Vehicle Accidents in Texas
In 2017, studies documented a total of 3,700 car accident fatalities in Texas, which increased by 10 percent compared to the year prior. Most of these dangerous accidents are caused by drivers not focusing on the roads. All it takes is a few seconds of a distraction for a fatal accident to occur. There are some cases where the driver’s vehicle suffers from mechanical errors, such as a flat tire or faulty brakes, which are responsible for causing car accidents as well.
