The night before trial, Allstate’s lawyers called the Amaro Law Firm to settle this lawsuit arising from a wreck where a woman rear ended our client in north Houston. Both vehicles were moving, but the Defendant tried to blame our client by claiming she cut her off. However, her story did not add up and the Amaro Law Firm was able to punch large holes in her story so that the other side realized their exposure at trial. Although the Amaro Law Firm preferred to try the case, it is ultimately up to the client to accept or reject offers based upon our legal evaluation. Here, the client opted to settled and not take the risk of trial after weighing the pros and cons of the risks in a jury trial.
After nearly two years of litigation with Allstate in a case where a woman ran a red light and broadsided our client, they finally agreed to pay for her medical bills and other damages as result of this wreck. It was not until the deposition of the Defendant that Allstate finally changed their tune and offered fair and just compensation to settle the claims. Although the Defendant ran a red light and paid for the ticket, she refused to admit she was at fault for the wreck since she “tried to stop.”
Truck Wreck – 4 Injured Clients
In Dimmit County, four men were traveling on a rural road when an 18 wheeler decided to ignore a stop sign from a side road from an oil gas field and pull in front of them. The driver was unable to stop in time before hitting the 18 wheeler. The men all suffered neck and back injuries in the wreck. A few of the men suffered herniated discs in their backs which required epidural steroid injections (ESIs). At first, the trucking company denied full responsibility, arguing they had enough time to stop and should have been paying better attention. However, the Amaro Law Firm’s investigation determined the truck driver should never have been on the road in the first place as he had multiple DWI’s and other criminal offenses. A lawsuit was filed and a settlement was reach quickly thereafter. The settlement was enough to cover all of their medical bills and included compensation for pain and suffering and physical impairment they suffered and continue to suffer.
Confidential Settlement 7 Days Before Trial
Truck Wreck – Wrongful Death
Two teenage boys were passengers in their friend’s car on a dark and rainy night in the country outside of Houston. The driver ran a stop sign and subsequently struck an 18 wheeler. The two passengers were tragically were killed in the wreck and their families sought the help of the Amaro Law Firm to find out what happened and how the wreck could have been prevented. In sum, how the wreck happened did not make sense because the truck driver claimed he never saw the car coming at a high rate of speed even though you can see for a long distance. If he did see keep a proper lookout as he was supposed to under the trucking training he had, he would have had time could have hit the brakes and prevent the wreck. The truck driver failed to take any preventative measures before impact. Subsequently, it was discovered that the truck driver was under the influence of alcohol, had multiple health issues that he never disclosed to the medical examiner who provided him his medical qualifications, and had multiple moving violations, wrecks, and health issues that made him a danger to others on the road. In short, he never should have been on the road in the first place. The trucking company endangered the public when they chose to keep letting him drive for them despite the known dangers. Shortly before trial, the trucking company’s insurance company finally conceded liability for the truck company’s decision to keep this dangerous driver and settled the case for the maximum insurance limits available.
Truck Wreck Verdict – Neck and Back Injuries, and PTSD
Confidential Settlement Post-Verdict
After feeling that his previous counsel was not representing his interests to the best of their ability, our client terminated them and found the Amaro Law Firm on Avvo.com after reading the reviews online. Our firm was hired about 30 days before trial and the court would not grant a continuance so that the necessary work that was not completed could take place before trial. While driving his 18 wheeler one early foggy morning in Mississippi, our client was rear-ended by another 18 wheeler driven by a driver for an international trucking company. The impact was violent enough to cause our client’s seatbelt to break loose and his seat to break off the bolts. Our client suffered neck, back, and knee injuries. The truck driver who rear ended him sadly was stuck in the cab of his truck after the impact and burned to death right before our client’s eyes while he helplessly witnessed his tragic death.
The case was tried live with no depositions of the opposing party’s witnesses or experts. After a 2 day trial, our client was vindicated with a verdict in his favor which included his full medical bills and compensation for pain and suffering and impairment. The trucking company threatened an appeal and the case was confidentially settled post-verdict for the full value of the verdict.
