Construction Fall Accidents

Along with accidents involving operators of heavy machinery or power tools, falls from a height are among the most common causes of injuries and deaths at construction sites. It’s not hard to see why. If your job takes you up high on a ladder, scaffolding or a roof, you’re at risk for a fall. Construction jobs that are especially dangerous for this reason include high-rise construction, roofing, electrical power line installation and repair and structural iron and steel work.

Economic vs Non-Economic Damages in a Personal Injury Case

You can also get money for physical disfigurement you’ve suffered, like scars and burns, and for physical impairment, such as the loss of your ability to perform certain activities.

How Truck Accidents are Different than Car Accidents | Houston Accident Lawyer

A crash between a car and a large truck isn’t like a crash with another car. A truck can weigh more than 20 times what a sedan weighs, and in an accident, all that extra weight turns into extra force. The truck can do far more damage to a car than another car could, which means the car sustains far more damage, and the people inside can be very seriously injured.

Premises Liability

How quickly must a property owner clear a hazard? I believe it’s within a reasonable period of time, which is often what I hear, and reasonable periods of time are ultimately not necessarily set in stone. So what a reasonable person would do has to sometimes be decided by a jury.

Premises Liability | Slip & Fall

Premises liability, at its core, means that if you were injured on someone else’s property as a result of their negligence, you may have a legal right to claim payments. Under Texas law, and in many other states, property owners (both public and private) must ensure the safety of those on their property and take reasonable precautions to protect them from injury or harm. And if they don’t, and someone is injured on business property or suffers personal injury on private property, the owner can be sued for damages.
