The Damages You Can Recover in Your Houston US-290 Accident Case
Long-term construction and a bustling commercial trucking industry contribute to near-constant traffic congestion on US-290, despite recent improvements to widen the highway. With that much traffic, highway collisions and catastrophic injuries are more likely.
As a result of your accident, you could be eligible to recover these types of damages:
- Pain and suffering
- Physical impairment and disfigurement
- Mental suffering and emotional trauma
- Loss of enjoyment in life
- Loss of earning capacity
- Income lost during your recovery
- Property expenses, including the cost to repair or replace your vehicle
- Medical expenses
Wrongful Death Damages
If you lost a family member in the accident, we are so sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one is complex. Not only are you dealing with the loss of an important relationship, but you may be struggling to make up for the financial hole the loss of an income created.
While you grieve and recover, you shouldn’t have to worry about the legal process, too. Our attorneys can handle your case as we pursue wrongful death damages, such as:
- Mental suffering and emotional trauma
- Funeral and burial/cremation expenses
- Lost income for your family
- Property and medical expenses
- The loss of counsel, support, and love your family member provided
The Assistance You Can Expect from Your US-290 Accident Lawyer in Houston
You deserve appropriate compensation for the suffering you’ve endured. If recovering an adequate financial award takes us to the courtroom, we will not back down. So you can focus entirely on health and family matters, your lawyer will handle everything involved in filing and resolving your case.
Filing Your Case
One of the first things your lawyer will do is itemize your damages and assign them a monetary value. It may be difficult for you to assign a value to non-economic damages on your own. Through conversations with our team, you may discover that we can include some of your unique and personal losses in the case.
To demonstrate the value of your losses, our team will collect evidence of your financial and personal suffering. For example, your lawyer may use your medical bills and your physician’s expert testimony to testify to the value of your current and future medical treatment.
To establish liability for your damages, your lawyer will seek out and show evidence of negligence, such as photo or video evidence. The evidence could show that a driver, a trucking company, or even the city government is liable. Then, your lawyer will use the information we collect to show:
- The liable party acted in a way that is contrary to how another reasonable person would act, such as by cutting you off in traffic.
- The dangerous driving caused your collision.
- The accident resulted in injuries and other losses.
Resolving Your Case
To ensure we have the opportunity to resolve your case in court, if necessary, your lawyer will prepare to meet the deadline for a highway accident lawsuit, per the Texas statute of limitations. However, your lawyer will steer your case toward a settlement when possible.
To accomplish that, we will negotiate with the other party’s insurance company in order to reach a settlement agreement. If the insurer doesn’t negotiate in good faith, or if it is otherwise in your best interest to pursue a lawsuit, we will initiate court proceedings on your behalf.
We handle cases that proceed to court a little differently. However, we will make sure to prepare you for the proceedings as we make your case to the judge or jury.

Common Highway Accident Injuries
Collisions on highways are often more severe than accidents that occur in the city or in rural areas as vehicles are traveling at higher speeds. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) states that increasing speeds relates to both the heightened likelihood of a crash and serious/fatal injuries.
These high-speed crashes result in a few common catastrophic injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries (SCI)
- Chest and lung injuries
You shouldn’t have to suffer the financial repercussions of someone else’s negligence. We want to help you pursue the costs of treating your injuries from the at-fault party.
