Vehicle Accidents

Request Consultation

Vehicle accidents that lead to the death of an individual as a result of the accident may be subject to wrongful death claims if the other driver acted in negligence.

Drunk/Drugged Drivers

Request Consultation

In Texas, a victim of a drunk driving accident may be able to sue the owner of the bar which over-served the driver. The goal of such lawsuits is to hold bar owners accountable for the alcohol they (excessively) sold. If a loved one was killed in a drunk driving accident, you may be able to file a dram shop claim against the bar owner in addition to the impaired driver.

Pedestrian Accidents

Request Consultation

If a driver’s negligence leads to the death of a pedestrian, the surviving family members are entitled to compensation for the harm. Common types of pedestrian accidents include those while crossing the street, walking through parking lots, or moving along the sidewalk or shoulder of the road.

Truck Accidents

Request Consultation

Most deaths in large truck crashes are passenger vehicle occupants. Large trucks often weigh 20-30 times as much as passenger vehicles. They are taller and have greater ground clearance than cars, which means that lower-riding vehicles can slide beneath truck trailers, with deadly consequences. Rear underride guards are supposed to stop this from happening, but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) research shows that guards meeting federal safety standards can fail in relatively low-speed crashes.

Distracted Driving Accidents

Request Consultation

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration defines distracted driving activities to include things like using a cell phone, texting, interacting with passengers and eating. Using in-vehicle technologies (such as navigation systems) can also be sources of distraction. While any of these distractions can endanger the driver and others, texting while driving is especially dangerous because it combines all three types of distraction
Distracted driving is a very dangerous behavior that increases the risk of a crash and crash-related injuries or death.
