By pooling our collective experience and extensive resources, we can provide quality personal injury representation to those who need it most. We have successfully represented thousands of clients throughout Texas.

We have extensive experience in motor vehicle accidents, including car accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, and recreational vehicle/ATV accidents. If you are dealing with the loss of a family member because of a fatal auto accident, we encourage you to contact us. We have successfully represented thousands of clients in motor vehicle accident claims, including many wrongful death claims.

Compensation in Wrongful Death Lawsuits

The types of available compensation in a wrongful death claim depend on the particular facts of each case. For example, children of a fatally injured parent may be entitled to receive damages for loss of parental guidance and reasonable compensation for the loss of a parent’s economic contribution to the household.

With more than 50 years of combined legal experience, we understand the different forms of compensation available to family members in a wrongful death action. If your child, parent, wife, or husband has been injured in a fatal car crash, we will pursue all available means of recovery on your behalf.

Most Fatal Truck Accidents Are Avoidable
The sad truth is that most 18-wheeler accidents, including fatal accidents, are entirely avoidable. Negligent driving, including speeding, drunk driving, tailgating and other forms of careless or aggressive driving, is frequently the cause of a car crash, trucking accident or motorcycle wreck. We hold drivers responsible for their negligence. We aggressively pursue maximum compensation on behalf of each client we represent.

Premise Liability Attorneys – Slip and Fall Lawyers

There’s Great Danger for Premises Liability Victims who go-alone Against the Insurance Companies

Whenever you are opposed by a deep-pocketed institution like the insurance industry, who knows all the ropes when it comes to not paying a claim, representing yourself, or hiring your nephew who is just out of law school to argue his first case is like taking a knife to a gunfight.

The secret to being successful in any legal area is experience and well-won respect by the defendants. A premises liability attorney who has “skins on the wall” gets the insurance company and their attorney’s genuine attention: even more if one of those skins belongs to them. Our Law Firm has over 30 years of experience when it comes to winning premises liability judgments. We also have just as much experience negotiating fair damage compensation packages from these insurance companies. This happens because they know we thoroughly investigate all aspects of any injury case, fairly assess the number of damages owed to our clients, and are fully prepared to take the matter to court if they don’t see reason.

They know if your case is genuinely just, clearly proves the defendant’s liability, and if your damage expectations are fair, they’ll avoid the hazards of a civil trial by settling for a reasonable and fair amount, which means that a trial is avoided, and you have your money.

Here’s a bit of free advice that any lawyer will give you. And it’s very good advice.

Before you speak with an insurance company, or accept even a single dollar of payment or compensation, or sign anything, or attempt to file a lawsuit on your own, you must contact a competent lawyer.

Your legitimate injury claim can yield damage payments for all your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and disability if one applies. At our Texas Law Office, our attorneys have been litigating premises liability cases for over 30 years. We have helped injured Texans recover millions and millions of dollars in personal injury damages: including premises liability.

Once you retain one of our Texas premises injury attorneys, we immediately investigate every aspect of the accident that occurred at the business or home of the person or entity that was negligent. We also perform stringent asset checks on all defendants because you have to have a solvent defendant who can afford to pay you. Without knowing that, what’s the point of filing a lawsuit to begin with?

We meticulously build the strongest case possible and then negotiate just as forcefully with the defendant’s insurance company, or the defendant directly if for some reason there is not an insurance company involved. We can even help you with medical treatment if you are unable to pay for such care. We do it at our expense. In short, we do everything possible under the letter of the law to make certain your rights as an injured Texan are protected, and that the defendants who harmed you are brought to justice.

If you or someone you love has been injured on someone else’s property, then call us today at 1(800) 862-1260 (toll-free) for a free consultation and find out how we can help you. We will be happy to answer any and every question you may have about the specifics in your premises liability case. We’ll help you determine whether you have the right to file a suit and possibly give you a fair estimate of what sort of damage compensation you have a right to expect. Let us help you like we’ve helped hundreds of other injured Texans, through no fault of your own.

Aggressive Insurance Adjusters

Aggressive Insurance Adjusters

As previously mentioned, the last thing that an insurance adjuster wants to do is award a claim for a substantial amount of money to a victim. There may be some instances in which financial incentives in the form of bonuses or raises may be associated with the amount of money that an insurance adjuster can save the company. In these situations, the adjuster is working more for his own good rather than that of an injured victim or bereaved family. To this end, they will often use certain strategies that can be used to see a claim denied or severely diminished. Car Accident Attorney

One strategy that is often used is for the adjuster to attempt to place as much blame on any other party other than their client. If they are successful in placing the majority of the blame on the accident victim, then the claim will be dismissed. Further, if blame can be directed onto multiple parties, then the insured’s client will not have to pay as much in compensation. In short, aggressive insurance adjusters will do whatever necessary to deflect as much blame as possible from their clients. They will badger and inundate the motorcycle accident victim with questions in an attempt to trip up the victim concerning his recollection of the accident. If successful, these missteps will be recorded and used against the victim later to disprove the victim’s memory of the accident. If the attorneys for the defense have conducted a thorough investigation and the plaintiff hasn’t, an insurance adjuster can use the evidence collected in the investigation to build a solid case against the motorcycle accident victim. If you do not have sufficient evidence to support your claim, you have little chance to refute the claims made against you.

Another tactic used by an insurance adjuster is to offer the accident victim or bereaved family quick compensation. Generally speaking, the offer will be accompanied by paperwork that must be signed by the victim before the compensation can be released. This settlement will most often be a low-ball offer. This offer frequently contains a tantalizing amount of money that could be very appealing to a victim who has a need for quick cash. However, if the victim accepts the offer, he must first sign away all his rights to bring a lawsuit against the parties responsible for his injuries. If an insurance adjuster can contact a victim before he or she has the opportunity to obtain legal representation, the adjuster’s chances of settling the case for the least amount of money is increased. Often, when the adjuster cannot get the case dismissed, a low-ball settlement offer is the next best choice.motorcycle accident attorneys corpus christi
