Representing Injured Texans

If you or a loved one was injured in an accident caused by the negligence of another person or company, you might be eligible to recover monetary compensation. As experienced personal injury attorneys, we will listen to the facts of your case and provide an honest assessment of your legal options.

In a personal injury case, the accident victim — known as the plaintiff — accuses the defendant of negligence, which resulted in the injuries he or she has suffered. The defendant can be another person, a business, corporation or government agency. In a civil lawsuit, the plaintiff must present his or her own evidence to build a case. In doing so, the assistance of a personal injury lawyer is vital. The time period in which the plaintiff can file a lawsuit is usually limited. This time period, known as the statute of limitations, varies from state to state and depends on the type of injury. The statute of limitations begins when the injury was discovered.
