Fires & Electrical:
Loya & Associates is dedicated to protecting the interest of individuals injured in fires, explosions, and electrocutions. Fires and explosions are not uncommon on Texas refinery sites or on oil and gas rigs. Many individuals have suffered serious personal injuries as a result of fires, explosions, and electrocutions in a number of other industrial settings. These injuries can be life altering and even result in a wrongful death case. Defectively designed equipment, improperly maintained machinery, and combustible materials that are improperly stored or used cause many of these injuries.

From industrial factories to construction sites, the workplace has long been responsible for too many preventable injuries. OSHA has certain guidelines and rules that govern the workplace. However, you may have been injured by negligence that does not violate OSHA guidelines or it may be that OSHA does not have the time or resources to thoroughly investigate your case. Our firm has an outstanding reputation for finding and pursuing gross negligence and third-party claims. We are experts in coordinating these claims and Workers’ Compensation benefits to get the best result possible for our clients and their families.
1. Non-Subscriber: where the employer fails to carry Workers Compensation insurance coverage and an employee is injured or killed due to the employers negligence or the negligence of a fellow employee, the injured employee can recover directly from his employer. Employers who do not carry workers’ compensation waive many of their legal defenses.
2. Wrongful Death: In Texas, if an employee is killed while on the job due to the negligence of the employer or a fellow employee, the employees family may make a claim against the employer even if an employer carries Workers Compensation insurance. The employer or fellow employee must be guilty of gross negligence or more than ordinary negligence. Every on-the-job death should be thoroughly evaluated to determine if a claim for gross negligence exists.
3. Third-Party Negligence: where an employee has sustained an on-the-job injury caused by someone other than the employer or a fellow employee, the injured employee may make a claim against the other person (third party). Third-party cases may fall into categories such as traffic accidents, defective products, defective equipment, or the exposure to toxic substances, but all have in common the occurrence of the injury while on the job. Every on-the-job injury should be evaluated to determine if a third-party claim exists.
Medical Malpractice & Nursing Home Claims:
Loya & Associates represents individuals or the families of those injured or killed as a result of negligence committed by physicians, hospitals, nursing homes or other healthcare providers such as nurses, therapists, chiropractors, or clinics. Medical negligence cases are complex and involve the integration of law, medicine, and science. We utilize a network of resources, including a nurse consultant and expert physicians, in order to prepare, litigate and argue the most compelling case on behalf of our clients. Unfortunately, due to the nature of these cases and legal limitations on the damages that a jury may reward, we are only able to accept medical malpractices cases if the liability facts are particularly strong and the damages involve either death or permanent and devastating injury which includes significant economic damages, including medical bills and lost wages.

• Nursing Home Claims

Texas Truck Accidents: Truck Accident Lawyer for Dallas
Dallas truck accidents cause serious personal injuries on a daily basis. Catastrophic personal injury can result from semi truck accidents as well. Or, even worse, truck accidents could result in wrongful death. Truck accident cases differ from standard car accident cases in that there are often many complicated legal issues surrounding truck accidents. It’s critical to work with a good Houston truck accident lawyer in your accident case, since truck accident cases can involve corporate interests and even federal regulations.
Houston Truck Accidents and Truck Accident Numbers
Statisticians have found that truck accidents are 50% more probable to result in someone’s death than standard car accidents. When taking into consideration the size of the typical trucking industry vehicle roughly 10,000 pounds it’s no wonder why they are involved in so many personal injury and wrongful death cases.
The Dangers of Dallas Truck Accidents
5,000 Americans are killed every year in truck accidents, while over 150,000 serious personal, burn and brain injuries are sustained in truck accidents. 438 truck accidents the most in the country occurred in Texas in 2003. Truck accidents are undoubtedly extremely dangerous.
Why Are Truck Accidents More Hazardous Than Ordinary Car Accidents?
A semi truck can weigh over five metric tons. A semi weighing five times as much as a passenger car can cause severe damage. With a full load, trucks can be moving with an enormous amount of momentum.
Because the weight and height disparity between passenger cars and trucks or 18-wheelers, truck drivers often are able to walk away from the scene of an auto accident without having been harmed. Meanwhile, the driver or passengers in the other vehicle may have incurred serious personal injury or even wrongful death. If you’ve been hurt in a truck accident, it is very important that you seek out a quality Dallas truck accident lawyer who can help you get your rightful compensation for your personal injuries.
Are Truck Accident Cases More Tricky Than Car Wreck Cases?
Truck accident cases have additional causes and regulations that ordinary car wrecks are not prone to. For example, if a truck has been carelessly packed, its heavy cargo can shift, resulting in a potentially deadly truck accident. Other common truck accident causes include a lack of proper driver training, driving under the influence or driving exhaustion.
Because truck drivers are rewarded for making as many deliveries as possible, many drivers try to skimp on sleep to earn more. State and federal regulations prevent truck drivers from being at the wheel too much in a given time period, however. Exhaustion and illegal driving practices may be a factor in your truck accident case. You need the experienced team of Loya & Associates who are familiar with the regulations and can help you make sense of the complicated rules governing truck driver behavior.
