Houston is the 4th most populous city in the United States. In 2019 the population was over 2,320,268, with a 10.7% increase in population from 2019 to 2020. Nicknamed the “Bayou City,” “Space City,” “H-Town,” and “the 713,” Houston is a global city, having strengths in medicine, research, culture, food, and more. Houston is rapidly growing and is praised for being a diverse metropolitan area in Texas, with various ethnic and religious backgrounds along with a large and growing international community.
Houston’s growth has been accompanied by more traffic and an increase in car accidents. Even with proposed statewide hands-free laws, lowered speed limits, and improved or updated signs on the roads, Houston remains one of the most dangerous places to drive in the U.S. In 2019 the congestion level in the city was reported to be 24%. Rush hour congestion level is averaged at 43% but can be as high as 60%, where you should plan for a 30 minute commute to take roughly 50-60 minutes. Our Houston car accident lawyers are committed to helping individuals and families who have been harmed by another driver’s carelessness or disregard for safety. At-fault drivers and their insurance companies should be held accountable for the damages they cause.
