Personal injuries suffered due to someone else’s negligence can have a major impact on not only your health but on all other areas of your life. Personal injuries, such as those that occur in an accident, affect the life and future of everyone involved. They cause physical and mental pain and suffering, which can take a long time to recover from. Personal injuries caused by negligence may entitle the injured party to claim damages for medical bills, therapy costs, lost wages, permanent disability, and pain and suffering.
Personal injury lawsuits are not like criminal cases where you need to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that someone is guilty of wrongdoing. Proving negligence or carelessness on someone else’s part is critical. Let the Pasadena personal injury lawyers at Schechter, Shaffer & Harris, LLP provide you with the legal representation and aggressive advocacy that you deserve.
At Schechter, Shaffer & Harris, LLP we help accident injury victims pursue justice and compensation for their pain and suffering. Our goal is to achieve maximum recovery on your behalf during each step of the process: from settlement negotiation to case presentation in front of a judge or jury. Every decision made by our personal injury attorneys is based on what is best for our clients. We are committed to holding negligent parties accountable for their actions while also protecting the rights of accident injury victims throughout Texas, including Pasadena, La Porte, Deer Park, and Galena Park.
The Pasadena personal injury lawyers at our law firm have been representing clients who have suffered a wide range of injuries including those that involve defective products, auto accidents, premises liability, and medical malpractice. Our goal is to help you recover the compensation you need and deserve for the harm brought to you as a result of someone else’s carelessness. If you have been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, call our team today for your free consultation.
Our personal injury law firm has extensive experience representing clients in personal injury cases. We are able to help victims obtain the justice and compensation they deserve by advocating for their rights under Texas law. Our firm represents accident injury victims with a variety of cases. These are some of the most common types:
Did you know that there is a recall on your child’s car seat? Has your medication caused your health issues? Has your hair straightener caused burns on several occasions? You may be entitled to financial compensation if you or someone you love has been injured due to the use of a defective product. The successful resolution of our client’s claims often requires us to conduct an investigation into the cause of the defect and the injuries. We help our clients obtain the information needed to bring a claim for defective products against those responsible.
An auto accident can be a scary experience in Texas. While you may be frantic if you have been in a serious accident, you need to keep your wits about you and call 911 immediately. Our attorneys can help protect your rights after an auto accident from the insurance company’s investigation into the cause of the accident to negotiating a fair settlement for any injuries that were not your fault or to litigating on behalf of an injured victim when necessary.
Has a defective sidewalk caused you harm? Has someone else’s dangerous swimming pool caused injury to a loved one? When a property owner fails to ensure his/her premises are safe for use by others, they put their visitors at risk of suffering serious personal injuries. In such cases, our firm seeks the compensation you need and deserve to recover from your injuries.
Injuries due to medical malpractice can have a devastating impact on a person’s life. When a doctor or nurse fails to provide appropriate care, the consequences can be life-threatening, catastrophic, or even fatal. Patients need someone by their side who understands how important it is for them to get the financial compensation they deserve after suffering due to medical malpractice. Our Pasadena personal injury lawyers work with experts in relevant fields of medicine including cardiology, neurology, general surgery, and more who are able to explain what went wrong during treatment and how it has impacted our clients’ lives.
Our personal injury law firm is proud to serve accident injury victims throughout Pasadena and La Porte. We are dedicated to protecting the rights of our clients by advocating on their behalf. We are prepared to litigate on your behalf if necessary, but would rather work with insurance companies fairly and efficiently to ensure you receive just compensation for your injuries as quickly as possible without having to go through litigation first.

There is no set amount of financial compensation in Pasadena that one can receive in a personal injury case. Every situation is different. For example, if you are dealing with a more serious injury where someone has broken bones or even died, the amount received may be higher than if the damage done was more moderate. Your Pasadena personal injury lawyer will review all of the factors involved in your case to get an idea of what you should expect to receive based on how many damages were affected either physically or emotionally. Most commonly, we can help you recover compensation for:
Medical expenses – these expenses can include an ambulance ride, prescription medications (both over the counter and through a pharmacy) as well as prescriptions that your doctor may prescribe to treat injuries sustained in an accident, surgeries, rehab, doctor visits, and more.
Lost wages – This category includes missed work due to either physical limitations you are facing or even because of attending court proceedings for which you needed to be present. It also can include future lost wages if someone is disabled to the point where they will not be able to return to their job. If someone dies, this would include financial compensation for the lost earning capacity of that person.
Pain & suffering – This category is pretty self-explanatory but encompasses pain caused by the injury, both short-term and long-term as well as emotional stress placed on someone who suffers loss due to the actions of another.
