Simmons and Fletcher, P.C., Injury & Accident Lawyers Areas of Law Description

- Auto Injury

Simmons and Fletcher, P.C. Injury & Accident Lawyers will help you set up a claim with the adjusters and gather information for you; so that you can take the time that you need to deal with everything else. In the case that the other driver did not maintain insurance, we will verify what your policy covers. Then we will assist you in any claims regarding the accident that we can.

- Work Injury

Our attorneys have the experience necessary to represent potential clients that have suffered an injury in the workplace. The 100 years combined legal and professional experience gives us the great advantages you will need going against the employers or insurance. Ready to provide you with comprehensive legal representation are two board-certified personal injury lawyers.

-Truck Accidents

Christopher Keith Fletcher is a member of the Association of Plaintiff's Interstate Trucking Lawyers. Our firm has handled numerous 18 wheeler accident cases in Texas and other States including several million-dollar settlements. We have experience in trucking negligence involving bad brakes, excessive speed, failure to secure loads, failure to maintain the commercial motor vehicle, driver fatigue, and other causes of truck accidents.

- Dog Bites

Paul H. Cannon has handled numerous dog bite and dog attack cases for victims across Texas. He has been the faculty speaker on the topic of dog bite law for Strafford Webinars and has been invited to give talks about the state of dog bite law in Texas.

- Maritime Law

We have practiced maritime law for the entire Gulf Coast region. Sometimes accidents happen on large boats or tankers especially when it seems like a dangerous job. These instances could be covered under the Jones Act, which was begun to protect the rights of seamen and any workers having employment on navigable waters.

- Premises Liability

This legal area covers any injury that could happen on a property and it is the owner’s responsibility. This can include anything from a commercial property or a single homeowner. Things that fall under these laws are apartment complex injuries, slip and falls, sports injuries, and even carnival ride accidents.

- Product Liability

Over the years, there has been an increasing number of product liability cases. The products can be anything from medicines to children’s toys. Sometimes the product doesn’t cause an accident, it causes a wrongful death. It’s during these times that you want to be sure you have the right representation to prove your case.

- Medical Liability

Medical liability cases are especially heinous and it takes skilled attorneys like us to properly handle this situation. When you go to a doctor, you expect them to know their specialties and take care of you. But, that doesn’t always happen. Instead of sending you elsewhere they just improperly treat you, leaving you in a worse position than you were before.

- Serious Injury

A serious injury can occur anywhere and at any time. Unfortunately, there is no way to prepare for this. That’s why you need someone with enough skill to take care of you after it happens. Attorney’s will be able to find the negligence of the other party and prove that the event was so catastrophic that you deserve compensation and future medical protection.
