Dedicated Representation In Any Type Of Auto Accident
Automobile accidents are caused by a variety of factors, including:
- Distracted driving
- Alcohol and drug intoxication
- Driving on too little sleep
Distracted driving is an especially common cause of rear-end accidents and collisions with motorcycles. With so many vehicles transporting petroleum products on the road, accidents involving large trucks and 18-wheelers are also especially common in our part of Texas. No matter what kind of vehicles the wreck involves, we have the knowledge, resources and experience to handle your case.

Ready To Fight For You
Don’t fight alone. It is almost never a good idea to negotiate with an insurance company yourself. It can be tempting to call them and take the first settlement they offer if you need money. This is a mistake, and there are other ways to get financial help. Remember, the insurance company is a business. Their goal is to make money, and to do that they will try to settle your claim as quickly as possible for the lowest amount possible. To get the compensation you deserve, you need an experienced auto accident attorney who knows how to value a case, stand up to the insurance companies and fight for you.
