Fatal Car Accidents in Texas
Every year, more than 3,900 people are fatally injured in traffic crashes across our state. 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 while impaired by drugs or alcohol
- Using cell phones to talk or text while driving
- Eating while operating vehicles
- Driving recklessly
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 lose their lives in accidents, they often leave behind family and loved ones who are forced to move on.
