Motor Vehicle Accidents
Houston, Texas, Car Accident Injury Lawyer
Every year, thousands of drivers and passengers are injured on Texas roads because of the negligence or recklessness of other drivers. Many injured people don't realize that they may have a legitimate injury claim for compensation from the negligent driver's insurance company that could be in excess of their initial insurance settlement offer.
Since 1977, Hartley Hampton has helped people and families recover compensation for serious injuries suffered in car, motorcycle, and truck accidents. We also represent people injured while using public transportation, including those involved in bus, airplane, or train accidents.

Do you have a compensation claim?
Sometimes, negligence speaks for itself, as in the case of a drunk-driving accident. At other times, however, liability is harder to prove. Texas law defines “negligence” as "failure to use ordinary care," that is, failing to do that which a person of ordinary prudence would have done under the same or similar circumstances, or doing that which a person of ordinary prudence would not have done under the same or similar circumstances. In addition, auto accidents can be caused by defective car parts, dangerous road conditions, and other situations that may result in a claim for damages.
At Hartley Hampton, P.C., we use proven legal strategies to help our clients seek the compensation they may be entitled to. Our vigorous representation includes relying on the resources of legal, medical, and professional investigators to determine which parties and which insurance companies share liability in your motorcycle, truck, or car accident. An experienced personal injury lawyer can explain how Texas negligence laws will affect your car accident injury claim and whether you have a legitimate claim for additional compensation.
Whether you were injured in a rear-end collision, an alcohol-related accident, or a single car rollover, we can help. Even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you may still be entitled to compensation for damages. Contact car accident attorney Hartley Hampton for a no-cost consultation before you accept any settlement offer from an insurance company.
