Car Accidents in Texas
Motor vehicle crashes that result in injuries take place nearly every two minutes in the state of Texas. Unfortunately, accidents often have an overwhelming impact on the lives of those involved.
There are several types of accidents that we see take place here in the state of Texas. T-Bone accidents occur when a car hits another from the side, head-on, or rear. They are often fatal because the forces involved are very high. Side-swipe accidents occur when a car runs into the back of another from the side. Incorrect lane changes are one of the common causes of accidents. When drivers change lanes without signaling, they can cause accidents.
Speeding accidents are another very common type of accident that we see in Texas. These crashes involve someone driving too fast for the conditions. Speeding causes more deaths than any other type of accident.
Uninsured motorists cause a large percentage of car accidents in Texas. Uninsured motorists are people who have not taken steps to get insurance, such as getting a driver’s license or registering their vehicle. When they get into an accident, they are not financially responsible and may be able to sue the other driver.
In Texas, car accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. From rear-end collisions to drunk driving accidents, these wrecks can have a serious impact on drivers and passengers.
