Accidents that involve extensive injuries are encouraged to contact legal counsel due to the amount of damages that come from an accident that causes such fatalities. An attorney can deal with insurance adjusters for you, negotiate settlements, and represent your best interests if a lawsuit is needed. Because this accident resulted in four different people becoming injured, multiple claims will be filed and it’s necessary to hire an attorney to help with those claims.

 If you or a loved one were involved in a car accident, immediately contact a legal expert to help you evaluate your options. Call car accident attorneys Sutliff & Stout at (713) 987-7111 or send us an email to discuss your car accident injury case.
