Katy Car Accident Lawyer
Injured in an auto accident?
The earliest settlement for the Katy area was known as Cane Island in 1872, named for the creek that still runs through the area today. The town of Katy was originally laid out by J.O. Thomas, L.C. Luckel, and R.M. Cash in 1895 and it was named after the MKT Railroad that runs through the city; the city of Katy was officially incorporated in 1945. While Katy has long been a traditional family-oriented community, in the past it played a major role as a rail hub and agricultural center that boasted one of the largest gas fields in this section of the state. Today, BP America is the Energy Corridor's largest employer with over 5,000 employees as of 2009. Whether you live in the City of Katy, or "old Katy," with approximately 15,000 residents, car accidents are a common part of life in the greater Katy area.
