A study led by Dr. Motao Zhu of the Department of Epidemiology and Injury Control Research Center at West Virginia University discovered that 2.3 times more male pedestrians die in vehicle-pedestrian collisions around the world than women. Pedestrians make up a third of the 1.2 million traffic fatalities every year but for some unknown reason, men seem to be more at risk. These figures don’t account for the huge number of traffic injuries that occur all around the world and cause so many personal injury claims to be pursued, like those dealt with by the Gomez law Firm in Houston, Texas.

The Gomez Law Firm is a reputable law firm that has built a solid foundation on its tendency to approach all representations with vigor and energy while showing a level of dedication rarely seen in the legal world. In addition to that, the Gomez Law Firm is known for its competent and skillful Houston personal injury attorneys. Known throughout the legal world, the Gomez Law Firm is also in the hands of a highly experienced and motivated Houston personal injury lawyer – Jorge L. Gomez.

Jorge L. Gomez is a Houston personal injury attorney with over 15 years experience in the legal industry and has litigated thousands of personal injury cases right across Texas. His personal success record speaks for itself as he has an almost flawless record when it comes to winning compensation for his clients. There is no doubt that with Jorge L. Gomez at the helm, leading the way, the Gomez Law Firm will progress quickly and become one of the leading law firms in Houston.

Although traffic accidents are decreasing gradually in Texas, there are still enough personal injury claims to keep the Gomez Law Firm busy. As a Houston personal injury attorney, Gomez has tried to verdict, over fifty jury trials in personal injury trial law and was also named a Super Lawyer and Rising Star by Texas monthly.

Although the war on dangerous driving in Houston is slowly proving to be a success, there are still an unacceptable number of wrongful deaths or injuries caused by traffic accidents. The Gomez Law Firm represents clients in Houston, Brownsville and all over Houston in helping to win compensation for personal injury claims.
