Car Wrecks / Auto Accidents
Houston has some of the most hazardous roads in the country. Since it’s an epicenter of several different highway systems, the large number of drivers and cars on the road daily leads to numerous accidents. If you have been a victim of a car wreck, our lawyers will fight to ensure that the negligent driver and insurance companies compensate you for your claim fairly.
Most of Houston is not known for being very pedestrian-friendly. With many roadways providing hazards to pedestrians and drivers treating crosswalks and sidewalks as an optional suggestion, negligence has resulted in many pedestrians being injured or killed.
In addition to distracted drivers, the majority of pedestrian accidents throughout the Houston area occur due to lack of adequate sidewalks, crosswalks and lighting.
When rollovers are caused by other drivers recklessly operating their vehicle, victims have every right to hold them accountable for their behavior and pursue legal action. We can help you pursue compensation, whether your injuries are due an accident caused by a reckless driver, drunk driver or other types of driver errors.
Additionally, if rollovers are caused by road defects where construction companies are at fault or because of auto defects caused by design flaws or manufacturing defects, Laviage Law can help you determine who may be held accountable for your accident.
Serious and sometimes deadly accidents can occur when drivers are unable to safely control their vehicles due to high rates of speed – leaving victims to deal with debilitating injuries including brain trauma, back injuries, paralysis and broken bones or fractures, as well as extensive medical bills and lost wages.
If you have been involved in a speeding accident due to a reckless driver, our lawyers will hold the responsible parties accountable for their dangerous actions.
In 2015, there were nearly 24,000 total crashes involving a semi-trailer throughout the state, as well as more than 185,000 total crashes involving a pickup truck. Truck accidents can be due to a number of factors including driver fatigue, distraction, weather or jack-knifing due to taking a turn too sharply at a high speed.
Accidents due to trucks can be severe and result in complete disruption of your life, suffering and extensive hospital stays or rehabilitation due to serious injuries. Let us work with you to ensure you receive compensation to cover your medical expenses and lost wages from the responsible party.
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, there were more than 8,100 total motorcycle crashes throughout the state in 2015, 453 of those resulting in fatalities. Compared to other vehicle accidents, motorcyclists are more likely to be seriously injured and have a higher chance of death since there is very little protection between them and the roads.
Our attorneys know how dangerous Houston highways can become for motorcyclists and will make sure you’re compensated for your injuries.
Road defects can cause serious injuries and even death. Though federal law mandates that cities, towns and counties must maintain roadways, it can be difficult to keep roads safe. Whether it’s damaged or missing guardrails, improperly salted icy bridges or roads, potholes or uneven shoulders, accidents caused by road defects can severely injury you or damage your vehicle.
When negligent parties are at fault, our lawyers will help you receive the compensation you need so you can recover without worrying about medical bills and damages.
Drunk Driving Accidents
Pairing alcohol with a heavy powerful motor vehicle can have deadly results or cause serious long-term injuries for the drunk driver, passengers or innocent bystanders. The injured party could be subject to brain and head trauma, spinal cord injuries, paralysis and broken bones – causing physical, emotional and financial difficulties.
Once you get behind the wheel and drive with a BAC at illegal levels, alcohol can affect one’s motor skills or mental capacity, causing an increased reaction time, lack of coordination, drowsiness, lack of focus, impaired vision or irrational and impulsive decisions.
If you or a loved one has been a victim in a drunk driving accident, you may be entitled to compensation and justice for any injuries or wrongful death that may have occurred.
Our attorneys are experienced in working with families that have lost a loved one. The loss of companionship and financial support of a family member is a devastating event.
We understand that this is a difficult situation and requires utmost care. Receive a no-cost consultation for this tragic event, and we’ll guide you through the intricacies of wrongful death claims.
Houston Traffic Incidents
According to the Texas Department of Transportation’s annual report for 2015, some of the top contributing factors for serious accidents includes speeding, driver distraction, driving under the influence and failure to drive in a single lane.
In 2015 alone, there were more than 66,000 crashes in Houston. Of those, 191 were fatal and resulted in 203 fatalities. Additionally, 1,100 of all crashes in 2015 caused more than 1,300 incapacitating injuries, often requiring extensive medical procedures, prolonged hospital stays and even lifelong disabilities – all of which can be quite expensive.
