Here to Fight for Big Compensation

“What Do Personal Injury Lawyers Do?”

Personal injury lawyers help personal injury victims recover compensation for their injury-related expenses. When accident victims are injured due to someone else’s negligence, a personal injury law firm can help them get fair compensation. Personal injury lawyers work on a wide variety of personal injury cases.

Some of the most common things personal injury attorneys see include wrongful death, truck accidents, medical malpractice, car accidents, fall accidents, workplace accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, premises liability, and more.

“Why Do Personal Injury Clients File a Claim?”

Let’s say you were injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault. You’ve got injury-related expenses like you wouldn’t believe: medical expenses, lost wages, emotional trauma, and more. You file a personal injury claim with the insurance company and the insurance company offers you a settlement.

The problem is that the settlement the insurance company offered you isn’t nearly enough to cover all your medical bills, plus the lost wages. This is where a personal injury lawyer can really help out. Personal injury attorneys negotiate with insurance companies in order to reach a settlement that’s fair.

When clients walk into a personal injury trial law firm, some of them have sustained some very severe injuries such as spinal injuries, neck injuries, soft tissue injuries, head injuries, and more. These clients have been injured by someone else’s negligence and the insurance companies don’t seem to care if the client is left holding the medical bills. Personal injury attorneys work to help ensure that the injured party doesn’t have to pay for the medical bills.

“Can Your Personal Injury Attorneys Help with Car Accidents?”

A personal injury lawyer may be able to help you with getting compensation for the serious injuries you sustained in a car accident. But it’s not just car accidents that our legal team has experience with.

“Isn’t the Personal Injury Claim Process Long?”

A personal injury case can take a long time. Some personal injury cases take just a few months. If you’re filing a personal injury claim, and you’ve got concerns regarding the length of time your personal injury case will take, it may be a good idea to discuss these concerns with your personal injury attorney.

This is why having an experienced personal injury attorney can help you find peace of mind. If your attorney has worked on personal injury cases like yours, they’ll likely have a good idea of what to expect with your personal injury case.

“Do I Need a Fort Worth Personal Injury Attorney?”

If you’ve been injured in Fort Worth, you don’t necessarily need a Fort Worth personal injury attorney. If you’ve been injured in Fort Worth, you will need an attorney who is licensed in Texas. Though a Fort Worth personal injury lawyer may be closer to you, you may benefit from working with a law firm that’s outside of Fort Worth.

Not every Fort Worth personal injury lawyer is going to have your best interests in mind.

Wrongful death claims happen when a person is fatally injured due to the negligent actions of another party.

“What Is Premises Liability?”

Premises liability claims are filed when a person is injured on someone else’s property. According to premises liability, property owners are responsible for keeping their properties safe for guests and implied invitees. And this isn’t just limited to commercial property owners; residential property owners also have a legal duty to keep their properties safe.

Let’s say you’re invited over to your friend’s house and you slip and fall in a puddle of soda that your friend forgot to clean up. In that circumstance, your friend may be liable for your injuries.

“So You’re Saying I Should Sue My Friends?”

This is actually what insurance is for! If you’re injured at a friend’s house, their homeowner’s insurance should pay for the cost of your injuries. If their homeowner’s insurance isn’t offering enough to cover the cost of your injuries, an attorney can help negotiate a higher settlement with the insurance provider.

The purpose of having insurance, whether it’s homeowner’s insurance or car insurance, is to protect you in cases such as the aforementioned. When you pay the insurance premium each month, you’re paying for protection against being the one left with the bill.

Here’s How Homeowner’s Insurance Protects You

When you purchase insurance for your home, you’re purchasing protection from many different situations. Depending on your policy, your homeowner’s insurance may pay for damages done to your home or injuries sustained on your property. You’ll pay a regular fee, or premium, in exchange for coverage.

When it comes to homeowner’s insurance, your premium is largely determined by the likelihood of an accident occurring on your property. If the insurance provider believes that an accident is more likely to occur, the rates will usually be higher. The amount of coverage you have, and the situations under which your insurance will pay, will vary from policy to policy.

The maximum amount the insurance company will pay is called the policy limit. Though it will depend on the circumstances, and your specific policy, if a person is injured on your property, your insurance will likely offer the injured party a sum to compensate them for their injuries. Attorneys usually get involved when the sum isn’t enough to fully pay for all the injury-related expenses.

Reducing Your Liability

A person can take all the precautions in the world and injury can still happen, and personal injury lawsuits may still be filed. However, while it may be impossible for property owners to completely eliminate their liability, it is possible for property owners, both residential and commercial, to reduce their liability. You can reduce your liability by taking reasonable precautions.

Though there’s no set definition for exactly which precautions are reasonable, there are general guidelines that are good to follow. Reasonable precautions usually refer to the precautions a person of ordinary prudence would take.

Removing Hazardous Conditions

You can begin to reduce your chances of a lawsuit by removing hazardous conditions from your property. If you live in an area that sees a lot of snow and/or ice, you may wish to salt all walkways and stairs leading up to your porch. Shoveling may also help protect you from a lawsuit. Though removing hazardous conditions is always the best way to reduce liability, not all hazards are able to be removed.

Let’s say that the wood on your stairs is rotting away and you know this. When you have guests over, you may decide to tell them not to use the stairs. Or, let’s say there’s a sinkhole outside. It’s not an obvious one and a person could easily break their ankle if they were to trip in that.

