Houston, TX (June 18, 2021) - At least one person has lost their life after a fatal accident occurred on I-10 Katy Freeway just before 5:45 a.m. on the morning of June 18. The main lanes of the freeway were closed for over three hours as police and paramedics worked to clear the scene.
The circumstances of the collision remain unclear at this time. Paramedics were dispatched to the crash site in order to help those in need. The identity of the deceased has not been disclosed at this time.
Traffic was diverted from all main lanes of the Katy Freeway onto Eldridge Road. Delays were expected due to heavy blockage on the feeder road.
No further information has been released at this time.
We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased.
Houston Car Accidents
Over the past five years, Houston has seen approximately 45,000 car accidents occur per year. With its growing population and sprawling suburbs, congestion on the freeways and roads is par for the course in Texas’ largest city. Houston has long been a commuter city in which 9 out of 10 citizens drive their own vehicles to work each day. While improvements to the roads and an increased law enforcement presence have helped lower the number of traffic collisions that take place, car wrecks still happen too often, many of which are not just simple fender benders.
After a Houston car accident, you may be wondering how you are going to pay your medical bills. You may also be questioning whether or not you’ll be able to be compensated for the costs and expenses associated with your crash. The answers to these questions and more can be found by contacting Farah Law in Houston. We will evaluate your case, assist you with filing a claim, and ensure that you are able to collect full and fair financial compensation based on the circumstances of your wreck.
It is important to remember to avoid admitting liability to anyone about your crash, especially not the other person involved or the insurance company. It is best to wait for the direction and assistance of a Houston personal injury attorney who will negotiate with the insurance company so you do not get taken advantage of. Oftentimes, insurance companies attempt to offer accident victims meager settlement amounts or totally ignore them all together. When you work with a lawyer from Farah Law, we will ensure that you are treated fairly by the insurance companies.
An attorney will be able to tell you when to file your claim, what to say to the insurance company/other party involved in your crash, and what specific information to use in order for you to get the maximum compensation amount available for your injuries and losses. The amount of compensation a person receives depends on the severity of their injuries and the situation that caused them. Accidents may leave victims with rehabilitation costs, lost wages, and medical expenses. Victims may also be faced with emotional injuries like post-traumatic stress disorder after being involved in a severe collision. Some of these areas may not be readily compensated for by the insurance companies, which is why it is helpful to speak with a skilled and experienced car accident attorney in Houston like the ones at Farah Law.
