Vehicle Accidents In Texas
Motor vehicle accidents can occur for a number of reasons. Often, the driver can find him or herself distracted, causing a lack of focus on the road and subsequently, a crash to take place. In 2018, authorities in Texas reported almost 400 deaths in vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver. Although this is a 12% decrease from the previous year, the statistic suggests that accidents are still all too common.
Being involved in a motor vehicle accident can be frightening and can have life-lasting emotional, mental, and physical impacts. Often times, victims are injured in an accident and are left feeling overwhelmed by medical bills, as well as insurance bills and other post-accident expenses.
