Our Skilled Houston Lawyers Are Experienced in All Areas of Personal Injury Law
Regardless of the specific type of accident, personal injury claims are managed in much the same way. However, you want a lawyer who has experience in the specific type of case you are filing because they will know what the likely cause was, what kind of evidence to gather, and what the claim could be worth.
At SJ Injury Attorneys, we are experienced in the following types of personal injury claims.
Car accidents involve collisions between vehicles, often leading to injuries such as whiplash, fractures, and more severe trauma. We assist victims in securing compensation for medical expenses and other damages.
Truck accidents, due to the size and weight of a commercial vehicle, can result in catastrophic injuries. At SJ Injury Attorneys, we navigate complex regulations to ensure that our clients receive fair compensation from truckers and their corporate employers for injuries and losses.
Motorcycle accidents pose unique risks, often resulting in severe injuries or fatalities. Our team advocates for bikers, helping them obtain compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering in the face of bias and blame.
Accidents in Texas plants and refineries can lead to serious injuries, including burns and chemical exposure. We help workers pursue compensation for injuries sustained in industrial environments.
Wrongful death cases arise when a person's death is caused by another's negligence. Our compassionate lawyers assist grieving families in pursuing legal action to hold responsible parties accountable and seek compensation for the loss of their loved one.
Work injuries cover a range of accidents and illnesses occurring on the job. When your Texas employer has opted out of participating in the workers' compensation system, you need work injury attorneys who will take on your non-subscriber employer to get you the compensation you deserve through a personal injury claim.
Construction accidents involve injuries on construction sites, from falls to machinery accidents. We help workers secure compensation beyond workers' compensation for injuries sustained on the job.
Product liability cases focus on injuries caused by defective products. We help victims hold manufacturers accountable, seeking compensation for injuries resulting from faulty products, including products made with talcum powder and the weed killer Roundup®.
Slip and fall accidents can occur in stores, restaurants, movie theaters, and shopping malls, leading to injuries such as fractures and head trauma. Our personal injury attorneys assist victims in proving negligence and pursuing compensation for their injuries.
Nursing home negligence cases involve the mistreatment or neglect of elderly residents. At SJ Injury Attorneys, we advocate for the rights of seniors, seeking compensation for injuries and holding negligent facilities accountable.
Daycare abuse cases address the harm inflicted upon children in daycare settings. Our personal injury lawyers help parents pursue legal action against abusive caregivers or negligent daycare facilities, seeking justice for the affected children.
Who Can You Hold Liable in Texas When These Accidents Occur?
Personal injury cases arise from a range of situations where negligence or wrongful actions lead to harm. Identifying the responsible parties, or defendants, is crucial for seeking justice and compensation for the victims. With most of these defendants, your lawyer will be dealing with the insurance companies that cover them through automobile, homeowner's, business, or malpractice policies, not with the individual and their personal assets.
The following are examples of typical defendants in personal injury cases.
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a leading cause of accidents. Intoxicated drivers exhibit impaired judgment, coordination, and reaction times. Drunk drivers can be held accountable through criminal charges, and victims can pursue civil claims to seek compensation for medical expenses, property damage, and pain and suffering.
Irresponsible business owners
Business owners who neglect safety regulations or fail to maintain a safe environment may expose patrons or employees to hazards, resulting in injuries. Negligent business owners can be held accountable through personal injury claims. Victims can seek compensation for injuries sustained on the premises due to the owner's negligence.
Reckless driving encompasses behaviors such as speeding, aggressive maneuvers, and disregard for traffic laws, leading to accidents and injuries. Victims of reckless driving can pursue personal injury claims against the at-fault driver. Evidence of reckless behavior strengthens the case for compensation.
Manufacturers of defective products
Defective products, from faulty machinery to unsafe consumer goods, can cause injuries. Manufacturers may be liable for design flaws, manufacturing errors, or inadequate warnings. Product liability claims hold manufacturers accountable for injuries caused by their products.
Negligent property owners
Property owners who neglect maintenance or fail to address hazards may be liable for injuries sustained on their premises, such as slip and fall accidents and dog bites. Personal injury claims against negligent property owners can help victims obtain compensation for injuries and damages caused by hazardous conditions on the property.
Medical malpractice occurs when health care providers fail to adhere to the standard of care, leading to patient injuries or wrongful death. Medical malpractice lawsuits allow patients to hold negligent health care professionals and their employers accountable. Victims can seek compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Construction accidents often result from negligence, inadequate safety measures, or defective equipment, causing injuries to workers or bystanders. Workers' compensation and third-party liability claims are common avenues for seeking damages.
