HOUSTON CAR ACCIDENTS
Most of us find ourselves driving farther and more frequently with more vehicles on the road than ever before. Speeding and driver distractions like cell phones, driving under the influence, bad weather conditions and poorly maintained vehicles can all play a role in Houston car accidents. The result is more traffic accidents resulting in personal injury and fatalities on our roads than ever before.
If you have been injured or lost a loved one in an accident that should have been avoided, you may have grounds to sue for monetary damages.
There are no legal fees unless we win your case
Types of Houston car accidents:
Truck/ company vehicle accidents
Multiple vehicle accidents
Who is negligent?
Determining who is liable for an accident requires careful analysis of the claim. In order to win a negligence case, the injured party must show specific elements that the person at fault was negligent.
This is the legal responsibility of one party to act in a certain way toward another party. For example, obeying the laws and driving responsibly so as to not put others in harm’s way.
Breach of Duty
Showing that the other party did something wrong, failing to exercise reasonable judgement.
The defendant’s breach of duty must be linked with causing the accident.
The extent of the injury and damages which may include property, lost wages and future earning, medical expenses past and future, physical impairment, mental anguish, the loss of consortium and the inability to perform household services that relate to the claim.
Texas is not a no-fault state. That means that if it is determined you are at-fault you are responsible for medical bills and property damage for yourself and anyone else in the accident. If the amount exceeds your amount of liability insurance coverage you will have to pay out of pocket.
