Personal Injury

There are many types of personal injuries. Damages from a car accidents are one way that you can suffer personal injuries but not all personal injuries are the result of car accidents. Any injury you receive because of the action, inaction or negligence of another is considered a personal injury and you may be entitled to compensation and medical treatment from the wrongdoer or their insurance carrier. If you’re not sure if your injury qualifies as a personal injury, contact us and we’ll answers any questions you have. We’ll apply the law to your unique situation, and explain it in a way that makes sense to you. Turn your questions into compensation in just a few minutes.

Some examples of personal injuries are

  • Intentional Torts: Sometimes a wrongdoer does something intending to cause or a loved one injury. An intentional tort is a wrongful act that a person intends to commit which causes injury. Thus, these types of torts required the wrongdoer to act with the intent to cause certain conduct. For example, assault and false imprisonment are both intentional torts. In the case of assault, the wrongdoer must have intended to cause offensive contact and bodily injury. False imprisonment requires an illegal detention (with or without physical contact) without your consent and without a valid legal reason. We have won settlements for clients who have been the victim of assault and false imprisonment. Many times we are able to get the insurance companies to settle these cases because of our experience in handling these types of cases. If you’ve been assaulted or held anywhere against your will, you may be entitled to compensation.
  • Defective products: When a manufacturer places a defective product in a store, they must make sure that the product is safe for its intended purpose. They should also have the proper warnings labels affixed to their product. However, sometimes manufacturers make mistakes that place consumers at unreasonable risk for injuries because of a design, manufacturing or marcuseting defects in their product. No manufactures should place profits above public safety and when they do, they should be held liable. We are the ones to call when you’ve experienced an injury because of a defective product.
  • Pedestrian accidents: According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2013 Texas ranked 3rd highest in the nation for fatal pedestrian accidents. Unfortunately, many pedestrian accidents involve hit and run drivers. Sometimes driver’s may not even be aware that they’ve struck someone. Driver’s should always be cautious when driving in areas with little or no light or when approaching inoperable vehicles on the road. Sec. 550.021 of the Texas Transportation Code makes it a criminal offense for failing to stop at the scene of an accident which resulted in injury to another.
  • Bicycle Accidents: In Texas if you’re injured while operating a bicycle, you may be entitled to treatment and compensation for your injuries. Distracted drivers, speeding motorist and the negligent operation of vehicles can lead to accidents involving bicyclist. Many times, these types of accidents could have been prevented. Bicyclist have the rights and responsibilities applicable to a driver operating a vehicle in most circumstances.
  • Negligence: Negligence encompasses such a large area of tort law that it almost seems as if it could include just about every wrongful act…but it doesn’t. In order for a person or company to be liable for their negligence, there must be a legal duty and then a breach of that legal duty which causes you damages (injuries). A skilled personal injury lawyer knows what it takes to prove negligence. If you’ve been harmed because of another’s negligent actions, you could be entitled to money for your pain and suffering, mental anguish, lost wages or other damages. Call us, we’re here to help.
  • Gross negligence: When a wrongdoer makes a conscious decision to act with reckless disregard for the safety of others or is indifferent towards the rights, safety and welfare of others, that wrongdoer may be considered to be grossly negligence. Think of gross negligence as the law’s way of saying “Hey! You should have known that your conduct was likely to hurt someone…but you still decided to do it anyway.” Naturally, these wrongdoers are punished harsher than someone who was involved in an accident, merely because grossly negligent wrongdoers should have known better. Gross negligence may pose an extreme risk to the public at large and in Texas if a wrongdoer is found to be grossly negligent, then you may be entitled to more compensation, especially if the wrongdoer acted with malice. Was the person who injured you grossly negligent? Were they acting with malice when they injured you? Great questions. Let us answer all your questions.
