Sometimes people are injured through no fault of their own. This can lead to serious medical problems, unexpected medical bills, and property that needs to be replaced or repaired.

When you’ve been seriously injured, our Texas personal injury lawyer has the compassion, skill and experience you need to fight for the compensation you deserve.

In 2013, of all states in the U.S., Texas had the highest number of traffic fatalities, and more than 40 percent of them involved drivers who had a blood alcohol level higher than .08 percent.

Sadly, for the families of people killed by drunk drivers, there is little that can be done to ease their emotional pain. But when a person is injured or killed in Texas due to the negligence of another, the victim or victim’s family may be able to seek compensation, with the help of a personal injury attorney.

If you think you may have a case, call a Texas personal injury lawyer at the Evans & Herlihy Law Firm at (512) 732-2727, for a free consultation.


These are just a few of our clients who have benefited from our personal injury law expertise:

  • A Dallas County man, struck by an out-of-control car. His severe injuries resulted in months of missed work and led to a pulmonary embolism. We were able to recover compensation for his injuries, lost wages, and hospital care for his embolism recovery.
  • A Collin County boy, attacked by a dog while playing in his front yard. We secured enough compensation that the boy’s parents were able to put aside funds for his future educational needs.
  • A Tarrant County man, struck by a drunk driver. We won the maximum amount of all available liability insurance payout for our client, and we found extra health and disability coverage to cover his medical costs.

We work hard to help our clients move forward with their lives. For example, we often call upon our medical provider contacts in order to get clients the care they need to recover from an injury – quickly.


Personal injury lawsuits require in-depth knowledge of insurance laws in order to secure the maximum compensation for victims. Our personal injury attorneys in Texas know how to explore every possible avenue when seeking damages for our clients.

We’ve handled cases that cross state lines – when the victims resided in another state and were injured in Texas, or a Texas resident was injured when outside the state.

Those types of cases involve a level of complexity beyond the scope of many law firms. But the Evans & Herlihy Law Firm understands how Austin and state laws, federal law, and insurance practices affect victim compensation.

Carelessness Kills on Austin’s Roads

According to the City of Austin 2012 Traffic Fatality Report, Austin had 78 traffic fatalities in 2012 – that’s a 42 percent increase from 2011. Alcohol and drug impairment was a contributing factor in more than half of those fatalities, and excessive speed contributed to 32 percent of these crashes. While Austin officials are doing what they can to make roadways and intersections safer, carelessness and negligence will continue to be a threat to motorists, cyclists and pedestrians in our city and state. In other settings – from playgrounds to factory floors – carelessness poses a threat, too. If you believe you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, call us today.


Attorney Chip Evans

Most Texas personal injury cases we’ve handled have been resolved before trial, but when a case does go to trial, we’re able to use our extensive litigation experience to secure favorable compensation for our clients. We may bring in expert witnesses or use accident reconstruction techniques to illustrate your case for the court. We can’t guarantee that we can win your case, but we can guarantee that we’ll use all the resources we have to pursue your claim.

Even if you think you may share part of the blame in a Texas personal injury case, you may still be entitled to compensation, under our state’s shared-fault rules. A statute of limitations does apply to personal injury cases in Texas, so if you think you may have a case, don’t delay – call us today at (512) 732-2727.
