Car Accidents in Texas
When children are involved in motor vehicle accidents, they are more likely to sustain serious and life-threatening injuries. Sadly, more than 17,500 people are seriously injured in collisions throughout Texas annually.
When victims are injured in collisions, they are often forced into area hospitals where they undergo extensive medical treatment. In numerous cases, especially those involving young children, victims are forced to spend weeks or even months in hospitals and recovering. When victims are harmed in accidents due to the negligent acts of others, it is imperative that they contact a car accident attorney in Texas as soon as possible.
