Fatal Car Accidents in Texas
In Texas, motor vehicle accidents claim the lives of nearly 4,000 people every year. In many cases, victims suffer fatal injuries in accidents due to the negligent actions of other drivers sharing the road. Drivers who are under the influence of alcohol contribute to more than 25% of fatal crashes each year. Drivers who are distracted account for 18% of crashes. Speeding contributes to nearly 20% of all fatal crashes each year.
Accidents involving semi-trucks and commercial vehicles account for more than 530 fatal crashes. These vehicles are much larger than other passenger vehicles sharing the road. As a result, they are more likely to be destructive in collisions.
These and other acts of negligence continue to have an overwhelming impact on families who are forced to deal with the negative consequences of losing a loved one. When victims are killed in motor vehicle collisions, families may have legal options available to help them move forward due to the negligence of others. Seeking the assistance of a wrongful death lawyer in Beaumont can help you get justice.
