As anyone who has ever traversed the West side of Sam Houston and has seen the carnage of a crash off to the shoulder of the road can tell you, the scene is often horrendous. Serious collisions call for serious compensation, which a Houston attorney can help you recover.

The interchanges at Beltway 8 West and Interstate 10 on the west side of Houston are some of the busiest in the country.
