Car Accidents

Car accidents alter your life from what your normal was. No matter how big or small that incident may have been, we empathize that things are never quite the same. It can feel unmanageable to oversee your body’s recovery, fight with the insurance company, and try your best to do everything you already did before. That’s where The Kroon Law Firm comes in. When you hire The Kroon Law Firm we provide you a concierge service that covers everything from A-Z of your personal injury case. This enables you to solely focus on recovering, recuperating, and healing, as it should be. We have mastered the process of car accidents, so allow us to handle all the paperwork, interactions with insurance companies, and most importantly winning your rightful settlement.

Drunk Driving Accidents

It is never acceptable to get behind the wheel and drive while intoxicated. Unfortunately, people make the wrong choice far too often and think they’re okay to drive when they’re not. The State of Texas has a zero-tolerance policy for drunk drivers and anyone of the legal drinking age can and will be charged with a DWI if caught. The choice to drink and drive can ultimately have unrectifiable consequences of death and serious injury for the victims involved. The Kroon Law Firm has seen firsthand through our valued clients how awful these DWI car accidents can be. Our team will advocate for you every step of the way because we use our empathy and expert experience as a driving force to achieve a winning settlement.

Motorcycle Accidents

There could be a number of reasons that caused you to have a motorcycle accident. There could have been a negligent driver who rammed themselves into you, an unsafe roadway with a massive pothole that sent you flying off your bike or a defective motorcycle part that caused you to crash. None of these instances are okay, which is why you need The Kroon Law Firm to advocate for you.

Motorcycle Accident Insurance Claims

Since what can happen to you when involved in a motorcycle accident is highly variable, that means you may end up having more than one single party involved. Whether it’s one or more parties, we are ready to expertly handle your case. No motorcycle accident is the same, but most insurance company reactions are. They quickly want to place the blame on you simply for being the motorcyclist and this is why you need The Kroon Law Firm. By choosing us, you choose a winning standard that gives you the power and leverage to go up against at-fault parties and insurance companies in order to receive full compensation for your injuries. This is especially true because the State of Texas gives the authority to insurance companies and the courts to divvy up percentages of fault between the parties involved, which is called modified comparative negligence. With The Kroon Law Firm by your side, your chances dramatically increase in your favor at receiving the settlement you deserve.

Commerical Truck Accidents

There’s nothing minor when it comes to commercial truck accidents and chances are you’ve been seriously injured. If you’ve had the unfortunate experience of being struck by a semi truck, 18-wheeler, tractor-trailer or any other commercial vehicle, then you need the winning advocacy from The Kroon Law Firm. The Lonestar state is one of the biggest hubs for trucking and has five of the biggest names in the industry which are:

  • • Swift Transportation
  • • JB Hunt Transportation Services, Inc.
  • • A Truck Express, Inc.
  • • Central Freight Lines, Inc.

If you happen to cross paths with Texas’ well-known trucking corporations, you will need assistance from The Kroon Law Firm who has ample experience handling such claims. These commercial trucking corporations have faced lawsuits and insurance claims before and their goal is to minimize victims’ recoveries and look out for their best interest. This isn’t their first rodeo, but it isn't ours either. We’ll provide your truck accident claim the winning advocacy it deserves!

Types of Accidents Involving a Semi Truck/Tractor Trailer

Since these trucks are built and designed in specific ways in order to withstand their hauls, that also means that there are specific accidents types as well. These accidents are:

  • • Jackknife
  • • Wide Turn Crash
  • • Lost Loads
  • • Rollover
  • • Tire Blowouts
  • • Blind Spot Accidents

More often than not the truck driver bears the weight of responsibility to prevent serious collisions as they’ve been taught proven driving techniques and proper judgment, but accidents happen when negligence abounds.

Wrongful Death

One of the worst experiences someone can go through is losing a loved one and it’s even more when it unjustly occurs. One of the most awful personal injury claims someone can make is wrongful death. This means that your loved one has died because of someone else’s negligence, legally called wrongful death. If your family member has died due to another person’s unintentional or intentional negligence, the Texas wrongful death attorney at The Kroon Law Firm, can help you win the compensation you deserve.

Who Can File A Wrongful Death Claim?

Allow us to give you some quick insight into this complicated branch of law. In the State of Texas, these surviving family members can file a wrongful death claim: surviving spouse, children, and parents. Any of these parties can either file individually or as a group. Now, pay attention to this important caveat: if the surviving spouse, children, or parents do not file a wrongful death claim within three months of the loved one’s death, the person who represents the deceased’s estate may file. There is an instance when the estate representative could not file, which is if the surviving spouse, children, or parents specifically request that the representative does not pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.

