How Will We Handle Your Case in Houston, TX?
Our attorneys represent families and individuals who have suffered harm as a result of someone else’s carelessness or disregard for safety in Houston. We represent people who have been injured in car accidents caused by other drivers and slip and fall accidents caused by unsafe conditions on a property.
For example, if you or your loved one fell and sustained an injury while shopping at a store, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your medical bills and pain and suffering. Commercial businesses have an obligation to keep their premises safe for visitors and to warn of any hazards. If a business failed to correct unsafe conditions, remove hazards or provide adequate warning of the condition, the business may be liable for your injuries. Let us review the specific facts of your accident free of charge and explain your legal options for seeking compensation.
Our Houston personal injury lawyers also represent people injured in burns and explosions and maritime accidents or oil field injuries. Many cargo handling areas have multiple contractors working near each other. If another contractor’s negligence caused your injuries, you may have a right to seek compensation for your injuries.
Our law firm also investigates cases of nursing home neglect and abuse. You have a right to trust that your loved one will receive attentive care in a nursing home. Unfortunately, some nursing homes in Texas communities are understaffed and nursing home residents are neglected or in some instances abused. A nursing home should be held accountable when a resident suffers neglect or abuse. Filing a lawsuit against a nursing home can prevent other nursing home residents from suffering similar harm. Our attorneys pursue claims on behalf of people who have been harmed by abuse in assisted living centers, nursing homes and elder care situations. We will work to get your loved one placed in a safer living situation.
