Motor Vehicle Accidents
Every year, car and truck accidents on Texas’ roads and highways cause thousands of injuries and deaths. Although drivers are required to exercise reasonable care behind the wheel, most accidents stem from drivers’ failure to abide by traffic laws and overall poor judgment. Negligent and/or reckless driving includes, but is not limited to speeding; disobeying traffic signs or signals; failing to be mindful of motorcycles, bicyclists, and pedestrians; disregarding weather or traffic conditions; and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
If your accident was caused by another driver’s negligence, recklessness, or traffic violation, we can help you receive compensation for your losses. You may be entitled to lost wages, disability, compensation for medical bills, and pain and suffering.
Commercial Trucking Accidents
Kafor Law Firm, PLLC, represents people in personal injury cases caused by commercial vehicles, including collisions with 18-wheelers and other trucking accidents. We have significant experience advocating on behalf of clients involved in accidents with semi-trucks, which often result in serious injuries and property damage due to the trucks’ weight and size.
Time is of the essence if you or a loved one has been involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler. In order to determine whether the truck driver or trucking company violated Texas law or any of the safety rules outlined in the Federal Motor Carrier Regulations, it is imperative to carefully examine the company’s records as soon as possible after the accident. Such information may help to prove negligence; however, trucking companies are only required to maintain many records for six months. We possess the requisite knowledge of commercial vehicle regulations and procedures to gather the necessary information to substantiate your case.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Property owners have a duty to make their property safe by repairing known dangers or warning others of such dangers. If a property owner breaches this duty, he or she may be considered negligent and may be held liable for foreseeable injuries caused by such negligence. For example, if you slipped and fell because a property owner failed to clean up a spill or put up a warning sign, the property owner may be liable for your injuries.
Dog attacks can be among the most frightening and gruesome personal injuries, especially when a child is the victim, which is often the case. Texas has a strict liability dog bite statute that holds owners of dangerous dogs liable for up to $10,000 worth of damages if a dog makes an unprovoked attack and causes bodily injury. If you or a loved one has suffered a bite from a pit bull or any breed of dog, we can help you receive compensation for your injuries.
