Practice Areas Include;
- Wrongful Death Cases:
The pain of losing a loved one is immeasurable. If you’ve lost a family member or loved one due to an accident or as a result of someone’s negligence, we are here to help you through this difficult time. You deserve an attorney who will be sensitive to you and your family and will be compassionate to the way your life has been forever altered.
While no amount of money can compensate for the loss of a family member, we will fight to ensure that you receive the totality of the compensation available to you under Texas law. This includes the loss of earnings the loved one would have provided to your family, funeral and burial expenses, and the loss of contribution to the household.
You will forever have a void in your family, but you will find comfort in taking action against those who are accountable.
- Car Accidents:
Car accidents are on the rise, as are the number of accidents that occur as a result of distracted driving. A car accident is more than an inconvenience, often affecting your physical and mental health, job performance, relationship with family and friends, and overall well being.
We will fight to ensure that your life returns to how it was before the accident, and will seek the maximum damages allowed under Texas law, including: past and future medical expenses, past and future lost wages, disfigurement, compensatory (pain and suffering) damages, and damages that may be unique to your specific case. We also assist in making sure your vehicle is taken care of directly after the accident, at no charge to you.
Whether you were injured as a pedestrian or driver, we have extensive experience in handling cases involving motor vehicles and the resulting injuries. Give us a call for your free consultation.
- 18-Wheeler Accidents:
A wreck involving an 18-wheeler or commercial vehicle is different than a wreck involving another car, and must be treated differently. These cases often involve extensive research into the policy and procedures of the company as well as the driving experience of the driver.
Due to the weight and size of the commercial vehicles involved, these accidents can cause substantial injuries and damages. Amanda Payton is a member of the Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America and has the experience necessary to prosecute your case against the driver and the company who hired the driver.
- Drunk Driving Accidents:
The US Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that almost 1/3 of all traffic accidents involve alcohol-impaired driving, and about 16% of traffic accidents involve drugs other than alcohol. These statistics are staggering and, unfortunately, are on the rise.
There is no excuse for drunk or impaired driving, and those who choose to drive while intoxicated must be held accountable for their actions. If you are injured by a drunk or impaired driver, please call us immediately so that we can begin investigating and ensure that the perpetrator and cause of your injury is brought to justice.
- Work Injuries:
If you’ve been injured during the course and scope of your employment, it is possible that you can bring a case against your employer or a negligent third-party. Being injured at work can have a devastating effect on your financial situation and leave you unsure of what the future holds for your professional and personal life. If we take on your case, we will ensure you are compensated for your injuries and damages.
- Slip and Falls:
If you are injured on a company’s premises, please give us a call so that we can discuss your case with you. These cases are very fact-intensive and often require an extensive investigation. If you slip and fall, or trip and fall, we may be able to help you recover for your injuries and damages.
