Car Accidents in Texas
Thousands of car accidents happen in Texas every year, leaving thousands of people with minor, severe, or catastrophic injuries. What’s unfortunate about most car accidents is that they could be prevented. Most of the time driver’s inattention or some other form of negligence is responsible for causing collisions.
When drivers are not being responsible on the road and cause serious accidents, they should be held financially liable for all of the damages they cause.
