Friendswood Car Accident Lawyer
Serving the Residents of Friendswood
The city of Friendswood was once covered with sprawling fig and orange orchards. It wasn't until the 1950's when families began moving from Houston to Friendswood, where growth continued to expand the city nonstop through the 1970's and 1980's. Since then, the city's population has grown considerably, with a population over 36,000 these days. Friendswood encompasses parts of northern Galveston and southern Harris County, which are divided by Clear Creek. Located halfway between Houston and Galveston, Friendswood is made up of 21 square miles of which 70% has been developed. Whether you're a resident of Friendswood or passing through on your way to Houston or the beach at Galveston, it's not uncommon to be involved in an auto accident while driving in town.

Motor Vehicle Accidents: Areas of Practice
Motor vehicle accidents can involve pedestrians, motorcycles,
semi trucks or big rigs, or even
public transportation vehicles. Whether you've been involved in a
drunk driving accident, or a
teenage driver accident, or an
uninsured motorist accident, we can help you file a claim for compensation in each of these scenarios.
Car accidents are no laughing matter, for they almost always involve a negligent driver who failed to drive safely or responsibly for one reason or another. Whether that person fell asleep at the wheel, or was texting while driving, or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, they need to be held accountable for their actions. In most cases speeding, driver distraction or alcohol are the real culprit behind most accident claims. For this reason, auto accident victims deserve to be compensated for all of their economic and non-economic damages; however, without a qualified attorney standing by your side, the insurance company will attempt to drastically devalue your claim which can ultimately cost you thousands out of pocket when your losses are insufficiently covered.
Fortunately, the vast majority of our clients' claims never make it to court; however, in certain cases it is necessary to enlist accident reconstruction experts and other experts in order to clearly explain the full impact of our client's losses. While we usually settle outside of court, we are completely prepared and willing to take a case to trial if the insurance company is failing to accept full responsibility for a claim. As an injured person, it's important for you to know that your attorney is not only well qualified, but willing to go all the way to trial if a jury verdict is what your particular case requires. We understand the full consequences of a serious injury crash and we want to see to it that all of your needs are comfortably met and you are not forced to shoulder the costs of the accident.
If you were recently involved in an accident, we urge you to contact a Friendswood car accident attorney from our firm at your earliest convenience. The days immediately following an accident are crucial for gathering eyewitness testimony and other supporting evidence. There is a statute of limitations with personal injury claims; therefore, it's critical to get moving on an accident claim sooner than later. To file a claim for compensation in your auto accident claim, contact our office today!
