Car Wrecks and Motor Vehicle Accidents

According to the Texas Dept. of Transportation, the following motor vehicle accident statistics occurred in Texas in 2013:

  • 65,539 serious motor vehicle accidents
  • 89,270 serious injuries
  • 232,041 persons injured
  • 3,377 motor vehicle traffic fatalities

Car, truck and motorcycle accidents often result from speeding, alcohol-impaired drivers, distracted drivers, cellphone use, texting and driving, grooming while looking in the rear view mirror, eating and drinking while driving, fumbling with the radio or CD controls, reaching for an item on the floor or back seat, and a host of other reasons. If your accident was caused by another driver’s negligent or reckless conduct, the attorneys at The Rutherford Law Firm can help you pursue the compensation you deserve.

Slip and Fall Injuries

In an area of law known as premises liability, property owners must safely maintain their premises. If you slipped and fell on a slick, wet, oily, greasy or other slippery surface, or if you tripped and fell as a result of an obstruction or defect such as a broken floorboard, defective stair, bunched-up carpet, poorly lit area or other dangerous condition, you may seek compensation in a personal injury lawsuit.

Medical Malpractice

When a healthcare professional fails to abide by accepted medical protocols resulting in injury or death, you may seek damages in a medical malpractice claim. Medical negligence occurs in many areas, including, but certainly not limited to the following:

  • Emergency room errors
  • Physician error, including misdiagnosis, incorrect treatment or failing to treat
  • Medication and pharmaceutical errors
  • Surgical and anesthetic errors

Wrongful Death

When a death occurs as a result of another’s negligent conduct, the spouse, parent and/or children of the deceased have a right to seek compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit. Damages may include pain and suffering of the deceased prior to death, medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, loss of earning capacity, loss of household services, loss of society and companionship and loss of inheritance.
