Shane R. Kadlec: Board Certified Personal Injury Trial Attorney in Houston

Firm Overview

Maximizing your award to minimize your heartache

The Law Office of Shane R. Kadlec focuses on recovering compensation for personal injury victims. Our legal team serves clients throughout Texas, including Houston, Beaumont, Galveston, Austin and the Rio Grande Valley communities. We handle all personal injury cases on contingency, meaning you do not pay any attorney's fees until you recover on your claim. When you retain our law firm, you can expect:

-Substantial litigation experience - Attorney Shane R. Kadlec has more than 15 years of experience in civil jury trials and negotiations.

-Attention to your physical and legal recovery -If you are uninsured, our firm refers you to doctors who provide quality medical care and who postpone billing you until your personal injury case is successfully resolved.
-Responsiveness and accessibility - Our law firm maintains a policy of touching base with you monthly, even if the status of your case has not changed.
-Results - Our goal, like yours, is to achieve the maximum possible recovery for your injuries. We have a record of success.
Personal injury litigation

By concentrating our practice almost entirely on personal injury litigation, our firm is able to devote our substantial resources to the effective investigation of our clients' accidents and the thorough preparation for their trials. This level of attention is a primary reason for our success in personal injury, medical malpractice, auto accident and wrongful death cases involving:

-Gunshot accidents
-Slip and falls
-Premises liability (dangerous property)
-Dog bites
-Pharmaceutical errors
-Dental malpractice
-Traumatic brain injury
-Spinal cord injury
-Injured children
-Compensation for auto accidents

Negotiating with auto insurance companies can make you feel victimized again after you have already suffered injuries in a car accident. Claims adjusters represent the goals of the companies they work for - to increase profits and reduce expenses. Succeeding at their job duties often means delaying, denying or underpaying your claim. Our attorney works hard to recover what you deserve after:

-Car accidents
-Truck accidents
-Motorcycle accidents
-Construction vehicle accidents
-Distracted driving accidents
-Bus accidents
-Train accident
-Accidents with uninsured/underinsured motorists
-Recovery for workplace accidents in Houston

If your employer does not participate in the Texas workers compensation system, you can sue in civil court to recover damages for your on-the-job injuries. Our lawyer helps workers recover from nonparticipating employers called "nonsubscribers" - for serious workplace accidents involving:

-Industrial mishaps
-Oilfield and refinery catastrophes
-Longshoremen and harbor workers injuries
-Construction accidents

We also handle Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) claims in railroad exposure and collision cases.

Office Information

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Helping real clients and families overcome some of their greatest challenges and making a difference in their lives is why I became a lawyer.

Educating people how injury cases are handled by insurance companies, Courts, Judges and juries, allows my clients to know what to expect and helps them navigate the best path forward.

Ultimately, my job is to get money for our clients, but my primary service is to explain how the law applies to their situation, what all their options are, and assist them in their recovery.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

I am a Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas State Bar.

I have successfully represented thousands of clients in hundreds of lawsuits.

My clients are provided medical care options that may not be otherwise available to them after an injury.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We care, we respond, we work, and we win.
