Fighting for Injured Car Accident Victims

In 2012, one person was killed every 2 hours 35 minutes and one person was injured every 2 minutes 17 seconds due to auto accidents in Texas alone…

While the above statistics may be shocking, they are completely true and have been consistent for years and years. Sadly, many could say those statistics could be much worse. Serious car accidents are traumatic and life altering, if not life ending. In 2012, there were no deathless days on Texas roadways, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.

MOST CAUSES OF AUTO ACCIDENTS

  • Speeding
    • Speeding is among the most common causes of auto accidents and was determined to be a contributing factor in 30-percent of all fatal accidents recorded in 2012.
  • Distracted Driving
    • While distracted driving has always been a concern, the advent of cell phones and text messaging have resulted in a sharp increase of distracted driving collisions.
    • The Department of Transportation lists three main types of distracted driving: visual, manual, and cognitive.
  • Drunk Driving
    • Despite attempts to raise awareness and enact tougher penalties, drunk driving continues to be a major problem. In 2013, alcohol was a factor in 32.2 percent of all fatal accidents recorded in Texas.
  • Reckless Driving
    • Reckless driving covers a number of actions and deals with a general disregard for traffic regulations and safety, whether it be intentional or accidental. This includes failing to adhere to stop signs, unsafe changes of direction or lane changes, and failing to keep proper look out.
