Smith & Smith Attorneys at Law - Areas of Practice

 
Auto Accident / Trucking Accident / Car & Motorcycle Accident
Overloaded trucks don’t just hurt the road.  They have an increased likelihood of rollover, or having a tire or brake failure.  We believe that when trucking companies share the road with much smaller vehicles, they have a responsibility to also share the responsibility for keeping our highways safe.
 
Work Injury / Construction Site Accident
On the job injuries may be caused by worn-out tools and faulty equipment or they may be the result of a fall in the workplace.  In Texas, employers are not required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover these injuries. An injured worker’s rights to medical care and compensation vary considerably depending on whether this insurance is available.  Either way, an injured worker faces important choices and may need the help of a well-qualified attorney.
Premises Liability / Slip & Fall Accident
Many people assume that a property owner or business is automatically responsible if someone gets hurt on their property.  Texas law, however, is not so liberal.  Whether the property owner or business is liable depends both on why the injured person was on the property and why the injury occurred. Premises liability cases arise when injuries result from a property owner or business’s failure to meet his/her responsibilities.
Medical Malpractice or Negligence / Nursing Home Neglect or Abuse
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or other medical provider fails to use ordinary care. Just because a bad result occurs doesn’t make a doctor negligent, but it is something that a jury may consider. These cases can be very complex and require the parties to comply with strict procedural rules.  If you or a relative has been seriously injured by a doctor or hospital’s negligence, you need the help of an attorney experienced in medical malpractice cases.  The attorneys at Smith & Smith have the expertise and devotion needed to succeed in these cases.
Product Liability / Dangerous Drugs & Devices
For a person to recover on a products liability claim, the person must prove that his or her injuries were caused by an unreasonably dangerous product. A product can be unreasonably dangerous because of a manufacturing defect, a design defect, or a marketing defect.  Whatever the cause, a corporation should not be allowed to place its profits over the safety of innocent people.
Traumatic Brain Injury / Wrongful Death
These cases require an attorney’s full energy and dedication.  If you have a family member who has suffered a brain injury or wrongful death, we would be honored to speak with you about your options and whether a legal claim should be pursued.
