Car Accidents in Texas
Motor vehicle accidents are a daily occurrence in Texas, sending hundreds of thousands of people to area hospitals with injuries every year. Unfortunately, many people involved in accidents are left with severe injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Suffering significant injuries can impact your ability to work and various aspects of your life. Unfortunately, many accidents are completely preventable.
Common Causes of Car Crashes
Motor vehicle accidents occur for various reasons here in Texas. Many accidents involve some form of negligence. Leading factors include:
- Drunk Driving: Despite strict laws against it, drunk driving remains a major problem in Texas. Impaired drivers pose a significant risk to themselves and others on the road.
- Poor Weather Conditions: Heavy rainstorms and foggy weather can reduce visibility and make roads slick to travel on. This dramatically increases the likelihood of accidents.
- Reckless Driving: Tailgating, changing lanes without signaling, or running red lights are all examples of reckless driving behaviors that can cause serious accidents.
- Fatigue: Drivers who are tired or drowsy have slower reaction times and impaired judgment – factors that significantly contribute to car crashes.
If you were hurt in a car crash caused by the reckless actions of another driver, you may have legal options. It is imperative to seek legal assistance right away from a car accident lawyer in Texas.
