Bush Lewis, P.L.L.C.
Bush Lewis, P.L.L.C. , continues its 35+ year commitment to putting our clients first and to fighting for the rights of personal injury victims and their families. Our commitment remains firm despite continuing efforts of major corporations, big insurance companies, ambitious politicians, and other special interests to pass new laws to limit the American constitutional right to trial by jury.Confidentiality
You will notice that nowhere in our website or in any other of our marketing efforts do we ever invade the privacy of our clients by identifying them with any of our results, using any photographs of them, or revealing the names of our clients. Our Beaumont personal injury lawyers and staff are committed to the time-honored legal principle of confidentiality. We consider ourselves bound by the ethics of our profession which prohibit us from revealing outside of litigation any of the confidences a client shares with us about his or her case or personal life. Unless required to reveal such information in litigation, we never tell anyone those things you share with your lawyers or our staff that you expect to be kept confidential. We do not hold news conferences to talk about our clients’ cases. Our role is to represent and protect our clients, not provide news stories or publicity for our law firm.

Mass Torts in Texas
Mass torts are those personal injuries to many individuals caused by the same disastrous event or defective product. The 1977 and 1982 Texaco refinery explosions in Port Arthur, Texas, are an example of a mass tort event in which many people were injured or killed in a single man-made disaster. The Fen-Phen heart valve injuries to tens of thousands of Americans from the use of the diet drugs Pondimin and Redux in the 1990s, the millions of lung injuries, cancer and death from exposure to asbestos particles throughout the 20th Century, the numerous strokes and heart attacks from use of diet supplements or weight loss products containing ephedra, and environmental cancers caused by pollutants are just a few of the many types of mass torts relating to a defective product. Our lawyers have been involved in representing clients in some of the major mass torts for the last 30 years. Our mass torts clients have had cases relating to refinery explosions (including both the 1977 and 1982 explosions at the Port Arthur Texaco refinery), drilling platform disasters, home and apartment fires, toxic fume releases, toxic spills, asbestos and chemical exposures, and pharmaceutical and medical device injuries from Vitek TMJ joint replacements, breast implants, Fen-Phen, artificial joints (including Sulzer hip joints), swine flu vaccine, Dalkon shield IUDs, Propulsid, Rezulin, and Norplant birth control implants.Individual Attention to Mass Tort Clients
In handling all of our mass tort cases, our lawyers have remained committed to treating each client individually and have fought against mass settlements. We are committed to the individual evaluation of each client's personal injury claim. We at Bush Lewis remain strongly opposed to settlement payments to people who have no injury resulting from exposure to or use of a defective product. Frivolous lawsuits are not part of our law practice. Our experience and belief has been that personal injury class action mass settlements more often benefit lawyers and those claimants not having serious injuries rather than the victims having serious personal injury claims. The lawyers at Bush Lewis in Beaumont, Texas consider each client an individual whose case should be individually handled by our law firm. We try to provide each of our clients in a mass tort case with the benefits of the economy of scale and efficiency that is gained by having more than a single client in a mass tort without the detriment that comes from failing to give the individual client the individualized attention to which each client should be entitled. We work with other lawyers nationwide who share this commitment to their mass tort clients to assure the best results possible for our clients who happen to be part of a mass tort. Every mass tort victim is entitled to this kind of legal representation and should insist upon it.Time Limits
All personal injury and wrongful death cases are governed by a statute of limitations. A statute of limitations is a specific time period following the injury within which a lawsuit must be filed in court or the claim will not be allowed. The statute of limitations for most personal injury and wrongful death cases in Texas is two years from the date the injury occurs. What does this mean for you and your case? If you or a loved one has been injured, it is important not to delay in seeking legal help. If you wait too long, you may be denied your legal compensation. To learn more about the statute of limitations in Texas and how it may apply to your personal injury case, please contact the personal injury lawyers at Bush Lewis today!
