Alcohol-related Accidents

We wish everyone a Happy New Year and look forward to working with you in 2011 to make it a better year than 2010.

Please be careful on the roads.  Setting statistics aside we all know what happens when drinking is mixed with driving.  Be wary of other drivers this holiday season.  Make plans to stay safe throughout the weekend now, if possible.  During the holidays, many bars and pubs tend to over serve and the public tends to over drink.  Dram Shop lawsuits are filed as a result of this behavior and bars are called to task for their negligence. The legal community, however, can not police all of the bad actors.  Don't be afraid to take the safest possible path to 2011.

On the Job Injuries

Our firm has represented numerous individuals hurt on the job.  In Texas your rights come down to whether your employer has purchased workers' compensation insurance.  If you are unsure whether you may have a claim, your best bet is to err on the side of caution and set up an appointment to speak with an attorney.

There may additional claims to consider called "third-party" claims.  These claims, against people other than your employer, are meant to seek out responsible companies or individuals who may have acted negligently and caused an injury.  Often, it takes a trained eye to discover these potential claims.  That's where an attorney can provide some assistance.

Our office provides free appointments so you can learn your rights.  You will not have to bring any money with you and the benefit you receive is, at the very least, peace of mind that you did not miss out on an opportunity to recover.
