Vehicle Accidents in Texas
About 40 percent of all car accidents that occur in the country happen at intersections. When vehicles attempt to make left turns in front of oncoming traffic without yielding to those who have the right of way, they risk being T-boned and suffering serious injuries. Accidents also occur at intersections when drivers run red lights because they’re in a rush, under the influence, or tired. Often times distracted driving is the reason individuals sustain major injuries after a crash, which is why it’s important to get help from a Texas personal injury attorney to help prove negligence.
