Southeast Texas Personal Injury Attorney Offers Strong Advocacy for Accident Victims
Experienced Houston lawyer fights for the damages clients deserve
Personal injuries can take an emotional toll on you and your loved ones and present financial challenges as you struggle to pay bills while unable to work. At Jeff Todd, Personal Injury Attorney, I represent clients throughout the greater Houston area in personal injury matters, including car accidents, vehicle rollovers, premises liability, product defects, slip and fall accidents, and wrongful death claims. Drawing on nearly 20 years of litigation experience and my knowledge of insurance defense tactics, I take an aggressive stance against insurers and defendants while providing personalized attention, empathy and a hands-on approach to every client’s case.
Skilled litigator presses for plaintiffs’ rights to fair compensation
If you’re in a car accident in Texas, an at-fault auto insurance state, you can file a claim or lawsuit against the driver who caused your accident. Getting reimbursement for your injuries, however, can be a difficult and lengthy process. This is why you need to retain an experienced and aggressive personal injury attorney to ensure the other side doesn’t unnecessarily drag the case out. Disputed liability is what keeps personal injury claims from resolving as quickly as they should. Accidents involving rear-end collisions or drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol are almost always clear-cut liability, but insurance companies often delay paying third-party claims.
I work to ensure that your auto accident claim is resolved as quickly as possible so you aren’t struggling with medical providers and other creditors hounding you for payment. In the event the case proceeds to court, I protect your interests by preparing a carefully planned litigation strategy. Some of the compensation you can recover from an auto accident claim includes:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages, including future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
Whether your case is settled in negotiations or in court, you can rely on my advocacy from start to finish.
Experienced counselor seeks justice in wrongful death actions
Perhaps you weren’t the one in the accident, but your spouse, child or parent was killed due to the negligence of the other driver. You may have a claim for wrongful death, which allows you to recover compensation for:
- Loss of earnings
- Medical and funeral expenses
- Mental and emotional anguish, pain, and suffering
- Lost love, companionship, comfort, and society
Retaining a competent personal injury attorney right from the start can help speed up reimbursement for your injuries and ensure your interests are thoroughly represented during the initial investigation phase. You have two years from the date of your loved one’s death to file suit, so it is important to act within that time so you don’t risk the right to sue.
Detailed strategist for your premises liability case
Premises liability claims, which often involve slip and fall accidents, are one of the most disputed types of personal injury claims. You must be able to prove that the property owner had a duty of care, that duty was breached, and the breach caused your injury. These claims are also time-sensitive as accident scenes require quick inspection to prove the business owner or homeowner was negligent. Initiating the legal process immediately helps protect your compensation rights. If you suffered a slip and fall or another injury while lawfully on someone else’s property, you have the right to seek compensation. With nearly 20 years of experience in premises liability cases, I can devise a strategic plan and accurately assess the damages you’re owed.
