Cases We Handle
Our lawyers handle cases from many different practice areas including:
From car accidents involving drunk drivers to those caused by texting while driving, we help you seek the compensation to which you are entitled. Personal injuries from bicycle accidents are also an increasing problem in Houston.
Accidents involving large commercial and 18 wheeler semi trucks or buses almost always involve serious injuries and damages. Causes of truck and bus accidents often involve improper maintenance, driver inattention and intoxication. A complete, competent investigation is always necessary immediately after the collision to properly protect the victim’s right to damage compensation.
The loss of a loved one is all the more tragic when the accident could have been prevented. We help families hold negligent parties accountable for the loss of a loved one and make sure that surviving children are taken care of in the best possible manner. This is known as a wrongful death claim and you can seek compensation for your loved one and your own pain and mental anguish.
If you were injured by a third party, you may be entitled to compensation above and beyond workers’ compensation coverage. We represent injured oil field workers, construction workers and other individuals who have been injured on the job by someone other than their employer or a co-worker. Furthermore, injured workers whose employers do not carry workers’ compensation insurance might be entitled to bring a non-subscriber cause of action against the employer to recover compensation for their serious injuries.
Motorcyclists have the same rights as everybody else to be on the road but are owed extra consideration by other drivers. The injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident are usually devastating and require the expertise of a personal injury specialist. Contact a board certified specialist for your motorcycle accident injury case today.
When you are injured on another person’s property, you may be able to hold that person responsible for the costs of your injuries. This is known as a premises liability claim. These commonly include slip-and-fall accidents, injuries caused by inadequate lighting, dog bites and swimming pool accidents.
If you have been hurt offshore whether on a rig, boat, barge or ship, you are entitled to the utmost care by your employer. Federal law allows you to not only be taken care of medically and financially during your recover but mandates that you be fully compensated for your injuries. Call Michael P. Fleming personally to discuss you options.
