Houston Is Highly Dangerous for Motorists

Two cars damaged in a crash

From 2020 to 2022, Houston experienced over 300 traffic deaths per year. That averages to nearly one roadway fatality every single day. Our city's tragic 2022 statistics include:

  • 326 Fatalities
  • 1,563 Suspected Serious Injuries
  • 14,016 Possible Injury Crashes
  • 67,386 Total Crashes

Our Government Is Aware of These Issues

In 2019, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner signed the Vision Zero Executive Order. This plan is designed to eliminate traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030.

Vision Zero's backers hope to achieve their goal by identifying and improving dangerous streets and intersections. This is an admirable goal. It also underlines the fact that our local government has a legal responsibility to maintain safe roads.

The liable party in a lawsuit is not always solely the other driver. If the government contributed to your car accident by failing to fix potholes, maintain proper drainage or design safe roadways, our car accident lawyers can hold them liable. We can also explore whether or not a defective auto part contributed to your car wreck.

Our Car Accident Lawyers
​Pursue Many Types of Compensation

Filing a lawsuit can feel daunting. Some folks avoid it because they simply aren't aware of all the different categories of compensation available to them.

In a personal injury lawsuit, our car accident attorneys can pursue compensation for your:

  • Physical Pain
  • Mental Anguish
  • Property Damage
  • Medical Bills
  • Lost Wages
  • Reduced Earnings

If your accident has compromised your ability to work, our attorneys will pursue compensation for your projected losses. You can depend on our attorneys to calculate the true extent of your losses and pursue the absolute maximum restitution.

I-45 Is Infamous

Houston receives positive national attention for its vibrant community, thriving food scene, artistic culture, and more. Unfortunately, a 2021 report from Budget Direct shed light on a darker aspect of our city. It listed I-45 as the most dangerous road in America, with the stretch running through Houston being the absolute most fatal portion. 

Choosing the Right Car Accident Lawyer Is Especially Important In Texas

Over 85,000 people moved to Houston from July 2021 to July 2022. This means many newly minted locals are unfamiliar with Texas' personal injury laws. Some states do not allow victims to pursue a car accident case if they were even a little bit responsible for their crash. That's not the case in Texas.

Texas uses modified comparative negligence, which allows you to receive financial compensation even if you made an error while driving. What your car accident lawyer must prove is that the other driver was more responsible for the crash than you were.

In Texas, you can receive compensation as long as your percentage of fault is not greater than 50%. Compensation is proportional to your percentage of fault. For example, if you are found to be 40% accountable for your accident, you can receive 60% of the total compensation. If you are found only 10% responsible, you can obtain 90% of the total compensation. These differences can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more. Our state laws make it all the more important to hire Houston car accident lawyers who have won thousands of cases like yours.

There Are Hard Deadlines For Filing a Car Accident Claim

Statute of limitations laws set strict time limits for filing lawsuits. Failing to meet them very likely means you forever lose the ability to receive financial compensation for your car accident injuries. Key Texas statutes to know are for:

Personal Injury

A personal injury lawsuit is filed to seek compensation for damage to yourself and your property. In Texas, an injured person has two years from the day they were harmed to file their lawsuit. 

Wrongful Death

A wrongful death lawsuit is filed by the grieving family of an individual who was killed by another's negligence. In Texas, you have two years from the date of your loved one's passing to file your lawsuit. 

Act Now to Avoid Regrets Later

Our car accident lawyers can ensure you meet deadlines, seek maximum compensation, and protect you from predatory insurance companies. Call (281) 491-5008 or write to discuss your injury claim.

Pedestrians Are Especially Susceptible Here

A study covering the entire 2010s decade found that Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land is among the top 20 most dangerous American metropolitan areas for pedestrians. From 2010 to 2019, drivers killed 1,298 pedestrians in greater Houston. Many more were injured.

Our personal injury attorneys fiercely represent suffering pedestrians. Our victories on their behalf include $350,000 for a pedestrian struck in a crosswalk and $325,035 for a pedestrian struck by a speeding vehicle. 

Key Actions You Can Take to Protect Your Car Accident Claim

car accident injuries.

Seeing a Doctor

Car accidents notoriously result in slow-developing injuries. Seeking medical attention even if you don't feel it is necessary can protect your health. Doing so also generates key medical records we can use to build your case. Failing to see a doctor may be used to argue you were not really hurt. 

Duplicating Evidence

Photos, videos, and any other potential pieces of evidence are invaluable. Far too often, clients lose these crucial tools when they are only saved on a single device and that device is compromised. You should back up your evidence on multiple devices and email copies to yourself. 

Being Quiet

Under no circumstance should you admit fault in any way for your crash. The safest thing to do is not speak about your accident at all. Even offhand comments can be used against you. If insurance company representatives reach out, direct them to us. Car accident attorneys Reed and Terry will do all the talking.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you or someone you care about has been in a car accident caused by someone else's negligence, there is no better way to get the answers you need than to consult a Houston car accident lawyer. If you haven't reached out to Reed & Terry, LLP yet, you should do so now. Until you can meet with our attorneys, we invite you to explore these answers to questions many car accident victims ask as they begin taking steps to recover their losses.

Can I post about my accident on social media?

We strongly recommend that you don't. Social media is one of the easiest ways to gain insight into the lives of others, and it's important to understand that the other party's insurance company is most likely monitoring your activity on these platforms. These people are looking for any opportunity to absolve their client of as much blame as possible and place the blame on you instead. The things you might say on social media could be used to hurt your claim. The best policy is to keep all discussion of your accident between yourself and your attorney.

I think I might be partially to blame for the accident. Do I still have a claim?

It's possible. Texas operates under the principle of modified comparative negligence, meaning that if you are less than 51% responsible for the accident, you may still be able to collect damages. For example, if the courts determine that you were 30% responsible for an accident, you could still collect 70% of your total losses. An attorney can demonstrate exactly how much responsibility the other driver holds so that you can collect the compensation you need for medical bills and other losses.

I think my car accident was caused by a faulty car part. What should I do?

Get in touch with Reed & Terry, LLP. In some car accidents, the responsible party was nowhere near the scene of the crash itself. Our attorneys can consult with experts to determine if a faulty car part is to blame for your losses, and build a case to hold the designer, manufacturer, or other responsible party accountable.

What if a poorly maintained road was the cause of my car wreck?

Get in touch with Reed & Terry, and our attorneys can determine if the party responsible for maintaining the road is to blame for your accident. As in the case of accidents caused by faulty car parts, crashes resulting from potholes, lack of signage, and other conditions may have been caused by a party who was not actually at the scene. Our firm is prepared to determine who is responsible for your losses and pursue maximum restitution on your behalf.

An insurance adjuster just reached out with a great offer. Should I just take it and skip the legal action?

It's wise to assume that no matter how good an offer like this sounds, it's a lowball. After all, insurance companies are part of a business that has everything to gain by paying you as little as possible. Don't accept any settlement offer until you speak to an attorney with Reed & Terry, LLP. Our Houston car accident lawyers will take a close look at your case to gain an understanding of exactly how much you have lost (and may continue to lose as a result of a compromised ability to work), and won't settle for anything less.
