Eric D. Nielsen is a texas board certified personal injury trial lawyer

You are driving to work when a distracted driver on a cell phone crashes into your vehicle. Your child suffers a disfiguring laceration because the daycare failed to maintain playground materials. A drunk driver runs a red light and injures you severely. An 18-wheeler driver fails to control his speed, smashes into the rear of your car, injures your spine and gives you a concussion (mild traumatic brain injury). A drunk boater hits your loved one in the water. Your loved one never fully recovers. The Nielsen Law Firm is here to answer the question “What now?” after you or a loved one suffers a severe injury in a preventable accident.

Personal injury is a major category of law designed to protect your rights if you suffer physical, psychological, or financial harm. Incidents that fall under personal injury include malicious acts of violence, careless acts of negligence, and when medical professionals fail to meet their standard of care (malpractice).

We have the resources, passion, and experience necessary to help you secure compensation after a personal injury.

At the Nielsen Law Firm, we handle all personal injury incidents and injuries. We represent those who have suffered, and we try to give them a brighter future. Our founding partner, Eric D. Nielsen, is a Board Certified Personal Injury Trial Lawyer who has maintained his certification by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 1991. We have the resources, the passion, and the experience it takes to help you secure fair and just compensation after a personal injury.


Personal injury laws vary from state to state, which is why you need a lawyer who has experience with cases in your state. Our attorneys have a reputation for success among our clients in the Houston, Texas, legal community and throughout the whole State of Texas. Count on us to deliver accessible legal representation and unflinching resolve to obtain the best possible outcome in every case.

Under Texas law, most personal injury cases fall under a two-year statute of limitations that begins from the date of the injury, with rare exceptions. Contact an attorney as soon as you can after an accident. Legal proceedings require strict adherence to time-frames. Reach out to us as soon as you can so you do not lose your rights, even if you think your case may fall outside of the two-year time-frame. An initial consultation is always free, and your case may be an exception to the rule.

Client Testimonials

If we accept your case, you will not owe any legal fees unless and until we secure compensation on your behalf.

Our state operates under what is known as a shared fault or modified comparative negligence guidelines. If you are more than 50% at fault for certain accidents, such as a vehicle crash, you may not have the right to collect financial compensation from the other party. If your degree of fault is equal to or less than 50%, the court may reduce your compensation proportionately. Having an experienced and caring attorney on your side will make a difference in your ability to secure fair compensation. In hotly contested cases, every percentage point of fault counts.

When to Contact Your Houston Attorney

Some people are not sure if and when they should reach out to an attorney. You should immediately ask for legal advice if:

  • Your insurance company or the other party’s insurance company denies your claim or offers you a settlement that will not cover your injuries. Do not accept a settlement without talking to an attorney first!
  • You have suffered a permanent loss of quality of life as the result of someone else’s actions.
  • You are not sure about a party’s liability (e.g., a daycare center’s, an amusement park’s, or an employer’s) after an accident.
  • You know your injuries occurred through no fault of your own and you are not sure what step to take next.

Our attorneys will serve as invaluable assets throughout the legal process. If we accept your case, you will not owe us any legal fees unless and until we secure compensation on your behalf. We will clearly answer your questions and skillfully represent you in front of any potential defendant. You deserve an opportunity to rest and heal after an injury, and we want to make the burden of daily life less stressful during this time.
