Personal Injury Lawyer in Laredo, TX 

When you or someone you love has been injured because another person or organization was negligent, you have the right to be compensated. Moreover, the quality of your financial future may well depend on getting a fair settlement.

At Cardenas & Rodriguez, we always fight for our clients. From our office in Laredo, we serve clients in all of Webb and La Salle County, and throughout the state of Texas. 

Litigation Is in Our DNA

In an ideal world, the defendant’s insurance company would simply pay out a fair settlement and the entire matter could be settled in negotiations. And a negotiated settlement is always our preference. But an even bigger priority is a fair and equitable settlement that makes our clients whole after all they have suffered. We’re prepared to go to court and we know how to fight and win when we can make our case in front of a judge and jury. We aren’t afraid of the battle and insurance companies know it. Let us protect you.

The 4 Principles of Negligence

To win a financial settlement, the injured plaintiff must demonstrate that the defendant was negligent. There are four components of negligence, and all four must be proven by the plaintiff’s Laredo personal injury attorney. 

Duty of Care

Duty of care refers to the legal obligation an individual or entity has to avoid causing harm to others. For example, a commercial construction general contractor has a duty of care to maintain a safe working environment for their employees and subcontractors. They also have a duty to ensure the building's design meets quality and safety standards. This is just one example and it’s the kind of issue that may arise in a wrongful death case. A duty of care must be present to prove negligence. 

Breach of Duty

Breach of duty occurs when an individual or entity fails to fulfill their duty of care. It has to be emphasized that breach is only evident if the defendant failed to act as a reasonable person would have given the circumstances. For example, the simple fact of a car accident does not, by itself constitute a breach of duty if the defendant was driving reasonably. But if that same defendant was driving 40mph through a school zone, then a breach of duty can be established. 


Causation refers to the connection between the breach of duty and the resulting harm or injury. In other words, it must be demonstrated that the defendant's breach of duty caused the plaintiff's harm or injury. An example here might be a plaintiff who is in an oilfield accident and suffers a back injury. But what if there was a pre-existing medical condition? The defendant—or, more accurately, the defendant’s insurance company—will likely do considerable medical research seeking to sever the causation link. Plaintiffs need a Laredo personal injury lawyer who knows how to fight back and protect the interests of their clients. 


Damages refer to the losses or harm suffered by the plaintiff as a result of the defendant's breach of duty. This can include both economic and non-economic damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. To establish damages, it must be demonstrated that the plaintiff suffered actual harm or loss as a direct result of the first three steps discussed above.
