If you have been injured due to the negligent or reckless actions of another person or a company, you can seek financial relief in the courts. Bringing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit is sometimes the only way to prevent negligent businesses or individuals, drunk truck or car drivers or careless manufacturers from continuing to harm people.
As Woodville personal injury attorneys with more than 20 years of experience, we are very familiar with the Texas courts. We are forceful and bold in seeking monetary compensation for clients who have suffered serious personal injuries or for grieving families whose loved ones have died as a result of:
- Auto accidents, truck or 18-wheeler accidents, motorcycle accidents or drunk boating accidents
- SUV rollovers or ATV accidents caused by bad vehicle design
- Manufacturing defects and other product liability issues
- On-the-job accidents caused by third parties or companies that don’t have worker’s compensation, including offshore drilling injuries, accidents on drilling rigs, logging accidents and refinery accidents
In estimating damages in injury cases, you must calculate lost wages, medical expenses and pain and suffering to determine a fair value for your claim.
Important evidence can quickly disappear. If you or a loved one has been injured, contact an experienced lawyer immediately to ensure that the investigation of your case begins as soon as possible.
If you or a family member was in a truck or car accident, time is of the essence. Important evidence such as skid marks or gouging in the road can quickly disappear, and the vehicle’s black box can be tampered with. It is wise to engage a skilled Woodville car accident attorney as soon as possible to help protect the evidence.
At the law office of Lindsey B. Whisenhant, Attorney at Law, we have represented numerous car accident victims and their families throughout Texas. We also handle cases involving trucks, motorcycles, boats and ATV and SUV accidents caused by defective manufacturing.
In every accident case, we move quickly to gather vital evidence, including requesting a restraining order on the vehicle’s black box to prevent any tampering with the crucial information it may contain.
Work Related Injuries
Industrial workers are frequently subject to a variety of dangerous conditions. Whether working on an offshore oil rig, at a logging site, in a chemical plant or in an oil refinery, they run the risk of severe accidents.
At the law office of Lindsey B. Whisenhant, Attorney at Law, we are Woodville work-related injury attorneyswho handles all kinds of oil field and maritime cases. Cases usually result from the negligence or wrongful acts of a third party, such as a contractor employed by a different company, or from defective products or machinery. They may involve many different problems, including:
- Falling objects
- Construction accidents
- Chemical exposure
- Collapsing scaffolding or ladders
- Moving vehicles
- Heavy machinery
- Faulty products

If you have been injured by defective machinery or a third party while working as a driller, roughneck, welder or other industrial employee, come to our office for a free consultation. We will discuss the merits of your case with you and advise you about your options.
Because we believe in treating clients with honesty and integrity, we will tell you upfront whether you have a case that is likely to win in court. If we believe you have a good case, we will fight tirelessly for your right to fair financial compensation. Because we take cases on a contingency fee basis, you pay lawyers fees only if we recover money for you.*
Truck and 18-Wheeler Accidents
Because of federal statutes and regulations by which trucking companies and drivers must abide, cases involving 18-wheeler and truck accidents can be quite complex. It takes a lawyer with in-depth knowledge to sort through eyewitness testimony, drivers’ logs and other evidence to defend your interests and pursue fair compensation.
As attorneys with more than 20 years of legal experience, we also know which tough questions to ask to build the strongest case possible. We may ask:
- Is there evidence of a federal violation by the driver?
- Do toxicology and blood tests reveal anything about the driver?
- Does the black box contain any valuable information?
- Was the driver suffering from fatigue due to excessive hours on the road?
- Were narcotics involved?
- What is the background of the truck owner or operator?
- What information does the driver’s log record?
- Was the driver talking on a cell phone?
Because we handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, you do not have to pay attorneys fees unless we win a recovery for you.* To learn more or to schedule a free initial consultation, use the contact form below or call the law office of Lindsey B.
