Types of Cases We Handle
Portner Bond, PLLC handles a wide range of personal injury cases, such as:
- Car accidents: Driver error is often to blame for car accidents. Today, too many people drive while texting, distracted, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If you were involved in a car accident in which the other driver was to blame, Portner Bond, PLLC can help you seek compensation for your injuries and property damage.
- Truck accidents: Large commercial trucks serve an important role in our economy, but they can also be dangerous on our roads. Trucking companies and truck drivers operate under numerous rules and regulations meant to protect those with whom they share the road. When something goes wrong, it can be challenging to determine who is the responsible party. The experienced truck accident attorneys of Portner Bond, PLLC know how to handle these difficult cases.
- Motorcycle accidents: Because of their smaller size, motorcycles can go unseen by other drivers on the road, especially when those drivers are distracted. This leads to dangerous and sometimes deadly motorcycle accidents. Portner Bond, PLLC has represented many motorcyclists and helped them pursue compensation after an accident.
- Wrongful death: If your loved one was killed in an accident caused by another party’s negligence or wrongdoing, you could pursue compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit.
- Workplace injuries: Employers in Texas are not required to provide workers’ compensation benefits to their employees. Portner Bond, PLLC can help you either seek benefits if your employer carries workers’ comp insurance or file a lawsuit if no workers’ comp coverage is available.

Why You Should Act Quickly
According to Texas state law, there is a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury cases. That means you must file a lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident.
Two years may seem like a long time, but you should not delay in filing a personal injury lawsuit. First, preparing a lawsuit can take a great deal of time. Waiting until the eve of the deadline may have worked for school assignments, but it doesn’t work with legal filings. Second, over time, memories fade, evidence disappears, documents go missing, and witnesses move away. Waiting too long to conduct an investigation could seriously weaken your case.
