Texas Car Accident Statistics
You are not alone as the victim of a life-changing car accident in West Texas. Unfortunately, negligent and reckless drivers cause thousands of vehicle collisions each year. The Texas Motor Vehicle Traffic Crash Facts report from the Department of Transportation states that in 2017, one person suffered a car accident injury every two minutes and four seconds. Traffic accidents injured 17,535 victims and took the lives of 3,727 others in Texas alone. Over 600 deceased victims were pedestrians and 57 were bicyclists in 2017. Drunk drivers killed 1,046 people while distracted driving took 452 lives.
At The Biggs Firm, you are not a car accident statistic. You are a real human with unique losses you have suffered. I focus on the person, not the case file. While I keep up with crash statistics to better understand the common causes of car accidents, I take a personal approach to injury law. As your attorney, I am 100% committed to you and your family’s welfare during your claim.
Who Is Liable In A Car Accident?
After a devastating car accident in West Texas, you have rights. As the victim of an automobile accident or a surviving loved one, you may be eligible to bring an injury claim against the at-fault party. Under Texas’ fault-based car insurance laws, the party responsible for causing your car accident will owe you compensation for your losses. This party could be another driver, a vehicle manufacturer, the trucking company or the local government who failed to maintain the roadway. I will help you determine fault for your recent accident.
Once you identify the correct at-fault party or parties, I can bring a claim for the appropriate amount of damages. The at-fault party’s insurance company should offer a settlement to cover your out-of-pocket and intangible losses, including medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and vehicle repairs. If the insurance company refuses to settle, I go up against the at-fault party in court. A civil lawsuit can end in better financial recovery for you and your family.
