If you are involved in an accident there are steps you can take to ensure you have necessary evidence. In the video below attorney Ruiz gives info on what to do at your accident scene:

Personal Injury encompasses a broad range of cases in which victims are injured either physically or emotionally by another person's negligent or wrongful action (or inaction). All citizens  are required to adhere to certain standards of behavior. If a person fails to meet these standards and their behavior leads     to the injury of another that causes physical, emotional, and financial hardships, that person can be held liable for the harm that they caused.

The Abogado Ruiz Law Firm works to ensure that our clients, who have suffered hardships through no fault of their own, receive the proper compensation for their injuries. In evaluating whether or not you may have a personal injury case, there are many factors that must be reviewed, with the three key issues focusing on liability, damages, and insurance coverage. Mr. Ruiz and staff are experienced with these matters and can help you determine whether or not you should file a personal injury claim.


Case Evaluation

Whether it is an auto accident, or other type of injury, Attorney Ruiz will do his best to evaluate your case during the free initial consultation. However, there are many factors to be considered and it is unlikely that all of the information needed for a proper case evaluation will be present at the first meeting. Some of those factors are:

1. Past Medical Bills
2. Future Medical Bills
3. Lost Wages
4. Loss of Future Earning Ability
5. Past and Future Pain and Suffering
6. Permanency of the Injury
7. Treatment History
8. Insurance Available

Personal Injury Sections:

• Slip and Fall
• Automobile accidents
• Wrongful death

Slip and Fall

Property owners are responsible for keeping their premises safe and for warning visitors of any potential hazards. People who slip and fall on another person's property due to unsafe conditions may be eligible for compensation. The responsibilities of property owners vary depending on a variety of factors, such as whether the property was used for private purposes, i.e. a personal home, or was used for public purposes, such as a supermarket.

Automobile Accidents

Texas law requires drivers to exercise "reasonable care" in the operation of their motor vehicles. If a driver fails to exercise "reasonable care" they can be considered negligent and can be held responsible for any damages or injuries that they cause. In order for the driver to be held accountable, the injured party must prove that it was the driver's negligence that caused the accident.

Attorney Ruiz has extensive experience in a vast array of accident scenarios to ensure that this necessary burden of proof is met. In some cases car accidents are due to factors unrelated to the driver, while other times one or both of the drivers are at fault. For example, factors that support a driver's negligence could be failing to obey traffic signs or signals, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or driving recklessly.

Conversely, factors that are non-driver related that can contribute to an accident include automobile defects, poorly maintained roads, or malfunctioning traffic devises. After speaking with Personal Injury Law Ruiz, you will be able to determine if another party could be held accountable for all or part of the injuries that you sustained as a result of your accident.

Wrongful Death

A wrongful death suit is brought when a person dies due to the fault of another person or entity. The circumstances can vary from a car accident to a doctor's mistake during surgery. People who depended upon the deceased for financial or emotional support may be entitled to compensation for wrongful death. If someone that you depended passed away due to the fault of another, a wrongful death suit may be a source of healing and restitution for you.

Personal Injury

Personal injury law is designed to compensate those who have been injured, physically or psychologically, because of the fault of another person or corporation. Simply stated, if you have been injured as a result of an accident which was not your fault, or not entirely your fault, you may be entitled to sue the responsible party for damages. A plaintiff in a typical personal injury claim could seek money damages for past and future medical expenses as a result of the injury, past and future lost wages due to being unable to work as a result of the injury, past and future pain and suffering as a result of the injury, past and future loss of normal life as a result of the injury, and mental and emotional distress that might be the result of the injury.
