Accidents never happen at a convenient time. That’s why we answer the phone 24 hours a day. No matter when you need a personal injury attorney, we are here for you!

While we represent clients with a vast range of injuries caused by someone else, we do have several practice areas in which we have a particular focus. These include:

Car Accidents: If property damage, injuries or death, DUI, or an uninsured driver is involved, legal representation is essential. Both property damage and injuries can be more extensive than they appear, and insurance companies are eager to settle for as little as possible. In addition, Texas is a comparative negligence state, so the other party will be motivated to raise your at-fault percentage as high as possible to reduce your claim. We have both the legal knowledge and the objectivity to evaluate your case and fight for every dollar you deserve.

Truck Accidents (18-wheeler): Truck accidents can be both more devastating and more complex than car accidents. You need an attorney who knows how to negotiate with multiple parties, from trucking companies to truck manufacturers, and how to determine whether the driver followed all FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) guidelines.

Commercial Vehicle Accidents: Like truck accidents, commercial vehicle accidents typically involve numerous parties, often across state lines. We know how to get to the bottom of who played what role in contributing to the accident, and how to protect your rights.

Slip and Fall – Premises Liability: Comparative negligence guidelines are especially complex in slip and fall accidents. There are many questions that must be answered, from whether the property owner should have known of the hazard to whether your footwear was appropriate for the conditions. You need an experienced lawyer to guide you through the process.

Dog Bites: Texas has a “one bite rule.” To pursue a claim, you must prove that the owner knew the dog was aggressive or had previously bitten someone, or that the owner’s negligence in controlling the dog caused your injuries. Proving these facts can be complex, so you need the guidance of an experienced attorney.

Third Party Work Related Injuries: A third party work related injury occurs when someone who does not work for your company injures you while you are on the job. A common example is a car accident in the company car. The accident is work related, since you were on the job, but the driver who hit you has nothing to do with your employer. Special guidelines apply to these cases, and an experienced attorney will ensure that everything is properly filed.

Traumatic Brain Injuries: A traumatic brain injury is a catastrophic injury that will change your life forever. Putting a dollar value on this type of claim involves a complex mix of different types of damages, from lifelong medical care to loss of quality of life. A skilled personal injury attorney will work through the process, consulting with experts as needed, to ensure a fair settlement.
