The Resources & Drive to Win, No Matter What.

Big companies think they have the money and power to just “wait it out” and pressure you into settling. But we can play that game too—and when we do, we get results. In the meantime, we make sure our clients aren’t struggling for anything. We help them find the best doctors and specialists so they can physically recover as much as they can. We make sure our clients' needs are taken care of, their questions are answered, and their fears are addressed.

What Our Longview Personal Injury Lawyers Can Do

There are two important aspects of a personal injury claim. First, it holds negligent parties accountable and helps prevent a similar accident from happening to someone else. Second, it helps the injured party recover from the harm they've experienced by seeking financial compensation from the responsible party (or parties). 

While the responsible party, insurance companies, and others might offer a settlement after an accident, it’s important to speak with a Longview personal injury lawyer before accepting. An initial offer might be low to absolve the company of liability for as little as possible. Speak with an experienced lawyer first to determine whether the settlement is fair.

Our personal injury lawyers help people in Gregg County and across Texas who are dealing with:

Longview Catastrophic Injury Attorneys

Our Longview injury law firm excels at catastrophic injury cases. These involve incidents that leave people suffering from life-threatening, life-altering injuries. These injuries rob them of their health, mobility, careers, limbs, and sometimes, their ability to think and speak. This can happen to anyone, but they’re especially common after certain types of accidents.

Catastrophic injuries include the following:

  • Burn injuries
  • Amputation
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spine injuries
  • Crush injuries
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

Catastrophic injuries are often the result of serious negligence of either company owners or higher-ups. Our job is to investigate the circumstances of your accident, uncover who was at fault, and hold them financially responsible for the damages you’ve suffered (which, between hospitalization and lost income, could be an enormous sum).

Longview Truck Accident Lawyers

Each year, over 400,000 accidents involving large trucks occur. Many of these accidents cause serious injuries and, in the worst cases, are deadly. In fact, despite representing only 5% of vehicles on the road, trucks are involved in a tenth of motor vehicle accident fatalities. According to the NHTSA, that amounted to 5,936 deaths in 2022 alone.

Longview 18-wheeler accidents are often caused by the following:

  • Drowsy driving
  • Improperly loaded trucks
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Unqualified drivers

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, truck driver fatigue causes 1 in 7 large truck crashes, but some experts believe this figure is underestimated

How Is a Trucking Company Responsible for an 18-Wheeler Accident?

Trucking companies are responsible, legally and ethically, for the behavior of their drivers. If a driver is overworked, not vetted, or unfit for driving an 18-wheeler, the responsibility falls on the trucking company for their hiring or training practices. Holding trucking companies accountable for hiring unsafe drivers ensures that only good drivers get hired.

Trucking companies can be responsible for accidents caused by drivers:

  • With poor driving records
  • With criminal backgrounds
  • With a history of relevant health issues
  • Who lack adequate training
  • Who break federal trucking rules

Seeking Accountability After a Longview Truck Accident

Sources of truck accidents can be varied. Truck operators, drivers, and other parties can be responsible for them. Our team is ready to investigate your accident and identify what person or company failed to act responsibly and prevent it.

Truck accidents we've represented include:

  • Box truck crashes
  • Flatbed truck accidents
  • Garbage truck accidents
  • Jackknife accidents
  • Underride accidents
  • Tanker truck crashes
  • Tow truck collisions
  • Commercial vehicle accidents

Longview Maritime Lawyers

Maritime work is challenging but rewarding. Although there are inherent dangers associated with physical labor and heavy machinery, working offshore only becomes significantly hazardous when employers fail to implement proper safety standards in the pursuit of production and profits—at the expense of their crews’ well-being.

Seamen and other maritime workers may be at risk of suffering from:

  • Falls overboard
  • Slip and fall accidents on deck
  • Falls from heights
  • Equipment malfunction
  • Fires and explosions
  • Chemical burns
  • Loading and docking accidents
  • Heavy machinery accidents

What Should I Do After a Maritime Injury?

Seek medical treatment as soon as you can, and keep records of all medical care you receive, including medication, supplies, and travel costs to and from appointments. Report the incident to your supervisor or manager. Make your report in writing and keep a copy. Record what happened by taking pictures of the scene and your injuries, if possible. Note down everything you remember about the incident and the time leading up to it. Don’t admit fault, and don’t sign anything until you’ve had your attorney review it. 

Talk to an attorney who has experience with maritime law. With the complexities involved, you need a legal team that knows the ins and outs of every state/federal law that impacts your case.

Compensation for Longview Maritime Workers

Injured seamen may be entitled to maintenance and cure for living expenses and medical care without having to prove fault. They may also be entitled to compensation under the Jones Act if their employers or vessel owners were negligent, or if their injuries were caused by unseaworthy vessels. Families who lose loved ones in maritime accidents may be able to seek justice under the Death on the High Seas Act (DOSHA).

With our knowledge of admiralty and maritime laws affecting workers in U.S. and foreign waters, our Longview maritime injury attorneys know precisely how to help. We know how to help you seek a fair and just case outcome.

About Longview

Longview is the seat of Gregg County and is located in East Texas between Dallas and Shreveport, Louisiana. Its population was estimated at 81,763 by the U.S. Census Bureau as of July 2021, and it sits on 55.69 square miles. Nicknamed the “Balloon Race Capital of Texas” by the 83rd Texas Legislature in 2013, and with the motto “Real East Texas,” Longview is known for hosting the Great Texas Balloon Race every year. Since 1978, the city has hosted competitive and non-competitive balloon flights, along with live entertainment, concessions, and more.

Longview was founded in the early 1870s after a farmer named O.H. Methvin sold 100 acres of land to the Southern Pacific Railroad, persuading a line to be built in the direction of the rest of his land. The name of the town was allegedly coined when Melvin said, “What a long view!” from his home. Longview was incorporated in 1871 and was the first town in Gregg County. The population of Longview grew steadily through the following decades and experienced a boom in the 1930s after the discovery of oil in the area. By 1940, there were 13,758 residents.

Today, Longview is known for its outdoor recreation, restaurants, shopping, and museums. Some of Longview’s most popular attractions include the hiking trails and dog park at Paul Boorman Trail, the Gregg County Historical Museum, Longview World of Wonders, and the Longview Museum of Fine Arts. You can also enjoy award-winning barbeque at Bodacious Mobberly, shop for rare finds at Betty’s Antiques or the Greggton Antique Mall, and sample a flight of beer at the Oil Horse Brewing Company. For a healthy dose of nature, you can visit the Longview Arboretum and Nature Center or play a round at the Pinecrest Country Club and Golf Course.
