Fatal Car Accidents in Texas
In Texas, motor vehicle accidents claim the lives of around 3,900 people every year. In many cases, victims suffer fatal injuries in accidents due to the negligent actions of other drivers sharing the road. Some of the leading causes of fatal crashes include:
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol
- Driver inattention
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Running red lights
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.
