Vehicle Accidents in Texas
Sadly, about every 2 minutes someone is injured in a traffic accident in Texas. Most accidents occur when drivers fail to pay attention to their surroundings, causing them to be unaware if a car is in their blind spot if a car is switching lanes in front of them, if a car brakes suddenly, or if a car is switching lanes at the same time as they are. It doesn’t take long for a major accident to occur as a result of inattention. Even though most drivers compulsively use their phones, it’s very important not to do so unless of an emergency.
