Car Accident Case
I was in a terrible car wreck back in June. I found Brooks & Radchenko and was put into contact with Halina. She assisted me in finding and receiving medical treatment to treat my injuries so that I could return to work. She also fought for the insurance company to pay a settlement to cover all of my expenses from the car wreck, my lost wages from missing work, and compensation for my pain. I could not imagine having a better attorney for this situation.
Child Support Case
Brooks and Radchenko did an amazing job on my case. They were able to resolve my family issue and allow me to see my children on a weekly basis. Halina and Britton walked me through the process and fought for me in court. I would highly recommend this firm for any family law situation.

Halina Radchenko was so hardworking when she was handling my car accident. Unlike with other attorneys, I always felt supported and confident with her help, and I could not be more pleased with the results!
I really needed a lawyer and a law firm that would go above and beyond for me, and not make me feel like another name on the roster. Britton Brooks was that attorney! My trial went smoothly, and I couldn’t be more grateful!

Workers’ compensation offers no-fault benefits - meaning when you are injured, you are entitled to compensation. If your employer has workers’ comp benefits, as long as you notify your employer promptly of your accident you are entitled to benefits. However, Texas does not require employers to have workers’ comp coverage.
If your employer is a “non subscriber,” meaning they are “bare” or without workers’ compensation coverage, you may sue your employer if you are injured on the job due to your employer’s negligence. Damages available exceed typical workers’ compensation benefits and can be substantial.
