Reed & Terry represented me 6 years ago as a result of a car accident. Noticed a lien on my property from the hospital. Called and spoke with Marta. (She was actually paralegal who assisted me at the time). Was always kind and caring. She stopped what she was doing and immediately researched my case. Sent me the letter, copy of check that was paid to hospital. Someone at hospital didn't do their job and remove lien. Marta, you are awesome!! I would recommend this firm to anyone needing an excellent personal injury attorney. Thanks again.View on Google

What to Do After an Accident
If you got into a car crash, there are a few key things that you should do to help bolster your accident and injury claim.
Document the Crash
Take photos and video of the collision and location. Be sure to get contact information from the other driver and any witnesses. Speak to the authorities so a police report can be filed.
Seek Medical Help
Not all injuries are immediately apparent. Be sure to see a doctor after your crash to check for any signs or symptoms of whiplash, brain injury or soft tissue injuries.
Avoid Discussions With the Insurance Company
Insurance companies always try to minimize compensation following a crash. Avoid speaking with insurance representatives and settling too quickly.
Contact an Attorney
Discussing your case with a car accident attorney can help you understand the value of your claim and if the other driver or another party can be held liable for the accident.

How Often Do Car Accidents
Happen in Texas?
According to Data From 2020:
An auto accident occurs every 67 seconds.
Someone is injured in an auto accident every 154 seconds.
Someone is killed in an auto accident every 135 minutes.
A single-vehicle collision refers to crashes in which just one automobile is involved. These kinds of crashes can happen on all types of roads, from the Katy Freeway to suburban streets.
While only one vehicle is involved in the crash, that does not necessarily mean the driver of that vehicle is responsible for the collision. A vehicle may have swerved to avoid a reckless driver, or lost traction due to poor road conditions. A number of vehicle and auto part defects could have also contributed to the crash.
During a consultation with our car accident lawyers, we can go over the details of your single-car accident and identify negligence that contributed to the collision.
When multiple vehicles are involved in a crash, determining fault can be difficult. A single vehicle could set off a chain reaction, affecting multiple automobiles in the process. The auto accident attorneys at Reed & Terry, LLP can consult our network to assess the cause(s) of a multi-vehicle collision and determine the party or parties who should be held liable.

Drinking and Driving Claims
Numerous Lives Each Year
In 2020, 963 people were killed and 2,114 people were seriously injured in Texas drunk driving accidents.
Based on those numbers, someone was killed in an alcohol-related crash every 9 hours and 6 minutes.
Drunk Driving Accidents
When a driver operates a vehicle while intoxicated, they put their own life and the lives of others at risk. If a drunk driver caused an accident with you or a loved one, it's important they be held accountable for their reckless decision.
The personal injury lawyers of Reed & Terry, LLP can help negotiate a favorable settlement or obtain compensation that covers medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and other crash-related losses. In some cases, punitive damages may be sought from the other driver if their actions were particularly egregious.
Distractions on the Road Can Be Deadly
In 2020, distracted drivers caused almost 1 in 5 traffic accidents in Texas.
Distracted driving caused 367 deaths and 2,205 serious injuries.
Auto Collisions with
Distracted drivers are commonplace on the road. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), distracted driving is any behavior that diverts a driver's attention from the road. Examples of distracted driving include:
- Texting while driving
- Talking on a cellphone
- Eating while driving
- Grooming while driving
Distracted motorists can be held accountable for their negligence if their actions lead to a car accident.
Negligent drivers aren't the only parties responsible for motor vehicle accidents. Automakers and manufacturers of auto parts can also be held accountable for their defective products.
Defective Parts and
We expect auto manufacturers and the makers of auto parts to create safe, properly tested products before they reach the market. Flaws in design, manufacturing, storage or distribution could result in dangerous or even deadly defects.
A poorly designed or manufactured vehicle may be prone to rolling over or may not have properly installed safety systems. Defective auto parts can take many forms, including faulty tires and unresponsive brake systems and steering system components.
Accident victims can count on the team at Reed & Terry, LLP to offer assistance in product liability lawsuits involving auto companies. Our lawyers can hold companies accountable when their actions put consumers at risk.

Car Accident FAQ
What should I do after a hit-and-run accident?
If you were in a hit-and-run accident, our personal injury attorneys advise you to ensure everyone in your vehicle is okay. After calling the police about the hit-and-run, try your best to write down everything you remember about the crash, including the make and model of the vehicle that struck yours, the license plate number, the appearance of the driver and any eyewitness statements. Any information you have will help authorities track down the driver.
What if I am partly at fault for a collision?
Partial responsibility could play a role when seeking legal damages in an auto accident claim. The state of Texas uses a form of comparative negligence known as "proportionate responsibility." Under this statute of proportionate responsibility, an accident victim cannot collect any damages from the other party if the victim is more than 50% responsible for the crash.
Can passengers sue drivers for car accident injuries?
Yes. A passenger can file a lawsuit against a driver for their injuries. This applies to the driver of an Uber, Lyft or taxi as well as drivers of non-commercial vehicles. In fact, a passenger could file an injury claim against the driver of the vehicle they were in as well as the driver of other vehicles involved.
What if I was in an accident with a driver who fell asleep behind the wheel?
Driver fatigue is a serious issue, and puts numerous lives at risk. If a driver falls asleep behind the wheel, they can be held legally liable for the property damage and injuries that they cause. Keep in mind that drowsy driving is rather common. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 25 adults admit that they've fallen asleep behind the wheel in the last 30 days.
