Car Accidents in Texas
Car accidents occur every single day for a variety of reasons, but negligence is always a rooted issue. There have been instances where mechanical errors are also the cause of major collisions. When vehicles fail to remain in a single lane while on the highway, the cause could be low air pressure in one of the tires, causing the wheel alignment to shift. The cause could also be worn steering linkages or gears.
When individuals are harmed in car accidents and feel they were not at fault, they may be able to file personal injury lawsuits against all negligent parties.
