Personal Injury

If you have been injured due to another person’s negligence, you may pursue a personal injury lawsuit. A personal injury lawsuit arises when a person is injured in an incident that was caused by the negligent, reckless, or intentional conduct of another party. Although many personal injury claims are resolved through settlement negotiations with insurance companies, insurers routinely deny claims or seek to settle them for as little money as possible. In fact, insurance companies are notorious for trying to lowball accident victims. Therefore, when pursuing compensation after your injury, legal representation is often necessary to ensure that you obtain the financial compensation you deserve. Milano Legal Group is a full-service personal injury law firm in Texas that handles a broad spectrum of personal injury cases, including:

If your personal injury lawsuit is successful, you may be entitled to several types of damages to compensate you for your injuries. With Milano Legal Group on your side, our top-rated personal injury attorneys will pursue damages on your behalf, which may include financial compensation for:

  • Medical bills and health care expenses

  • Disfigurement and/or scarring
  • Reduced quality of life

Bicycle Accidents

Bicycles are a fun recreational activity and popular alternative to motor vehicles, public transportation, and walking. In addition to being convenient and fun, riding a bike is a healthy form of exercise. Unfortunately, riding a bike can also be dangerous, especially for bicyclists who share the road with traffic. When the drivers of motor vehicles are negligent or careless, bicyclists run the risk of being injured in a crash. Common driver behaviors that lead to bicycle accidents include:

  • Driving while impaired or intoxicated 
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Running red lights or stop signs 
  • Speeding
  • Changing lanes or turning without double-checking for bicyclists first

  • Driving while distracted 
  • Violating posted signs or traffic rules 

If you have been hurt in a bicycle crash in Texas, the Houston bicycle accident lawyers at Milano Legal Group are here to help you file a claim, and we will fight hard to ensure that you obtain full and fair compensation for your Houston bicycle accident injuries.

Distracted Driving Accidents

Distracted driving is a major cause of car accidents. In fact, with the rise in popularity of smartphones and other electronic devices, distracted driving is a bigger problem than ever. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 

estimates that over 350,000 people are injured in distracted driving crashes in the United States every year. And just likeother types of auto accidents, accidents caused by distracted driving often have serious consequences. If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident with a distracted driver, you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

At Milano Legal Group, our Houston car accident lawyers are committed to representing the victims of accidents caused by distracted drivers. When you come to us for assistance following your distracted driving accident, we will work tirelessly to protect your rights and to make the personal injury claims process as easy for you and your family as possible. 

Drunk Driving Accidents

Drunk and impaired driving remains a serious public safety issue in Texas and across the United States. In fact, drunk driving kills approximately 10,000 people every year nationwide. And of those victims who survive, many suffer catastrophic, life-changing injuries. The victims of drunk driving accidents deserve accountability, justice, and full compensation for their injuries.

In Texas, the maximum allowable blood alcohol concentration is 0.08. Whenever a person operates a motor vehicle while above this limit, they break the law. However, those who operate a motor vehicle while close to this limit can also face liability for impaired driving accidents. In other words, drivers who are “buzzed,” are under the influence of drugs, or who are otherwise impaired can be held accountable for their actions by injury victims and their attorneys. 

At Milano Legal Group, we understand what it takes to hold drunk and impaired drivers accountable for the injuries they cause to other drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. If you have been injured by a drunk or impaired driver, our car accident lawyers are here to make the personal injury claims process as easy and painless as possible for you and your family. When you come to us for help following your accident, we will do everything in our power to hold the drunk or impaired driver accountable for the pain they have caused you and your family. 

Car Accidents

rear end car accidentHouston is a great place to live. Unfortunately, Houston highways and roads are among the most dangerous in the United States. In fact, studies have found that Houston is the deadliest major metropolitan area in the country for drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. In other words, your odds of being involved in a car accident in Houston are much higher than in other cities across the country. If you have been injured in a car accident in Houston or elsewhere in Texas, our personal injury attorneys can help you recover financial compensation for your car accident injuries. Common types of car accidents we handle include: 

 

Rear-end accidents

Rear-end accidents often occur when a driver follows too closely behind another vehicle. If the lead car must brake quickly, the trailing car lacks sufficient time to stop, resulting in a rear-end crash. In this type of situation, liability is usually clear. Less clear are rear-end accident cases involving quick lane changes and unexpected braking. Regardless of the type of rear-end accident, legal representation is often necessary to ensure that the injured party is sufficiently compensated for their accident-related injuries.

Head-on collision accidents

Head-on collisions are some of the most devastating types of auto accidents, and they can result in catastrophic injuries to drivers and passengers alike. The reason these accidents are so serious is that they occur when two vehicles are traveling in opposite directions, thereby doubling the force of the impact when the two vehicles collide. Liability in head-on collisions can be difficult to prove, meaning that legal representation is an absolute must in these types of legal actions. 

