Houston Motor Vehicle Accidents Attorney
Any trip on a Houston highway or street can be dangerous. In 2012, an average of 92 people died each day in motor vehicle crashes– one every 16 minutes. It is often not enough to practice defensive driving to avoid an accident. You cannot account for or prevent the negligence of the driver next to you or behind you.
Negligence on the part of one driver can lead to injuries and even death for others on the road. Many drivers today are distracted by cell phones and talk, text, or even surf the web while driving. Distracted driving can lead to tragic and even fatal crashes. If you have been injured in a Houston motor vehicle accident, The Martin Law Firm can help.
