Houston, TX Car Accident Lawyers

On May 25, 2020, a truck with a man, woman and baby flew off the North Freeway after it was involved in a crash involving street racers.  Police said the incident happened on northbound 45 and Little York at around 10:30 p.m.

According to one witness, two cars were drag racing, weaving in and out of traffic, clipping three vehicles during the process.  Police reported three cars were involved in the wreck with one coming over the top of the overpass and smashing onto the feeder road below.

No one expects to be in a car accident, but you can't control what's around you.  Bad weather, bad road conditions, vehicle malfunctions and the careless acts of others, such as street racers, cause accidents every day in the Houston area.  If you're involved in a car accident, do the following:

  • Call the police to report the accident and any injuries

  • Stay at the scene until police arrive

  • Get the names, addresses, telephone numbers and driver's license numbers from all drivers and any witnesses.  Don't assume the police will gather this information for you.  Often times, investigating officers will fail to identify eyewitnesses to an accident

  • Exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver

  • Use your cell phone to take photographs of the property damage, accident scene and surrounding area.  For example, if the accident happened in a construction zone, signs directing traffic flow may be critical in your claim

  • Get medical attention.  If you don't require immediate emergency medical treatment, at least call your primary care physician.  Insurance companies will argue your injuries were not serious enough or unrelated to the accident if you did not report your injuries immediately after the accident.

  • Contact an experienced Houston car crash lawyer to help you.  Insurance companies are not on your side.  Don't give them the ammunition to deny your claim for financial compensation.
