Austin Attorney Provides Impassioned Personal Injury Representation
Texas lawyer seeks justice for accident victims
Any accident that seriously injures you has the potential to affect you and your family for the rest of your lives. While you have a right to seek compensation, you are unlikely to get the full amount you deserve on your own. At Teresa Christian Law, I’ve spent more than a decade focused on securing damages for accident victims in Austin and the surrounding areas, so I understand the emotional, physical and financial pain you face. I’ve helped clients obtain compensation they’re entitled to for medical bills, lost wages, and in some cases, pain and suffering. Whether you have been injured in a car crash, hurt in a slip and fall accident, or harmed by a defective product, you have only two years from the date of your injury to file a claim, so it’s in your best interests to get the help you need immediately.
Skilled adviser assists people injured in vehicle crashes
If you’ve been hurt in a car or motorcycle accident in Texas, you may be unable to earn a living or enjoy your favorite leisure activities. Under state law, you have the right to seek compensation through your own insurer or the carrier for the at-fault driver. Even if you bear some responsibility for your crash, you can recover damages as long as you are no more than 50 percent at fault. Your award will be reduced by the percentage of fault attributed to you. In settlement negotiations or in court, I will press for a result that addresses your needs now and in the future.
Strong advocate presses for compensation in trucking accidents
Because of their immense size and weight, tractor-trailers and other big rigs have the potential to cause serious, if not fatal, injuries in collisions with passenger cars. So in trucking accident cases, you’re likely to face powerful adversaries with a lot on the line. That means you need an equally potent advocate who can successfully challenge them. I understand the federal regulations governing truck operation, such as those involving driver rest and vehicle maintenance, and will examine whether violations contributed to your crash. In these complex cases, I am able to determine whether the trucking company, the driver, a subcontractor or all of the above are liable for damages.
Experienced slip and fall attorney holds negligent property owners accountable
Those who own or occupy properties have a duty to safely maintain their premises. So if you slip and fall on a grocery store’s wet floor, a restaurant sidewalk’s damaged pavement, or a medical office’s loose stair tread, you may have a right to compensation. In premises liability cases, you must be able to prove that:
- The owner owed you a duty of care.
- The duty of care was breached.
- The breach was the cause of your injury.
Slip and fall accidents can result in broken bones, hip fractures, back and spinal cord injuries, and serious head injuries, leaving you unable to work while facing ongoing medical treatment and expenses. With my help, you can recover financially for the harm you’ve suffered and hold negligent property owners accountable.
Established litigator represents victims of defective products
Texas holds manufacturers of defective products strictly liable for any injury or illness their products cause. Under state law, a product can be defective in its design, manufacture, or marketing, which may involve a failure to adequately warn the consumer of risks. So if you’ve been injured by a faulty airbag or a defective medical device, you have a right to compensation. I represent clients throughout the greater Austin area in products liability actions to secure the damages they deserve.
Caring counselor represents surviving loved ones in wrongful death suits
When you’ve lost a family member due to the negligent or reckless action of someone else, it can be difficult to consider taking legal action. But wrongful death lawsuits allow you to recover a range of economic and noneconomic damages while holding the responsible party accountable. In Texas, the surviving spouse, children, and parents of the deceased may file a wrongful death claim. I offer the sensitivity and skill you need in an attorney at this tragic time and will pursue justice and financial recovery for you and your family.
