Slip and Fall Accidents
Serious Personal Injury
When a person is killed as a result of someone else’s negligent or reckless acts, the death is considered wrongful. The responsible party can be held liable by the family of the victim if the family files a civil wrongful death lawsuit. Wrongful death can be caused by a myriad of different actions: car accidents, elder abuse, and defective products are just a few unfortunately common examples. The wrongful death lawyers at our firm near San Jose believe in aggressively and compassionately representing the loved ones of victims. Because of the Texas statute of limitations, it is important to seek the legal counsel of an expert attorney as soon as possible to ensure your case’s viability. Among the recoverable damages in a wrongful death suit are medical and funeral costs, lost income, benefits, and even compensation for pain and suffering.
Our firm has incredible resources available to assist in the investigation of your claim. We have over two decades of experience to use on your behalf. If you have reason to believe that your loved one was a victim of wrongful death, it is crucial that you get in touch with one of our wrongful death lawyers as soon as possible.
Construction sites pose many dangers to workers and others in the area. Construction workers must often lift heavy objects, operate large machinery, and perform job duties at elevated heights. Still, proper protocol and safety practices can decrease a worker or passerby’s risk of being injured in construction accidents. Our city is gaining more commercial and residential structures every year, and it is essential that the safety of the people who build them is protected. More on this website
When preventable construction accidents occur as a result of someone’s negligence, he or she may be liable for the victim’s injuries. For example, a supervisor at a construction site is responsible for enforcing safety measures. Employers of construction workers must properly train their employees. Companies that manufacture construction equipment are liable if their products prove to be defective.
Some of the most common construction accidents include slips, falls, electrocution, injuries caused by cranes and other heavy equipment, and eye injuries from falling debris and other incidents. If you have been injured in a construction accident, you may be eligible for compensation. Our Law Office has experience litigating cases involving construction accidents.

Despite the fact that flying remains one of the safest ways to travel, aviation accidents still occur. At this time, piloting aircraft — especially small, single-engine planes — is considered to be one of the top three most dangerous jobs in the United States. Whether a private, commercial, or industrial plane is involved, when an aviation accident happens, serious injuries and fatalities almost always result. At our Law Office, our personal injury lawyers understand the various laws and regulations that should be followed to protect the safety of passengers and pilots. If you believe that your injuries or the loss of your loved one were caused by negligence, violation of flight regulations, or the aircraft itself, we can help. With access to experienced investigators and analysts, our firm knows how to go up against even the largest companies. Schedule a free case review right now.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Although many people assume that slip and fall accidents only happen to the elderly, this type of accident is one of the most common in the United States. Everything from wet, slippery, or uneven floors, to the lack of adequate lighting can cause a person to slip, fall, and sustain painful injuries. In fact, a list of frequent slip and fall accident injuries includes traumatic brain injury, spinal cord damage, and fractures of the hip, pelvis, arms, legs, and skull.
Slip and fall accidents are grouped under premises liability. Premises liability means that the owner of the property is legally responsible for any preventable or hazardous condition. However, the validity of these suits is judged on a case-by-case basis, making it all the more important that victims seek professional legal counsel from a qualified attorney. If you or a family member have been injured on someone else’s property, please contact one of our personal injury lawyers today.
Serious Personal Injury
Brain, burn, and spinal cord injuries are three of the most devastating forms of personal injury. Each of them can lead to chronic medical conditions that affect every single aspect of the victim’s life. When they are caused by another person’s recklessness or negligence, the victim has a right to receive compensation for their wrongful acts. More on this website
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) ranks as one of the most common injuries in the United States, often occurring during motor vehicle collisions and construction accidents. A TBI can cause conditions ranging from mental and behavioral health problems to extensive paralysis, and some victims are left indefinitely in a comatose state.
Second- and third-degree burns are often linked to dangerous construction sites and defective products that are not properly wired. Because the skin is the body’s first line of defense against illness, severe burn injuries often lead to further health problems over time. Recovering from extensive burns is long and difficult, and usually involves numerous reconstructive surgeries.
Spinal Cord Injury
The spinal cord extends from the brain, sending crucial messages and nerve pulses throughout the body. Together, the brain and spinal cord comprise the central nervous system. Damage to the spinal cord is almost always irreversible because, unlike other nerve cells, brain and spinal cord cells are unable to regenerate after injury. At nearly 50 percent, motor vehicle accidents are the most common cause of all spinal cord injuries, followed closely by falls.
If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI, severe burn, or spinal cord injury as a result of someone else’s reckless or negligent actions, please contact our personal injury lawyers today. We know how difficult these cases can be, and we can help you win the justice you deserve.
