11 vehicle wreck shuts down Beltway 8 this morning

Houston’s rush hour abruptly ground to a halt for many motorists this morning when all westbound lanes of Beltway 8 were shut down for about an hour due to an eleven vehicle wreck at Aldine Westfield. A motorcyclist may have been involved in the collision. Channel 13’s very brief report of the accident is here and Channel 11’s report is here.

Car accidents commonly result in medical bills, lost income from work and a period of time after the accident when the injured person is in pain and is impaired from performing their normal activities. Texas law allows a person injured in a motor vehicle accident by another’s negligence to seek recovery of money damages.  Speaking to an experienced Houston personal injury attorney early in the process can make the difference between a relatively straightforward claim under the other driver’s insurance policy and a real nightmare.  Insurance companies will deny or undervalue claims if they have a reason to.  Smith & Hassler’s trial-tested Houston personal injury attorneys will provide you with a free consultation regarding your motor vehicle accident injury claim: call now or submit your case online.
