Motor Vehicle Accidents In Texas
There are numerous reasons why irresponsible drivers cause motor vehicle accidents. Unfortunately, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is one of the leading causes of accidents across our state. Sadly, over 3,700 people lose their lives in fatal collisions across Texas roadways annually.
Victims on dirt bikes are more likely to sustain fatal injuries simply because their bodies remain exposed. When victims lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents, it is crucial for surviving family members to contact a wrongful death attorney in Texas to protect their legal rights.
