Car Accidents in Texas
Every year, more than 270,000 people are injured in Texas car accidents. Unfortunately, over half of these incidents are caused by drunk or impaired drivers.
When victims are injured in collisions caused by drunk drivers, they are often forced to undergo surgeries and other extensive medical treatments. In some cases, victims have to take off extended time from work and go through months of therapy. Victims injured in car accidents caused by impaired drivers should contact a Texas car accident attorney as soon as possible.
