Pearland Trucking Accidents
In 2014, motor vehicle accidents resulted in hundreds of injuries in Brazoria County, according to documents from the Texas Department of Transportation. Accidents involving large commercial trucks can be some of the most dangerous due to the size and weight of the vehicles involved. You could sustain serious injuries like severed limbs, paralysis, or mild, moderate, or severe traumatic brain injuries. Someone you care about may have been fatally injured.
You need someone strong by your side, and a Houston personal injury lawyer from The Krist Law Firm, P.C. will work diligently to see that you get the maximum available compensation for your injuries and other losses. We have significant experience representing people injured in catastrophic accidents involving commercial trucks and obtaining multi-million dollar settlements and verdicts, including the largest published truck accident recovery in Texas in 2014.
Maritime Accidents in the Houston Metro Area
If you’re injured offshore or in one of Houston’s ports or harbors, your accident may not be covered under Texas personal injury laws. Instead, adverse events that occur on a commercial vessel, drilling platform, or oil rig may fall under federal maritime laws.
Offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico has become a staple of the Texas economy, but it also comes with a myriad of hazards for laborers. Common maritime injuries may include burns from blowouts, broken bones or severe fractures from falls, lung damage from the inhalation of chemicals, or even death.
Sadly, fatalities in the oil and gas extraction industries are at an all-time high since the National Bureau of Labor Statistics started tracking the data. In 2014, fatalities increased from the previous year according to the annual Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries.
If you or a loved one has been hurt offshore, you may be dealing with medical costs, loss of earning capacity, physical pain, mental anguish, physical limitations, disfigurement, and more. Hire a Pearland maritime attorney who can handle the complicated legal system while you focus on your recovery.
The Krist Law Firm, P.C. has a dedicated team of Houston maritime lawyers with experience in an abundance of offshore injury cases. We’ve successfully achieved one of the largest published maritime recoveries in Texas for a single plaintiff.
