Wichita Falls Personal Injury Attorney Michael Grossman
In our experience, we’ve seen a few things happen in Wichita Falls. Over the past 25 years of practicing law here, we’ve seen a drought wreak havoc on the town. We’ve also seen the expansion of Sheppard Air Force Base and even the record high temperatures that can’t seem to crawl back down.
Living in Wichita Falls isn’t always easy, but it still feels like a hometown because the people who live here make it worthwhile. Those that live here are sticking it out, and we’re doing the same, because our town still has the same values it’s always had.

Here’s why you might need a personal injury lawyer in Wichita Falls.
To ignore the fact that an accident could happen in Wichita Falls is not realistic. However, many property owners and insurance companies would have you believe that accidents, like tornadoes simply drop from the sky and strike people at random. Unlike tornadoes, there are very few accidents that were not the result of someone’s negligence. How else would one explain that despite the population in Wichita Falls increasing dramatically over the past several decades, the number of accidents has actually declined?
The best explanation is that the cost of negligently injuring another person has gone up, leading people to be more conscious of safety. This has made the community as a whole much safer. However, many still of have not gotten the message that we owe one another a duty to behave in a safe, responsible manner. When an employer, property owner, driver, or bar fails to fulfill their duties under the law and an injury results, the victims of their negligence deserve compensation.
Finding justice for injury victims is what personal injury lawsuits are all about. That is why Grossman Law Offices is proud to represent injury victims in many different kinds of accidents. The most common types of accident include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Drunk driving accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Non-subscriber work injuries
- Premises liability
- Wrongful death accidents
- Liquor Liability accidents
These are just a few of the areas where we have experience in the law. If your situation isn’t one listed above, don’t worry. We’ve seen a lot, and there’s no case too large or too small for us to handle. A personal injury lawyer can help you get full recompense for your losses, getting your life back to normal after an injury.
Your case can be trickier in Wichita Falls.
Cases here will be a little different than they will in, say, Austin for example. In Wichita Falls, you’ve got a city spanning over three counties (Archer, Clay, and Wichita) and extremely close to the Oklahoma state line. This can create legal complexities, to say the least. Suppose someone is traveling through Wichita Falls, headed back to Oklahoma, injures you on the road, and keeps on going across the state line.
You’ll need an attorney that knows to pursue that defendant into Oklahoma, or wherever they may reside. Whether it is by using reciprocity agreements between Texas and Oklahoma or the Texas long-arm statute that permits wrongdoers to be served and brought to justice in any state throughout the country, the attorneys at Grossman Law Offices do not let lines on a map stand between our clients and justice.
In extreme instances, matters between citizens from different states have to be resolved in federal court. Unlike many Texas personal injury attorneys, Wichita Falls personal injury attorney Michael Grossman is not only licensed to argue in federal court, but has actually argued cases in federal court. If there is a legal lever to get an injured person justice, the attorneys at Grossman Law will pull it.
The Grossman Law Offices Difference
Admittedly, Grossman Law Offices is not a large firm. We see this as a positive for our clients. While many larger firms will sign up clients and assign them to a lawyer who is fresh out of law school, Michael Grossman puts his more than a quarter of a century of legal experience to work for every single client who comes through our door. Helping clients is how we make the community safer for all of us.
Unlike larger firms, we realize that Grossman Law Offices exists to help our clients, not to enrich ourselves. For most people, their personal injury lawsuit is the single most important legal action of their lives. You’re the one who has been injured. You’re the one with the stack of medical bills and no income coming in. It is your case, not your attorneys.
For this reason Grossman Law Offices views lawsuit as a partnership. You have the legal standing to file claim and we have the legal expertise to see your claim through to a successful conclusion. Many law firms view themselves as the senior partners in this relationship. Not at Grossman Law Offices. We never pressure clients to take settlements that are not in their interests. We believe our job is to litigate the case and give you the information you need to make informed decisions.

A lot of law firms talk a good game, but once you hire them, getting in touch with them is a chore. We understand that you have a busy life and having an attorney shouldn’t add to that. That is why our clients not only get our attorneys’ personal cell phones, but they are also free to contact us anytime, day or night. If you have a question at 2 in the morning, we think your attorney should be there to answer it. Practicing law is about making your life easier, not ours.
