Odessa Personal Injury Lawyer: Personal Injury Law Firm

The Odessa personal injury lawyers at The Patel Firm have an established track record of successfully securing justified compensation and protecting the legal rights of clients who have suffered personal injuries due to others’ negligence.

Odessa is a major city in Western Texas that, in combination with Midland, has a population of more than a quarter-million people, and the city relies heavily on the oil industry for employment. Odessa is also home to a number of attractions, so people who are working in Odessa as well as people who are merely visiting can easily suffer injuries in a wide variety of possible accidents, and it is important for any person who does sustain injuries in an accident involving the negligence of another party to quickly contact an Odessa personal injury lawyer.

It is important for all people to understand that they usually have the right to seek financial compensation for all of the costs they now bear because of accidents, whether it is medical expenses, lost wages, or even basic pain and suffering. Insurance companies often handle most injury claims on behalf of negligent parties but rarely ever play fair in their evaluations of injury claims, so it becomes critical for all victims to make sure they retain legal counsel for assistance in recovering everything they need and deserve.

Our Areas of Practice

The Patel Firm handles many different kinds of personal injury cases in Odessa. Our firm has a wealth of experience investigating and proving the causes of injuries in these cases, so we will know how to help you recover as much compensation as possible.

Some of the different types of accidents we often handle include:

Car Accidents Car Accidents

Most car accident cases will involve claims against other negligent drivers who usually have insurance companies representing them, and insurers are going to try and argue their clients were not at fault or otherwise minimize their responsibility for wrecks. Read More

Oil Field Injuries Oil Field Injuries

Many oilfield workers do enjoy workers’ compensation coverage but workers’ compensation only provides a fraction of a worker’s regular earnings. Read More

18-Wheeler Accidents 18-Wheeler Accidents

Truck accidents can be more complicated because, whereas another driver is typically clearly at fault for the standard motor vehicle collision, multiple parties may share liability for a truck accident. Read More

Wrongful Death Wrongful Death

Odessa Personal Injury Law Firm Being injured in a car accident as a result of someone else’s negligence puts you in the especially difficult position of facing physical, financial, and emotional challenges, but an experienced Austin personal injury lawyer has the keen legal insight and drive to help.

If you have been injured by the negligence of someone else, it leaves you at an extreme disadvantage. You have medical concerns to address; your earnings may have decreased, and the pain and suffering you experience can make everything else that much more difficult. Obtaining compensation that covers your losses (or damages) in their entirety is critical, but the vulnerable state you find yourself in can make doing so extremely difficult. Having an experienced Odessa personal injury lawyer on your side can mean the difference between obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled and not doing so.

Odessa Chiropractors

Chiropractic care can often be the most effective course of treatment for a person’s injury symptoms. Whereas traditional doctor visits can result in people being prescribed medication to deal with injuries, chiropractors can be more capable of addressing certain underlying issues.

Many accident victims are dealing with soft tissue injuries that are not visible to the naked eye, but such injuries can cause pain in a person’s neck, back, or other body parts. A chiropractor often knows how to help adjust a person’s spine to help treat these injuries.

Chiropractors also know how to remove structural or nerve irritation that could be causing neck or back pain. In addition to supporting long-term healing, chiropractors can know how to help people regain movement and mobility.
