We Help Victims of Accidents

Have you been injured in a car accident or slip and fall accident?

Fjeld has been named one of Houston’s Top Lawyers for personal injury. He and his firm are committed to seeking justice for those injured through no fault of their own. These cases can have a devastating impact on individuals and their families. Pain and suffering, a long recovery process, and sometimes permanent disability can tragically transform someone’s life.

Jerome O. Fjeld, PLLC: Practice Areas

Attorney Jerome O. Fjeld and his associates provide supportive counsel and honest advocacy. Over the years, we’ve been able to hone our skill sets while practicing in certain areas of personal injury law. We’ve been able to help hundreds of clients win the fair compensation they deserve. We are a small legal firm, but we have been able to achieve big results. One of our strengths is that we can provide our clients with customized attention.

Car Accidents

Car accidents are unpredictable, frightening, and, sometimes, physically and mentally injurious. Jerome O. Fjeld, PLLC, has more than a decade of experience helping victims of motor vehicle accidents. People who are injured in car accidents through the fault of another turn to our firm because it has a reputation for providing individualized solutions tailored to each client’s specific case.

The National Transportation Safety Board has reported on an increase in “drug-impaired drivers” in the country. Texas is not immune from the dangers that individuals who drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol pose to our roadways. In the Houston area, driving distracted (i.e. using a cellphone to talk or text) has also led to car accidents that resulted in serious, even fatal, injuries. Drivers who fail to operate their vehicles safely and adhere to the rules of the road may be held accountable for their negligence or blatant wrong-doing.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident that was caused by another driver, we can help. We’ll speak with insurance companies and the at-fault party’s lawyers on your behalf. We’ll provide investigative services to ensure that we have everything possible to support your claim. We have years of experience negotiating lucrative settlements for car accident victims. We also have a track record of success in the courtroom. If you choose to let our firm represent you, we promise to do everything in our power to fight for your right for compensation.

Truck Accidents

A truck accident can be a catastrophic event. As a major U.S. city with miles and miles of highway, ramps, and roads, Houston is traversed by huge 18-wheelers from all over the country. While commercial truck drivers are trained to exercise extreme care when operating their heavy vehicles, they do sometimes make mistakes as statistics show. Jerome O. Fjeld, PLLC, has represented many truck accident victims in and around Houston. We’ve seen truck accidents that were caused by:

  • Tailgating
  • Illegal lane changes
  • Failing to yield right of way
  • Speeding
  • Aggressive driving
  • Driving drowsy
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs

 

Many people who have been involved in a truck collision are left with permanent disabilities or disfigurement. They often require long-term medical care that involves surgeries, specialist care, rehabilitation, medications, and tests. Medical bills and lost work wages can quickly dissipate savings. We believe that victims deserve to be fairly compensated for all that they’ve endured through the fault of another; that’s why we are drawn to the field of personal injury law where we can help those who need our help.

Motorcycle Accidents

Texas routinely makes lists of states with the most fatal motorcycle accidents. One of the reasons the state has a high rate of motorcycle collisions: it has issued licenses to more than 386,900 motorcyclists. However, many of the crashes are caused because other drivers on the roads make errors—serious errors that lead to devasting collisions. Jerome O. Fjeld, PLLC, has represented many motorcycle accident victims. We have experience negotiating and litigating in pursuit of our client’ rights. Let us represent you. We can discuss your case during our free initial consultation. We’ll provide you with our honest opinion of your case’s merits and challenges. If you proceed, we’ll represent you to the best of our abilities.

Bicycle Accidents

Houston’s sunny weather attracts many bicyclists to its streets. Yet, drivers of motor vehicles sometimes forget that bicyclists are entitled to share the streets too and may fail to drive safely in their presence. When a collision occurs, it’s often the bicyclist who suffers. Our firm can meet with you to discuss the particulars of your case. We’ll provide you with our knowledge-based opinion so that you can decide how to proceed.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can occur when a property owner or their agents (i.e. property manager) fail in their responsibility to maintain a safe environment for patrons or visitors. Failing to repair a step, for instance, can result in a slip and fall accident. If you suspect that your injuries are due to a property owner’s negligence, you can rely on our firm to carefully assess your claim and provide you with diligent representation if you choose to pursue your case.

Wrongful Death

If you have lost a loved one because of someone else’s carelessness, recklessness, or wrong-doing, you may pursue a wrongful death suit. In Texas, the deceased’s spouse, children, and parents can bring a suit. These parties can file together or on their own. However, an award for compensation is for each of these parties if they exist. If someone you’ve loved has lost their life because of the carelessness of another, you may be eligible for compensation. Contact us for a free initial consultation.

Dog Bites

Each year, as many as 4.5 million dog bites take place. While many dogs make excellent pets, others may act in an aggressive manner. If you’ve been bitten by someone else’s dog, you may be eligible for damages. Dog bites can cause serious injuries that require months of recovery. If you need a dog bite attorney in Houston, turn to Jerome O. Fjeld, PLLC, for help.

Compensation

Victims of injuries that are caused by someone else have the right to seek damages. Plaintiffs can file a suit for economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are the medical expenses and lost work wages that are associated with the injuries. These costs can also include future damages. Many people require long-term or on-going medical care. They may be unable to attend work or even work any longer in their chosen career. Economic damages can also include property damage. Non-economic damages refer to physical and mental pain and suffering.

If you need a personal injury attorney in Houston, contact Jerome O. Fjeld, PLLC. We will not charge you any fees unless we are able to achieve a settlement or win compensation at trial. Contact us to schedule a free initial consultation so we can discuss your case.
