Houston Personal Injury Attorney - Daragh Carter
As a Houston personal injury attorney, Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Personal Injury Trial Law, I provide professional, effective and personalized representation for injured and bereaved individuals and families in Houston, Harris County and throughout Texas. My practice is focused exclusively on representing injured people. I represent clients during the initial insurance claims process, in civil lawsuits and in jury trials. Over my career I have helped over one thousand injured clients and I have an active civil trial practice in Houston, Texas. I was voted a Top Lawyer for Personal Injury in 2013 and again in 2014 by Houstonia Magazine, and I have the maximum possible AVVO rating of 10.0. I was also named a "Rising Star" by Texas Super Lawyers Magazine, a rating achieved by less than 2% of the lawyers in Texas.
If you have been seriously injured by a third party, chances are you will have to deal with an insurance company and probably several insurance claim adjusters. It is important to understand you are at a significant disadvantage: insurance companies have virtually unlimited resources available to them. If you opt to handle your personal injury claim by yourself, the insurance company's superior knowledge of the process gives
them an edge. Insurance companies also have a built-in conflict of interest. An insurance company's business objective (making a handsome profit) is incompatible with paying money on your claim.
One of the most important times to get expert legal advice in a personal injury matter is at the very beginning of the process. An experienced personal injury attorney should fully explain the process to a client, help avoid the common pitfalls and efficiently work toward the end goal: a fair and reasonable settlement of the claim. Something I really enjoy about my job is ensuring my clients are not taken advantage of because they are unfamiliar with the law and not sure of their legal rights.
If you are in need of a Houston personal injury attorney because you have suffered damages due to the negligence of a third party, call or email me or submit your case through the online form. I would be glad to evaluate your case at no charge and offer some initial guidance. No attorney can guarantee a specific result, but I can guarantee I work extremely hard to make sure my clients are fairly and reasonably compensated for their damages.
