Life is never free of surprises: some good and some not so good. Accidents happen, people are injured and sometimes die; lives are forever changed. When your life is turned upside down by a serious injury or the wrongful death of a family member, and someone else is to blame, it is normal to feel overwhelmed, angry, and hopeless. How will you take care of yourself and your family? How will the bills be paid? Will you ever be able to go back to work? If not, how will you live? These are questions that are foremost in the minds of many car accident victims who come to Briggle & Polan, PLLC, for help. And fortunately, we have answers.Read More

We will work tirelessly to ensure that you receive an amount of money that is fair and will allow you to pick up the pieces of your life following a wrongful death, serious injury, or medical malpractice and move forward.

IN YOUR CASE
It has truly been a blessing working with Parker and Hayden. They were compassionate to my situation. They walked me through every phase of the process and I felt safe in their care and knowledge. The laws and insurance in Texas appear to be centered on behalf of the person who caused the accident, not for innocent bystanders. I cannot thank them enough for everything they did for me. If I ever need anything, I know I can count on them to assist. They will be my recommendation to anyone needing an Attorney.

I don't feel very comfortable with lawyers in general but both, Parker and Hayden made me feel at ease, they were very professional, they explained the process and possibilities when we discussed my case. The outcome for me was absolutely better that I could ever expected. I was very lucky that a friend referred me to them and I would encourage anyone to seek their advice and services.

I went through a hard time financially which led to some bad choices and criminal charges. I wanted to fix everything but had no idea why. Polan worked with me and got my case dismissed. He also worked with me by letting me do a payment plan. I definitely recommend him if you need a reliable, smart, hard working lawyer.

Parker and Hayden were there for me when I needed representation after being injured in a car accident, and I couldn't be happier with the services they provided. They practice law with the up-most integrity, and were available to communicate with me whenever I had a question or need. They were very patient and thorough when explaining the process of settling my car accident claim, and worked with all the medial providers and insurance companies involved to ensure I got the care that I deserved.
