Personal Injury Lawyers For the People
We do not represent insurance companies, period. We do not help big companies trample people’s rights. We represent the injured victims against the insurance companies, corporations and individuals who refuse to accept responsibility for the damages they negligently cause. If you or your loved ones have been injured due to another’s negligence, you understand how your whole life can be turned upside-down through no fault of your own. You may be out of work due to the injury. Medical bills start piling up. The pain gets worse before it gets better. Much to your surprise, the insurance company you thought was there to help you turns a cold unsympathetic shoulder to your plea for help. You do not have to take it. You have legal rights. Call Simmons and Fletcher now. In 2012, Keith M. Fletcher achieved an 11.9 Million Dollar Settlement for his client who suffered a serious electrical burn injury in an on-the-job-accident involving a bucket truck when the bucket boom was lifted by a coworker into an electrical wire causing severe burns. (Per Texas Bar disclosure requirements, the attorney fees on the case were $3,966,666.27 and case expenses were $213,253.55.) In the same year, our attorneys tried a whiplash case involving only $5,000.00 in medical expenses to verdict. Whether your case is big or small, Simmons and Fletcher fights for injured victims rights.
You Don’t Pay Unless We Win!
The consultation is always free and we take cases on a contingency fee basis. What that means is that we front all of the costs and take on the risk for you. You do not pay us a single dime unless we win your case for you. That is a promise we will make it to you if we take on your case. So why not at least get a free consultation and learn your rights?
Why You Need Simmons and Fletcher On Your Side
After an accident, it is often critical that you take steps to preserve evidence. Videotapes get recycled. Photographs disappear, get lost or never get taken. The time to document your case and preserve evidence is immediately after the accident happens. Insurance companies have accident lawyers on staff advising them every step of the way. But they are looking out for their own insured’s best interests, not yours. Shouldn’t you have a personal injury lawyer on your side who will protect your rights at the most important time in your case? Call us today to know your rights.
Helping Personal Injury Victims Locally and Nationally
While our primary area of practice is within the State of Texas, we will handle serious personal injury cases nationwide. By filing a Motion to Appear Pro Hac Vice, an attorney can obtain the permission of the Court to handle a matter in foreign jurisdictions. This is what enables us to handle trucking cases in other states ans well as Texas. You can learn more about how we handle your specific type of claim by visiting the webpage that addresses that area of practice.
Travel is no problem for us. We regularly travel to accident scenes to view and photograph the evidence. If you cannot get in to our office, we can send someone out to your home or hospital room, or we can arrange transportation.
