How Our Houston Personal Injury Lawyers Help Individuals Across Texas

Our Houston personal injury law firm represents clients who have suffered injuries from accidents, such as truck accidents, car wrecks, work-related injuries, and more. We understand the physical, emotional and financial strain that comes with an unexpected accident. That is why we take pride in providing our clients with personalized legal representation tailored to their specific needs. Our Houston injury lawyers can:
  • Investigate the accident and gathering evidence to prove negligence, such as medical records, police reports, statements from witnesses or experts.
  • File a personal injury claim on behalf of the injured individual and submit required paperwork to the court.
  • Negotiate with insurance companies or other parties involved in order to reach a fair settlement.
  • Represent clients in court if negotiations fail.
  • Advise clients about their rights throughout the legal process.
  • Keep track of important deadlines and file documents on time.
  • Assess damages suffered by an injured person due to another’s negligence.
  • Calculate how much compensation is appropriate for each case based on these damages.
  • Protect clients from unfair settlements or lowball offers from insurers.
  • Ensure that all legal steps are taken correctly, so a client has the best chance of receiving maximum compensation.

If you were injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We are prepared to aggressively advocate on your behalf and make sure that any settlement or verdict is fair and just.

What if you are partly at fault for your crash?
Texas uses what is known as a modified comparative fault system for car accident claims. With modified comparative fault, a person could seek compensation for damages caused by the car accident even if they were partly at fault. However, the amount of compensation will be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to the victim. In Texas, you are eligible for compensation as long as you were less than 51% at fault for the car accident. However, if you shared part of the blame, your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault. For instance, if your damages totaled $100,000, but you were found to be 40% at fault, your damages would be reduced by 40%, or $40,000. Thus, you would be entitled to $60,000.
What if the other driver doesn’t have insurance?
If an uninsured driver crashes into you, you won’t be able to file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. However, you may have other options for recovery. You may be able to hold the at-fault driver responsible for your damages without insurance. Your attorney can investigate the at-fault driver and see if any outlets for recovery exist. For instance, the driver’s employer could be liable for your accident if the driver was on-duty at the time of the crash. An experienced lawyer will also review your own insurance policy to see whether you may be entitled to file a claim under your uninsured motorist coverage.
How much does it cost to hire a lawyer?
Like most personal injury cases, in car accident cases, lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. This means the attorney recovers no fees if you do not obtain a favorable settlement or verdict. You owe nothing upfront. The car accident lawyer will get a percentage of your settlement or award as the attorney fee.
How long does it take to settle a car insurance claim?
The length of time that any car accident claim will take depends on several factors, including the severity of your injuries, the extent of your losses, and whether liability for the accident is being contested. If the other driver doesn’t challenge their liability for the crash, and if your losses can be calculated at an early stage, it can take as little as a few weeks to settle your car insurance claim. However, if you will need long-term treatment and recovery, or if the other driver contests liability or argues for your partial or total fault for the accident, it can take many more months to reach a mutually acceptable settlement of your claim. This is especially true if your claim ends up in court or eventually goes all the way to trial.
How much will a settlement for my car accident be?
The size of a car accident settlement will depend on the severity of your injuries and the policy limits of insurance, among other factors. When you’ve suffered more serious injuries, you will likely require more extensive—and, therefore, more expensive—medical treatment. You may also miss time from work, missing out on income and facing lost earning capacity for the future. A car accident settlement should compensate you for these losses. In addition, when you’ve suffered more serious injuries, you have a stronger claim to compensation for personal losses, such as pain and suffering or lost quality of life. All of this can greatly increase the size of a settlement.
Is Texas a no-fault state?
A “no-fault” state refers to those states where drivers are required to have “personal injury protection” (PIP) or medical payment (MedPay) coverage as part of their auto insurance policy. When drivers get into an accident, they are expected to first look to their own policy’s PIP or MedPay coverage. These policy benefits cover compensation for medical expenses or lost wages even before a claim is filed with the driver at fault for the accident. In addition, in many no-fault states, an accident victim’s ability to pursue compensation for pain and suffering may be limited. However, Texas is considered an at-fault state, meaning that car accident victims may look to the at-fault party to pay for the full extent of financial and personal losses, including pain and suffering.
What is the car accident statute of limitations?
Texas’s statute of limitations on car accident claims typically requires you to file suit within two years of the date of the accident. This can be stretched in certain circumstances, such as for minor children injured in car accidents, or if the at-fault driver commits a hit-and-run or leaves the state of Texas during the two-year limitations period.
What is comparative negligence?
Comparative negligence is a legal concept that states that an injured accident victim is not prevented from claiming compensation just because they bear a portion of the fault for the accident. However, a partially at-fault injured accident victim will have their compensation reduced in proportion to their share of fault. Texas uses a modified comparative negligence rule, which only bars an injured accident victim from pursuing a legal claim if the victim bears more than 50 percent of the fault for his or her injuries.
