Fatal Car Accidents in Texas
In 2020, nearly 4,000 people were killed in car accidents that took place across Texas. A large number of fatal car accidents in our state are caused by the careless actions of other drivers. This means that these crashes are entirely avoidable. Unfortunately, innocent victims often get caught in the middle and end up losing their lives at the hands of a reckless motorist. These crashes are extremely tragic and leave family members grieving the sudden loss of a loved one.
Fatal car accidents in Texas take place hundreds of times per year. When your family has been affected by an El Paso car accident, you should know your legal rights.
