Car Accidents in Texas
Millions of people are injured annually throughout the country because of rear-end accidents. Drivers oftentimes rear-end the back of other vehicles when they are speeding, using a cell phone, falling asleep behind the wheel, or driving under the influence. Drivers are expected to drive at the speed limit, pay attention to their surroundings, and leave enough space for vehicles in front of them to suddenly brake if necessary. When drivers fail to do this, they risk causing serious collisions that could put them and others in harm’s way.
