If you have been hurt in an accident, you are understandably upset, confused, and worried about the future. You are suffering both physically and emotionally—wondering if you will ever be the same again. In addition, you are now experiencing financial difficulties due to mounting medical costs and lost work time. In short, your life has been turned upside down. Relax, you are not alone; a Board Certified Houston accident attorney at Vujasinovic & Beckcom is standing by to help. We are based in Houston, Texas, and handle cases nationwide and around the world.
If you have been injured due to the carelessness or negligence of another, a Houston personal injury lawyer can help you to obtain the compensation you deserve. Our attorneys regularly help those seriously injured in car wrecks, vessel and offshore rig accidents, land based work accidents, truck or 18-wheeler accidents, and bus crashes. We also assist accident victims who have suffered brain injuries, neck, back and other orthopedic injuries, and burns, as well as those who have been hurt by dangerous drugs and unsafe medical devices. In addition, for those who have lost a loved in an accident, we handle wrongful death lawsuits.
Our law firm is recognized throughout the nation—and, in fact, all around the world—for our expertise in handling offshore injury and Jones Act cases. These cases typically involve situations where a worker is injured on a floating offfshore rig like a jack up or semi-submersible rig, or on any type of vessel such as a tug boat, crew boat, barge, dredge, supply boat, cargo ship, and other marine vessels. Jobs in the maritime industry can be very dangerous. Heavy equipment and unsafe conditions make the atmosphere ripe for serious injury. An offshore injury can be severe and cause permanent disability or even death. If you have suffered a serious maritime injury such as dismemberment, brain injury, spinal cord injury, severe burns, or an orthopedic injury to your neck, back or other body part, an experienced Houston offshore injury lawyer can help. Compensation for offshore rig and vessel injuries is governed by a complex set of laws: maritime law and the Jones Act. Because of this complexity, it makes good sense to obtain the services of an experienced Houston Jones Act attorney in order to obtain the best possible financial settlement for you and your family for losses such as medical expenses, lost wages, maintenance & cure, physical impairment, pain and suffering, and disfigurement.
A serious work injury on land can result in either temporary or permanent disability and may greatly reduce your ability to work. Depending on the nature of your injury, you may suffer total disability and be unable to work at all. In extreme cases, an employment injury can be fatal, leaving your family behind to pick up the pieces and try to muddle through financially. If you have been hurt while working a land based job, a Houston accident lawyer can help you to obtain the compensation you and your family are due. Our Board Certified attorneys frequently handle employment injury cases involving workers’ compensation, third party claims, nonsubscriber claims, industrial plant accidents, work-related fires and explosions, and FELA/railroad claims.
