Injury Accidents in Houston
Auto accidents take place all too often in Texas. Information recently gathered concerning the auto crash rate in the Lone Star State shows that a reportable collision happens approximately once every two minutes. These incidents usually equate to over 270,000 injuries every year. Although we hope for the full recovery of all injured victims, sadly, more than 3,500 are killed in these collisions annually.
Unfortunately, the truth is that no matter how safe you try to be while driving, it is never guaranteed that other drivers will try to demonstrate the same level of care. Because of this fact, it is not uncommon to see people sustain serious or even debilitating injuries in auto accidents caused by distracted, reckless, and negligent drivers.
