Auto Accident Injury Rates in Houston

T-bone wrecks. Head-on collisions. Sideswipe hits.

Running red lights. Speeding through intersections. Changing lanes at high speed.

A recent study that examined collision data from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) showed that Houston has the highest number of dangerous intersections of any city in Texas. The report looked at accident data from 2012 to 2015, and showed that Houston had more intersections with accidents than San Antonio, Dallas, and Plano combined.

Accidents at intersection can be as dangerous as any freeway collision. In the case of one Houston intersection, the TxDOT report showed 335 accidents, resulting in 263 injuries, in just three years. That’s an average of nine accidents and seven injuries per month at just one intersection!

With these statistics in mind, the odds that you will need to work with a Houston auto accident injury law firm are quite high. Whether an accident occurs at an intersection, on a busy freeway, or on a quiet side street, the effects can be catastrophic for a family.

The Accident Is Over. The Battle Is Just Beginning

Ambulances. Emergency rooms. Surgical suites. Hospital beds.

Office visits. Prescription medications. Physical therapy.

After the initial shock of the accident fades, the reality sets in. The paramedics check out your injuries before loading you into the ambulance. The sirens wail as they transport you to the emergency room. Doctors and nurses examine your injuries to determine if you need immediate surgery.

If so, the nurses prepare you for surgery. The anesthesiologist administers the drugs that will keep you asleep through the procedure. You wake up in a hospital bed, your life changed forever from just a few moments earlier.

As you lay awake in the hospital, one question comes to mind: How am I going to pay for all of this? That’s where the auto accident injury attorneys at Simon & O’Rourke P.C., can help. We work with auto accident victims to get them the compensation they deserve for their injuries.

On top of all that, you could face severe financial difficulties. You may be forced to stay home as you recover, which means that you can’t get the income you need to pay your regular monthly expenses, never mind the thousands of dollars in medical bills that you’ve accrued since the accident.

Why You Need An Auto Accident Injury Attorney

Insurance carriers. High-priced attorneys. Lowball offers.

When you’re facing the financial burdens that come after an accident, you may be tempted to grasp any potential lifeline you can find. Insurance companies count on that desperation, which is why they may offer you pennies on the dollar for your injury claim.

Remember, insurance companies are in business to make profits for their shareholders, not to pay high amounts for injury claims. One of the best ways that insurance carriers can maintain their profits is to make lowball offers on serious claims, in the hopes that the claimant will accept them and go away.

If a claimant decides to contest the carrier’s decision, the carrier can then turn to their team of high-priced attorneys to defend their stance. These attorneys have a wealth of resources on hand, all ready to make it as inconvenient and costly for a claimant as possible.

The attorneys at Simon & O’Rourke Law Firm P.C., have the skills and expertise to match these top-dollar lawyers, but we choose to fight on your side. Also, we work on a contingency basis, which means that we don’t get paid unless we win money for you.

If you have been injured in an auto accident, you’ll need the advice of an expert car accident injury lawyer in Houston. Simon & O’Rourke Law Firm P.C., has the expertise to win your case, the dedication to help you through your hard times, and the courtroom skills to get you the highest level of compensation possible.

When you are injured in an accident, the pain can often be more than physical. In addition to the physical strain, accident victims must endure mental strain, emotional duress, and family issues.

One of the biggest sources of this stress is the loss of financial stability. Physician office visits, hospital stays, surgical procedures, and prescription medications are all a drain on a family’s finances under the best of circumstances. When you combine these factors with the loss of a steady income and disputes with insurance carriers, the stress can become overwhelming.

In times like these, you need the help of an experienced professional who is committed to seeing that you get the security you need to get your life back to normal. The attorneys at Simon O’Rourke Law Firm P.C., have the experience you need to get the compensation you deserve, as well as the commitment to client service you expect from a personal injury law firm.

