Car Accidents in Texas
Car accidents throughout Texas send tens of thousands of victims to area hospitals with catastrophic injuries each year. Many victims require immediate medical attention and have to spend weeks off work to recover. Statistics surrounding collisions in Texas are often eye-opening. According to reports, one person is killed in a crash every two hours and twenty-four minutes in our state. Injury accidents happen far more often, leaving one person injured roughly every 2 minutes. Although these accidents often result in minor injuries, nearly 20,000 people are hospitalized with serious and life-altering injuries.
Many victims involved in collisions are forced to undergo both immediate and long-term treatment for their injuries. Thousands of people sustain broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and other injuries that have a debilitating impact on their lives and wellbeing. The aftermath of an accident can have far-reaching consequences for both victims and their families as many accidents result in stacking medical costs, repair fees, and lost wages. In many cases, victims are left with life-altering injuries that require extensive medical treatment and leave them with overwhelming pain and suffering. Far too many people are forced out of work to recover from their injuries.
