Personal Injury Practice
Our goal at The Ewing Law Firm is to help our clients understand when they have a right to recovery for their losses in cases of:
- Trucking, motorcycle and automobile accidents
- Animal injury/dog bite
- Wrongful death
Trucking accidents can happen quickly and often end tragically. These accidents can be due to such things as driver fatigue, mechanical or brake failure, load fastener failure and driving conditions. We are experienced to help you assess the potential merits of your case.
Animal injuries and bites are many times covered by homeowner insurance policies. In these instances, the animal's owner incurs limited out-of-pocket costs. If you have experienced an animal injury, please contact us to discuss the circumstances surrounding your unique case and your potential options for recovery.
Wrongful death. A wrongful death has occurred when a person is killed due to the negligence or other liability of a person or entity. When this occurs, surviving beneficiaries and dependents are often entitled to monetary damages. Texas' Wrongful Death Act provides the exclusive remedy for wrongful death in Texas, and compensates the spouse, parents, and children of the deceased for the losses they sustained as a result of the loved one's injury and death.
A wrongful death claim typically involves:
- Death caused, partially or entirely, by the conduct of another person or entity
- Person or entity was negligent, or strictly liable, for victim's death
- Surviving beneficiaries or dependents exist
- Monetary damages have resulted from individual's death
If you believe that you have been victimized in one of the areas mentioned above, please call us for a consultation to discuss your individual circumstances.
