Dedicated Personal Injury Attorneys Assisting Fort Worth Residents
After an accident, you may suffer both tangible and intangible forms of harm. Catastrophic injuries like spinal cord damage or a traumatic brain injury may necessitate lifelong care or alterations to your home. Whether you were hurt by a careless driver, a defective product, a negligent doctor, or another cause, you may be able to bring a lawsuit. At Moll Law Group, our personal injury lawyers can guide Fort Worth residents through the legal process, vigorously asserting their rights.
You may recover compensation for your harm if you can prove that the product that injured you has defects that fall into one of three categories. The first of these is design defects, which are flaws in a product that endanger consumers even when the product is made according to its specifications. The second is marketing defects, which are flaws in the information given to consumers about a product. The third is manufacturing defects, which are flaws in the process of how a product was made.
If a health care professional hurts you during the course of treatment, you may have grounds to file for medical malpractice. You will need to show that the health care professional violated their duty of care and that this violation caused your injuries. The standard of care depends on numerous factors, including your specific medical condition, age, and medical history.
Nursing Home Abuse
If your family member is in a nursing home, you should be vigilant about signs of abuse or neglect. These signs may include bed sores, unexplained fractures, depression or mood changes, bruising, social withdrawal, and incontinence. By law, skilled nursing home facilities in Texas need to provide their residents with appropriate care and medical treatment. If a nursing home violates the applicable standard of care, they may not only be cited but also may be subject to a civil lawsuit for compensation.
Texas landowners have a duty to keep their property under their control and in a safe condition for lawful visitors. If a landowner fails to abide by this duty, and you are injured as a result, you may be able to bring a premises liability lawsuit. You will need to show that the violation of the duty owed to you proximately caused your harm. The exact nature of the duty that you were owed will depend on the reason for your presence on the property. The greatest duty is owed to a visitor who is an "invitee" —someone invited onto the land for reasons that were mutually advantageous to the owner and the visitor.
If you are injured in a car accident, you may be able to recover compensation from an at-fault driver. In most cases, you will need to prove that more likely than not, the defendant's failure to drive safely was the cause of your injuries. Types of compensation that may be available if you successfully establish negligence include medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
If you develop an illness due to exposure to a toxic substance, such as asbestos, benzene, or a combination of chemicals, you may have grounds to bring a toxic tort lawsuit. These lawsuits tend to be complicated because you need to establish that exposure to the toxic substance was the cause of your illness, and sometimes many years pass before symptoms appear. In Texas, you may pursue a mass tort action if you can show during discovery that you have reliable causation evidence to support your claim.
