When a dispute arises and you are unable to resolve the dispute through negotiation or even mediation, sometimes it is necessary to file an action in the Texas courts and have a judge or jury make the decisions. If you have a problem that you’re unable to resolve without legal action you can trust the law firm of Kathleen Vossler and Associates to fight for what you deserve. We regularly handle auto collision and civil litigation cases and have the knowledge and expertise to efficiently get your case resolved once and for all. Just some of the areas our civil litigation practice are:
- Breach of Contract
Most of us at some point in our lives have had a person or company that refused to honor a verbal or written promise or agreement to provide a service or product in a certain manner. The legal term for this problem is referred to as “breach of contract,” which is the failure to live up to the terms or performance conditions of a valid contract, whether written or verbal. This is one of the most common causes of action that we handle because unfortunately promises are broken far too often in today’s day and age. Our office can file a lawsuit and ask the court to award you financial compensation for the loss you incurred because of the breach.
- Tort Litigation
Black’s Law Dictionary defines a tort as a “wrong ; injury; the opposite of right in modern practice, tort is constantly used as an English word to denote a wrong or wrongful act, for which an action will lie, as distinguished from a contract. A tort is a legal wrong committed upon the person or property independent of contract.” Car wrecks, auto collisions, injuries to persons including wrongful death cases are very common causes of action for which you can ask the court to award you the amount of damages you suffered because of a wrongful action or injury that you incurred due to someone’s wrongful act. Following are some of the most common civil torts that our civil litigation practice includes.
Negligence is one of the most common torts (wrongful act)that is widely litigated in order to recover damages for the loss you incurred. But without the services of an experienced civil litigation attorney, it can be difficult to prove. Black’s Law Dictionary defines negligence as “the omission to do something which a reasonable man, guided by those considerations which ordinarily regulate the conduct of human affairs, would do, or doing something which a prudent and reasonable man would not do.” Basically, in layman’s terms, this tort means that a person or entity did or did not do something that they should have and caused damage to another because of it.This can come up when a person is injured in a car wreck that was caused by the other driver failing to apply his brakes, or driving in an unreasonable manner. His failure to apply the brakes would be considered negligence, and that negligence can cause serious injuries or death to himself or others involved in a car wreck.
When someone acts negligently and harms another in an auto collision or car wreck, the person who is injured may experience loss of work, permanent injuries, disfigurement, or permanent disabilities that prevent them from doing what they were able to do in the past. It can also cause serious and lasting pain and suffering. The Law Office of Kathleen Vossler and Associates will fight to protect your rights and work hard to get the settlement or award to put your life back together.
