Car Accidents in Texas
The state of Texas is no stranger to motor vehicle accidents. In fact, one accident happens roughly every 2.5 minutes that ends in injuries. These incidents add up to more than 205,000 people left with injuries each year. Although many crashes result in minor injuries for those involved, a significant number of parties sustain severe injuries that require emergency medical care.
Some of the most common contributing factors to crashes in our state include:
Distraction: We see many accidents take place due to drivers who are using their cell phones. In other instances, drivers are distracted by food, radios, and even their passengers. Taking your attention off the road for a moment can have severe consequences.
Speeding: We see many drivers go above the speed limits while traveling along our roadways. When drivers are traveling at high rates of speed, they are likely to lose control of their vehicles and have problems stopping in time to avoid a crash.
