Premises liability (slip and fall) claims, also referred to as slip and fall accidents can hold a negligent property owner or manager accountable for not addressing hazardous or dangerous conditions on their property that they knew about or should have known about.
Mass Tort claims can hold negligent manufacturers or distributors accountable for injuries sustained due to a dangerous or defective product.
When the injured party of a construction site accident is a bystander, they may be entitled to pursue compensation for damages in a personal injury claim.
If the accident victim is a construction worker, they will typically file a workers’ compensation claim. However, in the state of Texas, employers are not required to obtain workers’ compensation insurance. In this situation, if the employer does not have workers’ compensation insurance, the employee can file a personal injury lawsuit to hold their employer and/or third-party contractors, responsible for their devastating work-related injuries.
At our personal injury law firm, our Austin workplace injury lawyers know how to investigate a construction site accident claim and hold negligent employers responsible for their negligence.
Motorcyclists have little protection from negligent motorists and dangerous road conditions. Even the most cautious rider is still at risk of getting into an accident when they’re forced to share the road with negligent motorists. In many cases, the at-fault driver is quick to place the blame for a motor vehicle accident on the injured motorcyclist.
Unfortunately, a serious motorcycle accident can result in devastating or fatal injuries. At our law office, our motorcycle accident attorneys will stand by your side, every step of the way during the claims process, and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for your motorcycle accident injuries and other losses.
Catastrophic injuries sustained in an accident can require months of treatment, or in some cases, lifelong treatment. When a person sustains this type of injury, they may need multiple surgeries, physical therapy, occupational therapy, regular doctor appointments, medication, in-home nursing care, and more.
Examples of catastrophic injuries can include:
At the Amaro Law Firm, our attorneys have the legal experience needed to investigate a catastrophic injury claim and prove an injured client deserves compensation for past and future medical costs, in addition to other damages.
Filing a lawsuit is not always straightforward. It can be a complicated long-term process. The first step, in any case, is to assess whether the statute of limitations has run out. In Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years under Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code §16.003. This means that if a plaintiff tries to file their case two years after their injury, they are barred from bringing a lawsuit in court.
After an Austin personal injury lawyer determines the statute of limitations, they would initiate the pleadings phase by filing a summons and complaint, alleging the facts of the case. Both parties would then assert their claims. If the case makes it past the pleadings phase, it goes to discovery, where each party develops their case for trial. If the case makes it through discovery, it goes to trial, very few cases ever do. At trial, the jury renders a decision, which could be appealed by either party.
After carefully reviewing evidence like the police report (if available), accident scene pictures and witness accounts, an Austin personal injury attorney can figure out each and every party who is responsible for causing the accident. This can be critical when multiple parties share liability. By uncovering all liable parties, a personal injury lawyer can be pivotal to helping you safeguard the value of your claim and setting it up for any possible compensation available.
