San Antonio Personal Injury Lawyer - Car Accidents

Car Accident Injuries

A car or truck accident can change your life in a second. In an instant you go from good health to the inability to earn a living. You go from the ordinary way of life we all take for granted to raising your family alone. Loss of health, loss of life, loss of the ability to work hard and enjoy a hobby can be and often is devastating. Beyond the grief and worry that comes from losing your own health or your spouse or child, you are also faced with staggering economic losses. Past and future medical care and past and future lost wages can be in the hundreds and hundreds of thousands. The recovery of this debt from someone who violated the rules of the road is essential.And as the saying goes, to add insult to injury, people who find themselves in this situation through no fault of their own are often looked upon with suspicion by our current jurors.
 
This firm spends a considerable amount of time in court and in front of juries. Insurance companies have run a remarkable propaganda campaign such that jurors are often suspicious of someone who hires a trial lawyer to hold the wrongdoer accountable. We have found that when jurors actually hear about a legitimate injury caused by the violation of basic safety rules we all depend on, they are fair and just with their verdict.

Experience Matters

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an accident with another car, a truck or a commercial vehicle, contact an experienced trial lawyer right away. It is important to act quickly so that an investigation can begin and evidence preserved. Make sure the lawyer is one who will readily go to trial if necessary to secure a just recovery. Insurance companies do their homework and they know the lawyers who won't take a case to trial and who settle for unfair results.
 
At the Law Office of Thomas G. Kemmy, we have spent more than 30 years fighting for the rights of individuals dealing with serious accidental injuries and deaths. At our practice you are not just a legal case, you are a person or a family faced with a catastrophic life-changing event.

Payment Options

In all personal injury cases, our firm serves its clients on a contingency fee basis. The client pays no attorney's fee unless we win or settle your case. We also advance all court costs, litigation expenses, and expert fees. We don't ask to be reimbursed until the end of the case, but only if we obtain a successful settlement or trial verdict.

Other Practice Areas

Tom Kemmy and Staff have the ability to take on a variety of different types of cases and disputes. Whether your claim involves personal injury, medical malpractice, a business dispute, or a fight over your property's mineral rights - we will protect your interests.

Common Medical Malpractice Claims

Birth Related Medical Malpractice

Birth-related medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, hospital, or other medical staff acts negligently, fails to follow the standards of care for patient safety, and causes one of the following harms:

  • Injury to the mother or child during pregnancy or delivery.
  • Failure to Warn -- When the parents should have ended or avoided a pregnancy for safety or health reasons.
  • Birth Defects caused by negligent prenatal care or misdiagnosis.
Hospital Related Medical Malpractice

Even if medical negligence occurred at a hospital, it does not mean the hospital itself is automatically liable. Generally speaking, hospitals, like all employers, are liable for the harms caused by their negligent employees. However, most doctors at hospitals are independent contractors - meaning they are not employed by the hospital.

Typically, nurses, medical technicians, support staff, nutritionist, and administrators   are hospital employees. If a patient is injured while being treated by a hospital employee, the patient can usually sue the hospital for resulting damages.

Doctor and Physcian Medical Malpractice

In any medical malpractice case you must show exactly how your injury was caused by medical negligence. When it comes to doctors,you must first establish what the required standard of care was, and whether your doctor failed to meet the standard. Second, you must show how that failure in standard of care caused your specific injuries and damages.

Failure to Diagnose

Failure to diagnose is when your doctor failed to connect the dots between your symptoms and underlying condition. Misdiagnosis may also be a failure to diagnose, but it normally refers to when your doctor incorrectly believes you have an underlying condition when you actually suffer from another; and the doctor should have known the correct diagnosis to make. Delayed diagnosis is when your doctor isn't fast enough in making the connection between your symptoms and the underlying condition.

Common Failures with Diagnosing Patients:

  • Failure to admit or treat Patient
  • Failure to order necessary diagnostic or radiological tests (x-rays, CT scans, MRI);
  • Failure to consider and diagnose symptoms;
  • Failure to note or act upon patient complaints or family concerns;
  • Failure to communicate or record information - a break in the continuity of care
  • Failure to respond appropriately
Nursing Home Negligence

Medical neglect, where the nursing home fails to provide adequate attention, prevention, or medication for concerns such as bed sores, infections, cuts, diabetes, cognitive diseases, and mobility concerns.

Negligent Supervision- Where the elder person is repeatedly ignored, left alone, or disregarded.

Basic needs neglect, where the nursing home neglects to provide reasonable food, water, or a safe and clean environment.

Hygienic Neglect - where patients do not receive adequate help with laundry, cleaning, bathing, brushing their teeth, or other forms of hygienic practices.

Surgery Related Medical Malpractice

 All surgeries involve risk. Surgical errors go beyond the known risks of surgery. Common surgical negligence include:

  • Injuring nerves or ligaments during the procedure;
  • Leaving equipment or material inside the patient's body;
  • Operating on the wrong body part;
  • Incorrectly performing the incision; and
  • Administrating pre and post operative medication incorrectly.
