A large number of the cases handled at our Texas law firm deal with property damage. Whether the damage you are inquiring about relates to an automobile as the result of an accident, or another piece of personal property, the following information may be helpful.
Legally defined by injury to real or personal property, property damage may be the result of:
- Willful destruction
- An act of nature
In lawsuits for damages caused by negligence or a willful act, property damage is distinguished from personal injury. In short, the amount of recovery for property damage may be established by evidence of:
- Replacement value
- Cost of repairs
- Loss of use until repaired or replaced
- Subjective testimony as to sentimental value (family heirlooms are the most common example)
