Our client reported a claim to Foremost Insurance after a massive hailstorm hit his Fort Worth, TX neighborhood on March 16, 2016 damaging his roof, siding, fence, and leaving water penetration inside his home. Foremost Insurance sent out a field adjuster to estimate the damages of the property. A damage estimate was then mailed to the client detailing a loss of $8,790, and after the deductible and depreciation was subtracted, the client received a check in the mail for $6,535. Upon contacting our firm, the client did not have the means to fully repair the roof, the damaged siding and other issues such as water penetration inside the home. Foremost was adamant that they processed the claim timely, issued a fair payment to the client and didn’t act in bad faith. Foremost repeatedly mentioned that this homeowner’s claim is based on an Actual Cash Value policy. With that, any visible wear and tear to the home devalues recovery from a filed claim. Unless the property is either brand new, or in pristine condition, Actual Cash Value policies are a determining factor to a client’s recovery. The firm sent out an independent contractor to review and estimate the actual damages which was sent to the Foremost adjuster accompanying a settlement demand letter. Citing the ACV policy, and the aforementioned payment already forwarded to the client, Foremost requested a re-inspection of the property to make additional payment considerations of any damages they may have left out of their initial insurance estimate. After 2 months of diligent, cordial, and progressive negotiation with the adjuster at Foremost, we recovered new money well beyond the original payment.
Our clients filed a claim with Farmers Insurance after a massive hailstorm hit his Fort Worth, TX neighborhood on March 17, 2016, damaging their roof such that water penetrated inside their home. Farmers Insurance sent out a field adjuster to estimate the damages. A copy of the damage estimate of and a check payment of $2,657 was mailed directly to the clients after the deductible and depreciation was subtracted. Because this payment could not pay for the repairs, they hired Amaro Law Firm and we submitted a demand letter to Farmers with a damage estimate from an independent contractor. Farmers requested a re-inspection of the property with the independent contractor present to review the actual damages with their own field adjuster. Farmers was quick to point out this homeowners policy is an Actual Cash Value policy, which means that wear and tear of the property are a factor in determining how much the client is reimbursed for property damage. Farmers and the firm were able to reach an amicable agreement on a substantial settlement, after 2 months of negotiation. The clients were able to complete the repairs to their property.
Our client filed a claim with Anchor Insurance after receiving damage to her San Antonio home from a hailstorm on April 12, 2016. The damages included her roof, broken windows, broken roof turbins and damage to a shed in her backyard. The Amaro Law Firm sent an independent contractor estimate to the client along with a settlement demand letter. Anchor Insurance responded with a payment of $6,296 to settle the claim. After careful dialogue with our client, she admitted that the recovery would not repair her home. We cordially worked with Anchor Insurance and agreed to pre-litigation mediation 4 days before Christmas. At mediation, our firm successfully negotiated a settlement that greatly exceeded the client’s expectation.
In January of 2015 in Victoria County, Texas on Highway 77, our clients were in a major wreck with an 18 wheeler. The 18 wheeler was driving in the fog that morning and the driver did not see our clients coming down the highway before pulling off a side road. As a result, our clients slammed on their brakes and struck the rear of the trailer. Our clients were a sweet retired couple traveling travelling to see family with their dog that early morning in a small passenger vehicle which was totaled. The passenger received bruising all over her body and both of them suffered TBI symptoms after the wreck. The truck driver, on the other hand, was driving when he likely was fatigued as he had been driving for pay over his federal law limitations that morning. The trucking company and their insurance lawyers tried to deny fault at first. Then, they tried to deny that our clients were hurt a bad as they claimed. In deposition, we discovered that the trucking company was paying their drivers for “personal conveyance” time in payroll records which was not shown in the driver logs. Also, the data did not match the electronic logs obtained from the electronic logging company, Teletrac, so there were three different stories about how much the truck driver had driven. What was clear though, the driver should not have pulled out into traffic and cause people to slam on their brakes. After a few months of litigation, our 18 wheeler wreck lawyers were able to recover a substantial sum to fairly compensate our clients for their injuries. We also heard the trucking company changed their policies to make sure the drivers logged all of their time they were paid to drive, including time paid for “personal conveyance.”
In February of 2016, our client was hit head on by a drunk driver on Westheimer in Houston, Texas. The drunk driver was arrested but he did not have much in insurance. She was taken by ambulance to St. Joseph’s Hospital. As a result of the wreck, she incurred substantial medical bills. Our personal injury lawyers negotiated down her medical bills and were able to settle the case free of medical liens.
In December of 2016, our firm resolved the personal injury claim of a female truck driver who was rear ended by a Toyota Tundra pickup. The pickup skid approximately 30 feet before slamming into the back of the 18 wheeler. Based on the amount of milk and cereal on the windshield of the pickup’s windshield, it was apparent that the driver was distracted by the bowl of cereal he brought along to eat on the drive to work that morning. As a result of the hard impact, our client suffered aggravation to her lower back which required invasive surgical procedures prescribed by her treating physicians. The defense hired by Farmers Insurance was focused on the lack of any significant damages to the back of the 18 wheeler’s trailer although their client’s truck was completely destroyed. Failing to understand the basic physics concepts, they hired a well-known engineer who has made a career working for insurance companies to opine that the “delta-v” of the pickup truck was too small to cause any injuries to the trucker. However, in his deposition, he could not show the math in how he calculated delta-v or show the values he used in his calculations. Because he could not show his math and because he based his opinions on just photographs, the judge prohibited him from testifying without showing the math. Farmers Insurance tendered the policy limits before trial.
