When going about our daily activities, we may become prone to dangers from all sides. In some cases, we find ourselves caught up in traffic crashes, sporting accidents, and sometimes, slip and fall accidents. Sadly, most of these accidents are preventable, but for the negligence of another person or business. If you or your loved one has suffered harm under similar circumstances, someone may have failed to maintain their duty of care towards you. And in this case, they are liable for any tangible and intangible losses incurred by you as a result.
Personal injury laws for La Porte allow personal injury victims to recover compensation from the parties at fault for their injuries. However, the process often includes a lot of bureaucracy that may be more advanced than an average victim’s understanding. This necessitates the need for an accredited and experienced attorney to help see you through the process. You don’t have to lose out on full justice compensation just because you don’t know how to maneuver through these legal hurdles. Our La Porte personal injury lawyers can help.
A personal injury case or lawsuit is a legal dispute where an injured party suffers harm due to the negligent actions or inactions of another party. Normally, this negligence results in bodily harm, but may also lead to loss of property. When the affected victim sues the party at fault for compensation, it then becomes a civil case. Separately, a state attorney may file a criminal case to have the liable party punished for violating the law.
The most common scenarios that result in personal injury lawsuits that our lawyers handle include:
Construction site managers and owners have a responsibility of ensuring the safety of their employees and other passersby. In case of an accident to bystanders, they may be sued for compensation. If the construction site employers/employees injure another employee, the employee is required to go through the Workers Compensation process. If the employer does not have Worker Compensation coverage (it’s possible they only have a “work injury” plan, which is not the same), the injured party then can hold the employer responsible with a personal injury claim.
Every motorist has a legal duty of care towards other road users. They must always act responsibly by adhering to traffic rules. Any form of negligence such as drunk driving, distracted driving, or speeding can harm other people, and those injured can hold them accountable for the damages that follow.
Some motorists do not properly look out for motorcyclists, or they believe that motorcyclists have no place on La Porte roads. While this is morally and legally unfounded, motorcyclists and pillion passengers often bear the brunt of reckless and enraged drivers. Luckily, Texas personal injury laws allow such victims to seek compensation from the parties at fault.
Fire accidents tend to be ravaging. Apart from destroying property, they cause unimaginable harm to victims. Some of these injuries are permanent, causing disfigurement and disability. In the worst-case scenario, death may occur. When your life comes to a standstill due to disfigurement or you lose a loved one in a fire accident, our La Porte personal injury lawyer may help you secure your future by fighting for the compensation you deserve. If the fire was a result of someone’s negligence, it’s important to understand your legal rights.
Although slip and fall accidents are often not regarded as serious, they can be fatal. Tripping over wet or cluttered floors may result in severe harm such as permanent spinal injuries or Traumatic Brain Injuries. These can have catastrophic results. A negligent premises owner or manager may be held accountable for their negligence or that of their employees.
