When an accident occurs, it can throw the victim’s life into chaos. From time missed at work to rising medical bills, even a seemingly small incident can lead to a host of troubles. When this harm is caused by the negligence of another person, company, or entity, the responsible party may be liable for resulting damages.

John R. Gilbert aggressively pursues compensation for victims of a wide range of personal injury incidents across Brazoria County and the  surrounding areas.

Areas of personal injury include:

  • Defective Products – From infants choking on small parts to air bags which failed to deploy in a vehicle, many items can cause serious harm if
    they do not function properly or if manufacturers do not warn consumers of their dangers.
  • Premises Liability – Property owners, managers. and other supervisors hold a responsibility to provide a safe environment for visitors, tenants, and other guests. If a person is hurt through falling on a wet floor, being assaulted in a dark garage, or contracting an illness through mold, they
    may have grounds for a premises liability claim.
  • Auto Accidents – speeding. failing to obey traffic signs, and other instances of negligence on the road can lead to a disastrous crash and hurt other drivers and passengers. Injuries from wrecks can range from bruises to paralysis and can completely change the life of a victim.
  • Medical Malpractice – patients trust that doctors and other medical staff will provide diligent care to those injured or ill. A delayed or incorrect diagnosis, negligence during a hospital stay, or a lack of supervision can cause life-threatening harm to patients.
  • Nursing Home Abuse – All too often the elderly and other patients of nursing home care suffer negligence and abuse at the hands of staff, ranging from failure to provide a clean environment to mishandling of a patient’s finances.
  • Oilfield Injuries- The oil and gas industry continues to grow at an impressive rate, but it also carries a comparatively high risk of injury or death on the job. Workers face hazards from heavy machinery, flammable chemicals, and other risks.
  • Birth Injuries – Pregnancy and childbirth are delicate times for both the mother and child. Even the smallest instance of negligence could lead to life-threatening danger for either person, or lasting harm for the newborn.
  • Maritime Accidents – Those who work at sea or on docks across the country face a unique set of hazards on a daily basis. If a sailor or harbor worker is injured on the job, they can seek compensation under the Jones Act and similar legislation.

Let reverence for the laws be breathed by every American mother to the lisping babe that prattles on her lap – let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in primers, spelling books, and in almanacs; let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice.
– Abraham Lincoln
