Fatal Car Accidents in Texas
In Texas, motor vehicle accidents claim the lives of more than 3,900 people each year. In many cases, victims are harmed in crashes due to the negligence of other drivers. In fact, nearly four out of every five crashes are caused by some type of driver error. Some leading causes of crashes we see each year include:
