Car accidents have a number of causes, related to driver conduct, road conditions, weather and the vehicle or vehicles themselves.

If you were injured in a car accident in the Houston area, an attorney at our offices can offer you a free and confidential consultation to discuss the incident and how we can help you. Please, call us today to see how a skilled professional can assist you in seeking justice and fair compensation in the wake of a serious collision.

Following are a few of the leading causes of car accidents throughout the United States:

  • Driver Negligence - when someone does something or fails to do something, and this constitutes a failure to provide proper caution or care in the circumstances, this may be considered negligence. In car accident cases, this may include such conduct as driving while distracted, texting while driving, talking on the phone, speeding, driving drunk or reckless driving.
  • Dangerous Roadways - a poorly maintained or improperly designed road, bridge, intersection or highway may have the potential to cause a serious accident. Lack of proper signage or an improperly posted speed limit may also cause car accidents to occur.
  • Defective Auto Parts - defective or dangerous automobile parts may not only cause an accident to occur but may also contribute to the severity of a collision. Our firm handles cases of this kind that relate to defective seat belts, airbags, brakes, tires, electrical systems, car doors and more.
  • Heavy Weather - weather, such as heavy fog, rain, snow or ice may cause car accidents to occur. The likelihood of an accident in heavy weather is increased in the presence of driver negligence, a dangerous road or defective auto part.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
