Fatal Car Accidents in Texas
Motor vehicle accidents take place far too often in the state of Texas. In fact, more than 3900 people end up suffering fatal injuries and auto wrecks across our state every year. Although most drivers are careful while traveling along our roadways, we continue to see innocent people lose their lives due to the negligence of others. Some of the most common contributing factors to fatal crashes in the state of Texas include:
- Running red lights and passing stop signs
- Failing to yield the right-of-way to others
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driving while using cell phones or while being distracted by other means
- Changing lanes without looking
These negligent actions, as well as others, are the cause of nearly 90% of auto wrecks in our state. When people lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents, they often leave behind friends and family. Quite often, family members are required to spend thousands of dollars on funeral arrangements and suffer from various other financial consequences.
