How a San Antonio Law Firm Can Help You
Our law practice helps people just like you every day. At its core, the law is meant to protect the rights of citizens, and ensure that individuals and organizations are held accountable for their actions. This is done in a variety of ways, but often, it comes down to advocating for citizens whose rights have been violated. Here are just a few situations in which a legal consultation can help you:
According to the Texas Department Of Transportation, the traffic accident fatalities have declined by 26% in the last two years. Of course, this is a welcome change. However, that still leaves hundreds of people who die in traffic accidents in San Antonio each year. While a lawsuit can never bring back a departed loved one, or magically heal life-altering injuries, it can help you better recover and pay for the help that you need in order to carry on.
Slip and Fall Accidents
If you've ever had a slip and fall, you know they can be painful and scary. Some accidents just leave you with bruises, but others leave individuals with broken bones, sprains, or even traumatic brain injury from the impact of the slip and fall.
Defective Products for Consumers
When you purchase a product as a consumer, you expect it to work properly. Unfortunately, over the past few years more and more companies are releasing products that are either not properly checked and tested for quality and safety, or are simply defective. When this happens, the company can be liable for damages.
Dog Bite Injuries
According to the CDC, every single year over 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs. 1 in 5 of these people require medical attention afterwards. Although most dogs are gentle and harmless, others pose a risk to people around them. A law firm can help victims of dog bites obtain compensation for medical care, and determine whether the dog is an ongoing risk.
While car accidents in Texas have gone down, drunk driving has always been an issue and unfortunately always will be. These types of accidents can cause all sorts of injuries and are a leading cause of fatalities on the roadways. If you were injured because of a drunk driver, you can hire a local law firm to file a claim against the drunk driver for compensation for damages and injuries.
Traumatic Brain Injuries or TBIs
A traumatic brain injury is a medical term that is used to describe the result of a sudden force or impact to the head. Impact due to a car accident, slip and fall, or any other number of accidents can lead to a traumatic brain injury. A TBI can change your entire life at the blink of an eye, necessitating personalized medical care for the rest of your life, in some cases.
On the Job Injuries
When you go to work you expect that you will be safe and be able to return home as you left it. Unfortunately, every single day there are on-the-job injuries that happen to people. These can be minor injuries, but also more serious injuries - including death. If you find that you are having trouble understanding Texas laws, how workers compensation works or if you're receiving unfair treatment because of an accident, you can and should hire a local San Antonio law firm for your case.
