TX accident lawyerSummer has historically been the season with the highest number of traffic accidents, especially with the increased number of vehicles on the road. No matter the season, when compared to city driving, highways are usually safer roads to travel on. However, highways are also where you will usually find most of the nation’s large semi-trucks. We depend on semi-trucks to transport the majority of goods that we use every day across the country, yet these trucks can also be dangerous to other drivers on the road.

The injured person may also be unable to work, take care of his or her children, drive, or complete other responsibilities while he or she is recovering from the injuries. Consequently, the financial burden associated with a serious car accident is often heavy.

If you or a loved one were injured in a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, or pedestrian accident, it is important to explore all of your legal options. A personal injury claim may allow you to recover compensation for the financial burden created by the accident. However, many car insurance companies do not want injured claimants to hire an injury attorney. If you are like many people, you may wonder why.
