Personal Injury Cases We Can Help You With

Personal injury cases often happen due to someone else’s negligence, which can result in severe accidents. They can happen at work, at home, in a hospital, or in a public space. Its consequences

Common personal injuries include:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Workplace injuries
  • Product liability
  • Premise liability
  • Dog bites

In Texas, the law starts counting the time limit you have available to file a personal injury lawsuit at the time of the accident. This is why we recommend you reach out to us as early as possible after receiving immediate medical care. We can help you gather all necessary information including medical records, fill out the paperwork accurately, and identify the potentially liable parties. This helps us create an effective strategy to pursue compensation for you.

As part of our investigation process, we can:

  • Check the accident scene
  • Speak to witnesses
  • Review police reports
  • Consult with relevant experts

Our first step is to negotiate with insurance companies to reach an adequate settlement to cover your medical expenses, any lost income due to medical leave, and compensation for the traumatic experience.

If we cannot reach a suitable agreement with the insurance company, we can move forward with the formal process of litigation. We are committed to advocating for your rights and future.

Personal injury litigation involves:

  • Complaint filing
  • Complaint serving
  • Pre-trial motions filing
  • Trial
  • Verdict

If the insurance company does not abide by the compensation requested by the judge, we can take additional steps for the court to enforce the judgment. If you or the defendant believes that the judge made mistakes during the trial process, you can appeal the court ruling.
