Automobile Accidents

Automobile Accidents

In Houston and throughout the United States, automobile accidents are the most frequent type of personal injury claims. These accidents are often preventable and result from drivers not paying attention to their surroundings. Unfortunately, they can also result in serious, life-changing consequences for the injured parties, including:

  • Head and brain injuries
  • Traumatic lifelong disabilities such as paraplegia, quadriplegia and amputation
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal injuries or herniated disks
  • Internal injuries
  • Wrongful death

 

Economic damages from an accident can be serious as well, and include both medical expenses and lost wages as the result of being unable to work.

Automobile accidents can result from many different factors, such as:

  • Driving While Intoxicated (drunk drivers)
  • Distracted driving (Texting/emailing/talking on the phone while driving)
  • Street-racing or aggressive driving
  • Failing to maintain vehicle
  • Running a red-light or stop sign
  • Following too closely
  • Failing to control speed
  • Driving while tired or while experiencing side-effects of prescription medications

The term "automobile accident" is really incorrect. They are not accidental.  Accident implies that no one is at fault or that the wreck happened without the negligence of the other driver. In most wrecks this is simply not true. Even the official Texas Police Report is called a "Crash Report" because most car and truck wrecks are caused by the willful or negligent act of a driver. For clients of Brann Sullivan we will doggedly pursue these negligent drivers and their insurance companies for you to get you the financial compensation that you deserve.
