Car Accidents in Texas

Auto accidents across the state of Texas are the cause of tens of thousands of serious injuries every year. Unfortunately, there are many cases where people are hospitalized with severe trauma to the head, internal organ injuries, and other significant injuries that impact their ability to work and enjoy life. Regrettably, the majority of accidents reported in our state are completely preventable.

Common Causes of Car Crashes in Texas

Several factors contribute to the high rate of motor vehicle accidents reported in Texas every year. Impaired driving due to alcohol or drugs is one of the leading causes of accidents on Texas roads. Driving under the influence significantly impairs judgment and coordination, making it extremely risky for both the impaired driver and others sharing the road.

In addition, weather conditions like heavy rain or fog can contribute to car accidents by reducing visibility and creating slippery roads. Drivers must exercise caution during adverse weather conditions by slowing down and increasing following distances between vehicles. If you have been hurt as a result of the crash caused by another driver’s reckless or careless actions, a Texas car accident lawyer can help you protect your rights.
