How We Can Help

Car Accidents

Texas’ road safety record is not an enviable one. In Texas, one life is lost to a car accident every 2 hours and 26 minutes, and one car crash occurs every 56 seconds. Sadly, 3,610 people died in car accidents in Texas in 2019, with nearly another 16,000 facing serious injuries. If you’ve been involved in a car accident in Texas, our seasoned Houston car accident lawyers can help you get back on your feet.

In the sprawling state of Texas, vehicles are essential to our way of life, giving us freedom, mobility, and economic choices. For most Texans, life without a car or truck is unimaginable – but driving on our state’s highways comes with many risks. Regardless of how careful you are, there is little you can do to avoid negligent and careless drivers on the road. Despite our best efforts, it is likely that all of us will be involved in a car accident at some point in our lives, and a serious accident can turn your life upside down. The good news is, Chris and Keith are here to help you turn things right again.

Truck Accidents

Commercial vehicles, including 18-wheelers and semi-trucks, cause some of the most devastating collisions on our nation’s roads. There are many factors that can lead to these accidents, from drivers who are overworked or undertrained to carrier companies that fail to properly maintain their trucks. No matter who’s to blame, our Houston truck accident attorneys have consistently secured excellent recoveries for our clients through aggressive and careful legal representation.

A collision between an 18-wheeler and a passenger vehicle or another truck is likely to cause serious injuries or death. Each year in the U.S., there are more than 400,000 accidents involving large trucks, including commercial box trucks, flat-bed trucks, and tractor-trailer trucks.

Personal Injury

Unfortunately, from the medications that you take to your daily work commute, there are countless risks that you come across. Despite our best efforts, the negligence or risky behavior of others can’t always be avoided or foreseen.

Any type of personal injury can lead to serious injuries and mental anguish that can leave you and your loved ones with mounting medical bills and life-long debt. If another party caused your injuries, they may be responsible for paying for your treatment, lost wages, and other damages.

Offshore Injuries

Maritime injury laws are different for seamen, including those who work as part of a crew or serve as the captain of a vessel, as well as anyone else who works on or near the water. Unlike with traditional workers’ compensation, there is no administrative body to handle your maritime injury claim if you are a seaman. All maritime injury claims must be filed in state or federal court. A lawsuit may be the only way to reserve your right to injury compensation as a seaman. In many ways, maritime injury claims can provide more compensation than traditional workers’ compensation claims.

Seamen are entitled to sue employers and owners of vessels for damages and receive “maintenance and cure” regardless of liability. Only a seasoned Gulf Coast maritime lawyer can help you through the legal and procedural complexities you will face when seeking compensation.

Oilfield Injuries

Given the number of oil fields in Texas, it should come as no surprise that oil field injury lawsuits are also common in the state. If you’ve been injured in an oil field accident, or if your loved one’s life has been tragically cut short due to their work in the drilling industry, don’t settle for anything less than what you deserve. Reach out to the experienced oil field accident attorneys of Lapeze & Johns, PLLC, for hardworking lawyers who will help you bring those at fault to justice.

Oil field accidents in Texas can happen not only to workers in the industry, but also others who are exposed to dangerous activities onsite, or even those who are visiting. Injuries and deaths can occur in the oil and gas industry in all stages of exploration, drilling, production, transportation, and continued well servicing of existing producing wells.

Industrial Injuries

As recent news stories have demonstrated, working at a refinery or other industrial facility can be dangerous. We have helped hundreds of individuals and families whose lives were impacted by an industrial injury. These injuries have been caused by the plant owner’s unsafe operations, by the negligence of contractors, or by defective machinery or equipment at the plant. Our Houston industrial injury attorneys have successfully represented industrial workers throughout the state, and our results in this area speak for themselves.

Industrial Accidents

Construction Accidents

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that there were 2.8 million nonfatal workplace injuries in 2019. Of all industries, construction injuries ranked as the fifth most common type of workplace injury in the country. Construction accidents can generally be divided into categories known as the “Fatal Four.” From most to least common, the primary causes of construction accidents are: slip-and-falls, being hit by an object, electrocution, and becoming lodged or crushed in between two objects.

OSHA works to increase workplace safety every year, but injury and illness rates in the workplace have remained steady over recent years. There are still many ways individuals in a hazardous industry like construction may be injured or killed. Our skilled Houston construction accident attorneys are here to help you get the compensation you need to get back on your feet as quickly as possible.

Burn Injuries

Victims of burn injuries are often affected in life-altering ways. Scars and chronic pain can affect not only a survivor’s ability to work, but also their relationships with friends and loved ones, as well as their physical appearance. Burns also often require extensive recovery and rehabilitation.

If you’ve faced the devastating effects of a burn injury caused by the negligence of another party, you may be eligible for compensation for treatment, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Call the personal injury attorneys of Lapeze & Johns, PLLC, today. We’ll be by your side every step of the way.

Children’s Injuries

Watching kids rough-house and run around, it seems their ability to bounce back from tumbles is beaten only by their ability to get themselves hurt. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 9.2 million children visit emergency rooms annually for non-fatal unintentional injuries.

Kids not only choose activities that tend to lead to injuries — climbing, running, jumping, throwing, catching, bicycling, swimming, and hurtling into each other — they also tend to lack some of the knowledge and judgment we use to keep from getting hurt. Kids also rely on adults to protect them from harm at school, daycare, and similar environments. If your child has been injured due to someone’s negligence, the compassionate personal injury attorneys of Lapeze & Johns, PLLC, can help you seek justice.

Dangerous Products

Product liability is an area of the law that affects countless Americans every year. In fact, the practice area is so large that some attorneys dedicate their entire practice to product liability. The fact that businesses are always working towards the goal of making money means that some products are sold with unsafe components. These unsafe components can sometimes lead to recalls, a fundamental part of many product liability cases. Recalls are meant to ensure public safety, and many are the result of injury reports or parental complaints to the Consumer Safety Product Commission. If you’ve been injured due to a dangerous product, our Houston product liability lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve.
