Premises Liability. When you or your family members enter a business you rightfully expect a certain amount of safety measures to be in place. If that reasonable expectation is proved incorrect, and you are injured, you may have a premise liability case. This kind of claim arises when another person or business' failure to provide a safe environment contributes to or causes your injury. Common types of premise liability claims include the following: slip and fall, swimming pool accidents, animal bites, and retail accidents.
Workplace Injuries. Every employee in Texas has the right to a safe workplace. If your injury was caused by another employee, independent contractor, or an unsafe workplace, you may have a claim for a lawsuit in Texas to hold the responsible individual or business accountable. Our legal team is aware of the devastating short term and long term effects a workplace injury can have on the victim. Attorneys at the firm use their experience to fight for you, to recover fair and reasonable compensation for the damage caused. Damages include compensation for medical bills, past and future lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Wrongful Death and Survival Actions. A wrongful death is a death that has been caused by the fault of another person. Examples include drunk driving, a dangerous or defective product, construction of an unsound structure or building, or nursing home negligence. Wrongful death claims are generally filed by family members or beneficiaries of the person who died. The damages that may be recovered in Texas include: expenses associated with the death, loss of companionship, pain, suffering or mental anguish suffered by the survivor of the decedent.
