Best Car Accident Attorney

Texas has no shortage of car accidents. What upsets us the most at The Law Offices of Colby Lewis is that we refer to the outcome as an “accident” but by definition, an accident is unpreventable. More often than not, the drivers poor decisions hurt innocent victims on the road. We are supposed to share the road with our fellow drivers, but many drive as if they own it. While there are many reasons for car crashes, some of the common reasons are as follows:

Unsafe to Drive

Drivers operating uninsured, uninspected and unsafe cars. Vehicle fires are sadly common in Texas.

Distracted Drivers

Distracted drivers using cell phones leading to car accidents. It’s not an accident if its preventable.

Changing Lanes

We all know you’re supposed to look twice before changing lanes. Even with blind-spot-detection features, lane changes cause car accidents regularly.

Severe Injuries

Some injuries are severe and take years of your life away spent in rehab. You deserve just compensation to say the least.

Emotional Drivers

Road rage is real. Unfortunately truck drivers rage on our Texas roads often. 18 wheeler accidents are drastically worse given their sheer size. 

Failure to yield

Failure to yield right of way leads to car accidents often. We can’t count on the next guy to be paying attention.

Common Injuries in a Car Accident

"Are you hurt?"

The insurance company will ask you “are you hurt?” but how do you know? Are you a doctor? And if you are, can you perform a medical assessment on yourself? Most of us are not Doctors and therefore we cannot answer that question fairly. Insurance companies ask these kinds of questions to pin you down. But not if you call Colby. Colby Lewis, Houston’s car accident lawyer is here to fight for you. Call Colby Now.

What to do after a car accident, not your fault?

The steps you take immediately following a car accident can mean the difference between recovery and your case being unsuccessful. Take the following steps to preserve and build your case:

– Call 911

– Receive prompt medical attention

– Take photos & videos if you can

– Obtain names & contact info of the other driver(s) and witnesses

– Obtain a copy of the police report

– Call Colby

Evidence matters.

When you work with your attorney, they will evaluate your case using the evidence relevant to your crash. This evidence can take many forms, including, but not limited to:

– Eyewitness Statements

– Police Report

– Medical Records

– Dash cam footage

– Photos & Videos from the scene

In addition to helping to establish fault and laying the groundwork for your case, this evidence will help establish the amount and type of damages you are able to recover, including pain and suffering. Call Colby Now, your car accident attorney.
