A car accident can turn your life upside down instantly; leaving you to face a seemingly impossible legal battle. Therefore, the legal steps you take after an accident can significantly impact your financial recovery. Thus, you should know that Williams Hart & Boundas’s lawyers have successfully fought on behalf of our clients, and we would do the same for you. In short the steps, you take after a severe auto accident can significantly impact the amount of compensation you recover. So it is imperative to take immediate action to protect your health, livelihood, and your family’s well-being.


Road wrecks are often the result of negligence. Whether at the hands of a truck driver, trucking company, or parts manufacturer. It would help if you did not have to shoulder the financial burden that a major vehicle collision can cause. Moreover, the responsible party should be held accountable for their actions. If you were seriously injured, or if you had a loved one killed in a car or 18-wheeler accident, you need an attorney on your side who is not afraid to fight for you.


Losing someone you love due to the negligence or misconduct of another person is an unthinkable tragedy. We understand that the last thing on your mind is talking to a lawyer or pursuing legal action. However, the wrongful death attorneys at Williams Hart & Boundas understand your pain and are here to help you pursue justice and get the answers you deserve.


While the oil and natural gas industry is the backbone of our country, it’s also a hazardous job to work. The legal team at Williams Hart & Boundas believes that oil and natural gas workers risk their lives daily. As such, they deserve maximum compensation. We have handled numerous catastrophic injury and fatality cases for oilfield workers and their families. We have the experience and the resources you need in your corner.


We get it; working on an offshore oil rig is a dangerous job. In fact, it is one of the most dangerous jobs in the nation. Thus, the last thing you should worry about when you get hurt is if your employer will take care of you. In the event of an offshore oil rig explosion, or ship accident, you deserve the proper compensation to help you recover and move on with your life. Choose a lawyer that understands the very complex and specific rules of maritime law. We will fight for you and your family to seek the justice you deserve.
