Practice Areas

Our dedicated attorneys provide personalized legal representation for people in Corpus Christi and surrounding areas who have been injured by others’ carelessness or disregard for safety. The types of cases and injuries we handle include:

Car Accidents—Our attorneys have extensive experience handling car accidents involving injuries. We will investigate the accident to identify all the at-fault parties and move aggressively to preserve evidence and interview witnesses. Texas law imposes a two-year time limit on filing a personal injury claim after a car crash, so it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible to start working on your case.

Truck Accidents—Thousands of 18 wheelers and other commercial trucks pass through Corpus Christi every day. If you have been injured in an accident caused by a semi-truck, you will need experienced legal assistance to stand up to the trucking company and fight for just compensation. An accident lawyer is available to review the accident and explain your legal options. If you receive a settlement offer from a trucking company’s insurer, let our attorneys review it and discuss whether it is a reasonable offer.

Motorcycle Accidents—The impact of a motorcycle crash can eject the rider from the motorcycle and cause serious injuries including head injuries and broken bones. Other motorists often fail to see motorcyclists in traffic and cause accidents. Our attorneys stand up for injured motorcyclists and their families. Let us help you through the process of recovering physically and financially from a motorcycle crash.

 

Wrongful Death— If your family has lost a loved one in a car crash or other type of accident caused by the negligence of another, you may be entitled to seek compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company to provide financial security for your family. Texas law permits the spouse, children, and parents of a deceased accident victim to file a wrongful death lawsuit.  During this difficult time, our compassionate lawyers can discuss your legal options and offer trusted guidance to help your family move forward.

Product Liability—Manufacturers are required to make products that are safe and to warn of any risks of the product. When a manufacturer produces products that have faulty designs that cause injuries or deaths, the manufacturer should be held legally accountable. Filing a product injury lawsuit and focusing attention on an unsafe product can prevent others in Corpus Christi from suffering preventable injuries.

Brain Injuries —A serious brain injury can cause impairments that necessitate a lifetime of care and leave the accident victim unable to work. The compensation sought for the brain injury survivor should reflect the present and future costs of the injury.  If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury, we understand the challenges you are dealing with to adapt to a new life. Our attorneys have helped brain injury survivors and their families face the physical, emotional and financial challenges posed by traumatic brain injuries.

Spinal Injuries—For spinal injury survivors, the cost of living with a spinal injury range from $1 million to $5 million over a lifetime, depending on the severity of the injury. A spinal cord injury survivor needs the help of a catastrophic injury attorney who will provide steadfast support and effective representation to help deal with an uncertain future. Let our spinal cord injury attorneys review your accident and explain whether you are entitled to demand compensation for your injury.

About Corpus Christi and Our Neighboring Communities

Corpus Christi was founded in 1839, when Colonel Henry Lawrence Kinney first established Kinney’s Trading Post, which sold supplies to the Mexican revolutionary army camping just 25 miles to the west. In 1845, General Zachary Taylor set up camp in the area, establishing a base in preparation for the war with Mexico. The troops remained until 1846. One year later the settlement was officially named Corpus Christi, and subsequently incorporated in 1852.

During the Civil War, the Battle of Corpus Christi was fought in the area Aug. 12-18, 1862. This fierce battle fought on land and sea, ended with the Union forces defeating ships of the Confederate States, although Confederate troops repulsed a Union landing party on shore.

The Port of Corpus Christi was established in 1926, and the Corpus Christi Naval Air Station was opened in 1941. The Naval Air Station and personnel serving our country are an integral part of our community, and we are proud of all of the members of the Navy serving and training in our area.

Several large hurricanes, notably Hurricane Celia and Hurricane Allen, have severely damaged Corpus Christi and surrounding communities over the years. The neighborhoods in Corpus Christi include Bayside, Flour Bluff, South Side, Calallen, Clarkwood, Annaville, North Beach, Mustang Island, North Padre Island and Gardendale.