The day before trial in November of 2016, Allstate Insurance’s lawyers decided to do the right thing and pay for all of our clients’ damages resulting from a car wreck off I-45 in Houston, Texas. Our clients were driving north on a feeder road to I-45 when Defendant, a driver in her mid-80s, suddenly moved from a dead stop in the center lane across all the lanes of traffic towards a James Coney Island entrance. Our clients tried to veer out of the way but struck her vehicle. They suffered whiplash injuries and Allstate’s lawyers denied everything as usual until we discovered that the reason their insured made such a dangerous lane change was because had cataracts and glaucoma. They denied and then delayed resolution of the claims until the very last minute. In the end, they paid what was fair to our clients.
After an agent of Met Lloyds inspected our client’s property, the insurance company refused to tender payment for full damages owed to our client under the policy by claiming the damages were not caused by a covered loss, in this case, windstorm damage. Our client retained the services of an engineer to establish for Met Lloyds that the damages sustained were caused by the high wind, a covered loss. Instead of hiring its own engineer, Met Lloyds and its adjuster simply restated its denial under the policy. Met Lloyds investigation was outcome-oriented and its failure to retain an engineer to investigate the claim conclusively shows that Met Lloyds’ and its agent failed to properly investigate this claim. Subsequent to the inspection, Met Lloyds and its agent issued a damage estimate that failed to fully quantify and explain the damage done to the structures located on the property, thus demonstrating that they did not conduct a thorough and fair investigation of the premises. Met Lloyds’ agent attributed the damage to the pool, wooden fence and the decorative fence were caused by water damage and/or earth movement, both of which may be excluded events under the client’s policy. The agent also chose to ignore that the client’s next neighbor’s wind damage claim for their playhouse, which was adjacent to clients’ fence, was covered by their insurance company (Traveler’s). In fact, at least one of the shingles was embedded in clients’ fence indicating the significantly high wind speeds and wind damage caused in the area. Rather than employ the services of an engineer to fully investigate the cause of this windstorm damage, Met Lloyds simply found exclusionary language by which it intended to deny the claim. Met Lloyds and its agent failed to fairly evaluate and adjust our client’s claim as they are obligated to do under the terms of the policy and Texas law. By failing to properly investigate the claim and by issuing a full denial of coverage, Met Lloyds and its agent engaged in unfair settlement practices by misrepresenting material facts to our client, such as the true cause of their loss. Met Lloyds and its agent also failed to provide our client a reasonable explanation as to why they were not compensating our client’s covered losses. A lawsuit was filed, and the case was settled before trial.
Our single mother client was walking on a sidewalk in front of a major luxury car dealership with her teenage daughter when she was violently struck by a luxury SUV exiting the dealership. The driver claims he didn’t see her walking down the sidewalk before pulling out of the driveway although he admitted there were no visual obstructions. Our client was violently knocked to the ground after the SUV pinned her foot under a tire and then struck her with the corner of the SUV. Without authorization, the employees of the car dealership then videotaped our client as she sat on the ground and received medical attention from paramedics. Our client suffered painful low back disc injuries and received extensive medical care over several months to recover. The insurance adjuster would not admit liability without our client providing a “recorded statement” and taunted her to file a lawsuit. The adjuster bragged that they had “fantastic lawyers” to defend them. Needless to say, the lawyers were not “fantastic” by any stretch of the imagination. Instead, they were bullies and could not follow the basic rules of litigation which required the judge to step in to enforce the rules. After a few months of litigation, the car dealer’s lawyers came to their senses and requested mediation. At mediation in November of 2016, the case was resolved for a confidential sum which made our client very happy.
In February of 2015, our husband-wife clients and their two children were hit by a Toyota Sequoia that ran a red light in Houston, Texas. The impact was so violent that it sent our client’s Lexus SUV spinning into a light pole. All four members of the family were taken to the hospital. The father required shoulder surgery, left arthroscopic, at the hospital. The mother broke her arm. Both of the parents received extensive medical treatment over several months’ time. The young children also were injured and treated and Texas Children’s Hospital. Defendant had USAA Insurance and our clients had Liberty Mutual Insurance. After months of negotiations with the insurance companies and the medical providers, our car wreck legal team was able to resolve the claims for full value.
In October of 2016, a Harris County jury returned a verdict in favor of our client who was broadsided by a woman in the museum district of Houston, Texas. Our client was a young attorney who was on his way to pick up his son for baseball practice. As he went through an intersection, a car driven by the Defendant came out of nowhere and struck him. Both vehicles were totaled. He suffered painful disc bulges to the cervical portion of his spine. He feared needles and did not like taking medicine so did not get the epidural steroid injections suggested by his treating physicians. Before he hired the Houston personal injury lawyers, he attempted to handle the case himself. However, Allstate insurance and their in-house lawyers treated him unfairly and took advantage of his lack of personal injury law. Fortunately, a neighbor of our client referred him to our firm and were able to get him the justice her deserved in a one day trial in Houston.
