Houston Auto Accident Lawyer


Walker Texas Lawyer, is Houston’s auto accident lawyer. He is ready to put 37 years of experience to work for you. Unfortunately, Houston has the most traffic fatalities in the State of Texas. Nearly 83 million miles are traveled over state highways on a daily basis. This is by Texans in Harris County alone. Add in the additional commuters from the surrounding counties and the Houston area becomes one of the largest traffic centers. This according to the Houston Chronicle.

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, you may be entitled to compensation. This is compensation for damage to property, repair or replacement of the vehicle, medical bills, pain and suffering. Additionally, lost wages and disfigurement or permanent injury compensation could occur. Claims adjusters and insurers have a separate set of procedures for claims. They have a procedure for claims by individuals not represented by an attorney. There is a different one for claims in which the victim has legal representation.

Causes Of Auto Accidents

Accidents are something we all hope to not have. However, any time someone drives carelessly or recklessly, an accident can occur. Around 28 percent of traffic fatalities occur because a driver was driving under the influence (DUI).

Commonly, auto accidents occur due to a driver failing to pay attention to the road. Also speeding, disobeying traffic law, or distractions by texting or phone calls cause collisions. Vehicles may be involved in a single-vehicle accident, as well as with other automobiles, motorcycles, trucks, bicycles, or pedestrians. Some of the car accident injury claims we can assist with include:

What Can I Be Compensated For In A Auto Accident?

In Texas, the injured victim that brings about the lawsuit bears the burden of proof. In cases, your Personal Injury Attorney must prove the responsibility of who caused the accident. A Texas jury will then determine the legal damages awarded in an injury or wrongful death accident. If you are dealing with insurance companies, you will want a personal injury lawyer to represent you. Insurance companies are not in the business of paying money out. They will try to give you as little money as possible. You want an experienced personal injury lawyer to get you the largest compensation you deserve.

Legal damages for auto accidents in Houston include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Mental Anguish

A skilled attorney will look to use the following in personal injury claims:

  • Medical records documenting treatment and injuries
  • Lost wage calculations from employers
  • Medical bills showing the cost of necessary care caused by the crash
  • Medical professionals’ testimony about the injuries caused by the negligence of the other driver
  • Doctor testimony regarding diagnosis, prognosis, and the cause of the injuries sustained in the car crash.
  • Lifecare planners for those with catastrophic injuries requiring medical damages for a lifetime
  • Friends and family members who may testify about the impact of the traffic accident on their loved one or friend

Should I hire a lawyer after a car accident?

Many believe they can save on attorney’s fees and handle their accident claim on their own. However, often they find out they are unable to settle for a reasonable amount. Also, they tend to find out about more issues that occurred due to the accident after their settlement. This outcome tends to happen due to miss steps or actions that hurt their case.

Not every accident requires an attorney. Yet, you should know that insurance companies are not out to pay fair compensation. They are out to save money. That’s why you should seek out a consultation before discussing the claim with the adverse insurance adjuster. The general rule is, the more serious your injury, the more likely it is you will need an attorney to represent you.

Minor claims can be handled by an individual. However, a lawsuit is a different matter altogether. I would not recommend for anyone not in the legal profession to handle their own case. The requirements of a personal injury lawsuit are much too complex for nonlawyers.

Walker's personal touch is unmatched. I never have to worry about calling the office and not reaching anyone, because I always do. More times than not, a lawyer is something you need more than something you want. With that said, I feel secure with Walker in my corner and I never have to question if he and his staff have my back. He's a great person to have on your side during difficult times. I refer all my friends and family to him.

Not only does he put his full heart into everything that he does but he also fights very hard for the right cause and gets you what you deserve. He fights hard and tough but also stays extremely honest and so very kind to all of his clients. I've never met anyone in my life, a more motivated, strategic, go-getter lawyer than Walker. He changed my whole world with what he did for my family. We would have never been able to get the justice that was needed without him. I could never in my life thank him enough for what he did for my family. If you want someone strong willed, a fighter, and someone that goes above and beyond for justice and his clients...then you have found the right Law firm. I wish I could give a million stars cause 5 just isn't enough. If you need to ask me about my experience personally feel free to message me. He never gave up on me....and I thank him beyond words.-Bri
