A staggering 274 billion miles or more are driven annually on Texas roadways. These billions of miles traveled also result in more than 250,000 people being injured in Texas annually. It has been estimated that there is a wreck every 59 seconds on Texas roadways. In additional to liability insurance, all drivers in Texas should carry uninsured/underinsured motorist and personal injury protection, which are two types of coverage drivers are often encouraged to waived by insurance companies.

Any type of roadway collision can cause a serious injury. But when you are involved in a wreck with an 18-wheeler, the chances of serious injury are significantly increased. The sheer size of an 18-wheeler makes it almost impossible for victims of a collision to escape without injury.
Dog bites from attacks can result in life-long injuries and scarring – both physically, emotionally, and financially. When you, your child, or a loved one is attacked by a dog, you expect the physical injuries to take time to heal but the victim may be unprepared for the emotional toll and life-long fear of dogs. In Texas, dog owners who negligently control their dogs may be liable even if those dogs have never before bit a human.
When you send your children to school, camp, or daycare, you expect a safe environment managed by adults who will take measures to protect them. Unfortunately, a negligent or careless act can result in an injury that may change the life of your child forever.
Kearney Law Firm may be able to help you or your loved one who suffered an injury as a driver, passenger or as a pedestrian.
Nothing will ever make up for the loss of a loved one, particularly when that loss could have been prevented. But wrongful death lawsuits are one way to seek justice. While money can never replace a loved one, a settlement or other recovery may help your family avoid financial jeopardy.
