A Houston Lawyer Who Holds Doctors and Hospital Accountable For Medical Mistakes
It costs you nothing for Hugh Howerton to investigate your case and tell you whether you were a victim of medical malpractice. Hugh Howerton accepts all medical malpractice cases on a contingency fee. That means there is never an up-front fee you have to pay to hire him. You only pay after he wins your case by settlement or verdict.
