Open/Close Menu Austin Personal Injury & Business Litigation Firm

McLeanLaw PC and The Meyerson Law Firm won a huge appellate victory in the Third Court of Appeals this morning. When I was working with Jeff Meyerson’s firm, Jeff and I represented a very nice man who suffered significant injuries following a neurosurgeon’s implantation of an “Eclipse Sphere” manufactured by Verticor, Ltd. The FDA cleared…

Texas Lawyer ran a story on one of our cases yesterday. You can read the article here: Texas Lawyer article. Lawyers, like drivers and doctors, make mistakes. When they do, their clients’ rights and remedies can be significantly damaged (if not precluded altogether). We’ve handled a number of legal malpractice throughout the years. Mark’s quote…

By now, y’all are likely well aware of the recent shocking admissions by Volkswagen. VW installed “defeat devices” in their “TDI” (turbo diesel injection) line of vehicles, which triggered when the cars were tested. In reality, the emissions levels of the TDI vehicles were up to forty (40) times what the defeat device allowed to…

I just came across this fantastic article, published by Forbes in March (and before that by The New York Observer). The article displays the myths and misrepresentations the insurance industry spewed to the American public leading to the tort reform movement. “The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”…

Preface: We haven’t posted much recently due to a real rough couple of weeks personally. Katie and I truly appreciate the outpouring of love and support we’ve received from our family, friends, and colleagues through these tough times. Thank you and we love you all. More substantively: We are proud of the Supreme Court’s recent…

With the 84th Legislative Session now closed, we’re happy to report two significant wins for Texas consumers. Most importantly, SB1628, the so-called “Insurance Immunity Act” which I blawged about here and here, was (thankfully) defeated. Additionally, in response to Williams v. Texas West Oaks Hosp., the Legislature narrowed the definition of a “healthcare liability claim”…

The first-party insurance bill I blawged about here appears dead in the water, but that hasn’t stopped its proponents from continuing to sneak its provisions into other bills. Texas Watch Reports: Thus far, lawmakers have thwarted their efforts by killing Senate Bill 1628. However, the property insurance industry – which pocketed at least $11.5 billion…

In a somewhat surprising move from the traditionally Hospital-friendly Texas Supreme Court, it issued its decision in Ross v. St. Luke’s Hospital [link to opinion]today, narrowing the definition of a “healthcare liability claim” in Texas. In Ross, a visitor (not a patient) to the hospital slipped and fell near the lobby exit doors, suffering injuries….

I came across this fantastic piece from Dave Lieber of The Dallas Morning News today. The insurance industry, through insurance agency owner and State Senator Larry Taylor, filed a bill which would gut the Prompt Payment Act1 and statutory interest rates on first-party insurance claims2 in Texas. This means there will be no real time…
