Texas Traffic Accidents
In Texas, more traffic collisions occur than anywhere else in the United States other than California. California, Texas, and Florida are the top three states in the nation with the most reported car crashes per year. On average, the state of Texas sees more than 400,000 auto collisions annually. These wrecks cause injuries to hundreds of thousands of people and take the lives of thousands per year.
Unfortunately, the majority of car crashes reported in the United States and across the state of Texas are preventable and caused by the actions of negligent drivers. Distraction, fatigue, intoxication, and speeding are the main types of driver negligence seen throughout the country. Every year, over 400,000 car crashes happen because of drivers who are distracted. The rise of smartphones has given people more reasons to be distracted than ever. Some drivers choose to look at their phones while driving, which can turn out to be dangerous and devastating.
Those who are hurt by the actions of negligent drivers often suffer injuries that are severe in nature. Some of the most common injuries seen in auto collisions caused by negligence include:
