With hundreds of thousands of cars on the road daily, it is no surprise that car accidents in Houston are frequent. And while car accidents are among the most common accidents that result in serious injuries, that doesn’t mean they are straightforward. In many accidents, it can be challenging to determine exactly what happened or who was at fault. To get the compensation you deserve, you need an experienced car accident lawyer who understands the challenges you face and knows how to overcome them. 

Most Car Accidents Are the Result of Negligence

Car accidents are often caused by negligence—the failure to drive prudently and take reasonable care to avoid causing an accident. Some of the most common types of negligence that lead to car accidents include the following: 

  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Running stop signs and stop lights
  • Aggressive driving
  • Failing to yield
  • Driving while drowsy
  • Driving while distracted
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol

The challenge is in proving that the other driver was negligent. Even if you are certain about what happened, you will need evidence that documents the other driver’s negligence. An experienced car accident lawyer can identify the cause of your accident and gather the evidence you need to support your claim. 

Have You Been Injured? 

The next thing you will need to prove is that you suffered injuries as a result of your accident. This may seem obvious, but the details can be critical. You need clear medical documentation describing the extent of your injuries, their cause, any limitations caused by them, and your expected recovery. You may need to prove that your treatment was reasonable and necessary. For catastrophic injuries, such as brain or spinal cord injuries, you will need to prove your future medical expenses. A car accident lawyer from Lopez Franco can help you get the documentation you need to get the compensation you deserve.
