Truck AccidentsTruck Accidents

 Enormous, very powerful vehicles, such as 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, big rigs, and other large commercial vehicles deserve and demand respect and extra caution out there on the roads. These vehicles require exceptional drivers and extensive training to insure the safety of themselves and those around them. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. And these big truck accidents can be devastating.

One of the biggest benefits of having an experienced personal injury lawyer representing you is that those insurance adjusters now have to deal with someone fighting on your side who is experienced and who is invested in the success of your case (this is because we operate on what is called a contingency fee).

If you have been in an accident involving these kinds of circumstances and you have suffered any major injuries, you need to seek out an experienced accident and injury attorney who will walk you step by step through the process while handling all of the dirty work for you.

Alcohol and AccidentsAlcohol and Accidents

When someone is hurt or killed in an alcohol-related incident, sometimes responsibility can potentially be placed on the alcohol provider. However, it’s typically unknown as to who holds what type of legal liability and furthermore, how to hold those who are responsible accountable. The area of legal practice involving the liability of alcohol sale is known as Liquor Liability and Dram Shop Law. Additionally, the areas of legal practice regarding liability for providing alcohol in a social setting is known as Social Host Law.

Because these laws are so unfamiliar to the average person, it may be beneficial to start with the basics. Dram shop laws, in most states, permits victims of drunk driving accidents (or even their families) to hold bars and alcohol providers accountable for the death or injury caused by an intoxicated customer. Similarly, social host liability laws hold the hosts of social functions responsible for the death or injuries of individuals caused by their negligence in serving alcohol and/or failing to prevent impaired attendees from driving. Essentially, if an establishment or individual sells alcohol irresponsibly and over-serves a person who they know is already dangerously drunk, or “obviously intoxicated” they can be held liable for any actions of that person including injuries or death to themselves or others.

Did you know?

  • An estimated 88,000 people (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women) die from alcohol-related causes annually, making alcohol the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States. The first is tobacco, and the second is poor diet and physical inactivity.9
  • In 2014, alcohol-impaired driving fatalities accounted for 9,967 deaths (31 percent of overall driving fatalities).

Products' LiabilityProducts' Liability

Every year, thousands of injuries are caused by defective or dangerous products. Products liability law, as opposed to ordinary injury law, is a set of legal rules concerned with who is responsible for defective or dangerous products, and sometimes these rules make it easier for an injured person to receive compensation for the damages they incurred.

Products liability law refers to holding manufacturers or sellers of defective products liable for placing those dangerous products in the hands of consumers. This means that responsibility could lie with all sellers of the product within the distribution chain. Generally, the law requires there are certain requirements that products must meet in order to go out to the public. So, when a product has an unexpected defect, it cannot be said that it meets ordinary expectations.

If you have been in an accident and you think a defective product was the cause, contact us today at (940) 569-4000.

Slip and Fall and Premise LiabilitySlip and Fall and Premise Liability

Estate PlanningEstate Planning

Estate planning is extremely critical not only to protect yourself and your assets, the things you’ve worked your whole life for, but also for your family’s benefit. Unfortunately, most people don’t see this as such a priority. In fact, only about 4 out of 10 Americans have a Will or Living Trust in place. The reason? People simply say they just, “haven’t got around to it” while others claim they, “don’t have enough assets to leave anyone.”

Planning for our death or incapacitation is not on the top of our to-do lists. We tend to live our lives with the hope that we will not die anytime soon. However, we know that death is inevitable and we just don’t know what each day will bring. Therefore, we also know how important this inevitability is to plan for. Of course, good estate planning will give you the peace of mind you need knowing that yourself and your loved ones will be properly provided for. Whether you have a large or small estate, you need to be sure that your wishes are followed upon your death or incapacitation.

There are a lot of misconceptions about estate planning and because of these misconceptions, a lot of people don’t realize the tremendous benefits that come about because of it. Having a plan in place can lift an enormous burden off of you and your loved ones.

Estate planning can be broken down like this. It is the accumulation of assets, or earnings, the preservation of those assets, management of those assets upon disability or incapacitation, and the distribution of those assets when you die. It is pretty straight forward, however, there are some challenges that must be taken into consideration and those challenges are probate, death taxes, and guardianship.  

ProbateProbate

Whether expected or completely out of the blue, the death of a loved one can be a very traumatic experience for the entire family. Many people have difficulty learning how to move on with life without that beloved family member, much less deal with the confusing and time-consuming legal issues that arise upon the death of an individual.

Probate is the legal process by which the probate court assumes authority over the estate or assets of someone who has died. The court identifies assets, identifies who is in charge of the assets, supervises payments of debts to creditors, pays taxes and probate fees, and oversees the distribution of the remainder of the assets to the beneficiaries and or heirs.
