Causes of Auto Accidents

There are many common causes of car accidents in Houston, with a large majority being the result of a driver’s inattention or distracted driving. 

Some examples are the following:

  • Texting while driving - Distracted driving is the leading cause of motor vehicle accidents in Houston. Distractions are classified as auditory, visual, manual, and cognitive. Certain actions, such as texting, involves all four categories of distractions. Other common distractions includes eating, programming or watching a GPS device, applying makeup, adjusting radio or air conditioning volume, applying makeup, or any form of physical or visual distraction a motorist can be engaged in. A recent study conducted in 2020 by Zendrive examined cell phone usage and determined that Houston has more distracted drives than any other city in the United States. In 2019, according to the Texas Department of Transportation, there were more than 97000 collisions caused by distracted driving. 

  • Drunk driving (DWI and DUI) accidents - Drunk driving is a leading cause of car accidents here in Houston. Under Texas Law, if a driver has an .08% or higher "Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) level, he or she is considered legally intoxicated and could be charged with a DWI. 

  • Speeding: Every year, approximately 13,000 people die in car accidents where speeding was a contributing factor. Trailing only Dallas, Houston ranks second in the United States for the number of fatal wrecks involving speeding. Speeding accidents often results in someone being read-ended into while stopped at a red light, or struck from behind in congested traffic on the freeway or access ramp.

  • Running a stop sign - Red light violations cause approximately 165,000 injuries a year and most commonly result in broadside or "T-bone" collisions. Broadside collisions often cause structural damage that results in the vehicles being determined a total loss.  

  • Unsafe lane changes

  • Aggressive driving: Aggressive driving is a growing public concern in Houston and across Harris County, often resulting in the aggressor also fleeing scene of the traffic accident. To avoid aggressive driving: 

    • Use your horn short and sparingly

    • Stay calm and avoid forms of retaliation

    • Plan ahead and anticipate a motorist's actions

    • Focus on your own driving. Be cautious and considerate

    • Give the angry driver additional room

    • Avoid eye contact with the driver

    • Use the left lane only when passing

    • Do not flash your bright when behind another car

    • If you're concerned for your safety, call 911.

  • Brake checking: Break checking is a form of road rage and illegal here in Texas. In accidents where aggressive forms of driving endangers people witness testimony or video surveillance in necessary to prove the liable party was engaged in these behaviors.  

  • Passing in no passing zone

  • Vehicle defects like recalls, tire blowouts, and airbag failures

  • Dangerous or poorly maintained roads

  • Road work site accidents

  • Window tint violations

  • Violating railroad riles

  • Failing to stop for pedestrians

More than 3,600 people die on Texas roadways every year, with the most common contributor being speed-related accidents. A speed-related collision can occur anywhere, but certain streets here in Houston have been recognized for having a higher rate of speed related traffic collisions, including South Post Oak Road, Airline Drive, Fry Road, Main Street, Beechnut and West Little York. 

 

In cases where a driver is not legally liable in causing the accident, the responsible party could be:

 

  • A bar or nightclub that over-served a driver 

  • Vehicle manufacturers

  • Car dealership or reseller

  • Vehicle repair shops

  • Construction companies

  • A police department

  • Local governmental authority

For complex auto accidents such as those involving the above responsible Defendant, you need to select the best car accident lawyer in Houston to handle your claim. Niles Sneed is considered by his peers to be among the premier trial lawyers in Texas. Many lawyers claim to be trial attorneys, Niles' work speaks for itself.

Forms of Traffic Collisions

On average, around 200 car accidents occur each day here in Harris County, and research indicates that most occur within five miles of the home. There are many types of car accidents, with the most common types being: 

 

Rear-end collisions

 

Causes of rear-end collisions include driver inattention, tailgating, and panic stops. One of the common scenarios our clients experience is when we stopped at a red light and rear ended by the at-fault.

T-bone collisions

 

 T-bone accidents, also called “side impact” or broadside collisions occur when the front end of one vehicle crashes into the side of another. Usually this happens when a driver fails to stop and a stop sign or traffic signal. These collisions often result in vehicles being declared a “total loss” and serious bodily injuries. 