Construction Zone Wreck – Verdict
One misty night in Katy, Texas on Kingsland Blvd., Mr. Blevins was traveling to pick up his teenage son to pick up his son to go see a movie. As he was driving down Kingsland, he came upon a slow moving vehicle in the left lane which appeared to be lost, distracted, or slowing down to make a turn. As he looked over his shoulder to make sure he was clear to move over, he suddenly struck a large 26,000 pound Skytrak vehicle moving less than 15 mph on the road. There was no notice by way of lighting or “construction work” signs. Because it was partial frontal impact on the front of his vehicle, the cabin of the suburban was breached on the driver’s side of his vehicle and the vehicle spun around the Skytrak. The Skytrak did not move from the impact. Mr. Blevins suffered severe fractures to his legs which required multiple surgeries, including internal fixation, debridement, and vacuum pumps due to recurring staph infections. Although the doctors advised amputation was necessary, Mr. Blevins kept on fighting and had a bone graft procedure which prevented the requirement of amputation of his left knee down.
At trial, the Defendants Winco Masonry and their operator Alejandro Sanchez refused to admit any responsibility for negligently using the Skytrak off the job site on a dark rainy road without any warnings to the public such as signs, flashers, or escorts. The general contractor, Pepper Lawson Construction, also refused to accept any responsibility for allowing their subcontractors from running amuck on the public roads at night in the rain.
The jury did not buy their unremorseful, unapologetic, and conflicted arguments proffered by their go-to attorney Michael Winchester and returned a verdict in Mr. Blevin’s favor. However, the verdict was not enough as the jury was persuaded to reduce their verdict due to improper closing arguments which were prohibited by the Court in pre-trial arguments. In short, Mr. Winchester argued that Mr. Blevins was intoxicated and speeding before he rear ended their vehicle. Now, the verdict is being appealed so that Mr. Blevins may receive the full justice he is entitled to receive under the letter of the law.
Our client was on the first day of his job as a hand on a well site in east Texas. He was asked to help clean the mud pit. However, no one told him it had caustic acids in the pit before he got in it. The acids burned through his boots and began to burn the skin on his legs causing severe pain and scarring. He was able to crawl out and asked for help. Instead of proper medical attention, the supervisor poured vinegar on his burns which caused even more pain and caused him to lose feeling in his legs. Our client found an attorney who referred his case to our firm since we handle work injuries in the oil and gas business. After years of litigation, the Amaro Law Firm was able to prove that the Defendants failed to properly train and supervise their workers of hazards on the job and also failed to warn of dangers they should have known about.
Our client’s son was a passenger in a day care van when the van was in a severe wreck. Their son suffered major facial injuries which left a permanent scar on his face. As a result, a lawsuit was filed to recover compensation for his injuries. The insurance companies tried to point fingers at each other to avoid liability. However, the lawsuit settled for the maximum amount available under the insurance policies. A guardian ad litem was appointed by the court so that the settlement of his claim could recover interest until he turns 18.
Our client and her companion slipped on a slippery substance on the floor at Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, our client fell violently on the floor and was transported by ambulance to the hospital. Her companion was able to catch herself before falling. Our client was simply walking through the store pushing a cart when she came upon the substance which was not cleaned up to prevent incidents such as the present one. EMS records note the slippery substance on the floor when they came to the scene. They also note she struck her head on the shelves and violently landed on her rear. As a result, she suffered neck and back injuries which results in over $25,000 in medical bills. For over a year, Wal-Mart fought this lawsuit until finally agreeing to a confidential settlement which was fair and just for our client.
Hail Damage Claim Settlement
The Amaro Law Firm represented a doctor and his wife for extensive damages to their home from a hailstorm in Amarillo, Texas. The insurance company offered a meager sum of money to resolve their claim. The home was high valued and had a special tile roof. The entire neighborhood received new roofs, but our client’s insurance company did not want to pay for all of the damages to the roof, drywall, fence, and stucco siding. The Amaro Law Firm quickly filed suit for our clients and mediation was conducted soon thereafter. However, the insurance company still did not want to pay for all of the damages. After more litigation for a couple more months, the lawsuit was settled for several times the amount the insurance company offered these clients before we were hired. The clients were still able to get all of their damages repaired after attorneys’ fees and expenses.
Our client was hit head-on by a wrong way driver in Fort Bend County. Due to her injuries, she had over 17,000.00 in medical bills. Not surprisingly, the insurance company for the wrong way driver did not want to pay them. After hiring the Amaro Law Firm, our client was able to obtain just and fair compensation for her injuries and medical bills.
