As one of leading causes of death and
personal injury in the United States, car accidents have become a daily occurrence on our roads and highways. When accidents result in injuries, the consequences can be devastating.

Legal Services for Auto Accident Victims in Houston, TX
Some of the cases we handle include:
Drunk Driving Accidents
Drunk drivers claim thousands of lives each year. In fact, about one-third of traffic fatalities in the U.S. involve a driver who has an illegal blood alcohol concentration of .08% or greater. If you were struck by a drunk driver, call a lawyer at our firm to discuss your rights.
Distracted Driving Accidents
Texting, talking on the phone, applying make-up, looking at an in-vehicle navigation system - the distractions available to today's drivers place everyone at risk. If you were injured by a distracted driver, talk to an attorney at our firm about holding this person liable.
Single Vehicle Accidents
Collisions involving a single vehicle present a unique challenge for a victim. If you were driving the vehicle, you may consider that only you can be held accountable for the accident. This may not be the case. There may be a third party, or at the very least our firm can help you seek maximum compensation from your own insurance policy.
Car accidents involving two or more vehicles are classified as multi-vehicle accidents. These require thorough investigations to determine cause and which driver or drivers (or other parties) should be held accountable. With our experience, we can accurately determine liability.
One of the most serious types of car accidents, head-on collisions have the potential to cause catastrophic physical injuries or even death. We are prepared to fight for victims of these collisions.
Some may say that fault in a rear-end accident always lies with the driver of the second vehicle, which struck the rear of the first vehicle. This may not always be the case. Allowing a skilled professional to evaluate your case can ensure the right party is held responsible.
When a vehicle rolls over as the result of a collision, any occupants may be seriously injured. These cases may also bring about questions of vehicle crashworthiness. Though rollover claims and lawsuits have the potential to be highly complex, our team is prepared to provide competent counsel.
Accidents Caused by Mechanical Failure
Some car accidents are caused not by driver error or negligence but by defective or poorly designed vehicle parts. Our team takes on cases for clients who have been injured in accidents caused by defective auto parts, seeking to hold negligent manufacturers accountable.
No matter the nature of your car accident, our attorneys are capable of evaluating your case, determining the extent of liability involved, and working diligently to file a successful claim. Do not allow yourself to believe that your claim will be resolved automatically or fairly without an attorney's help – you may need a legal professional to protect your rights.

Injured in a car accident in Houston? Involve an attorney at Stern Law Group.
When you are injured in a car accident caused by the negligence of another driver, you must be able to establish liability, also known as fault, on the part of the other driver. This is not an easy or simple process. Even if you were in no way at fault for causing your accident, insurance companies will do whatever they can to shift blame away from their drivers and transfer as least some percentage of fault to you. This can result in unfair compensation, and in some cases may result in you being held liable for causing the accident.
