car accidents

A car accident can turn your life upside down in an instant, and the legal steps you take after an accident can have a significant impact on your financial recovery. Williams Hart Lawyers have successfully fought on behalf of our clients who have been hurt and were left to face a seemingly impossible legal battle. The steps you take after a severe auto accident can have a significant impact on 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. You should not have to shoulder the financial burden that a major vehicle collision can cause, and the responsible party should be held accountable for their actions. If you were seriously injured, or if a loved one was 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 is an unthinkable tragedy followed by incomparable anguish. We understand that during this time of grief, the last thing on your mind is talking to a lawyer or pursuing legal action. However, the wrongful death attorneys at Williams Hart understand this pain and are here to help you pursue justice and the answers you deserve following your tragic loss.

OILFIELD ACCIDENTS

While the oil and natural gas industry is the backbone of our country, it’s also incredibly dangerous for its workforce. The legal team at Williams Hart believes that oil and natural gas workers 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

As an employee in one of the most dangerous industries in the nation, you deserve to be protected from harm. In the event of an offshore oil rig explosion, offshore oil rig accident, 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 an accident in the workplace, you are likely struggling with competing concerns 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 of the compensation you are entitled to receive.

MAJOR VICTORIES

Deep Water Horizon – On April 20th, 2010 an offshore drilling rig operated by BP off the coast of Louisiana exploded after multiple safety warnings and violations were ignored. This resulted in the deaths of 11 employees, and injuries of 17 others. 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 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) – One of five law firms that recovered over $17 billion for the State of Texas from major tobacco companies to recover costs incurred in providing medical care and other benefits to its citizens, including costs associated with the Medicaid program.
