Our Areas of Practice +
Car Accidents Car Accidents
Car Accidents Like any metropolitan area, Laredo sees its share of tragic car accidents. To an outsider, these crashes may seem more-or-less routine; but there is nothing routine about an accident for its victims, who often sustain catastrophic, life-altering injuries. At The Patel Firm, we understand how car accident injuries create enormous physical, emotional, and financial challenges in our clients’ lives. Our mission is to hold whomever caused that accident to account, and to ensure our clients receive the compensation they need to recover from their injuries. Read More
Bicycle Accidents Bicycle Accidents
Bicycle Accidents You do not have to drive a motor vehicle to use a roadway in Laredo. Lots of local residents and visitors ride bicycles to commute and for exercise. Like motorcyclists, pedal cyclists have the right to occupy a lane of traffic and to have motor vehicles yield to them. Unfortunately, also like motorcyclists, bicyclists often get short shrift from motorists who refuse to share the road and to observe safe habits. Bicycle accidents can leave cyclists with life-threatening injuries. The Patel Firm fights for compensation to help injured cyclists get back in the saddle. Read More
Oilfield Accidents Oilfield Accidents
Oilfield Accidents Workers on offshore oil rigs and on-shore refineries do jobs that sometimes put them in harm’s way. An accident that leaves a rig operator or refinery employee injured triggers legal obligations for the worker’s employer and others intended to make sure workers do not sacrifice their bodies for a job, only to lack the resources to recover. The Patel Firm has years of experience helping oil-industry workers pursue the compensation they have every right to expect for the injuries they sustain on the job. Read More
Slip & Fall Accidents Slip & Fall Accidents
Slip & Fall Accidents Falling down, as ordinary as it might seem, constitutes one of the most common ways that Laredo residents and visitors, particularly those over age 65, sustain catastrophic injuries. Lawyers sometimes refer to accidental falls as slip-and-fall incidents, but of course we all know that slipping is just one of many ways a person can take a tumble. Property owners have legal obligations to keep visitors to their properties safe. Our team works to hold property owners to account when someone takes a fall because of their failure to uphold those obligations. Read More
Pedestrian Injury Pedestrian Injury
Pedestrian Injury Anyone operating a vehicle on a road in Laredo, be it a car, truck, motorcycle, or bicycle, assumes the critical responsibility of taking care to keep pedestrians safe. Crossing the street or walking along a road shoulder should never amount to risking one’s life. The team at The Patel Firm understands the devastation a collision between a motor vehicle and a human being can cause. We fight to make sure pedestrian victims and their families receive every dollar of compensation they deserve. Read More
Motorcycle Accidents Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle Accidents Motorcyclists know they take some risks by riding in the open air. In an accident, little protects a biker from a violent impact with another vehicle, a roadside object, or the road itself. Still, just because motorcyclists take risks does not mean that other motorists have a right to disregard motorcyclist safety on the roads. Motorcycles have the right to occupy a full lane of traffic, and to expect cars and trucks to yield to them as they would to any other vehicle. At The Patel Firm, we fight for compensation for motorcyclists when motorists instead take a careless approach to biker safety. Read More
18-Wheeler Accidents 18-Wheeler Accidents
18-Wheeler Accidents Truck accidents, like car accidents, inflict enormous suffering on their victims. Unlike many car accidents, however, truck accidents frequently involve significant legal and factual complications that make recovering compensation difficult. The team at The Patel Firm knows how to sort through the physical devastation and legal tangles caused by a car accident to pinpoint and pursue the parties with legal liability for paying injured victims their due in damages. Read More
Wrongful Death Wrongful Death
Wrongful Death No family should ever have to suffer the tragedy of losing a loved one to an accidental injury. When the worst occurs, however, Texas law allows surviving family members to pursue legal action for wrongful death. The Patel Firm never hopes to see anyone come through our doors mourning an untimely death, but we give the full measure of our commitment when families need our help-seeking justice and damages for their loved one.

Seek the Legal Guidance of an Experienced Laredo Personal Injury Lawyer

If you’ve been injured by someone else’s negligence, an experienced Laredo personal injury Lawyer has the legal insight to skillfully advocate for your claim’s most advantageous resolution.

If you are injured by someone else’s negligence in an accident, the losses you experience can be immense. Reaching your fullest recovery is likely to be a journey, but obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled can provide you with the leg up you need for recovering to the extent possible. If this is the difficult position you find yourself in, it’s time to consult with an experienced Laredo personal injury attorney.

The Basis of a Personal Injury Claim in Laredo, TX

In order to bring a successful personal injury claim, specific elements must be met.

