Motor Vehicle Accidents in Houston
Car accidents happen far too often in Texas. According to recently compiled statistics concerning the crash rate in Texas, approximately one crash occurs every two minutes that causes injuries. These wrecks usually add up to more than 270,000 injuries per year. We hope for the recovery of all injured parties, however, over 3,600 lose their lives yearly due to fatal accidents in the Lone Star State.
Thousands of these accidents take place in Houston alone. Houston, being the fourth-largest city in the US and the largest in Texas, has an extremely high population, which has to do with its high crash rate. Thousands of injuries result from these wrecks, and sadly, thousands of deaths.
