We Understand Insurance Claims and Liability Laws
Most personal injury cases involve complicated legal and medical terms, procedures, and paperwork. You may not be feeling well enough to tackle this process alone, especially if your injuries require surgery, hospitalization, or a lengthy recuperation period. We understand you may be angry or frustrated about the accident, your injuries and any financial losses.
Our first task will be to examine the circumstances that led to your accident. This process typically includes:
- Reviewing police reports, witness statements, and any other accounts, photographs, or videos of the accident.
- Evaluating your injuries based on professional medical opinions and reports.
- Compiling all your expenses and losses, such as medical bills, car repair or rental, property damage, and other related costs.
- Reconstructing the accident if necessary.
A key step in this process is determining who is liable for the accident.
How We Determine Liability
We determine liability based on four factors:
- Did the other party have a duty of care to avoid the accident with prudent or reasonable action?
- Was there a breach in this duty of care, thus allowing the accident to occur?
- Were you injured because of the accident?
- Do you have damages such as medical bills or lost wages?
Getting You the Compensation You Might Be Entitled to Receive
Our personal injury lawyers in Galveston, TX understand that the combination of unexpected medical bills and lost time at work is stressful. You should know that the first settlement amount offered by the insurance company is typically low. We will negotiate an acceptable amount, based on the severity of your injuries, your expenses, and your expected prognosis, according to your healthcare professional.
Our goal is to maximize your potential compensation for such damages, including:
- Medical bills, including ongoing treatment, therapy, or medication
- Lost income
- Temporary or permanent decrease in earning ability
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
Please note that these are the most common types of damages. You may have different damages depending on your circumstances. To see if you qualify for compensation, please call our firm at (713) 850-8600 for a free case evaluation.

We Negotiate With the Insurance Company for the Best Possible Outcome
