Houston Holiday Weekend Wrecks add to Area Road Death Toll

Posted on May 26, 2014
In a recent post, our I-45 accident injury lawyers mentioned two wrecks where suspected drunken drivers started off the holiday weekend getting themselves arrested after wrecking or almost crashing with HPD vehicles.

Our hope was that higher numbers of safety patrols would reduce the number of Houston traffic injuries this holiday weekend, which are always higher on holiday weekends than on other days. But this weekend has already seen a tragic toll in fatal crashes around the Houston area.

Even if they believe their injuries were caused by an inherent defect in the vehicle, they might think that making a claim against a big automaker would be too difficult and that they would stand no chance anyway. And car defect casesdo require careful investigations and the gathering and presentation of highly technical proof by an experienced Houston auto defect attorney.
