Auto Accident Lawyer | Fighting for Injured Clients in Houston, Texas

Motor vehicle collisions are devastating, and often, those injured need months or years to recover. In the worst cases, some crash victims never fully recover. Unfortunately, serious motor vehicle crashes occur virtually every single day here in Texas. In fact, according to the Texas Department of Transportation, there were over 15,000 serious injury crashes, and in those crashes, over 19,000 people were seriously injured. A “serious injury” is defined as an “incapacitating injury.”

These numbers are harrowing, and if you’re among the injured this year because of someone else’s carelessness, you may feel unsure of where to turn. Our firm is here to help, and if you need a legal team you can depend on, you’re in the right place. Speak with a Harris County, Texas personal injury lawyer from our legal team to learn more about how we can help you through each phase of the personal injury claims process ahead.

Motor Vehicle Crash Cases We Handle

White Personal Injury proudly handles a wide array of injury claims stemming from motor vehicle crashes on behalf of our clients. Just some of the collision cases we take are as follows:

  • Bus Collisions: Bus crashes aren’t the most common type of motor vehicle collision, but they do happen, and in many cases, when they do, several people are harmed as a result. Whether you were hurt as a passenger in a bus crash or you were harmed as the driver of an entirely separate vehicle, you deserve financial compensation, and our legal team is here to help you get it.
  • Car Crashes: Car crashes happen every single day here in the state of Texas. Though many of them, fortunately, do not result in critical injuries, a significant percentage of them do. If you were hurt in a car crash caused by the negligence of another motorist, you most likely have a path to compensation. White Personal Injury has years of experience representing victims of car crashes, and we’re prepared to put that experience to work for you as well.
  • Motorcycle Crashes: Motorcyclists are more vulnerable than others on the road, and when they’re involved in crashes, they’re often severely injured as a result. In fact, though fewer people ride motorcycles than most other types of transportation, the largest portion of motor vehicle fatalities are attributed to motorcyclists. If you or a loved one has been injured as a biker in Texas, you can call on us to give you the legal representation you deserve. We are here to fight for you, every step of the way.
  • Pedestrian Injuries: Collisions occurring between motor vehicles and pedestrians are often one-sided, as the sheer size and weight of a motor vehicle far outclass that of a pedestrian. Because of this, pedestrians harmed at the hands of negligent motorists often suffer debilitating injuries that they cannot recover from without the assistance of a seasoned personal injury legal team. White Personal Injury is here.
  • Delivery Driver Crashes: As you know, the country has grown more reliant than ever on delivery drivers, such as those who work for Amazon, FedEx, and UPS. Because of this massive reliance, delivery drivers are under immense pressure from their employers to make all deliveries on time, and often, this pressure results in mistakes made behind the wheel. If you were struck by a delivery driver and injured, you can depend on us to fight for you.
  • Truck Collisions: Truck drivers are in charge of operating large, high-powered machines that, when involved in collisions, can lead to very serious injuries. 18-wheelers and other commercial vehicles are notorious for causing devastating property damages and injuries, and if you were hurt in a crash involving one, you can turn to White Personal Injury for the legal representation you deserve and need.
  • Uber Crashes: Uber has become an increasingly popular and reliable means of transportation here in Houston, however, Uber crashes are not unheard of. In fact, they happen more often than you may even think. If you were involved in such a crash and injured, you’ll need a lawyer familiar with Uber’s liability system and who has years of experience representing clients in the state of Texas. Look no further, because you’re in the right place.

Satisfying the Burden of Proof

When someone is hurt in an auto crash due to no fault of their own, they’ll need to prove as much to win their personal injury claim. If possible, you should everything in your power to document the facts of the crash. You can do so by taking the following steps:

  1. First, you should call the police. They will write up an accident report and send an ambulance to the scene of the accident. Once an ambulance arrives, they can give you the emergency medical treatment you need on the spot and, from there, transport you to a medical facility for further treatment.
  2. After you call the police, you should get the other driver’s insurance information. You can simply take a picture of the documentation. In the course of your exchange, ensure you do not apologize, as it may get twisted as an admission of guilt.
  3. Take pictures of any damage to your vehicle, the other driver’s vehicle, and the scene of the accident as a whole. Additionally, if you can, try and take pictures of your injuries.
  4. Ask anyone who witnessed the crash for their contact information. Often, witness testimony can prove very useful when filing personal injury claims.
  5. After you receive medical treatment in the hospital, you should ensure you hold onto all copies of medical documentation and bills regarding your injuries. We can use this documentation to prove the extent of the damages you’ve incurred as a result of the crash.
  6. Hire a dedicated Texas auto accident lawyer who can work to gather and present all other evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim. For example, our firm can potentially work to subpoena surveillance footage of your crash, which is one of the most straightforward ways to win a personal injury claim. We can also work alongside certain experts, such as accident reconstructionists, medical professionals, and more.

Compensation for Injuries

Financial compensation can never undo the injuries you’ve sustained, but it can help you on your way to a swift recovery. As long as we can satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, you should receive compensation for the following:

Economic damages, such as lost wages, the cost of medical care, property damage, and more.
Non-economic damages, such as the pain and suffering, emotional anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life you’ve endured as a result of your injury.

As your injury attorneys, our goal is to help you recover the compensation you need to get back on your feet again after a serious auto collision. We will do everything in our power to fight for the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled.

How Much is My Auto Accident Case Worth?

If you’ve been hurt in a car crash due to no fault of your own, you’re most likely wondering how much your case is worth. The truth is, the answer to this question depends on a wide range of variables, including to what degree the other driver is at fault, the extent of the damages you’ve incurred as a result of your accident, and, of course, the level of skill of the individual auto accident lawyer handling your case. Though we cannot guarantee any outcome, we can give you an idea of what we think your case may be worth once we sit down and familiarize ourselves with the specifics of your case.

Will I Have to Go to Court?

In most cases, the answer to this question is “no.” Typically, personal injury cases do not go to court, and are instead settled outside of the courtroom setting during negotiations with insurance companies. That said, insurance companies are notorious for lowballing their settlement offers, so in certain cases where we feel that our clients are being offered inadequate settlements, we are prepared to take their case to trial and fight for the full and fair compensation to which we believe they are entitled. Of course, we will only proceed to trial with the client’s permission, and ultimately, the decision of whether to accept a settlement or to take a case to trial is up to the client.

Filing On Time

Here in Texas, anyone hurt due to negligence will have to file their personal injury claim within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for most injury claims in Texas is two years, which means that in most cases, you will have two years from the date of your injury to take legal action against the party responsible. Though you may wish to wait to see if your injuries heal on their own, this is seldom a good idea–waiting any longer than two years will result in you being permanently time-barred from suing altogether.
