Car Accidents in Texas

Automobile accidents that result in injuries in Texas are reported every two minutes. Unfortunately, a significant number of these accidents leave victims with injuries that affect their lives forever. It is too common to see victims left with trauma to the head, severe compound fractures, and other injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Regrettably, many of these accidents take place as a result of negligence.

What are the Leading Causes of Crashes?

There are various acts of negligence that continue to contribute to the high rate of automobile collisions reported in Texas every year. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Distractions: When drivers are not paying attention to the road ahead of them, they will not see other cars nearby. As a result, they are likely to strike them and cause severe damage and harm. Common distractions include food, cell phones, and even passengers.
  • Driver Fatigue: When drivers get behind the wheel while tired, they may not be able to operate their vehicle responsibly. Driving while fatigued increases the likelihood that a driver will fall asleep and drift into another lane.
  • Reckless Actions: When drivers are reckless behind the wheel, it can have severe consequences. Unfortunately, we see many crashes take place as a result of drivers who swerve between lanes, tailgate, and engage in other reckless actions.

If another person’s negligence has caused you harm, you need to seek guidance from an Austin car accident lawyer right away.
