Fatal Auto Accidents in Texas
Each year, over 450 people lose their lives in motorcycle accidents in the state of Texas. Riders are often at a disadvantage during collisions due to the fact that they have little more than helmets to protect them. In many cases, these crashes are entirely preventable. We see many drivers, passengers, and other travelers lose their lives in accidents due to the negligence of others. Some of the leading causes of fatal crashes include:
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol
- Driver inattention
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Running red lights
Victims who lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents often leave behind friends and family members who are devastated to learn that their loved one has lost their life as a result of another driver’s negligence.
Auto accidents often cause overwhelming financial consequences as well. Your family will most likely have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on funeral expenses and deal with lost earnings. These and other financial burdens just make it more challenging to move forward. For this reason, it is crucial that you reach out to a wrongful death lawyer in Amarillo as soon as possible. You may have legal options available to help you get justice.
