The personal injury specialists at our firm are proficient in utilizing the full range of laws associated with physical or emotional injury, loss of life and related damages. Whether you have experienced mild whiplash or catastrophic injuries from a
car accident we are prepared to represent you. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, there were 63,610 serious injury motor vehicle crashes in 2012 which is up from 57,919 the year before. There was also a 9.3 percent overall increase in fatalities caused by avoidable motor vehicle accidents in the state of Texas. The Texas DOT reports that in 2012, there were 1.41 deaths per every 100 million miles traveled.
Based on reportable crashes in 2012:
- 1 person was killed every 2 hours, 35 minutes
- 1 person was injured every 2 minutes, 17 seconds
- 1 reportable crash occurred every 75 seconds
These statistics are staggering. What's more, these statistics indicate a higher motor vehicle accident rate in the state of Texas than in the previous year. In part, this increase in accident statistics is due to the overall increase in roadway traffic. The DOT also issued information indicating that there was a 1.34 percent increase in total miles traveled by vehicles on Texas roads and highways.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
From car accidents to motorcycle collisions and more, there are endless opportunities for motor vehicle drivers and passengers to be injured in an accident of some kind. With the rise in drunk driving accidents, Texas has taken the lead as the state with the highest number of DUI related deaths with 570 killed in 2011. In 2012, the Texas DOT reported that 1,099 individuals were killed in car accidents because of drunk driving. This is a drastic increase from the previous year. Texas drunk driving accident fatality statistics are higher than the national average- 32.3 percent of total car accident fatalities in Texas are caused by drunk drivers.
Truck accidents are also a major problem. When a tired or otherwise negligent driver causes a commercial truck accident, our firm will use the full force of the law to prevail against any corporate trucking company or intimidating insurance carrier. Should one of your loved ones have experienced a
wrongful death at the hands of a drunk driver, it is pertinent that you seek out justice on their behalf. Fully-loaded commercial trucks can weigh tens of thousands of pounds, far exceeding the overall size and weight of a typical passenger vehicle. This is why truck drivers must take extra precautions when operating their vehicles, or else they risk causing a serious accident. No one should have to lose someone close and then be held responsible for all of the financial repercussions and stress.
Our legal team understands the nature and extent of injuries that can occur in the workplace and we work to get you the greatest amount of financial restitution possible for any incidents including construction accidents, harsh chemicals and other harmful conditions. Whether you have fallen victim to an
offshore accident or
oil field accident, we will seek the proper compensation for you. With over 1.2 million workers suffering from work-related illnesses in 2011 alone, it is apparent that this is a major issue that must be handled with the proper legal representation.
The rights of injured workers are of concern to us and we will represent you whether the harm is an accident injury, discrimination, harassment in the workplace or monetary damage related to
overtime law. It is our intention to be of full service to you. If recovery has been denied you in a lower court, we will search for grounds to
appeal and are fully capable to represent your interests in appellate court.
Defective Products/Medical Malpractice
Our attorneys keep abreast of new laws related to product recalls. Defective products, such as the
DePuy Hip Implant, other
defective hip implant products and
transvaginal mesh devices, have been discovered to cause grave illness and injury. Our understanding of these defects can greatly benefit your recovery of damages if you have been harmed or have suffered debilitating injuries from a medical procedure or defective drug. Proving these types of cases and other medical malpractice incidents requires meticulous attention to detail, as well as superior investigatory and evidentiary skills.
