This law office is the only firm that I would ever suggest to friends and family. I was significantly hurt in a motorcycle accident. Tim and his staff went to bat for us and took care of everything. They helped us deal with our insurance company and get us benefits I didn’t even know we had. They then fought for us in all of the other proceedings and won a wonderful settlement.

Tate Law Offices handles a wide range of injury cases in the Dallas area, including: SEE ALL CASES WE HANDLE


Tate Law Offices PC has office locations in downtown Houston Galleria area. When you reach out to a personal injury attorney in our Houston law firm, you can expect the following:

  • Courtesy/Free Case Review—We will speak with you by telephone, at our Houston office, at your home or at a location convenient to you. We will address your questions honestly and give you the straight facts about your best legal options.
  • Prompt Investigation—We will conduct a prompt investigation of your case because delays can result is the loss of critical evidence. We will interview witnesses, analyze your medical records and gather other relevant documents. We routinely interview Houston police officers and obtain records from the Houston Police Department or other relevant police departments. We will conduct a thorough investigation as if the case is going to court. That preparation and command of the facts gives us an advantage in negotiating a settlement for you.
  • Settlement Demand—We attempt to resolve cases out of court and force insurance companies to pay just compensation. We will prepare and submit a settlement demand on your behalf to the at-fault party’s insurer. We have years of experience negotiating claims with insurance lawyers and adjusters in Houston. We do everything possible to achieve a top dollar settlement for our clients while seeking a timely resolution.
  • Filing a Lawsuit—Tate Law Offices does not file a lawsuit in every Houston accident case that we handle. But when an insurance company refuses to make a fair settlement, we are prepared to file a lawsuit and let a Houston County jury render justice based on the facts. We will continue to attempt to negotiate a settlement with the other side as the litigation process proceeds – and, we are usually successful in this attempt.
  • Proceeding to Trial—The attorneys at Tate Law Offices are skilled trial lawyers. The majority of personal injury cases are filed in Texas state courts in Houston County or another county depending on where the accident took place. We work to resolve claims out of court when possible because a negotiated settlement generally allows clients to receive money in their pocket more quickly. But, if a trial is in the best interest of our clients we proceed to trial.
  • Distributing funds – After a settlement is reached or a judgment is entered, we can work to resolve any health care or other liens that are attached to your recovery and disburse the funds you are owed.

Tate Law Offices works on a contingency fee basis. This means our clients will not pay any legal fees or case costs unless we are successful in obtaining financial compensation for you.

It is our goal in every case to collect the maximum compensation for our clients’ injury.

Featured FAQ

How do I get the most money for my case?

Evidence is essential in order to get top dollar for an injury case. This means there must be proof of who was at fault for the accident and that the accident caused your injuries. Police reports and witness statements go a long way to proving fault while detailed medical records from qualified doctors (many times orthopedics or neurologists) are used to show the cause and extent of the injuries. We work to build a solid case in order to seek maximum compensation for our clients’ injuries.

Is there a benefit to being represented by a lawyer?

Most of the time in an accident injury situation, an insurance company will be your opponent. Insurance companies are very skilled at denying or minimizing injury claims – that’s how they make money. Insurance adjusters regularly deny claims that should be paid, or they offer only a small percent of the fair value of a claim. Our goal is the opposite. We develop a settlement package presenting our client’s case that often can result in our client receiving 10 to 20 times more compensation than what the insurance adjusters might offer for their injury claim. In such case, even after legal fees, our clients can net more money in their pocket. Even better, we work on a completely contingent basis, so there are no legal fees unless we are successful in collecting compensation for our clients.

Should I talk to the insurance company?

Do not talk to anyone at the insurance company. This includes their insurance adjusters and defense lawyers. Insurance companies frequently record phone conversations during which they ask leading questions designed to produce testimony that they can use to deny your case. If we are your lawyers, we will do the talking for you so you do not fall into the insurance company traps that are designed to decrease the value of your claim.

How do I pay my medical bills?

Medical bills can be paid through various manners such as health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, Personal Injury Protection insurance funds, deferred billing, and letters of protection. Depending on all of the facts surrounding your case and the insurance companies involved, we produce a strategy that we believe will best benefit our clients. Also, even if our clients do not have access to health insurance, we can assist them with getting medical care that is paid at the end of the case – which means no upfront medical bills.

How do I collect my lost income?

Even if an injured person is not able to work after an accident, insurance company tactics are to disagree and assert that the person could work so the insurance companies can deny the claim for lost income. It is important to have a qualified doctor’s medical documentation that proves the inability to work for a certain period of time due to an injury. We work with our clients’ doctors and employers to prove the medical reason for not working and the calculation of lost earnings. This frequently results in a fight with the insurance company, but we believe that with solid evidence we are ultimately able to win the fight and collect our clients’ lost income.
