Serious Car Accidents in South Texas

San Antonio, TX - Major Car Accident on Hwy 90 at 36th St Leaves One Dead, Several InjuredEvery year, more than 17,500 people are seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents throughout the state of Texas. Head-on collisions place victims at an increased risk for suffering life-altering injuries due to the direct impact of these accidents. Many victims injured in car accidents require hospitalization and extensive medical treatment for their injuries. Thousands of people are left permanently impaired as a result of their injuries and are forced to deal with ongoing pain and suffering.

Here in Texas, a large percentage of accidents are caused by drivers who disregard stop signs and traffic signals at intersections. These accidents not only leave victims to deal with mental and physical consequences, but the financial impacts of lost wages, medical treatment, and vehicle repairs often extend to the entire family of each victim.

Not only are victims forced to suffer from completely preventable accidents, but victims and their families also suffer far-reaching and expansive consequences. Occasionally, victims may succumb to their injuries, leaving their grieving families behind to pick up the pieces.

In order to combat the issues victims face moving forward, courts in Texas allow some victims to file legal claims against at-fault drivers to recover compensation. In cases where victims sustain injuries in accidents caused by the negligence of others, it is crucial that they seek legal guidance from a knowledgeable San Antonio auto accident attorney at their earliest convenience.
