When results matter the most

Car Accident Attorneys base in Houston, TX

Year after year, Texas continues to see an increase in population growth. This is not surprising, considering Texas has a lot to offer. Unfortunately, this increase in population growth may also be contributing to an increase is auto accidents.  Since 2003, Texas has seen a steady increase in motor vehicle deaths, according to the Texas Department of Transportation. Among the different types of motor vehicle accidents, crashes involving cars tend to be the most common.

When a serious accident occurs, an experienced legal team can help make sure you or a loved one are not taken advantage of by insurance companies or big firms. Insurance companies have groups of lawyers or adjusters who are there to evaluate injury claims and find any evidence to potentially limit or devalue the claim or settlement offer. They have the necessary resources to try to lowball the injury victim, especially those who do not have representation. It’s important to have legal representation that has the experience and the resources to contend with these billion-dollar insurance companies. Our attorneys at Fleming, Nolen & Jez are talented car accident injury lawyers.  

What To Do After a Car Accident

The serious injuries that occur in car accidents far too often result in considerable medical bills and can even restrict the victim’s ability to resume employment following their recovery. No matter what kind of accident you were involved in, whether you were riding on a bicycle, walking on the sidewalk, in a car accident, involved in a truck accident or in a motorcycle accident, if someone else’s negligent actions resulted in your injury, you should be able to fight for your rights and secure the compensation you deserve.

  • Pull Over (if possible)

    Stay at the scene and check if anyone needs medical assistance. Depending on how severe the accident is, some may be in shock. After stopping your vehicle, take a moment to gather your thoughts and assess the situation.

  • Call the Police

    Texas Transportation Code § 550.026 requires anyone who has been in an accident that resulted in injuries or significant property damage to call the police. This allows you to have a record of the facts of what happened during the accident with law enforcement.

  • Gather Evidence at the Scene

    While the police are on their way, take pictures of the damage of both vehicles and any injuries sustained. Take a mental note of how the accident happened. Look around for any traffic cameras that may have caught the collision on tape, which can be requested later. Finally, see if there were any other drivers or pedestrians who may have seen the accident happen. If so, politely ask if they could give a statement to the police or providing their contact information to you.

  • Visit the Doctor

    Make sure to seek medical treatment if you or another person were seriously injured. If you think you are clear of injury, make sure to visit the doctor anyway since some injuries do not appear until days after the collision. The longer you wait, the more difficult it may be to prove that your injuries were directly caused by the accident. Keep detailed notes of all medical treatments.

  • Call the Insurance Company

    Contact your insurance company following any accident, as there may be coverage under your policy that can assist with your recovery and medical treatments. Personal Injury Protection (PIP) provides compensation to you if you are hurt in a car accident, regardless of whether you were at fault or not.

  • Hire A Qualified Texas Car Accident Attorney

    Be sure to hire an attorney who will fight to hold the other driver accountable. It is an important decision that should not be taken lightly, as it may dictate the outcome of your case.

Determining Who Is Responsible

Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of personal injury claims in the United States, and millions of people are hurt or even killed due to serious driver error, negligence, or distraction.

Determining who is responsible (whether it is another driver or multiple drivers, the road design, or anything else) is a key part of the legal process. We will work with you to recreate the events leading up to the crash in order to learn which parties are responsible and put together a plan of action that best suits your needs.

Motorcycle Accidents

According to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), around 420,000 motorcycles are registered in the state of Texas. As popular as these vehicles are, they can also be incredibly dangerous. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) claims that over 5,000 motorcyclist were killed in the U.S. in 2019, which accounted for 14% of all traffic fatalities.

Motorcycle riders don’t have the same level of protection as people who drive cars, and as a result, are at a far greater risk of injury. If your injuries were caused by someone else’s actions, you deserve the chance to file a lawsuit to recover the compensation you need to cover any damages you may have incurred. At Fleming, Nolen & Jez, our motorcycle accident attorneys have dedicated their careers to providing our clients with knowledgeable and passionate legal representation, and through their efforts, we have successfully recovered verdict awards and monetary compensation for our clients.

Who Was At Fault?

Determining who was at fault is a key part of proving liability in a crash. In many cases, motorcycle accidents and car accidents are caused by negligence or wrongdoing by another driver who failed to notice the oncoming vehicle. Some other factors include:

  • Poor road conditions
  • Bad weather
  • Defective or dangerous vehicle parts
  • Obstructions/obstacles
  • Poor visibility

Whatever the cause of your car accident or motorcycle accident, it’s important to understand your options and entitlement to compensation.
