Meet the Attorneys

A serious accident can shatter your life in the blink of an eye.

Maybe you were working on an offshore drilling rig and a piece of heavy equipment failed, or a fire broke out at a refinery or chemical plant. Maybe you were the victim of a truck driver who was overtired or just not paying attention and collided with your vehicle. Regardless of the type of accident, a catastrophic injury can affect your life for years — perhaps even permanently.

You may need extensive — and expensive — medical treatments to heal your body and your mind after a serious accident. Even after you recover, you may suffer a physical limitation or chronic pain that damages your career and your ability to earn money to support yourself or your family. You may feel enormous amounts of stress because of how your injury affects your life, your job, and your relationships.

When this happens, you may not know where to turn or what your options are. The personal injury and Houston maritime accident attorneys at The Krist Law Firm, P.C. can help.

We encourage you to speak to our attorneys as soon as possible to start your path toward rehabilitation and recovery. Under federal and Texas state laws, monetary compensation may be available to help pay for medical bills, loss of earning capacity, physical pain, mental anguish, physical limitations, and disfigurement — each of these elements in the past and future — when you or a family member has been injured through someone else’s negligence.

Until your case is settled or won, our dedicated attorneys will investigate every detail of your case at zero cost to you. Contact The Krist Law Firm, P.C. today to schedule a free consultation about your case.
