Vehicle Accidents in Texas
Unfortunately, thousands of people are seriously injured or lose their lives in car accidents in Texas every year. Most accidents happen when drivers are not driving responsibly on the road. Drivers often get distracted for various reasons, the most common reason being a cell phone. Because many drivers use GPS and listen to music on their phones, they’re often looking at their phones for direction or for musical selection. Even though this activity seems harmless, it only takes a few seconds of not looking at the road for a major collision to occur.
