Spring Car Accident Attorney
Always Pursuing Maximum Financial Compensation
Spring, Texas is located 20 miles north of downtown Houston, with a population of 54,298 according to the 2010 census. While Spring refers to a large portion of northern Harris County and a small section of southern Montgomery County, the original town of Spring is known by locals and tourists as Old Town Spring. Old Town Spring is located near the original rail yards that were built around the turn of the century by the Great Northern Railroad, and walking through Old Town Spring is compared to stepping back in time. Some of the town's local shops age back to the early 1900's when the town was a booming railroad town. Whether you're a local or a tourist visiting one of the town's art galleries or the annual SpringFest Wine & Art Festival, many of locals and visitors alike are involved in auto accidents each and every day in the area.
Were you or someone you care for recently injured in an auto accident? Whether the accident involved a driver who was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, a distracted driver that was
texting while driving, or someone that was speeding, you deserve ample compensation for any property damage sustained, and more importantly, for any injuries sustained. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, in 2011 there were 32,367 fatalities as a result of motor vehicle collisions and millions more sought treatment in our nation's emergency rooms. Of those fatalities, 9,878 of them were alcohol-related, which accounted for 31% of all fatalities, the same percentage of overall fatalities as in 2010. (NHTSA)
The NHTSA reports that in 2010 Texas had a total of 3,023 fatalities from auto accidents, of which 42% were alcohol-related. The U.S. Department of Transportation is the nation's leader when it comes to banning texting while driving, and according to the NHTSA, in 2010 alone; more than 3,000 people were killed in distracted driving crashes. What is distracted driving? It refers to any activity that takes the driver's eyes off the road (visual), their hands off the wheel (manual), or their mind off the task of driving (cognitive). Common forms of distracted driving include:
- Texting while driving
- Cellular phone use (including hands free devices)
- Eating while driving
- Operating a navigational system, the radio, or a DVD or CD player
- Reading while driving
- Handling children in the rear of the vehicle
The majority of auto accidents are caused by driver negligence or driver recklessness more than any other factor, and the three common denominators in car accidents include speeding, drunk driving, and distracted driving. What does this all mean to you? This means the majority of car accidents are entirely preventable and could have been avoided altogether if the driver was executing more caution and care.
It's upsetting to have your whole life turned upside-down because of someone else's negligence; however, it becomes even worse when you encounter an insurance company that is not only unsympathetic to your predicament, but that actually attempts to drastically devalue your claim.