Sideswipe collisions

 

Sideswipe collisions happen when cars traveling parallel or going opposite directions swipe the side of one another. One driver is normally making a lane change and doesn’t see the other driver in their blind spot. 

Vehicle rollovers

A rollover accident is when a vehicle flips, lands on its side or roof, or completes a full revolution. These accidents are amongst the most dangerous form of vehicular crash and account for more than 10,000 fatalities each year. Wearing a seat belt significantly increases the survival rate. The most common reasons for rollover car accidents include:

  • Unexpected road conditions

  • Increment weather 

  • Poor road conditions

  • Distracted driving

  • Drowsy driving

  • Driving under the influence

Rollover accident are often avoidable and the result of a driver's negligence.  

 

Head-on collisions

Head-on collisions are traffic collisions where the front ends hit each other when traveling opposite directions. Although the frequency of these accidents is low, they cause the most fatalities and tragic consequences each year in Houston. 

The most common head-on accident injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries

  • Spinal cord injuries

  • Whiplash

  • Lacerations

  • Contusions

  • Broken bones

Multiple vehicle pileups

 

Usually called “pile up”, multi-car collision, or multi-vehicle collision, these road traffic accidents involve many vehicles and generally occur on high-capacity and high speed routs like freeways. 

Hit-and-runs

 

Hit and run accidents are a daily occurrence in Houston and involve a driver causing an accident and fleeing the scene. The likelihood of being involved in a hit and run is 1 in 10 according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.

Texas Car Insurance Law

Texas car insurance law requires motorists to provide proof of their financial responsibility after collisions occur on our state's roads and highways. Most vehicle owners choose to comply with this requirement by purchasing car insurance. The Texas Department of Insurance (TxDOT) requires a driver to have the following minimum amounts of liability car insurance coverage:

 

  • $30,000 for bodily injury liability per person injured in an accident you cause

  • $60,000 for total bodily injury liability when two or more people are injured in an accident you cause, and

  • $25,000 for property damage per accident you cause.


This basic coverage is known as a "30/60/25" coverage plan and covers the non-responsible party’s medical costs, vehicle damage, pain and suffering and all costs to other drivers, passengers, and pedestrians that suffered injuries as a result of the at-fault unsafe or negligent actions, up to coverage limits. 


Once policy limits are exhausted, the at-fault is then responsible for any additional sum necessitated by the victim’s damages from the car accident. 

Texas Auto Accident Laws

Texas has complex car accident laws that are important to understand as a non-liable party. Otherwise, you could make a mistake that negatively impacts your opportunity to secure fill compensation for your damages – or any compensation at all. After a crash in Houston, Cypress, Humble, Pasadena, Pearland, Spring, or elsewhere in Harris County, contact an experienced Houston auto accident lawyer as soon as you can for information about your accident. We will make it easy to navigate the laws pertaining to your case.

Statute of limitations

 

One key law to know is your statute of limitations, or the deadline for filing a lawsuit. In Texas, all crash victims have two (2) years from the date of their car accidents to file related to their bodily injuries and two (2) years for property-damage only claims. Judges in Harris County courts generally do not provide time extensions to these rules. The clock begins on the date of discovery is claims that only involve vehicular damage. 

 

Fault Based Insurance Coverage

 

Texas follows fault-based car insurance laws. The Texas Department of Insurance requires that all drivers maintain adequate liability insurance: bodily injury coverage ($30,000 per person, $60,000 per accident) and property damage liability ($25,000). After an accident, non-liable parties file claims with the at-fault party’s insurance company. Injury victims also have the right to bring a lawsuits instead of insurance claims, which is sometimes a better recovery option, depending on the situation. 

Modified Comparative Fault In Texas

The State of Texas does not prevent a victim from recovering financial compensation recovery accidents that partially caused to occur. Instead, the rules of modified comparative fault that reduce the victim’s recovery award by his or her portion (or percentage) of fault. Under this system, a victim can recover a compensation award as long as they are found less than 51% at fault. An attorney from our firm will assist you in standing up for your rights by asserting a comparative negligence defense.

