Car Accidents

Houston Car Accident Lawyers

While we all strive to be responsible drivers, sometimes the unexpected happens. If you have been in a car accident, we can help your through the legal process so you can focus on your recovery.

You’re on your way home from work or driving your kids to baseball practice and suddenly another vehicle fails to stop and crashes into you. Your car is damaged and you’re seriously hurt — and you may be unsure of what to do next.

A severe impact can cause a variety of serious injuries. Depending on the angle of impact, the weight of the vehicles, the force involved, and where you were positioned, you may have suffered:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Severed limbs
  • Broken bones
  • Severe burns
  • Spinal cord damage or paralysis
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Torn ligaments
  • Disfiguring lacerations
  • Muscle injuries
  • Emotional anguish

When you experience a catastrophic motor vehicle accident, your injuries may require a significant recovery period while you undergo surgeries, hospitalization, physical therapy or other rehabilitation. You’re likely unable to work while you’re healing and are concerned about your loss of income. At the same time, you’re receiving medical bills for your treatment, plus other bills related to your accident.

Your car is damaged and you’re seriously hurt — and you may be unsure what to do next.

You may feel overwhelmed by everything that’s happened and wondering how you’re going to manage your physical recovery and pay your bills. That’s where the Houston personal injury lawyers at The Krist Law Firm, P.C. can help. When you’ve suffered serious injuries in a motor vehicle accident caused by someone else, you’re entitled to compensation for your losses. That may take the form of a recovery or a jury award following a lawsuit and trial.

At The Krist Law Firm, P.C. we have helped thousands of people who’ve experienced catastrophic injuries in car accidents or other types of motor vehicle collisions. We work zealously to obtain the maximum possible compensation to cover the cost of your recovery, so you can move forward after your accident.

How a Houston Car Accident Lawyer Can Help

If you or a loved one was injured or killed in a motor vehicle accident, you may be able to recover compensation through a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.

Depending on the individual circumstances of your case, you may be able to receive payment for your past and future:

  • Medical costs
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Physical limitations
  • Physical pain
  • Disfigurement
  • Mental anguish

In a wrongful death lawsuit or survival action, you may be able to receive compensation for:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Financial losses, such as the value of contributions your loved one would have made to your family over his or her lifetime
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of your loved one’s companionship, or comfort

But to be successful, you need to present a strong case demonstrating that someone else caused the motor vehicle accident through negligence and that your losses are a result of the other person’s negligence. Your best chance at presenting the strongest possible case is with the help of a skilled personal injury lawyer.
