Who is Liable for Your Injuries?
Personal injury law entitles certain accident victims to compensation for their injury-related losses. Compensation is available if another party was negligent in causing the accident and injuries. Negligence is a complex legal standard and proving someone else acted negligently can be a challenging task. You need a legal team on your side with the experience of holding negligent parties fully responsible for their actions.
You may have important legal rights after a wide variety of accidents. Our law firm regularly handles claims stemming from the following accidents:
- Car accidents
- Commercial truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Drunk driving accidents
- Premises liability
- Slip and falls
- Trip and falls
- Construction worker accidents
- Nursing home abuse
- Defective drugs
- Gas and oilfield accidents
Each type of accident will have unique issues when it comes to determining liability.
Many types of parties can be responsible for your injuries, depending on the circumstances of your incident. We face off against many parties, including:
- Commercial truck companies
- Pharmaceutical companies
- Retail stores
- Contractors and construction companies
- Nursing homeowners
- Government agencies
Filing a claim against an individual driver can differ significantly from filing a claim against a multi-million dollar corporation. We have the skill and resources to take on any adverse party, and we are not intimidated by large companies and their insurers. In order to hold any and all negligent parties at fault, our legal team is the right one to help you.
Seeking Recovery Through the Legal Process
Accidental injuries can result in extensive losses that add financial and mental stress to your already difficult situation. We help clients seek compensation for the following damages, among others:
- Medical expenses
- Estimated future medical expenses for ongoing treatment
- Lost income if you had to miss work
- Lost future earnings if you must seek a lower-paying job or rely on disability
- Permanent injuries, impairments, and disabilities
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental trauma
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Wrongful death
The process of seeking compensation for your injuries is complicated and involves many steps. The first step is determining liability, as mentioned above. Next, our team works to calculate the full value of your losses so we know how much recovery you are required to recover your losses. This can be a complex calculation, especially in cases involving catastrophic or lasting injuries. We have a network of medical, occupational, and economic experts we can call on when needed to help justify the value of your claim.
Once we know who was responsible and the extent of your losses, we can file an insurance claim with the insurer of the negligent party. This could be an auto insurer, a general liability business insurer, a property insurer, or any other relevant company covering the liable party.
Many people are tempted to handle an insurance claim on their own. After all, if the policyholder caused your injuries, the process of receiving an insurance payment should be simple, right? In our experience, insurance companies are not easy to work with and try to take advantage of unrepresented parties. An insurer’s first priority is not a claimant—it is protecting its profits and policyholders. For this reason, the insurance adjuster will use many tactics to try to limit your claim.
It is always best to have legal assistance from the very start of the claims process. Our team can help you with the following:
- File your insurance claim for the full amount you deserve
- Provide evidence to support your liability claims and losses
- Handle every communication with adjusters
- Review any settlement offers and negotiate higher amounts when needed
- If necessary, we will take the matter to court to obtain a fair and just settlement
When you’re dealing with medical treatment, pain, and impairments, the last thing you need is an insurance company delaying the process and trying to get you to accept a settlement that is less than you deserve. We handle this process for you so you do not have any additional stress in this already trying time.
You may wonder whether you can afford to hire a law firm since you already face added financial stress from medical bills and lost wages. Know that our office works off of a contingency fee agreement, meaning we do not charge ANYTHING unless we successfully obtain compensation for you. We evaluate your case for free and you pay nothing out of pocket for the duration of your case. Therefore, anyone can afford to hire our firm for help with their personal injury claim.

“As a relatively new resident of Houston, I did not know of an attorney to contact for a personal injury suit. I randomly went through the yellow pages contacting two attorneys that had rejected my case prior to me contacting Stewart Guss. Stewart took my case on and settled for far more than I had anticipated. The silver lining of this is that I will now have enough money to go back to school for retraining, so I will be able to reenter the workforce in a new capacity. The paralegal, Angela, was kind and supportive throughout the process. If I did not understand the legal jargon, I did not hesitate to ask, and was never once made to feel that I was incompetent. Thank you Stewart and Angela for giving me a new lease on live.”
