Jefferson County Injury Lawyer

Jefferson County is located in southeastern part of Texas in the high plains of the state, and bordering the Gulf of Mexico on its southern edge. The County is named for the 3rd U.S. President and founding father, Thomas Jefferson.

Much of the southern part of Jefferson County is marshland, and is bordered on the north by Pine Island Bayou, on the northeast by the Neches River, and on the east by Sabine Lake. The county also has several major roads passing through its lands, including U.S. Interstate 10, which starts out west in California and carries a lot of traffic and traverses the entire country, U.S. Highways 69,96 and 287, as well as Texas state highway 105.

Jefferson County has a total land area of 1,111 square miles, but about 19% of this land (208 square miles) is covered with water or marshland. That means there is less actual land mass for the larger highways to traverse, leading to a higher incidence of traffic accidents. Interstate 10 which is a huge cross-country highway, particularly increases the risk of traffic accidents in this area, because a large number of people traveling on Interstate 10 are out-of-towners just passing through, and unfamiliar with the roads and the area.
