Personal Injury


If you or a loved one have been seriously injured as a result of the negligence of another person or a company, then you already know the challenges and difficulties that result from those incidents.

Everything is more difficult when you are in pain. You may feel overwhelmed and confused about the claim process. You may feel angry about the lack of concern and support from the liability insurance company.

You have probably already realized the insurance company simply doesn't care about your injuries. Their goal is to completely deny your claim if possible, or otherwise to minimize your claim. Make no mistake, they want to close out the claim file as quickly as possible--maybe even before you realize the full extent of your injuries--and for the least amount of money possible.

Insurance companies don't care about your pain and suffering or about your out-of-pocket costs and other money damages. Your claim is simply a business deal to them--just dollars and cents. They often try to settle claims very quickly before the injured person has a reasonable opportunity to hire a lawyer.

The Texas personal injury lawyers at the Law Office of Derek R. Van Gilder represent victims in personal injury cases throughout the state of Texas. Injury cases can be difficult and complicated. You deserve an aggressive and experienced personal injury attorney who will fight for your right to justice and fair compensation.

After reviewing the facts of your case, including the nature and extent of your injuries, we will be able to place an estimated value on your case for settlement purposes. Of course, every case is different and we cannot guarantee anyone a particular outcome.

The vast majority of injury cases settle before trial. But if your case cannot be settled, we will be prepared to take your case to trial if necessary. Our firm regularly tries cases of all types. We regularly accept injury cases from vehicle crashes such as car wrecks, trucking accidents, and motorcycle accidents.