You Were Owed a Duty of Care

The first matter that must be established in your personal injury claim is that the at-fault party owed you a duty of care in the first place. A prime example of this responsibility to the safety of others is the duty of care we all accept when we get behind the wheel of a car. When you drive, you are responsible for following the rules of the road and for allowing the safe passage of those with whom you share the road. Another example is the responsibility that commercial property owners and managers owe their invited guests and customers.

That Duty of Care Was Breached

The next element of your claim is that the at-fault party breached the duty of care owed to you – or failed to live up to his or her responsibility to your safety. All of the following are common examples of how motorists breach the duty of care they owe others on the road:

  • Failure to follow the safety rules of the road
  • Distraction
  • Aggression
  • Exhaustion
  • Excess speed
  • Impairment

Property owners who fail to maintain their premises in reasonable repair are another common cause of personal injury claims.

The At-Fault Party’s Lapse Caused Your Accident

The negligence of the at-fault party must have caused the accident at the heart of your claim. For example, if a drunk driver who is running a red light slams into you on your motorcycle in an intersection, the drunk driver’s negligence is clearly responsible for your motorcycle accident.

You Suffered Losses Addressed by the Law

You must suffer losses or legal damages that are addressed by the law as a result of the other driver’s negligence in order for them to be covered in a personal injury claim. These losses include (as discussed above):

  • Property damage (such as to your vehicle in a traffic accident)
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost earnings
  • Pain and suffering

What Types of Compensation May I Claim After a Laredo Personal Injury?

If you’ve been injured by someone else’s negligence, you can seek compensation in three primary categories.

Medical Costs

The medical costs associated with serious injuries tend to start out high and to grow more costly from there. If you suffer complications or secondary health concerns, you can expect long-term medical expenses. Some of the most common medical costs associated with personal injury claims include:

  • Emergency treatment and care, including emergency transportation
  • Surgery and follow-up care
  • Hospital stays
  • Treatment and care from doctors, specialists, and therapists
  • Medical procedures, treatments, and tests
  • Prescription medications
  • Chiropractic care and other forms of holistic care
  • Pain management
  • Physical therapy, occupational therapy, and rehabilitation
  • Adaptive physical devices and physical adaptations to home, office, and vehicle

 

Lost Income

A serious injury can lay you low for a considerable amount of time, and while you are recovering, you’re likely to be off the job and to experience related losses in terms of income. If your ability to continue advancing your career is affected, it can lead to further losses in terms of your earning potential and the emotional challenges you face.

Pain and Suffering

The pain and suffering associated with being injured as a result of someone else’s negligence can be immense and ongoing. Effects such as not being able to take on life the way you used to, not being able to engage in the activities you enjoy, and being slowed down generally can all take a considerable toll on you emotionally and should not be ignored.

Ensuring that your personal injury claim encompasses each category of loss in its entirety is an essential element of your ability to recover fully, and leaving this aspect of your claim to your seasoned personal injury attorney is well advised.

Understand More about Laredo

If you’ve been injured by someone else’s negligence in Laredo, you’re going through a lot, and while recovering on your losses is paramount, you may not know where to begin. A dedicated car accident lawyer in Laredo City can help you identify your comprehensive losses and help you effectively and efficiently go after the compensation to which you are entitled.

Laredo Accident Injury Statistics

The most common personal injury claims in Laredo include:

  • Car, bike, truck, motorcycle, pedestrian, and other kinds of traffic accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents, dog bites, and other kinds of premises liability claims
  • Accidents that lead to catastrophic injuries
  • Wrongful death claims, which are based on negligence and – as such – are very similar to personal injury claims

The path forward after an injury that was caused by someone else’s negligence is often very challenging, and having a dedicated personal injury attorney on your side is in your best interest.

Top Dangerous Roads/Intersections in Laredo, TX

Some of the most dangerous roads and intersections in Laredo include:

  • Access to Interstate 35
  • 69W underpass

What Happens After You Hire Our Laredo Personal Injury Lawyer?

Once you’ve hired one of our Laredo personal injury lawyers, we can help in all the following ways:

  • Your attorney will gather all the available evidence relevant to your claim in his or her efforts to build your strongest claim. This evidence includes police reports, eyewitness testimony, physical evidence left at the scene, and more.
  • Your attorney will hire the expert witnesses and will have the accident recreation models made that are necessary to bolster your claim.
  • Your attorney will communicate with the insurance company on your behalf. Insurance companies are far too good at guiding vulnerable claimants like you into making statements that ultimately damage their own claims.
  • Your attorney will skillfully negotiate with the insurance company for a settlement that fairly addresses your losses in their entirety.
  • Your attorney will be well prepared to take your claim to court if the insurance company refuses to negotiate a fair settlement.

Having a personal injury attorney in your corner can significantly improve your ability to obtain a fair settlement or court award.
