Battling against the other party’s insurance company can be overwhelming and intimidating. It’s important to meticulously investigate your accident to build the strongest case possible, and prove the other party was negligent and caused your injury. There are deadlines you must follow and detailed documentation to submit. If you don’t have experience with insurance claims, you’ll likely make a mistake that affects the outcome of your case.
With both attorneys working personally on each case, our legal team forms close relationships with our clients. We keep you up-to-date about your case and do everything we can to assist you throughout the entire process.
Why You Need a Texas Lawyer
If you sustained an injury in an accident, you should seek the help of an experienced Texas Personal Injury Lawyer. When you’re feeling overwhelmed by your injuries and the daily challenges they pose, you might make a rash decision, and accept the first offer you get from the at-fault party’s insurance provider. That decision would be a mistake. It could leave you with significantly less money than you need and deserve.
At Gibson Hill Personal Injury, we know the mental, financial, and physical strain our clients feel every single day. It’s difficult enough trying to recover from an accident without the additional stress of navigating a serious personal injury case. Texas injury claims and lawsuits are complex processes that most people don’t understand. That’s why you need an experienced personal injury lawyer — we handle every step for our clients so you can focus on your recovery.
When you hire us, we will investigate your accident, gather evidence, and file an injury claim on your behalf. If necessary, we’ll file a lawsuit and take your case to court. At our law firm, we are injury lawyers with experience handling cases just like yours and know the crucial pieces of evidence we need to prove your injury claim.
During our investigation, we’ll collect evidence such as:
- Your medical records and billing statements
- Copies of all insurance policies
- Witness statements
- Video surveillance
- Police/incident reports
Our law firm has extensive resources at our disposal to make sure we can recover all the evidence available in a personal injury case. Most people don’t know where to look for documentation or don’t understand personal injury law and the process they need to go through to obtain specific evidence.
In some situations, an insurance company will send the injured party forms to fill out and sign. Unfortunately, many victims of personal injury don’t understand what they’re signing and that they can opt out of it.
If you believe it’s a requirement to sign every document the insurance adjuster sends you, you could inadvertently end up signing away your rights to the maximum settlement available. That’s how insurance companies trick accident victims. They take advantage of those who haven’t sought legal representation and find ways to strip them of their rights.

Cyclists have every right to share the road with motor vehicles, but while they are legally recognized as equals, they are no match for passenger or commercial vehicles when involved in a collision.

Some people suffer injuries because of accidents caused by dangerous property conditions, and it may be possible to hold negligent property owners liable through premises liability lawsuits. Many victims in premises-related accidents will immediately be accused of having been at fault by the property owners and then their insurance companies.
The success of a premises claim will often depend on the duty the property owner owed a person because of their legal status. An invitee is a person who enters property by the owner’s expressed or implied invitation for the mutual benefit of both parties and is owed the highest duty of care. A licensee is a person to whom the property owner has given consent to enter the property and must be warned of any dangerous conditions. Finally, a trespasser is a person who is on the property unlawfully and is owed no duty of care. Reach out to our law firm to speak to a Premises Liability Attorney in Houston, or Austin today.

Reach out to our Uber accident lawyers in Houston or Austin to discuss your case.

Vehicle accidents involving trucks can be devastating. 18-wheelers have big blind spots and take up a significant portion of the road on Texas highways. If you have been injured in a rollover truck accident, or any other type of big vehicle accident, you may be able to pursue damages against the negligent truck driver or trucking company. Contact our Truck Accident Attorneys in Houston or Austin Texas today to seek compensation.

Death is incredibly difficult for all involved. The sudden and unexpected death of a loved one can create a tremendous amount of confusion and stress for the family that is left behind.
When a person dies because of another party’s negligence, the family can often file a wrongful death claim. The lawsuit would seek to prove negligence and recover economic damages for costs such as funeral and burial expenses, as well as loss of economic support. Noneconomic damages could also be awarded for loss of consortium, lost care and support, or mental anguish.
The surviving spouse, children, or parents of a deceased person can file a suit in Texas. If none of these parties file a death claim within three months of the date of death, the personal representative or executor of the deceased person’s estate can file the lawsuit unless a surviving family member requests that the lawsuit not be filed. The remaining family members of wrongful death victims can reach out to our Austin or Houston Wrongful Death Attorneys.

Texas Accident and Injury Statistics
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Texas is well above the national average in traffic deaths per capita. More people died in traffic accidents in Texas than in any other state in the country between 2010 and 2018. The numbers surpassed that of California despite there being a higher population and more cars on the roadways.
The leading causes of auto accidents in Texas appear to be speeding, driver distraction, and alcohol. In a majority of car wrecks, multiple factors contribute to the accidents, such as texting and speeding simultaneously.
Pedestrian and bicycle accidents seem to be increasing even though people in Texas cities don’t bike or walk as often as residents in other cities across the United States. Fatalities related to bicycle and pedestrian accidents increased by 40% over ten years. Experts believe heavy vehicles, such as pickup trucks and SUVs, are contributing to those deaths.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Personal Injury Cases
What’s a Contingency Fee?
A contingency fee means there are no upfront fees or costs for a lawyer to work on your case. The legal fees get taken out of the settlement or monetary award from a jury trial at the end of the case. If we can’t recover compensation for you, you won’t owe us any money.
What Should I Do After an Accident?
- Take photos of the accident scene and your injuries but DO NOT post the pictures on social media
- Write down the names and phone numbers of witnesses
- Visit a doctor and follow instructions for follow-up treatment
- Take detailed notes about what happened, the injuries you sustained, where the accident took place, and other relevant information
- Speak to a Texas personal injury attorney about your car accident
Is There a Deadline for Filing a Lawsuit?
To pursue a personal injury lawsuit, you have to adhere to a strict statute of limitations. A statute of limitations is the amount of time you have to bring legal action against someone else. Texas law allows two years for most personal injury cases.
