Car Accidents in Texas
Crashes in Texas often have devastating consequences on the lives of those involved. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of people in our state are hospitalized annually as a result of automobile collisions, and many of these accidents involve some form of negligence. This is particularly true when it comes to crashes that take place at intersections.
Regrettably, driver error is one of the leading causes of crashes that take place at intersections. We see countless accidents take place as a result of drivers who misjudge the speed of oncoming traffic, fail to yield to others, make illegal turns, or simply run red lights.
In other instances, faulty traffic signals can cause accidents that take place at intersections. If the light is not working correctly, it can result in multiple vehicles proceeding through the intersection at the same time. This can lead to a devastating collision.
Additionally, distracted drivers are truly one of the leading causes of crashes that take place at intersections and in various other locations across our state. When drivers are not paying attention to the road ahead, they are likely to crash into other vehicles nearby.
Unfortunately, any act of negligence can cause a serious accident that results in severe injuries to those involved.
