TexasPersonal Injury Attorneys

In the Dallas - Fort Worth area, the leading cause of accidents is car accidents and truck accidents. In Texas, more than 17,000 people were seriously injured in automobile accidents within the last year, and almost 4,000 people were killed. On top of that, Texas has a great deal of freight moving across its highways, and commercial vehicles were involved in more than 30,000 accidents.

Many of these accidents are due to a person's negligence. Distracted driving, texting while driving, and drunk driving are just some of the ways in which someone else's negligence can lead to personal injury.

Many people involved in auto accidents are not aware that they may be entitled to financial compensation as a result.

Have you been wrongfully terminated or experienced discrimination or harassment on the job?

These and many other issues are a sadly common part of people's work life. Employers can easily take advantage of their employees, and we are constantly surprised at just how far they are willing to go to prevent workers from getting what they deserve.

You can feel lost and alone, worried about finding a new job, paying your bills, and providing for your family.

Mass Tort & Class Action Lawsuits Product Liability Lawyers

Companies introduce products into the American stream of commerce every day. We are a consumer based society. We love it. Most of these products make our lives easier, provide enjoyment and are generally beneficial.

However, from time to time, companies market and sell products to consumers that turn out to be dangerous, and sometimes deadly. Often times, the companies that manufacture and market these products are either aware of the products' dangerous propensities or fail to exercise due care investigating these products before launching them on unsuspecting consumers. When this happens, the Warriors For Justice embark on holding these companies responsible under the principles of products liability.

Generally, products liability is an area of law that focuses on the relationship between companies and the consumers they target. Specifically, it focuses on a defective product that causes injuries. In a products liability action, everyone involved with the product, including, but not limited to the manufacturer, distributer, wholesaler and retail store can be held responsible for the role they play in introducing the dangerous product into the stream of commerce.

Plaintiffs in a products liability action often plead causes of action based on defects, including design defects, manufacturing defects and marketing defects. When a defective product is discovered it is often discovered on a mass scales which leads to mass tort litigation and class action suits.

Currently, the Warriors For Justice are handling mass tort and class action suits for the following products:

Civil Rights Attorneys

The Constitution of the United States guarantees certain inalienable rights for each individual. Unfortunately and all too often, the state or another entity, such as an employer, business, or institution violate citizens’ civil rights. At Hutchison & Stoy we believe that your civil liberties and personal rights deserve protection. We are well-versed in defending our clients' rights in a wide variety of circumstances.

The cards are stacked against you when taking on the government. Thus, civil rights cases require a lawyer with an extreme degree of expertise in the field.

We have tried many civil rights cases and obtained very favorable verdicts and settlements for our clients. In addition, we have handled civil rights appeals all the way to the United States Supreme Court. We believe that every person's rights should be protected, no matter what your personal background or case history may be.

Civil rights cases against the government are generally referred to as “1983 Claims.” The term “1983 Claim” is derived from the Civil Rights Act of 1871 which is numbered 42 U.S.C. § 1983. It allows a person to sue the government when someone or some institution acting “under color of” law deprives that person of a right bestowed upon them by the Constitution or other federal statute.