Adopted Children Rights Within Wrongful Death

The State of Texas has also taken adopted children into consideration. As long as the parents had legally adopted him or her, an adopted child has the same right to file as a biological child. But if another family legally adopted him or her, the adopted child cannot file a claim for a biological parent. When it comes to adopted siblings and biological siblings, the State of Texas does not allow siblings to file for the wrongful death of a brother or sister.

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians and drivers share the road and surrounding areas together. Unfortunately, drivers make the all too common mistakes of distracted driving and ignoring the rules of the road, which then jeopardize the safety of pedestrians and put them at risk. The simplest of acts, such as crossing the street, can cause the most devastating injuries for our Texan pedestrians.We’ve handled numerous pedestrian personal injury claims and have a thorough understanding of how awful the implications are by being involved in this type of accident. There are many variables to consider in these kinds of accidents, including: traffic signals, stop signs, yield signs, right-of-way issues and more. But these variables don’t have to be something you worry about by hiring The Kroon Law Firm. You can count on us to handle every aspect of your claim and win maximum compensation, which ensures your main focus can be on healing.

Hit & Run Accidents

At times we can’t count on negligent wrong-doers to do the right thing which leads to them committing a hit and run. Most likely you’re left in a state of shock not understanding what just happened to you. But through law enforcement investigation we can figure out who caused you harm and even if the river identity isn’t identified there is still recourse to achieve recovery on your claim. The Kroon Law Firm will handle making a claim under your own insurance policy’s Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UIM) coverage which covers you in situations like these.

Oil Field Injuries

Our team is vastly experienced and familiar with how tough and dangerous oil refinery jobs can be. Suffering from a burn injury from a fire or explosion at the oil refinery is absolutely devastating to you and your family, but The Kroon Law Firm can valiantly advocate for you and your injuries. We expertly handle claims involving all injuries caused by refinery explosions because more often than not, negligence is involved with oil field injuries. Negligence at an oil refinery could be: faulty equipment, poor safety protocols, negligent subcontractors, and other forms of third party negligence.

Oil Field Injuries are a Type of Workplace Injury

Oil refinery injuries are a type of workplace injury, which means you may or may not have a workers’ compensation package. If you do, we do not handle workers’ compensation claims. But there are other ways to file a personal injury claim, which is if you’ve sustained an injury by a third party and through filing a civil lawsuit. By giving us a call or text for your free consultation our knowledgeable team will help you determine if you have a personal injury claim. At The Kroon Law Firm we are here to serve.

Nursing Home Abuse

When your loved one becomes too elderly or ill you place your trust with medical and healthcare facilities and professionals in hopes of top quality of care. Unfortunately, elderly care facilities are not created equal and your loved ones could be at risk of suffering abuse, neglect, or personal injury. The top way you can best protect your loved one is by personally visiting their facility and having a clear understanding of the behaviors that constitute abuse and neglect under Texas law. Neglect can fall under the categories of neglect of basic needs and medical neglect. This neglect could present itself as inadequate or lack of nutrition, hygiene, hydration, failing to address medical needs and more.

Signs of neglect can include, but are not limited to:

  • • Bed sores
  • • Dehydration
  • • Dirty and unsafe living conditions

Medical Malpractice

We put an immense amount of trust into our healthcare providers, but ultimately mistakes do take place and devastating errors can bring injury to patients. Medical malpractice is broad, but remember you must have been injured due to human error, negligence, or malicious intent. Medical malpractice isn’t a forum to pursue customer service grievances or long wait times at an emergency room. One question you should ask yourself is: have I been injured due to negligence caused by a healthcare professional? If the answer is yes, give us a call or text so that we can give you a free consultation and hear about your medical malpractice claim. Time is of the essence when filing medical malpractice claims in Texas, as the victim/plaintiff you are required to give a 60-day notice to the healthcare provider named in the personal injury claim.The burden of proof with medical malpractice claims falls to the patient. There needs to be evidence of violated standards of care, which led to your injury as the patient under their care. Establishing negligence is a complicated, thorough, and lengthy process that involves reviewing your situation and interviewing expert witnesses and other parties.

Examples of Medical Malpractice Claims

To further aid in guiding you in what medical malpractice is, we’ve provided some examples:

  • • Surgeon operates on the wrong patient
  • • Doctor fails to diagnose a medical condition
  • • Doctor misdiagnoses a medical condition
  • • Nurse improperly administers medication
  • • Patient is prescribed medication they are allergic to
  • • Patient develops bedsores due to not being repositioned
  • • Birth injuries

This is certainly not an exhaustive list, but one provided for quick reference when questioning your situation and if it qualifies.