In December of 2015, our client was a victim of a violent car wreck in Mount Pleasant in Titus County, Texas when he was rear ended by Mercedes SUV at a high rate of speed. Although our client refused to be taken by ambulance to the hospital, our client’s injuries were quite severe which he discovered when he later sought medical treatment. He suffered multiple disc protrusions in his cervical and lumbar regions, and his medical bills were costly. Fortunately, the defendant was insured, and the car wreck lawyers at Amaro Law Firm were able to negotiate a fair settlement.
In September of 2014, our client was severely injured in a violent car wreck in San Antonio, Texas on Loop 1604. Here, the at-fault 20-year old driver was “looking down” when traffic came to a stop and she was not able to stop before rear ending our client at a high rate of speed which caused him to be pushed into the vehicle in front of him. As a result of the wreck, our client incurred significant medical bills. We took over the file from another firm and helped the client recover from the at fault driver and on his underinsured motorist claim (UIM). The car wreck lawyer team at the Amaro Law Firm then negotiated down the medical bills to make sure all medical liens were paid and released.
Our client was driving a Freightliner tractor on the feeder road of E Sam Houston Tollway at US 90 when a car traveling on US Highway 90 ran a red light and struck the front end of the tractor trailer. The impact caused our client’s tractor trailer to veer off the road and flip over. The other driver was found at fault. His insurance company tendered all of the insurance limits. Our client was in the course and scope of his duties at work and it was discovered that his employer misrepresented to him that he had worker’s compensation coverage. Instead, the employer had forced him to pay premiums for an occupational benefit plan that provided much less coverage that worker’s compensation. After lengthy legal battles with the benefit plan and employer, the parties were able to resolve our client’s claims in December of 2016.
In August of 2016, our firm resolved a large UIM claim against Amica Insurance. Our client was referred by another law firm to assist with her claims against another driver and Amica Insurance arising from a November 2015 car wreck near the intersection of Barker Cypress and Highway 290 in Houston, Texas. The at-fault driver, for whatever reason, tried to make a U-turn all the way from the right lane and our client collided with him. She was traveling with her daughter at the time and pregnant. Our Houston personal injury lawyers resolved the claim in only a few months.
Allstate and its agent denied payment on a hail claim that damaged our client’s property. At the initial inspection, Allstate’s agent did not even get on the roof to assess the damage, and failed to inspect other damaged portions of the property. Allstate and its agent told our client that there was no hail damage and concluded that there was no recovery for repair. Our client refused to accept this decision and requested a re-inspection of the property. Allstate used the same agent but this time accompanied by a representative from a claims service. Allstate’s agent went on to the roof at the re-inspection where damage was indeed found and reported. However, Allstate and its agent stated the damage was our client’s doing and accused our client of fraud. Allstate, again, completely denied the claim but this time cancelling the client’s policy before its expiration, and left our client uninsured based upon fraudulent and inaccurate statements by Allstate and its adjusters. The claim was litigated and settled via mediation giving the client the means to replace his roof.
In April of 2016, our brain injury lawyers resolved a lawsuit against a major auto dealership arising from their dealer trade driver who inexplicably went into oncoming traffic causing catastrophic injuries to our client such as traumatic brain injury. Both lanes of traffic on this highway had speed limits of 60 mph. The dealership’s driver was in a Jeep Wrangler and our client was on her way to work in a full sized pickup truck. Our client’s airbags deployed when she was hit head on but she struck her head hard enough to be knocked unconscious. The other driver was able to crawl out of the jeep but had an altered mental status according to witnesses. Both were taken to the hospital. Our client remained in the hospital for over a month because she suffered multiple fractures and internal injuries. A metal rod was placed in her leg and she was forced to use a walker for nearly a year even though she was only 27 and healed quickly. The car dealership hired two law firms to defend them and the driver. It was learned in litigation that the car dealership did little to make sure they only put safe drivers on the road. Essentially, they just made sure elderly drivers they hired to drive sometimes over 10 hours a day had a driver’s license and a pulse. They provided no training and did no health checks on these drivers they paid only $8/hour. Instead of owning up to their mistake, they spend over $100,000.00 on doctors to try and claim that our client’s brain injury healed. The judge saw right through their nonsense and struck one of their experts and limited the testimony of the brain surgeon they hired from Methodist Hospital. Both of these experts are notorious experts who make millions of dollars to falsely claim that people “healed” from their brain injuries without peer reviewed literature to support their opinions. They abuse the privileges of their medical licenses and associations with prestigious medical facilities such as Methodist Hospital for millions of dollars in compensation. The brain injury lawyer team assembled by Amaro Law Firm put an end to their years of wrongful conduct by showing the court the extent of their deceit. Shortly before trial and after a full day mediation, the parties agreed to a confidential structured settlement which provided the compensation necessary to take care of our client’s needs for life.
