When someone else causes or contributes to you getting injured, it’s critical that you take swift action to protect your rights. While your case might seem straightforward, it can quickly turn into a lengthy legal battle that leaves you and your claim in limbo. And if you’re not careful, you could lose out on the compensation you’re entitled to.
Our lawyers have the knowledge and experience to help you with a wide range of cases, including:
If you have been hurt in a car accident due to someone else’s carelessness, you can pursue compensation from the person or people who are responsible. A personal injury attorney can help you get the maximum amount of compensation possible, so you don’t have to pay for the costs caused by someone else’s bad actions.
If a person has been injured or killed in a truck accident, they are entitled to compensation for the damages caused. This may include medical costs, lost wages, physical and emotional pain and suffering, funeral expenses, and more. Additionally, if the truck driver was found to be operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident, punitive damages may also be awarded. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help their client fight for these damages in court and ensure that they receive the maximum amount of compensation possible.
Motorcycle accident injuries may be more severe, often require more extensive medical treatment than other types of motor vehicle accidents. These cases can be particularly difficult to win without the help of an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer. An attorney with knowledge of motorcycle laws and regulations would be able to navigate through the complex legal process and uncover any evidence necessary to prove fault and maximize compensation for their client. Additionally, victims of motorcycle accidents must often battle against insurance companies who will seek to minimize or deny the claim in an effort to reduce the payout they must provide. A lawyer experienced in fighting these types of tactics can ensure that their clients receive a fair settlement for their injuries and losses.
Slip and Fall Accidents/Premises Liability
Restaurants, grocery stores, shopping malls and other property owners have a legal responsibility to make sure their property is safe, but far too many are irresponsible and cause others to suffer serious injury. While slip and fall claims often involve someone getting injured when they fall down on a slippery floor, these types of cases can also be the result of:
- Cluttered aisles and walkways
- Broken stairs/ramps
- Loose handrails
- Poor lighting
- An uneven sidewalk
- Bunched up or tattered carpeting
- Snow-covered or icy sidewalks, steps and parking lots
- Floors with loose or broken pieces of tile or floorboards
- Uneven surfaces
Premises liability cases are often complex. The property owner could challenge your claim and say you were responsible for your accident. That’s why you need a Hays personal injury attorney in your corner to protect your rights and aggressively advocate for your best interests.
If you were attacked or bitten by someone else’s dog the consequences can be devastating. Dogs make great pets but when they decide to attack someone, they can cause a lot of damage on a physical and emotional level. If you or someone you love suffered injuries from a dog bite in an unprovoked attack, you may be entitled to significant compensation. Dog bite cases are often complex, but our attorneys can guide you through the process and help you recover the compensation you’re entitled to.
Commercial property owners have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of everyone who visits their property. Unfortunately, many property owners and managers fail to maintain reasonably safe conditions, which results in others being attacked and suffering significant harm. Negligent security cases typically involve an injury to an individual due to a criminal act, such as assault, robbery, shootings, stabbings, and sexual assault.
Common places where negligent security can occur include:
- Apartment buildings
- Hotels and motels
- Retail stores
- Shopping malls
- Gas stations
- Grocery stores/Supermarkets
- Office buildings
- Parking lots/Parking garages
Maybe you were attacked on property that had insufficient lighting or a lack. It could be that you were robbed at a gas station located in an area known for its high crime rates. Or maybe you were assaulted inside a nightclub without enough security guards.
Common examples of negligent security include:
- Faulty security cameras or no cameras at all
- Installing cameras that don’t work to provide a false sense of security
- Improper lighting
- Lack of or poorly trained security guards
- Failure to restrict building access
- Faulty or broken locks
- Lack of fencing, railings and other barriers to block off property
- Failure to appropriately maintain the property’s lighting, security systems, and locks
If you or someone you love was injured due to a negligent security, our Hays lawyers can help you get the compensation you’re entitled to and hold the irresponsible property owner accountable.
