There are a number of events that can form the basis of an actionable personal injury claim.
Auto Accident Attorneys
In today’s busy world, drivers are often accelerating through city and rural streets without being fully focused on what they are doing and what is in front of them. You may be a great driver who is always conscious of what others are doing – this is often referred to a defensive driving. However, we can’t control what others are doing. Even if we take evasive action to avoid a collision, oftentimes there is nothing you can do. Driving and texting increases the risk of an accident significantly. A recent study found that when drivers texted, their collision risk was 23 times greater.
If you believe you have been injured in an auto accident as a result of another driver’s negligence, you might have grounds to take legal action. The lawyers at Hughes Ellzey, LLP is vastly experienced in handling claims of this nature and are ready to assist you today.
Eighteen-Wheeler Accident Attorneys
The average 18-wheeler is moving down the highway at a weight of 80,000 pounds. Imagine if the company that operates a truck of this size fails to properly maintain it and/or hires unqualified drivers to sit behind the wheel of it. We feel the size and power of these trucks as we pass them on the left lane between the guardrail and the hopefully well-maintained wheels and tires spinning just feet from the passenger side of your car. Bad weather makes sharing the road with an 18-wheeler that much worse. If the driver is not paying attention, loses control, or dozes off, the chances of that truck causing catastrophic injury to other drivers on the highway is significant. The trucking company and the driver may be legally responsible to you if you were involved in a collision with an 18-Wheeler.

If you believe you have been a victim of medical negligence, call today or fill out an online form so we can evaluate your case.
Product Liability Attorneys
Dangerous products ranging from components on automobiles to drugs prescribed by physicians every day are responsible for causing injury and death to consumers across the country who paid for them. Unfortunately, many companies are more concerned about pushing their product onto the market to get in edge in the marketplace before sufficiently testing the safety of that product. This has been proven time and time again by lawyers like us who get their hands on company documents after filing suit on behalf on one or several of our clients.
Hughes Ellzey, LLP has taken on giant corporations in the auto industry, pharmaceutical industry, and medical device industry numerous times over the years. Despite the influence and financial resources of the supposed industry leaders in glass towers, Hughes Ellzey, LLP has repeatedly succeeded in fighting for and obtaining recoveries for its clients.
Wrongful Death Attorneys
A wrongful death action may be brought by family members of someone who died as a result of another person’s negligence. These cases can be the result of another kind of claim that would be actionable even if the victim survived – car and truck crashes, nursing home neglect, medical malpractice, construction accidents, airplane accidents, or the use of a defective or dangerous product. The surviving family member(s) may bring suit on behalf of the victim and recover damages that are not available for many other types of lawsuits.
Premises Liability Attorneys
These types of cases involve accidents caused by a dangerous or defective condition on someone’s land. Accidents that can give rise to a premises liability action can occur on numerous public and private properties, including grocery stores, malls, company offices, a warehouse, park, or professional sporting or concert venue. A wide range of defective or dangerous conditions can give rise to a “premises liability” claim, ranging from falling down a staircase because of a missing handrail, to tripping over an obstacle or slipping on a spill in a walkway or aisle, to getting bitten by a dog, among many others. An example of a sad premises case was widely reported in 2011 when a fan at a Texas Ranger’s game fell to his death because the guardrails in the upper deck were not built high enough to prevent a grown man or woman from falling over them. This forced the organization to raise the guardrails to an acceptable height.
Other Types of Cases
The list above is not exhaustive. There are many additional personal injury claims. These include nursing home abuse or neglect; aviation and boating accidents; animal and dog bites; brain, birth, burn and spinal cord injuries; other catastrophic accidents and injuries.
