If you have been injured in a car accident, what are your rights? While an insurance adjustor may answer your questions, the adjustor works for the insurance company and needs to protect the company's interests. As soon as you come in contact with the insurance company adjuster, they work to lessen their exposure and shift blame on to you if possible.
Rollover accidents are a very common type of automobile accident, most commonly associated with traveling too fast while turning, and driving vehicles that are too top-heavy like pickup trucks, SUVs, and vans. The primary reacting forces associated with rollover accidents are inertia, the force of the tires, and gravity.
If you were hit by an uninsured motorist, you might feel overwhelmed not knowing how your medical bills will be covered from your inability to work during your recovery. Seek legal help immediately from a skilled, board certified personal injury lawyer prepared to help relieve your financial strain.

- Premises Liability
Our attorneys advocate for individuals who have been injured as a result of negligence on someone else's property. Business owners, homeowners, and commercial property owners are liable for accidents that occur on their property and the resulting injuries, such as slip & fall or trip & fall accidents, parking lot/ramp assaults, and stairwell accidents.

We are constantly shocked by the negligence exhibited by day care workers that are entrusted with the safety of children. Our daycare injury lawyers are dedicated to aggressively investigating and pursuing claims for injuries to children caused by careless daycare operators.
- Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice in the United States is a serious issue which has affected the lives of many people. It is estimated that 98,000 Americans die each year due to hospital errors. If you suffered complications following routine surgery, an adverse reaction to a dangerous medication, or a loved one died due to a medical mistake, we can fight to recover fair compensation.
Nursing Home Negligence
Vulnerable older people often cannot defend themselves or report neglect. It is usually family members who notice neglect. If you have a loved one who is not getting appropriate care or has been abused, talk to the nursing home staff. If their explanations do not make sense, talk to our nursing home neglect attorneys about how you may be able to hold the nursing home accountable.
As in any other personal injury case, if you have a potential legal malpractice claim, it is important that you not deal with an insurance company representative yourself. The insurance company will likely work to reduce the amount of compensation you are entitled to receive due to the lawyer's mistakes.
- Workplace Accidents
When a company decides to withhold the protections of the workers compensation laws for its employees, state law allows injured workers to bring claims against their employer if they are injured as a result of negligent conduct. Texas labor law prohibits the employer from claiming that the injuries were caused by the contributory negligence of the victim.
Industrial accidents can cause devastating injuries including burns, catastrophic injuries, amputations, mesothelioma and other horrible injuries including death. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury while on an industrial site (whether on the job or not), you need qualified, board-certified personal injury attorneys working on your side immediately.

Throughout the history of American railroads, brakemen, train engineers, switchmen and other railroad workers have been exposed to hazardous working conditions which can result in serious injury or death. The rights of injured railroad workers are governed by a federal law called the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA).
