Common Causes of Car Accidents

There are a number of factors that can contribute to an individual becoming distracted while driving, thus leading to a car accident and injuries. In fact, one of the leading causes of car accidents is driver error. When an individual tries to do too many things while driving, or becomes easily distracted, they are not only putting themselves at risk—they are also threatening the lives of others around them.

Car accidents may be the result of an individual who chooses to drive while:

  • Under the influence of alcohol and / or drugs
  • Texting or talking on the phone
  • Failing to adhere to traffic signals, stops, or speed limits
  • Disregarding weather or traffic conditions
  • Fatigued

In addition to driver error, a car accident can be the result of roads that are not properly maintained. Weather conditions can also lead to car accidents, due to slippery roads or impaired visibility. Mechanical issues such as a poor brake systems or insufficient tires can also cause car accidents. Whether the accident was caused by the negligence of another or a poorly maintained road, you can rest-assured that we have the experience and skills needed to take on even the toughest cases.

We can fight the insurance companies!

Oftentimes, insurance companies will do everything they can to get an injury victim to settle for an amount of compensation that is far less than what they deserve. With 35+ years of experience and an in-depth understanding of personal injury law, we are familiar with the actions to take to prevent this from happening to our clients.

Our founder is certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Personal Injury Trial Law. This means that if a case must be taken to court, we will not hesitate to litigate against an insurance company in order to protect our client.

We recognize that our clients are already feeling stressed about paying for medical bills, rehabilitation, auto repair, lost wages, and more. This is why our firm runs on a contingency fee basis— clients do not owe us anything unless we are able to help them recover compensation. Give our Friendswood personal injury firm a call to get started on your car accident claim.

We offer potential clients free initial case evaluations, so schedule yours today!
