About
Terry Bryant

Attorney and Former Judge Terry Bryant has known since he was young that he wanted to be a lawyer. Mr. Bryant is a native of Texas and completed his undergraduate degree at Texas A&M University. He then went to Houston and graduated with his Juris Doctorate from South Texas College of Law in 1977. A few years later in 1985, he opened his own firm and had one goal in mind: help those who have been seriously injured. Mr. Bryant said, “Being able to help injured persons and those who have lost loved ones through our legal system is a dream come true.” Since 1985 he has helped victims in all types of cases such as car and truck crashes, defective products, medical malpractice, spinal & brain injuries, falls, explosions, and a wide array of other serious injuries.

Mr. Bryant is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law, which means his experience and knowledge of the law have been recognized by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. This sets Mr. Bryant apart from many other injury attorneys in the state. He was also a Municipal Judge in Spring Valley Village, Texas for 22 years and that experience has helped him gain great insight into the Texas court system. Mr. Bryant talked about his days as a judge and said, “During the time I was a judge I handled over 100,000 cases. On the cases that were tried, my view from the bench gave me a real insight into the thought processes of jurors.” He has never second-guessed his decision to specialize in personal injury, and it allows him to have absolute focus in the cases that he handles.

What Is a Houston Personal Injury Attorney?

As you go about your daily routine, it’s likely you will come across scenarios where you could suffer an injury. Maybe you are grocery shopping, dining at your favorite restaurant, or driving in your car. A Houston personal injury attorney represents those who have been injured because of another party’s carelessness, negligence, or willful disregard of others. These wrongful acts are more formally referred to as torts. When you suffer harm as a result of another party, you shouldn’t have to shoulder the financial burden which often accompanies an injury because of medical expenses and lost wages. A licensed personal injury attorney in Houston can help you seek the compensation you deserve in civil court. Although personal injury attorneys deal with tort law, they often specialize in one or more areas. The following list is not exhaustive but includes three broad types of cases Houston personal injury lawyers handle on a day-to-day basis.

Traffic Accident Injury Cases

Each year, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates more than six million traffic collisions are reported to law enforcement, including more than 35,000 fatal crashes, and about 2.5 million injuries. A skilled Houston accident attorney can help investigate your accident and build a strong case against the defense to hold at-fault drivers accountable. Traffic accidents can include truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. When high speeds are involved, victims who are lucky enough to live through an accident, potentially face lifelong complications.

Premises Liability Injury Cases

In all 50 U.S. states, property owners have the legal obligation to maintain a safe environment for those who visit their business and home. Although exact laws vary from state to state, when a property owner fails to uphold his legal obligation and someone suffers an injury, courts often find the owner liable for damages in civil court. Premises liability accidents include a wide variety of accidents based on location and the type of injury. Victims might get injured at a swimming pool, a theme park, on an elevator, at a shopping mall, and many other locations. The most common type of premises liability accident is a slip-and-fall injury or a trip-and-fall injury. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries, besides traffic accidents, is unintentional falls.

Product Liability Injury Cases

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) records and maintains millions of complaints of injuries caused by defective products each year. A defective product might have a manufacturing defect, a design defect, or a marketing defect, which occurs when companies don’t warn consumers of dangerous products or provide proper instructions. When a known or unknown defect causes injury to a consumer, courts can hold any party in the product’s chain of distribution liable for damages. The CPSC is concerned with all types of household items, sports equipment, toxic and flammable chemicals, toys, and much more, but they do not serve as a watchdog for the automotive industry or the pharmaceutical. Defective airbags and defective tires have been a common cause of injury or death, as well as dangerous drugs.
