Humble Personal Injury Attorney
Very few things turn life upside-down more quickly, or more completely, than a car wreck or other serious personal injury. Victims must deal with a huge pile of bills at the same time they are unable to work. The physical and emotional pain and suffering makes the situation worse. During this time, insurance adjusters usually bombard victims with settlement offers. But there is no way to know if these offers are fair.
The compassionate Humble personal injury attorneys at the West Law Office understand what you are going through. So, we work hard to obtain compensation and justice for your serious injuries. Compensation usually means money for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering. Justice is especially important in situations like bus accidents. If negligent companies do not change the way they do business, other people get hurt.
Matters We Handle
Personal injuries come in many forms, but they all have one thing in common. A moment of carelessness could cause serious injury. At the West Law Office, we believe that people should be responsible for their mistakes, particularly if the mistake hurts someone else. Therefore, we handle a diverse array of personal injury claims, including:
- Car Crashes: Vehicle collisions kill or seriously injure millions of Americans every year. Driver error causes over 90 percent of these wrecks. That error could be driver impairment, such as alcohol intoxication, or a traffic violation, like speeding.
- Dog Bites: Texas law is very favorable toward animal attack victims. That’s a good thing, because these attacks often cause severe emotional and physical injuries. For this reason, the average dog bite settlement has increased significantly in recent years.
- Truck Accidents: Generally, these incidents are much more serious, and much more complex, than car wrecks. Large trucks weigh over 80,000 pounds, so the force in a wreck is almost indescribable. Furthermore, an out-of-state shipping or transportation company generally owned the truck.
- Falls: Broken bones and head injuries are just some of the wounds that a slip-and-fall often causes. To obtain compensation, victim/plaintiffs must prove the owner had a legal duty and the owner knew, or should have known, about the hazardous condition.
Most of these claims settle out of court. But at the West Law Office, we never look for the easy way out. Our attorneys are strong litigators and skilled negotiators. So, we stand up for you in the courtroom and at the negotiating table.
According to popular myth, collecting evidence in a personal injury claim is always easy. But very few things are “always easy.”
The police incident report is a good example. First responders do the best they can with the available evidence. But not all proof is immediately available, and even the most experienced emergency responders are not accident reconstruction professionals.
Therefore, these reports often have some gaps. That’s especially true if the victim was killed or too seriously injured to give a statement. In these cases, the incident report only reflects one side of the story.
The Humble personal injury lawyers at the West Law Office know how to build effective cases from the ground up. We often partner with private investigators to review other evidence, such as surveillance video footage, and find witnesses that first responders overlooked for some reason.
