Lake Jackson Personal Injury Attorneys
The City of Lake Jackson, built on the former site of a plantation owned by Abner and Margaret Jackson, was created in 1942 as a planned community to house workers for the Dow Chemical Company. Major highways in the area include Texas State Highway 288 and the Nolan Ryan Expressway. The town is known for its unique winding roads and their nomenclature: streets that lead toward the city’s downtown area are named “Way” (examples include “This Way” and “That Way”) while other streets are named after plants and trees. Those trees, prominently featured in the city’s design, have led Lake Jackson to be listed as a Tree City USA community.
While winding roads and trees create an idyllic setting, they can also make driving more hazardous. Dangerous driving conditions often contribute to motor vehicle accidents. If you have been hurt in a car accident in Lake Jackson, you may be eligible for compensation under Texas law.
Cire Law Firm has been representing car accident victims for three decades. Texas law holds drivers accountable for the damage they cause in auto accidents. Our Lake Jackson legal team helps bring claims on behalf of those who have been hurt in accidents caused by:
- Drunk driving. When drivers get behind the wheel after drinking or using drugs, they are a danger to themselves and everyone else on the road. In Texas, it is unlawful to drive with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher.
- Distracted driving. Now more than ever, drivers are paying attention to cellphones and other devices instead of keeping their eyes on the road. While it isn’t illegal in Texas to drive while using a cellphone, a driver can still be held accountable if he causes an accident.
- Drowsy driving. Many people are surprised to find that lack of sleep can affect a driver nearly as much as alcohol can. When a driver nods off behind the wheel, he can cause accidents and injuries.
- Reckless driving. When drivers ignore traffic laws or traffic signals, they increase the risk of hitting pedestrians or other vehicles.
Auto accidents are only one of the ways in which local residents become victims of personal injuries. Cire Law Firm represents drivers, pedestrians and vehicle passengers, as well as those who have fallen or been hurt at work.
After an auto accident, our legal team determines who is at fault and works to help you recover compensation from the responsible parties, including:
- Insurance companies
- Trucking companies
- City and state agencies
- Vehicle manufacturers
In addition to representing those injured in auto accidents, our firm seeks justice for those hurt by malpractice, by negligence or at work.
