Products Liability: Texas law allows compensation for someone who has suffered injuries or financial loss from a defective product. A defective product can be dangerous to users due to flaws in its design, deviation from approved manufacturing standards, or insufficient warnings regarding latent dangers. You must have an attorney working for you to take on the manufacturers of products that pass the buck on safety to save a buck in the manufacturing process. Chris has represented victims of defective and dangerous products involving large industrial machines, medical devices, vehicles, and chemical solvents. If you have been injured or suffered financial loss as the result of a defective product, call today! You need an attorney to act quickly and preserve all of the evidence the manufacturers will try to keep from victims.
Medical Malpractice: Medical health care providers and facilities provide valuable services to members of the community. However, sometimes Doctors, nurses, and other providers can perform their services in a manner that is not reasonable or prudent. If that is the case and you have suffered injuries as a result, Texas law allows compensation. The Texas legislature has recently passed new laws that have made medical malpractice lawsuits extremely complex and difficult for the inexperienced attorney. Chris has handled a multitude of medical malpractice suits against hospitals, surgery centers, and independent physicians. You must have an attorney experienced in medical malpractice cases to guide your case through the complicated statutory framework of Texas "MedMal" law.
Premises Liability and On the Job Injuries: Have you or someone you love been injured while on the job? If so, you should know that employers in Texas have "nondelegable"obligations under the law. Employers have a legal obligation to train, supervise, and provide employees with a safe place to work. If your employer has failed to provide a safe place to work, safe tools to perform your work, or has failed to train you or a coworker, and you have been injured as a result, Texas law allows compensation for your injuries.
Have you been injured while at a home or business owned by someone else due to a dangerous condition or a dangerous activity taking place on the premises? If so, you may be entitled to compensation from the person that controlled the premises at the time of your accident. In Texas, someone who owns and/or controls property has an obligation to make it safe and remove hazards for those people invited onto the property. A premises liability case requires preservation of evidence, oftentimes including video surveillance film that may be destroyed or taped-over any day! You need an aggressive attorney working for you to preserve that evidence and get started on your case!
Car Wrecks: Every day, people in our community put others in danger because they are impatient, careless, or just flat out inconsiderate. When someone gets behind the wheel and through their negligence, causes you to suffer injuries, Texas law may allow you to recover compensation. Chris has tried car wreck cases to jury verdicts in Texas and even as far away as Port Angeles, Washington. You need an attorney that is ready, willing, and able to get you all of the compensation you deserve for injuries sustained in a vehicular accident.
18 Wheeler Accidents: Have you been in an accident with an 18 wheeler or other large commercial vehicle? If so, you need an attorney who is familiar with all of the State and Federal requirements imposed on over the road tractor-trailer vehicles, their operators, and their employers. Each company that puts these big trucks on the road must adhere to certain regulations. Did the truck driver that hit you perform a pre-trip inspection? Did the truck driver log all of his or her miles in a log book? Was the driver of the truck overloaded with hours upon hours on the road prior to the accident? These are just some questions that you need answers to. You need an attorney who not only knows what questions to ask, but knows how to hold the negligent parties accountable.
