CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS

Working in the construction industry is one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. Thousands of workers around the country are injured or killed in construction accidents annually. With the growth of construction in Texas today, there are some important points that you should know about construction injuries:

  • Construction companies are responsible for inspection of the work with safety engineers and for providing safety programs for their employees. When these measures are not implemented or fail to protect construction workers, employers, architects, insurance companies and equipment manufacturers may be legally liable.
  • Third party negligence means that manufacturers of the various equipment and products used in works may be found responsible. It is also possible for subcontractors and even the general contractor to be contractually liable for damages.
  • Workers Compensation provides workers injured on the job or suffering from illness during the course of employment with benefits that include pay based on wages and total or partial disabilities. Unfortunately, this alone may not be enough compensation.

Although there are many safety regulations to protect you, there is always the risk of having an accident at work. Given the nature of construction site work, the risks are higher taking into consideration heavy equipment, fall hazards, exposure to chemicals, raised platforms, excavations and dangerous objects.

In the event that you have an accident, you need an experienced lawyer on your side. You have options and we are here to help you. The most common construction accidents are:

  • Falling materials and objects
  • Collapses of walls, ditches and floors
  • Electric shock
  • Crane accidents
  • Accidents with scaffolding
  • Falls
  • Burns
  • Chemical spills

If you or a loved one were involved in a construction accident, please contact us at 855-900-3429 for a free consultation. We don’t charge, unless we win.

*No attorney’s fees unless you recover. Court costs, litigation expenses, and medical bills are paid from your share of the recovery. If there is no recovery, you will not be responsible for any court costs or litigation expenses, except for unpaid medical bills.

TRUCKING ACCIDENTS

WORKPLACE INJURY

TRUCKING ACCIDENTS

Commercial vehicle and 18-wheeler accidents present unique dangers that do not arise in accidents involving ordinary cars. Many 18-wheeler accidents are horrific incidents that often result in serious bodily injury or death and massive destruction.

Even if the trucking company has offered you a settlement, do not accept it without first speaking with a lawyer. The trucking company’s interest is to pay as little in damages as possible.

Our law firm is experienced in 18-wheeler accidents and we know how to fight for the maximum value of your case. Not only will we represent you zealously, but we will also work with experts to investigate the incident, and we will connect you with medical professionals to treat your injuries.

18-wheeler collisions can cause serious and permanent bodily injuries. You will need enough compensation to account for medical treatment, rehabilitation, long-term care, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. Our accident lawyers have the knowledge and experience to obtain the full amount of compensation to which you are entitled.

If you or someone you love has been hurt in an 18-wheeler accident, it is crucial that no time is wasted in getting the serious legal representation that you deserve. Call us immediately for a FREE case evaluation at 855-900-3429. We don’t charge, unless we win!

WRONGFUL DEATH AND SURVIVAL CLAIMS

CATASTROPHIC INJURIES

WRONGFUL DEATH AND SURVIVAL CLAIMS

Losing a loved one is extremely painful and no one is ever prepared for it, especially in an accident. If the death of your loved one was caused by an act of negligence, you have the right to sue for your loss. When suing for wrongful death, the victim’s dependents may have the right to receive financial compensation. No amount of money is enough to overcome the loss of a loved one, but it is in the best interest of the family to protect their rights.

A death caused by negligence can occur anywhere and under any circumstances. Below are some examples of situations in which a death caused by negligence can occur:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Accidents with commercial trucks/18 wheelers
  • Construction accidents
  • Medical malpractice in emergency rooms
  • Hit and Run
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Driving While Intoxicated accidents
  • Defective products
  • Acts of violence

Wrongful death and survival claims may include financial compensation for the following:

  • All medical expenses
  • Pain and Suffering
  • The loss of future income
  • Any future services normally provided to you by the loved one who died
  • Loss of a spouse’s companionship, support, and affection
  • Punitive Damages
  • Property Damage

We understand that this is a sensitive situation and we will help you receive the compensation you deserve, as we guide you through the process. If you or someone you know needs professional help with a wrongful death and survival case, contact us immediately at 855-900-3429 for a free case evaluation.

PREMISES LIABILITY

PREMISES LIABILITY

Premises liability laws exist to hold property owners responsible for any accidents that take place on their site as a result of negligence. Property, business, and facility owners can all be held directly responsible for any injuries or illnesses that occur on their premises because of negligence or lack of proper maintenance. Property owners are required to make sure that their property is free from hazards and safe for people of all ages, regardless of the time of day. If this duty has been breached and someone suffers an injury or death as a result, the victim may be able to make a premises liability claim against the property owner. While it is true that the most common premises liability claims involve slip and fall accidents, there are numerous other forms of property liability for which an owner or operator may be liable. It is important to note that one of the most important aspects of premises liability claims is proving that the property owner was negligent and could have prevented the accident on their grounds through the implementation of better safety measures, warnings, or fixing the hazardous condition. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in an accident that occurred on someone else’s property and you think that person could have made the premises safer, please contact us immediately for a free case evaluation.

