Houston Auto Accident Lawyer Johnson Law Group Sees Increase in Automobile Accident Cases

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - October 16, 2007) - Houston auto accident lawyer Nick Johnson of Johnson Law Group, with principal offices in Houston, Texas, says that despite the decrease in overall injury-related accidents in the US, there is no downtrend to the lawsuits being filed over automobile accident cases.

"The number of overall automobile accidents involving injuries and fatalities in the United States has been trending downward for the last few years," says Johnson. "But we're seeing an overall increase in the number of lawsuits being filed here in Texas."

Johnson believes the reasons for this are varied, but cites the large number of uninsured motorists on the road in Texas as one of the biggest factors.

The Texas Department of Public Safety estimates that the number of uninsured motorists is at least 20% of the overall population of Texas, but researchers admit that the real number is difficult to obtain. According to an article in the Dallas Morning News, insurance companies estimate that Texas drivers shell out nearly $900 million a year to protect themselves against those without coverage.

Johnson Law Group is headquartered in Houston, Texas, and practices in all areas of personal injury law and focuses on rollover/car accidents, maritime, offshore oil rig accidents, mesothelioma lung cancer, PPH/Fen Phen, Paxil pharmaceutical cases, patent infringement, Avandia and nursing home abuse in more than 20 U.S. states and Mexico.