The Amaro Law Firm tried a car wreck case in Harris County, Texas where a woman denied that she ran a red light before broadsiding our client. The trial was a he said/she said case. Our client suffered neck and back injuries in the wreck. After a 2 day trial, the jury sided without our client finding the Defendant was in a rush to work and ran the red light.
Our client was working as a truck driver one morning when he came upon a vehicle which unexpectedly slammed on his brakes on Highway 46 south of Houston. Our client was able to come to a safe stop without striking the vehicle because he had a safe following distance and was keeping a proper lookout. However, the 18 wheeler behind him did not do the same. As a result, the 18 wheeler rear clipped the back of his trailer and caused tremendous damages to both vehicles.
Our clients had damages to their home as a result of a hailstorm in Amarillo, Texas. The insurance company refused to pay them just and fair compensation to repair their home. The clients found the Amaro Law Firm. We hired our own adjuster to evaluate the damages and then filed suit immediately and brought the insurance company to reason within a few months to pay full and fair compensation for the clients’ damages so they could repair their home. The compensation was enough to repair the home after attorneys’ fees and expenses.
18 Wheeler Wreck – Wrongful Death
Our client’s husband was involved in a tragic 18 wheeler accident in Mississippi when his front tire blew out without any warning. He was operating an 18 wheeler transporting gravel. The blow out caused him to lose control and careen off the road into a tree. The tractor trailer exploded. A good samaritan was able to pull him from the vehicle. However, the burns and injuries were severe. Our client’s husband survived multiple painful surgeries before succumbing to them weeks later. The tires were retrieved and examined which showed they were defective. The case settled for a confidential sum.
Our client safely pulled into an intersection while in the course and scope of his job after stopping at a stop sign. However, another vehicle approaching the stop sign at the intersection did not follow the law and struck our client with great speed. As a result, our client lost time off work due to his neck and back injuries. After months of medical treatment and a lawsuit being filed, the Amaro Law Firm was able to settle his claim for a sum which covered all of his medical bills and expenses as well as compensation for his pain and suffering and impairment.
Our client was traveling on Ranger Hill Road south of Fort Worth on rainy afternoon when she came upon an a18 wheeler which had jackknifed on the road. The 18 wheeler completely blocked the highway. She safely came to a stop behind the 18 wheeler. A few seconds later, another 18 wheeler came around the corner at a speed way too high for a wet and curvy road. This second 18 wheeler never even applied his brakes before slamming into the rear of her vehicle and crushing it between his vehicle and the other 18 wheeler. The Amaro Law Firm was hired within days and immediately took steps to preserve the evidence so the trucks could be inspected. In the inspections, it was determined that the second 18 wheeler driver had drug paraphernalia in his cabin. The data was downloaded off the truck and the speed and brake data showed he never hit his brakes and was exceeding the speed limit. Shortly thereafter, the case settled for a substantial sum which paid for the client’s medical bills for her neck and back injuries, pain and suffering, and the severe mental anguish she suffered as a result of the wreck.
Our two clients were sitting a red light when a SUV suddenly and violently rear ended them. The client suffered neck and back injuries. Although the Defendant admitted he was not paying attention until it was too late, Allstate insurance company still tried to low ball our clients. As almost always with Allstate, a lawsuit had to be filed and litigated almost to trial before they finally caved and paid what they should have paid our clients in the first place. Our clients were able to resolve their lawsuit and get all of their damages paid.
The Amaro Law Firm represented a client in Brazoria County, Texas that was involved in a major auto accident on March 10, 2013 at or near the intersection of State Highway 35 and FM 524. On the date of incident, the traffic signal at the intersection was not operating due to a power outage. Accordingly, TXDOT had placed stop signs in each direction at the intersection. Suddenly and without warning, a vehicle driven by Defendant on State Highway 35 failed to stop at the stop sign and violently collided into our client at a speed greater than 50 mph. The property damages were major and both vehicles were totaled. At the time of incident, it was discovered that Defendant did not possess a valid driver’s license nor did he own the car that he was driving. Rather, the vehicle was owned by another person, who was riding in the passenger seat at the time of incident. Based upon witness statements, it was proven that both of them reeked of the smell of marijuana. Once the police arrived to the scene, the other driver and his passenger decided to add insult to injury by making blatantly false statements to the police. One man first asserted to law enforcement that he was not driving the vehicle, but rather it was the owner of the vehicle. The cops, however, noticed that the driver had a bloody nose and facial injuries which directly matched a bloody face print on the interior windshield on the driver’s side. That is, the driver’s face smashed against the windshield because he was not wearing a seatbelt. The passenger, on the other hand, escaped the collision injury free. Realizing that law enforcement was did not believe story #1, they then claimed that they had the “green light” at the intersection. If they would have fact checked their lies before blurting out the same to the police (or were not under the influence of drugs), then they would have realized that it was impossible for them to have the green light because the intersection had no power. The case settled for every penny available under all of the insurance policies without a lawsuit being filed.
