The Hidden Dangers of Water Parks

The Loewy Law Firm has filed suit on behalf of a San Antonio woman who sustained a traumatic brain injury at a water park. While many people view water parks as a fun family outlet, the truth is these venues are very dangerous. Often, water park employees are not well trained and the actual rides can be very dangerous. In our case, a water park employee caused our client to slam her head into a wall during a ride, which caused our client to go unconscious. Our client was subsequently airlifted to an area hospital, where she was put in a medically… Read More

DWI Accidents

The Loewy Law Firm has been retained to represent an Austin woman who was seriously injured in a collision caused by a drunk driver. Our client was at a red light on an outer road of IH-35 when a drunk driver careened over IH-35, drove down a grassy hill, and slammed directly into our client. Drunk driving accidents are some of the worst accidents our law firm handles. We are in complete agreement with Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo that drunk driving should not be tolerated in Austin and fully support ‘No Refusal’ weekends. Responsible citizens should always call for a cab… Read More

Walkway Collapses – Who is Responsible?

Recently, the City of Austin took the rare step of shutting down the Wood Ridge Apartments and telling all of the residents they could no longer live there. The City did this because two weeks ago a second story walkway collapsed and the City concluded the entire structure was unsafe. Thankfully, to this point, no one has gotten hurt but obviously if a second story walkway collapsed with people on it, there is a strong likelihood people would be seriously hurt and die. In the event someone got hurt on a walkway collapse, who would be responsible? The short answer… Read More

No Refusal Weekends – DWI Accidents

The Austin Police Department recently a conducted a “No Refusal Weekend” for Memorial Day. This is where if a police officer believes someone is intoxicated, the cop will not let the person “refuse” a blood test but, rather, will get a warrant from a Judge to draw the person’s blood. Many people think this is not constitutional but it actually is – in 1966, the Supreme Court held in Schmerber v. California that police could extract blood from a suspected drunk driver without the driver’s permission (as long as a Judge approved it). The Loewy Law Firm is a strong advocates for… Read More

Protecting Children

The Loewy Law Firm has helped many children who have been seriously injured or killed due to the wrongful actions of others. Most people are aware that children get injured at times – but many times simply chalk it up to “kids being kids”. While this is true, it is also true that when children get hurt by someone else’s negligence, the parents and child are entitled to compensation. If your child has been injured, contact an Austin personal injury lawyer Adam Loewy. Adam has represented children who have been in car accidents, boating accidents, truck accidents and been injured at restaurants. These cases are challenging… Read More

NFL Lawsuits & Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIS)

The NFL recently has been hit with hundreds of lawsuits by former players claim the NFL did not protect them enough from sustained Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). The big question in these lawsuits will be (a) what did the NFL know and (b) when did they know it? For example, if there is evidence that the NFL knew its players were likely to sustain brain injuries but did nothing to stop it from happening, the NFL could be found liable. The Loewy Law Firm has represented scores of clients who have sustained TBIs. A brain injury is without question one… Read More
