Aftermath of a car wreck in Houston, TexasIn December 2022, a negligent driver seriously injured a Houston woman when he ran a red light and slammed head-on into her car. While she recovered from the crash, she called upon our experienced car wreck attorneys at The Button Law Firm. We fought to secure a recovery for her that holds the driver accountable and helps her move forward from her extensive injuries and damages. 

How a Negligent Driver Seriously Injured a Houston Woman

The wreck caused by the negligent driver deployed the airbags in our client’s car and completely disabled the vehicle. The forceful impact left our client with extensive and severe injuries.

She was rushed from the scene to a local emergency room, where she was diagnosed with acute midbody fractures to the ribs on the right side of her body. Doctors also found she suffered from a muscle spasm that they determined was caused by the wreck.

Experiencing persistent pain, our client sought additional follow-up treatment at a local clinic. There, she was diagnosed with sprains to the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, as well as sprains to her right hip, knee, ankle, and shoulder joint. Doctors at the clinic recommended she undergo physical therapy and rehabilitation.

At a Houston-area facility, she completed more than four months of physical therapy to rehabilitate the injured parts of her body and treat her persistent pain by using e-stimulation, joint mobilization, myofascial release, ultrasounds, and group therapy techniques.

Moving Forward: How the Recovery Secured by The Button Law Firm Helped Our Client

As you can imagine, the Houston woman’s long-term treatments to mend her extensive injuries were expensive but necessary.

In addition to the physical injuries, her life was significantly disrupted. The wreck left her with permanent damage to her spine and right shoulder; even with all of the medical care that she received, she was unable to reverse the damage caused by the negligent driver. These permanent injuries cause her to endure immense pain and mental stress. 

We fought to ensure that our client recovered as much as possible of what she physically and emotionally lost from the crash. Thanks to the settlement secured by our firm, this woman was able to recoup her costly medical expenses and move forward with her life.

The Importance of Carrying Underinsured Motorist Coverage in Texas

Underinsured motorist coverage (UIM) is a vital component of auto insurance policies, offering essential protection in accidents involving drivers who are uninsured or underinsured. This coverage ensures that individuals injured by negligent drivers can still receive recovery for medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages, even if the at-fault driver lacks sufficient insurance. By bridging the gap left by an underinsured motorist, UIM helps prevent financial hardship and allows victims to focus on their recovery without the added stress of financial strain. Overall, UIM provides a crucial safety net, promoting greater security and peace of mind on the road.
