An American is accidentally injured every second, according to the National Safety Council (NSC). Every three minutes, a person loses his or her life from accidental injuries. Tragically, most of these injuries are preventable.
If you or a family member were injured (or passed away) because of someone’s reckless act, you could be entitled to seek financial recovery from the at-fault party. You should know that Texas has a statute of limitations of just two years to file a personal injury lawsuit.
Please do not bypass the opportunity to pursue justice against the at-fault party in your accident. Call D. Miller & Associates, PLLC for a free case evaluation today at (713) 850-8600.

Our Process for Helping You Recover Damages
Texas liability laws require that certain conditions are met to pursue recovery:
- The at-fault party has a duty of care to take reasonable action to avoid harming you.
- The at-fault party did not uphold this duty.
- This breach of duty caused you harm.
- You suffered due to your injury.
If D. Miller & Associates, PLLC can show that the other party was negligent and caused your injuries, we can pursue recovery on your behalf.
Many Personal Injury Cases Are Settled Out of Court
A personal injury lawyer will seek financial recovery first from the other party’s insurance coverage.
