Happy Labor Day, Austin!

Though this means the official end of summer (in terms of the calendar year, not the weather–as only Texans know) this also means the start of the football season.

According to last year’s statistics on Occupational Health & Safety Online, “…the Labor Day weekend has averaged 14.6 percent more traffic fatalities than similar non-holiday periods, according to the council, which estimated 142 people “may survive the holiday weekend because they will have worn safety belts, while another 102 lives would have been saved if all had worn safety belts.” Labor Day weekend is one of the busiest and deadliest times on U.S. roadways…”

If you find yourself, or someone dear to you, in a motor vehicle collision, take the following steps:

  1. Gather and keep all information related to your automobile accident. This includes date, time, and location of the accident; insurance information on each vehicle; driver’s license information; pictures of the vehicle and of any injuries that occurred; and medical receipts.
  2. Take care of your well-being. If you are injured, seek medical attention as soon as possible. Keep in mind that though you may not see or feel anything immediately after the accident, the pain in your head, neck, back, arms, etc., may resurface a few days to a few weeks after the collision.
  3. Call Lee, Gober & Reyna. You will need an attorney experienced and knowledgeable of the personal injury process and we can help you recover your loss(es).

We at Lee, Gober & Reyna would like to kindly remind all those participating in events prior, during, and after the football games to have fun and be safe.
