A Team That Fights For You

For over 40 years, The Carlson Law Firm has called the Killeen-Fort Hood Area its home. We have represented thousands of military service members and their families and many of our attorneys began their legal careers in the military. Today, we’ve grown beyond the Killeen-Fort Hood area to 12 locations across Texas, and continue to represent America’s bravest and their families with the same fearless determination displayed by our nation’s armed forces.

We represent veterans and active-duty soldiers across a variety of practice areas, ranging from Personal Injury, to Medical Malpractice, To Criminal Defense. Find out how The Carlson Law Firm can serve you:

  • EFP - Roadside Bomb

    EFP/Roadside Bomb Injury Lawsuit

    A deadly form of roadside bomb, known as explosively formed penetrators (EFPs), put U.S. military service members and contractors at increased risk each and every day while they were bravely serving their country overseas. We now know that enemy forces would not have been able to manufacture these deadly explosive devices without the aid of certain international banks that masked wire transactions to help fund terrorist groups.

    If you were injured, or someone you know was killed by an explosive device in Iraq or Afghanistan, you may be eligible for compensation. Contact The Carlson Law Firm today to schedule your free case evaluation.

  • military hearing loss

    3M Combat Earplug Lawsuit

    A whistleblower lawsuit brought by the federal government against Minnesota-based 3M alleged that the company knowingly supplied defective Combat Arms Earplugs to the U.S. military. The company is accused of violating the “False Claims Act” by selling the defective products, falsifying test results and not disclosing the design defect. The company’s negligent actions exposed thousands of U.S. servicemembers to hearing loss over 12 years.

    Veterans with hearing problems who served in any branch of the military between 2003 and 2015 may be able to file a 3M earplug lawsuit. If you are a veteran or know a veteran with a hearing problem, contact The Carlson Law Firm. We have a qualified 3M Earplug lawsuit attorney ready to help you file your claim.

  • Asbestos Exposure Lawsuit

    Serving the country in the military comes with inherent risk, but many veterans were unknowingly exposed to hidden dangers when working in certain capacities where asbestos was present.

    Vets who developed mesothelioma and other asbestos-related conditions after exposure to asbestos in the military qualify for special financial benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), including disability compensation, special monthly compensation, and service-connected death benefits for surviving family members.

    If you or someone you love has been seriously injured, died or fallen ill with cancer or any other asbestos-related conditions, call our attorneys for a free consultation today.

  • VA Medical Malpractice

    Members of the military and their families may not be aware that they can take action if they have been harmed by a doctor’s mistake or any other type of medical malpractice in a military hospital. Despite persistent myths, there is no government immunity that shields military doctors and hospitals for professional negligence that causes injury or death to a patient. Military medical professionals are held to the same standards of professional medical care as any other healthcare provider.

    If you’re suffering due to Military Medical Malpractice or VA Hospital Malpractice, contact our firm. The Carlson Law Firm can help.

  • Military Aviation Crashes

    When a US military aircraft crashes, strict protocols are followed to ensure that the next of kin receive immediate support. Tragically, these spouses, children, or parents are left with more questions than answers should they desire civil justice for the death of their service member.

    If someone you love was injured in a military aviation crash, contact a military aircraft crash lawyer from The Carlson Law Firm right away. We have the resources and skills it takes to pursue the monetary compensation you and your family deserve.

  • Mil Crim Fac

    Military Criminal Defense

    Because the military criminal justice system is very different from the civilian criminal court process, it is crucial to work with lawyers who have the knowledge and resources to handle these cases. Our legal team has decades of experience protecting the rights, ranks, and future of military members – and a Military Criminal Defense Attorney from The Carlson Law Firm is prepared to fight for you.

  • Discharge Upgrades
