Personal Injury Attorney Seeking Compensation for Injuries and Deaths in Car Crashes

Car Wrecks in Houston

For over 35 years, The Law Firm of Alton C. Todd has helped motor vehicle accident victims recover compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. We have the experience and investigative resources to represent those injured in accidents involving a car, van, panel truck, motorcycle or bicycle. We measure skid marks, collect and analyze accident debris and interview eyewitnesses who can verify what happened. In cases involving catastrophic injuries sustained in 18-wheeler accidents, we check the truck driver's log book, the maintenance schedule of the truck and the driver's record. We then work with medical economists and life care planners who can accurately determine the financial impact of our client's injuries.

If a loved one was killed in a car crash, or you were injured in a car wreck, contact car accident lawyers at the Law Firm of Alton C. Todd today and schedule a free consultation to discuss your case.

How we can help in truck and car accidents

Our car accident injury attorneys have extensive experience helping people injured by uninsured drivers obtain benefits under the Texas uninsured motorist law. If you have more than the most basic coverage, you should be protected in accidents involving an underinsured or uninsured driver. While your policy may only offer partial coverage - or may reduce the amount available if you were in part responsible for the accident - most policies provide some form of uninsured motorist coverage. If your insurer is unwilling to honor the terms of your policy, contact our office today.

Motor vehicle accident injuries

Our clients come to us with a wide variety of catastrophic injuries. We have helped people who have suffered burns, amputations, herniations, head and brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paraplegia and multiple broken bones. Motorcycle and bicycle crashes can be particularly severe. Riders have little or no protection against a heavy, fast-traveling vehicle such as a car or truck.

Causes of car and truck accidents

Many of the accident injuries we have seen were caused by reckless driving, speeding, failing to observe traffic signs and signals, and DUI/DWI. Others were the result of rear-end crashes at high speeds. Motorcycle riders have come to us with horrible road rash requiring extensive plastic surgery. We have helped bicycle riders who were thrown many feet because a car door was suddenly opened in their path. The common thread in these accidents is the catastrophic nature of the injuries they caused.

If you have been seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident, contact an attorney with the experience and knowledge to get you the compensation you need to recover. Call a lawyer at The Law Firm of Alton C. Todd at 1-(281) 992-8633.