One of the reasons clients hire Sneed|Mitchell LLP is for our immense knowledge and understanding of Texas car accident laws. We stay updated on the latest changes in the law – and we also push for positive changes through our litigation. We are often at the forefront of the laws in Texas. Our mission is not just to help you completely recovery, but to make a positive impact on on your life and future through our legal efforts.

What To Do After a Hit And Run 

A hit-and-run accident is one in which the at-fault driver does not remain at the scene of the accident to fulfil their legal duty of care, which includes exchanging contact information and insurance policy details. In a hit-and-run case, you might not know how to properly proceed with a property or bodily injury claim since the identity of the driver is unknown. Texas at-fault car insurance laws do not apply when the responsible driver is unknown, leaving the innocent party to utilize their own full coverage insurance benefits instead.  

 

Not all hope is lost. To protect your chance of recovery after a hit and run accident, call the police as soon as possible. The police can investigate the crash site, license plate information, and surveillance cameras, which may help track down the at-fault driver. If the police are successful, you can proceed with a car accident claim like in any other claim. If the at-fault driver cannot be located, however, you will have to seek compensation through use of your own auto insurance coverage. The Texas Transportation Code provides that the operator of a motor vehicle that does not remain at the scene has committed a criminal offense can be fined up to $5,000, and face imprisonment up to five years. 

 

In Texas, drivers are not required to obtain uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance. If you have this insurance benefit, your insurer will pay for your property damage repairs and medical bills related to the hit-and-run accident damages. A Houston auto accident attorney from our firm can help ensure that you receive a settlement that each form of damage that you suffered. If negotiations are unsuccessful, our attorney will file the lawsuit in Harris County and have a Texas jury decide the claim. 

I Was Hit By A Commercial Vehicle

If you were hit by a driver that you believe was operating a commercial motor vehicle, you need to speak with an experienced attorney. A commercial motor vehicle (CMV) is one that operates for a commercial, or business purpose, and therefore includes all semi tractor tractors, those carrying products such as Amazon and FedEx, ridesharing vehicles like Uber and Lyft, and even those used for visual advertising. 

 

Insurance companies issue commercial general liability policies often aggressively defend these claims because coverage limits are often much larger. Our firm often sees CMV policies range from $250,000 to $1,000,000, which provides a large benefit to clients that suffered extensive injuries or economic impact.  

What Types Of Damages Can A Houston Car Accident Lawyers Help Me Obtain?

If you want to file a claim for damages, we will help you understand what types of damages are obtainable in Texas and to list in your demand letter against the at-fault driver. Every car accident case is different, with unique types of damages and impacts suffered by the survivors. Seeking the right type and amount of damages increased your chances of obtaining a successful insurance settlement. 

 

A Houston auto accident lawyer from Sneed|Mitchell LLP will review your case and calculate a fair amount to claim. Then, we can fight to secure this amount or more from an insurance company or another liable defendant here in Harris County.

 

  • Existing medical debts

  • Future treatment costs

  • Future lost wage

  • Car damage repairs

Can I Have My Vehicle Repaired Near Me?

The Texas Department of Insurance provides that by law, you have the right to select where you motor vehicle is repaired and the parts used for your vehicle. Therefore, do not let an insurance adjuster strong-arm you into selecting a repair shop on their "qualified" list. The insurance company is liable to pay reasonable repair costs for the vehicle's structural damages. The insurance adjuster can only use one estimate to determine the amount of damage. 

The Most Dangerous Intersections in Houston

Our personal injury lawyers worked to determine which intersections in Houston are the most dangerous to our clients by researching which crossroads had more than 40 collisions the previous three years. Bissonnette Street and Sam Houston Parkway certainly makes the list, with more than 100 accidents annually. 

The following roads are most threatening to the safety of local motorists: 

  1. Long Point at Gessner

  2. Sam Houston Parkway at Westheimer Road

  3. Main Street at South Loop

  4. Fondren and West Belfort 

  5. Bissonnette Street at Sam Houston Parkway

  6. St. Joseph Parkway at Pierce Street 

  7. Spring Branch at Sam Houston Parkway

  8. Hardy Road at Sam Houston Parkway

  9. Sam Houston Parkway at Highway 6

  10. I-45 at Sam Houston Parkway

Not only does Houston have some of the dangerous intersections in Texas, but each year the 100 miles portion of Interstate 45 (I-45) running through Houston ranks as the most deadly stretch of freeway in the United States. Data from the Texas Department of Transportation provides that the most common contributing factor in these accidents is speeding, followed by alcoholic and drug-related aggravating factors. When driving on any busy intersection or roadway, always be aware of the vehicles near you to help detect the unsafe actions of others. 

