Negligence Claims in Texas and Arkansas
Texarkana Personal Injury & Negligence Attorneys
There can be many areas of life where the negligence and negligence claims may be an issue. One thing they have in common however, is that the basis of the claim is the same-the damages incurred (be they physical, monetary or having to do with property) all came about because a person, group or business did not take the reasonable precautions to avoid or prevent such damages. That is what must be proven in a court of law- the direct connection between what was not done that should have been done. Or, what should have been done but was not done – and what are the ill effects because of those specific actions or non-actions.
These connections are sometimes difficult to prove even if they are true…because the other side wants to cloud the issue in their favor and will do all they can to try to convince a judge or jury that there were other reasons for the damages done. That is why, if you think you may have a negligence case of any sort, it is wise to seek an experienced attorney who knows negligence law. The Texarkana injury attorneys at Langdon Davis have represented many Texarkana residents in their negligence cases, with outstanding results.
Examples of Negligence Claims in Texarkana
Negligence can take place in a variety of places and ways. An example of negligence might be when a person slips and falls in an aisle of a grocery store where a bottle of cooking oil may have spilled earlier and it was not properly cleaned up and there were no signs regarding caution, nor was the area blocked off. Another area of negligence often seen is in the area of hospitals, medical staff procedures and prescriptions. For instance, if a patient is prescribed a medication to which they are allergic and that patient had properly informed the prescribing physician of that fact, prior, that also may be considered negligence.
If a manufacturer delivers a product that is known to cause damage or injury or a distributor delivers a product known by them to have a defect, which could cause harm, even if operated properly it can be considered negligence. When an employer jeopardizes the safety of their workers by having then unknowingly work with hazardous materials or using unsafe equipment, or not training their employees properly for the job, all of these scenarios may be the basis of a legal negligence claim. If a motorist becomes disoriented and starts to drive the wrong way on the highway and causes personal injury to another, that can be considered negligence as well.

Brent Langdon is the most effecient and professional attorney I have had the pleasure to work with.- Former Client
He was tough with negotiations. At the end of the day he was able to get a deal that wasn’t only fair for me but for my child. After hiring a less than average attorney I realized quick you get what you pay for, I then hired Brent . Brent is expensive but hes good, fair and honest. I’d recommend Brent to anyone in Arkansas or Texas.- Former Client
I have to say, when I hired Brent Langdon in November 2013, I was a very hopeless, desperate person. My daughter had been turned over to her father when I did not show up for a court date. I was not properly notified of a court date by him nor his attorney. So, I decided, "I'm tired of this. I'm going to find the best lawyer I can find." So I went to Langdon Davis. Initially, I was there to see Demaris Hart. However, she was not there at that time (I did not have an appointment with her, I just walked in the office). I spoke with the woman at the front desk about meeting with Demaris, and she said she was not there at that time but there was another attorney who I could talk with about my case. I went back and spoke with Brent about my situation and he said he'd take it on. A few months later, we had a court date and got the order my ex filed overturned. My ex has consistently given me problems since then, though. We have been in and out of the court room from day one, with him trying to take our daughter away from me. Brent Langdon has stuck by my side through every bit of it. Not to discredit Demaris whatsoever by this statement, I have read her profile and know she is a great attorney also, but I am SO glad I hired Brent. That was the best decision I have ever made. This man has LOYALLY stayed by my side through all of this litigation. He has fought for me and my daughter from day one. And I'm glad to say, last week we won our case. If you are looking for an attorney to help you, guide you, be prepared for your case without any worry on your end, and most importantly FIGHT for you, this is your lawyer. Trust me. You will see the passion he has, and the incredible law knowledge he has studied 25+ years for. Respectfully submitted, A PROUD Brent Langdon client
