Car Accidents in Texas
Every month, more than 17,100 people are left with injuries following motor vehicle accidents across our state. In many cases, victims have to go through extensive medical treatment and spend weeks off work to recover. Dealing with painful injuries is not something that most people are prepared to do. Dealing with the financial consequences that come with treating injuries can be downright devastating.
Some of the most common contributing factors to crashes in our state include:
Impairment: Many drivers are involved in crashes due to other people who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Driving while impaired significantly increases the chances of a motorist losing control of their vehicles and causing devastating crashes.
Speeding: We see many motorists go above the speed limits while traveling along our roadways. When people are traveling at high rates of speed, they are likely to lose control of their cars and have problems stopping in time to avoid a crash.
Distraction: We see many crashes 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.
