Houston Personal Injury Attorneys
Personal injuries impact the lives of not only the person involved, but also their families, friends and work associates. For that reason, the Houston Personal Injury Law Firm of Sutliff & Stout will always take each case personally. For us, a client is first and foremost a person, not a number. Everyone we help is an individual in need of compassion, understanding and the determination of lawyers who believe in fighting every step of the way to see that justice is done.
Our goal is to help bring justice to those who have been harmed by the wrongdoing of others. If you have been involved in a serious personal injury, in Houston or elsewhere, you know the significant impact it has on your life, as well as the life of your family and loved ones. For this reason, you need to make sure that you hire a lawyer that will take your case personally and will fight to make sure that you and your family are treated fairly in the legal system. At Sutliff & Stout we approach each person and family we help with compassion, understanding and the determination and perseverance necessary to make sure that the person is treated fairly and that justice is done.
We take a different approach because our personal injury attorneys understand the hardship and adversity people go through as a result of being injured by the carelessness of another. We take pride in the fact that we are able to get involved in what is often one of the worst situations of someone’s life and help that person and his or her family stand up to the careless person or company, fix what can be fixed and make up for what can not be fixed.
We know that insurance companies and corporations’ primary goal in personal injury litigation is to pay as little as possible on every claim regardless of fault or the harm suffered. That is why we work hard every day to make sure that people with a serious personal injury, car accident, motorcycle/motorbike accidents, 18-wheeler accident or wrongful death case are treated fairly under the law and not forced to accept a less than fair settlement. If the other side refuses to play fair, our Houston personal injury lawyers will take your case to trial so that a jury can decide what is fair compensation for the loss you have suffered.
How We’re Different
We think making a difference in people’s lives starts with having a different approach. We understand the pressures and confusion people can experience when faced with being a victim of a personal injury, and take great pride in the fact that we listen intently to each client’s unique situation and get to know them and their families. From the start, we help navigate our clients through the process and are always there for him or her whenever they need us. We represent individuals and families in a wide array of serious personal injury claims in Houston and throughout Texas and the U.S.
Why We Care
Our upbringing has had a great deal to do with the way we work and how we approach each case. Having grown up in a small West Texas town, our Partners were raised to believe that people should do right by each other. Unfortunately, that is not what a lot of insurance companies and corporations believe. That is why our Houston injury attorneys strive every day to help people with a serious personal injury, car accident, motorcycle accident, 18-wheeler accident or wrongful death case pursue justice and collect what they deserve. While we can‘t take away the harm or injury that has come upon a person or family, we can fight to help make it a little easier. Ultimately, it is our satisfaction in seeing our clients’ lives changed for the better, to right the wrongs done, and bring justice to unfair situations. Call (713) 987-7111 for a free consultation.
Our Client’s Stories
Chris suffered a broken leg when a city vehicle crossed three lanes of traffic and a median and slammed into his car at 65 mph head on. The client went to ten different lawyers, but none of them would take his case because of the significant legal hurdles that exist in suing the city. Sutliff & Stout, however, investigated the claims and aggressively pursued the case. Through significant efforts, Sutliff & Stout was able to obtain a $115,000 settlement for Chris. Net recovery to client was $67,000.
Sutliff & Stout was able to achieve a $105,700 settlement for Daisie regarding a car accident that claimed the life of her adult daughter. The daughter was a passenger in a vehicle that ran a stop sign and collided with another vehicle. Although there was only $25,000 in automobile insurance, Sutliff & Stout was able to settle over four times the amount. Net recovery to client was $58,541.
Sutliff & Stout obtained a $438,750 settlement on behalf of Shavona. The client sustained a lower back injury when she was rear-ended by a commercial truck on a Texas roadway. The damage to her vehicle was less than $5,000, but the impact caused her to sustain a serious neck injury. Through various and significant efforts, Sutliff & Stout was able to convince the insurance company that the minimal impact damage had nothing to do with the extent of Shavona’s injuries. These efforts, as well as others, convinced the insurance company to treat Shavona fairly. Net recovery to client was $248,250.00.