Our client injured her lower back in a wreck on Williams Trace Boulevard in Sugarland, Texas in September of 2015 when a car ran a red light and struck her vehicle at a high rate of speed. She was taken by ambulance to St. Luke’s in Sugarland. According to an MRI, she suffered a disc protrusion at L5-S1 and a 2 mm right paracentral protrusion at C7-T1. Our client was young small business owner whose pain interfered with her daily living and ability to work long hours. Our client’s pain never went away and she sought help finding a new medical provider who could give her the medical attention she needed. She also was not happy with the legal representation she had with another law firm. She came to our firm and we were able to correct the course of action for her legal representation and her medical treatment. She received treatment from a well-regarded medical provider on Highway 6 in Sugarland who performed laser therapy and lumbar decompression therapy on her lower back injuries. She also consulted with a well-known orthopedic surgeon in the Texas Medical Center about her options for surgery before becoming better through the treatment she received with our help. After she finished her treatment, we were able to resolve her claim for the policy limits which were not the minimum in Texas.
In March of 2015, our husband and wife clients were t-boned by a Dodge Ram truck in Houston, Texas. Although the at fault driver admitted to running a red light, his insurance company did not want to accept full responsibility for the damages to our client. His insurance company, American Alternative Insurance Company, finally did the right thing and paid fair compensation after months of fighting which satisfied our clients.
In February of 2016, the personal injury lawyers at Amaro Law Firm resolved a substantial electrocution injury case shortly before trial against a general contractor and one of the state’s largest commercial property management companies. Our client was an electrician asked to inspect a build-out electrical job which did not pass the City of Houston’s inspection. The project received a red tag due to improper grounding of the gutter box behind the shopping center. The copper from the ground wire was apparently stolen and not guarded. The general contractor on the build out requested that our client who worked for a subcontractor find out what it would take to pass inspection. Without notifying the property manager or owner, the general contractor asked our client to go behind the shopping center and open the gutter box. Shortly after opening the box, it exploded causing significant injuries to our client such from the arc. Those injuries included second and third degree burns to his face and arms. He also suffered nerve damage to his forearm. Fortunately, his employer had worker’s compensation which covered most of the medical care. However, worker’s compensation does not pay for all of our client’s damages so he hired Amaro Law Firm to help him. After nearly 2 years of litigation in which the property manager’s own electrician testified against them, the parties were able to reach an amicable resolution which fairly compensated our client. The settlement was confidential.
Our client was a retired corporate lawyer who worked at a major Texas law firm. In October of 2011, she was driving near the medical center when a careless driver turned in front of her and failed to yield the right of way, thereby causing a serious wreck which required months of medical treatment. The at-fault driver attempted to blame our client for driving too fast and made excuses that the curve in the road prevented him from seeing our client, but he finally conceded fault in his deposition. Although our client was a lawyer, these type of cases require the expertise of experienced personal injury attorneys who know the tricks of insurance defense attorneys. Here, her lack of legal knowledge in this area was taken advantage of by the other lawyer. Fortunately, she came to us in time and we were able to resolve her claim for a fair and reasonable sum.
A large and national fitness club chain employed babysitters as an added benefit to their gym in order to entice members with children to join their club and pay monthly membership dues. The gym employed young and untrained individuals to run the so-called daycare. They did not prohibit cell phone use although they were responsible for watching several children of all ages, including toddlers, like the toddler of our client whose arm was broken while in their care. The employees claimed they were not aware of an injury to the toddler when the parents returned from the hospital and demanded to see a video of what happened. The gym told them they would have to talk to the lawyers. So they did. They called us and we were able to discover what happened after requesting the court to order the gym to turn over the video of the daycare at the gym. Shortly after, the case settled for a confidential sum.
As a result of a December 2014 wreck whereby a drunk driver failed to yield the right of way when he crossed Highway 90 near the Grand Parkway in Fort Bend County Texas in front of our client on a Harley Davidson motorcycle, the Amaro Law Firm was called for help to hold the responsible party accountable for the harm he caused. Our client refused to be taken to the hospital after the wreck and sought medical treatment later when the paid did not go away. After receiving medical treatment that helped him, we were able to resolve his claim for all of the available insurance policy limits of State Farm Insurance.
In April of 2015, our clients suffered serious hail storm damages to their roof in Katy, Texas. The insurance company denied the claim, asserting that the damages were not hail related and/or were pre-existing. Although most of the other houses in the neighborhood were getting new roofs, the insurance company stood their ground. Our clients knew of our experience handling first party claims such as claims from Hurricane Ike, where Mr. Amaro and his tea took the first case to trial and obtained a substantial verdict. In mediation, the insurance company finally agreed to pay a fair amount to our clients so that they could fully repair their roof and also pay our firm for its services. In Texas, attorneys’ fees are recoverable from an insurance company who acts in bad faith in claims handling.
In November of 2011, our client was rear ended by another car on Ella Boulevard. The impact was so severe that it sent our client’s car off the road into a tree. The defendant claimed that our client had changed lanes in front of her and that caused her to rear end our client. The story did not add up as the defendant also claimed my client was driving faster than her in depositions. Also, the cell phone records showed that the defendant was up late on her cell phone until 3 am and this wreck happened early in the morning. Literally the night before trial was to start, the Allstate insurance lawyers finally agreed to settle for a fair and reasonable sum.
