When a person loses a loved one, and that death may have been prevented, a wrongful death lawsuit may be an option. Whether by negligence, reckless behavior, malpractice or simple inaction, if any of these conditions results in a death, the deceased person’s heirs may have grounds for a wrongful death claim. Beneficiaries, including children, parents, and spouses may be able to recover compensation for the love, care, and support that would have been provided by the person who was killed, as well as the mental anguish and emotional losses caused by the loss of the loved one.
Trucking accidents can cause serious injuries, usually to the occupants of a much smaller passenger vehicle. When you are injured in an accident with a big rig, it is crucial that you contact an injury attorney right away to discuss your legal rights to compensation. Commercial trucking companies and their insurance companies are notorious for offering very little to truck accident victims. Thousands of people are injured in trucking accidents every year, only to be offered far less than they deserve for their injuries.

Texas premises liability law states that if a person is injured by an unsafe condition on another person’s premises, the owner of the premises may be held responsible for the injuries. The same can be said for a party who is responsible for maintaining the property. If a property owner or the party responsible for maintaining that property failed to provide a safe environment, that owner or property manager may be held accountable (liable) for your injuries and your expenses related to the injury.
