Auto Accidents

Over 200,000 people get hurt in Texas car accidents every year, with more crashes happening in Harris County than anywhere else. Our team has a record of success helping people who have suffered the most serious injuries in catastrophic wrecks in Houston.

Truck Accidents

A collision with an 18-wheeler is almost certain to end badly for the occupants of the other vehicle. These cases are costly, complex and hard-fought by the trucking companies and their insurance carriers. We are steadfast in our determination to win for our clients.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles make up one and a half percent of Texas motor vehicles yet account for over ten percent of all traffic deaths in the state. Injured riders and their families face an uphill battle getting justice and compensation. We level that playing field and more.

Offshore & Longshore Injuries

Longshoremen and workers on oil production platforms perform dangerous work, but if they get injured, they must face a confusing array of Texas and federal laws to find financial support for their medical bills and lost wages. We can help.

Refinery Explosions & Oilfield Accidents

Oil refining and production are some of the biggest, and most dangerous, industries in Houston and Corpus Christi. We help victims of explosions, fires, falls, and crushing accidents and more, and we hold negligent contractors and parties accountable.

Premises Liability

Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe and secure condition for the safety of their customers, visitors and guests. We hold property owners liable for injuries caused by dangers they knew about yet failed to promptly fix.

Defective Products

Manufacturers are strictly liable for harm when they put defective products on the market. We go after the largest automakers and consumer product manufacturers and hold them accountable for dangerous manufacturing, design and marketing defects.

Construction & Workplace Accidents

About one in five worker deaths happen in construction, but employees in every field get seriously hurt or worse at work. We represent injured workers hurt on the job by a non-subscribing employer’s negligence or the fault of a negligent third party.

Aviation Crashes

While only major commercial disasters make the evening news, private aircraft crash every day, and the results are just as horrific although the numbers are smaller. We navigate the unique set of complex federal laws necessary to get justice for our clients.

Houston Personal Injury Attorneys

Helping accident and injury victims recover compensation throughout the state of Texas

When you or a family member has been hurt or worse because of another party’s negligence, you find yourself facing a world of challenges and difficulties – extensive medical care (and extensive medical expenses), loss of income while you are out of work recovering or if you become disabled, intense and ongoing pain and suffering, and a complete disruption in your life and the lives of your loved ones. The Houston personal injury attorneys are here to help you through this difficult time and make things right. Our lawyers have devoted their careers to helping good people out of bad situations, and we are ready to use our skills, experience, resources and dedication to helping you too.

A Team of Litigators Who Know How to Get Results

Our client’s cases all begin the same way: the powerful corporation, insurance company or government versus an individual. We give a voice to those who have no voice, an army to those who have no troops and a winning strategy to those who have no plan. Our goal in every case is the same: we seek justice.

When you retain our firm, you engage a team of attorneys with a consummate set of skills and experience equal to any challenge. Our firm is comprised of a select group of seasoned trial attorneys. All of our attorneys are partners in the firm; we don’t assign your matter to an inexperienced junior associate. Our firm’s partners are deeply invested in you and the success of your case. We take our cases personally and the results speak for themselves.

Why Trial Lawyers for My Injury Case?

You may be hoping your case will settle without going to trial, so you might wonder, what’s the importance of hiring trial lawyers to represent me? It’s a fact that most cases settle without going to trial, and our firm’s cases are no exception. The difference in having a seasoned litigator represent you is apparent in the results you get.

The alternative to settlement is trial. When the insurance companies see they are dealing with experienced and successful trial attorneys who have taken the time and effort to prepare a strong case for trial, the insurers are more inclined to settle for a fair amount rather than have to face a jury against a seasoned and trial-ready team of litigators. Injury victims who don’t have an attorney, or whose lawyer does not try cases, simply don’t get as good of results.

Our attorneys include civil and criminal law litigators who have gone to court countless times and are at home in the courtroom and very comfortable in front of a jury. Scott McLemore leads the civil cases at our firm, supported by David Reddell and Jim Story. Scott has handled numerous cases involving catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death, from car wrecks and trucking accidents to offshore commercial diving and oilfield injuries. David and Jim are former criminal prosecutors and practicing criminal defense attorneys who have handled dozens of felony jury trials. They bring their legal acumen and trial strategy to bear on behalf of injury victims for the firm. Of counsel to the firm, Jack Hunter rounds out our team as a sounding board on case strategy and complex matters, with wisdom drawn from 20 years of experience as a District Court Judge presiding over thousands of personal injury matters.

Together, we start litigating and building your case from day one. When your case is ready to settle, we have the facts and law lined up to secure a great result, and if the case doesn’t settle, we are ready to try your case in the Harris County courts, in Corpus Christi, and throughout Texas.

No Recovery, No Fee

We take all personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. We don’t charge any fees upfront; we get paid at the end of the case out of the settlement or jury verdict we obtain for you. If we can’t get any compensation for you, then you don’t owe us any fees. Our firm takes all the risk because we believe in you and feel strongly that anyone with a serious injury claim should get top-notch legal representation regardless of their ability to afford a lawyer.