It may help to not only warn your guests–especially if they’re going to be outside, or near the sinkhole–but you may decide to put up signs so that guests know exactly where it is, and are able to avoid it. Though you may not be able to remove every hazard, it’s still important to take reasonable precautions to mitigate the chances of injury.

Attractive Nuisance: Here’s What You Need to Know

If there was ever a legal term for “ooooh shiny,” it would be an attractive nuisance doctrine. The attractive nuisance doctrine applies mostly to children, but under certain circumstances, it can apply to adults as well. An attractive nuisance can be anything that is potentially dangerous and would lure a child onto a property.

Children are often unable to accurately predict the consequences of their actions and foresee the possibility of injury. Therefore, in most states, property owners have a higher duty of care toward children.

“What Things Could be Considered an Attractive Nuisance?”

The short answer is pretty much anything. Although anything can be argued to be an attractive nuisance, some things are more commonly considered to be an attractive nuisance than others. Animals, swimming pools, empty buildings, construction projects, decorations, and playground equipment are commonly considered to be attractive nuisances.

Land formations, such as ponds, lakes, or rivers, may also be considered to be an attractive nuisance. If you have something on your property that may be interesting to a child who isn’t able to foresee the dangers of interacting with the aforementioned attractive nuisance, you may have a duty to take reasonable precautions in order to prevent the child from sustaining an injury on your property.

“What if They Were Trespassing?”

A lot of people believe that they aren’t responsible for injuries that happen to trespassers, therefore if a child trespasses onto their property, they aren’t liable for that child’s injuries. But this isn’t necessarily true. It is true that property owners generally aren’t liable for injuries that trespassers sustain on their property.

However, when it comes to children, that is people under the age of 18, they are rarely if ever, considered to be trespassers. If you know that children regularly stroll through your yard uninvited, you may have an even higher duty of care toward those children. Similarly, if a child is in danger on your property, and an adult is injured while rescuing the child, the attractive nuisance doctrine may also apply to the adult.

Taking Reasonable Precautions When Your Property Has an Attractive Nuisance

It’s important to take reasonable precautions if you believe that you have an attractive nuisance on your property, and you’re interested in reducing your liability. Having a fence is a good starting point for reducing the liability that comes with having an attractive nuisance in your yard. To further reduce your liability, it may be a good idea to have a fence that a child cannot easily jump over, or easily climb.

Adding a lock and self-closing hinges can further reduce your chances of being involved in a personal injury lawsuit. If you have a dog, or other animal that’s capable of harming a child, it may be a good idea not to allow the animal to roam freely, especially if you’re not there to supervise the animal. You may also want to talk with the parents of the children, especially if you have a feature on your property that cannot be moved, such as a land formation.

Swimming Pools: the Ultimate Attractive Nuisance

If you have a pool in your yard, it’s never a bad idea to take reasonable precautions in order to ensure the safety of those around you, especially the children. As we’ve previously mentioned, installing a fence is a great place to start. Not only should a fence around the pool lock, but it should also have self-closing hinges as well.

The fence should not be easily scaled by a child, or easily jumped over either. When your pool is not in use, it’s important that you have a cover on your pool. You may also decide to put away any pool toys.

Finally, since it’s possible for accidents and lawsuits to occur no matter what happens, you’ll want to make sure that your homeowner’s insurance policy has adequate coverage for any accidents that may occur in the pool.

“Can I Still Be Sued Even If I Did Everything Right?”

Yes! A claim may be filed against you even if you’ve done all that you reasonably can do, and taken all the reasonable precautions possible. There is no way to completely eliminate the possibility of being sued. However, you can definitely reduce your chances by taking reasonable precautions.

And, generally speaking, the more reasonable precautions you take, the less likely it is that you’ll be sued when another person sustains injury on your property. Remember, you have a duty to take reasonable precautions in order to prevent injury from occurring. Sometimes, you can take all the necessary precautions and injury still happens.

“What Is Breach of Duty?”

Breach of duty occurs when a person has a legal duty and they breach it. In injury claims, a defendant normally has a duty and breaches it when they fail to take reasonable precautions that prevent a foreseeable injury. Though attorneys can argue back and forth endlessly about whether or not a defendant had a duty in the first place, a good guideline as to whether or not a person has a duty could be as follows: if you knew or reasonably should have known that an injury could occur, you may have a legal obligation to take reasonable precautions in order to prevent the injury from occurring.

For example, if you have an aggressive dog, and know that children like to wander aimlessly through your yard, you may want to start taking some reasonable precautions. Some of these precautions may include putting a fence up, making sure the dog is restrained at all times, supervising the dog while the dog is outside, putting up warning signs, muzzle training the dog, and working with a dog trainer.

“Does Foreseeability Matter?”

We already know that property owners are liable for the injuries that occur on their property when it’s due to the property owner’s negligence. But what about when the injury was totally unforeseen? Is the property owner still liable?

Well, maybe. When it comes to tort law, the more likely it is that the property owner could have anticipated the injury, the more likely it is that they could be liable for the injury.

When Big Injuries Create Big Bills

When Big Injuries Create Big Bills

In Fort Worth, big injuries don’t have to mean big expenses. If you have been injured due to another person’s negligence, a personal injury lawyer in Fort Worth may be able to help you. It isn’t uncommon for people to be unable to pay all of their medical expenses after they’ve been injured.

Additionally, many injured people suffer from loss of income, loss of earning potential, and even emotional distress. Though a lot of people have insurance, the offers from the insurance companies aren’t usually enough to cover every injury-related expense. Unfortunately, insurance companies may deny claims in bad faith or pressure injured parties into accepting a lower offer.
