Texas Car Accidents

Approximately 400,000 vehicle accidents are reported in the state of Texas per year. These accidents cause injuries to hundreds of thousands of people and take the lives of close to 4,000 annually. These accidents can happen for many reasons. Currently, driver intoxication and distraction are two main causes of auto collisions in the Lone Star State. Driver negligence is the main reason that auto accidents happen in the United States. Over 90% of the car wrecks reported in the country are the result of some type of driver error/negligence. 

Every year, the United States sees around 6 million car accidents that injure about 3 million people. The majority of these wrecks are caused by driver negligence. When you or someone you love has been hurt by the actions of a negligent driver, you should work with a car crash lawyer who can help you recover. An attorney can help you get the money you need to pay for the costs that stem from your crash. Medical bills, vehicle repairs, wage loss, and more may be able to be compensated for by filing a personal injury claim with a lawyer. 

In the worst-case scenario that you’ve lost a loved one in a car wreck caused by a negligent driver, a wrongful death attorney can help you file a wrongful death claim on behalf of your family member. You should never have to pay for the costs related to your loved one’s passing, especially if it was caused by someone else. Additionally, negligent parties need to be held accountable for their actions. 

Numerous different types of injuries can result from auto accidents. Some of these include: 

  • Severe whiplash
  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones
  • And more

Sustaining a severe injury in a car crash can, unfortunately, cost a fortune in medical bills. Sometimes, depending on the severity of an injury, a car accident injury can cost tens of thousands of dollars in hospital bills. The average American citizen does not have this kind of money to spend on medical care, especially when they are unable to work due to their injuries. 

If you have recently lost a loved one in a car accident who spent a lot of time in the hospital prior to their death, you may be faced with outstanding medical bills that you are unable to afford. A wrongful death lawyer can help you pay for these bills, as well as the cost of funeral care and burial services.
