Fatal Car Accidents in Texas

Houston, TX – Woman Fatally Injured in Crash on I-610, Man InjuredAuto accidents occur every day in Texas. Many of them result in severe injuries for those involved. Regrettably, more than 11 people die on average as a result of crashes that take place in our state every single day. There are many factors that lead to these accidents taking place. Some of these include:

  • Speeding: Speeding while operating a vehicle increases the chance of losing control of the vehicle and crashing. It also makes it more difficult to stop in time if another vehicle suddenly appears in front of you.
  • Alcohol: Alcohol impairs your judgment and coordination, making it more likely that you’ll get into an accident. If you’re going to drink, make sure you have a designated driver who can take you home safely.
  • Distractions: Anything that takes her attention off the road ahead can be incredibly dangerous. Unfortunately, we see many people suffer serious injuries or even die as a result of crashes caused by drivers who are texting on the phone, talking to others, or even eating while operating their vehicles.
  • Weather conditions: Icey roadways, snow, rain, or heavy fog can all reduce visibility and make it more difficult for drivers to maintain control of their vehicles.
