Practice Areas of Our Austin Personal Injury Lawyer
Personal injury law protects the interests of victims in a wide variety of situations. Our legal team can help you create a strategy, so your case is ready for court or negotiations. Our legal team can help you with cases involving:
Automobile Accidents: There are roughly 6 million automobile accidents in the United States every year. Auto accidents can cause a wide range of injuries, from fatalities to serious soft tissue and limb damage. Some victims find their lives have been irrevocably changed by their injuries or the loss of family. Many of the injuries sustained in an auto accident can leave pain, suffering, and life-long complications.
Truck Accidents: When passenger vehicles, semi-trucks, or tractor-trailers collide, it can lead to large-scale multi-vehicle accidents. These types of accidents can lead to serious injuries or death. A truck collision can be traumatizing. Commercial semi-trucks carry large loads, and when they collide with a passenger car or truck, the incident can be extremely damaging to all parties. If you’ve been hit by a commercial truck, you may have legal options.
Bicycle Accidents: People ride bikes for many reasons, exercise, fun, and even for transportation. For cyclists, riding their bikes on shared roadways can be extremely dangerous. When cyclists are involved in accidents with negligent motorists, they are left with severe injuries – and some accidents are fatal. Even when cyclists wear protective gear, they can still suffer grave injuries in a collision with an automobile or other motorized vehicle.
Pedestrian Accidents: Pedestrians walking on legally allowed roadways, like sidewalks, crosswalks, and parking lots, are not protected from distracted or intoxicated drivers. When automobiles collide with pedestrians, the chances of a fatality or an extremely injurious accident are high – especially if the driver is speeding.
Boat Accidents: Like other motorized vehicles, boat operators have a duty of care to both their passengers and those sharing the open waters. A responsible boat operator should ensure their boat is well maintained and in good condition before setting sail. When boats collide with other objects or crafts on the water, it can result in serious injuries or fatalities.
Wrongful Death: It can be difficult to recover emotionally and financially when your loved one meets an untimely death. If their death was an accident caused by the negligence or disregard of another person, it can make it even more difficult to move on and heal. Depending on the circumstances of the incident, a wrongful death claim may be the appropriate way to handle the situation.
According to Texas law, wrongful death cases are those:
- Caused by the wrongful act of another party
- Caused by the carelessness of another party
- Caused by the negligence of another party
- Caused by the unskillfulness of another party
Filing a wrongful death claim for a deceased loved one means holding the person responsible for their death accountable. Common wrongful death cases include those caused by drunk or distracted driving or other vehicle collisions.
Train Accident: There are many ways a train accident can occur. Sometimes, drivers cross railroad tracks and misjudge the train’s distance. Other times, passengers and workers are hurt by being too close to a train’s speed and power. People encounter trains as they travel in their communities and throughout the state and country. Being injured in a train accident can be devastating. Depending on the size and speed of the train, a passenger can be left with seriously grave injuries. Those involved in train accidents may be left with long-term injuries and disabilities. An attorney may be able to help determine if you have a case.
