Car Accidents in Texas
In Texas, we see our fair share of motor vehicle accidents. In fact, roughly every 2.5 minutes, someone is hurt in a traffic-related incident somewhere in our state. These accidents add up to more than 200,000 people every year. Although the majority of accidents end in minor injuries and disruptions for victims, around 15,000 people are hospitalized with severe injuries that require extensive medical care. We see tens of thousands of people suffer life-changing injuries that force them out of work for several weeks to months as they recover. Some of the leading injuries include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Loss of limbs
- Severe burn injuries
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 people are hurt in motor vehicle accidents due to the negligence of others, they often have legal options available to help them move forward.
Not only are these and other severe injuries debilitating, but the costs of treatment can be high. After you leave the hospital, you should reach out to a car accident attorney in San Antonio who can help you recover the compensation you need for these and other expenses you face moving forward.
If you have been injured as a result of another driver’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation to help cover medical expenses, alleviate lost wages, and help cover various economic and non-economic damages you face.