Common Types of Premises Liability Cases:

  • Slip and falls
  • Diving Accidents
  • Balcony Accidents
  • Stairs and railing accidents
  • Inadequate security
  • Elevator accidents
  • Escalator Accidents
  • Walking Area Accidents
  • Amusement Park Accidents
  • Swimming Pool Accidents
  • Hotel Negligence
  • Department Store Negligence
  • Electrocutions
  • Uneven pavement or floors
  • Falling objects
  • Defective products on property
  • Attacks by animals on private property
  • Drowning on private property
  • Electrical shock, burns and death from faulty wiring
  • Building collapses or balcony collapses

Personal Injury FAQ

First and foremost, ensure that everyone is safe and call for medical attention if necessary.

  • Report the accident so a police officer can make an official report and investigation.
  • Take the other person’s information. This includes name, address, insurance policy information, vehicle information and phone number.
  • Take pictures of the accident scene and injuries (if possible). This is important to help establish responsibility of the accident and injuries.
  • Never sign any documents you don’t understand. Remember insurance policies are not on your side and they will try to settle your case with the least amount possible. If they ask you to sign any documents accepting any offer, this will waive your right of getting your medical bills paid and the compensation you deserve.
  • Do not admit fault if you are unsure who caused the accident. Contact us immediately at 855-900-3429. Our consultation is FREE and if we don’t win, we don’t charge you!

You should never provide a recorded statement of facts to anyone, especially the insurance companies. They will almost always use your recorded statement against you to deny liability and monetary recovery. You should always talk to your attorney prior to giving any statement to the insurance companies and have your attorney present during the recorded statement. Most importantly, don’t provide statements of fault to anyone.

As a passenger you have the right to make a claim against any negligent driver. This may be the driver of the car you were riding or the other driver. Either of those claims would be filed against the negligent driver’s auto insurance. In the event that there isn’t enough insurance to cover for your injuries or there is no coverage, you have the option to make the claim under your insurance’s Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage (UM/UIM).

We represent clients on a contingent fee agreement for personal injury matters. This means that you don’t have to pay anything upfront and our initial consultation is completely free. Attorney fees are collected only if there is a recovery in the case. If the case is won, the attorney fees will come out of the amount recovered. Most importantly, we don’t get paid if we don’t win.

Personal injury cases handled in Texas are governed by the Civil Practice and Remedies Code. This Code provides guidance and rules regarding how the court will define and determine damages, liability, negligence, statutes of limitation, duties of care, recovery and more.

Personal injury laws are based on the legal doctrine of negligence, defined as a failure to act with a level of care a “reasonable” individual would have exercised had they been subject to the same set of circumstances.

Duty of care is something every Texas resident is subject to. This “duty” refers to the responsibility and duty of every member of society to act in a responsible way that does not put others at risk of harm. Further, some professionals are held to a separate (and often higher) standard of duty, such as a doctor or employer. A key component of each personal injury case is establishing and proving negligence.

Certain elements required to establish a case include:

  • Determining the existence of a legal duty owed to the plaintiff (you) by the defendant (the “at fault” party)
  • Proving the defendant’s breach or failure to fulfill such duty
  • Establishing and proving injuries and damages
  • Proving that the at fault party’s negligence resulted (at least in part) in causing your injuries.

Our personal injury lawyers are well-versed in establishing fault and proving your case. Call today for a free consultation and to learn more about our process and how we can help make sure you get the representation you deserve.

The Shared Fault Rule in Texas is a comparative negligence rule that determines proportionate responsibility. In short, each party may be responsible “in part” for the accident and subsequent damages and injuries. As such, liability for damages can be designated that are proportionate to the level of fault a party is responsible for.

This rule allows you to potentially collect compensation even if you were partially at fault for the accident. However, Texas adheres to a 51% bar rule, meaning that you are ineligible to collect damages for those injuries which you were 51% or more responsible for.

Our law firm knows what is needed to prove fault and get you maximum compensation. We gather the evidence needed to position your case and argument in the best possible light, ensuring the truth is presented in court.

Call or message today to find out how strong of a case you have against liable third parties.

No. Do not accept any settlement on behalf of an insurance adjuster without consulting with an attorney. Adjusters are paid to settle the cases for as little as possible and as quickly as possible. After an accident, the third party insurance adjuster will try to contact you and convince you to accept their minimum offer. Please don’t fall for this. If someone asks you to sign any documents you don’t fully understand, you might be signing away all your legal rights to recover the settlement you deserve.

This depends on how you handled the situation after the car accident. Texas has a statute of limitations for filing personal injury claims and there are certain requirements that need to be met. If you didn’t seek medical attention or failed to report the incident to the police or your supervisor after the accident, your case may be weakened. Calls us immediately to evaluate your case.

Your health is the most important thing. You should ask for immediate medical attention if necessary. After a doctor determines you are out of danger you should do the following:

  • Report the incident to your supervisor- this is highly important because your employer might deny the accident occurred during work and claim it happened outside of work.
  • Seek for medical attention- a physician needs to make an evaluation and recommend a treatment plan.
  • Call us- you need an experienced attorney by your side.
