Houston Car Accident Attorneys
Protecting the rights of car wreck victims in Texas
Car accidents are always unexpected. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, especially a serious one, the aftermath can be overwhelming. At the moment of impact, our bodies go into “fight or flight” mode and release adrenaline, which makes us more alert and temporarily numbs pain. As a result, people who are injured in a car accident often won’t begin to feel the full extent of their symptoms and injuries until hours later or even the next day.
The Kishinevsky Law Firm is a personal injury law firm representing individuals injured in car accidents in the greater Houston area. When you or a loved one are hurt in a crash or collision that wasn’t your fault, having an attorney on your side can mean the difference between the insurance company taking advantage of you or securing the financial compensation to which you’re entitled. Let us take the burden off your shoulders while you take the time you need to recover from your injuries. We’re here to help.

How can a Houston car accident attorney help?
After a car accident, victims are left dealing with a laundry list of problems even while trying to recover from their injuries and emotional trauma. These immediate issues can include things like:
- Repairing your vehicle or dealing with the total loss process if it’s damaged enough to be deemed a total loss
- Obtaining a rental car or arranging other transportation
- Getting appropriate medical care and treatment for your injuries
- Making an insurance claim and dealing with the insurance company/companies involved
- Making appropriate arrangements with your job
Unfortunately, insurance companies are aware of this situation all too well and will often try to take advantage of people who have been injured in a car accident at a time when they are vulnerable. Why do they do this? Simply put – it’s part of their business model. Every dollar that’s paid out on a claim is a dollar less that they make in profit.

The Kishinevsky Law Firm want to help and guide you through every step of the claims process, deal with the insurance company on your behalf, work with you to achieve the best results possible, and help you get your life back on track.
