Why you need a Lawyer
Sometimes it may be difficult to determine just who is at fault in an accident and how much compensation you can get in a case. Many people hire a lawyer just so they can sort out the legal details. Take the case of a woman who had a seizure and crashed into a home. The Houston Police Department reported that a car crashed into a home around 8 AM near East 43rd Street. The car hit a tree in the yard then crashed into the home. A woman inside of the home was injured, but the driver was not. While the driver was definitely at fault, the fact that she had a seizure that lead to the accident doesn’t make it as cut and dry as say a DUI case. If the driver had been drunk or speeding, it would be very easy to go for a lot of damages. The lawyers involved in this case would have to look into things like the driver’s medical history as well as the insurance status of the home and the injuries that occurred to the woman inside the home.
