Personal Injury

Personal injury is a complex legal procedure. When you’ve been injured in a car wreck or as the result of another catastrophic event, you need a personal injury attorney to negotiate with insurance companies and other third parties to ensure you get a fair settlement. An accident injury attorney makes sure all your paperwork is in order to submit to insurance companies to get the highest settlement possible. If you’ve been severely burned in a car accident or other incident, you need a burn injury lawyer or catastrophic injury attorney to represent your best interests.

You deserve to be compensated fairly for your injuries. Contact Jon L. Anderson Law Office, the top personal injury lawyer in East Texas, to schedule a consultation.

With personal injury cases, we don’t get paid unless our client receives a settlement. We do all the work and pay all the case costs. Those costs are reimbursed to us only after we successfully resolve the case. We stand between you and the insurance company.

Accidents involving 18-wheelers can be devastating and can result in severe injury or death. 

Truck drivers have special duties on the road. They are limited in the number of hours they can drive in a 24- hour period and must maintain logbooks to keep track of their driving time. In cases where a truck driver tries to falsify a logbook, the truck computer can be examined to confirm the actual driving times. 

Big trucks are typically protected by more insurance than passenger cars. It’s important for your attorney to discover the size of the policy. Truck drivers can be negligent in the same ways as ordinary drivers, and they can be held responsible in the same ways too.

There are many types of automobile accidents. For example, a wreck caused by a defendant driving too fast constitutes negligence and allows the victim the opportunity to seek a recovery for damages; that includes medical bills, lost wages, physical impairment, disfigurement, pain and suffering, and mental anguish. 

Negligence can also be in the form of running a stop sign or red light, failure to signal a turn, driver inattention, illegal lane change, failure to yield right of way, following too closely, fatigued or sleeping driver, and many others.

 

Uninsured Driver

 

Uninsured motorist (UIM) coverage picks up the damages where the insurance of the defendant runs out. The minimum policy required in Texas for liability coverage is $30,000, but it doesn’t take many trips to the ER, MRI’s, or doctor visits to exceed that policy limit. 

As the victim of a car wreck, you may make a claim under your UIM policy, but this must be done correctly to avoid possibly forfeiting your UIM coverage completely. You need an experienced personal injury lawyer to navigate all this, and to handle your claim to maximize your recovery. 

If you don’t have UIM coverage please consider getting it through your insurance agent.  If you have questions about this process please contact us.

 

Distracted Driver

 

One of the most dangerous problems today is drivers using cell phones; we have all seen it happen. You know when you’re following one of these people on the road, and a momentary lapse in attention is all it takes to kill or injure another person. 

There are many other distractions that can cause driving accidents.  Daydreaming, picking something up from the floorboard, or tending to a child are simple activities that can cause a serious wreck.

 

Drunk Driver

 

Juries are typically very sympathetic to victims who have been affected by drunk driving, and that can be very helpful to the injured party.

A criminal conviction for vehicular homicide or manslaughter increases the chance for a favorable result. 

A lawyer who knows how to obtain the relevant information and how to use it can be very valuable. Demonstrative evidence like photographs of the devastation or of the area where the accident occurred can be powerful.

Even a seemingly minor car accident can change your life. The injuries you sustain can significantly impact your ability to work and your quality of life. If you’ve been involved in an accident, you need an auto injury attorney to negotiate a fair settlement with insurance companies and other involved parties. Jon L. Anderson is a top car injury attorney with a winning record for getting his clients fair payouts.

Generally, air traffic is considered to be one of the safest forms of travel available today. However, when accidents do occur, they are far more severe than the average fender bender – often resulting in severe injury and fatalities. Though not fatal, many smaller accidents involving private aircraft are much more frequent than the public realizes. Regardless, injury or hardship caused by negligent behavior or defective manufacturing in aviation often has dire consequences. Our attorneys have the experience and technical expertise necessary to work through the complexities of aviation law and build an effective case on behalf of clients who have been unfairly burdened due to an aviation accident.
These types of cases are commonly the result of automobile accidents, but not always. A runaway roller coaster or train can cause severe traumatic injuries resulting in paralysis. Any kind of serious impact can result in spinal cord injuries. 

These types of injuries often require life care plans. Having a lawyer experienced in properly preparing these cases for trial, knowing such nuances, can even enhance the recovery process. Being able to paint a picture for the jury of the life altering impact of spinal cord injuries is very helpful to the victim.

When it comes to dealing with horses, effective legal representation requires that a lawyer have a thorough knowledge of tort, contract, and administrative practice. Perhaps more importantly, our attorneys understand the “language” specific to the horse industry as well as the specialized trade practices that are often unfamiliar to those not regularly involved in the business. Texas does have a specific set of legal statutes that address the needs of the equine community, and our attorneys are familiar with the needs of the horse community and is up-to-date on current equine law developments. Our attorneys grew up working with horses and continue their passion today. They can put their specialized knowledge and years of experience to work on your behalf if you have been wrongfully injured in an equine accident.
In this part of the country, farm and ranch work is a cornerstone of our heritage and our economy. Our outdoors is where we both work and play. Our attorneys have spent countless hours on farms and ranches, having grown up cowboying and hunting on farms and ranches from a young age. We still spend our free time at our farms, and when we are not in the courtroom, we are usually hunting and fishing. We understand both the wonderful lifestyle a rural setting creates and – we also know the potential for severe injuries that exists when a landowner or animal owner does not take the proper precautions to ensure your safety. If you or a loved one was injured on a farm or ranch, you should contact our lawyers immediately. You may be entitled to compensation by filing a lawsuit in Texas.
It is estimated that hundreds of people die each year in hunting accidents, and many more hunters, property owners, and bystanders are tragically injured. Unfortunately, a large number of these injuries are the result of preventable accidents caused by negligent, careless behavior. If you have been harmed by another person or company in a needless hunting accident, our attorneys are prepared to hold them accountable for the damage they caused to you and your family.
Deeply experienced with Farm and Ranch law, our attorneys also handle cases involving automotive accidents caused by livestock. Our attorneys grew up working with livestock and still spend countless hours there with friends and family. We understand these settings, the animals, and the motorized equipment that go along with them.  Despite our rich history with livestock, Texas has stock laws restricting where animals are permitted to roam unfenced, though counties without stock laws are “open range.” If you were injured in one of these counties, you must meet a higher standard to prove a livestock owner was negligent in failing to restrain their animals. Our attorneys have wide-ranging experience in venues across the state in livestock cases, have compiled an exemplary record, and can represent you if you have been injured in a livestock accident.
Property owners have a duty to ensure their premises do not present a danger to guests. 

If the property owner knows of a dangerous condition and fails to correct it or warn guests, the owner is negligent and responsible for the resulting damages. For example, a hole or uneven pavement that is not readily apparent to the guest constitutes blame. Having a swimming pool or other dangerous attraction that is not fenced off is another example.
