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... Read more »

Harris County has a searchable electronic docket, however, there are only certain ways to search. Go to the court’s website and/or call the clerk and they may be able to help. Good luck.

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

I have no assets, liability is not an issue, there were no serious injuries, so I’m a little confused as to why they choose to continue on with this.

Q: If I slipped and fell due to a puddle of water in a grocery store, can the store argue I was partially to blame because

I was texting while walking and too distracted to see the puddle as a way to get around paying for my medical bills?

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... Read more »
