Serious accidents cause devastating injuries, emotional stress and economic hardship. Sadly, insurance companies don't see accident victims as real people and families struggling to cope. At the Law Office of Emmett R. Reyes, PLLC, we focus on the individual and families of those we represent. We understand that accidents are not something that people prepare for and dealing with the physical and emotional injuries of accident is not only about legal issues, but also about lending support to our clients and their families.

OIL FIELD INJURIES & EAGLE FORD SHALE
The Eagle Ford Shale is one of the largest deposits of oil and gas resources in the Country. Because of the very attractive energy resources Eagle Ford Shale possesses, oil companies as well as many other energy companies are aggressively drilling wells and other structures in an effort to extract and transport oil and gas to various storage locations.
Unfortunately, the operation of these wells, derricks and drilling equipment is extremely dangerous when worker safety is overlooked so profits can be increased.
If you or someone you know has been injured in the Eagle Ford Shale oilfield, contact our office today to receive the compensation you deserve.
18 WHEELER ACCIDENTS
Drivers of 18-wheelers are often pressured by their employers to drive non-stop without sleep for 24 hours or more to get to their destination on time. This can result in severe fatigue to the driver, reckless driving or driving at excessive speeds. Additionally, 18-wheelers have difficulty stopping their vehicles while going downhill and brake failure or mechanical failure are not uncommon.
Although there are strict legal requirements for ongoing service of 18-wheelers, many employers will ignore these safety standards by poorly maintaining their vehicles to save costs, causing serious potential hazards for their drivers and occupants of passenger vehicles or pedestrians.
A wrongful death claim is one type of personal injury lawsuit filed when someone is killed and the fault lies with another party. In that event, wrongful death damages may be recovered by the deceased's estate, parents, children, and spouse.
Examples would be a personal injury resulting in death, a fatality caused by drunk driving, or a defective product. If someone you know has been killed by the negligence of another, contact our office today to receive a free consultation.
