Practice Areas

Car Accidents

Car accidents cause a large number of personal injury cases, often resulting in serious injuries or death. Many of these cases involve permanent impairment, disfigurement, or long-term medical conditions that will have an indefinite impact on the injured person. ​

18-Wheeler Accidents

In the McAllen area, there are an alarming number of commercial truck accidents, which frequently result in serious or catastrophic injuries or death. These are complicated cases with multiple liable parties. ​

Slip & Fall

This category of claims includes issues such as inadequate security, but slip-and-fall injuries are by far the most common. An injured person must typically demonstrate that the property owner either created the dangerous condition or was aware of it prior to the fall and did nothing to warn the injured person. ​

Oil Field Accidents

Oil well or oilfield workers have some of the most dangerous jobs in the country. Working on an oilfield increases the risk of danger and potential for injury because of the dangerous and unpredictable materials involved

Wrongful Death

The death of a family member is always difficult, no matter the cause. When a loved one is killed due to the negligence of another individual or company, a wrongful death claim may be made on their behalf

Dog Bite Accidents

Dog and animal bites can be traumatic for a victim – especially young victims. While, perhaps seemingly innocuous, a dog or animal bite may result in long-term or permanent injury

Pharmaceutical Injuries

Some pharmacists are under increased pressure to work longer hours and fill more prescriptions than in the past. If a prescription is filled incorrectly, the consequences can be disastrous.

Medical Malpractice

Health-care providers who fail to meet the accepted standard of care and cause patient harm may face legal consequences. Medical malpractice can occur in a variety of settings and can have serious ramifications for the patient.

Mr. Higdon is great I recommend him for anyone who is searching for a lawyer. He didn’t have a clerk return my calls he himself returned my calls and spoke with me personally and gave me great advice. This was at the time of winter storm Uri , even that didn’t stop him from calling me back. His 30 years experience shows with his clients!!!!!

I am so happy and relieved that Higdon lawfirm took care of me when I had my car accident. Since this was a first time experience for me, I didn’t know what to do with my medical treatments, medical expenses, car rental, and more. They were always there to help! I don’t think I would have been able to handle and track everything on my own. They are honest and trustworthy people. Thank you Higdon Lawfirm!
