Car Accidents in Texas
Roughly 20,000 people are left seriously injured from car accidents across our state each year. Although we can take proactive measures to ensure we do not harm other drivers, there is no guarantee that those sharing the road will take the time to consider you as well. The unfortunate truth is that nearly 80% of collisions throughout our state each year are caused by driver error. When drivers talk or text on cell phones, change radios, eat, or drive impaired, they place the lives of thousands of others sharing the road at risk.
Depending on the type of accident, the speed at which vehicles are traveling, and various other factors, victims are likely to sustain broken bones, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries in collisions. There are numerous treatment options available for victims. Regrettably, they come at an extraordinary cost. Victims who are injured in preventable accidents as a result of other motorists can reach out to a truck accident attorney in Abilene to explore legal options available that may help them obtain compensation to cover the costs for care and other financial burdens they face after collisions.
