Car Accidents in Texas
Over 150,000 accidents occur at intersections every year throughout the United States. Often times drivers are speeding through yellow and red lights instead of yielding and stopping. There are other instances when drivers are on their phones and unaware that they are approaching a changing light. As a result, they collide with other cars that have the right of way.
No matter what causes a collision, injured victims may have the right to file personal injury lawsuits as long as they did not cause the accident.
