PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY
Former Defense Experience on Your Side
Few things are worse than suffering a severe injury or losing a family member in a serious accident. For many people, such an experience represents a turning point in their lives. Massive bills for medical treatment can add up to an unmanageable financial burden that may lead to bankruptcy. To make matters worse, your family may have been deprived of its livelihood as you are forced out of work by temporary or partial disability.
While you try to find a way to make ends meet, you also have to cope with the pain, suffering and emotional distress that follow in the aftermath of an accident. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, you may be entitled to recover financial compensation by filing a personal injury or
wrongful death claim. Failure to take effective action now, however, could mean that you will receive far less than you deserve - or nothing at all. You need a hard-hitting Houston personal injury lawyer on your side to fight for your right to compensation.

About The Daspit Law Firm
Prior to founding The Daspit Law Firm, John Daspit spent several years working as a lawyer for Fulbright & Jaworski, one of the largest and most prestigious law firms in Texas and in the world. He has worked on a wide variety of cases during the course of his career, from plant explosions,
wrongful death and
truck accident claims, to high-stakes business disputes and
property contamination cases. He has spent years working on high-profile litigation, including major cases such as the BP Texas City Refinery explosion in 2005, a case to which Attorney Daspit devoted 7,000 - 8,000 hours. In addition to his experience as a plaintiff's lawyer, he also has a background in insurance defense, which gives him unique insight into how an insurance company will approach your case and the strategies they may use to attempt to defeat your claim. He treats every case he represents as if it were his own,
personally handling cases and working to achieve outstanding results for his clients. Recently, John Daspit has:
- Represented a pipeline company seeking damages based on defective ERW pipe used in the construction of an oil pipeline of 455 miles. The case settled favorably the week before trial for $20.2 million. The attorney's fees and expenses for the case totaled $4.362 million.
- Represented an exploration and production company in an arbitration concerning the interpretation of a contractual area of mutual interest (AMI) provision; the other side sought the conveyance of property interests, or alternatively damages for the alleged failure to convey property interests, which it valued at $330 million. A week-long arbitration hearing resulted in a complete victory for our side, including the recovery of all fees and expenses. The attorney's fees and expenses in the case totaled $2.136 million.
Houston Car Accident Attorney
Car accidents and other types of motor vehicle collisions are among the leading causes of
catastrophic injury and death in Houston and across the United States. In fact, the Texas Department of Transportation reports that in 2012 there were 27,010 Houstonians injured and 193 killed in traffic crashes throughout the city. If the other driver caused your accident, such as by
aggressive driving, texting or talking on a cell phone, or
drinking and driving, you are most likely entitled to pursue compensation by filing a claim against his or her liability insurance policy. We can help you by gathering evidence to prove fault in the case, preparing your claim and representing you with the insurance company. If they refuse to pay you the amount that you deserve, we may even take the case to trial in pursuit of a jury verdict in your favor.

We work on a contingency-fee basis, meaning that you do not have to pay us a fee up front and will owe us nothing unless we win your case.
