Hurt in a Car Accident?
There are hundreds of car accidents in the San Antonio area every day. Most accidents are small fender benders, but others can have deadly consequences. In Texas, more than 3,000 people die in car crashes every year; in the San Antonio area alone, about 200 people die each year.
Happily, the majority of people survive car accidents, but often only at the cost of serious personal injury. In Bexar County alone, there are almost 50,000 crashes every year, and almost one-third of those results in injury or impairment.
The most tragic aspect is that most of these accidents are caused by negligence: careless drivers, defective auto parts, or even poorly maintained roads can, in a mere instant, change your life forever.
Common Causes of Car Accidents in Texas:
- Distracted Driving – Texting, talking on phone while driving
- Drunk Driving
- Auto Defect – Defective tires, brakes, air bags, seat belts, etc.
What to do Next
If you've been involved in an car accident due to any of these causes, it is important to get started on the case immediately, or important evidence and testimony may be lost.