Our client was referred by a family member who we had represented in a trial. This client was in a car wreck in Beaumont, Texas where another vehicle rear ended him at a high rate of speed for no reason. Both vehicles were moving before the collision. The wreck was severe and caused significant injuries to our client when his vehicle was knocked off the highway. The insurance company for the Defendant was State Farm and they refused to accept full responsibility. As a result of the work by the Amaro Law Firm, the client received a settlement which covered all of his damages and injuries.
The trial lawyers at the Amaro Law Firm agreed to a commercial motor vehicle accident settlement that occurred on Memorial Drive in Houston, Texas, for a confidential sum. A construction vehicle known as a “Bobcat” pulled onto Memorial Drive without any spotters, flagmen, or barricades to warn passing motorists. Our client was unable to see the Bobcat until the last second, when the vehicle in front of her quickly changed lanes to avoid colliding with the slow-moving Bobcat. As a result, our client suffered severe injuries. The attorneys at the Amaro Law Firm were able to help her obtain fair compensation in the accident settlement before filing suit.
Settlement $65,000.00. Client netted $37,162.71 after attorneys’ fees and expenses.
Our Houston trial lawyers were able to our client get a settlement for a car accident in Brazoria County that occurred at an intersection without functioning traffic signals. Workers erected temporary stop signs at the intersection. However, a driver disregarded the stop sign and broadsided our client. The accident caused severe injuries to his neck, back, and leg. Our legal team resolved the claims for full insurance policy limits in a quick and efficient manner. The client used the accident settlement funds to pay for his medical bills and received compensation for his injuries with the balance.
Settlement $835,000.00. Client netted $497,906.14 after attorneys’ fees and expenses.
The truck wreck lawyer team at the Amaro Law Firm was able to swiftly resolve a severely injured client’s case prior to a lawsuit being filed. Our client was a backseat passenger in a vehicle being driven by his friend and was asleep in the backseat when his friend pulled into oncoming traffic, thinking a commercial landscaping company truck was going to turn. The truck broadsided our client’s vehicle and severely injured his spine causing him to spend nearly two months in the hospital. Unfortunately, there was minimal insurance available and the landscaping company disputed liability. However, the effective representation of the legal team at the Amaro Law Firm was able to resolve the case for a sum which would provide for resolution of all hospital and insurance liens, continued medical treatment, and a trust for future economic needs.
Settlement Insurance Policy Limits
After more than one year of litigation, the trial lawyers at the Amaro Law Firm were able to resolve a car wreck case and reach an accident settlement for the total insurance policy limits. In this case, the insurance company hired lawyers to deny that insurance coverage should apply to the wreck because the driver was not “named” in the insurance policy. The driver actually fled the scene of the accident and was later found and arrested for DWI. The lawyers were able to demonstrate that the owner of the vehicle negligently entrusted the vehicle insured under his policy to the driver who had previous wrecks where he fled the scene and was arrested for DWI.
The car wreck lawyers at the Amaro Law Firm tried a car wreck case to verdict in Travis County, Texas. Prior to trial, the insurance company’s lawyers had offered only $1,500.00 to settle their client’s claims for back and neck injuries resulting from a rear end accident. Our client was involved in a car wreck on Mopac Expressway in Austin, Texas in November of 2008 after an AC company dropped a piece of AC equipment in the middle of the freeway, causing an emergency situation.
As it clearly was dangerous in the way the AC equipment was being hauled in the back of the truck, another AC company truck was following in case the AC unit fell out of the first truck. The AC company trucks stopped after the unit fell out and our client was able to stop without hitting anyone. However, another driver was not able to stop without hitting our client. The impact was so hard that his vehicle was totaled and pushed into the AC truck.
