Details About Auto Accident

Auto Accident

Auto accidents are some of the scariest and most devastating types of accidents that you can be involved in. While some auto accidents are considered relatively minor and no more than a fender bender, other auto accidents can be significantly more damaging. Injuries associated with auto accidents include:

  • Head injury
  • Brain injury
  • Neck injuries/whiplash
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Bruises and excessive bleeding
  • Internal organ damage
  • Wrongful death

While many people assume that car insurance will take care of the damage to the vehicle and the associated medical bills, nothing could be further from the truth. The harsh realization that auto insurance actually pays very little towards the financial issues caused by an auto accident comes at a shock to many, leaving them frustrated and worried about how they will pay for the astronomical medical bills.

I work with clients just like you and their families every day. My goal is to obtain the full compensation you deserve for your injuries or the injuries of your loved one, so you no longer have to worry about lost wages and outrageously expensive medical care. I do everything within my power to exhaust every source of financial restitution available and I won’t give up, no matter how tough things seem to get.

When you or a loved one have been injured in an auto accident, you need someone who can give you a legal edge. Call me today to schedule a consultation.

Freak Texas Accidents Can Cause A Brain Injury

Brain Injury

Many kinds of accidents that injure individuals are so common that it may seem straightforward to determine who should have liability for a person’s injuries. Some situations are so far outside of a typical person’s experience that they demand special knowledge and skill to explore them and determine what happened, and who should be held responsible. The propeller accident causing a brain injury that happened in late 2011 to a fashion blogger in Texas is just such an occurrence.

While the details of the case were not fully revealed in one recent report, safety around planes and airstrips is not an arena most people know well. As a result, it might be difficult for the average person to know whether proper safety protocols were followed. Additionally, it is likely that only a person with specialized experience would know whether the circumstances surrounding an unusual accident were appropriate.

The person in this unusual accident who was struck by a plane’s rotating propeller suffered many serious injuries, including an extensive brain injury and the loss of one of her hands. Where the injuries are so serious and related treatment is so costly, it is important that the right parties be held responsible in the case. The injured person’s recovery has been described as painstaking a year after the accident itself.

In addition to the knowledge necessary to determine the safety standards in the case, there may be additional issues and requirements within the environment. The airport itself likely has specific responsibilities. Any staff involved in flying the plane or directing the passengers was likely also have very specific responsibilities. There may be many factors in a case where unusual circumstances lead to a brain injury like this one in Texas and it is important for an injured person to be well informed so he or she may look out for his or her own interests.

Texas Estate Planning

Real Estate

Your last will and testament is the most fundamentally important document you can have in place prior to your death. A will allows you to clearly define how you want your property distributed when you pass away. If you die without a will, formally referred to as dying intestate, your property will be distributed to family members according to Texas statute. Wills are also frequently used to name guardians for your children, and for other considerations.

The preparation of a will is an important first step in estate planning and ensuring that your wishes are known so your assets pass to the people of your choosing. I have helped countless clients draft sound, well-considered wills ranging from general distributions to named beneficiaries to very specific distributions of assets.

Making Your Wishes Known

I understand how overwhelming it can be when you first start thinking about preparing a will. I will take the time to learn about your family background, your beneficiaries, the property that will need to be distributed, your goals and your concerns. I will walk you through the entire process and work with you to draft a will that makes your wishes known.

I also represent clients in will contests. I pride myself on drafting wills that limit the possibility of challenges. There is always the possibility, however, that a family member or other party may seek to challenge a will. If you are the executor of the estate and need legal representation, I will present the strongest possible case on your behalf.
