No matter how careful you are, if you drive a car sooner or later you are likely to be involved in an accident. Through no fault of your own, you can be hit by someone who’s speeding, driving drunk, or simply not paying attention. And this is especially true if you live in a highly populated area like Houston.
If you’ve been injured or a loved one has been killed in a auto accident where the other driver was at fault, you have the right to take legal action. At Ben Dominguez Law Firm, we’ve represented countless clients who have suffered at the hands of irresponsible drivers. We work to ensure that all your medical care and financial requirements are addressed, seeking a settlement to provide for your current and future needs.
Common Types of Auto Accidents
Learn more about two of the most common types of auto accidents we handle:
Rear-End or Head-on Collisions
When people hear the term rear-end accident, the first thing to come to mind is often a minor collision that might involve a minor case of whiplash and nothing more. This is an extremely widespread misconception. In reality, rear-end accidents can result in serious damage to vertebrae and injuries to the knees, head, or torso due to contact with the dashboard, steering wheel or windshield.
Head-on collisions can be very dangerous. When one vehicle crosses into oncoming traffic and collides with another vehicle at full speed, an actual impact speed in excess of 70 miles per hour is easily possible. Victims can suffer serious head and neck injuries, skull fractures, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and other injuries. In the most extreme cases, victims can even be ejected from their vehicles.
Many of these accidents are caused by distracted drivers who are making phone calls, sending text messages or are otherwise not paying attention. We seek to hold negligent drivers accountable when their actions cause serious injuries to innocent people. We pursue full and fair compensation on behalf of every client and work to ensure that all your current and future needs are covered.
Accidents Caused by Speeding or Reckless Driving
People who drive too fast create a number of serious hazards for other drivers. Speeding can make it much more difficult for the driver to control his or her vehicle and often leaves little or no time to react to sudden changes in traffic. When these drivers cause accidents, the possibility of serious or even fatal injuries is extremely high.
In accidents that involve speeding, the impact of the crash can be extremely powerful. Injuries can be much more severe and require more extensive care when the accident involves excessive speed. At Ben Dominguez Law Firm, we take the necessary steps to identify all your injuries and work to understand the severity to the fullest extent possible. We won’t rush into a settlement agreement that might limit your ability to seek care for any injury associated with the accident.
