Car Accidents in Texas

Each year, tens of thousands of victims sustain injuries as a result of auto collisions that take place in Texas. Those involved in these accidents are left with severe trauma to the head, broken bones, and other significant injuries that require medical care.

Although accidents can take place at any location, more than one-third of all collisions take place at intersections. Regrettably, any type of accident can have severe consequences. As you can imagine, acts of negligence contribute to a significant number of these accidents taking place.

Common Causes of Crashes

There are several factors that contribute to car crashes here in Texas. The most common include:

  • Impaired Driving: Driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs significantly impacts a driver’s ability to react and make sound decisions.
  • Distracted Driving: This can include engaging in actions like texting, using a phone, eating, or adjusting the radio while driving.
  • Speeding: Exceeding the posted speed limit or driving too fast for road and weather conditions is a leading cause of accidents.

Regrettably, any reckless action can lead to a severe car crash that causes injuries. If you have been hurt due to a vehicle collision, you should seek help from a dedicated Texas car accident lawyer immediately. You may have legal options available.
