Car and Truck Accident

Automobile collisions are the most common cause of serious personal injuries and wrongful death claims in Texas.  Every year, hundreds of innocent people are seriously injured or die at the hands of negligent drivers who speed, ignore signage, use cell phones, send text messages, are inexperienced, or are under the influence.

If you have been involved in a car wreck and do not have an experienced lawyer on your side, the insurance companies have an advantage. They know the system. Just talking to an insurance adjuster can permanently harm your case and prevent you from being able to recover money you may be owed.

Texting and Cell Phone use while driving.

Studies show texting while driving can increase the risk of a crash over 100 times compared to normal driving. While many legistatures have passed laws prohibiting drivers from texting, studies show many drivers, particularly young people, still text while driving despite common knowledge of its dangers.

Trucking companies that fail to maintain their trucks.

Trucking companies are required to properly maintain their vehicles and conduct vehicle inspections to assure they are safe. However, many trucking companies and truckers neglect inspections, needed repairs and maintenance to save money. Putting defective and dangerous equipment on the road. Putting other drivers at risk.

Un-trained or un-licensed truck drivers.

Before hiring a driver, trucking companies are required by law to obtain the trucker’s driving record and contact their past employers. All too often, trucking companies break the law and put dangerous drivers behind the wheel.
