Fatal Collisions in Texas
An average of ten people will lose their lives every day in motor vehicle accidents across our state. Sadly, accidents involving go-carts and other small recreational vehicles are more likely to result in fatal injuries. These vehicles present unique challenges for drivers sharing the road, making it difficult for drivers to see them – especially when a driver is distracted by texting or some other distraction. When victims lose their lives in collisions, due to the negligent acts of others, it is crucial that their families contact a wrongful death attorney in Texas to protect their legal rights.
