Daniel John Christensen's answer
Yes, she has a potential claim. Who the claim will be against is difficult to tell from what you have written. The restaurant, the local municipality, a builder or the landlord may be responsible depending on the circumstances. What state this occurred in will also affect the potential value and likelihood of success. Please contact my office as soon as you can and we can give you free advice on the potential claim once we have more details. DC Law – 512-220-1800. We look forward to...

Daniel John Christensen's answer
The short answer is, Yes, you can bring a claim. These claims are very difficult to prove, however, so you will need to be sure to have corroborating evidence to support your allegation. Additionally, these claims are very expensive to pursue, so your damages need to warrant a substantial recovery if you are going to find a lawyer willing to take your case. We handle police excessive force cases and am happy to discuss it with you. Please call us at 512-220-1800.

Daniel John Christensen's answer
I am very sorry to hear about what happened to you. Assuming this happened in Texas, you would have up to two years from the date of the incident to bring a negligence claim against the hospital or responsible medical care providers. You should know that these cases can be very complicated. Assuming what you experienced was medical malpractice, there are special rules governing that type of claim. I would encourage you to contact a Board-Certified Personal Injury Trial Lawyer like DC Law as...

Answered on Jan 30, 2019
Daniel John Christensen's answer
The situation you describe seems pretty complicated. I would need to know a lot more before I could advise you appropriately on what your best course of action is. But, I can tell you that if you have a legitimate claim to money that is being held in reference to another lawsuit, you can typically intervene into that lawsuit to make your claim. My advice would be for you to contact a board-certified consumer lawyer at your earliest convenience. I am a board-certified lawyer, but in injury...

1 Answer | Asked in Employment Law, Personal Injury and Workers' Compensation for Texas on
Answered on Jan 14, 2019
Daniel John Christensen's answer
There is nothing legally keeping you from working your second job that can be done with restricted or limited duty. But, you should be extremely careful so that you do not aggravate your injury, which the defense will use to argue they should not have to be responsible for treatment after that point. I can't speak to your case specifically without knowing more. I would recommend you hire a Board Certified Personal Injury Trial Lawyer like DC Law to get advice on your case. 512.888.9999.

Q: Why is a a trial date set in a personal injury lawsuit, if they’ve been offered policy limits?

Answered on Dec 17, 2018
Daniel John Christensen's answer
If your insurance carrier was presented a "Stowers" demand for an amount within your policy limits and they failed to respond before the deadline, then the claimant can still proceed forward to try to get a verdict in excess of the policy limits. That would be one reason they set a trail date in spite of the carrier now offering policy limits.

Answered on Nov 26, 2018
Daniel John Christensen's answer
It would depend on what information is available? Do you have a license plate? A description of the car and driver? Identifying the driver who ran into you would provide you a potential remedy other than your own UM/UIM coverage. If you are significantly injured, you might be able to also pursue the manufacturer of your vehicle if it failed to perform in the collision and such failure resulted in you suffering more severe injuries. If you would like to discuss, you are always welcome to...

Answered on Nov 13, 2018
Daniel John Christensen's answer
I’m so sorry you were injured as a result of someone else’s fault. Premises liability cases (also known as “slip and fall” or “trip and fall” cases) occur too often in Texas grocery stores. The grocery stores and their attorneys may try to allege that you share some fault in the incident (also known as contributory negligence). However, keep in mind that the grocery store and their attorneys will never look out for your best interest.

It is in your best interest to...

Yes, you can sue all three. Often times, when an 18-wheeler is involved, there are different people and/or entities that own the rig, own the trailer, operate the rig, and drive the rig. All of these people/entities are potential defendants depending on the facts. Additionally, depending on the facts of your case, there may be a potential product liability case against the manufacturer of the vehicle your son was in. All of these cases are extremely complex and expensive to prosecute, so it...
