car accidents

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’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.

TRUCKING ACCIDENTS

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. 

WRONGFUL DEATH

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 understand your pain and are here to help you pursue justice and get the answers you deserve.

OILFIELD ACCIDENTS

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 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.

JONES ACT & MARITIME LAW

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.

WORK ACCIDENTS

If you or your loved one recently suffered a serious injury in the workplace. In that case, you are likely struggling with competing concerns. You probably are concerned about how soon you will be able to return to work. And how much you are going to have to pay for medical bills. Williams Hart has been handling work injury cases in Houston and across Texas for decades. We can and will fight to help you recover all the compensation you are entitled to receive.

MAJOR VICTORIES

Deep Water Horizon – On April 20th, 2010, an offshore drilling rig operated by BP off Louisiana’s coast exploded. There were multiple safety warnings and violations; however, they were all ignored by BP. As a result of this explosion, 11 employees died needlessly and another 17 injured. We represented over 1000 businesses seeking compensation from BP and recovered over $200 million.

BP Texas City Explosion – The BP refinery explosion in Texas City killed 15 and injured hundreds of others. Williams Hart law firm was there for the victims. We represented 150 injured workers who won just compensation for their injuries. We have now handled hundreds of explosion claims against major corporations such as Phillips Petroleum Co and ARCO.

The State of Texas (Tobacco) – We were one of five law firms that recovered over $17 billion for the State of Texas from major tobacco companies. The claim recovered was used to cover costs incurred in providing medical care and other benefits to its citizens, including expenses related to the Medicaid program. This important case was the largest settlement in the United States’ legal history.
