A personal injury attorney working in your corner will vastly increase the financial settlement that you take home and use towards your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage.
Vehicles Slam into Walls, Fall Off North Freeway Overpass, Close Down Lanes
A recent wreck on North Freeway was so powerful that when the vehicle slammed into a center barrier wall, it pushed the concrete slab into the other lane of traffic, according to ABC 13 Eyewitness News. Collisions such as this often cause serious, disabling injuries.
Sometimes, collisions happen from above on an overpass, which affects the freeway traffic underneath. Such was the case when a vehicle slammed into a wall on an overpass above I-45 North, and fell onto the freeway, blocking lanes and creating a road hazard for those traveling on the freeway, as reported by Click 2 Houston.
