By remaining open minded, compassionate, and continuously upholding our positive outcome rate, we will do all that we can to assist you in any of the following personal injury cases:


Auto (Car) Accidents

Car accidents are the most common vehicles involved in accidents due to their large share of all registered vehicles in the state. A car traveling at high speeds can result in serious physical injuries and/or damage to property when involved in an accident.

Bus Accidents

Buses are one of the most common public transportation people take in Texas. However, because of their design—huge size, crowded with people, and lack of seatbelts—they pose a large risk for injury when involved in an accident.

18-Wheeler Accidents

Commercial truck and 18-wheeler accidents are unfortunately frequent occurrences on Texas’s busy highways. Due to their size and heavy load, accidents involving 18-Wheeler trucks can be very grave, if not fatal.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles need to maintain a certain speed to remain upright and as such are prone to serious crashes due to even the slightest contact with other vehicles. They also tend to swerve across lanes and weave through traffic, sometimes resulting in collisions with pedestrians on busy streets.


Chemical & Oil Plant Accident and Explosion

Working in a chemical plant, oil refinery, or industrial factory carries with it inherent risks due to its proximity to volatile chemicals and large industrial equipment. To help protect workers in these industries, OSHA has set requirements and guidelines that should be strictly followed before industrial plants can operate.

Asbestos & Mesothelioma Lawyer

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer affecting the lining of our lungs that is typically linked to asbestos exposure. If you or anyone you know suffers from symptoms of Mesothelioma and was exposed to asbestos, then a lawsuit can be filed.


Wrongful Death

A wrongful death claim may be last on the list of things surviving family members have on their mind. Aside from the compensation that can offset the financial difficulties arising from the said death, wrongful death claims can ensure that future similar fatal events are prevented.


Product Liability

Product liability claims ensure that companies only release products that are functional, safe to use, and come with instructions for proper and safe operation. If any of these principles are violated, then a product liability lawsuit can be filed.

Class Action Lawsuits

This is a type of lawsuit brought by multiple plaintiffs who have suffered similar harm through an entity’s negligence. An individual suit against a large corporation for damages may be daunting due to a gap in available resources, but this can be offset by filing a class action lawsuit with other plaintiffs.

Defective Pharmaceuticals

We trust that we will get better from our sickness when we follow our doctors’ orders and take the medicines they prescribe. Unfortunately, this may not always be the case for defective pharmaceuticals, where symptoms may get worse or increase. 

Worker’s Compensation

Employees injured in the workplace are entitled to medical benefits and income benefits, which are facilitated by workers' compensation insurance. In cases where no such insurance system is in place, employees injured in the workplace have to file a case to access the same benefits.
