    Filing a personal injury claim is about much more than simply seeking compensation: It’s about getting peace of mind. As founder of Rush & Gransee, Robert L. Rush is keenly aware of the difficult circumstances clients are in as they deal with the repercussions of events involving medical malpractice, construction accidents, defective products and motor vehicle accidents. As an advocate for people in San Antonio, Texas, he handles the full spectrum of personal injury law, including the following: brain, burn, birth, newborn, electrical, oil field, spinal cord and hospital injuries; nursing home negligence, dental malpractice, cancer misdiagnosis, hospital infections, pharmacy errors and defective medical devices and drugs; sexual exploitation, including that done by counselors and clergy; wrongful death; and insurance disputes.

    With experience in state and federal courts, Mr. Rush is prepared to take anyone — from individuals to large corporations — to trial. His goal is to see to it that negligent parties pay for the damages they have caused, including physical harm, emotional distress and future financial losses.
