On January 7, a 59-year-old man died, and others were injured, in a five-car pile-up on Houston’s Katy Freeway. The accident occurred at approximately 9:00 a.m., when a Chevrolet Tahoe collided with a Chevrolet Impala. The drivers of three other vehicles were unable to stop in time to avoid becoming involved.
At some point in our lives, virtually all of us will be involved in a motor vehicle accident, and may require the services of a car accident lawyer in Houston.
So many different factors can come into play in a multi-vehicle accident like the one that occurred on the Katy Freeway, which is under investigation.
Speeding is almost always a factor. Obviously, the faster you’re going, the greater the likelihood of damage if you should be involved in a collision. In a multi-vehicle accident, the damage can rise exponentially because it is almost a given that more than one driver involved will be travelling at an excessive rate of speed. Perhaps you’ve sustained a personal injury in a multi-car pile-up caused by people driving too fast for conditions, and you need to speak to a car accident lawyer in Houston. If that’s the case, contact Kirkendall Dwyer LLP for a free consultation.
Other causes of multi-vehicle accidents are distracted driving (texting, focusing on your GPS, checking your purse, etc.), aggressive driving (road rage, tailgating), and of course, driving under the influence. In fact, in Texas, someone is injured or killed every twenty minutes in a highly preventable accident involving alcohol.
