I was blessed to find Carlson Law Firm in Killeen and had the pleasure to have Caitlyn Tellez and Jamesha Taylor work on my case. They were very professional and kept me informed on any updates by phone and via email. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family 100%. Thank you for all your help! 😊

My Family and I are so grateful for The Carlson Law Firm. Ms. Kyra Leal and Ms. Laura Coates welcomed my whole family and support team in. They were patient, understanding, compassionate, and up front with the truth. My family didn't know anything about the terminology of the legal/judicial system, and they were an extremely great help with breaking things down so we can understand it. They searched out the facts and people. They were fully vested in the best interests of my son's case/life. We wouldn't think twice about them representing anyone we love again and again! We will choose The Carlson Law Firm for all my future legal needs. We Are Forever Thankful To You!

After an car accident we spoke with Mrs. Coe. She was very helpful and guided us as needed. After she left our case went to Gerry and Blake. We couldn't have been happier. Both are excellent Lawyers and did an outstanding job. I can only recommend to see them if you in need. Keep up the great work

I had the pleasure of working with Caitlyn Tellez and Gerry Avila (Killeen Office) with my auto accident where I had some medical issues. Gerry set up a time for all of us to meet at the firm, I explained what happened in the auto accident and showed pictures and explained my medical issues and concerns. They had no problem taking on my case and explained to me how the legal process worked in these types of cases. I have never been in an accident and much less needed a lawyer for anything. I was very please how fast I was able to get in to see some medical doctors and to start receiving some treatment. Caitlyn and Gerry told me up front my job was to make all my medical appointments and not to miss them and not to worry about anything else and their job was to fight for my medical treatment and compensation. And that is exactly what they did. Yes, there was several months that went by with no contact and that was to be expected because I was receiving medical care. Once the medical treatment was complete then they would go fight for compensation. Gerry would call when he needed to update me on my case and when I had a question I would call or email him, and he would get back with me in a timely manner.I let the process work just as it was explained to me in the beginning by Caitlyn and Gerry. I am very thankful I had those two working for me and on my side. If I ever need a lawyer again I will definitely call The Carlson Law Firm.
Doing family law business with this firm has been quick, thorough and very professional.

Thank you so much for making my divorce stress free! We were able to come to an agreement that would make the divorce uncontested, but with property and children involved I wanted to hire an attorney to make sure everything was done correctly. Steven Walden (attorney) and Lupe Martinez (paralegal) were amazing. They were so kind, helpful, and efficient. My retainer agreement was very transparent about fees and so I knew what to expect ahead of time. The past year has been very traumatic for me, but I knew that by hiring the Carlson Law Firm to handle my divorce I was in great hands and could relax throughout the process. Thank you so much 🙏

My case resolution with Carlson has been nothing short of exemplary. Their care for my situation was evident, and even though my case was not a complex one, the level of communication, accurate information, and timely response to inquiry made me feel as though I was their only client. From start to finish, I felt completely comfortable knowing that my best interests were in their highly capable hands. The Carlson Law Firm comes highly recommended, the only downside is that Google won't permit ratings higher than 5 stars.

My husband and I worked with Cassandra on my husband's custody case for his daughter. We live out of state and we feel Cassandra went out of her way to keep us Informed throughout the process. Not only did Cassandra help us win our case but she made sure that we understood everything that was happening and what to expect during the process but, never gave our hopes up. We appreciate all that Cassandra and her assistant Lupe did for us!-Kathy and Tyler

Two years ago I was in a motor vehicle accident and needed a lawyer. I went through many law firms until I heard from a friend about Carlson Law firm. Not only are they professional and straightforward but they are caring as well. My Legal assistant Judy Marulanda was with me throughout my case and consistently went out of her way to check up on me and make sure I was getting all necessary treatment for my injuries. This company values not only their work but their clientele! Highly recommend Judy Marulanda when becoming a client!

Went to The Carlson Law Firm to move my case forward.I worked with Jamesha Taylor, and she is the most hard working person I've ever met. She was transparent and knowledgeable about everything. She will constantly update me every step of the way. I was very cooperative and that made our relationship in this case possible.Thank you for the incredible help.

Elements of a Personal Injury Case

When you’re hurt, you need to contact an attorney right away. Your attorney will need to begin collecting evidence to prove your case right away. Your attorney will need to provide evidence that supports a negligence claim.

To succeed in a personal injury claim, you and your attorney will need to provide evidence for the negligence elements:

  • Duty. The person or corporation had an obligation to avoid or minimize the risk of foreseeable harm to you or a loved one.
  • Breach of duty. Once duty is established, proving a breach of duty means the person or entity failed to exercise the same level of care a reasonable or prudent person in the same or similar circumstances.
  • Causation. A plaintiff will need to prove that the defendant’s actions caused their injuries. In many cases, causation is fairly straightforward. However, it can become tricky when there are multiple plaintiffs or defendants involved. This is why it is extremely important to have a team of personal injury lawyers by your side.
  • Damages. In Texas, a plaintiff needs to show they suffered real and measurable damages as a result of the defendant’s actions.

The Carlson Law Firm is Where Compassion Meets Injury Law

The Carlson Commitment

Navigating a personal injury lawsuit is not easy. It requires experience, skill and a reputation that instills fear into the insurance company. Every Carlson Law Firm attorney has courtroom experience. Sometimes, the insurance company refuses to settle for the amount you need for your full recovery. If that occurs, with a Carlson Attorney by your side, you know that you already have everything you need to get the most compensation possible.

After an unexpected injury, you’re dealing with potentially life-altering pain. The insurance company often relies on this period to swoop in and settle your claim before you 1) understand the full extent of your injuries and 2) understand you’re not 100% capable of negotiating.

This is where our attorneys come in. We will handle the paperwork and negotiations with the insurance company while you focus on yourself.

A Killeen accident can be expensive. Between medical bills, lost wages and other unexpected financial burdens, you will face a mountain of potential debt. Our legal experts can provide valuable insight to fully understand how much a defendant should pay you for each area of your loss.

Part of our negotiation strategy is being ready to take your case to court. This is what actually helps recover the substantial compensation you deserve.

What is the lawsuit process?

Every personal injury case is unique. However, they typically follow the following steps:

  2. Negotiate. Once our attorneys have gathered the necessary information and evidence to prove your claim, we will begin negotiation talks with the defendant’s insurance company.
