Personal Injuries in Texas
Studies show that 30 percent of accidents that happen when drivers crash into buildings are caused by operator error, and 26 percent of these accidents are caused by pedal errors. Operator error happens when drivers are driving too fast or shifting into the wrong gear. Pedal area occurs when drivers accidentally step on the gas instead the brakes. These types of accidents are more common amongst elderly drivers and drivers who are under the influence.
