Car Accidents in Texas
Nearly 4,000 people are injured in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Texas every week. These accidents often leave victims with debilitating injuries that require extensive medical care.
Although most drivers are considerate of others, we see many accidents take place due to driver errors. When vehicles follow too closely, they run the risk of not being able to stop in time to avoid a collision. Rear-end collisions account for around 29% of total collisions every year in the United States.
In San Antonio, we see countless people suffer back and neck injuries, broken bones, and other severe injuries in these collisions. These and other injuries often require immediate medical attention. In some cases, victims have to go through long-term care. Not only are injuries incredibly painful and debilitating, but they are often costly to treat.
When victims are hurt in collisions, they should seek the assistance of a car accident lawyer in San Antonio as soon as possible. In some cases, victims may have legal options available to help them move forward and hold negligent parties accountable for their actions.
