Transportation Passenger Accidents
Working tirelessly on behalf of those injured in boating and airplane accidents
In Texas, transportation accidents may happen when you least expect. You may sustain serious injuries after slipping and falling while getting on a bus, entering a taxi or using San Antonio's VIA Metropolitan Transit system. Sometimes, a guest aboard an airplane or a boat may be injured due to the negligence of the operator or crew aboard, resulting in a serious and potentially fatal airplane or boating accident in the San Antonio area.
All modes of commercial transportation - whether train, bus, airplane or boat - face governmental oversight and regulation. Additionally, the respective industries have their own safety protocols that individual transportation carriers are required to follow. We recognize that each case is unique. We are ready to hear your side of the story. The experienced personal injury legal team at The Herrera Law Firm is ready to listen to you describe your experience. We can explain the law and your options.
You deserve representation after a transportation accident
Don't hesitate to seek qualified legal assistance. The statute of limitations restricts the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit and may prevent you from obtaining justice. While the statute of limitations allows more time for minor victims to file claims in court, it's important to seek legal representation sooner rather than later while witnesses' memories are fresh and evidence remains intact.
If you or a loved one were involved in a transportation accident, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, lost income earning potential, lost quality of life and pain and suffering. An attorney may be able to provide the experienced legal help you deserve.
In Texas, we have heard or read about the trauma of airplane accidents that result in multiple deaths. Small accidents, however, happen more often and can result in catastrophic injuries, or even injuries leading to wrongful deaths.
When a small airplane stops suddenly, lands or takes off roughly, or strikes an object on the ground, passengers may end up with broken bones and other injuries similar to a rear-end collision or other automobile accidents.
If you have been injured aboard an airplane, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, lost income earning potential, lost quality of life and pain and suffering. At The Herrera Law Firm in Texas, we want to hear about your experience. Our transportation passenger accident attorneys can explain the law and your options.
How our firm determines negligence in an airplane accident
Our knowledgeable attorneys can pore over records and details of your case to determine negligence. Airfields must meet regulations for appropriate maintenance, and pilots must meet certain standards of conduct to avoid professional negligence as a cause of an airplane accident.
Just as an entryway to a building is frequently the site of slip and fall accidents, the gangways and docks leading to a boat are often the site of boat passenger injuries. A number of premises liability concerns exist if there is inadequate lighting, or faulty railings, among other potential hazards at popular destinations in and around San Antonio such as Calaveras Lake, Victor Braunig Lake and Medina Lake.
Boat accidents happen in part because people underestimate certain dangers or may irresponsibly operate a boat. Rivers, lakes and other bodies of water in Texas are often congested with boats, jet skis and other watercraft. Injuries can occur on a ferry, or ship. With so much traffic on the water, accidents can and will happen through negligence. For example, as with drunk drivers on the roads, an impaired operator of a boat may be liable for injuries in accidents.
If your loved one died in a boating accident, the survivors can file a wrongful death lawsuit. Our firm can help ensure you get the justice you deserve.
