In the Midland-Odessa area in July 2018, two people were killed in a car accident involving a semi-truck on eastbound I-20.

Severe or Permanent Injuries

The intensity of the injuries plays a vital role in a compensation case. Generally, the seriousness of the injuries is determined by the time it takes for recovery, medical bills, and the type of injury.

The future cost of medical bills is also taken into consideration in a compensation claim. In some cases, injuries are permanent or take months for the body to heal. Long-term injuries could increase a compensation claim.

“I was really glad I hired Robert White. I had a severe back injury and the workers’ compensation carrier continued to deny my surgery. Mr. White made sure I had my surgery and that the insurance company paid for it. I did not have to wait until the lawsuit was finalized to have my surgery. I am so pleased with his work and his staff was very pleasant and helpful throughout the entire process. I was so pleased with his work, that I hired him on another accident. He did an excellent job on the second accident too.” – Malcolm Owens
