Car Accidents in Texas
Car accidents in the state of Texas are the cause of tens of thousands of injuries each year. Unfortunately, we see many people hospitalized with severe injuries that impact their lives forever. Common injuries reported in traffic accidents in our state include:
- Trauma to the head.
- Spinal cord injuries.

Any type of accident has the potential to cause serious injuries to those involved. However, T-bone accidents can cause some of the worst. There are many factors that can contribute to a T-bone accident at an intersection. The leading factor is typically driver error. This can include things like running a red light or stop sign, making an improper turn, or failing to yield the right of way. In some cases, alcohol or drug use may be a factor. Additionally, poor road conditions or signage can contribute to an accident.
