If you’ve never needed legal assistance after being injured due to someone else’s negligence, you might wonder what types of cases personal injury lawyers handle. At Armstrong Lee & Baker LLP, our Houston personal injury attorneys have extensive experience with a wide range of cases. The following are just a few examples.

What kind of cases do personal injury lawyers handle?

Car Accidents

Car accidents are one of the most common types of personal injury cases. These cases involve collisions between vehicles, often resulting in injuries ranging from minor cuts and bruises to severe trauma or death. Personal injury attorneys help victims of car accidents by negotiating with insurance companies and pursuing compensation for medical bills, vehicle repairs, lost income, and other damages.

Truck Accidents

Large truck accidents led to 810 deaths in Texas in 2022. Accidents involving commercial trucks, such as tractor-trailers or semi-trucks, can cause catastrophic injuries due to the size and weight disparity between trucks and passenger vehicles. Our truck accident attorneys have in-depth knowledge of federal and state regulations governing the trucking industry and the complex liability issues that may arise in these cases.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable on the road and at a higher risk of serious injuries in accidents. Armstrong Lee & Baker LLP personal injury lawyers know the biases against riders. We also know how to defeat those biases through hard evidence showing a motorcyclist didn’t cause an accident.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents account for nearly one million emergency room visits in the U.S. yearly. They occur when individuals slip, trip, or fall on another person’s property due to dangerous conditions such as poor lighting or, wet floors. Attorneys handling slip and fall cases investigate the circumstances of the accident, identify liable parties, and seek compensation for their client’s injuries, medical expenses, and other damages.

Product Liability

Product liability cases involve injuries caused by defective or dangerous products, including defective automobiles, pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices, consumer goods, and more. An Armstrong Lee & Baker LLP attorney will work to hold manufacturers, distributors, and retailers accountable for the harm caused by their products and seek compensation for injured consumers.

Dog Bites

Dog bite injuries can cause physical and emotional trauma, as well as long-term scarring or disfigurement. A skilled personal injury lawyer will advocate for victims’ rights and help them pursue compensation from dog owners or other responsible parties for their injuries, medical expenses, and other damages.

Wrongful Death

In cases where a person’s death occurs due to another party’s recklessness, intentional misconduct, or negligence, surviving family members may pursue a wrongful death claim. Personal injury lawyers representing the estates of deceased individuals seek compensation for the financial and emotional losses suffered by the surviving family members, including funeral expenses, loss of income, and loss of companionship.

These are just a few examples of cases that personal injury lawyers handle. Experienced attorneys have the knowledge, skills, and resources to effectively advocate for the rights of injured individuals and their families.
