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. These accidents are often caused by the reckless actions of other motorists. Some of the leading causes of crashes include:
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Disregarding traffic control devices
Although we can be careful to ensure the safety of others, there is no guarantee that other motorists are going to provide us with the same consideration. Instead, we see many people left with severe injuries that negatively impact their health and wellbeing.
