Texas Automobile Accidents
In the United States, car crashes are a leading cause of death among individuals ages one to 54. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that approximately 100 individuals are killed per day due to auto collisions and close to 40,000 lose their lives per year.
In Texas, car accidents take the lives of around 10 people per day or over 3,600 per year. This is nearly 10% of the national fatality rate. In 2020, however, nearly 4,000 people were killed in car crashes in the Lone Star State. This is approximately 7.6% higher than the previous year.
Close to 15,000 individuals were seriously injured in car crashes in Texas in 2020. Once every two and a half minutes, a person sustained an injury in an accident that same year. Being seriously hurt in a car crash can be extremely difficult. Victims suffer physically, mentally, and financially. Usually, the aftermath of a severe collision can cost thousands of dollars as well as a lot of time and energy.
