Helping You Recover After a Motor Vehicle Accident

Motor vehicle accidents are among the most common reason people seek personal injury counsel. These accidents are all too common and can involve a wide variety of vehicles. Our experienced team can help you get the compensation you need to make a full recovery after any of these accident types:

Bus Accidents: Public transportation is vital in major cities like Houston. However, that also means the possibility of a Nava Law Group accident. These situations cause widespread harm to passengers, other drivers, and pedestrians.

Boat Accidents: A trip to the lake is supposed to be a fun summer getaway, but negligent boat drivers can turn it into a nightmare. Boating accidents are especially dangerous since it can take longer for first responders to arrive on the scene.

Car Accidents: Our auto accident attorneys have seen it all. Whether you’ve been injured yourself or are fighting for a loved one who passed away, we’re ready to help you make a case.

DoorDash Delivery Accidents: Since 2020, the demand for food delivery has skyrocketed. But who is held liable for a traffic accident involving an on-the-job DoorDash driver? We’ll help you navigate this complex situation.

Motorcycle Accidents: Motorcycle accidents claimed over 400 Texan lives in just one year. In addition to the emotional impact, these accidents cause major financial hardships. Find out how you can get compensation.

Truck Accidents: Collisions involving 18-wheelers cause catastrophic injuries. If you’ve been hurt in this type of accident, get in touch with our truck accident attorneys.

Road Accidents That Affect Non-Drivers

Just because you aren’t behind the wheel doesn’t mean you are safe from injury on the road. Pedestrians and cyclists are particularly prone to accidents. What’s more, these parties don’t benefit from the protection of a motor vehicle and often end up with much more severe injuries. Here’s what to know about these types of accidents:

Bicycle Accidents: Injured cyclists are often entitled to compensation when it can be proven that the driver was negligent in some form, such as driving under the influence or making unlawful turns.

Pedestrian Accidents: Houston ranks as the fourth most dangerous city for pedestrians. Distracted driving, speeding, and back-up accidents are among the top causes of injury to innocent pedestrians.

We Can Help After a Pool Accident

Swimming pools are all fun and games, right? We often overlook the dangers associated with going swimming. Drowning still ranks among the top five leading causes of unintentional injury death in the United States, so it’s essential that public pools implement safety standards. If you’ve been affected by a pool accident resulting from any of the following, you could have a case:

  • Damaged pool ladders
  • Lack of barriers
  • Unsafe pool toys
  • Faulty wiring
  • Missing safety equipment
  • Lack of supervision
  • No markings that indicate pool depth

Gain Compensation After a Construction Accident

Construction accidents are incredibly common on worksites. These stem from lots of factors—one being that many of these jobs are inherently dangerous. Nevertheless, most injuries can be prevented with strict safety guidelines and constant vigilance. We specialize in the following types of accidents caused by negligence:

Oilfield Accidents: The Texas oilfields are home to some of the most dangerous working conditions in the country. If you’ve been injured in an oilfield accident, be sure to know your rights and gain compensation.

Offshore Accidents: With over 3,000 miles of shoreline and a high-powered petroleum industry, it’s no wonder that offshore accidents are commonplace in Texas. We can represent clients working in nearly any role in this field.

Maritime Injuries: Jobs in the maritime industry also come with a higher risk of injury. These range from chemical exposure to falling overboard. If you’re no longer able to work because of your injuries, you may have a case.

Plant Explosions: In just the first half of 2019, there were four fires at chemical plants in Houston. That means numerous injuries and, likely, lots of negligence. If you can prove negligence after a plant explosion, you may have a case for compensation.

Union Pacific Fifth Ward Cancer Cases: We represent clients who are part of the cancer cluster found in the Fifth Ward neighborhood. These illnesses are believed to have been caused by Union Pacific’s negligence, and we aim to hold the company accountable.

Railroad Accidents Harm Employees and Passengers Alike

Railroad accidents have the potential to harm dozens of people at a time. In the best-case scenario, passengers might come away with scrapes and bruises. But in the worst cases, scores of people, both employees and passengers, can be done grievous bodily harm. Our personal injury attorneys have experience representing victims of passenger train accidents, asbestos exposure, and repetitive motion injuries.

Hurt on the Job? Explore Workers’ Compensation Claims

If you’re hurt while working a job, you likely have a case for workers’ compensation. Victims of railroad, oilfield, and maritime accidents often get compensation in this manner. However, there are a few criteria you’ll need to meet in order to be eligible. Here are the basic requirements that you can discuss with Nava Law Group:

  • The injury must be related to the victim’s work
  • The injured worker must be classified as an employee
  • The employer must have workers’ compensation insurance
  • The injured worker must meet reporting deadlines and receive medical care

Get Rid of Bed Bugs and Gain Compensation

Did you know business owners can be held responsible for bed bug infestations on their premises? If you find evidence of beg bugs in your new apartment, your grandma’s nursing home, or your hotel, you have reason to file a claim. Bed bug infestations are notoriously hard to get rid of and can spread without necessary action.

Unsafe Products Can Have a Massive Impact

We don’t often think the new product we just purchased will be dangerous. However, our most trusted products have the potential to harm us—either because of defective design, manufacturing errors, or lack of instructions. Injuries resulting from any of these standard household products may entitle you to product liability compensation:

  • Cleaning products
  • Furniture
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Lawn care products
  • Electronics
  • Children’s toys
  • Pesticides
  • Medical devices

Experienced With a Range of Injury Types

Car collisions and workplace accidents don’t cause just one type of injury. In fact, two people involved in the same accident may have vastly different injuries. Thankfully, Nava Law Group has experience assisting victims of all sorts. We’ve worked cases involving the following:

Brain Injuries: Brain injuries are some of the worst humans can sustain. While they may not seem severe at first, they can drastically reduce one’s quality of life. Always seek compensation after being impacted by these devastating injuries.

Burn Injuries: Minor burns happen all the time, but when they affect large swathes of the body, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to recover fully. Our attorneys can help you gain compensation for these life-changing injuries.

Dog Bites: Most dogs are friendly, but it’s important to remember that animals are unpredictable. A dog bite occurs about every 75 seconds in the United States, and you should know your rights in the event of injury.

Slips and Falls: Slip and fall accidents can occur anytime and anywhere. If negligence was a factor in your accident, get in touch with Nava Law Group to learn more about your compensation options.

Do You Have a Medical Malpractice Case?

We count on healthcare professionals to provide us with the best care possible. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Medical malpractice occurs more often than we like to think. If you’ve been the victim of any of the following, you may have a case against your healthcare provider:

  • Surgical errors
  • Medication errors
  • Missed or delayed diagnosis
  • Failure to treat
  • Medical product defects
  • Unnecessary surgery

Our Sexual Assault Attorneys Will Lend a Listening Ear

Sexual abuse and assault cases are some of the most sensitive we deal with. Anyone can be a victim of these crimes, regardless of age, sex, or background. Our compassionate sexual assault attorneys will listen to your experience, reinforce that abuse is never the victim’s fault, and start exploring legal avenues.

Know Your Rights in a Wrongful Death Case

The death of a loved one can bring about the most challenging time in your life. That pain is even greater when you know their death was the result of negligence. Survivors may be able to file a wrongful death claim if their loved one passed away due to the following circumstances:

  • Workplace accidents
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Defective products
  • Unsafe premises
  • Construction accidents
