Fatal Auto Accidents in Texas
Motor vehicle accidents take the lives of more than 4000 people each year. People who are using bicycles at the time of their accidents are more likely to suffer catastrophic injuries due to the fact that they are nearly unprotected during accidents. Bicyclists are at a severe disadvantage when traveling along roadways with negligent and reckless parties.
Unfortunately, we see many people suffer fatal injuries and accidents due to drivers’ negligence. Some of the leading causes of fatal accidents in our state include:
- drivers who are distracted by their cell phones and other objects
- drivers who failed to yield the right of way to other motorists
- drivers who run red lights and pass stop signs
- drivers who turn at intersections without looking
