More Than 25 Years Of Experience

Personal Injury

Has a life-changing accident caused by someone else — on a highway, in a public park, at a construction site — thrown you out of work and left you desperate for answers?

Our dedicated personal injury lawyers understand what you are going through. Carlos Hughes and Laura Hughes of The Hughes Law Firm in Houston, Texas, are ready to help you — every step of the way.

This skillful, around-the-clock, compassionate legal assistance may take the form of thoughtful recommendations offered during your free initial consultation; in-depth investigation of the cause of your accident; fact-based negotiation with an insurance company representing the negligent party who seriously injured you; aggressive litigation in court; or all of these strategies designed to gain the maximum financial compensation you deserve for your sacrifice.

Personal Injury Overview

Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries

Some of the most devastating injuries that a person can suffer are those to our central nervous system. A person who suffers a brain or spinal cord injury will be left with some degree of permanent disability for the rest of his or her life.

At The Hughes Law Firm, our lawyers represent people who suffer serious injuries in motor vehicle accents, construction accidents and from other types of negligence. Our lawyers have obtained multimillion dollar awards for our clients, including $1.2 million settlement of a lawsuit for a man who suffered a traumatic brain injury in a truck accident in Harris county.

If you or a loved one has suffered a life-changing injury, our lawyers will hire economists and life care planners who will help us document the amount of money that is needed to provide financial security for a lifetime. You will only have one opportunity to seek compensation from the negligent party. If you settle your case for too little money, you and your family could be impoverished by medical bills and lost wages after a few years.

Uninsured / Underinsured Accident Victims

There are many drivers in Texas who either do not have insurance or who have minimal amounts of insurance coverage.  If you are injured by a driver who has no insurance coverage, we know how to investigate to determine all available coverages.  If you are injured by someone that has minimal amounts of insurance coverage, then we are equipped to determine if any additional coverage applies including underinsured motorist coverage in order to provide additional recovery for our clients.

Most people are not aware of coverages that may be applicable. If you have auto insurance in Texas, your insurance company is required to offer coverage for uninsured and underinsured drivers unless you decline it in writing.

If you, a loved one or a friend is injured in a car or 18-wheeler accident, please make sure and note the following:

  • Get medical treatment right away: Your health and safety are critical. Make sure you receive the medical care you need;
  • Call the police: Make sure an accident report is filed with the police, sheriff or state troopers;
  • Document the accident and get witnesses: If you are able to, use your phone to take photographs of your damaged vehicle, your injuries and the other vehicle(s) involved in the accident. Get the names and contact information of witnesses. Be sure to obtain information from other drivers;
  • Do not talk to another party’s insurance company until you seek legal advice: Insurance companies have teams of lawyers and trained adjusters. As an injury victim, you need someone on your side to protect your interests and help you make sure your medical and financial needs are taken care of;
  • Find an experienced attorney to represent you: In the vast majority of car accident cases, having legal representation will net more compensation for the victim.

Drunk Driving Accidents

Drunk driving car crashes occur far too often in Texas, like they do elsewhere across the United States. Whether it’s that one more drink for the road following a business meeting, or an underage driver sneaking home on the back roads: all can be recipes for disaster. A drunk or tipsy driver is still driving under the influence of alcohol, endangering all those who share the road with him or her.

Tough Attorneys Helping The Seriously Injured

Chances are, you or a loved one will be in the wrong place at the wrong time at some point during your life. If you are suffering from injuries sustained in a drunk driving accident, The Hughes Law Firm can help you.

Distracted Driving Accidents

Distracted drivers kill and seriously injure thousands of people each year in Texas. Everyone knows it is against the law to text and drive. And anyone with common sense knows you shouldn’t be staring at a smartphone, Snapchatting, looking at your Facebook timeline, using an iPad, eating a meal or watching television while operating a motor vehicle. Yet it happens all the time in Texas.

The problem goes beyond the more obviously negligent acts of texting and accessing the internet behind the wheel. Just like you need legal advice if an alcohol-impaired driver injured you, you need guidance if you were hurt in a distracted driving accident.

Truck Accidents

If you, a family member or friend has been injured in an accident involving a semi-truck or tractor-trailer, please call us right now. There are several things that must transpire immediately in order to preserve evidence and file a claim for someone that has been injured by a semi-truck or tractor-trailer. The insurance companies have their own attorneys working for them so you need someone on your side that will fight for you. Insurance companies will travel to truck accident scenes and begin gathering evidence. So please do not delay and contact us today!

At The Hughes Law Firm, our Carlos & Laura represent people who suffer serious injuries in truck accidents in Texas. We have obtained multimillion dollar awards for truck accident victims. Tractor-trailers are large, dangerous vehicles that cause devastating injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck  or an 18-wheeler accident, you need an aggressive attorney who will investigate the background of the driver, secure driver log-books, and truck maintenance records, and look for violations of TXDOT regulations such as overloading. Evidence you need to prove your case can disappear if your lawyer does not act promptly to secure it.

Pharmacy Errors

We all love when medical breakthroughs occur. In fat, drug companies put new medications on the market on a regular basis, promising relief and freedom from debilitating symptoms and pain. Manufacturers churn out new medical devices each year that are supposed to fix knees, hips and other parts of our bodies. Doctors and surgeons are eager to help their patients and provide cures for their ailments.

Unfortunately, negligence by a drug company, facility or provider can lead to serious injuries, illnesses or deaths. If you or a loved one is a victim of a medical mistake — such as a medication error or defective medical device — seek the advice of an attorney.

Experienced And Compassionate Medical Claim Attorneys

The Hughes Law Firm has been providing caring and professional legal assistance to individuals who suffer serious personal injuries due to negligence since 1999. Our lawyers will listen carefully to your story, review your medical records, and help you determine if a medical malpractice claim can help you receive compensation for your losses.

Let our legal team provide you and your family guidance in situations that may involve issues including:

  • Misused or improperly prescribed drugs
  • Misrepresentations of a drug’s capabilities
  • Using a drug for a purpose for which it was not actually intended
  • Failure to consider risks and contraindications of a drug or device
  • Leaving a medical device in a patient following a surgery or other medical procedure
