When an accident occurs due to negligence, an injured person may sue the negligent party to recover all their damages. Damages usually include medical expenses, property damage, pain and suffering, loss of income and earning potential, and possibly punitive damages as well.
Proving a physical, emotional, or cognitive injury can be an arduous process. The experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorneys in Texas at the Buzbee Law Firm are qualified to handle difficult personal injury and accident cases.
Types of Cases We Handle for Clients
We focus on the seriously injured — the people who find themselves with life-changing injuries after an accident. We know how hard it can be to get insurance companies to make a fair offer in these cases, and we want our clients to know that someone is going to be there to fight for their best interests.
Cases that our Texas personal injury attorneys frequently take on for our clients include:
- Accidents involving 18-wheelers, tow trucks, and other commercial vehicles
- Workplace injuries, such as refinery explosions, plant accidents, oil field accidents, and other work-related accidents
- Burn injuries to include apartment fires, electrical, and defective products
- Sexual abuse claims against clergy members, coaches, teachers, and others in positions of authority over children
We are also trial lawyers. When the other side doesn’t want to play fair, we are your law firm. We show them we will not fall for the same old tricks or let our clients get pushed around. We love to fight, and we have the resources to put up a strong offense to help you get justice.

What Makes Us Different?
Quite simply, our approach is extremely aggressive. We prepare every case like we’re going to present it in front of a jury. Not every law firm will do that. Our reputation is so well-known for high-profile, high-stakes cases that other law firms and individuals outside of Texas have solicited our help.
We are also very selective about the cases we handle. Our focus is on complex and high-value cases. If your injuries have put you and your family into an impossible financial situation, those are the kinds of cases we love.
It does not matter what your personal financial situation is for hiring us. In fact, we enjoy working with clients who are facing opposition from big corporations, trucking companies, and institutions of power who want to escape responsibility for injuring you. We won’t let them.

Our Results Speak for Themselves
Our attorneys have a strong history of results from notable cases across a host of personal injury claims. We have represented clients in suits against Ford Motor Company related to the Ford Explorer, taking one case to a significant verdict against Ford itself. Ford ultimately settled with our firm’s clients to their satisfaction.
The firm represented a Texas City family in pursuing claims against the Texas City Independent School District related to alleged sexual assault of a special needs child. Among other things, the settlement resulted in the school changing its policies pertaining to the investigation, prevention and detection of sexual abuse in the school.
The firm was previously retained by a Friendswood, Texas, family that owned and operated a dry cleaning business. Their dry cleaning machine spewed hot cleaning fluid, burning one of the owners on over 60% of his body.
The suit resulted in a financial settlement for the family and, as part of the settlement, the manufacturer performed a mandatory retrofit on all its machines in an effort to prevent similar events in the future.
How Long Do I Have to File My Claim?
If you live in Texas, most personal injury claims have a two-year statute of limitations under Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code § 16.003 as of 2022. This means your lawsuit must start before this deadline or the courts can throw out your case for taking too long to file.
There is a major exception for sex crime cases. For adults, there is a five-year statute of limitations. Most child sexual abuse cases have a 30-year limit. Still, you should not delay speaking with a personal injury lawyer in Texas even if you have a lot of time.
By starting your case early, it’s easier to get evidence while memories are fresh, and this can lead to larger settlements. You do not have to be out of the hospital before speaking with us. If you can hold a clear conversation, we can discuss your case with you.