The other driver settled prior to trial but the AC company refused to make a reasonable offer. The jury awarded our client a verdict in his favor which was over $71,000.00 with court costs and pre-judgment interests. The client netted $23,469.86 from both parties after attorneys’ fees, expenses, and the jury award being split by 50% for each party. The other party settled before trial.
Settlement Property Damages – Pipeline Explosion
The Amaro Law Firm attorneys represented several clients regarding property damages they suffered from a pipeline explosion in their neighborhood. Our legal team and experts worked for several years to prove that the pipeline caused the damages to their homes. The pipeline company denied liability and hired their own legal team to defend the lawsuit. Each of our clients resolved their claims for property damages for fair and reasonable sums.
Verdict– Commercial Dispute
The trial lawyers at the Amaro Law Firm tried a commercial dispute case between two former business partners. One partner incorporated a new business and allegedly stole his other company’s business to the detriment of his “partner.” After a three week trial, the jury agreed and found the defendant partner liable for his wrongful conduct.
Verdict– Civil Dispute
In a small county court trial, the trial lawyers at the Amaro Law Firm represented the tenant in a landlord-tenant dispute. The case against landlords John Beddow and Tina Beddow was tried a to verdict. The jury found in favor of our client and awarded him compensation for the landlord’s wrongful acts, including the landlord’s withholding of money from the tenant’s security deposit to which they were not entitled.
The landlords claimed that they relied upon the representation of their lawyer, Faisal Shah. Mr. Shah testified that he never physically saw the damages and that he did not itemize all of the damages the landlords claimed in his alleged accounting of the deposit, as required by the Texas Property Code.
The jury examined evidence that included photographs of the residence’s poor condition before it was rented, testimony on how the landlords regularly kept other tenants’ deposits, and documents showing the landlords’ lack of response to basic tenant maintenance requests.
The landlords even paid their property manager, James D. Owens of the Houston Heights, Texas, $1,000.00 to testify for them. They also paid another witness to testify that some drapes suffered “heat damages.” On cross examination, Mr. Owens offered unsupportable and impeachable testimony based on his supposed experience as a property manager. Mr. Owens testified about the expensive charges he believed to be reasonable for patching “nail holes” and removing a “satellite dish”, even though he said the property was left in good and clean condition after the walk-through at the end of the lease.
The court entered a judgment on the verdict which also included pre-judgment interest and court costs. The Beddows retaliated against our client for standing up for his rights by filing a counter-suit. Their counter-suit requested over $50,000.00 in attorneys’ fees and a few hundred dollars in “extra” damages over the security deposit.
The jury disagreed with the Beddows and found that our client did not breach the lease agreement. The jury awarded the landlords zero dollars. The Beddows’ lawyer, James Bradley, also represented them in three other lawsuits they filed arising from another real estate deal. Mr. Bradley filed a motion for new trial and a motion to disregard the jury’s findings against his clients. Despite Mr. Bradley’s apparent efforts to save face with his clients in a losing cause, the Court denied their motions after oral argument, after which the Beddows quickly settled for nearly the entire judgment amount. In an ironic twist, the amount of the judgment was higher than the two offers our client made to settle his case before the verdict was rendered.
Settlement – Insurance Dispute
The insurance lawyers at the Amaro Law Firm helped our client recover a substantial sum from a car accident settlement in Laredo, Texas. The client’s worker’s compensation insurance carrier wanted to keep all of the money for medical bills they had paid on her behalf. After months of litigation and briefing, the insurance company acknowledged that they were wrong and accepted a fair a reasonable sum to resolve their lien for worker’s compensation benefits.
Settlement – Auto Accident
The Amaro Law Firm trial lawyers achieved a substantial car accident settlement in which two of our clients were clipped by another car that failed to yield the right away and pulled in front of them. The clients’ vehicle rolled five times before coming to a rest. The other driver claimed he had the right of way. Our legal team proved him wrong before filing a lawsuit. The case settled for an appreciable amount, which enabled our clients to pay all of their medical bills and hospital bills, as well as fair compensation for their pain and suffering.
