Despite laws enforcing drivers to remain aware and alert at all times, drivers still partake in negligent driving that ultimately puts themselves and others at risk. Often times drivers glance down at their phone, which is enough time to accidentally rear-end someone or collide with another vehicle that’s pulling out of a parking lot. Because there are many factors that could lead to a fatal collision, it’s important for families to seek help from a Texas wrongful death attorney.
