Austin car accident lawyer Joe Lopez

Austin is a city known and beloved for its unique counterculture, music scene, and unfortunately, its high car accident rate. Texas, and Austin in particular, is notorious for its high rate of auto accidents stemming from crowded highways, distracted drivers, and many other outside circumstances. If you are searching for an Austin Car Accident Attorney, we are here to help.

The city of Austin, Texas is the state capital of Texas, and the fourth-largest city in our state. Located in Travis County, it remains one of the fastest-growing big cities in the United States. Every year, Austin welcomes nearly 20 million tourists, a number that exceeds those visiting Disneyland, which had 16.2 million visitors in 2013, the Eiffel Tower, which has about 7 million visitors annually, and Niagara Falls, which has about 12 million tourists each year.

TEXAS CAR CRASHES

Texas has held the lead for the number of statewide auto accidents. While the state is the largest in the continental United States, this does not factor into the high rate of car crashes per population size. Texas Department of Transportation statistics for the number of fatal car crashes increased by 400 from 2011 to 2012. And in 2014, there were no deathless days on the Texas highways. The total number of traffic fatalities due to car crashes was 3,534 in 2014, with 667 coming from drivers under the influence.

Joe Lopez has helped many central Texans in car accident cases from beginning to end. He has fought against insurance companies to make sure his clients receive the protection they are entitled to. Insurance companies are often hesitant to pay out large sums to injured clients.
