Areas of Law Description
Our practice includes:
* Aircraft Accidents
Typically, there are four main groups of people that are responsible for these types of accidents: a) owner and operator of the aircraft; b) the manufacturer(s); c) contracted maintenance crew; and d) the federal government. Often times, the carelessness of multiple individuals and groups lead to this tragic crash.
The inhalation of asbestos fibers by workers can cause serious diseases of the lungs and other organs that may not appear until years after the exposure has occurred. Those individuals who worked for years in industries in which asbestos was used heavily are at the greatest risk for contracting an asbestos related illness.
* Auto Accidents
With more and more cars on the road and with the increase in electronic devices used while driving, your chances of being in a collision are increasing. If you or a loved one was involved in a wreck, you need to move quickly to protect your legal rights. At Sutliff & Stout, each case is handled by an experienced lawyer in Houston, TX.

* Products Liability
Any product has the potential of causing significant injuries however certain products become defective or are manufactured defective from the beginning. If you have suffered a personal injury from a defective product you may want to consider filing a products liability lawsuit.
* Oil and Gas
Throughout its storied past, Texas has been home to numerous prospectors and explorers searching every inch of land for that illusive gusher. Throughout Texas jurisprudence, a mineral owner’s right to enter and extract his find has been equally explored. Indeed, the mineral owner’s rights are some of the well-settled, bedrock tenets of the Texas property law.
* Pedestrian Accidents
The delicate balance of roadway safety relies on the interplay between people and cars obeying traffic laws, but unfortunately, such is not always the case. As the pedestrian accident attorneys of our firm see too often, it is within human nature to sidestep the traffic regulations for a multitude of reasons – stress, traffic jams, impatience, and sometimes even power trips.
* Slip and Fall
Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere, but are most common in high foot traffic areas such as the grocery story, shopping mall, school or an office. A slip and fall may be caused by an uneven floor, defective flooring, inadequate lighting or a number of other known hazards.
* Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury is especially catastrophic because such injuries can lead to paralysis. If the injury is high in the spinal cord, the result can be quadriplegia, or the loss of sensation and motor movement from the neck down. If the spinal cord injury is high enough in the neck (also called the cervical region) it can cause the injured person to die because the brain is unable to communicate with the rest of the person’s body.
* Train Accidents
Following an injury while working on the railroad, it is critical that an injured railroad worker to speak with an experienced FELA attorney. Our railroad injury lawyers can help you determine your options and make sure that you are being treated fairly. When you have been injured, it affects you and your family.
* Trucking Accidents
If you or someone you care about was involved in a significant trucking collision, don’t wait to hire an experienced Houston truck accident lawyer. Why? Because within hours of a collision, the trucking company and its insurance company are hard at work trying to minimize their financial and legal responsibility.
* Wrongful Death
The loss of a loved one due to the carelessness of another is one of the most traumatic events a family can experience. In addition to the pain, grief and emotional loss, family members must deal with moving into the future without their loved one. This requires a great deal of things to be done to secure the family’s legal and financial future.
