Personal Injury

Though personal injuries are extremely common, many are unavoidable random occurrences. When personal injuries are the result of the negligent, reckless or willful actions (or inactions) of another party, however, the other party can be held legally accountable. This means that if you suffer serious injury because of a reckless driver, an unmarked danger on someone else’s property (premises liability), a defective product (product liability), you are entitled to file a lawsuit to receive compensation. If you are seeking strong legal representation, there is no more well-respected or technically savvy personal injury law firm than Tautfest Bond.

What Makes Tautfest Bond Unique

While our practice routinely makes use of technical experts in various fields — e.g. metallurgy, biomedical/medical devices, cardiovascular and implantation medicine –the attorneys at Tautfest Bond are the aggressive advocates that make the legal process work for you. We not only have technological backgrounds, in-depth knowledge of personal injury law, and a track record of successful outcomes, we are remarkably adept negotiators and litigators. Having us in your corner gives you a rare advantage. We are quite capable not only of presenting highly complex visuals and accident reconstructions, but of making all technical aspects of evidence easily understandable.

Tautfest Bond personal injury attorneys are well-prepared to meet the demands of federal courts where most mass tort claims are handled. We are also adept at zeroing in on precisely who is to blame for your injury. In product liability cases, this means we are careful to investigate whether the defect occurred during the design, manufacturing, or marketing phase of production. Moreover, we are dedicated to treating you with the compassion you deserve.

Just because we are well-schooled in technology does not mean that our knowledge of personal injury is limited to product liability. We have comprehensive knowledge of the personal injury field and are strong legal representatives for clients who have suffered harm as a result of vehicular accidents or premises liability as well.

Personal Injury Caused by Defective Devices, Products, and Drugs

Our focus on personal injuries caused by defective medical devices and drugs frequently involve class action or mass tort actions since in many cases defective products affect a great many plaintiffs. Many other medical items fall under this umbrella, including:

  • IVC filters
  • Transvaginal mesh
  • Artificial Hip Joints
  • Drug injuries from medications such as blood thinners, antidepressants, Onglyza, Fentanyl, Invokana, testosterone therapy, and diabetes medications to name a few
  • Hernia mesh
  • Roundup weed killer
  • Talcum powder
  • Breast implants
  • Diagnostic equipment (e.g. X-ray, CT scan, MRI machines)
  • Hearing and visual aids
  • Hospital supplies or equipment (e.g. gurneys)
  • Pacemakers, defibrillators and heart Stents
  • Surgical tools

The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that patients injured by medical devices or equipment, whether such items have been FDA-approved or not, have the right to civil litigation. If you have suffered this type of personal injury, we will fight vigorously to obtain substantial recompense either through adept negotiations, a lawsuit, a class action suit or a mass tort action.*

*The major difference between class actions and mass tort actions is that while both are filed on behalf of  many clients, mass tort actions involve larger groups and more diverse injuries.

Damages Tautfest Bond Will Fight To Obtain for You and Your Family

As we all know, serious personal injury of a wage earner can result in financial distress, as well as emotional trauma, for the whole family. If you have been injured through the fault of another, whether in an accident or because of a defective product, our highly qualified team is ready to
work tirelessly to win your case so you receive the damages you’re entitled to.

We will file a personal injury claim on your behalf for economic and non-economic damages.

  • Economic damages include medical and therapy expenses, lost income (present and future), property damage, psychological counseling, rehabilitation and/or home healthcare.
  • Non-economic damages are payments for intangibles, such as pain and suffering, loss of consortium, or permanent disfigurement or disability.

If the defendant showed willful disregard for your health and safety, we may also be able to win you punitive damages, i.e. damages designed to punish the at-fault party and to dissuade others from engaging in similarly egregious misconduct.

Wrongful Death Cases

If you and your family have suffered the anguish of losing a loved one to personal injury, Tautfest Bond can help you obtain some measure of justice for the death. We will file a lawsuit on behalf of family members or the estate of the deceased. While we know that no amount of money will bring back your loved one, we will fight to ensure that you are compensated for medical and funeral costs, lost income, and the pain and suffering of the victim before death.

Don’t Wait and Worry — Call Tautfest Bond as Soon as Possible

All states impose time limits for bringing a personal injury claim called the statute of limitations. For instance, in Texas you have only 2 years to file a personal injury lawsuit. In most states the clock starts ticking either on the date you were injured or on the date you discovered the injury, since physical damage is often not apparent immediately. Although getting medical treatment obviously is your first priority, don’t procrastinate about getting in touch with our powerful, empathic attorneys. We are here to support you and protect your rights to compensation for a personal injury. Contact us by phone or through our website so that we can discuss your actions and start working on your case. Remember, you will pay no legal fees until we win.
