Fatal Car Accidents in Texas
Around ten people lose their lives each day in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Texas. 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.
When victims lose their lives in accidents, they often leave behind family and loved ones who are forced to move on. Dealing with the mental and emotional challenges during the grieving process is only made worse by towering medical expenses, funeral costs, and other financial burdens.
