New Braunfels, TX Personal Injury Attorney
Defending Your Right for Compensation in Comal, Hays, and Guadalupe Counties
Scores of South Central Texans are injured or killed every day, through no fault of their own. Many of these incidents take place on area streets and highways, and negligent third parties must be identified and held legally responsible. Dangerous property conditions, such as unsafe floors and inadequate security, injure many others. Doctors make mistakes too, and a combination of factors, including outright arrogance, in many cases, leads to tragic results for many patients. All these victims are entitled to financial compensation, but there is a big difference between theoretical entitlement and actually receiving the money you deserve.
At The Bettersworth Law Firm, our team works hard to close the gap between the two. Our simple commitment to you is our best effort, and our best attitude, every time we pick up your file. We routinely handle personal injury cases in all area courts, so we know all the procedural rules and expectations, even the ones that are unwritten. Through our attention to detail, we have built a well-earned reputation, and we leverage that reputation in your favor.
Vehicle Crashes in Texas
Most negligence cases in the state of Texas involve car and truck wrecks. Although every case is different, there are some common aspects in many situations, including rear-end collisions, I-35 wrecks, motorcycle wrecks, and hit and run collisions.
Since Interstate 35 is one of the primary shipping routes between the United States and Mexico, there are many large truck crashes on both the interstate and feeder roads. Victims in these cases often sustain serious injuries, so compensation may be substantial. Negligence in these cases includes:
- Aggressive driving,
- Truck driver fatigue,
- Substance use and abuse,
- Jackknife collisions,
- Unsecured loads, and
- Poorly maintained vehicles.
Landowner and Manufacturer Liability
Just like drivers owe a duty of care to other motorists, landowners owe a duty of care to people who visit their property, whether it is for commercial reasons or any other purpose. In a similar vein, consumer products manufacturers must make their goods safe and effective. Common lapses include:
- Nursing home abuse,
- Dog bites,
- Premises liability,
- Defective products,
- Work-related injuries,
- Defective medications, and
- Construction accidents.
The most painful injuries are often the ones inflicted by careless professionals who take advantage of your trust. There is never an excuse for medical negligence incidents like:
- Childbirth injuries,
- Brain injuries,
- Lack of consent,
- Surgical mistakes,
- Medication errors,
- Incorrect lab reports, and
- Defective medical devices.
In addition to the negligent doctor or other professional, the hospital or clinic is often liable for damages, under the theory of respondeat superior, or "let the master answer."
A momentary lapse often leads to significant emotional, physical, and financial pain.
