Types of cases we handle at Weinstein Law
Our East Texas law firm has a reputation for excellent client service and our aggressive negotiating techniques. We get results for our clients. Weinstein Law represents injured victims in all types of negligence accidents, including those involving:
Slip and Fall Accidents. These types of personal injury accidents can happen anywhere in Texas – in stores, houses, restaurants, bars, hotels, shopping malls, parking lots, etc. Property owners have a responsibility to make sure their premises are safe for visitors. When their negligence causes you to slip, fall, and get hurt, Jeff can help you get the justice and compensation you deserve.
Negligent Security. Assaults on private property are often due to the owner's failure to provide adequate security. We take this matter seriously and our legal team will conduct a thorough investigation to uncover the facts. We will leave no stone unturned as we search for evidence of the property owner's negligence in ensuring proper security. We will track down any witnesses who can shed light on the lack of security and conduct our own interviews to build a strong case.
Dog Bites. Dogs can inflict severe damage with tremendous force. Even a so-called “minor” dog bite has the potential to result in permanent scarring and other complications. Nerve damage may impede the usage of limbs or hands. Emotional and psychological trauma is another debilitating consequence that dog attack survivors often endure. Be it a private or public area, a dog bite attack can occur anywhere, including someone's abode. However, it is the owner's duty to ensure that their canine companion is appropriately trained and monitored to prevent any such mishaps.
Premises Liability. Regardless of whether the property is private or commercial, it is the owners' duty to ensure the safety of their premises. They must take all necessary measures to prevent any harm or injury to individuals. This legal obligation is commonly known as premises liability, and failure to meet this obligation can result in owners being held accountable for any injuries sustained on their property.
Boating Accidents. Boat accident injuries can arise in a multitude of ways, and the causes are not limited to an operator's negligence or impairment. It's possible that the accident resulted from a malfunction in the boat's equipment, which the manufacturer should have addressed. Regardless of the cause, the outcome remains the same: you are a victim of an unfortunate accident that has caused you harm. We can help.
Wrongful Death. In any personal injury accident, be it a car wreck, truck collision, or motorcycle crash, a fatal injury can occur. Cases involving wrongful death are complex and proving negligence can be a daunting task. However, Jeff Weinstein is unwavering in his commitment to aiding family members in obtaining answers following the tragic and senseless loss of their loved ones.
What does injury insurance cover after a Texas accident?
Liability insurance typically covers economic damages and, to a lesser degree, non-economic damages. In personal injury law, “damages” refers to a victim’s financial and emotional losses. Economic damages are for losses with objective expenses like medical bills. Non-economic damages are for things that are harder to put a price on like pain and suffering.
Types of damages a personal injury accident victim may recover include:
- Medical expenses.
- Occupational and physical therapy.
- Damaged property.
- Lost wages.
- Diminished earning potential.
- Pain and suffering.
In Texas, who is liable for a personal injury accident?
Typically, whoever is at fault in an accident is the one who pays for the victim’s damages. If that person has applicable insurance, the insurance company is liable for damages. If you are injured by someone else’s negligence and they do not have applicable insurance, you may need to file a civil lawsuit against them to recover compensation. In a personal injury claim, there are many types of people who may be at fault for the resulting injuries, including but not limited to:
- Property owners and landlords.
- Business owners.
- Municipal governments.
- Defective product manufacturers.
- Dog owners.
The experience to get the job done
Jeff starts by investigating your accident to get the facts. His legal team knows where to look for evidence of negligence. Jeff carefully reviews all documentation related to the accident, including medical records, photographs and the police report, if there is one. We identify and interview witnesses. If needed, Jeff consults experts who can help explain what happened.
Insurance companies have lots of tactics they use to avoid paying you compensation. They'll say there is no evidence of negligence. They'll question the extent of your injuries, or claim they were pre-existing. They may even blame you for what happened. Or, they'll make you a lowball offer in the hope you'll take less money to just go away.
Jeff doesn't wait for insurance companies to do the right thing. He focuses on building a strong case that shows the negligence of another led to the accident that left you hurt. When insurance companies see that Jeff is prepared to fight them in court, they usually become very open to negotiating a settlement.
But Jeff will make sure that any resolution of your case is one that meets your needs. This includes compensation for all medical expenses related to your injuries - both now and in the future. It includes any lost wages you suffered because you were unable to work. There may also be other damages, such as pain and suffering.
