The Difficulties Presented by a Brain Injury
A brain injury is usually caused by a sudden, powerful blow to the head, such as striking a steering wheel. Symptoms vary, depending upon the part of the brain that was injured and the severity of the accident.
Accident victims may suffer any of the following:
A mild brain injury or concussion, including temporary confusion and headaches
A moderate brain injury, including nausea, memory loss and chronic headaches
A traumatic brain injury, including convulsions or seizures, memory loss, headaches, mood swings, personality changes, or the inability to function as before
It is not uncommon for the victim of a brain injury to feel normal in the immediate aftermath of an accident. They may feel only slightly dizzy or fatigued, and refuse any medical treatment. However, this can prove to be a major mistake as the symptoms of a brain injury may not fully appear until later. By then it may be too late. It is therefore absolutely imperative that anyone who suffered some form of head injury seek the appropriate medical screening and treatment as soon as possible.

Liquor Liability & Dram Shop
Choosing a Qualified Houston Dram Shop Injury Lawyer
A dram shop is a place where alcoholic beverages are sold. Under the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code, the Dram Shop Act provides for two causes of action for a plaintiff’s injuries that resulted from the provision of alcoholic beverage by (1) a commercial provider to an obviously intoxicated adult or (2) any adult not authorized by statute 2.02(c)(1) to a minor under the age of 18. Tex. Alco. Bev. Code statute 2.02(b),(c).
Providing Alcohol to Intoxicated Adult – Houston Dram Shop Injury Lawyer
The purpose of the Dram Shop Act is to discourage providers of alcoholic beverages from serving alcoholic beverages to obviously intoxicated individuals who may inflict serious injury on themselves or others. F.F.P. Oper. Parters v. Duenez, 237 S.W.3d 680, 683 (Tex. 2007); Smith v. Sewell, 858 S.W.2d 350, 354 (Tex. 1993). A provider’s liability is direct because it is based on the provider’s own wrongful conduct.
Liability under the Dram Shop Act for providing an alcoholic beverage to an adult recipient does not require that the defendant’s provision of the alcoholic beverage contributed to the recipient’s intoxication. Therefore, the plaintiff is not required to prove the recipient actually drank the alcoholic beverage the defendant provided; simply proving the defendant provided the beverage is sufficient.
Providing Alcohol to Minor – Houston Dram Shop Injury Lawyer
The Dram Shop Act permits the recovery of damages from an adult who provides alcoholic beverages to a minor under the age of 18 who, as a result of intoxication, injuries another person. Tex. Alco. Bev. Code statute 2.02(c).
It is a violation of criminal law for most persons to sell or provide alcohol to a minor or to purchase alcohol for a minor. A parent, guardian, spouse, or custodian of a minor may purchase alcohol for or give alcohol to the minor if the person is visibly present when the minor possesses or consumes the alcohol.
Choosing a Qualified Houston Worker Compensation Lawyer
When to Find a Houston Worker Compensation Lawyer RJ Alexander Law PLLC
If you are hurt on the job, you need a Houston workers’ compensation lawyer to represent you. Workers’ compensation claim can be complicated and time-consuming, and your employer’s insurance company will be trying to minimize the settlement for your injuries. If you have been hurt at work, you need to find a Houston personal injury law firm that handles worker compensation cases. The Houston worker compensation lawyer RJ Alexander Law PLLC can help you file your claim.
Workers’ compensation is an insurance system that is similar to auto accident claims. Your employer pays for an insurance policy that protects them from being sued if their employees are injured. Instead, when the employees are injured, they file a claim with the insurance company, who then negotiates with the workers’ attorneys to determine the settlement grounds. Even if your employer recognizes that your injury was an accident and states that they want to make sure you are compensated fairly, it is important to remember that you will not be negotiating with your employer directly. You will be working with the insurance company, and the company’s goal is to minimize your Texas workers’ comp settlement.
There are many types of benefits that a worker can get from an insurance company. The first type of benefit is compensation for medical care. The insurance company will handle the cost of doctor’s appointments, surgeries, and physical therapy if the treatment is related to your injury. Another type of benefit is a payment for time lost from work. There are also additional benefits if a worker is killed or permanently disabled. While this may seem cut-and-dry, the insurance company will try to argue that your treatment is unrelated to your injury, that you can return to work when you truly cannot, or that your injury was not caused by your job duties. You need a dedicated and experienced Houston workers’ comp attorney to stand up for you against the insurance company and get you the maximum Texas workers’ comp payments for your injuries.
Workers’ comp injuries come in many different forms. They can be anything from broken bones to lacerations to blindness to cancer. Some of the most common injuries to workers are back injuries, knee injuries, and shoulder injuries. These types of injuries happen when a worker is engaged in physical labor, and although they are usually treatable injuries, they can permanently affect a worker’s capacity to earn a living in the future. Some of the most dangerous and even fatal types of injuries include fall injuries, head injuries, and cancer like mesothelioma from exposure to toxic substances. Whether your injury was temporary or permanent, you still deserve a fair amount of workers’ compensation payments to compensate you for your medical care and lost wages. If you have been hurt on the job in any capacity, a Houston worker compensation lawyer that can help you with your claim.
If you have been injured in a work accident and you would like to know more about Texas worker compensation law, call RJ Alexander Law PLLC firm to hire a Houston worker compensation lawyer.
