“One thing that I’ll tell you about Scott is that he’s going to fight for you. Bottom line. You know, my nickname for Scott is “the Bulldog.” He told me from the very beginning, “I’m to worry about your financial health. You worry about your physical health” — and that’s what he did.

That’s what The Krist Law Firm did for me — they honored their word.”

Do I have a personal injury case?

 

When you’re hurt, it’s natural to wonder if you have a valid personal injury claim. To successfully recover financial compensation for the losses related to your injures, you must prove three things:

  • The responsible party was careless or negligent. (A distracted driver struck your car)
  • Their negligence caused your injuries. (You sustained multiple broken bones in the crash)
  • Your injuries resulted in harm. (You suffered medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages)


If your accident and injuries meet these requirements, it’s in your best interest to speak with a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer about your options and next steps. Call for a Free Consultation. 281-326-9197.

What Is My Injury Claim Worth?

Personal injury law can be complicated, and obtaining what’s fair usually means dealing with insurance companies, negotiating an insurance settlement, and sometimes filing a personal injury lawsuit. It can be hard to know everything you need or are entitled to without help, but some things to think about when estimating the value of your claim are:

  • How much property damage was involved?
  • How much are your medical bills?
  • Did you need surgery or will in the future?
  • Are your injuries permeant or disabling?
  • Did you miss out on work?
  • Has your quality of life been affected?
  • Do you share any of the blame?

While there is no precise formula for determining an exact amount for your injuries, your best option is to discuss what happened to you with an experienced injury lawyer.

A serious injury can leave a mark on your life in many ways, not the least of which is financially. Further, we charge no attorney fees until we obtain compensation for your injury case. Take advantage of our No Recovery, No Fee guarantee.

    Maritime Injuries

    Maritime environments — whether in the Port of Houston, on a ship, or an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico working at sea— can be dangerous, even fatal. Fortunately, maritime accidents and injuries are covered by specific laws. This makes them different than other personal injury cases, so it’s important to work with experienced Houston maritime lawyers, like those at The Krist Law Firm. With our background and maritime success record, we understand how to build the strongest case for injured maritime workers and secure maximum compensation.

    Truck Accidents

    Houston and the surrounding area of Harris County is a major transportation hub. Unfortunately, that also means truck accidents are a common occurrence. And despite the often devastating injuries these collisions cause, trucking companies and insurance carriers usually try to avoid liability and offer much less than you deserve. That’s where our team of Houston truck accident lawyers can help. We have an excellent record in truck accident cases and have successfully helped many Houston accident victims obtain the maximum for their injuries and losses.
