Personal Injury Caused by Atascocita Car Accidents
With bustling highways and cities, car accidents are unfortunately all too common. And Atascocita is no exception. In fact, Texas has one of the highest rates of traffic accidents in the country. In 2022 alone, the Texas Department of Transportation reported 18,880 individuals who sustained serious injuries following crashes. There were also 4,481 fatalities recorded that year.
Those are some startling numbers. Even more staggering, is the fact that most of these motor vehicle accidents could have been avoided. Among the most common causes behind vehicle accidents that our law firm has witnessed include:
- Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol;
- Distracted driving (examples include, eating, texting, and turning attention towards other passengers while behind the wheel);
- Reckless driving (excessive speeding, failure to yield the right-of-way, etc.)
If you have been recently injured in a car wreck (whether it be a hit-and-run accident, drunk driving accident, rear-end collision, etc.), you may find the process of filing a car accident claim to be time-consuming especially if you have limited legal knowledge. However, you do not have to face this challenging time alone.
Reach out to an experienced Atascocita personal injury attorney who will listen to you, assess the circumstances of your case, and build a strong case to prove negligence so that you can obtain the compensation you deserve.

Though Texas has a booming economy due to its activities in multiple industries including oil and gas, construction, and manufacturing, these sectors bear a high risk for work-related injuries. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 533 workplace fatalities recorded in 2021.
Texas is also one of the only states in the United States where employers are not required to have workers’ compensation insurance. However, they are obligated by law to comply with reporting requirements under the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act. This requires private employers to:
- Report if they do not have workers’ compensation coverage;
- Report any work-related injuries and/or illnesses.
Whether it is a construction accident or a scaffolding accident, when seeking out your options, you should depend on an experienced Atascocita personal injury attorney who knows the ins and outs of Texas labor laws. This will allow them to build a solid case while seeking the best compensation for you.
At Simmons and Fletcher, P.C., we understand the personal hurdles following work-related accidents. This may stem from the piling of medical expenses to lost wages due to your incapacity to continue work. By relying on our team of seasoned personal injury attorneys, we’ll navigate through the complexities of the legal system to successfully settle your injury claim.

Atascocita Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice

- Traumatic brain injury;
- Spinal cord injury which may lead to paralysis;
