About Hector

Learn Hector’s areas of practice.

For the first 12 years of his career, Texas Work Injury attorney Hector L. Sandoval represented injured railroad workers and their families in over half the states in U.S. After spending much of this time on road fighting for injured railroaders’ rights, in 2015, Hector brought his experience back home to Houston. As one of three shareholders of Sandoval & Waldman, PLLC, Hector focused his practice on representing injured Texas workers and their families all over the State Texas. In a short three-year period, Hector developed a practice that focused on holding Texas Non-Subscriber Employers responsible when their negligence resulted in serious injuries to their employees. During this same time, Hector also represented individuals that suffered serious injuries in car crash cases, premises cases and crashes involving 18-Wheeler trucks, gaining vast experience dealing with insurance companies. In 2018, Hector decided that it was time to take his national and state-wide experience and create a firm that was truly dedicated to representing the injured Texan Worker! This is what we do at Sandoval Law Firm, PLLC, Putting up the Fight for Injured Workers’ Rights!

Absolutely wonderful lawyer!!
Mr. Sandoval worked very hard on my non-subscriber worker's compensation case! He was very knowledgeable and did a wonderful job getting me compensated. I was very happy with his service and though I hope I never need to use a lawyer again, I would go directly to him if I ever do!!

I really appreciate Hector and his legal team they were very informative about how the case was going an what to expect along the way. I highly recommend you give Hector chance. I asked him once what made him choose to be a lawyer. He simply replied helping people that can't fight big businesses and or corporations is what he enjoy doing. I knew then i had the right person.

Great Service great lawyer good service
I found Mr Sandoval in the Spanish news paper after I had a car accident with my daughter and took a while to get it settlement back from the insurance because there wore a lot of issues specially because right on the middle of my case they decided to change my claim agent with out let me know but Mr. Sandoval and his associates push hard so get what we deserve and even lower the bills so we can get as much we could we did. I appreciate all the help and hard work and I highly recommend Mr. Sandoval.