Our firm has extensive experience in a wide array of personal injury cases. Some of these cases include:

Auto Accidents. Vehicular accidents are among the most devastating, and most expensive, types of injury accidents. The sudden, shocking impact of a car wreck can leave a family in ruins.

When this happens to you, an aggressive personal injury attorney can be a tremendous ally. Simon O’Rourke Law Firm P.C., has worked through numerous auto accident cases, so we know how to help victims get back on their feet.

Burn Injuries. The pain from burns can be among the most intense that a human body can endure. For victims of severe burns, the pain can last long after the physical damage heals. Scar tissue, loss of sensation, and skin damage can limit a burn victim’s ability to get a job, earn a living, or have a social life.

Skin graft surgeries, physical therapy, and prescription pain medications can also take a toll on the burn victim’s financial health. The Simon O’Rourke Law Firm P.C., works with burn victims to get them the compensation they need during the healing process.

Medical Malpractice. Patients trust doctors, nurses, and medical technicians with the most valuable component of their lives: their health and that of their family. When these highly-trained professionals fail to live up to their responsibilities, either through simple errors or insidious greed, the results can affect patients and their families for the rest of their lives.

Medical professionals need to be held to a high standard of professional conduct. When they do not live up to those standards, they need to be held accountable for the damage they cause. The attorneys and staff at Simon O’Rourke Law Firm P.C., work with patients and their families whose lives have been affected by medical malpractice to ensure that they are compensated by those whose mistakes led to their injuries.

Premises Liability. According to Texas law, a property owner has the duty to keep his or her property in a safe condition. When a person using or visiting the property is injured due to unsafe conditions on that property, the injured person can pursue a premises liability lawsuit against the property owner. For instance, injuries caused by broken sidewalks, slick floors, or other such hazards can be used as the grounds for a premises liability lawsuit.

Premises liability law is among the most complicated and intricate forms of personal injury law. The attorneys and staff at Simon O’Rourke Law Firm P.C, understand these complexities and have won numerous such cases for our clients. Our mission is to hold property owners to the highest legal standards and to get the most compensation that we can for our injured clients.

Traumatic Brain Injury. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when the brain impacts inside the skull and causes damage. These injuries often occur as the the result of blunt force trauma to the skull, such as in a car accident or a collision on the athletic field. Symptoms can range from memory loss to blurred vision to emotional instability.

These injuries can limit a victim’s ability to work, drive, or function on their own. In these cases, a personal injury lawyer can help them get the justice they deserve for their injuries. Simon O’Rourke Law Firm P.C., understands the unique needs of TBI victims and will endeavor to get them the financial stability they need to seek treatment and attempt to lead normal lives.

Workplace Injuries. Thousands of Texans work on construction sites, in oil refineries, and in industrial shops every day. Many of these workers also suffer serious injuries on the job every year. These injuries, combined with the loss of income, can leave families in a state of financial panic.

These workers are also not equipped to take on their employers, the company’s insurance providers, and the attorneys for those providers. When an employee is injured, these forces have a single mission: pay out as little as possible. At Simon O’Rourke Law Firm P.C., we have the experience, the aggression, and the skills you need to get as much as the law allows for your workplace injuries.

Wrongful Death. The loss of a loved one is among the worst experiences a family can endure. When that loved one is also the family’s primary source of income, the effects on the family’s finances can be catastrophic. When that loss comes as the result of another party’s negligence, the family has every right to demand justice.

The attorneys at Simon O’Rourke Law Firm P.C., have helped dozens of families with their wrongful death lawsuits. We recognize the devastating effects that these situations can have on a family, so we strive to be responsive to the family’s needs. Our veteran attorneys will work tirelessly on getting families the financial terms they deserve, as well as punitive damages for those responsible for the family’s loss.

If you or a loved one have suffered a serious injury due to another person’s actions or negligence, you need to talk to a personal injury attorney. The attorneys at Simon O’Rourke Law Firm P.C. can help you protect your rights and work toward getting you the compensation you deserve.
