Fatal Car Accidents in Texas
The last time the state of Texas saw one day with no traffic-related fatalities was November 7, 2000. In the 21 years since that day, more than 70,000 people have lost their lives while traveling in our state. Motor vehicle accidents in Texas take the lives of more than 3,900 people 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.
Victims can lose their lives in crashes for a variety of reasons. Sharing roads with drivers who are speeding, impaired, or distracted can drastically increase the chances that accidents will occur. If your loved one has lost their life in a motor vehicle accident, you should act quickly to protect your legal rights. By reaching out to a wrongful death lawyer in El Paso as soon as possible, you can explore the legal options available to help your family move forward after enduring the loss of a loved one.
