Car Accidents in Texas

In 2022, more than 244,000 people were injured in automobile accidents in Texas. These incidents add up to one crash being reported nearly every two minutes and one person being injured every two minutes and nine seconds.

  • Severe compound fractures

Any injury, regardless of its nature, may require comprehensive medical attention. Car crash survivors often face a challenging journey of receiving both immediate and prolonged medical care for their injuries. Adding to the complexity, a significant number of accidents stem from acts of negligence.

Common Causes of Crashes

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

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