Our firm handles a wide range of personal injury cases; and, while each claim is unique, there are some common features that these accidents share. They are all based upon the careless acts of another person and/or entity. If you or another were injured due to the carelessness or wrongful acts of a third party, you should speak with a Houston injury lawyer about your legal rights and the best options to recover the compensation you need to move forward and recover.
The Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code, Section 71.001 states that an action for wrongful death may be brought if the “wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default” of one party causes the death of another. Under Texas law, a wrongful death claim can only be filed the surviving spouse, children, and parents of the deceased. While there will never be any monetary sum that can truly compensate you for the loss of having your loved walking through life with you, holding the responsible parties accountable can prevent others from suffering the same fate and ensure your family is provided for in the absence of your loved one.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
If you were injured in a car accident due to someone else’s negligence, in Texas, you have only two years to file a personal injury lawsuit, typically measured from the day of the crash. This is why it is important to talk with an attorney as soon as possible. Two years might seem like a long time to you, but it takes months to investigate the crash, the causes, and to understand the full extent of your injuries. The trial-tested, experienced injury lawyers of Minces Rankin handle a variety of motor vehicle accident cases, including pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, dram shop accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, Uber or Lyft ridesharing accidents, rollover accidents, and more.
There are so many scenarios in which workers can be injured. Thousands of workers in Texas are hurt on the job every year. Workplace injuries can be devastating, and often have serious and extensive consequences for not only the injured person but their entire family. Regardless of industry, all Texas workers deserve a safe work environment free of danger. When companies choose to cut corners with regard to workplace safety, they are placing profits over the wellbeing of their workforce. If you or a loved one was seriously injured or killed in a workplace accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation – and not just via the Texas Workers’ Compensation system.
