Port Arthur Personal Injury FAQs


How do I know if I need a Port Arthur personal injury attorney?

If you were injured due to the reckless or negligent actions of another party, you might be forced to deal with pain, medical expenses, lost wages, and other miscellaneous costs. These costs can quickly add up and put a severe strain on your life and ability to care for yourself and your family. What some people don’t realize is that you do not have to shoulder this burden and suffer silently. By hiring an attorney who understands this type of law and your case, you can ensure that the people accountable for your suffering fairly compensate you for the damage they caused.


What’s more, many people do not realize that they cannot go through this process alone. The other person’s insurance company will fight to save themselves from financial liability and will actively work to diminish your injury claim. A personal injury lawyer can help protect you from pushy insurance adjusters, insurance representatives, and the other person’s attorneys, who are all seeking to reduce the amount of compensation that you can claim.

How long do I have to file a lawsuit in Port Arthur?

In the state of Port Arthur, most personal injury cases have a statute of limitations of two years. However, it is to your benefit to speak with a personal injury lawyer as early as possible. The sooner you call, the sooner we can begin to help.

That’s our no-fee promise.

I used West & West for my personal injury claim - a slip and fall that involved a trip to the emergency room. Michael West was able to successfully get my medical bills paid and I walked away with money in my pocket. Both Michael and his paralegal were very helpful throughout the whole process.

West and West did an excellent job representing our family's estate settlement during the probate process. They are skilled, up to date, and were patient with us and the beneficiaries and helped us keep everything on track during our extended process. Laura and the others were always amazing with us too.

I enjoyed dealing with a local law firm with strong roots in the community. Probating my Uncle's Will was emotional and personal, but the staff made the process easier than I ever imagined. The process was smooth and easy. The care shown by the staff is knowledgeable and caring.
