Texas Personal Injury Attorneys

Who We Are: Texas Personal Injury Attorneys

Whether we’re taking care of routine paperwork or arguing before our state’s highest court, The Bob Richardson Law Firm believes in serving our clients with the utmost care, skill and professionalism. Our clients come first – always – and we strive to treat each case as if it is our most important one. That’s how we’ve forged a reputation as one of the most respected personal injury and social security disability law firms in the state of Texas.

Former newscaster, prosecutor and Texas House of Representatives member Bob Richardson, now retired, founded our law firm. He had a simple goal: To help people who have been injured or disabled obtain the benefits and compensation they need to survive and get their lives back on track. His founding goal continues to guide us today. If our work makes our clients’ lives a little better, we feel like we’ve done our job.

We also believe strongly that those who cause harm to others through their negligent or reckless conduct – and their insurance companies – should be held responsible for their actions. Every time we secure a favorable verdict or settlement for a client, we hope we make Texas a safer place.

Our firm features offices in Austin and Waco*, and we assist clients throughout Round Rock, Georgetown, Killeen, Temple, Cedar Park, Lakeway, Taylor, Belton and surrounding Texas communities.

Earning Your Trust is Our Goal

Our Texas Personal Injury Practice Let us deal with the insurance company so they don't hassle you.

Our Texas personal injury attorneys and staff believe that a client who has suffered an injury in an unfortunate accident should focus on their physical and emotional recovery while we take care of the rest. This means we will act on your behalf with the insurance company, medical providers and creditors to ensure your worry and headaches are kept to a minimum.

We strive to resolve cases through negotiated settlements, which can provide our accident and injury clients with full, fair and timely resolution to their cases. However, we develop every case as if it is going to trial and are always prepared to aggressively protect our clients’ rights and interests before a judge or jury.

Our firm also works with an extensive network of highly qualified experts, and we employ the latest in technology. For instance, in one recent case, we hired a helicopter and experts to photograph and survey an accident scene and to create a computer reconstruction of a collision. In another case, we scanned voluminous medical records onto a CD-ROM and projected the pages onto a large screen for the jury to read along with a medical expert.  We also work with mock juries and jury consultants on appropriate cases.

In 2009. Attorney Don R. Cotton, secured a major victory in the Texas Supreme Court for a family whose seven-year-old son had been severely injured by a driver who sped through a red light during a police chase in the case of Tanner, et al. v. Nationwide Mutual First Insurance Co. The state’s highest court upheld our hard fought jury verdict that concluded Nationwide Insurance was responsible for providing coverage. The decision is now frequently cited in scholarly works and seminar papers as an important case in the law on auto accidents and insurance coverage. This result shows not only our legal skill but also our commitment to seeking justice for our clients.

Our Texas Social Security Disability Practice

In addition to representing personal injury victims, The Bob Richardson Law Firm maintains a robust Social Security disability benefits practice. We believe that when Texans pay their Social Security taxes, they are paying for insurance that will protect them if they are no longer able to work because of a disability. We work tirelessly to secure those benefits for our clients and to make sure the government lives up to its obligation.

We also know that the Social Security benefits process can be extremely complex. People who are dealing with a disability need compassionate and competent legal assistance to help them get through a challenging time. We assist clients in obtaining benefits for:

We are also proud to announce that we have added Veterans’ Benefits to our practice areas. We believe strongly that those who have sacrificed themselves to serve and protect our country in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines should receive the full amount of benefits that they need and deserve if they become disabled as a result of their service.