Our trucking lawyer team tried an 18 wheeler accident case to verdict. In this case, our truck driver client from Houston, Texas was rear ended by another 18 wheeler in Mississippi. The other truck driver drove for a major 18 wheeler company. The other driver must have been going fast and fell asleep at the wheel as he struck our client hard enough to total both vehicles while our client’s vehicle was moving. It was a foggy morning and the truck wreck occurred on a country highway. The other driver passed unfortunately as a result of a fire that broke out in his cab as he was trapped din the vehicle and our client was unable to get him out in time. Our client’s eat broke off inside the cab causing our client to suffered injuries all over his body. Our client was represented by another law firm in Houston and terminated them shortly before trial. With less than 30 days before trial and no continuance granted by the court, our trucking lawyers walked into court and received a verdict in favor of our client which compensated him for all of his medical bills and the pain and suffering he endured as a result of the wreck. This case is notable because no depositions were taken before trial due to the court not granting a continuance and the prior law firm conducting no depositions. The defense called an expert orthopedic, Dr. J. Michael Graham, of the Woodlands, Texas to testify on the stand that our client’s claimed injuries were not claimed by the wreck and were a result of degenerative conditions (despite all the medical records before the wreck indicating our client was asymptomatic in his back). He was thoroughly cross examined live and the jury did not consider his biased testimony to be credible regarding our client’s injured claimed in trial.
The night before trial, Allstate’s lawyers called the Amaro Law Firm to settle this lawsuit arising from a wreck where a woman rear ended our client in north Houston. Both vehicles were moving, but the Defendant tried to blame our client by claiming she cut her off. However, her story did not add up and the Amaro Law Firm was able to punch large holes in her story so that the other side realized their exposure at trial. Although the Amaro Law Firm preferred to try the case, it is ultimately up to the client to accept or reject offers based upon our legal evaluation. Here, the client opted to settled and not take the risk of trial after weighing the pros and cons of the risks in a jury trial.
After nearly two years of litigation with Allstate in a case where a woman ran a red light and broadsided our client, they finally agreed to pay for her medical bills and other damages as result of this wreck. It was not until the deposition of the Defendant that Allstate finally changed their tune and offered fair and just compensation to settle the claims. Although the Defendant ran a red light and paid for the ticket, she refused to admit she was at fault for the wreck since she “tried to stop.”
Truck Wreck – 4 Injured Clients
In Dimmit County, four men were traveling on a rural road when an 18 wheeler decided to ignore a stop sign from a side road from an oil gas field and pull in front of them. The driver was unable to stop in time before hitting the 18 wheeler. The men all suffered neck and back injuries in the wreck. A few of the men suffered herniated discs in their backs which required epidural steroid injections (ESIs). At first, the trucking company denied full responsibility, arguing they had enough time to stop and should have been paying better attention. However, the Amaro Law Firm’s investigation determined the truck driver should never have been on the road in the first place as he had multiple DWI’s and other criminal offenses. A lawsuit was filed and a settlement was reach quickly thereafter. The settlement was enough to cover all of their medical bills and included compensation for pain and suffering and physical impairment they suffered and continue to suffer.
Confidential Settlement 7 Days Before Trial
Truck Wreck – Wrongful Death
Two teenage boys were passengers in their friend’s car on a dark and rainy night in the country outside of Houston. The driver ran a stop sign and subsequently struck an 18 wheeler. The two passengers were tragically were killed in the wreck and their families sought the help of the Amaro Law Firm to find out what happened and how the wreck could have been prevented. In sum, how the wreck happened did not make sense because the truck driver claimed he never saw the car coming at a high rate of speed even though you can see for a long distance. If he did see keep a proper lookout as he was supposed to under the trucking training he had, he would have had time could have hit the brakes and prevent the wreck. The truck driver failed to take any preventative measures before impact. Subsequently, it was discovered that the truck driver was under the influence of alcohol, had multiple health issues that he never disclosed to the medical examiner who provided him his medical qualifications, and had multiple moving violations, wrecks, and health issues that made him a danger to others on the road. In short, he never should have been on the road in the first place. The trucking company endangered the public when they chose to keep letting him drive for them despite the known dangers. Shortly before trial, the trucking company’s insurance company finally conceded liability for the truck company’s decision to keep this dangerous driver and settled the case for the maximum insurance limits available.
Truck Wreck Verdict – Neck and Back Injuries, and PTSD
Confidential Settlement Post-Verdict
After feeling that his previous counsel was not representing his interests to the best of their ability, our client terminated them and found the Amaro Law Firm on Avvo.com after reading the reviews online. Our firm was hired about 30 days before trial and the court would not grant a continuance so that the necessary work that was not completed could take place before trial. While driving his 18 wheeler one early foggy morning in Mississippi, our client was rear-ended by another 18 wheeler driven by a driver for an international trucking company. The impact was violent enough to cause our client’s seatbelt to break loose and his seat to break off the bolts. Our client suffered neck, back, and knee injuries. The truck driver who rear ended him sadly was stuck in the cab of his truck after the impact and burned to death right before our client’s eyes while he helplessly witnessed his tragic death.
