Surgery After A Car Accident
Car accident lawyers committed to helping you recover maximum compensation
If you’ve been injured in a Houston car accident, you may need surgery. That’s never something anyone wants to hear, and it’s something that can affect you physically, emotionally, and financially. If your injuries were caused by a negligent driver, the car accident lawyers at Smith & Hassler fight for the compensation you deserve so you can get the medical treatment you need.
Having to undergo surgery is stressful and there is always the risk of complications. After surgery, you still face a long road to recovery. You may need to stay in the hospital for some time, receive follow-up treatment. You many also need medication, physical therapy, and occupational therapy.
If you were hurt in a car accident, you may need surgery:
- Back, neck, or knee surgery
- Spinal fusion surgery
- Rotator cuff or other shoulder surgery
- Internal organ surgery
- Brain surgery
- Plastic surgery
Recovery from surgery is often a lengthy process that may take weeks, months or even longer. In some cases, you may be left with a permanent disability. While you are recovering, you won’t be able to work, meaning you may face a loss of income. It can be a tough time in your life, and you may have difficulty getting by financially.
Attorneys who take your case seriously from the start
Recovering financial compensation after a car accident can be complicated. Negligent drivers often deny doing anything wrong and won’t accept responsibility. Insurance companies are supposed to help, but they are mostly interested in protecting their bottom line.
There are many tactics insurance companies will use to try to pay you less after your surgery. They may question the seriousness of your injuries or even if surgery was necessary. They may argue your injuries were pre-existing. Or they may make a lowball settlement offer that falls far short of covering your medical expenses.
That’s why you need an experienced car accident lawyer who will fight for your rights. Our firm has been helping the injured in Houston since 1989.

They know that we are always prepared and are committed to getting the best results. It’s one reason why we are often able to negotiate a settlement that meets your needs.
We are not interested in making quick deals that help the insurance companies save money. Any resolution of your case must include compensation for all the damages you have suffered. This includes compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to your injuries, your surgery, and your recovery.
Many people wonder if they can afford legal representation. If we represent you, there are no upfront fees or expenses. In fact, you owe us nothing unless we cover financial compensation for you. Our fee comes out of the compensation we recover, whether that’s through a settlement or a jury verdict. If you don’t get compensation, we don’t get paid.

"I was an unfortunate pedestrian involved in a motor vehicle accident which culminated in me having to have spinal surgery. I reached out to smith and Hassler and was assigned to attorney Daragh Carter. I cannot speak highly enough of his care and attention throughout this law suit, he kept me informed each step of the way making it as easy as he could during this stressful time. The suit was successfully settled within 2 years. I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of an accident claims attorney." - Pam
