Fatal Collisions In Texas
Studies found that over 2,800 children under 15-years-old died in motor vehicle accidents across the United States between 2010 and 2014. Sadly, this number amounts to over 500 children per year losing their lives while over a hundred thousand more are left injured. In any event, over 3,700 victims lose their lives in tragic motor vehicle accidents each year in our state.
Losing three generations in one collision, caused by a negligent driver, is a truly devastating situation to deal with.
