Personal Injury

Beaumont & Port Arthur Personal Injury Practice Areas

At Portner Bond, PLLC, we have seen what can happen when an individual or family is brought to financial catastrophe because of a personal injury or wrongful death claim. Insurance companies are often cold and self-serving, and people who have suffered financial damages resulting from a negligence accident soon learn a harsh reality: without aggressive, experienced legal representation, they will be taken advantage of by the insurance company.

Contact us right away if you or a loved one has been hurt. It is best to take action immediately, as there are often issues that can arise due to the statute of limitations and other time sensitive issues.

Our Accident Attorneys Thrive On Handling Complex Cases

Investigating and preparing a case for a trial or a maximum insurance settlement requires an in-depth understanding of the hidden barriers insurance companies establish in order to avoid paying compensation. At Portner Bond, PLLC, we have over 30 years of experience developing creative, intelligent strategies that counter an insurance company’s ability to stall a settlement and/or minimize damages.

We Help Our Clients Attain Full Compensation To Which They May Be Entitled

You have the right to receive compensation for injuries and other damages caused by someone else’s negligence. Unfortunately, when it comes to pursuing this with the insurance company or party responsible for an injury or wrongful death, achieving a full and just solution seems unattainable. We help you hold the negligent party accountable.

We Will Give You a Fighting Change Against Large Companies

Personal injury victims often find themselves battling large insurance companies and/or corporations. These entities often have teams of attorneys whose main goal is to discourage you from seeking full compensation. We won’t let that happen. We level the playing field and make sure that these companies act in good faith.

The information below is a brief overview of our practice areas. If you need help with a Texas personal injury claim, call (409) 203-2302 immediately.

Car Accidents & Other Auto Accident Injuries

Some of the most common types of injuries involve auto accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents. This is not only due to the high volume of drivers on the road but also the number of distractions and negligent actions that may cause these accidents. Auto-related accidents often lead to serious injuries and may permanently alter the life of the victim. Committed to working tirelessly on your behalf, the attorneys at Portner Bond, PLLC have won millions in compensation for their clients.

When Accidents End in Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is extremely painful, especially when that loss could have been prevented. Those left behind may have deep seated feelings of anger, depression, and anxiety. The financial burden can also be overwhelming, particularly if the deceased was depended upon for support. Our mission is to work with surviving parties to hold responsible those who were negligent. Wrongful death claims help ensure that others don’t suffer the same unfortunate fate.

Dangerous & Defective Product Injuries

Pharmaceutical Products

Each year in the United States, thousands of innocent people are severely injured and/or killed by dangerous prescription medication or pharmaceuticals. Many of these dangerous drugs have not been properly tested, studied or marketed. Companies more interested in making a profit than ensuring patient safety rush drugs to the market, often missing or omitting dangerous side effects, including birth defects, heart problems, liver damage, muscle aches, paralysis, kidney damage, brain damage and cancer.

SSRI & Birth Defects

If you suffer from clinical depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), a panic disorder or an anxiety disorder, you may likely have been prescribed a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). Although SSRIs can be very effective antidepressants, they can also result in a host of serious side effects, increase birth defects and result in suicidal thoughts or actions. Common SSRI antidepressants include Prozac, Lexapro, Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa and others.

Work Injuries and Industrial Accidents

Work injuries and industrial accidents are often very serious. It is up to an employer to do everything in their power to create a safe work environment. Cost-cutting measures may undermine worker safety. At Portner Bond, PLLC, our job is to protect Texas workers and prevent a physical injury from becoming a financial disaster due to runaway medical expenses, lost wages, missed time, emotional damage and, in severe cases, long-term treatment.

Dangerous Children’s Products

When you buy a product or device for your child, you trust that it will bring them joy — not harm them. Unfortunately, not all children’s products are designed or manufactured correctly. Such negligence can lead to falls, lead paint poisoning, strangulation, choking and countless other injuries. If your child was injured or killed due to a defective or dangerous product, you have legal rights and options. We will explain your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Defective Medical Devices

Each year, hundreds of new medical devices are placed on the market by medical device makers. Unfortunately, some of these devices may cause serious or fatal injuries to the very people they are supposed to help. If you have been injured or lost a loved one as a result of a dangerous or defective medical device, you may be entitled to compensation. Manufacturers may be liable for injuries resulting from a defective design, manufacturing defect or insufficient product safety instructions/warnings. Common types of defective medical devices include pacemakers, hip implants, defibrillators and defective leads.

Transvaginal Mesh

Intended to help hold a woman’s pelvic organs in place and to treat urinary problems, transvaginal mesh acts as a barrier or retaining wall. The mesh itself is made of plastic, which makes it a cost-efficient alternative to reconstructive surgery. Unfortunately, this product has been proven to cause serious complications in many women who have received implants in an effort to correct stress urinary incontinence (SUI) or pelvic organ prolapse (POP). If you or a woman you love has suffered severe internal damage or pain from a transvaginal mesh, contact us immediately.
