Car Accidents in Texas
A traffic accident can have an overwhelming impact on your life. Regrettably, we see many people live with severe injuries that prevent them from working or engaging in activities they enjoy. There are many cases where innocent people suffer debilitating injuries due to the negligence of others. Common causes of crashes that we see here in Texas include:
- Failure to Yield: When a driver fails to yield, it often leads to other drivers having to swerve or brake suddenly to avoid an accident. This can cause a rear-end collision or even a head-on collision.
- Switching lanes recklessly: This often happens when drivers are not paying attention to their surroundings and fail to check their blind spots before changing lanes. This can easily lead to a sideswipe accident or even a head-on collision.
- Distractions: It is important for drivers to be aware of their surroundings and not let themselves get distracted while driving. Regrettably, we see many accidents take place as a result of drivers who are changing the radio, talking or texting on the phone, or engaging in other distracting actions.
- Impairment: Impaired drivers have slowed reflexes, poor judgment, and often make careless mistakes that can lead to serious accidents.