Settlement – Work Injury – Chemical Exposure
The Amaro Law Firm represented a group of plant workers in New Mexico that were exposed to potassium hydroxide, also known as caustic potash, a chemical used in removing organic acids and sulfur compounds in petroleum refineries. The plant workers were exposed to the dangerous chemical, causing them to seek immediate hospital care. The refinery blamed another contractor for their injuries, but the Amaro Law Firm trial lawyers proved that negligence on the part of the refinery caused their exposure. The cases each settled for a considerable and confidential sum.
Settlement Policy Limits – Pedestrian Accident
The trial lawyers at the Amaro Law Firm represented a pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle in Downtown Houston. The driver claimed she was blinded by the sun and thought the light was green. Our client suffered severe injuries to her neck, back, and legs. After months of medical treatment, the lawyers resolved her claim for the full insurance policy limits. Although the insurance company had only offered a low ball sum at first, the client had all of the hospital and medical bills covered through the settlement and received compensation for her pain and suffering.
Substantial Confidential Settlement – 18 Wheeler Accident – Wrongful Death.
This case was referred to the truck wreck attorneys at the Amaro Law Firm from a law firm in Sugar Land, Texas. In a very unfortunate 18 wheeler accident, our client was a front seat passenger in a vehicle which was broadsided by an 18 wheeler on Highway 59 outside of Rosenberg, Texas. The attorneys working on the case were able to quickly investigate the facts, interview witnesses, thoroughly research the truck driver and trucking company’s safety and driving histories, and secure other relevant evidence before it was destroyed. Fortunately, the opposing counsel and the trucking company wanted to avoid litigation and a lengthy lawsuit so they opted for an early mediation at which time they offered a substantial settlement subject to strict confidentiality of the terms and details of the settlement.
Confidential Settlement – Work Injury Explosion.
Our client was a hard working family man from the East side of Houston referred to our firm from another Houston law firm.

The explosion blew him back several feet and the flames burned through his gloves and face protection. He suffered severe burns to his hands and to his face which required months of medical treatment. Fortunately, the client healed well from his burn injuries due to following the medical treatment plan. After several depositions and obtaining substantial documents from the Defendant in the lawsuit, the parties agreed to a mediation and were able to amicably resolve the case for fair and reasonable compensation to our client.
BP Deepwater oil spill – Voo Settlements
The attorneys on the oil spill claim department at the Amaro Law Firm were able to resolve a $140,400.00 claim in the Vessel of Opportunity (“Voo”) settlement program for one client. The attorneys’ fees are subject to a cap of 25% in the Deepwater Horizon settlement, so the remaining net sum was recovered by our client with very little legal expenses. Our client netted $91,247.96 after attorneys’ fees and expenses were deducted from the grossrecovery.

The client was working for a subcontractor at a refinery near Houston. The client did not have worker’s compensation to cover his damages and was unable to work for the employer after his injury. The defendant tried to low-ball our client with a quick settlement before he hired a work injury lawyer by blaming him for his injury.

Our client suffered neck and back injuries which required substantial medical treatment over a long period of time.

In the car wreck, our client was an innocent front seat passenger in a small vehicle parked at a red light when the Defendants’ large work van blew through a red light at a high rate of speed and caused a multi-vehicle wreck.

In depositions, the Defendants’ corporate representatives folded under pressure and admitted they were grossly negligent in hiring and retaining an unsafe driver. Exhibiting a complete lack of responsibility, Defendants’ driver had not even bothered to take care of the ticket for running the red light in this case which hurt many people. The Amaro Law Firm attorneys pushed hard and the court heard many motions to compel Defendants to produce the evidence they unsuccessfully tried to hide.

On the eve of trial in a case where a client suffered multiple disc bulges in an car wreck in Sugarland, the Amaro Law Firm car wreck attorneys recovered nearly twice the amount of policy limits from a Defendant’s insurance company. Prior to settlement, the insurance company offered less than half the available policy limits which barely covered the outstanding medical bills. The insurance company hired two law firms before finally offering fair compensation to settle the lawsuit.
