Fatal Car Accidents in Texas
The state of Texas is no stranger to motor vehicle accidents. Unfortunately, our state consistently ranks among the top states in the number of fatal accidents that take place each year. In 2021, we saw a record number of more than 4400 people die as a result of automobile accidents in our state. Year after year, the number of fatal accidents continues to increase. No matter how many laws are in place to prevent drivers from engaging in reckless actions, we continue to see them do so nearly every day.
There are many instances where people die as a result of crashes that are caused by drivers who are impaired, speeding, or engaging in other careless and reckless actions while behind the wheel.
