Car Accidents in Texas
Automobile accidents occur far too often in Texas. Unfortunately, more than 200,000 people are injured as a result of these accidents every year. A significant number of accidents reported in the state occur at intersections. These accidents account for tens of thousands of injury accidents in nearly 32 percent of all fatal crashes reported statewide.
There are many reasons why accidents occur at intersections. Many of these accidents take place because of drivers who are distracted, drivers who run red lights, and drivers who pass stop signs. Unfortunately, the consequences of a car crash can be disastrous.
What Evidence Should I Gather to Support My Personal Injury Claim?
After being involved in a car crash, you have the ability to recover compensation by filing a personal injury claim. In order to prevail, you must have strong evidence against the defendant. Some of the evidence that you should gather for your personal injury claim includes:
- Police reports
