Rear-End Accidents In Houston
Our Houston attorneys know how to win
Rear-end accidents are the most common car crashes in Houston. They tend to happen when drivers are speeding, tailgating, driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, or driving while distracted. They can occur at both high and low speeds. But even in a low-speed rear-end crash, serious injuries can be sustained.
In stop-and-go traffic during Houston’s rush hour, a rear-end accident could happen in an instant. You could be rear-ended while sitting in traffic on Westheimer, or while stopped at a traffic light on Richmond Ave. The injuries you sustain as a result of someone else’s negligence can wreak havoc on your life, leaving you out of work for weeks or months. That’s why you need an experienced Houston car accident lawyer from Tracey & Fox on your side.
We’ll help you recover
One common injury sustained in a rear-end accident is whiplash. This occurs when the accident victim’s head jerks forward and backward in a rapid motion, causing damage to the neck and spine. Symptoms of whiplash may not occur for days, but if untreated, the damage can be permanent. Insurance companies – including your own – will go to great lengths to downplay your injuries and deny your claim. They may even offer you a small, “lowball” settlement that won’t cover anywhere near the total cost of your medical bills and loss of wages.
That’s why you should never wait to take your claim seriously. If you have been rear-ended by another vehicle In Houston, seek medical attention immediately. Never speak to the other driver’s insurance company. Anything you say to them can hurt your claim. Let our experienced attorneys handle it. If the insurance companies have any questions, they can be redirected to one of our highly skilled car accident lawyers.
We’ll get results so you can focus on recovery
The other motorist’s insurance company will do anything to avoid compensating your personal injury losses. But Tracey & Fox will negotiate with them – and if they refuse to pay, we’ll have no problem taking the case to trial and holding them accountable.
