Our team of aggressive, strategic litigators is available to assist with Texans’ legal needs from our law offices located in Arlington and Houston. The Texas personal injury attorneys at The Queenan Law Firm, P.C. strive to establish long-lasting relationships and trust by providing responsive, high-quality legal representation to clients for an array of practice areas. If you or a family member needs guidance with a personal injury, family law, or business litigation concern, you will know where to turn. Our attorneys are committed to protecting and enforcing our clients’ legal rights, liberty, and future.

Personal Injury Law

When you file a personal injury lawsuit, you will start your case by working with your attorney to explain the details of the accident or injury to the court. Your initial consultation with your lawyer will help give us an idea of what happened and what your case might be worth. After you agree to work with us, we can start building your case and getting all the details we need as to what happened and what damages you deserve. We will then compile those details into a “complaint” and file it with the court.

We will also have to “serve” the defendants in your case with the proper paperwork. This gives them a chance to respond to our filing and refute the claims. Many cases can go back and forth for a few rounds of filings. There, our attorneys will insist that the case should move to trial and the defense will try to claim that, even if everything we said is true, you should still lose the claim. Sometimes, these cases go to oral arguments, and we will appear in court on your behalf to address these motions.

If the case progresses, it will go to a stage called “discovery.” During this stage, both parties will conduct interviews, ask the court to subpoena evidence and witnesses, and finish extracting any and all evidence out of the case. We will determine what is important and whether any evidence should be barred from being used in your case. The Texas Rules of Evidence provide a lot of protections for injury victims, and you might be able to block certain facts from coming in at trial if they are irrelevant to the facts at hand or they paint you in a bad light without providing enough information about what happened and why the defendant was at fault.

It is usually at this stage that cases get settled, but if our Texas personal injury lawyers cannot settle for a fair value, your case will move to trial.

Corporate & Commercial Litigation

If we cannot settle your case out of court and it goes to trial, you should expect a few days in court for your trial. In many cases, this can seem anticlimactic that it took weeks or months to get to this stage, and then it only lasts a few days at trial.

In a trial, the plaintiff/victim gets to go first. Your lawyer will give an opening statement and review the case with the jury, explaining to them the story of what we will prove happened. The defense will then get their opening statements, where they will explain that our case has too many holes in it or that it does not actually prove anything. From there, we will take turns presenting evidence and witnesses, cross-examining witnesses, and laying out the facts mentioned in our opening statements. At the end, we will get the last chance to speak to the jury and argue why the evidence we presented fully proves your case and shows that you deserve compensation for your injuries.

During your trial, expect both sides’ lawyers to make objections. These objections are usually used to prevent evidence that could be prejudicial or cause legal issues from being used in a case. For instance, the defendant cannot use “hearsay” – statements made outside of the courtroom offered to prove that what is said in those statements is true. Furthermore, the defendant should not be able to bring up things like a past criminal conviction you had to try to paint you as a bad person who does not deserve compensation. At the end of the trial, the jury will deliberate. Before they do, the judge will give them jury instructions, which can take a long time to get through. The deliberations could take minutes, hours, or days, and there is really no way of knowing how long it will take. You should expect that the jury will come back and request parts of the transcript to be read again or ask certain questions of the judge before they come to their final decision.

Family Law

Being injured in an accident can take a toll on your entire life and the lives of your families. Our attorneys understand the financial expense that goes into medical bills, transportation to the hospital, child care while you recover, and other costs after serious injuries. We also understand the difficulties you may face if you cannot return to work to continue to support your family. We understand these hardships because we have helped thousands of families in the same situation fight to get the help they need after a serious injury.

Our attorneys fight for compensation for our injury victims. Our goal is to see all of your needs paid for if you were injured because of someone else’s negligence. Whether that means fighting auto insurance companies, suing the owner of the property where you were injured, or taking a large trucking company to court, the lawyers at The Queenan Law Firm work to see your medical bills paid and your lost wages reimbursed.

If you are experiencing serious pain and suffering from your injuries, our lawyers will work to see that you receive compensation for your suffering. Texas law allows injury victims to recover very high damages for their pain and suffering, and places no restrictions or “caps” on the damages. Because of this, pain and suffering damages may be one of the biggest parts of your personal injury case. Help keep your family going while you recover from your serious injuries. Take your case to the Texas personal injury attorneys at The Queenan Law Firm, P.C.

“Attorney Carlos Lopez entered my family’s lives unexpectedly after a life altering accident shook me to my core…”

Attorney Carlos Lopez entered my family’s lives unexpectedly after a life altering accident shook me to my core. After I told him what happened, he assured me that he would work hard to give me justice. He did just that. Carlos and his team at Queenan kept me informed of the specifics of my case’s progress and was always transparent. His transparency and honesty gave me room to focus on the hard work it would take to recover from my injuries.

"We were quite surprised with what we were able to recover."

"The Queenan Law Firm was excellent in dealing with our case. Not sure what to expect having never been in an accident before. However our Attorney Carlos at the Queenan Law firm handled our case from start to finish. We were able to recover our losses and our medical expenses. We were quite surprised with what we were able to recover, especially not knowing what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised with our settlement we thought it was more than fair. We were always kept well informed from our attorney and always felt he was fighting for everything we deserved. We hope to never be involved in another accident but if we were we would not hesitate to reach out to The Queenan Law firm again."

Filing a Personal Injury Case in Texas

When you are seriously injured, one of the best ways to get compensation might be to file your case in court. A personal injury lawsuit filed against the at-fault parties can help you get your damages paid and hold the responsible parties accountable. Lawsuits can be filed against at-fault drivers for car accidents, against negligent product manufacturers for product defect injuries, and against owners of dangerous property where you were injured.

When you take your case to court, your lawyer will need to prove your case to get you the compensation you need. In most injury cases, your claim will be based on a theory of “negligence” that essentially states that the defendant failed to use the proper care and skill that the law required them to use. If this breach of legal duty caused your injuries, you can receive compensation for any damages you can prove.
