Katy Car Accident Lawyers
If you have suffered personal injuries as a result of a car crash, we can help you pursue a claim against those who were responsible. An accident could be caused by the negligence of other drivers, hazardous road conditions, or even a vehicle malfunction. In the case of an accident involving multiple vehicles, several parties could be at fault.
Our experienced Katy car accident lawyers can identify the causes of the accident and help you seek compensation from the responsible parties and their insurance companies.
Katy Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Motorcycle accidents can result in life-changing injuries for riders. Motorcyclists have relatively little protection in the event of an accident. When a car or truck strikes a motorcycle, the motorcyclist is often thrown from the bike. Such an accident can result in head injuries, back injuries, fractures, road rash, or, all too often, wrongful death.
Motorcycle crashes are often the result of car or truck drivers failing to yield the right of way to the motorcycle. Accidents can occur when another driver:
- Swerves into a motorcycle on a highway
- Pulls out in front of a motorcycle at an intersection
- Makes a left turn into the path of a motorcycle that has the right of way
- Follows a motorcycle too closely
- Brakes suddenly and without warning in front of a motorcycle
- Is distracted, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, is fatigued or otherwise unable to operate their vehicle responsibly
Injured motorcyclists deserve full and fair compensation for their injuries and other losses. Our experienced motorcycle accident attorneys can investigate the accident and establish who was at fault and uncover all potential sources of recovery.
Katy Truck Accident Lawsuit
Truck accidents are often much more serious and complicated than most car accidents. The size and weight of the truck itself can be responsible for increasing the severity of injuries in a crash with a smaller vehicle.
Also, in a truck accident, multiple parties could be held liable for the crash. The driver may have been distracted, drowsy, speeding, or otherwise negligent. The driver’s employer may be responsible for creating hazardous working conditions, if the trucker was pressured to ignore safety regulations to meet deadlines. Other parties still may be responsible for poor vehicle maintenance or improperly loaded cargo.
In these complicated cases, you need an experienced attorney to help sort out the various factors involved in the accident, especially when truck companies or their insurance companies push back and try to deny liability.
Katy Bicycle Accident Attorney
Unlike passengers in motor vehicles, cyclists have little or no protection around them in the case of a collision. Cyclists can suffer severe injuries in a crash, including road rash, dislocated joints, broken bones, concussions or brain injuries, neck and back injuries, internal injuries, or worse. These injuries can take months or even years to heal and can sometimes affect the cyclist for the rest of their lives.
Most bicycle accidents are the result of motorist negligence. Some drivers fail to safely share the roads with cyclists, violating traffic laws that are designed to keep cyclists safe. Accidents can result from drivers who are distracted, speeding, passing cyclists too closely, or making unsafe turns or lane changes into the cyclist’s path. Hazardous conditions or obstacles in the bike lane are additional factors that can contribute to the accident.
Our experienced bicycle accident lawyers can investigate the crash and establish how it happened and who was at fault. We can help victims negotiate with the other parties and their insurance companies to seek compensation to pay for medical bills, damages to the bike and other property, lost income, and other damages, such as pain and suffering and loss of quality of life.
Katy Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
Our pedestrian accident lawyers can investigate a pedestrian accident to determine how the accident occurred and identify the party or parties who may be responsible, as well as all possible sources of compensation. We can handle negotiations with the responsible drivers and their insurance companies to seek a fair settlement. When a settlement is not possible, our Katy pedestrian accident lawyers can pursue the claim in court.
Even if you are the victim of a hit-and-run accident, and law enforcement agencies are unable to identify the driver, you may still claim compensation for medical expenses not covered by medical insurance as well as lost wages and other damages. If you have an auto policy with uninsured motorist (UM) coverage, file an accident claim with your insurer. Depending on where the accident happened, you may be able to file workers’ compensation to cover your damages.
Our experienced pedestrian accident lawyers can help you sort through the complicated process of establishing and filing your claim.
Katy Slip and Fall Law Firm
A number of hazardous conditions in Katy can cause you to slip and fall. Some of the most common include:
- Uneven or slick flooring
- Spills that were not cleaned up promptly
- Wet or icy walkways
- Poorly maintained or broken escalators, stairways, or elevators
- Cluttered aisles or walkways
After a slip and fall injury, you can protect your rights by documenting the scene of the accident, including the weather, defects, and any other conditions that contributed to your fall. Get the names and contact information of any witnesses and, if they agree, make a video or audio recording of them explaining what they saw. Additionally, protect your right to sue by seeking legal advice and filing a claim quickly, before the statute of limitations expires.
Our experienced slip and fall attorneys are prepared to advocate on your behalf. Let our experienced team fight for the compensation that you deserve. We will gather the appropriate documentation and make sure your claim is filed correctly and on time. We can then negotiate for a full and fair settlement with those responsible for your injury.
Katy Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Medical malpractice can result from the negligence of health care providers. It occurs when a medical professional fails to administer health care in accordance with the professional standard of care. Unfortunately, these types of cases are all too common in the United States. Examples include surgical errors, childbirth injuries, misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, anesthesia errors, and medication mistakes.
When medical errors occur, it falls to the plaintiff to prove that the injury was caused by a medical professional’s failure to satisfy the standard or care. In these types of cases, an experienced medical malpractice attorney is very valuable. An attorney can obtain and review medical records, interview experts, and otherwise investigate the evidence to support your claim. Our experienced Katy med mal attorneys can file your claim and negotiate for a settlement with the hospital or other parties responsible for your injury.
Katy Wrongful Death Attorneys
Wrongful death claims are brought against defendants who have caused someone else’s death, either intentionally or through negligence. A wrongful death claim can be filed by a surviving family member or the estate of a deceased person.
In wrongful death claims, compensation can be awarded for numerous damages, including:
- Pain and suffering experienced by the victim before their death
- Medical costs
- Funeral and burial costs
- Lost income
- Loss of companionship
- Los of care and guidance to the family
About Katy, Texas
Located just west of Houston, the town of Katy, Texas, is part of the Houston-The Woodlands-Sugarland metropolitan area. Katy is located in Harris County, but “Greater Katy” also encompasses parts of nearby Waller and Fort Bend counties.
The town motto is “Small town charm with big city convenience.” Katy itself has a population of nearly 20,000 residents, but because of its location as part of metropolitan Houston, it is more of a suburb than a small town.
Katy started out as a sparsely inhabited area known as Cane Island. The town was incorporated in 1895, named after the local railroad MKT Railroad Company, which ran through the town and contributed to its growth and prosperity. But over the years, as Houston grew, Katy became subsumed into the greater metropolitan area. Now Katy is home to numerous corporations, such as Igloo, BP America, and Academy Sport, as well as branches of Houston Community College and the University of Houston.
