Do I have a personal injury case? Our Austin personal injury lawyer has the answers…
Our injury lawyers handle all types of civil litigation cases including auto accidents, oil field injuries, accidental slips and falls, 18 wheeler accidents, dog bites and more.
Review the full listing of practice areas below to find out how we can help you or your loved ones in a time of need.
We break down our civil litigation cases into three distinct categories:
While “personal injury” certainly applies to physical injuries to your body, it also applies to unseen injury that affects your emotional state, and even the pain your suffer.
Construction site injury
Dog bites or animal attacks
Oil field injury
Auto Accident injury
These cases are relatively straightforward. If you’re injured in an auto accident caused by the negligent actions of another person, you can seek compensation in the form of a personal injury case. Depending on the circumstances, your Austin personal injury lawyer may seek damages from a variety of sources. One or more insurance companies may be involved, and your attorney could also choose to seek damages against the negligent party.
Our personal injury attorneys most often file wrongful death lawsuits in cases involving negligence, but they sometimes involve intentional crimes like homicide. Most wrongful death cases involve the following situations:
Work related accidents
Automobile, motorcycle, bicycle, and airplane accidents
Occupational exposure to harmful substances (like asbestos)
Faulty products and medications
Additional Personal Injury Practice Areas
- Transportation Law and Trucking
We represent both individuals and corporate clients, such as trucking firms, and others involved in transporting passengers, goods, or both in tort and contract actions in private commerce as well as in compliance actions involving government regulatory agencies such as the Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Highway Administration, Federal Railroad Administration, Surface Transportation Board, and National Transportation Safety Board, to name a few.
- Legal Malpractice Law
As attorneys, we understand the faith and trust our clients place in our efforts to resolve their legal matters. We give each client and their case all our talents and intellect to achieve the best possible result. We expect other attorneys to live up to that standard, but it is not always the case. We have successfully represented clients whose prior attorneys did not act in their best interest.
- Medical Malpractice Law
We are experienced in medical malpractice law and can help clients determine whether or not malpractice has occurred. When some one is injured as a result of negligence or misconduct of a dental or medical professional, a breach of trust has occurred and we help our clients obtain compensation to get on with their lives.
- Serious Motor Vehicle Accidents
Accidents happen. Sometimes, however, you are injured through no fault of your own. The result can be lost wages, damage to personal property or worse. While you may be injured and in pain you also have to deal with the Insurance Companies whose desire is to reduce your claim. We have helped many injured victims win rightful and necessary compensation.
- Nursing Home
Our loved ones deserve the best we can offer but occasionally they are victimized by the very people we hire to care for them. The growing number of elderly in our population has, unfortunately, provided our firm with experience in coping with nursing home abuse and neglect.
- Serious Personal Injury
Our firm represents individuals involved in controversies alleging a wrong or damage to another’s person, rights, reputation, or property resulting from events or activities such as automobile accidents, defective products, infliction of emotional distress, intentional misconduct, and negligence.
- Workers’ Compensation
Our attorneys represent employees who are injured on the job in claims for lost wages and medical treatment expenses against private industry, Federal, and state and local government employers and their workers’ compensation insurers. We handle issues dealing with defenses, fraud, subrogation, and appeals.
Joel helped me out with a difficult case that entailed a lot of complex issues. The facts were very clearly on our side, but as anyone that’s had the misfortune of having to deal with a lawsuit before knows that’s not always enough. Joel and his team did an excellent job making sure the law worked for us as well. On top of that Joel always made time to personally explain all the relevant law, steps we would need to take, and possible outcomes or next steps to me. Attorneys are busy and don’t always have the time to get into that level of detail on every legal issue at play, but Joel always made time. His personal touch and attention to both the case and his client made a difficult situation much easier to navigate. Overall Joel and his team did an excellent job in every aspect of the case and the attorney client relationship. Based on my experience with Joel and his firm I can highly recommend him and his team to anyone in need of his legal counsel.
