Car Accidents: Crashing Into Your Life
Car accidents, at best they are stressful and a financial encumbrance, at worst—they kill. According to estimates released by the National Safety Council, in 2018, approximately 40,000 people lost their lives to car crashes, slightly down from 2017’s 40,231 deaths, and 2016’s 40,327 deaths, with millions of non-fatal injuries occurring annually. It’s clear that driving is dangerous, and for that matter, simply riding is dangerous as well.
Every day America wakes up to a new day of incredible possibilities. Americans are a hopeful people and we arise with expectations that, today… will be a great day! At least we strive to be that optimistic. No one has ever risen from bed, put their feet on the floor, and stood up to declare, “Today… I shall have an auto accident, yes… excellent!” before heading off to shower, brush teeth, and have coffee and toast. Nope, that has never happened. We greet the day with hope, not despair, but the reality is, accidents happen.
Our cities and towns all across America are bustling with activity—commerce, life, it’s in action. And with millions of people working, moving, getting the day done, it’s a foregone conclusion that car accidents are going to occur, and often. There may come a day when all cars are flawlessly driven by computers that never make a mistake, but that day has not yet arrived, and maybe it never will. Today, for the most part, we are driving ourselves, and that means some, unfortunately, are driving half asleep; driving while texting, talking, reaching in the back seat for a doughnut; and some are even driving drunk.
When car accidents happen, or truck/motorcycle/any vehicle accidents happen, you simply cannot afford to go it alone. You need a car accident attorney in Houston, TX who is well traveled on this particular legal road. In an instant, a car accident can change everything and crash into your life, wreaking havoc. If you’re fortunate, you’ll survive the accident and live to talk about it. But injuries can be extensive and costly. We’re not going to state in this article how much a two or three week stay, or longer, in a hospital will cost, not to mention emergency surgery and potential lifelong care if your injuries warrant it, because the number is quite literally shocking. This is why you must ensure that someone else is paying the bill, and that someone is the negligent party who caused your accident.
Insurance companies hold billions of dollars and have the capacity to compensate you tremendously for your injuries, pain, and suffering, but insurance companies are not really in the business of insuring. Insurance companies are in the business of collecting money and paying out only what can be proven in a court of law. This is not to say that many insurance companies don’t step up and pay right away when they are liable on a claim, because many times they do. But if there is even the slightest chance that they can deny your claim for whatever reason, they just might. And when this happens, actually BEFORE this happens, you need to have a car accident attorney in Houston, TX on your side who isn’t afraid to take them to court to sue for damages.
It is commonly known in the legal and insurance worlds that insurance companies are much more likely to settle a claim fairly, and without a trial at all, when they know the plaintiff’s attorney has a track record of winning cases in court. If your attorney is untested, and fears going to court to fight a billion-dollar company, then the insurance company might not be so willing to settle for the amount you are truly owed, and that… is something that we cannot stand to see.

And unfortunately, David sees money being left on the proverbial table all the time, money that victims need for their injuries, long term care and family security, all because the plaintiff chose an inexperienced attorney who didn’t have a razor sharp understanding of the complex laws, or any experience fighting in court. Fortunately, when you work with David as your car accident attorney in Houston, TX, you will be getting a seasoned fighter. Like Manny Pacquiao, Mayweather, Marciano, Sugar Ray, Liston, and the great Ali, when David steps into his ring—the courtroom—he comes prepared, skilled, seasoned, and ready for battle. Because what’s at stake in a personal injury case is much greater than any title belt; what’s at stake is your health, your future, and your family’s security, and nothing is more important to David than that.
