Personal Injury Law

Personal Injury Losses occur across Texas every day.  And each and every personal injury loss is different, each resulting in differing levels of damages, injuries and losses. While many personal injuries are caused by another negligence or momentary lapse of attention, some personal injuries are caused by reckless behavior.

Common acts of negligence that cause personal injury losses include failing to yield the right of way, rear-ending a vehicle,  running a stop light or stop sign or an unsafe lane change. Common acts of reckless disregard occur when a driver operates a vehicle at extreme high speeds, drives under the influence of alcohol or drugs or races another vehicle.

As with most personal injury accident claims, determining who is at fault in an accident is job one.  Fault or who was the cause of a loss can be complicated.  Call our Law Firm we can help.  Our experienced attorneys, investigators and experts can help you determine who was at fault.   We know the laws and will gather the facts and the interview witnesses in order to determine who was at fault for your personal injury loss.

Our experienced personal injury law attorneys know the laws governing legal responsibility and can help you identify who might be held responsible for your injuries, including people or businesses you may not have considered. Unfortunately alcohol is the cause of many personal injury losses.  Many do not realize that every ½ hour, someone in this country dies in an alcohol-related accident or crash. Last year alone, over one million people were injured in alcohol-related accidents.

In some personal injury losses, the loss is caused by factors unrelated to the conduct of any one individual. For example, an accident may occur due to a defect. In some auto accident cases, the loss is caused by a product defect.  In such cases, an automobile manufacturer or a supplier can be held responsible for personal injuries caused by a defect in the automobile under the law of product liability.

A product liability suit is a lawsuit brought against the seller of a product for selling a defective product that caused physical injury to a consumer or user. If a manufacturer of a product creates a defective product-either in designing, manufacturing, or labeling the product-the manufacturer is liable for any injuries the product causes, regardless of whether the manufacturer was negligent.

Poorly maintained roads and/or malfunctioning traffic control signals can also contribute to cause an accident as well. Sometimes improper designs, maintenance issues, construction issues, signage issues, lighting issues or other highway defect issues, including poorly placed trees and utility poles, can cause serious or even deadly accidents. In cases such as this the road construction company or even the State can be held responsible. Special rules apply to claims and lawsuits brought against governmental entities.  Call our Law Firm, good legal advice is critical to preserving and winning such claims.
 
In all of the above cases, it is essential that the victim or his or her family take prompt measures to preserve evidence, investigate the loss and have physicians or other expert witnesses evaluate your personal injury loss. If you have been a victim of a personal injury loss, do not hesitate to call our Personal Injury Attorneys.  Our Team of Personal Injury Lawyers are skilled and experienced in personal injury cases.  Call our Law Firm to assess your situation.
