Workplace Accident Attorneys – Personal Injury Law

All Defendants Fight to Avoid Paying Damages in Wrongful Death Workplace Lawsuits

In all non-subscriber and third-party fatal workplace injury cases, many defendants will have large insurance companies with lots of good attorneys to aggressively represent them. The rest will be “self-insured” or uninsured. And every defendant does everything they can to wiggle out of paying damages to the surviving family members.

Non-subscribers’ insurance companies have attorneys either on staff or permanent retainers. They are very good defenders of their clients against claimants like you who try to sue them. Insurance companies are belligerent in their resistance. And from the opening gavel, they cry for relief from yet another nuisance suit. But they don’t always win, especially when you have an experienced lawyer who knows how to counter every obstacle they place in our path.construction accident attorneys

But as bad as the insurance companies can be in a fatal injury claim or lawsuit, they are subject to a certain amount of regulations that surround their deportment during their legal defense. But employers who are self-insured or have no insurance whatsoever are not bound by such rules; or any rules at all, other than those surrounding criminal behavior. And some defendants don’t even respect those. So they will often blatantly display underhanded behavior when survivors of a fatally injured worker take legal action against them to recover damages. And that behavior runs the gamut from questionable to obscenely illegal if they think they can get away with it.

You will likely deal directly with a company officer if the self-insured firm is a small one. This person’s salary is tied directly to company profits. Restitution that is paid for any injury comes directly out of company funds (or a bond if they have one). So by compensating you, your deceased loved one’s employer is literally taking money out of his own pocket. So it comes as no surprise when a sneaky, self-insured company officer uses any and all means to oppose your claim in order to protect his company’s, and his personal, assets.

Many times we’ve seen self-insured companies deliberately destroy evidence as well as a bribe or intimidate witnesses. They sometimes even resort to physical threats against witnesses or others they see as “friends of the plaintiff.” This is why every time we represent a client against a self-insured company, the first thing we do is to file motions in court to prevent anyone within the company from behaving inappropriately against our clients. Sometimes these motions include clear demands that they make no attempt to communicate with our clients in any way without one of our attorneys present.

Bexar County Truck Accidents on I-10 | 18 Wheeler Accident Lawyers

Bexar County Truck Accidents on I-10

As a resident or visitor to Bexar County, you know that Interstate 10 isn’t the only road you’ll find trucks on. Big-rigs and tractor-trailers frequently travel on all of the major State Routes throughout the county. Unfortunately, major injury and fatality accidents occur far too often on Bexar County roads. The Texas Highway Patrol reported that in Bexar County, a total of 79 people lost their lives in large truck accidents between 2013 and 2017. That is significantly more deaths than in any of the nearby counties. This is how the negligence or carelessness of a few truck drivers can forever alter the lives of innocent occupants in other vehicles.truck accident attorneys

Human error and mechanical failures can both contribute to truck accidents. Drivers that are intoxicated (drugs or alcohol), exhausted, speeding, or distracted are a common cause of accidents. Additionally, trucks may lose control when cargo shifts, if brakes fail, if a tire blows out, or a hitch breaks. Trucking companies could be held responsible for improper maintenance, inadequate trailer lights, or other truck driver negligence.
