on your life. If the injuries are catastrophic, they can be permanent and prevent you from returning to work. A catastrophic injury can include traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury resulting in paralysis, amputation, burns resulting in permanent nerve damage, and more.
These injuries are painful and can take an intense treatment and rehabilitation plan to help heal you as much as possible, but may not result in a full recovery. Catastrophic injuries may mean you will need to take certain medications for the rest of your life, or you will require the use of medical equipment. The adjustment will take time to get used to physically and emotionally.
While a complete lifestyle change is difficult to deal with on its own, knowing that someone’s negligence caused this unexpected change can be devastating. To help hold that person accountable for their actions and secure your future, you need a Midland personal injury lawyer at your side.
Our Experienced Lawyers Fight for Negligence Victims
Your compensation can greatly aid in your recovery. We’ll fight to help you recover the economic and noneconomic losses you incurred. Economic losses apply to monetary losses, like the following:
- Lost Wages
- Loss of Earnings
- Medical Expenses (past expenses and for future care)
- Property Damage
Your lawyer will calculate any wages you had to miss while recovering or will miss because you’re no longer able to go back to your job. If you needed to stay in the hospital, the expenses of care, tests, and procedures can add up. You shouldn’t have to worry about debt to pay for hospital bills for injuries that you didn’t cause. If you were in a car accident, your car may have been damaged. We’ll consider all these damages when assessing your economic losses.
Noneconomic damages cover the other impacts of a personal injury. You may have experienced or are experiencing:
- Pain and Suffering
- Loss of Enjoyment of Life
Your injuries may be causing pain and are preventing you from living your life the way you want to. While these matters do not have an exact monetary value assigned to them, they are still outcomes of the accident that caused your injuries. Our personal injury lawyer in Midland will seek to right these losses as well. If you’ve lost a loved one, your lawyer will also take the loss of companionship into account.
