Not all Houston law firms are capable of properly handling injury cases, and if a victim chooses incorrectly, they may have trouble securing a favorable settlement. When a person is hurt by another party’s negligence, the consequences can be devastating. Serious injuries can leave a person permanently disabled and incapable of working, or even engaging in the basic day to day activities. Victims of an accident are sometimes rendered incapable of taking care of themselves, and medical costs can quickly make a terrible situation even worse. But, the victim has legal rights, and they should be exercised if they believe another party’s carelessness was responsible for the accident. Terry Bryant and his team of experienced, versatile attorneys can help victims take advantage of their rights and pursue compensation against the defendant.
WHAT SETS APART THE BEST HOUSTON LAW FIRMS FROM THE REST?
School can only prepare an attorney to an extent for the real conditions they will face with clients and in the courts. While a strong base of knowledge is essential for an attorney, the significant difference between the best attorneys and everyone else is experience.
Experience is essential for Houston law firms because every case is different. Even vehicle accident claims, which tend to follow a set pattern, can include many factors. Was the driver intoxicated? Were they driving a commercial vehicle? Even if they were operating their vehicle safely, were they properly licensed? Where were the vehicles impacted, and what does this suggest about the events leading to the crash? Can the victim’s injuries be immediately linked to the accident, or did they surface sometime after the wreck? Answering all of the questions requires a number of professional connections and knowledge of prior jurisprudence. Experience is the only thing that can provide these.
However, even experienced Houston law firms may not be equipped to take on a significant injury case, especially if the defendant is a powerful institution. Large businesses have deep pockets and entire teams of attorneys, both of which can be used to bully a victim. Corporations also attempt to coerce the victim into signing away their right to sue or undermine themselves in some fashion. An attorney who has taken on these corporations, though, will be able to diffuse underhanded tactics and act as an equalizer against a powerful legal team. Here are some of the high-profile defendants Terry Bryant and his team have challenged:
- Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.
- The Kroger Co.
- BP PLC
- The Dow Chemical Company
- Toyota Motor Corporation
- Honda Motor Company, Ltd.
- Memorial Hermann Hospital
- Randalls Food Markets
- Chevron Corporation
Few Houston law firms can claim a similar history of performance, and the mere presence of a high caliber attorney will discourage defendants from being dishonest during the settlement and trial phases.
