Texas personal injury law firm fights for injured clients
An assertive attorney in Texas seeks full compensation for victims
Accidents can occur on the road, in the workplace, or at home. They often have devastating consequences. When you are injured due to somebody else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement and loss of quality of life. When you choose legal representation from the Allred Law Firm, you get an experienced and aggressive attorney who will fight for your rights in the throughout Texas. I go head-to-head with insurance companies and opposing counsel, working to win the full compensation you deserve for your injuries.
A Texas injury lawyer with a wealth of experience handles many different types of cases
A personal injury claim is successful if you can prove that someone else was responsible for your pain, and that your injury has resulted in costs (also known as damages). In order to build each case, I use a methodical, assertive approach at the Allred Law firm. I gather and analyze evidence, and when necessary, conduct my own investigation.
Some of the common personal injury cases I handle were caused by:
- Vehicle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Oil and Gas Field Accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Harmful prescription drugs
- Birth injuries
- Defective products
- Unsafe property
- Animal attacks
I strive to help deserving victims recover maximum settlements and jury verdicts. To do that, I may consult top experts — such as trauma doctors, chiropractors, pharmacists, forensics engineers, mechanical engineers and accident reconstruction analysts — to substantiate your claim. At trial, expert witnesses can deliver clear, compelling testimony that helps jurors understand the cause and extent of your injuries as well as the impact they have had on your life. And if a family member sustained injury that led to their death, I can represent you or their estate in a wrongful death action.
A hardworking lawyer takes quick action to help injured clients
It is vital you consult an attorney immediately following your injury. This way, an investigation can begin when witnesses’ recollections are fresh and evidence remains available. While you should focus on your recovery, it’s important to protect your legal rights.
Texas law restricts the time you have to file a claim for compensation. Once you seek my help, I will get to work on your case right away. I will do everything possible to reach a fair settlement, without the need for a long court case. However, if litigation is necessary, my aggressive representation will be there every step of way.

Texas Attorney Fights for Victims in Oil and Gas Field Accidents
Texas lawyer has recovered millions of dollars for victims
Every day, oil and gas workers risk their lives to extract the resources that keep America running. These workers face many risks, whether on land or water. They are vulnerable to catastrophic injuries, such as equipment failures, fires, and toxic gas spills. When a serious accident occurs, victims and their families deserve an aggressive lawyer with a deep understanding of the specific dangers associated with energy extraction. We have an established track record in Texas of recovering multi-million dollar settlements for oil and gas workers injured on offshore platforms, as well as victims of accidents that occurred in oil and gas fields. Ed Allred, an experienced litigator who has represented both plaintiffs as well as defendants in cases involving the energy industry, is currently representing the largest independent oil refinery company in the United States. This background allows our firm to provide the best legal representation for oil and gas workers.
Ways that energy field laborers are harmed
Energy extraction workers are at risk of serious injury in many ways, including:
- Collapses — Digging a cellar around a wellhead is a dangerous activity where workers are commonly injured because the excavation caves in. Other types of collapses also cause catastrophic and fatal injuries, including platform failures and falling rigs.
- Explosions and fires — Flammable gasses, improper venting high-pressure wells or unsafe electrical practices, among other hazards, can cause explosions and fires in drilling and extraction sites.
- Equipment failures and strikes — Derricks, wells, refineries and other sites populated by oil and gas workers depend on heavy equipment and vehicles. A defective or poorly maintained machine can cause an accident that injures one or more individuals. The busy activity associated with energy fields also leads to frequent vehicle accidents and injuries caused by dropped equipment.
- Falling from High Locations — Ed Allred, who has represented clients in cases involving falls from high-rise buildings, energy field platforms and other locations, is well versed on how accidents happen and how they can be prevented.
- Toxic Exposure — Cellars, cellars and other enclosed spaces can quickly become filled with dangerous substances such as carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide or other toxic gases. Even a few minutes of exposure could force someone to seek immediate medical treatment. In the worst cases, poisonous vapors could be deadly.
You have rights regardless of your job duties or length of service. Our firm will provide a free consultation to learn more about your options. Your employer may not inform you of the money that you are entitled to receive to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages related to your accident. There is no up-front cost. You will only be paid after we have recovered your financial loss.
The most common injuries suffered by workers in the energy sector
To obtain compensation for an injury in the oil or gas industry, you will need to present medical evidence as well as possible expert testimony. These cases involve medical conditions such as:
- Broken bones and fractured limbs
- Burns caused by thermal and chemical agents
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Illnesses caused by toxic exposure
- Internal injuries
- Muscle, tendon and ligament tears
- Paralysis and other effects of spinal cord damage
Our firm represents the bereaved families and estates of victims who died in accidents in energy fields or offshore rigs.
If you have been injured on an oil field or gasfield, contact a Texas injury attorney for a consultation.

Texas Truck Accident Attorney Pursues Justice for Victims
An experienced lawyer helps people injured in accidents involving 18-wheelers or other large trucks
Large trucks and other commercial vehicles pose a serious risk to others on the road when they’re not being operated properly. The weight and force of a big rig can cause devastating injuries, even at low speeds. That’s why there are special rules for commercial vehicles and why their drivers must obtain a special license. We at Allred Law Firm, in Texas, know how to deal with these cases, so that Texas truck accident survivors can receive the compensation they deserve. Drawing on more than 25 years of experience successfully litigating a wide range of legal matters, attorney Ed Allred is determined to help injured clients secure the payment they need to support themselves and their families.
Firm handles cases stemming from commercial vehicle collisions
A jackknifed truck, rollover accident, T-Bone, or rear-end collision could change the victim’s entire life in an instant. The lawyer you choose can make the difference between receiving fair compensation for your injuries and struggling financially to pay your bills. We use our detailed knowledge concerning the unique aspects of truck accidents to represent CDL holders as well as people struck by 18-wheelers.
Compensation you may be entitled to if you have been injured in a truck accident
Texas law allows victims of truck accidents to collect damages in the following ways:
- Medical bills and Rehabilitation expenses reimbursed
- You can get your wages and any other income that you would have earned but for the injury.
- Damages for pain and suffering – physical and emotional distress
- Accidental scarring and disfigurement can be compensated for.
- You can get compensation for your loss of enjoyment of life due to the crash
The Texas statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years. You should contact our firm as soon as possible instead of waiting. As time goes by, key evidence and witnesses get harder to locate. You don’t have to pay anything upfront because the fee is a percentage of what you get from the defendants after your case.
Parties who may be responsible for a truck accident claim
The majority of passenger cars are driven by the owner or a family member. This means that determining who is at fault for a crash is usually fairly simple. A collision involving a truck could involve many parties. Someone driving for Amazon, UPS, FedEx or another company does not control how their truck is maintained, so they might have no idea that the brakes are worn out or there is a defect in the steering mechanism. Other times, an employer or contracting business may overload a 18-wheeler or force the driver to drive for long hours without rest to meet a deadline. Ed Allred, an attorney who has been handling complex cases for many years, will take legal action against any defendants that may be liable.
