Every year, over 270,000 people are injured in motor vehicle accidents across Texas. Unfortunately, car accidents continue to be the leading cause of accidental death and injury for children across our state.
When children are injured in car accidents, they often go through extensive medical treatment and they are at an increased risk for permanent impairments.
