When someone suffers an injury as the result of somebody else's action or negligence it may be expected that the person or their insurance company will step up and offer a fair settlement. Unfortunately, that rarely happens. In fact, people often refuse to accept responsibility and the insurance companies themselves profit from under compensating injury victims. Insurance companies will typically do everything they can to take advantage of you and to effect the lowest possible settlement, while attempting to elicit statements from you that will damage your position if you ultimately decide to go to the courts.
Brent M. Cordell practices exclusively in the area of personal injury law. His number one focus is helping people with severe injuries get the legal representation they desire. Throughout his career, Mr. Cordell has helped thousands of injured people; if you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, by a defective product or by the prescription use of a dangerous drug Brent Cordell can help you get the just compensation you deserve.
An experienced personal injury attorney has the skills required to help individuals file claims for many specific types of injuries caused by accidents or situations that may arise due to the negligence of another party, such as slip and fall accidents or dog bites. In most cases both State laws and local ordinances exist to ensure that property owners are held responsible for damages due to proven negligence and Brent Cordell has the knowledge and experience required in these cases to pursue the maximum compensation possible.
Companies that manufacture or sell products to the public are legally responsible to ensure that they are safe. If their products cause injuries or illnesses to consumers, victims have legal recourse to obtain compensation for their damages by filing claims under the product liability law. This includes claims against pharmaceutical companies for dangerous drugs, drug recalls, and pharmaceutical injuries.
In Texas, "motor vehicle" accidents may involve anything from personal watercraft to motorcycles and buses. Vehicle and other traffic incidents are one of the leading causes of injury and death in the United States, and pose devastating consequences for victims and their families. Costly medical bills, loss of work and the overall impact on a victim's quality of life make these experiences incredibly difficult and the additional stress involved in complicated and frustrating legal process can exacerbate the struggles faced by victims.
If you have been injured in an accident involving a private or commercial vehicle, motorcycle, railroad company or plane crash, Brent Cordell can explain what you can expect at every step of your personal injury case, and will take action on your behalf; researching the law, interviewing witnesses, collecting records and negotiating with insurers and opposing counsel.
If you or a loved one has suffered an on-the-job injury, you may be entitled to compensation beyond what your employer provides: not all employers in Texas subscribe to a workers' compensation insurance plan. Even if they do, Workers' Compensation is often not sufficient to address the extent of the injuries. If you were injured at work, you may be thinking about whether or not you should file suit: you need to be informed about your legal options, and we provide a free case assessment so that you may take the right legal action after an accident. Houston, Texas has an unique industrial infrastructure, and due to our experience in the Houston area we also specialize in representing offshore workers, refinery workers and construction workers throughout Texas.
Unfortunately, even with our advanced facilities and growing reputation in the field of medicine accidents and negligence may still occur. Nobody plans for errors in their medical procedures and they can lead to severe health complications, staggering medical bills and loss of quality of life. Studies have shown that patients harmed in medical procedures rarely sue for damages even though they may deserve compensation. If you or someone you care for has been a victim of Medical Malpractice, birth injuries or nursing home abuse you should speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your legal rights to compensation are fully assessed and protected.
