Car Accidents in Texas

In 2022, Texas faced a significant number of individuals—over 244,000—suffering injuries from car accidents. The reality is that at least one crash with injuries occurred nearly every two minutes and nine seconds.

Despite the frequency of these incidents, the true impact of an automobile accident on one’s life remains unpredictable. Preparing for the consequences of such an event can prove incredibly challenging.

Those involved in car crashes often endure serious injuries, including spinal cord injuries, severe compound fractures, traumatic brain injuries, and injuries to internal organs. Unfortunately, any of these injuries can require extensive medical care. Many car crash victims find themselves navigating both immediate and long-term treatment for the injuries they have sustained. Compounding this difficulty is the fact that many crashes stem from negligence, further complicating matters.

What are the Leading Causes of Crashes?

Numerous acts of negligence contribute to the persistently high rate of automobile collisions reported in Texas each year. Some of the most prevalent causes include:

  • Distractions: When drivers fail to pay attention to the road ahead, they risk colliding with nearby vehicles, causing extensive damage and harm. Common distractions include food, cell phones, and even passengers.
  • Driver Fatigue: Operating a vehicle while fatigued significantly impairs a driver’s ability to operate responsibly. Fatigued driving increases the likelihood of a driver falling asleep at the wheel and drifting into another lane.
  • Reckless Actions: Drivers who engage in reckless behavior behind the wheel often cause severe consequences. Unfortunately, we witness many crashes stemming from drivers who swerve between lanes, tailgate, and engage in other reckless actions.

If you have suffered harm due to another person’s negligence, it’s imperative to seek guidance from a Texas car accident lawyer without delay.
