If you have been in an accident caused by someone else’s carelessness or negligence, a personal injury attorney at the Amaro Law Firm in Alvin, TX, can help you obtain the compensation and justice you deserve.
Personal Injury Lawyers in Alvin, Texas
At the Amaro Law Firm, our personal injury attorneys handle many types of accident cases.
Here are some examples:
- Rideshare accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Auto accidents
- Wrongful death
Rideshare accidents involve companies such as Uber or Lyft. After an accident, the rideshare driver’s personal insurance provider may be held liable for damages since they are independent contractors and not rideshare employees. A rideshare company can also be held liable if they are found negligent or the rideshare driver was uninsured or their insurance policy did not cover the total cost of damages.
Motorcycles do not provide the same type of protection that cars do, so injuries from motorcycle accidents can be severe and life-changing. After a motorcycle accident, a personal injury attorney can help you recover compensation for your medical bills and other costs.
Truck accidents can happen when a truck driver is tired, distracted, or not following traffic laws. A personal injury attorney at the Amaro Law Firm knows how to investigate this type of complex accident to identify all liable parties. We will hold the truck driver and other liable parties responsible for their negligence and ensure you receive maximum compensation for your injuries and other losses.
Car accidents happen all the time. If the other driver caused the traffic collision, our legal team will:
- Investigate the accident
- Gather vital evidence
- File paperwork
- Identity all liable parties
- Negotiate with the insurance company
- File a lawsuit and represent you in court, if necessary
If a loved one dies due to the negligence of another, a personal injury attorney can help the surviving family members file a claim or wrongful death lawsuit. A wrongful death settlement can help families financially recover after the unexpected loss of a loved one and can cover funeral costs, burial expenses, medical bills, loss of love and companionship, and more.

Accident Injury Financial Compensation
Economic damages are those that have a specific monetary value and can be quantified through bills, receipts, or other financial records.
Non-economic damages do not have a specific monetary value and are more subjective in nature. These types of damages are intended to compensate a person for the intangible effects of an injury or illness.
Past and Future Medical Expenses
This can include the cost of medical treatment, such as hospital stays, surgery, and therapy.
If a person is unable to work as a result of an injury, they may be entitled to compensation for the wages they would have earned had they been able to work.
If a person’s property is damaged or destroyed as a result of an accident or other incident, they may be entitled to compensation to repair or replace the property.
Loss of Earning Capacity
If a person’s ability to earn a living is impaired as a result of an injury or illness, they may be entitled to compensation for the future loss of income.
Pain and Suffering
This can include physical pain and other forms of suffering that are caused by an injury.
Emotional distress can include things like anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder that are caused by an injury or illness.
Loss of Enjoyment of Life
Loss of enjoyment of life can include the inability to participate in activities that a person enjoyed before an injury or illness, such as hobbies, sports, and social events.
Loss of Consortium
Loss of consortium usually refers to the loss of companionship, love, and emotional support of a spouse or family member as a result of an injury or illness.
It’s important to note that the compensation available and the calculation of the damages will vary depending on the specific circumstances of the case. A lawyer at the Amaro Law Firm will negotiate with the insurance company to hold the liable parties accountable and help you recover maximum compensation for your losses.
