What Having a Port Lavaca Accident Attorney Does
Injury lawyers offer accident victims an advocate to fight for their needs at every stage. Without an attorney, people will be on their own while dealing with insurers and employers that subject them to enormous pressure to settle. Instead of resting and recovering, accident victims will have to spend hours on the phone with adjusters, investigators, and health insurers fighting for the care they need. Insurance companies have been known to use tactics to delay claims or make life difficult for claimants, which adds additional stress to their lives.
Having an attorney puts 100% of that stress and work on your lawyer’s plate. An attorney makes sure you can’t be pushed around or bullied by companies or insurers who want you to give up your claim. Lawyers can deal with your insurers and their delay tactics, knowing that if the insurer doesn’t deal fairly, they’ll end up in court. Lawyers can make sure you’re getting the care you need from a doctor you trust. Lawyers can even level the playing field between you and an employer or company, ensuring you are protected from illegal retaliation during the process.
The Leading Maritime Attorneys in Port Lavaca
While we’ve won massive victories in nearly every area of personal injury, our firm is especially famous for our work in maritime law. Our offshore injury attorneys have fought (and won) for the crew of the Deepwater Horizon, the widows of the El Faro, and the families of numerous barge explosion victims. We’ve taken on the largest employers and companies in the maritime industry, and we’ve helped our clients come out on top countless times.
Our most recent maritime accident cases have involved workers who were injured in barge explosions or dredge accidents. In these cases, the cause of the disaster was always traced back to a decision by a higher-up to “save money” by making workers less safe. When it comes to barge and dredge accidents, it’s our duty to hold companies accountable to recover what our clients need while ensuring these accidents never happen again.
Personal Injury FAQ
How Much Time Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim?
In Texas, the time limit to file an injury claim is two years from the date of injury. That two-year window, legally speaking, is not very long. If you’re injured and considering filing a lawsuit, speak with our firm to get all your questions answered in a free consultation. Call (888) 493-1629 or use our short online form.
What If No One Is At Fault for My Injury?
In our experience, there’s no way to know who was at fault until there’s a full investigation of your accident. Our cases involved numerous accidents that were caused by hidden factors that only came to light as a result of our investigation. For instance, in a barge explosion case, we discovered that the company’s barges contained a defect that allowed flammable vapors to gather in the hold. Additionally, we uncovered that the company knew about it.
Other accident factors that might not be clear without closer inspection include:
- Tire defects that caused an accident
- Distracted drivers or drunk drivers
- Safety policies that were changed without notification
- Poor preparation on the part of an employer or company
Why Hire a Lawyer Who Tries Cases?
Trial lawyers are rarer and rarer these days. Without the threat of trial behind a claim, defendants know they can underpay claims or ignore attorneys. Trial lawyers are a different story. With our trial experience, companies know they ignore us or underpay our clients at their own peril. The fear of trial is what helps our firm secure record-setting settlements for our clients.