The case was tried live with no depositions of the opposing party’s witnesses or experts. After a 2 day trial, our client was vindicated with a verdict in his favor which included his full medical bills and compensation for pain and suffering and impairment. The trucking company threatened an appeal and the case was confidentially settled post-verdict for the full value of the verdict.
Construction Zone Wreck – Verdict
One misty night in Katy, Texas on Kingsland Blvd., Mr. Blevins was traveling to pick up his teenage son to pick up his son to go see a movie. As he was driving down Kingsland, he came upon a slow moving vehicle in the left lane which appeared to be lost, distracted, or slowing down to make a turn. As he looked over his shoulder to make sure he was clear to move over, he suddenly struck a large 26,000 pound Skytrak vehicle moving less than 15 mph on the road. There was no notice by way of lighting or “construction work” signs. Because it was partial frontal impact on the front of his vehicle, the cabin of the suburban was breached on the driver’s side of his vehicle and the vehicle spun around the Skytrak. The Skytrak did not move from the impact. Mr. Blevins suffered severe fractures to his legs which required multiple surgeries, including internal fixation, debridement, and vacuum pumps due to recurring staph infections. Although the doctors advised amputation was necessary, Mr. Blevins kept on fighting and had a bone graft procedure which prevented the requirement of amputation of his left knee down.
At trial, the Defendants Winco Masonry and their operator Alejandro Sanchez refused to admit any responsibility for negligently using the Skytrak off the job site on a dark rainy road without any warnings to the public such as signs, flashers, or escorts. The general contractor, Pepper Lawson Construction, also refused to accept any responsibility for allowing their subcontractors from running amuck on the public roads at night in the rain.
The jury did not buy their unremorseful, unapologetic, and conflicted arguments proffered by their go-to attorney Michael Winchester and returned a verdict in Mr. Blevin’s favor. However, the verdict was not enough as the jury was persuaded to reduce their verdict due to improper closing arguments which were prohibited by the Court in pre-trial arguments. In short, Mr. Winchester argued that Mr. Blevins was intoxicated and speeding before he rear ended their vehicle. Now, the verdict is being appealed so that Mr. Blevins may receive the full justice he is entitled to receive under the letter of the law.
Our client was on the first day of his job as a hand on a well site in east Texas. He was asked to help clean the mud pit. However, no one told him it had caustic acids in the pit before he got in it. The acids burned through his boots and began to burn the skin on his legs causing severe pain and scarring. He was able to crawl out and asked for help. Instead of proper medical attention, the supervisor poured vinegar on his burns which caused even more pain and caused him to lose feeling in his legs. Our client found an attorney who referred his case to our firm since we handle work injuries in the oil and gas business. After years of litigation, the Amaro Law Firm was able to prove that the Defendants failed to properly train and supervise their workers of hazards on the job and also failed to warn of dangers they should have known about.
Our client’s son was a passenger in a day care van when the van was in a severe wreck. Their son suffered major facial injuries which left a permanent scar on his face. As a result, a lawsuit was filed to recover compensation for his injuries. The insurance companies tried to point fingers at each other to avoid liability. However, the lawsuit settled for the maximum amount available under the insurance policies. A guardian ad litem was appointed by the court so that the settlement of his claim could recover interest until he turns 18.
Hail Damage Claim Settlement
The Amaro Law Firm represented a doctor and his wife for extensive damages to their home from a hailstorm in Amarillo, Texas. The insurance company offered a meager sum of money to resolve their claim. The home was high valued and had a special tile roof. The entire neighborhood received new roofs, but our client’s insurance company did not want to pay for all of the damages to the roof, drywall, fence, and stucco siding. The Amaro Law Firm quickly filed suit for our clients and mediation was conducted soon thereafter. However, the insurance company still did not want to pay for all of the damages. After more litigation for a couple more months, the lawsuit was settled for several times the amount the insurance company offered these clients before we were hired. The clients were still able to get all of their damages repaired after attorneys’ fees and expenses.
Our client was hit head-on by a wrong way driver in Fort Bend County. The third party insurance company refused to pay for the full medical bills. After hiring the Amaro Law Firm, our client was able to recover for her injuries and medical bills.

Our client was working as a truck driver one morning when he came upon a vehicle which unexpectedly slammed on his brakes on Highway 46 south of Houston. Our client was able to come to a safe stop without striking the vehicle because he had a safe following distance and was keeping a proper lookout. However, the 18 wheeler behind him did not do the same. As a result, the 18 wheeler rear clipped the back of his trailer and caused tremendous damages to both vehicles.
Our clients had damages to their home as a result of a hailstorm in Amarillo, Texas. The insurance company refused to pay them just and fair compensation to repair their home. The clients found the Amaro Law Firm.

The compensation was enough to repair the home after attorneys’ fees and expenses.
