"Eminent Domain" is the inherent power of the government to take private property for public use. "Condemnation" is the legal process the government uses to take your property. Although the government, and utilities in certain cases, have this right, the U.S. and Texas constitutions guarantee that landowners must receive just compensation for their property.

Pursuing a legal case for wrongful death of a loved one can be complicated and expensive.  But pursing the claim is necessary to recover for damages to those left behind and to protect their economic future.  And in some cases it can give meaning to the loss by preventing the same fate from happening to someone else.

Helping Texas Landowners and Personal Injury Victims

It is surprising and upsetting to learn the government wants to use the power of eminent domain to take your land for a public project. Insuring you receive full compensation can be time consuming and complicated.

Being injured in an accident is also frightening and stressful. Deciding what to do afterward can be exhausting and confusing. The legal process seems intimidating and every accident case is different.

At the Todd Law Firm, we believe more information helps you worry less and make smarter choices to protect your rights.
