  • How do I know if I have a valid personal injury claim?

    Personal injury claims involve three key elements. First, the other person or company must have owed the injured person a duty. This duty can come in a variety of forms. Businesses, for example, have a duty to keep the public safe on their property. Professionals have a duty to uphold specific standards in the services they provide to the public.

    Second, the person must have failed to do that duty. For example, a driver who irresponsibly drives above the speed limit would have failed in their duty to other drivers, pedestrians and others on the road.

    Third, the negligence must have led to the harm that the injured person suffered. This involves both showing their injuries and linking those injuries to the negligent actions of the person or company.

  • How can a probate dispute be handled or avoided?
    It is always better to avoid probate disputes when possible. Clear estate plans created with the aid of an experienced attorney can minimize the chances of a dispute or a successful challenge to your will. However, if a dispute arises, our Killeen or Temple attorneys know how to address it efficiently.
  • What are the work requirements to qualify for SSDI benefits?
    The duration of work test for SSDI evaluates whether an application has worked and paid into the Social Security system long enough to qualify as “insured” for benefits. This calculation takes into account your age and when the disability began. Most people need 40 credits (which can be earned at the rate of four per year), and 20 of those credits must have been earned in the last 10 years before your disability began. Younger disabled workers need less.
