Fatal Car Accidents in Texas
Every month, auto wrecks in Texas take the lives of more than 300 people.
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.
These accidents can often be contributed to some form of negligence. In fact, nearly 80% of accidents in our state are due to driver error. Some leading causes of collisions we see each year include:
- Driving recklessly
- Using cell phones to talk or text while driving
- Eating while operating vehicles
- Driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol

Car accidents often cause overwhelming financial consequences as well. When victims lose their lives in accidents, they often leave behind family and loved ones who are forced to move on.
