Car Accident Lawyer
Our car accident lawyers have successfully resolved thousands of cases through trial and settlement for clients injured in serious car and truck accidents. Our lawyers refuse to settle cases for an amount that does not fully compensate our clients for their injuries and, as a result, spend most of their time in the courtroom. This has enabled our firm to consistently obtain substantial awards for our clients in courts throughout Texas.

The Dangers of Driving:
Although we can do everything possible to protect ourselves, driving can have severe and sometimes fatal consequences. Over 516,000 car accidents occurred in Harris, Galveston, Dallas, and Travis counties in the past four years. In one year alone, more than 3,400 people were killed in car and truck accidents across Texas, approximately 40% involving a drunk or intoxicated driver.
Texas Car Accident Statistics:
Shockingly, information gathered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration demonstrates that the number of fatalities involving drunk drivers has remained remarkably steady over the past five years.
A significant portion of these accidents occur due to excessive speed and cars leaving the roadway, and a disturbingly high number have resulted in deaths. The most populated county in Texas, Harris County, has consistently led the state in car accident and truck accident fatalities, averaging nearly 373 per year. Dallas County ranks second with an average of 239 fatalities, followed closely by Tarrant County, Bexar County, and Travis County. More on this website
Don’t Wait to Act
The circumstances of every car accident and truck accident are unique. While the damage to the vehicles involved may be immediately apparent, physical injuries to the drivers and passengers often develop over days, weeks, or even months. If you’ve been in a car accident or truck accident within the past 2 years, it’s important that you contact one of our auto accident lawyers as soon as possible, while the details of the accident are fresh in your mind and you still have time to file suit, if necessary.
It’s also critical that you DO NOT speak or give statements to the other drivers’ insurance agents or accept any settlement offer before speaking with an experienced accident lawyer; it is common for insurance companies to try to encourage settlement before you have had a chance to consult with a lawyer or see your doctor by offering small sums of money. The insurance agent may tell you that this is all that you can recover, knowing that if you hire a lawyer, you could get even more than five times that amount. Do not fall for this common trick.

A Settlement or Other Remedy
While our goal, as trial lawyers, is always to reach a quick resolution, we will only do so if we are confident that our client is receiving a full and fair recovery. Whether your case is settled or tried before a jury, you can always rest assured that our car accident lawyers are committed to ensuring that you are adequately compensated for your losses and injuries. Having worked with and fought against insurance adjusters and insurance defense lawyers both in and out of the courtroom, our Texas accident lawyers have the experience necessary to properly value and efficiently resolve your case.
