Fatal Car Accidents in Texas
Every year, crashes reported in Texas claim the lives of more than 3,800 people. These crashes can often be contributed to some form of negligence. In fact, nearly 80% of traffic-related incidents in our state are due to driver error. Some leading causes of collisions we see each year include:
- Driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol
- Using cell phones to talk or text while driving
- Eating while operating vehicles
- Driving recklessly
Victims who lose their lives in motor vehicle collisions 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 motorist’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. 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, due to the negligence of others, families may have legal options available to help them move forward.
