Houston Car Accident Lawyer
Our Law Firm Knows Auto Accidents
Harris County, Texas has 4.3 million residents, while the Houston metro area has approximately 6.3 million. This definitely explains why the Houston metro area has approximately 200 auto accidents each day, or roughly 73,000 car crashes a year. There are many types of vehicle accidents, the most common being: rear-ended, T-bone or broad-sided, head-on, and side-swiped.
Common Causes of Automobile Accidents
While there are many causes of car accidents, the most common reasons of driver negligence are identified as follows: driver inattention; speeding; texting and driving; cell phone use; fatigue; failure to yield the right of way from a stop sign or private drive; running a red light; and driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Again, these are just the most common reasons. Since every case is different, we urge you call one of our injury lawyers so we can discuss the facts of your case.

Having represented victims of auto accidents in Texas for more than 21 years, we know what questions or concerns you may have, and we know how to obtain compensation for your injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage.

In addition to obtaining the crash report and creating a claim, our injury attorneys will also secure accident photos, interview any witnesses, and consult with an expert accident reconstructionist as necessary.

No Problem! Call Us Now!
What if the police did not investigate or did not complete a report? Don’t worry. Our law office has successfully represented many clients involved in car accidents when a police report was not filed. But it is important that you contact us right away, because time is not on your side. By allowing our personal injury attorneys to establish and build your case, you can then focus on your medical care and recovery. Our relationships with medical doctors, imaging facilities, physical therapists, psychologists, chiropractors, orthopedic surgeons, dentists, and plastic surgeons allow us to assist you in finding medical care convenient to your location. Of equal importance, our office can also arrange for medical care without having to use health insurance, Medicare or Medicaid, and without your having to pay any up-front money.
We Have the Answers to Your Urgent Questions
The two most common questions we receive are: “What is my case worth?” and, “How long does the process take?” Answers on the value of your case can be seen here. As for the length of time, that in large part depends upon the severity of your injuries and length of your medical care. Cases involving soft tissue injuries like whiplash, for example, tend to wrap up sooner than cases involving surgery, paralysis, amputation, and other injuries causing permanent disability.
After completing your medical care, our attorneys will then obtain all of your medical bills and records for presentation to the insurance company with a demand that contains a list of your damages, including medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. In most instances, after a series of negotiations with the insurance adjuster, your case will settle. However, in those cases where settlement cannot be reached, then a lawsuit can be filed in the court system, taking your case to a different level.
What Can You Expect to Happen?
While most automobile accident cases settle without ever having to file a lawsuit, there are those cases where a lawsuit may need to be filed immediately to secure evidence or because of the serious nature of the injuries involved. Regardless of the circumstances of your case, you can feel confident that the Houston law firm of Joel A. Gordon & Associates understands what it takes to make your car accident case successful.