18 Wheeler Wreck – Wrongful Death
Our client’s husband was involved in a tragic 18 wheeler accident in Mississippi when his front tire blew out without any warning. He was operating an 18 wheeler transporting gravel. The blow out caused him to lose control and careen off the road into a tree. The tractor trailer exploded. A good samaritan was able to pull him from the vehicle. However, the burns and injuries were severe. Our client’s husband survived multiple painful surgeries before succumbing to them weeks later. The tires were retrieved and examined which showed they were defective. The case settled for a confidential sum.
Our client safely pulled into an intersection while in the course and scope of his job after stopping at a stop sign. However, another vehicle approaching the stop sign at the intersection did not follow the law and struck our client with great speed. As a result, our client lost time off work due to his neck and back injuries. After months of medical treatment and a lawsuit being filed, the Amaro Law Firm was able to settle his claim for a sum which covered all of his medical bills and expenses as well as compensation for his pain and suffering and impairment.
Our client was traveling on Ranger Hill Road south of Fort Worth on rainy afternoon when she came upon an a18 wheeler which had jackknifed on the road. The 18 wheeler completely blocked the highway. She safely came to a stop behind the 18 wheeler. A few seconds later, another 18 wheeler came around the corner at a speed way too high for a wet and curvy road. This second 18 wheeler never even applied his brakes before slamming into the rear of her vehicle and crushing it between his vehicle and the other 18 wheeler. The Amaro Law Firm was hired within days and immediately took steps to preserve the evidence so the trucks could be inspected. In the inspections, it was determined that the second 18 wheeler driver had drug paraphernalia in his cabin. The data was downloaded off the truck and the speed and brake data showed he never hit his brakes and was exceeding the speed limit. Shortly thereafter, the case settled for a substantial sum which paid for the client’s medical bills for her neck and back injuries, pain and suffering, and the severe mental anguish she suffered as a result of the wreck.
Our two clients were sitting a red light when a SUV suddenly and violently rear ended them. The client suffered neck and back injuries. Although the Defendant admitted he was not paying attention until it was too late, Allstate insurance company still tried to low ball our clients.

Our clients were able to resolve their lawsuit and get all of their damages paid.
The Amaro Law Firm represented a client in Brazoria County, Texas that was involved in a major auto accident on March 10, 2013 at or near the intersection of State Highway 35 and FM 524. On the date of incident, the traffic signal at the intersection was not operating due to a power outage. Accordingly, TXDOT had placed stop signs in each direction at the intersection. Suddenly and without warning, a vehicle driven by Defendant on State Highway 35 failed to stop at the stop sign and violently collided into our client at a speed greater than 50 mph. The property damages were major and both vehicles were totaled. At the time of incident, it was discovered that Defendant did not possess a valid driver’s license nor did he own the car that he was driving. Rather, the vehicle was owned by another person, who was riding in the passenger seat at the time of incident. Based upon witness statements, it was proven that both of them reeked of the smell of marijuana. Once the police arrived to the scene, the other driver and his passenger decided to add insult to injury by making blatantly false statements to the police. One man first asserted to law enforcement that he was not driving the vehicle, but rather it was the owner of the vehicle. The cops, however, noticed that the driver had a bloody nose and facial injuries which directly matched a bloody face print on the interior windshield on the driver’s side. That is, the driver’s face smashed against the windshield because he was not wearing a seatbelt. The passenger, on the other hand, escaped the collision injury free. Realizing that law enforcement was did not believe story #1, they then claimed that they had the “green light” at the intersection. If they would have fact checked their lies before blurting out the same to the police (or were not under the influence of drugs), then they would have realized that it was impossible for them to have the green light because the intersection had no power. The case settled for every penny available under all of the insurance policies without a lawsuit being filed.
Our client was referred by a family member who we had represented in a trial. This client was in a car wreck in Beaumont, Texas where another vehicle rear ended him at a high rate of speed for no reason. Both vehicles were moving before the collision. The wreck was severe and caused significant injuries to our client when his vehicle was knocked off the highway. The insurance company for the Defendant was State Farm and they refused to accept full responsibility. As a result of the work by the Amaro Law Firm, the client received a settlement which covered all of his damages and injuries.
The trial lawyers at the Amaro Law Firm agreed to a commercial motor vehicle accident settlement that occurred on Memorial Drive in Houston, Texas, for a confidential sum.

Our client was unable to see the Bobcat until the last second, when the vehicle in front of her quickly changed lanes to avoid colliding with the slow-moving Bobcat. As a result, our client suffered severe injuries. The attorneys at the Amaro Law Firm were able to help her obtain fair compensation in the accident settlement before filing suit.
Settlement $65,000.00. Client netted $37,162.71 after attorneys’ fees and expenses.

The truck broadsided our client’s vehicle and severely injured his spine causing him to spend nearly two months in the hospital. Unfortunately, there was minimal insurance available and the landscaping company disputed liability. However, the effective representation of the legal team at the Amaro Law Firm was able to resolve the case for a sum which would provide for resolution of all hospital and insurance liens, continued medical treatment, and a trust for future economic needs.
