Houston, TX Car Accident
A car accident can be scary, both for you and for those who depend on you. To make matters worse, insurance companies often take advantage of victims who don’t understand the full financial scope of their situation. This prevents people with injuries from getting the appropriate amount of compensation. That’s where we come in.
At Morgan & Morgan, we fight For The People. We have 30 years of experience under our belt and more than 800 top-tier attorneys on our team, all dedicated to treating our clients like family. Fill out a free case evaluation form to find out if we can help.

Hiring a Lawyer
If you’re injured in a car accident, an auto accident lawyer can ensure that you get the compensation you are owed. In fact, hiring a lawyer can get you three times more than you’d get on your own.
Insurance companies may downplay your injuries so they can pay you less than they should. Fortunately, our attorneys recognize their tactics. We’re not afraid to go to court, so we don’t settle for the last offer unless it’s the full amount you deserve. We have the skills and resources to take on the biggest bullies and win.
Investigating the Incident
Your auto accident attorney will look at your case from all angles to determine the cause of the collision. If you can prove that the defendant did one of the following, you may have the grounds for a lawsuit:
- Drove under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Violated traffic laws
- Drove while distracted
- Did not pay attention to surroundings
- Drove without a valid driver’s license
Your attorney may review police reports and photographs, video footage of the accident, and witness statements to help determine fault. Your lawyer will also look at each party’s driving records. In some cases, the accident may be recreated.
Additionally, they will review your medical reports to determine how you sustained the injury as well as gain insight as to your prognosis and recovery process.
Filing a Claim
A claim is a basis for a lawsuit; it states your injury and damages and the alleged negligence of the defendant, as well as a request for a certain amount of compensation. Since Texas is a “fault” state, you will have to prove that the defendant caused the accident.
The statute of limitations says you have two years from the date of the accident to file a claim. However, if your injuries aren’t clear or you have no symptoms at first, the statute of limitations starts when you notice them. Your case is time-sensitive either way, so don’t wait to contact Morgan & Morgan’s auto accident attorneys.
Car accidents can cause both physical and mental trauma, and the extent of the injuries might not be clear until long after. We thoroughly review your case and consider both short-term and long-term effects of an auto accident. Here are some of the damages that may be claimed:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
Some attorneys will settle for the last offer: not us. We determine the real value of your claim and fight to get you full and fair compensation.
