Alvin Trucking Accidents
In Brazoria County, there were hundreds of motor vehicle-related injuries in 2014, according to a document from the Texas Department of Transportation. When a truck collides with a passenger car, the resulting injuries can be devastating — and are often fatal. Tragically, trucking fatalities have been on the rise since the state’s oil drilling and fracking boom began. Mild, moderate, or severe traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, severe burns, deep scarring, and even paralysis are some of the common injuries that can result from a trucking accident.
If you or a loved one was injured in a commercial trucking accident, the driver or trucking company may be liable for the damages. Call The Krist Law Firm, P.C. to get an Alvin personal injury attorney to maximize payments and recover your damages from medical costs, loss of earning capacity, physical pain, mental anguish, physical limitations, disfigurement, or other losses you’ve suffered because of your accident.
Our Alvin personal injury lawyers are experienced in building strong cases and fighting for the maximum available compensation for our clients. In 2014, we won the largest truck accident recovery published in Texas, and have won multi-million dollar settlements or verdicts on behalf of numerous people injured in commercial truck crashes.
Maritime Accidents in the Houston Metro Area
Injuries that occur offshore or at docks may not be covered under Texas personal injury laws. Instead, if you’re hurt on a commercial vessel, drilling platform, or oil rig, your injuries may fall under a complex set of federal regulations known as maritime laws.
Unfortunately, as the oil drilling and gas industries have grown around the Gulf of Mexico, so have the number of offshore deaths. In 2014, the number of offshore fatalities increased over the previous year, according to data from the National Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Fatalities aren’t the only kind of accidents that happen offshore. You can easily be burned in an oil fire or an explosion, suffer broken bones from a fall, or sustain lung damage from inhaling toxic chemicals. If you or a loved one has been injured in an offshore accident, there might be more than physical pain to deal with. You might be wondering how you and your family will bring in money. You could have hefty medical bills piling up. You might have physical limitations and mental anguish.
Now is the time to reach out to an Alvin maritime lawyer to get the help you need. Through a maritime injury lawsuit, you may be able to obtain compensation to pay your medical costs, recoup lost wages, and recover other losses you suffered because of your accident. The Krist Law Firm, P.C. is well-versed in the complexities of maritime law. We earned one of the largest published maritime recoveries in Texas for a man who sustained head injuries in a mooring cable accident, and have helped numerous other injured maritime workers obtain multi-million dollar settlements or verdicts following a catastrophic injury.