The Amaro Law Firm represent a young man who was a passenger in his friend’s vehicle in Nueces County which rolled over off the side of a freeway. The driver of the vehicle in which our client was a passenger had swerved the vehicle to prevent being hit by another “John Doe” vehicle and rolled over in a ditch. Although this case was an accident involving friends, the medical bills from emergency room and resulting medical car necessary forced our client to seek legal representation against his own friend’s insurance company because his insurance company attempted to place blame on the “John Doe” driver and would not pay the medical bills. The legal representation of the Amaro Law Firm recognized the delicate situation and was able to conclude this lawsuit and settle for the available policy limits without jeopardizing the friendship of its client with the Defendant.
The Amaro Law Firm settled a case for a significant sum for a family of 3 which were hurt in a car wreck where the Defendant’s vehicle rear ended them at a red light.

The current laws require that skylights be able to withhold certain weights and also have barriers to prevent people from stepping on them.
A young police officer was in a major auto collision in Richmond, Texas which was recorded on the police officer’s dash cam. The Defendant in this case pulled out in front of the police officer as he was driving 50-55 mph, causing the police officer to wreck in a ditch.

“As the owner of an accounting consulting services business, I have had the pleasure of working with the Amaro Firm for almost three years on Deepwater Horizon oil spill settlement claims litigation. Our work together on the Deepwater Horizon spill claims process involves navigating an extensive and complex settlement agreement and representing victims of the Spill against numerous parties whom all have a vested interest in ensuring that those victims never receive economic remuneration. Throughout this arduous process, the Amaro Firm’s staff has consistently demonstrated themselves to be highly skilled, insightful, meticulous, and unrelenting in their pursuit of justice for their clients. David Miller is a model example of the exceptional attorneys working at the Amaro Firm. While collaborating directly with Mr. Miller for the past eighteen months on Deepwater Horizon Settlement claims, I have witnessed first-hand his excellent analytical skills and ability to quickly formulate an effective strategy for each individual client. Additionally, Mr. Miller’s keen eye for detail and exceptional writing skills make him an invaluable asset in virtually any legal setting. Perhaps most importantly, Mr. Miller is easily accessible at all times and is highly motivated to help each and every one of his clients and vendors succeed in any way he can. All of the aforementioned attributes are also exemplified by James Amaro, the Managing Partner of the firm. Mr. Amaro is a leader in his field and is an impeccable example of the intellect and unwavering persistence required of all attorneys involved in guiding clients through complex legal disputes. Due to the high degree of competence, skill, and overall professionalism exhibited by the Amaro Firm I would highly recommend their services to anyone in need of expert counsel with their BP Economic or Medical claims, general insurance disputes or personal injury lawsuits, especially trucking accident litigation.

“Hello, my name is Matthew Scott. I live in Florida and after the BP oil spill occurred, the company I work for was asked to send representatives to aid in the security of the areas where the workers cleaning the oil spill were and their housing areas. (Tent Cities). I was there for five weeks working 12 hours on and 12 hours off. Even with all the precautions that were taken to prevent anything from happening I did feel it necessary to file a lawsuit against BP. The Amaro Law Firm handled my case and it was completed to my satisfaction. Without the help of paralegal Candace McCullough, I feel it would have been much harder for me. She is truly a great asset to the law firm. Thanks again Candace McCullough for all you did for me. ”Cameron Merriman for Matthew Scott

“ The Amaro Law Firm is simply the best there is! I contacted them trying to find someone to handle my serious head-on motor vehicle accident where the defendant rammed into me at 35-40 mph. He was ticketed for the accident and I was left in my car, deployed airbag in my lap, with serious injuries that I still suffer from almost 4 years later with future joint replacement surgery yet to come. Felipe was my first contact (aside from the receptionist who was very friendly and professional) and he spent almost an hour patiently listening to me explain my case and the accident and each of my injuries. The next day, I met with Wendy Zagala, firm paralegal, who spent 3 hours (!) before the firm had even taken me on as a client, listening to every minute part of my story, from the horror of watching the defendant barrel into me to the terror of being back-boarded on a stretcher to the hospital to the frustration and disgust brought on in dealing with the defendant's insurance company's attorney and his lies and game playing. Tears, anger, frustration, and an ever-growing sense of hopelessness ... until I got to the Amaro Law Firm. Mr. Amaro's prior experience as a insurance company defense attorney assured me that he would know exactly how to handle my case. His vast experience, his integrity, his professionalism, his dedication, his support and compassion, his doggedness, his intelligence ... what more can one ask for in seeking a personal injury attorney? Nothing! ”Lori Khan
