Texas Highway Accident Attorneys
Wichita Falls car accident lawyers who put your needs first
Highway accidents are devastating. One moment you’re cruising down US 277 or 287 and the next you’re rear-ended by a semi-truck, T-boned at the exit ramp, or sideswiped by a reckless driver crossing multiple lanes to “make the exit” that they’ve already missed. The results are horrific.
Many injured victims find themselves in a bad situation. You’re in too much agony to work or maybe even complete normal tasks. Funds are running low and the accident-related medical bills are rolling in. You’re under a lot of pressure to get a substantial settlement. But that means coming out on top in negotiations with an insurance adjuster who wants to pay you as little as possible. This is not a fair fight, but we can fix that.

In the meantime, here’s what you need to know about highway car accidents in Wichita Falls and Wichita County and why they happen.
Where do fatal highway accidents happen?
In Wichita Falls, more fatal accidents happen on state highways, interstates, and farm to market (FM) roads than county roads, city streets, and other types of roadways, according to state data. That’s because highways are more travelled and cars are going faster, which increases the severity of injuries.
Over the last several years, fatal highway accidents have occurred on:
- I-44 in Burkburnett
- US 277 (I-44) in Wichita Falls
- FM 47 in Jolly
- US 287 in Henrietta
- US 70 in Vernon
What causes highway accidents?
While speed is a major factor, highway accidents are also caused by driver error, road design, and sudden changes in traffic or roadway surface. Factors that often contribute to highway accidents include:
- Alcohol and drug use
- Road rage
- Drowsy driving
- Bottleneck or zipper collisions (When vehicles are unexpectedly forced to combine lanes due to road construction, a bottleneck accident may occur. Rear-end crashes often happen in these situations.)
- Nighttime and lack of highway street lighting
- Unsafe lane changes
- Animals and road debris
- Bad weather, standing water puddles, low visibility
Our car accident lawyers have extensive experience handling cases like these. We have recovered millions of dollars for injured accident victims.
Common highway accident injuries
When highway accidents aren’t fatal, the injuries are frequently severe. Here are some of the most common highway accident injuries:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) like hemorrhages, bruising, puncture, and concussions
- Whiplash, neck and back pain
- Slipped, herniated, or bulging discs, fractured vertebrae
- Spinal cord damage
- Pinched nerves
- Dislocated shoulder or knee
- Eye injuries
- Severed nerves
- Broken bones
Even with the best of care, highway crash victims often suffer from lifelong physical and/or mental disabilities and chronic pain. That’s why it is vital that you get the compensation you deserve. You didn’t cause the accident; you shouldn’t have to pay for care out of your own pocket. Hoover Rogers Law can take on the insurance company for you so that you can be confident your claim is moving forward while you heal.
How much compensation can I get for a highway accident?
It is common for insurance companies to settle highway accidents for tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars. The size of your settlement is influenced by injury severity, medical treatment, duration of disabilities, impact on quality of life, and future crash-related health needs. Your settlement should cover:
- Past and future crash-related medical expenses including the possibility of multiple surgeries
- Physical therapy
- Pain and suffering
- Disability equipment and replacement services
- Lost wages and the possibility of diminished future earnings
Ultimately, the quality of your legal representation can make or break your claim. Our law firm puts the highest value on your health and comfort. We build strong cases that demand maximum compensation.
