Car Wrecks in Texas

Fatal Car Accidents

During every day in 2023, a traffic fatality occurred on a Texas road. Texas has often ranked close to the top or at the top of the 50 states for traffic fatalities. Many of these accidents occur due to speeding.

The havoc resulting from a car accident can be overwhelming, even without fatalities. Complications frequently arise. Despite it being obvious that another driver was at fault, their insurance company generally tries to lower the payout or deny they caused the accident. As an accident victim, this can result in not having money to cover your hospital bills, rehab treatment, lost wages from missing work and other expenses.

 

Get help from a personal injury attorney

By having an attorney, you level the playing field with insurance companies. When handling your case, the lawyer will:

  • Gather evidence from the car crash scene
  • Deal with calls from insurance claims adjusters
  • Handle insurance company negotiations or negotiations with other parties
  • Calculate the total extent of your damages to determine fair compensation
  • Prepare your case for trial to gain leverage over insurance companies

Rear end accidents

A rear end accident occurs when a car following another car fails to stop and crashes into the car ahead of it. Rear end accidents are the most common type of vehicle collision. In most cases, the driver at fault for causing the accident is the driver who rear ends the car in front.

Distractions when driving

Distracted driving accidents are increasingly common. Cell phones have become an added risk to driving as one of the distractions that take a driver’s attention off the road. Whenever drivers fail to pay attention to other drivers, road conditions or traffic, the chances increase for causing an accident. Texting while driving is one of the worst distractions because drivers become distracted in three ways: visually, cognitively and manually.

Drunk driving accident lawyer

Another significant percentage of car wrecks occur due to drunk driving. In fact, TXDOT reported that drivers under the influence of alcohol killed 1,077 people in vehicle accidents in 2021. Compared with all the people who died in Texas traffic crashes, this statistic was 24 percent.
