Car Accidents in Texas
Unfortunately, Texas has the most traffic accident-related fatalities in the United States. Most car accidents are caused by negligence, which is completely avoidable since it consists of distracted driving, drowsy driving, drunk driving, and reckless driving. Under all of those circumstances, drivers are not completely aware of their surroundings, which causes them to accidentally rear-end, T-bone, or collide head-on with another vehicle. Other causes of accidents include faulty auto parts that suddenly cause disruption on the road. Because there are many potential factors that lead to car accidents, it’s important for injured parties to seek help from an experienced Texas personal injury lawyer for immediate assistance.
