The Reality of Texas Auto Accidents

By Williams & Brown LLP on August 24, 2015

Texas Auto AccidentWhile many people have an irrational fear about traveling by plane or jet, most people don’t think twice hopping in their car or truck and turning the key. In reality, the chances of being in a plane crash are tiny. Being in a car accident, on the other hand, is something most of us will experience at least once in our lives.

Grim Texas Auto Accident Statistics

According to statistics provided by the Texas Department of Transportation (TDOT) for the year 2013, a reportable crash happened every 71 seconds in the state. The TDOT also reports that car crashes resulting in injury to a person occurred every two minutes and 16 seconds. These statistics add up to a total of 232,041 car crash related injuries and 3,377 crash related deaths. While new cars continue to become safer and most drivers wear seatbelts, traveling by motor vehicle can still result in serious injury or death.

As a Texan, you spend a lot of time on the road. Our great state is large, with miles and miles of roadway. Whether you are commuting to work or picking up your kids from school, your major concern is the safety of you and your family. Being injured in an auto accident—even a moderate one—can have a substantial impact on your life. Injuries can lead to mounting medical bills, pain and suffering, permanent disability, and lost wages.
