With little protection, motorcycle riders tend to suffer the most serious injuries of all roadway accident victims. Injured riders also face several unique difficulties when filing personal injury claims, including insurance companies' use of rider stereotypes to shift blame away from their drivers and unfairly compensate injured victims.

When they cause accidents that result in injuries, they can be held fully liable to compensate victims, as well as subject to harsh criminal penalties.

Negligent boat operators — a fair amount of whom are drunk boaters — can cause accidents that result in serious injuries. When these boating accidents happen, victims can file personal injury claims.
Bus drivers and companies are held to higher standards of safety and care than drivers of other motor vehicles. Accidents involving passenger carrier automobiles require thorough investigations to determine the extent of liability. Once liability can be established, injured passengers can obtain compensation.
As a hub in the heart of the South, Texas is crisscrossed by thousands of miles of railroad track. Victims who have been injured in a train accident or in a motor vehicle incident at a railroad intersection or crossing may be eligible to receive compensation.
Slip & Fall Incidents
Premises liability is an area of law that requires property owners to ensure that they provide safe and healthy conditions for their visitors and guests. When they fail to do so, injury-causing accidents can result. The most common premises liability accidents involve slips and falls that are caused by unsafe conditions.
There are a variety of causes of pool accidents, including a lack of supervision or lifeguards, defective drains and pool equipment, and unmarked or poorly marked depth signs. Depending on the circumstances involved, victims injured in pool accidents can file claims against a responsible party that can enable them to obtain compensation.
Victims injured by dog bites or attacks can file personal injury claims against a dog's owner. These cases can be difficult as they depend on proving the negligence of a dog owner to keep others safe and free from preventable harm.

Product Liability Cases
Product liability is an area of law that holds companies, manufacturers and retailers responsible for products that injure consumers. Whether consumers are injured by design flaws, manufacturing defects or product recalls, they can file claims against companies that can allow them to receive compensation.
Sexual Abuse Cases
