Car Accidents and DWI Accidents
Listening to daily traffic reports on the local TV and radio stations in Houston can be scary! It's like a bumper car ride out there. How many times a week do you personally pass accident wreckage on the highway? If you or a loved one has been injured in a Texas car accident, call Attorney Steve Lee. We have represented tens of thousands of clients in the last 35 years from the same location at 6001 Gulf Freeway in Houston.
Accidents happen due to all kinds of reasons, including speeding, drinking and driving, unsafe lane changes, following too closely, running red lights and stop signs, and reckless truck drivers. The safest driver in the world can be injured due to no fault of her own. When that happens, Steve Lee can help you!
Now, We Can Prove Who Hit You
Red light cameras can help establish who is responsible for causing a violent collision. Before Houston installed red light cameras, frequently the person who ran the light and seriously injured others simply lied to the police officer; that driver and his or her insurance company escaped being responsible for medical bills, property damage and lost wages. Now that Houston has red light cameras at many major intersections, it is no longer a “swearing match,” and people injured by the reckless driver can get the help they deserve. Steve Lee and his experienced attorneys and staff are here to make sure you are fairly compensated and your rights are protected.
Carry a camera in your car! If you are involved in an accident, it is very helpful to have photographs of the vehicles and accident scene later on. Once the vehicles are towed away, it is impossible to get those images.
The law requires that every vehicle in Texas carry auto liability insurance. That law is widely ignored. Do you know that one out of every three vehicles in Houston has no insurance? If one of these vehicles harms you and your family, and if you do not carry Underinsured Motorist Coverage on your own insurance policy, you will be forced to personally pay the medical bills for you and your family. Insist that your insurance agent sell you the Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage and Personal Injury Protection Coverage. This additional coverage is very inexpensive and will provide vital protection to you and your family for very little cost.
Trucks, Trucks, and More Trucks
Accidents with dump trucks, garbage trucks, gasoline trucks, landscaping trucks, and armored trucks can all cause serious injuries. Southeast Texas—from Houston to Beaumont, Huntsville to Galveston, Sealy to Baytown—is one of America's busiest corridors for commercial truck traffic. Accidents involving 18-wheelers can result in serious injuries and even death. An 80,000 pound truck causes tremendous damage to vehicles and people when involved in a collision. If you are involved in an accident with a big rig truck or other commercial vehicle, you need an experienced attorney to assist you—and Steve Lee is that attorney.
DWI is a major problem for motorists in Texas. Accidents involving intoxicated drivers often occur at high speed and result in serious injuries and fatalities. Do not be a victim twice. If you are involved in an accident with a drunk driver, call Steve Lee. The experienced attorneys and staff at Steve M. Lee, P.C., will investigate your case thoroughly and make sure your rights are protected. Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a crime. Let us help you and your family get fairly treated when you are hurt as a result of a drunk or drugged driver.
Dealing With Insurance Companies
Insurance companies do not like to pay claims. If the insurance company is giving you and your loved ones the run-around, call Steve Lee today! If you are injured, you need to get medical treatment as soon as possible. Also, remember that immediately after an accident, you may be upset and do not realize you have been injured. Emergency room doctors and nurses know that 24 to 48 hours after the accident is when you begin to experience the greatest amount of pain. If you need help getting the proper treatment for a traumatic injury, call Steve Lee at 713-921-4171 or 800-232-3711.
