WCA Waste Corporation big rig involved in crash at 610 Loop and Ella

At approximately 8:15am this morning a serious accident happened on the North 610 Loop West in the westbound lanes, just across the Loop from Smith & Hassler’s office. The wreck involved a WCA Waste Corporation 18-wheeler and a black colored pickup truck.  The pickup truck sustained very heavy front end damage: the airbag was deployed and the fire department removed the driver’s door of the pickup truck. Hopefully the driver of the pickup truck and any passengers were not seriously hurt. Fortunately Memorial Hermann Northwest Hospital is less than half a mile from the scene of the wreck.

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.
