Statistically, a vast majority of drivers have been in at least one auto accident in their lifetime.  Although these accidents vary in severity, ranging from a minor inconvenience to a devastating loss of life, the cumbersome duty of battling with insurance companies remains the same.  Insurance companies are designed to make profits and limit the compensation you and your family are entitled to.  We know how to deal with the challenges of difficult insurance companies.  Allowing our office to alleviate this burden gives you the opportunity to focus on your physical and emotional well-being after an accident.  Feel free to contact us for a free analysis of your auto accident case.

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.

Texas has always been a steady contributor of the oil and gas industry, providing jobs to thousands of hard-working people and helping enrich the economy.  However, the work can be dangerous and life threatening.  Injuries arise when unsafe practices are implemented due to the pressure companies face.  Unsafe working environments and poor training are just a few scenarios that can lead to catastrophic consequences.  Medical attention is always the first right action to take with any injury.  Our law office can guide you through the next steps when legal action is required to hold all responsible parties liable.  Injuries can be caused by, but are not limited to:  

  • Explosions
  • blow outs
  • hazardous chemicals
  • faulty machinery

Wrongful Death

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.
