Injured by a drunk driver, we can help

In Texas, many people have suffered from the negligence of drunk drivers. In most cases, the victim was simply at the wrong place at the wrong time. But, what happens when the victim suffers injuries that are severe or even fatal?

Most insurance companies will try to minimize their client's exposure to liability, simply by offering a fast settlement, and pretending that they are friends and looking out the best interest of the victim. Slogans such as "in good hands" are used to simply mislead the public.

Like most business, insurance companies are created to make money. They do not make money by paying out on all claims filed. When an insured is drunk, their potential exposure increases, and so should the payment to the victim. In many cases the insurance companies themselves contact the injured victims, so that they do not feel the need to contact an attorney.

When this happens, often is a fatal mistake, and one that insurance companies love to have to their advantage. Drunk drives are a problem in Texas road and they should be dealt with accordingly. Since a quick settlement may appear to the lay person as a good thing, in tern the insurance company have capitalized and improved their bottom line.

Insurance companies have been playing this game for too long, and they are very good at it. Every one must know that, insurance companies have a legal team of their own, but yet, they are willing and often wanting to settle with the victim of a tragedy, without allowing them their legal protection.

It is time for the injured victims to level the plane field. It is time to have a legal team, that cares about your legal needs. It is time for the injured victim to contact The Baez Law Firm, P.C.

If you have been a victim of a drunk driver, give us a call (210) 979-9777 because you need legal representation and you need a team that will fight for your legal rights.

Medical Malpractice law in Texas

The law has changed in Texas, sometimes to the detriment of the victims of malpractice. This is true in the area of wrongful death. Years ago, a victims family could file a wrongful death or survivor actions for the wrongful actions of a doctor that negligently procured the death of the loved one. Now a days, that is no longer the case.

Texas law changed with proposition number 12, which created section 74 of the civil practice and remedies code. This is a very broad law that pretty much swallows a wrongful death action against any doctor or medical treatment facility for that matter. The law created the infamous "caps" on non-economical damages.

The proponents of the law, falsely accused trial attorneys of filing numerous frivolous law suits which allegedly increased the premiums on doctors, making it impossible for them to practice medicine. With that lie, the public voted for proposition number 12 and the results have been catastrophic.

A victim of a doctor's negligence is only allowed a recovery of $250,000 no matter what the injury was. In other words, lets supposed that you were a prominent entrepreneur, making millions every year, and you had a stomach pain. You go to the doctor and the doctor negligently takes your kidney out, but you only had indigestion. Now you have to be on dialysis for the rest of your life, your sex life is gone and your wife left you. Now you are broke, can't work and are placed on disability by the social security. Your maximum amount of recovery against the doctor is $250,000. And you are expected to live the rest of your life with that.

Let's supposed that you are an avid dancer that loves to take your wife dancing every weekend. You have back pain, and decide to go to the doctor for pain management. A neurosurgeon tells you that you have pinched nerves, but tells you that he can help you with a simple surgery. You decide to go through with the surgery, but the doctor severs a nerve in your spine that leaves you with drop foot. Now, you cannot dance and you are in constant pain. You have to wear a boot for the rest of your life and of course, no more dancing for you or your wife. The doctor gets to continue to make the same mistake to other victims, and your life, as you knew it is over. But wait, you may get $250,000 form the insurance, assuming that you find an attorney that will take your case.

Medical Malpractice law in Texas has become an obstacle for the people who really needs it the most, the injured victims. Because of false information, victims are now facing the harsh reality that, they will never be compensated for he wrongful actions of irresponsible doctors. And by the way, doctors came to Texas by the thousands when the law changed.
