South Texas Auto Wrecks
According to recent statistical traffic studies, approximately 17,500 individuals suffer injuries due to a Texas traffic accident every year. These injuries are the result of almost 15,000 auto collisions that take place in the Lonestar State annually. Texas is one of the most populated states in the nation, which could attribute to its high accident rate. Being involved and injured in a South Texas auto accident can mean seriously painful and debilitating injuries as well as financial burdening and stress. The stress can be increased when you are under the impression that your injuries were caused by the negligence of someone else on the road.
You could qualify for financial compensation in the event that you or a loved one have sustained injuries in a traffic accident caused by another person’s negligence. Financial compensation can cover things like medical bills, prescriptions, equipment, funeral costs, and more. You could collect damages in the form of pain and suffering for the stress the whole ordeal has caused you and your loved ones. No one should be expected to pay for enduring injuries caused by someone else’s carelessness.
