You are driving to work when a distracted driver on a cell phone crashes into your vehicle. Your child suffers a disfiguring laceration or broken bones because the daycare failed to maintain its playground equipment. A drunk driver runs a red light and kills your loved one. 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 on the water and injures him or her severely. 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 or death from a preventable accident.

Personal injury law is designed to protect your rights if you suffer physical, psychological, or financial harm due to the negligence or other unlawful conduct of another person or business. Incidents covered by personal injury law include intentional acts of violence, careless acts of negligence, gross negligence such as drunk or distracted driving, and when medical professionals fail to meet the appropriate standard of care (medical malpractice).

Under Texas law, personal injury cases are governed by a two-year statute of limitations that begins from the date of the injury, with rare exceptions. Cases of malicious prosecution and defamation have one-year statutes of limitation. Legal proceedings require strict adherence to these time limits. If you do not file your case in time, it will be barred forever and you will receive zero compensation, no matter how meritorious your case is.  Reach out to us as soon as possible so you do not lose your rights, even if you think your case may fall outside of the time limits. Initial consultations are always free, and your case may be an exception to the rule. Before you give up, let us take a look.

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 comparative fault or modified comparative negligence system. If you are more than 50% at fault for certain accidents, such as a vehicle crash, you may not have the right to collect any financial compensation from the other party. If your degree of fault is equal to or less than 50%, the court may reduce your compensation by the percentage of negligence attributable to you. Having an experienced and caring attorney on your side will make a difference in your ability to secure full and 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.
