A rear end collision is a situation that is all too common for drivers, making up approximately 29% of all car crashes. According to a report by the NHTSA, rear end collisions are the most common type of car crash. Most of these collisions can be attributed to a distracted driver.

A rear end collision can seem harmless, as many rear end collisions are what can be described as a "fender bender."

You can also ensure that both you and your passengers are always wearing seat belts in order to stay safe in the event of a car crash.

 Negligent Drivers and Car Accidents - The Stephens Law Firm Accident Lawyers Houston TX 77024 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 93

Negligent drivers account for a large number of unnecessary car wrecks in the United States. Negligent driving includes unintentionally failing to provide a safe environment for other drivers and pedestrians or driving on private property without the owner's consent. The consequences for negligent driving can include fines, license suspension, or possible jail time depending on the severity of damage to people or property in the case of an accident. Drivers should allow for plenty of time to get to a destination to avoid speeding, improper lane changes, or failure to obey traffic signals, and avoid distracted driving behavior like texting and driving. These behaviors, while they can seem harmless, make it much easier to cause a car crash. While these behaviors and their consequences could be described as "accidental," they can still cause serious damage to property and other innocent drivers. If you have been involved in an accident with a negligent driver it is difficult to navigate the court process in order to receive the most compensation for your claim. If you are searching for one of the best car accident lawyers in Texas, look no further than The Stephens Law Firm.

 Medical Expenses and Car Accidents - The Stephens Law Firm Accident Lawyers Houston TX 77024 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 93

In the event of a car accident, you may incur medical expenses that far exceed what you might expect. For an emergency room visit, the costs typically added up to $3,300, while an extended hospital stay can cost $57,000 or more. Most people do not have the money on hand to pay these kinds of fees, and as a result, can be weighed down by debt as a result of personal injury. Unfortunately, the process of coordinating payments with an insurance company and medical care in the event of an accident can be frustrating and confusing. The negligent driver's insurance company should pay for the medical bills incurred as a result of the accident, but they may try to cut your settlement short of the full expense. As a result, you may need a car accident lawyer who can help you negotiate a proper settlement for your claim. If you have been injured in a car accident and are struggling through the process of negotiating a settlement, The Stephens Law Firm is ready to help.

 Picking the Right Insurance Coverage - The Stephens Law Firm Accident Lawyers Houston TX 77024 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 93

For many drivers, insurance is something that they pay monthly and usually don't give much thought about. However, if you are involved in an accident you may find that insurance does not cover the full amount of expenses that you incur during the accident, and working through the legal process for those who have no experience with it can be difficult, stressful, and confusing. Because of this, hiring an auto collision lawyer is often a wise choice for those seeking compensation for a car accident. Even if an accident occurs that is not your fault, you could still incur injuries or property damage that is not covered by insurance. Some people may have personal injury protection insurance however, most states do not require this protection, and even those who have it may find that their expenses are not covered. PIP will not cover some medical expenses or lost wages due to an accident, or expenses in excess of the policy coverage. Finding yourself in this position can be extremely stressful and frustrating. The Stephens Law Firm is available to help you with your car wreck claim. We are available to you 24/7 for a helping hand during the most difficult time in your life. We offer a free, no-obligation consultation in order to make the process as fast and easy as possible. Contact us today to see what your claim may be worth.

Most drivers pay for car insurance in the hope that it will never have to be used. However, in the event of property damage or a personal injury after a car accident, many people expect that the insurance they have consistently paid for will now take care of them.

There are several reasons why a claim might be denied, and there are steps you can take in order to receive compensation for your damages and injuries. It is possible that your insurance company will deny your claim if you have exhausted your policy limits, not enough coverage, or if you were in violation of the law at the time of the accident. If your claim is denied but you believe you are entitled to compensation, hire an experienced car wreck attorney to help you get proper compensation. The Stephens Law Firm is ready to help you get the most compensation for your claim. Over thirty years of experience in the industry have allowed us to deal with hundreds of clients and give them successful outcomes.

 Influence of Alcohol and Car Crashes - The Stephens Law Firm Accident Lawyers Houston TX 77024 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 95

According to the CDC, in 2016 more than 1 million drivers were arrested for operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or narcotics. Although impaired driving is a preventable and conscious choice that results in thousands of deaths each year, it continues to be a rampant problem in the US. This accounts for 28% of traffic-related offenses in America each year, and it leads to the death of more than 10,000 people each year. Government officials and police officers need to work to strictly enforce the existing BAC laws, and set up sobriety checkpoints in order to get impaired drivers off the road. Individuals that are affected by impaired drivers should make sure those parties are responsible for their actions by filing a lawsuit for damages. These reckless drivers need to be held accountable for their actions and innocent victims need to receive reparations. Impaired driving accounts for a large portion of vehicle accidents and those who have been involved in an accident with an impaired driver may need to seek legal counsel from a reputable car accident attorney.

 Reckless Lane Changing and Car Accidents - The Stephens Law Firm Accident Lawyers Houston TX 77024 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 91

According to the NHTSA,  improper or reckless lane changes account for 9% of traffic accidents in the United States. Although fatalities are rare for those involved in improper lane change accidents, this kind of accident can still cause significant damage to a vehicle. The leading cause of these accidents is driver distraction, which accounts for 15% of improper lane change accidents. Improper lane change wrecks can also be caused by driver carelessness, especially in incidents where a driver fails to signal a turn or lane change properly or does not check blind spots before merging. These accidents can be dangerous because both drivers involved are usually traveling at a high rate of speed, such as on an interstate, and both are usually caught entirely off guard by the accident. Some accidents caused by improper lane change are unavoidable, especially if you are the driver who is not at fault in the accident. If you are involved in a vehicle accident, you may need an experienced accident lawyer who can help you get the most compensation for your claim. The Stephens Law Firm is one of the best choices for an experienced car wreck lawyer.