Settlement Insurance Policy Limits
After more than one year of litigation, the trial lawyers at the Amaro Law Firm were able to resolve a car wreck case and reach an accident settlement for the total insurance policy limits. In this case, the insurance company hired lawyers to deny that insurance coverage should apply to the wreck because the driver was not “named” in the insurance policy. The driver actually fled the scene of the accident and was later found and arrested for DWI. The lawyers were able to demonstrate that the owner of the vehicle negligently entrusted the vehicle insured under his policy to the driver who had previous wrecks where he fled the scene and was arrested for DWI.
The car wreck lawyers at the Amaro Law Firm tried a car wreck case to verdict in Travis County, Texas. Prior to trial, the insurance company’s lawyers had offered only $1,500.00 to settle their client’s claims for back and neck injuries resulting from a rear end accident. Our client was involved in a car wreck on Mopac Expressway in Austin, Texas in November of 2008 after an AC company dropped a piece of AC equipment in the middle of the freeway, causing an emergency situation.
As it clearly was dangerous in the way the AC equipment was being hauled in the back of the truck, another AC company truck was following in case the AC unit fell out of the first truck. The AC company trucks stopped after the unit fell out and our client was able to stop without hitting anyone. However, another driver was not able to stop without hitting our client. The impact was so hard that his vehicle was totaled and pushed into the AC truck.
The other driver settled prior to trial but the AC company refused to make a reasonable offer. The jury awarded our client a verdict in his favor which was over $71,000.00 with court costs and pre-judgment interests. The client netted $23,469.86 from both parties after attorneys’ fees, expenses, and the jury award being split by 50% for each party. The other party settled before trial.

Verdict– Commercial Dispute
The trial lawyers at the Amaro Law Firm tried a commercial dispute case between two former business partners.

Verdict– Civil Dispute
In a small county court trial, the trial lawyers at the Amaro Law Firm represented the tenant in a landlord-tenant dispute. The case against landlords John Beddow and Tina Beddow was tried a to verdict. The jury found in favor of our client and awarded him compensation for the landlord’s wrongful acts, including the landlord’s withholding of money from the tenant’s security deposit to which they were not entitled.
The landlords claimed that they relied upon the representation of their lawyer, Faisal Shah. Mr. Shah testified that he never physically saw the damages and that he did not itemize all of the damages the landlords claimed in his alleged accounting of the deposit, as required by the Texas Property Code.
The jury examined evidence that included photographs of the residence’s poor condition before it was rented, testimony on how the landlords regularly kept other tenants’ deposits, and documents showing the landlords’ lack of response to basic tenant maintenance requests.
The landlords even paid their property manager, James D. Owens of the Houston Heights, Texas, $1,000.00 to testify for them. They also paid another witness to testify that some drapes suffered “heat damages.” On cross examination, Mr. Owens offered unsupportable and impeachable testimony based on his supposed experience as a property manager. Mr. Owens testified about the expensive charges he believed to be reasonable for patching “nail holes” and removing a “satellite dish”, even though he said the property was left in good and clean condition after the walk-through at the end of the lease.
The court entered a judgment on the verdict which also included pre-judgment interest and court costs. The Beddows retaliated against our client for standing up for his rights by filing a counter-suit. Their counter-suit requested over $50,000.00 in attorneys’ fees and a few hundred dollars in “extra” damages over the security deposit.
The jury disagreed with the Beddows and found that our client did not breach the lease agreement. The jury awarded the landlords zero dollars. The Beddows’ lawyer, James Bradley, also represented them in three other lawsuits they filed arising from another real estate deal. Mr. Bradley filed a motion for new trial and a motion to disregard the jury’s findings against his clients. Despite Mr. Bradley’s apparent efforts to save face with his clients in a losing cause, the Court denied their motions after oral argument, after which the Beddows quickly settled for nearly the entire judgment amount. In an ironic twist, the amount of the judgment was higher than the two offers our client made to settle his case before the verdict was rendered.
Settlement – Insurance Dispute
The insurance lawyers at the Amaro Law Firm helped our client recover a substantial sum from a car accident settlement in Laredo, Texas.

Settlement – Auto Accident

The cases each settled for a considerable and confidential sum.

The Defendants in this case were a multi-national company that hired drivers to service residential and commercial customers. In the car wreck, our client was an innocent front seat passenger in a small vehicle parked at a red light when the Defendants’ large work van blew through a red light at a high rate of speed and caused a multi-vehicle wreck. The Defendants’ vehicle hit one vehicle in the intersection before hitting our client head on and pushing her vehicle into other vehicles at the red light behind her. The collision was so violent that our client’s legs and knees were badly crushed and broken inside the vehicle, rendering her unable to walk and dependent on a wheelchair for the foreseeable future as she continues therapy and medical treatment.

In depositions, the Defendants’ corporate representatives folded under pressure and admitted they were grossly negligent in hiring and retaining an unsafe driver. Exhibiting a complete lack of responsibility, Defendants’ driver had not even bothered to take care of the ticket for running the red light in this case which hurt many people. The Amaro Law Firm attorneys pushed hard and the court heard many motions to compel Defendants to produce the evidence they unsuccessfully tried to hide. The Amaro Law Firm pushed even harder for a trial setting to get our clients justice as quickly as possible.
