How Our Houston Car Accident Attorney Can Help You
Some people wrongly think that they can save themselves a lot of money by handling their car accident case by themselves. They want to avoid attorney fees and keep their entire settlement. However, in reality, you are likely to secure far less money on your own than you would with the help of a lawyer. In some cases, victims who represent themselves do not recover anything at all.
One of the benefits of hiring a lawyer is that the lawyer will be able to conduct an independent investigation of your crash. This investigation will help to determine the cause of it. The attorney can also collect important evidence which points to who is liable for your injuries.
Another way that a lawyer can help to car accident victim is by handling all communication with the negligent driver’s insurance company. Insurers in these cases often try to accept victims into accepting settlements that are much less than what they deserve. An auto accident attorney can negotiate for a fair and full settlement. If necessary, the attorney can also take the case to trial to fight for what you deserve.
Common Causes of Houston Car Accidents
Car crashes occur for a variety of reasons. As our Houston car accident attorneys have seen over the years, some of the most frequent causes of car accidents are:
- Drunk driving or drugged driving
- Distracted driving (with texting while driving is a major problem today)
- Driver fatigue
- Unsafe lane changes
- Reckless Driving
- Failure to yield or obey traffic signs or lights.
Not all car accidents involve other vehicles. Many single-car crashes occur because of defective auto parts or due to poorly designed and/or maintained roads. In some cases, a faulty repair by an auto mechanic may contribute to a crash that results in injury or death.