How Much Is My Car Accident Claim Worth?

The value of your Houston car accident case will depend on several factors, including:

What Happens During A Car Accident Lawsuit?

If you or a loved one were injured in an auto accident, you may need to file a lawsuit to recover your medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering, property damage, and other damages. Filing the personal injury claim can involve the following steps and stages:

  • Contact an The Best Car Accident Lawyer:  An experienced car accident lawyer will ensure the proper evidence is preserved, refer you to the best doctors, evaluate all of your injuries to determine the level of compensation you are entitled to recover, and do all possible to ensure you secure the maximum level of compensation made possible under Texas Law. 

  • Issue a Demand Letter: After you have reached your maximum medical recovery, our attorneys will collect your medical treatment records and bills, calculate your lost wages, and submit a Demand Letter to the at-fault motorist's insurance carrier. That letter will detail the amount of damages that the insurance adjuster must pay you resolve your case before trial.

  • Settlement Negotiations and Trial Preparation: Given our reputation for recovering award-winning verdicts in the courtroom, insurance companies and their adjusters know our Car Accident Attorneys will never accept an inadequate settlement and won’t hesitate to go to trial if they refuse to pay maximum compensation for all of your injuries and losses. As a result, many car accident claims that we handle settle for more than average. 

  • Discovery: If your claim is within the 3% of our auto accident cases that do not initially settle, then our attorneys file the lawsuit and the "Discovery Phase" begins. During this phase, we request the at-fault driver's driving history, text messaging records, and insurance claim file from the insurance company’s litigation attorneys. Once we receive responses, even if we have to compel through filing motions with the court, we’ll then take the deposition of the driver and any witnesses to the crash, your doctors, and anyone else with information relevant to how and why the crash occurred. The amount of damages we’ll seek on your behalf at trial is also effected by the helpful evidence obtained through the Discovery Phase.

  • Mediation: Many judges here in Harris County require both parties to participate in alternative dispute resolution efforts before trial. In this mediation the neutral third-party mediator attempts to help the parties negotiate to avoid the claim being placed before the jury in the courtroom.

  • Trial: If the Defendant refuses to pay the full level of compensation owed before the date of trail, then the lawsuit will go to court. Depending on the complexity of the case and the number of witnesses involved, trials typically last 1 to 3 days. Before opening statements, and even during trial, insurance adjusters and their lawyers often approach our attorneys to settle the case before the jury returns a verdict in favor of our client. If the cases reaches a settlement, the judge information the jury that the case as been successfully resolved and the Defendant is absolved of liability. 

What If I Miss Time At Work Due To The Car Crash?

If your injuries prevent you from returning to work after a car accident in Texas, you are entitled to collect compensation any current and future lost wages you experience. Even when victims continue to receive wages through utilization of sick time or paid time off (PTO), the at-fault driver responsible for repaying the income lost, if you can prove they operated their vehicle negligently and caused your injuries. 

Sometime, due to an employer's strict work absence policy, a person may be terminated for requiring additional time off, or after remaining off work from an extended time while recovering from their injuries. Losing income can have a devastating impact on a family's finances and well being. 

If you are unable to return to work or are permanently disabled from a car accident, a personal injury attorney can include your economic damages in the claim for legal compensation. Here at Sneed|Mitchell LLP, we work with Texas most experienced economic damages expert that calculate and define the various economic losses a plaintiff suffers as a result of an injury. Oftentimes, income tax records are used. If a person is a business owner, balance sheets, profit and loss statements, or accounts receivable and payable are also analyzed to define the loss experienced. 

 

Economic damage experts play an irreplaceable role in personal injury lawsuits. This is why consulting with a professional and experienced car accident attorney is important when seeking loss wages related to a traffic accident.
