Personal injuries are just that — damages caused to you or your family personally. The damage can be to your body, mind or even your emotional state. Medical expenses and lost wages are considered damages in these cases, but those damages only can be recovered if fault or liability has been established by adequate and appropriate evidence. That is why it is so critical to work with an experienced personal injury lawyer who knows how to best collect the evidence and preserve that evidence in the appropriate form before it becomes lost or forgotten.

A wrongful death is when a person has died due to someone else’s mistakes or negligence and they would not have died otherwise. Wrongful deaths should never happen. They can be caused by many things, including car accidents, 18-wheeler collisions, worksite accidents, airline crashes, defective products, and faulty construction/wiring.
We have extensive experience winning these cases. Having a loved one die from such an event is devastating. We help take that burden off your shoulders. We review details of the incident quickly and efficiently to determine if there is a legitimate case and then provide you with careful and compassionate representation. (more)
Since our firm was founded, we have handled scores of accidents involving buses, 18-wheelers, and other big trucks. In fact, we are known nationally as experts in this area.
If you or a loved one is involved in a serious trucking accident, then you deserve to be compensated for your pain and suffering and for any other losses you may be facing. In most cases, this compensation is more than what the responsible person’s insurance will pay. We know how to identify all the key players and hold them accountable.
In each case, our goal is the same: to secure the proper financial recovery for the victims or their families and to push trucking companies to institute operational changes in order to make the roads safer for all of us. (more)
If you or a family member suffered injuries in a car accident that you didn’t cause, then you may be entitled to compensation. The same may be true if a car wreck damaged your property.

It is critically important that we help you secure the proper evidence following a motor vehicle accident before it becomes lost or forgotten. (more)
Texas law does not require employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance. As a result, construction accidents in this state fall into two categories – those that are covered by workers’ compensation insurance and those that are not. Even employers who do not carry this insurance have a responsibility to keep workers and the public safe in and around their businesses and worksites.
In some cases, parties other than the immediate employer may be held responsible, and, if a particular job site or responsible party has had repeat violations, or the situation is deemed to be putting people at grave risk, then additional damages may be awarded.
Once you ask us to represent you, we will conduct a thorough investigation to determine the cause of the accident and appropriate compensation amounts; negotiate with the responsible parties and/or insurance companies, and represent you in court. (more)
A successful defective product case must show one of three things: a manufacturing defect, a defect in the design of the product, or a “failure to warn.”
Victims of defective products and/or their families often are able to recover substantial damages for pain and suffering, medical bills and lost wages. Sometimes these cases end up in court; other cases settle without going to trial.
We have experience in both. We know how to be effective before judges and juries and, if a settlement is possible, how to advocate for you with the responsible parties and their insurance companies to get you the compensation you deserve.(more)
Texas also has the largest number of oil and gas-related injuries and deaths in the U.S. Many of these accidents are preventable. In fact, a Bureau of Labor Statistics report showed that 78 percent of the fatal oil and gas industry accidents in Texas from 2008-2012 involved safety violations.
If you or a loved one was injured or killed in an oil or gas industry accident, then you should seek legal help. We have years of experience handling these cases. Our job is to ensure you obtain the appropriate amount of compensation.
You don’t have to be an oil or gas field worker to seek redress, though. If you are injured or your property is damaged as a result of a pipeline explosion, oil spill or other oil/gas-related accident, please contact us so we can explain your options.(more)