Hit-and-run accidents

Of the several kinds of accidents involving drivers and pedestrians, hit-and-run accidents tend to be some of the most devastating—and frustrating—cases to pursue in court. In these types of cases, how much and from whom an injury victim can recover depends on the following factors: 

  • Whether the at-fault driver struck a parked vehicle
  • Whether the at-fault driver hit another vehicle
  • Whether the at-fault driver struck a pedestrian or cyclist

T-bone accidents

T-bone accidents often occur when one driver runs a red light and causes another vehicle to strike its side. However, there are multiple other ways in which such accidents may occur. The injuries that result from T-bone accidents tend to be severe, and they include neck, head, and limb injuries. Liability in such accidents can be straightforward if there are witnesses present or footage available. However, liability in these types of cases can also be difficult to prove, so legal representation is often necessary to ensure that victims obtain financial compensation for their injuries. 

Left-turn accidents

A left-turn accident happens when a vehicle attempts to make a left-hand turn and a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction collides with it. Left-turn accidents can result in serious injuries. Often, the vehicle making the left-hand turn carries the most liability, but this is not always the case. For example, if a vehicle traveling straight runs a red light or is speeding at the time of a collision with a vehicle making a left turn, that driver may carry some or most of the liability.

Motorcycle Accidents

Riding a motorcycle can be a great alternative to driving a car or truck. In addition, motorcycle riding is a fun hobby enjoyed by people all over the world. Unfortunately, operating a motorcycle can be incredibly dangerous. In fact, hundreds of motorcycle riders die each year in Texas. At Milano Legal Group, our Houston motorcycle accident lawyers  believe that motorcycle accidents should rarely occur, and when they do, injured motorcyclists deserve compensation for the damages that they suffer. If you have been injured in a motorcycle crash in Houston, we are here to help. Common types of Texas motorcycle accidents include: 

 

Rear-end accidents

When a motorcyclist is hit from behind by another vehicle, the biker often suffers serious injuries. Sometimes, rear-end accidents involving motorcycles result in the motorcyclist becoming wedged between two vehicles, resulting in severe injuries or even death.

Left-turn accidents

A left-turn accident can occur when a vehicle makes a left turn in front of an oncoming motorcycle operator. Another common type of left-turn accident occurs when a motorcyclist makes a left-hand turn and is hit by a vehicle that is traveling straight through the intersection. Regardless of how a left-turn accident occurs, the motorcyclist involved often suffers major injuries. 

Lane-changing and merging accidents

These types of motorcycle accidents occur when a vehicle attempts to change lanes and strikes a motorcyclist in the process. Due to their size, motorcycles are difficult to see and can be easily lost in a driver’s blind spot.

Pedestrian Accidents

People who choose to walk to get where they are going do not expect to be hurt along the way. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents are common in Texas, and they often leave people with serious injuries and stacks of expensive medical bills. In fact, according to data from the Texas Department of Transportation, annual pedestrian accident deaths sometimes outnumber motorcycle crash deaths. In other words, pedestrian accidents are a fact of life in Texas, and they are often caused by the negligence of drivers. As opposed to drivers and passengers of motor vehicles, pedestrians have no protection when they are struck by a car, truck, or other type of vehicle. Therefore, when a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle, the results tend to be catastrophic. At the offices of Milano Legal Group, we are aware of the consequences of pedestrian accidents. If you have been injured in a pedestrian crash, you should contact us as soon as possible for assistance. 

Truck Accidents

semi truck on the road with carsLarge trucks are a common sight throughout the state of Texas, especially on the state’s highways. Although semi-trucks are a necessary part of conducting business, they also pose serious risks to other drivers on the road. Semi-trucks are large and powerful vehicles. In fact, they often weigh up to 20 times more than passenger vehicles. Therefore, when a commercial truck is involved in an accident with a smaller vehicle, the results are often catastrophic. Small motor vehicles simply cannot withstand the force and power of a semi-truck in a motor vehicle accident. This great size and power disparity often results in severe injuries, life-long pain and suffering, and even death.

At Milano Legal Group, our personal injury team understands the importance of the trucking industry. However, we also have firsthand knowledge of the devastation caused by semi-truck accidents. Therefore, if you or a loved one have been involved in a truck accident, our Houston truck accident lawyers are here to help you understand your options and rights. When you come to us for assistance following your truck accident, we will do everything in our power to ensure that you obtain proper compensation for your injuries. 

Wrongful Death 

Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things anyone ever must go through. Even worse, however, is losing a loved one to a preventable accident. Although no amount of money can ever make up for the pain caused by a loved one’s death, financial compensation for the damages caused by the event can provide a sense of closure and justice to family members of the deceased. By filing a wrongful death lawsuit, the family members of a person who was killed due to someone else’s negligent behavior may seek compensation from the responsible party. However, wrongful death claims are extremely complicated. Therefore, anyone seeking to file such a claim should only do so with professional legal representation. 

At Milano Legal Group, our Houston wrongful death lawyers are committed and compassionate advocates for individuals and families in Texas. When you come to us for assistance with your wrongful death claim, our experienced attorneys will work hard to hold the other party accountable for your loved one’s death. Our expert Houston wrongful death lawyers handle all types of wrongful death claims, including:
