Tracey & Fox - tough, Texas attorneys focused on your needs.
This is a very common type of accident. These accidents often happen when a driver is speeding, or following you too close, or has been drinking. Rear-end accidents also often occur because the driver was distracted. He or she may have been talking on the phone, texting or adjusting the radio. Head and neck injuries are often seen in these types of collisions.
Head and neck injuries are often seen in these types of collisions, including whiplash. It’s also important to note that the pain associated with whiplash and neck injuries sometimes take days to appear. You or a loved one may feel sore. That’s normal.
Rear-end collisions are almost always considered to be the fault of the driver that hit you. An insurance company may question the seriousness of your injury and try to convince you to accept a lower offer. The lawyers at Tracey & Fox won’t let that happen. We can fight for the money you rightfully deserve.
While not common, these types of accidents can be extremely dangerous. When one car hits another head-on at high speeds, there can be serious damage and injury. The injuries in this type of collision are often catastrophic or fatal.
A head-on collision can occur when a car crosses the centerline or median and crashes into a car going the other direction. Or a driver may be traveling the wrong direction down a road. The collision may also be related to distracted driving, driving while intoxicated, faulty traffic signals, road construction or excessive speed that leads to loss of control. An experienced attorney can determine if there was negligence and demand the compensation you deserve.
A T-bone accident happens when one car strikes the side of another. These types of collisions are common at intersections but can also occur when a car pulls out of a parking lot or driveway. They are sometimes called right-angle, broadside or side-impact collisions.
In these crashes, a side door is usually smashed in and the glass in the door is shattered. This often results in serious injuries for drivers and passengers. Broken bones, traumatic brain injuries and spinal injuries can all require lengthy and expensive medical treatment. An attorney at our firm can help prove negligence and get financial compensation you need for injuries.
Sometimes, the driver responsible for causing an accident where someone is hurt doesn't stop and just drives away. This is a serious crime in Texas. A driver may fear the consequences because he or she was drinking and driving, or driving with a suspended license. Or they may not have insurance. They can leave behind injured people who are facing a long period of recovery with mounting medical bills.
These cases can be complicated. If you've been injured in a hit-and-run crash and the driver can be identified, the attorneys at Tracey & Fox can help you pursue compensation. If the driver can't be identified, we can help you pursue compensation with your own insurance company.
In Texas, a person on a bicycle has just as much right to use the road as a person in a car. But many motorists don't see it that way, and when they fail to share the road, cyclists can be seriously hurt. Our experienced bicycle accident lawyers know how to handle all of the following accidents:
- Left Cross
- Right Hook
- Rear-End Collision
- No-Contact Accidents
If you were hit or forced off the road by a negligent motorist, our attorneys can help. We'll go to work on your behalf and hold the at-fault driver accountable for the full cost of your accident, including medical expenses, lost wages and other costs. Demand justice. Contact us today for a free consultation.
While people in cars can be seriously injured in wrecks, they at least have the vehicle itself to protect them. The same can't be said for pedestrians. When a car hits a pedestrian's unprotected body, serious or fatal injuries almost always follow.
If you were seriously hurt in a pedestrian accident, don't assume that you will be compensated. You'll be dealing with the insurance company representing the at-fault driver, and their priority is to protect their bottom line, not to help you. Get an experienced Texas pedestrian accident lawyer on your side. We'll help you get back up - and demand the compensation you need and deserve.
There are many factors that can lead to a rollover accident. A driver may swerve suddenly to avoid hitting something in the road. Or the car may hit a curb or guardrail at high speed. The car may have mechanical or tire defects that led to the rollover.
Whenever a car is involved in a rollover accident, people often get seriously hurt. Injuries often seen in rollover accidents include broken bones, traumatic brain injuries and spinal injuries. If you were injured in a rollover accident, you need an experienced attorney to establish negligence and help you get the compensation you are owed.
In Texas, drivers are required to buy insurance with minimum liability limits of $30,000 for each injured person and $60,000 total for injuries per incident. Some drivers are irresponsible and don’t have insurance or let their insurance lapse. Others carry the minimum, but that may not be enough to cover the actual damages in an accident.
You have the option of buying uninsured/underinsured coverage that can help pay the costs of an accident not covered by the other driver’s insurance. If you don’t have this optional insurance and are hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver, getting compensation for your injuries can be difficult. The attorney at Tracey & Fox have years of experience with these cases and can advise you on your legal options.
Distracted driving is driving while engaged in another activity, which takes a driver’s attention away from the road. It is extremely dangerous, and unfortunately, quite common. A driver can become distracted while changing the radio station, talking to a passenger or eating or drinking. One of the biggest causes of distracted driving is texting.
A driver may not think it’s a big deal to glance away from the road for a few seconds to send or respond to a text but a lot can happen in those few seconds, and people can get hurt. If you’ve been injured by a distracted driver, the attorneys at Tracey & Fox can help prove negligence and hold that driver responsible.
It's common to see drivers going over the speed limit every day on Texas roads. Speeding increases the risk of getting into a crash. That's because the faster a car is traveling, the more time is needed to bring it to a complete stop. A driver who travels above the posted speed limit is negligent. When that negligence leads to a car accident where people are hurt, that driver needs to be held responsible.
The injuries in high-speed car accidents can be serious. The faster a car is traveling, the more forceful an impact it will have in a crash. If you or a loved one has been injured by a driver who was speeding, an experienced attorney at our firm can help prove that the driver was going too fast and help you get the compensation you deserve.
Driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs is against the law in Texas, and for good reason. Alcohol and other drugs affect a driver's ability to operate a car safely and make good judgments. Impaired drivers can cause serious accidents that leave people injured and facing a long recovery with mounting medical expenses, as well as lost wages.
Unfortunately, drunk driving accidents are extremely common in Texas. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a drunk or drugged driver, contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. An attorney at our firm can review police reports and interview witnesses to establish that the other driver was under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. Establishing this negligence can help you recover maximum damages for your accident.
Another factor in many accidents is drowsy driving. In some cases, a driver may actually fall asleep at the wheel. Even if that doesn't happen, drowsy driving can be extremely dangerous. Drivers who are operating on little sleep have slower reaction times and impaired judgment. They are a greater risk of causing a crash that leaves people injured or dead.
But drowsy driving can be difficult to prove. That's why it's so important to contact an experienced attorney soon after being involved in an accident. An attorney can gather evidence, review police reports and interview witnesses to prove the other driver was drowsy and should not have been operating a car. When this negligence can be established, an attorney can help you pursue maximum compensation for your injuries.
In some cases, there is a defect in the car that led to an accident. In recent years, there have been recalls of cars related to electrical shorts, transmission problems, air bag injuries and faulty ignition switches. These and other defects can cause a dangerous situation on the road that leads to an accident in which people are seriously hurt.
When people are injured due to negligence by an auto manufacturer, the attorneys at Tracey & Fox take action. We take the time to build a solid case that proves the manufacturer put out a car that included unsafe parts, and we pursue maximum compensation for our clients who were injured by that neglect.
