When a Car Repair Goes Wrong

Q: Who is responsible for personal injuries sustained in an accident involving a car not repaired in accordance with the auto manufacturer’s repair manual?

"You hold the car's roof and I will apply the glue". A statement like that might conjure up an image of a parent and child playfully using glue while assembling a model car. Because no one would glue the roof onto a real car, right?

Unfortunately for one Texas couple now embroiled in a personal injury lawsuit, an auto collision shop worker admitted to using adhesive glue instead of welding to attach a new roof to a car damaged by hail dents.

Q: Who is responsible for workplace injuries in Texas?

Skilled workplace injury attorneys have specialized knowledge of the state and federal rules that apply to the industries involved in each particular claim and access to relevant experts in workplace safety.

Angel in the Outfield: Texas Softball Player Killed in Freak Accident

Q: Are all car accidents actionable?

Automobile accidents, in the vast majority of cases, involve strangers. That lack of familiarity makes it emotionally easier for victims to pursue a personal injury lawsuit or wrongful death lawsuit against the accident’s responsible driver.

Human life is fragile. Manufacturers of medical devices owe a duty of care to patients to manufacture devices that are fit for purpose and safe for use. When a device manufacturer disregards this duty, causing injury to a patient, that patient can claim damages from the negligent manufacturer for medical expenses, pain and suffering and lost wages incurred as a result of the injury.

Q: What happens if a victim starts a personal injury lawsuit but dies while the case is still pending?

Most people get a watch upon their retirement. Some end up with mesothelioma.

One such man reportedly loved three things: his grandchildren, the Texas Rangers, and his job as a mechanical engineer at an aerospace company. And after being a loyal employee for 38 years, he retired. 

Unfortunately, after a lifetime of working under conditions that subjected him to what one lawyer described as “an ungodly amount of asbestos exposure”, he contracted mesothelioma, a particularly lethal lung cancer caused by exposure to and inhalation of asbestos during his years of employment.
