Houston Semi-Truck Accident lawyer

Many drivers experience a sense of unease when driving next to a semi-truck, flatbed truck, or other large commercial truck. The fear is understandable. Large commercial trucks can cause devastating damage in a wreck. Fallen cargo from a commercial truck can also lead to terrible accidents.

If you were hurt or a loved one was killed in a wreck involving a commercial truck, you may be able to bring a personal injury claim and seek damages. However, to bring a successful claim, you will need ample supporting evidence.

Houston Surgical Malpractice lawyer

Undergoing any type of surgical procedure can be frightening. While most surgeries are successfully completed without issue, unexpected problems can arise. Sometimes, these problems are unavoidable. Other times, the negligent, careless, or illegal actions of a medical professional caused the problems. If you were hurt or a loved one died due to a surgical error, it is important to understand your rights. You may be entitled to financial compensation for surgical and medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

Surgical Mistakes Can Lead to Long-Term Medical Problems

Surgical errors can take many different forms. A surgeon may nick an artery or nerve, causing additional medical issues for the patient. Anesthesiologists may administer too much or too little anesthesia or fail to recognize dangerous drug interactions. Failure to properly monitor the patient for signs of distress during surgery can also lead to dangerous or deadly mistakes.

Houston brain injury lawyerAs with most types of injuries, traumatic brain injuries differ in severity. Some people suffer a concussion, a mild form of traumatic brain injury, and do not even realize they are concussed. Other traumatic brain injury (TBI) sufferers are left incapacitated for the rest of their lives. A TBI may be caused by a fall, physical assault, work accident, car crash, or any other incident that damages the brain. If you or a loved one suffered a brain injury, you may be entitled to monetary damages.  

Personal Injury Claims and Traumatic Brain Injuries

Texas law allows an individual to file a personal injury claim and seek financial restitution if they are injured by another party’s negligence or wrongful act. A party acts negligently when that party fails to uphold a duty of care. For example, a doctor owes patients a duty to act with a reasonable degree of competency during medical procedures. Drivers have a duty to drive responsibly and follow traffic laws. Property owners have a duty to maintain a reasonably safe property for invitees.

Financial Compensation for Losses

The term “damages” refers to the negative consequences of an injury such as a traumatic brain injury. In Texas, a personal injury claim may result in the recovery of both financial damages and non-financial damages.

Houston hearing loss injury lawyerOur ability to hear is something that most of us take for granted until something happens to reduce that ability. Whether it is listening to our favorite music, enjoying a conversation with loved ones, or completing job responsibilities, we use our sense of hearing every day. When a work accident, car crash, or another incident causes hearing loss, the results can be devastating. If you or a loved one suffered hearing loss in an unexpected accident, you may be interested in exploring your legal options.

Hearing Loss Caused by Work Accidents

Our ears are sensitive to loud, sudden noises as well as prolonged exposure to noise. Individuals who work around heavy equipment, such as construction workers or oil rig workers, may suffer hearing loss because of extremely loud equipment. These workers may also suffer hearing problems because of an explosion or blowout. Whatever the cause, losing your ability to hear can dramatically impact your life.

Some workers who suffer hearing loss may be entitled to compensation through their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. However, workers’ compensation is not required in Texas. Furthermore, offshore oil rig workers subject to the Jones Act are unable to recover compensation through workers’ compensation. However, workers who are hurt on the job may have the right to sue their employers for damages if the employer’s negligence caused or contributed to the accident.
