We are relentlessly committed to fighting for our injured clients. Tilton & Tilton LLP handles personal injury claims and litigation on a contingency fee basis; we do so because this is usually the best option financially for our clients. In other words, we guarantee there is no attorney fee unless you recover money for your case. Until then, or if the case is lost, you pay absolutely nothing.
The following are some of the types of personal injury cases that our Houston personal injury attorneys have experience with:
Car accidents involving semi trucks and other large commercial vehicles are some of the worst accidents possible on the road. Those individuals involved usually suffer severe injuries and often, wrongful death. If you have been injured or have lost a loved one due to an accident caused by an 18-wheeler, then know that you have rights, options and people who can fight on your behalf. You may be entitled to compensation for damages.
The Jones Act was drafted in an attempt to protect maritime workers from the inherent dangers that they face on the job regularly. In short, it highlights what legal responsibilities a maritime business has to its employees regarding their safety and wellbeing. The Jones Act also ensures that workers injured on the job due to negligent business owners and/or practices receive compensation for their injuries. The Houston personal injury attorneys at our law firm have extensive experience representing maritime workers facing Jones Act violations at their workplace.
Depending on the circumstances, workers injured on offshore oil rigs and vessels are typically entitled to compensation if their injury was sustained due to negligence. Offshore rigs and other maritime vessels are subject to different laws as they may be located in international waters where state laws regarding workers’ comp and personal injury cases do not necessarily apply. Due to this fact, maritime laws protect these injured workers no matter where they are. However, these laws are complex and do not apply in all circumstances, so you should always consult with a qualified maritime accident lawyer.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident due to another driver or roadside worker’s negligence, then you may be entitled to compensation. Being injured in a car accident is stressful. You are likely losing wages, trying to find child care assistance and otherwise depending heavily on loved ones all while trying to recover from a car accident. Know that an attorney can fight on your behalf, allowing you a moment to focus on what is important: your recovery.
When you get on an airplane, you are entering a social contract of sorts with the pilot of that aircraft. This contract is an understanding between you and the pilot that he or she will do everything per Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved techniques and standards to ensure your safety and get you to your destination without bodily harm. When you are injured or a loved one is killed in an aviation accident due to the negligence of an aircraft pilot, that contract has been violated and you are likely entitled to compensation for past, current and future damages.
- Motorcycle accidents
Motorcycle accidents have the potential to cause severe, disabling or even fatal injuries to the rider. Many of these types of crashes are the result of the negligence of other motorists on the road; a driver may fail to check for oncoming motorcyclists or may crowd a rider out of his or her lane. If you sustain injuries in a motorcycle crash, then contact our attorneys today for help in filing a claim.
Acts of negligence not otherwise covered under other specific incidents can also be defended in a court of law. Examples can include but are not limited to: dog bites, slips and falls (or other premises liability claims), defunct or otherwise defective products that result in products liability claims, medical malpractice and other instances.
These types of accidents occur in industrial workplaces such as factories and power plants. Depending on the work, the injuries that industrial workers can potentially sustain range from minor to detrimental. Regardless of the type of injury, if you have been injured in an industrial accident due to a business owner’s negligence, then you may be entitled to collect workers’ comp and/or other damages meant to cover medical bills as well as pain and suffering. Industrial accident cases are often complex and involve several parties — it is best to have an experienced personal injury lawyer by your side to uphold and fight for your rights.
In the state of Texas, employers are not legally required to carry a workers’ comp policy. Naturally, the question of whose responsibility it is when a worker gets injured often comes up. Know that the employer can still be held responsible, but it will be near impossible to file a successful claim without an attorney skilled in the field of employment law at your side. The Houston personal injury attorneys at Tilton & Tilton have years of experience in non-subscriber work injury cases and work tirelessly to ensure victims are awarded what they deserve.
- Wrongful death
If you lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, then you may be able to file a wrongful death claim. This type of claim allows you to hold the liable party accountable in civil court for not only your loved one’s losses but also your own, in some cases.
- Pharmaceutical and medical device litigation
The manufacturers of new medications and medical devices are responsible for performing comprehensive testing to ensure that these products are safe for people to use. However, pharmaceutical and medical device companies sometimes fail to properly test their products or ignore negative results. This places patients at risk for serious, sometimes fatal injuries. If you or a loved one sustained injuries as a result of a defective drug or medical device, then you may have grounds for a claim against the company.
- Catastrophic personal injury
Sometimes a personal injury is so severe that full recovery is impossible. For example, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries can cause disabilities that can last a lifetime. When these types of injuries result from someone else’s careless or reckless behavior, then you may be able to recover significant compensation to cover your injury-related costs for the rest of your life. Our attorneys work with lifecare planners, economists and other experts to ensure that catastrophic injury victims receive full and fair compensation.
