Committed Attorneys Serving Personal Injury Victims in Alton, Texas

In 1989, the people of Alton, Texas experienced a tragedy. A school bus with 81 passengers aboard crashed near 5 Mile Line and Bryan Road when a commercial truck driven by an inexperienced driver collided with the vehicle. That tragedy led to an overhaul of bus safety across the country, but accidents like this shouldn’t be allowed to happen in the first place.

The Alton car accident lawyers of J. Gonzalez Injury Attorneys are dedicated to helping the victims of such accidents seek justice, and we would be proud to represent you in civil court. If you or a loved one were involved in a car accident caused by negligence, you don’t have to face the insurance companies and legal system alone.

What to Do in Case of an Accident


If you are involved in an accident, the first thing you should worry about is keeping yourself safe. Make sure you are a safe distance from any oncoming traffic and any potentially dangerous wreckage. Call the police and file a report to document the accident as soon as possible.

If it is safe to do so, the first thing you should do to help your legal claim is to take notes. Record everything you can remember from just before, during, and immediately after the incident. Try to photograph the damaged vehicles, the road conditions, and any other relevant information that could explain the root of the accident and how it caused your injuries.

Next, you’ll want to acquire the contact information from any potential witnesses, as their testimony may be important to your case. If you aren’t able to do this yourself because of an injury, don’t hesitate to ask a loved one for help. Once you are able to, you may need to seek legal representation.

    Types of Damages Awarded for Car Accidents

    There are two different types of damages that may be available if you have been in an accident:

    • Economic damages — This category includes any losses that can be calculated precisely with sufficient documentation such as lost wages, lost earning potential, and medical expenses.
    • Non-economic damages — This category includes any type of loss that doesn’t have an exact monetary value. Mental anguish, pain and suffering, loss of close relationships (consortium), and reduced quality of life are all covered by this category.
