Car Accidents in Texas – A Big Problem for a Big State. If you’re a resident of the Lone Star state, chances are you’ve done some serious driving–whether it be up north in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex or further south near Austin and Houston. One thing all Texans can agree on is just how much driving is necessary for life in Texas, but the more time we spend on the road, the higher the probability becomes of ending up in a serious car accident or car wreck.

Toyota-Car-Accident-AttorneyWould you be surprised to know that Texas is the state with the most fatal car accidents? In 2020 alone, the state saw 3,542 fatal car accident collisions.  And the number of car fatalities on Texas roads is increasing–the state saw a 7.54% increase in vehicle traffic fatalities from 2019.  Although the average number of total non-fatal car crashes and automobile collisions has been decreasing, it’s still unnerving to know that every time you hit the road in Texas, you may be at risk of getting in a serious car accident–one that may potentially end your life. Knowing this, it’s important that you’re familiar with your legal options if you should ever find yourself in this difficult situation.
