Car Accidents in Texas

Lubbock, TX – Three Hurt in Three-Vehicle Wreck on Slaton RdThousands of people are seriously injured in accidents across Texas every year. These accidents often result in the need for extensive medical treatment, significant time off work, and overwhelming pain and suffering. Not only do injured parties deal with the overwhelming physical and emotional consequences of accidents, but they often bear thousands of dollars in medical expenses while being forced out of work to recover.

Unfortunately, many people are involved in accidents due to the reckless actions of motorists sharing the road. There are several types of negligence that continue to lead to serious accidents taking place in our state.

There are many factors that can contribute to car accidents. One of the most common is distracted driving. Something as simple as a conversation with a passenger can take a driver’s attention off the road and increase the likelihood of an accident. Drivers who are going too fast for road conditions or speeding through intersections are another common factor in car accidents across our state. Finally, many accidents in our state are caused by impairment. Driving under the influence increases the chance of being involved in an accident by almost four times.
