Car Accidents in Texas
Roughly every two minutes, a motor vehicle accident resulting in injuries is reported somewhere in Texas. These accidents add up to hundreds of thousands of collisions on our roadways annually. Tens of thousands of people involved in these accidents are left with severe injuries that affect their lives indefinitely. Unfortunately, we see many victims left with:
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Internal Organ Damage
- Multiple Fractures or Broken Bones
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Severe Burns
Any injury has the potential to cause severe disruptions in a victim’s life. After being hurt in a car crash, victims are able to take legal action against those responsible.
Causes of Car Crashes
Car crashes in Texas are often attributed to a combination of negligent and reckless actions. In many cases, these can include distractions, impairment, and speeding. Texting on the phone, talking, or even switching a GPS system can divert a driver’s attention from the road, which increases the risk of accidents. Impaired driving, often due to alcohol or drugs, can severely impact the driver’s coordination and judgment, which can lead to a higher likelihood of crashes.
Unfortunately, speeding just increases the chances of an accident taking place due to it negatively affecting a driver’s ability to stop their vehicle in time to avoid a collision. In addition, we see many accidents take place as a result of failing to yield, running red lights, and other negligent actions. Victims of car crashes should seek the assistance of a Texas car accident lawyer to protect their legal rights. An experienced attorney can help you build a strong case and pursue the compensation that you deserve for your injuries and damages.