Workplace Injuries

In the State of Texas, a lawsuit cannot be brought against your employer if they provide you with workers’ compensation coverage. But, there are three exceptions to this rule:

  • 1. Your employer does not carry workers' compensation coverage
  • 2. Your injury was caused by a third party
  • 3. The employer was guilty of gross neglect in the case of a fatality

More Information on Workplace Injuries

Due to this Texas law, The Kroon Law Firm’s majority of workplace injury cases fall in line with those who do not have workers’ compensation coverage. However, one of the successful work-arounds we have experienced is establishing a third party personal injury lawsuit. Third parties fall around the categories of: product manufacturer, negligent coworker, distracted motorist, among others. In this situation, you’ll still be able to file your workers’ compensation claim as well. Bear in mind that workers’ compensation does not provide any benefits for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering. While eligible third party personal injury claims provide both economic and non-economic damage financial recovery.

Slips and Falls

The main premise that validates a slip and fall claim is that the property owner must be proven to have been negligent. This means you and/or your attorney have the burden of proof. In the State of Texas, the second premise that validates a slip and fall claim is that the owner of the property owed you duty of care, breached this duty and therefore is responsible for your slip and fall accident. Ultimately, there are three items that need to be met legally for a slip and fall claim in Texas:

  • 1. You had the lawful right to be on the property
  • 2. The owner was negligent
  • 3. Owner’s negligence caused your slip or fall

If your Texas slip and fall claim meets these requirements give The Kroon Law Firm a call or text and we’ll advocate for your much deserved personal injury recovery!

Who Can & Cannot Make a Slip & Fall Claim

Under Texas law, there are three different distinctions for the type of visitor under premises liability law:

  • 1. Invitee: Has permission by the property owner to be on the premise and your purpose on the property is for the owner such as entering an establishment as a customer
  • 2. Licensee: Has permission to be on the property by not by invasion of the owner, think of solicitors and salespeople.
  • 3. Trespasser: Does not have permission to be on the property and therefore is not owed duties of care. To recap, invitee and licensee are examples of distinctions that are legally eligible for financial recovery in a slip and fall claim and trespasser is not. The only loophole is if the trespasser was under the age of 18 at the time of the incident

Uber / Lyft Accidents

Injured in a Uber or Lyft in Texas?

Have you sustained a serious injury after being involved in an accident while in an Uber or Lyft? At some point in your life, you’ve most likely taken an Uber or Lyft to the airport, after a night out, or just simply out of convenience. Unfortunately, accidents do happen, but it can feel scary when it happens in a situation you didn’t plan for, like being in an Uber or Lyft.

What You Need to Know When in an Uber/Lyft Accident in Texas

Uber and Lyft hire their rideshare drivers as independent contractors (instead of employees), which means the drivers own and insure their own personal vehicles. In the State of Texas our law requires Uber, Lyft and any other rideshare drivers to carry liability insurance policies. A key point to know is that Uber and Lyft also provide liability insurance to its drivers, including uninsured/underinsured coverage (UM). How does that benefit you? Well, this means that if you are involved in a Uber or Lyft accident as a passenger, and the other vehicle/driver involved is uninsured or underinsured, then you would still be eligible for compensation from Uber or Lyft’s UM insurance. When you’re involving a billion dollar company’s like Uber and Lyft things are bound to get complicated and intimidating. It’s so crucial to your personal injury claim to have a skillful and experienced rideshare accident attorney here at The Kroon Law Firm.

Dog Bites & Attacks

Regardless of how someone views dogs, they are considered animals, even if your furry pal is part of your family. Animals, and dogs specifically, may have unexplainable, adverse reactions and end up biting or attacking someone. Whether it's considered a good dog or bad dog, the dog can still bite you. The could be experiencing feelings of excitement, anxiety, and fear to name a few. In some situations, the dog that bit you could be a dog that has never bit anyone else and has never shown signs of aggression. If that is the case, then that particular dog falls under the Texas One Bite Rule. This essentially means that the owner of the dog is given the benefit of the doubt and a dog bite claim cannot be pursued.

The Texas One Bite Rule

When a dog bites someone the Texas’ “One Bite Rule” comes into play. If one or multiple people are attacked or bitten they have the right to recover compensation if the dog has displayed aggressive behavior in the past or bitten another person. For your dog bite to be eligible for a personal injury claim in Texas then the following conditions must be met to receive financial recovery:

  • • Prove the dog’s owner knew or should have known that the dog had bitten someone in the past
  • • Prove the dog’s owner knew or should have known that the dog had acted aggressively towards another person in the past
  • • Prove the dog’s owner was negligent in preventing the bite and controlling the dog
  • • Prove this negligence directly caused your injuries as the victim

These conditions are the burden proof that fall on the shoulders of the victim/plaintiff. None of these conditions are met unless they happened to another person besides yourself.If you or someone you know has been bitten by a dog, please call or text The Kroon Law Firm to receive your free consultation!
