Fatal Collisions In Texas
Every year, over 3,700 victims lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents across Texas. Unfortunately, the chances of sustaining catastrophic and fatal injuries in a collision are greatly increased when larger vehicles, such as trains, are involved.
Victims who are taken away tragically and unexpectedly in motor vehicle accidents often leave behind grieving families. Sadly, surviving family members are not only left to deal with the emotional consequences of a fatal collision, but they are often left to bear the funeral expenses, which can be over $10,000.
