Houston Accident Claim Lawyer

By: Stewart J. Guss

Choosing the Right Attorney Can Make or Break Your Claim

Not to sound paranoid, but on any given day, you encounter many situations that can lead to an accident or injury. For city life, it simply comes with the territory.

Here in Houston, you can suffer from injuries in rush hour traffic accidents, on your motorcycle, while riding your bicycle, or even on a walk. Negligent property owners who do not maintain safe environments put Houston shoppers, diners, and visitors at risk for dangerous slip and fall accidents. We’re a city permanently under construction, and workers on dangerous Houston construction sites risk severe – sometimes fatal – accidents on the daily.

People who suffer severe injuries in an accident must cope with physical pain and mental anguish disrupting their lives, not to mention stacks of bills eating away at their savings. In the worst cases, the pain, stress, and financial burden can last a lifetime.

Many harmful accidents are preventable. You shouldn’t have to suffer because of someone else’s carelessness. With the help of a skilled personal injury lawyer, you can get the compensation you deserve.

Houston Accident Claims Handled by Stewart J. Guss, Attorney at Law

The Houston accident claims lawyers at Stewart J. Guss, Attorney at Law represent accident victims who have suffered injuries in just about any circumstances you can imagine, but we handle some types of accident claims more frequently than others. Our main practice areas include:

Car Accidents

Houston ranks among the most dangerous cities in the United States for drivers, racking up a tragic toll of almost 250 traffic fatalities each year.

Many factors contribute to car accidents, and almost all of them are preventable. Drivers who don’t pay attention to the road or make bad choices behind the wheel put the public at risk for injuries from severe car accidents. Our accident claims lawyers have made it their mission to hold negligent drivers and their insurance companies accountable.

Carelessness and recklessness have no place on the road. No one should suffer because of someone else’s poor choices.

Truck/18-wheeler Accidents

Truck crashes – especially those involving heavy trucks and 18-wheelers – constitute the most damaging and deadly of all traffic accidents.

A fully-loaded semi-truck weighs up to 80,000 pounds. That’s about 20 times more than the average passenger vehicle. In a collision, that size and weight difference means passenger vehicles take the brunt of the impact, and their occupants sustain the most catastrophic injuries.

A truck accident claim can be a puzzle with many moving parts. Multiple parties may be liable for damages: drivers, trucking companies, numerous insurance companies, and even mechanics or manufacturers.

Irresponsible individuals and institutions should face consequences for causing devastating accidents. At Stewart J. Guss, Attorney at Law, we get to the bottom of the accident to hold truck drivers and their employers responsible for the harm they cause.

Motorcycle Accidents

More than 8,000 motorcycle accidents occur across Texas each year, resulting in numerous serious and fatal injuries. Warm weather makes Houston a great area for bikers to commute to work or simply go for a ride. Yet even cautious bikers who wear their helmets and practice defensive driving are at risk of accident and injury because of the careless actions of other motorists.

Bikers have little protection between their bodies and the road, which exposes them to higher risk of catastrophic injuries in a wreck, including brain trauma, spinal cord damage, orthopedic injuries, and road rash. At Stewart J. Guss, Attorney at Law, we help motorcycle accident victims get the compensation they deserve so they can afford high-quality treatment and bounce back from their injuries.

Pedestrian Accidents

Houston area visitors, residents, and workers stroll the sidewalks and pack the crosswalks downtown every day. The city thrives from this foot traffic, but it comes at a risk to pedestrians.

Motorists have a special obligation to drive with care in pedestrian areas. Unfortunately, not all drivers follow the rules. They speed, they text and drive, and they think they can “beat” the yellow light before it turns red.

When drivers fail to take care around pedestrians, collisions happen. Vulnerable pedestrians suffer catastrophic and fatal injuries. They deserve to be compensated after a motor vehicle accident injures them.

The legal team at Stewart J. Guss, Attorney at Law understands the gravity of a severe pedestrian accident injury and fights to get Houston accident victims the money they need.

Bicycle Accidents

Another sad statistic: Harris County regularly finds itself at the top of the list for bicycle accidents and fatalities. In fact, the data’s so alarming that Texas law enforcement made bicycle safety a top traffic priority through its Share the Road program. According to information promoted by the initiative, about half of all bicycle accident fatalities in the Lone Star State occur at night. 70% occur at non-intersections, and almost 60% of bike riders who die are under age 25.

Not only do severe bicycle accident injuries devastate families, but the trauma from these accidents can be especially tragic for child bicycle accident victims. Blame for these accidents frequently falls on careless motorists who drive while distracted, speed, or break other traffic laws. Like pedestrians, cyclists have little to no protection when a vehicle strikes them, which leads to catastrophic and fatal injuries.

Our skilled Houston accident claim attorneys know the traps and tricks insurance companies try to use on vulnerable accident victims. We fight to make sure insurers and legally-liable parties pay our clients what they deserve.

Drunk Driving Accidents

Houston’s breweries and vibrant nightlife make it a popular destination. The Houston area also routinely ranks number one in Texas for its high number of drunk driving fatalities. Driving under the influence of alcohol is not only illegal, but it’s also a grave mistake you can’t take back. It endangers the lives of everyone on the road.

Drivers who get behind the wheel while under the influence are making a foolish choice that deserves to be punished. If a drunk driver wrecks your life by causing an accident, take legal action to protect yourself and others. At Stewart J. Guss, Attorney at Law, our sights are set on justice. Our legal team makes drunk drivers pay for their irresponsible choices behind the wheel, and we aim to see our clients get the money they deserve from a drunk driving accident claim.

Premises Liability Accidents

All Texas businesses, land, and property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises safe for visitors. This means keeping their properties free of dangerous conditions and warning visitors of any hazards they have not yet eliminated.

When careless property owners fail to maintain safe premises for others, they put visitors at risk. They can be held accountable and face legal liability – known as premises liability – when visitors come to harm.

Premises liability accidents can occur anywhere, including at restaurants, bars, shopping malls, theme parks, movie theaters, and private residences. Trips, slips, and falls make up the most common incidents that hurt property visitors, but property owners must also do their part to protect the public from dog bites, accidental drownings, and falling objects.

Everyone stumbles now and again, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that approximately 20% of all falls lead to a severe injury such as head trauma or broken bones. Children and older adults are most vulnerable to injury when they fall. 95% of hip fractures occur due to falls, and more than three million elders receive treatment for fall injuries each year in emergency rooms across our nation.

Whether you suffer a slip and fall or some other type of accident on a negligent party’s property, contact the team at Stewart J. Guss, Attorney at Law to learn about your options. We can help you seek damages from the property owner.

Construction Accidents

The Greater Houston area continues to grow, making construction a part of the city’s daily life. Construction workers who build roads, construct a high rise, or put the finishing touches on a new home, all have inherently dangerous jobs. They know the importance of following strict safety protocols on a job site to protect their own health and safety.

Still, accidents happen, and construction workers get hurt. Some of the hazards that can lead to injury on a construction job include exposure to harmful chemicals or substances, heavy equipment failure, falling objects, slip and falls, and electrocution, just to name just a few.

If you sustain an injury at work, you likely have the right to receive substantial workers’ compensation benefits.

In an ideal world, you could count on receiving those benefits without any problem. Unfortunately, the process of applying for benefits and getting the money you deserve from workers’ comp does not always go smoothly. Some employers break the law by failing to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Others retaliate illegally against employees who apply for workers’ comp benefits.

The experienced accident injury lawyers at Stewart J. Guss, Attorney at Law, have the experience and know-how to get construction workers the benefits they deserve for worksite injuries. If you were hurt on the job, reach out now for legal aid.
