Personal Injury / Wrongful Death
An automobile accident is usually caused by one person's negligence. In legal terms, that means that the person failed to exercise reasonable care to prevent the accident. If a driver was negligent and caused an accident that caused you damages, you may be entitled to recover for those damages, either directly from the individual or through his insurance coverage.
You may be able to recover past and future medical expenses and past and future lost wages, as well as a monetary sum for your pain and suffering and mental anguish. Mental anguish and pain and suffering are intangible damages and can often be difficult to value, but typically the more serious an individual's injuries, the more valuable these claims will be.
If a person is killed in an accident, then his or her spouse, children and parents have wrongful death claims, provided someone else's negligence caused the accident and death.
One of the scariest things about driving on an interstate is the thought that an eighteen-wheeler may run over you when its brakes fail or when its driver doesn't see you until it is too late to stop his truck.
Big rigs and trucks kill people regularly because drivers are too sleepy and too tired to react quickly enough to stop or prevent an accident. Often eighteen-wheelers will park in the middle of a road or cross a road when traffic is coming without regard for other drivers. Trucks are often out of compliance with U.S. Department of Transportation regulations if truck tires are worn and not aired properly.

In today's society, we buy products expecting them to be safe and useable for the purpose for which they were sold. Unfortunately that is not always the case. Gas stoves explode. High chairs fall apart and other products break causing severe injuries and deaths. Often these accidents could have been prevented had the consumer been warned of the dangers or if the product had been designed better.
In Texas, Worker's Compensation Insurance prevents an employee from suing his employer for injuries sustained in the course and scope of employment. An employee's family may sue the employer if the employer's gross negligence causes that employee's death. An employee may sue a different company or person for causing his job injury if they are not his employer. This is often referred to as a "Third Party Claim." If a company does not have Worker's Compensation Insurance, an employee may sue his employer for on-the-job injuries provided that such injuries are caused by the employer's negligence.
