With more than a decade of experience and 12,000 satisfied clients, we offer the professional legal guidance you need. To help you get the process started, consider the following frequently asked questions that our attorneys see most often:

What damages can I sue for after a construction accident in Houston?

Damages often begin with immediate medical bills, such as emergency surgery or an ambulance ride. You also need to consider long-term health care costs like rehabilitation and lost wages. Our legal team can help you determine exactly which costs apply in your case as we strive to maximize your compensation.

What’s a third-party lawsuit in a construction accident? Who can I sue?

A third-party lawsuit is when someone else – other than the employer – is responsible for the injuries. For instance, a worker may suffer injuries due to a poorly designed or faulty power tool – and then sue the manufacturer.

Why do I need a lawyer in Houston after a construction injury?

These cases can be incredibly complex, so it helps to have an experienced lawyer to guide you through the process and present evidence to back up your claims. Additionally, if you have severe injuries, you may have a lot of money on the line – such as future earnings and your long-term earning capacity. You deserve legal assistance as you seek to protect your financial future.

How long do I have to make a claim after a construction accident in Texas?

Texas law sets a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury cases. If you were injured, your two years start on the day of the accident or as soon as you are aware of your injuries – an important distinction with delayed or hidden symptoms.
