2 hurt when SUV crashes through wall of Americas Best Value Inn in Galveston

An East Texas woman vacationing in Galveston made an unexpected stop at the Americas Best Value Inn and Suites in Galveston when she accidentally pressed the gas pedal instead of the brake and crashed through the wall of the hotel, injuring two guests. 63-year old Brenda Harvey of Lufkin was the driver of the SUV involved in the crash, which happened Monday July 18, 2011 in the afternoon. The vehicle went through one room of the hotel and then broke through the wall of another room, briefly trapping a hotel guest. One of the injured guests suffered a head injury.

If you, a friend or a family member have been injured in a car accident, Smith & Hassler’s experienced personal injury attorneys are available to give you a free consultation either in-person or by phone.  Sometimes people injured in car accident wait before consulting an attorney. They have good intentions: not wanting to seem “sue happy,” waiting to see if their injuries will get better or because an insurance adjuster is discouraging them from seeking legal advice (that happens).  It is better to know your rights early in the process and have an experienced Houston personal injury attorney explain the steps involved in car accident injury claim and what you can do NOW to increase the chances of a good outcome.
