Catastrophic injuries can be tough obstacles to overcome and we want to help you to be able to focus on your own recovery or on the care of an injured family member.
Here are a few examples of the types of personal injury cases we have won for our clients:
One client was helping unload a tractor-trailer owned by a truck lines company that was delivering cargo to a facility. Our client and a co-worker had entered the trailer to prepare the cargo for unloading when without warning the truck driver suddenly moved the trailer. This action caused the trailer to jerk while the men were in the trailer. The movement caused our client to fall, striking his head on the back of the tractor-trailer and on the concrete. He sustained a severe head injury.
Our client was driving her 1997 Chevy pickup truck and was traveling northwest on a Texas State Highway. She activated her left turn signal and slowed to make a lawful southwest turn on to a Farm to Market road. An 18-wheeler, traveling some distance behind of our client violently struck our client’s truck from behind. The 18-wheeler driver took no evasive action to avoid the collision and did not make any hard brake application or significantly slow his vehicle prior to violently striking our client. The driver was cited for “driver inattention”.
Another of our clients was traveling north on a Texas Highway on his way to work. It was dark. A construction company’s 18-wheeler attempted to make a left turn onto a private driveway off of the highway, high centered the trailer on the improved shoulder of the roadway obstructing the entire northbound lane. Despite an attempt to take evasive action, our client was not able to avoid the hazard that had been created by obstructing the northbound lane and struck the trailer at approximately 70 miles per hour.
Our client was operating a boom lift while on-the-job when the lift experienced a catastrophic failure when the weld on the boom failed and caused the boom and platform to fall out from under our client and dropping him over 30 feet to the ground below. This is the equivalent of being dropped off a 3-story building. We filed a products liability claim against the manufacturer.
Our clients were traveling down a dark, rural State Highway when they struck a horse that was in the middle of the road. The horse had gotten loose from a pasture that was near to the road and ran across the highway in front of their car. After striking the horse with the front end of his vehicle, the horse rolled over the vehicle, crushing the roof of the car and causing a life-threatening automobile accident.
