Helping Those Injured in Nursing Homes or Assisted Living Facilities
When we leave our parents or other elderly relatives at nursing homes or other assisted living facilities, we place our trust and belief in the employees of those facilities to properly care for our family members. Unfortunately, we sometimes find that our trust has been misplaced due to abuse or neglect. There are legal remedies available, however, that would allow you to recover for the poor treatment of your loved one.
At our law firm, our Texas nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys have over a decade of experience providing dedicated, compassionate representation to clients throughout the state. Contact us online to learn more about how we may be able to help you.

Special Considerations for Accidents Involving Children Due to Negligence
Personal injury accident claims involving children are handled differently than when an adult is injured. The biggest difference is that certain laws do not apply to children. For instance, contributory negligence laws state that children under the age of seven do not have the ability to meet the standard of contributory negligence, while children between the ages of seven and 14 can potentially be held liable for their actions that contributed to the accident.
We understand which laws apply to which situations and will work to fully prepare a case to support your child’s claims based on those laws.
Skillfully Preparing Your Child’s Claim for Settlement and Trial
Our attorneys prepare every case for trial. This focused preparation allows us to be ready for any potential resolution of your child’s personal injury claim, ranging from negotiations and settlement to trial. We will compile all medical records, speak to any witnesses, and use experts such as pediatric physicians to obtain an opinion on how or if this injury will affect your child in the future. We will then bring this information to your insurance company to seek maximum compensation for your child.
Often, insurance companies will seek settlement of accident claims involving children. However, settlement of these cases always requires approval of a judge. Before signing a release of the settlement, a judge must conduct a pro AMI hearing where the court inquires into the facts of the case, the extent of the injuries, and the proposed settlement. The judge will then only approve the settlement if he or she believes it is in the best interests of your child.

Dog attacks are vicious and can cause serious or even fatal injuries. Often, these attacks cause terror in their victim, resulting in emotional and physical scarring.
Dog attacks can be particularly scary for children and the cosmetic damage caused can be particularly damaging to their self-esteem. All dog owners have a duty to protect the public from their animals, even if the animal is not considered vicious.

Dog Bites in Texas
In Texas, you must prove specific enumerated facts to recover for a dog bite. When a defendant owns a dog that is classified as a “dangerous breed,” it is easier to recover damages. However, if the dog that attacked you is not defined as a “dangerous breed,” you must prove evidence establishing that the owner knew or should have known of their dog’s dangerous propensity.
Our attorneys know the requirements necessary to prove liability for dog attacks and have helped many clients recover for the injuries they sustained. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries from a dog bite, we encourage you to contact our law office for assistance.

When people are injured as a result of slip and fall accidents, dog attacks, electrocution, falling objects or other dangerous property condition, they have a right to recover for their injuries if a property owner has been negligent.
