Personal Injury & Accidents

A serious injury accident can turn your life upside down in an instant. Not only are victims often forced to deal with pain, disability, disfigurement, and other physical hardships, but they often struggle to stay afloat financially as well. If the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, you should never have to pay the price for their poor decisions. You have the right to seek compensation for your injuries, and the attorneys at Williams Hart believe that you are entitled to qualified, honest, and compassionate legal representation. Our team of lawyers does more than try and settle personal injury cases in Houston. We help individuals and their families seek compensation that will let them put the accident behind them.

We go above and beyond for our clients, treating everyone as we would want to be treated. Our goal is to ensure that you understand your rights, feel confident throughout the process, and seek the fair compensation your claim deserves. We are committed to seeing your case through to the end.

How our lawyers can help

If you’ve been hurt in a serious injury accident, there is no amount of money that can turn back the clock and undo the pain and suffering that you’ve endured. Fortunately, the law ensures that those who’ve been hurt due to the recklessness or carelessness of others do have the option to pursue justice.

That's where an experienced personal injury attorney is valuable. While you might be tempted to seek justice and compensation on your own, doing so can be difficult, if not impossible. You’ll be up against insurance companies and their teams of lawyers who do nothing BUT fight these claims. By hiring a personal injury lawyer who is well-versed in the tactics and tricks that insurance companies will use to underpay or deny payment to those who’ve been wrongly injured, you can rest easier knowing that you’ve got an experienced advocate fighting for you.

The process of hiring an attorney begins with a free and confidential consultation. Your dedicated Williams Hart attorney will ask you about the accident, including the location, date, parties involved, the injuries you suffered, and the expenses you’ve incurred. Any documentation you can bring to the meeting, including medical bills, property damage estimates, photos of the scene, and other important evidence will be helpful for this discussion.

If you have a qualified case and you decide to hire us to represent you, you can the peace of mind that our team will be there to support you, and we’ll be there to keep you updated on your case and answer any questions you might have.

Once you become a client of Williams Hart, our team will handle every single aspect of your case. We’ll conduct a thorough investigation of the accident, collect all the vital evidence needed, and identify the responsible parties. We’ll consult with medical and financial experts to determine the extent of your injuries and the actual financial impact they’ll have on your life, not just now, but in the future as well.

During the process, our team will cover all of the costs of representing you. You won’t pay anything unless we win your case.

Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions

Every state has its own statute of limitations on injury claims after which the court will be barred from hearing the case. In Texas, people who have been hurt due to the negligence of others have two years to file. While this may seem like a long time, keep in mind that building a strong case requires a thorough investigation, settlement negotiations, and other lengthy work, so it is crucial to hire an attorney as soon as possible so that time does not run out if you ultimately need to file a lawsuit to get compensation.

Texas follows a modified comparative negligence doctrine when it comes to determining liability for an accident. This means that in Texas, you can file an injury claim even if you were partly responsible for the accident that caused your injuries, as long as your portion of negligence is not greater than the defendant’s.

Take, for example, a rear-end collision in which your vehicle was hit from behind by a driver who was speeding. If one of your rear brake lights was out at the time of the crash, the court may determine that you were 20% at fault for the crash (for not having two fully-functional taillights) and the other party was 80% at fault for the crash, for speeding and not obeying the rules of the road.

Because you were 20% at fault for the crash, your ultimate damage award will be reduced by that percentage. If you were awarded $80,000, you would be eligible to recover $60,000 under the comparative negligence doctrine.

Because the circumstances surrounding every accident are different, the types and amount of compensation will vary. In general, accident victims could be eligible to recover compensation for:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future wages and opportunities
  • Travel costs for medical care
  • Replacement or repairs to damaged property
  • Loss of household services
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain, post-traumatic stress, and mental anguish

This list is not all-inclusive, and only a qualified personal injury attorney can tell you what you are owed and what your case is worth. Contact a Houston injury attorney today to discuss the specifics of your case.
