Personal Injury Accidents Can Cause Catastrophic Injuries

Personal injury accidents that lead to catastrophic injuries can happen quickly in nearly any location. From slip and fall accidents caused by dangerous conditions in retail locations to car accident injuries, personal injury accidents can change a person’s life in a matter of seconds. Sadly, most personal injury accidents are preventable and are caused by negligence or recklessness. 

Under Texas law, victims who have been injured because of one or more parties’ negligence may have a right to pursue compensation for their damages through a personal injury lawsuit. At Ceja Law Firm PLLC, we have a proven track record of recovering compensation for victims of personal injury accidents in the Galveston area. We understand how important it is that personal injury victims obtain the full and fair compensation they need and deserve. We represent clients who have been seriously injured in a wide range of accidents, including the following:

Fighting for the Compensation You Deserve After Being Injured

Galveston personal injury victims can suffer extensive damages, especially if they have been catastrophically injured. When a victim suffers a brain injury or spinal cord injury, they may need extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and care services for the rest of their life. Pursuing an insurance settlement or a personal injury lawsuit allows victims to pursue all of the damages they will need in the future. Victims may be able to recover the following types of damages:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Disability

The Benefits of Hiring a Galveston Personal Injury Attorney

Accepting a settlement offer that is too low could result in you being unable to pay for all of your medical expenses in the future. If you cannot work because of your injuries, it’s especially important that you recover compensation for your loss of earning potential. At Ceja Law Firm PLLC, we work with medical and financial experts to carefully determine the expenses you will incur over time so we can aggressively negotiate for the best settlement possible. We have extensive experience negotiating with insurance adjusters for fair settlements.

Our Criminal Defense Practice Area

Whether you have been charged with a crime and are innocent or overcharged by aggressive prosecutors, you will benefit from working with an experienced criminal defense attorney. Perhaps you were accused of being the perpetrator in a domestic dispute even though you were not the aggressor. You may have been arrested for a DWI even though you were not under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Law enforcement officers in Galveston can be overly aggressive when arresting citizens, and prosecutors can be overzealous when charging defendants. When you work with attorney Jose Ceja, he will provide you with a zealous legal defense. 

Jose Ceja was a former prosecutor who understands all the strategies used to convict defendants. He uses his knowledge and experience as a prosecutor to develop effective legal defense strategies. When he investigates your case, he will look for any errors or constitutional violations that police officers or prosecutors have engaged in while bringing charges against you. He has also completed extensive field sobriety testing, blood testing, and computer forensics training. He uses this training to advocate for clients who’ve been charged with drug and DWI-related offenses.

Legal Defenses Against Criminal Charges

The best legal defense in your case will depend on the facts of your case. After Jose Ceja thoroughly understands your case’s circumstances, he will begin developing an effective legal strategy. If the police officers who arrested you engaged in an illegal search and seizure, your Constitutional rights may have been violated. We may be able to petition the court to throw out the evidence gained in the illegal search and seizure. If you’ve been charged with some type of assault-based charge, we may reasonably be able to claim that you were acting in self-defense.

Giving Your Case the Attention It Deserves

Working with a solo attorney comes with many benefits. Your case will not be handed off to a paralegal or legal secretary when you work with Ceja Law Firm PLLC. Instead, Jose Ceja will personally handle your case and develop a legal strategy tailored to the best outcome possible. Many of his past clients have stated that they appreciate how he communicates regularly with them and helps them make informed decisions about their cases. At Ceja Law Firm PLLC, we emphasize communication with clients and respond quickly to our client’s questions.
