Patrick R. Kelly’s law practice remains dedicated to those injured by another’s negligence or intentional harmful act. We are honored to represent severely damaged and injured clients in the following practice areas:Motor Vehicle Accidents
When drivers obtain a driver’s license, they are making a contract with other drivers and pedestrians on the road that they will operate their vehicle in a reasonable and safe manner. But preventable car accidents occur every day to the negligence and dangerous driving of others. Drivers breach their duty to operate their vehicle in a safe manner. Victims in car wrecks will need guidance to ensure they are treated fairly in the process. Our injury firm has successfully handled numerous automobile car wreck cases all over the Dallas/Fort Worth area and can provide the advocacy deserved to compensate for injuries, medical bills, and other damages following a car wreck.Premises Liability
An owner of a premises generally has a duty to maintain a property in a manner that is safe and reasonable. Texas law considers various issues when someone trips or slips and falls and is injured at a store, parking lot, building, apartment, or other location. Generally, such public premises must be maintained, inspected, or contain warnings to ensure that someone on the premises is not injured because of trip or slip hazard on the property. Also, a property owner can be held liable when one is injured by falling items that hit, injure, or even kill someone on the property. Various factors must be considered and discussed with our Dallas-Forth Worth injury lawyer to evaluate whether an injured party has a viable case.Dog Bites and Dog Attacks
Texas law generally applies what is known as the “one bite rule” for claims asserted against dog handlers and owners when a dog attack occurs. That is, the law may require proof that the dog has bitten or shown dangerous propensities before the subject attack for a claim to have merit. However, there are other laws in place such as city ordinances for municipalities in the Dallas area that are to protect against others being injured by a dog. One example is the “no leash law.” Our firm is equipped and ready to handle cases for those who have been injured by an aggressive or loose animal.Injuries Caused by Stairs
Injuries that occur when one falls, trips, or slips when walking up or down stairs is similar in many regards to a general premises liability case. But there are other factors that can and should be considered by an experienced attorney when one is injured on stairs or steps. There are industry standards that should be followed to construct and maintain stairs. Most cities and local governments in the DFW Metroplex have adopted national building code standards to ensure stairs and steps are safe for those who use them. When the stairs are not maintained according to these standards, the property owner or management may be liable for injuries.Sexual Abuse
The most vulnerable and innocent of our society are to be protected at all cost. Federal and Texas criminal laws are in place to protect children and adults from sexual abuse. Additionally, civil claims against the perpetrators and any other person or entity who may have benefited or should have known of the sexual abuse may be asserted to compensate the sexual abuse victim for medical bills in the past and future, mental anguish, pain and suffering, and permanent impairment. Numerous civil remedies and avenues can be explored to prevent sexual abuse in the future and to ensure just compensation for those abused.Skiing Accidents
Thousands of Texans take to the slopes to ski and snowboard in the mountains of Colorado, New Mexico, and other ski resorts every year. When someone is injured due to a ski collision, an experienced Texas injury lawyer can help. The injury attorney can find and assert claims against local Texas residents if they are at-fault for a ski collision. Likewise, a Texas resident who has been injured while skiing due to another’s negligence should seek local counsel to discuss options to pursue a civil claim against a negligent skier, snowboarder, or resort company. Various laws, rules, and regulations will apply to any given acts.
