Protect Yourself With Edinburg Personal Injury Attorney
When you are injured in an accident in Texas, one of the potential options you have is suing the person who is at fault for the accident. Keep in mind, Texas statutes of limitations means you have only two years to file a lawsuit and in order to do so, you must prove the other person was largely at fault for the accident. Texas has a “shared fault” statute which means that if the finding is that you were partially responsible for the accident that caused your injury, your final award could be reduced by that percentage. Some of the accidents we handle at Ramón Law Firm include:
More than 235,000 people were injured in car accidents on Texas roadways and more than 3,500 people lost their lives. Recovering financially after an auto accident requires the assistance of a personal injury attorney.
Nearly 2,000 Texas residents were injured in motorcycle accidents during 2014. Motorcycle injuries are typically very serious because victims have less protection from injuries than those who are in automobiles. Victims are entitled to sue the responsible party for lost wages and for medical costs.
Large truck accidents
There were more than 33,000 commercial vehicles involved in accidents on Texas roadways during 2014. Regardless of what type of vehicle is involved in an accident with a large truck, the potential for very serious injuries is significantly higher due to the sheer size of the vehicles.
Property owners have a responsibility to ensure that those who are on their property remain safe. This means ensuring there is a reasonable level of security, making sure that stairwells are safe and making sure appropriate warning signs are displayed on wet or slippery surfaces. Slip and fall accidents can result in back injuries or spinal cord injuries which can mean life-long incapacity for victims.
Defective or malfunctioning products
Unfortunately every year, thousands of people suffer injuries as a result of a product that is defective upon manufacturing or because a product malfunctions while it is still under warranty. Some of the common recalls include automobiles, power tools and automobile tires. Victims who suffer an injury as a result of a product defect can hold manufacturers responsible for the costs associated with their injury.
Medical practitioners have a responsibility to treat their patients with the best level of care possible. In some cases, physicians prescribe the wrong medications, miss a diagnosis or make surgical errors. Doctors can be held accountable when their errors cause injury or exacerbate an illness.
Under Texas statutes, wrongful death suits are filed when another person is responsible for the death of a loved one. Only in cases of medical malpractice are awards limited and family members who have lost a loved one should contact an attorney to determine what steps to take to file a civil suit.
