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.
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.
