Fatal Car Accidents in Texas
In Texas, motor vehicle accidents claim the lives of nearly 4,000 people every year. In many cases, victims suffer fatal injuries in accidents due to the negligent actions of other drivers sharing the road. Drivers who are under the influence of alcohol contribute to more than 25% of fatal crashes each year. Drivers who are distracted account for 18% of crashes. Speeding contributes to nearly 20% of all fatal crashes each year.
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. Car accidents often cause challenging financial consequences as well. Your family will most likely have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on funeral expenses and deal with lost earnings. These and other financial burdens just make it more difficult to move forward.
When victims are killed in motor vehicle collisions, families may have legal options available to help them move forward due to the negligence of others. Seeking the assistance of a wrongful death lawyer in Lubbock can help you get justice.
