Getting injured in an automobile accident is no small affair. Depending
on the severity of your injuries, you could be up against a lifetime of
pain and suffering. Indeed, many Austin residents who have
traumatic brain injuries,
spinal injuries or multiple broken bones from car accidents may find it impossible to
walk, earn a living or complete other daily tasks without special assistance.
As you can imagine, the long term costs of such injuries relating to lost
income, lost wages, lost opportunity, lost quality of life, medical bills,
in-home assistance and other damages are significant.
A personal injury lawsuit to recoup car accident damages, no matter what
the circumstances, usually boils down to negligence. Determining who was
negligent, and therefore, liable in a crash is always the first order
of business -- outside making sure that all victims have received appropriate
medical care. Usually, police reports and police investigations can help
in determining if another driver's negligence and/or unlawful behavior
are to blame for a particular accident. However, in cases that involve
automobile manufacturer or automobile part manufacturer negligence, police
might not identify exactly what was to blame for the crash.
This is why, at the Stewart Law Firm, PLLC, we look at all possible angles
that could have caused an accident and its resulting injuries or death.
We look for issues like defective child car seats, SUV rollovers, unsafe
vehicle roof designs, unsafe vehicle seats, defective fuel systems, defective
ignition devices, the overall crashworthiness of a vehicle's design,
unsafe tires and other problems and defects that can serve to cause an
accident or worsen the injuries associated with an accident.
The Stewart Law Firm, PLLC has helped numerous individuals in the Austin
area recover financial compensation to pay for the costs relating to their serious
