Vehicle Injury Accidents In Texas
Texas motor vehicle statistics reported that in 2018, almost 250,000 people were injured in vehicle accidents on the state’s roads. A further data point illustrated that one reportable crash occurred every 58 seconds. Although the country’s number of motor vehicle accidents is declining, these statistics show just how common accidents are. Drivers can become distracted and lose focus on the road just for a second and an accident occurs.
Vehicle accidents can leave victims overwhelmed with emotional and mental stresses, as well as financial stresses. Being injured in an accident overloads victims with medical bills, insurance bills, and other expenses.
