What to do if involved in a car accident

While driving is a convenient way to get where one needs to go, it is also a tremendous responsibility. The Texas driver is responsible for operating the vehicle in a safe manner, yet a car accident can happen to even the safest driver. When one does occur, it is important to know what needs to be done.

Distracted drivers cause approximately 20 percent of accidents

While driving down the road, it is common to look around, take in the sights and see what other drivers are doing. Fortunately, many drivers are actively paying attention to their surroundings. However, some Texas drivers appear to be more concerned with their cell phones than with their own safety and the safety of those around them. In fact, research shows that approximately 20 percent of car accidents are caused by distracted drivers.

Alleged drunk driving causes fatal car accident

Morning traffic can be brutal along Texas roadways. It seems as if everyone is rushing to get to work or get their day's errands started. The average morning driver must remain vigilant and watch out for drivers whose minds appear to be elsewhere. When drivers are not paying full attention to the road, a car accident can easily occur. It seems that most morning rush hour car accidents are the result of distracted driving; unfortunately, there does not appear to be a time of day when the possibility of a drunk driving accident does not occur.

Car accident claims the lives of 2 drivers on Texas interstate

Traffic along Texas interstates can be intense. Thousands of drivers are all trying to reach their destinations while singing along with the radio, talking with passengers, catching up on business over the phone and more. As a result, there is the possibility of a car accident occurring.

Hit-and-run accidents can claim lives

Accidents happen on a daily basis. When one driver's vehicle collides with another on a Texas roadway, both vehicles typically stop, determine if anyone is injured, call the local authorities and emergency personnel and exchange information. Unfortunately, in some cases, drivers refuse to stop and the focus then shifts to hit\-and\-run accidents.

Intoxicated driver causes fatal car accident

Highway driving is a fast way to get from one destination to another, but it can be dangerous. Being involved in a car accident can be a frightening experience for drivers and passengers in Texas. When one driver willingly operates a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, anyone sharing the roadway can unknowingly be at risk. Sadly, a fatal accident involving multiple vehicles occurred due to the apparent poor decisions made by another driver.

Vehicles break down all the time, and when that situation occurs, it is in the best interest of the driver and passengers to get the vehicle safely off the roadway. Unfortunately, in Texas, simply being on the side of the road does not ensure that everyone is safe from danger. A car accident involving individuals being stopped on the side of the road can be devastating and cause injury to anyone involved.

Fatal car accident leaves community in shock

Unfortunately, fatal accidents that occur as a result of a negligent driver are extremely common in Texas.  In some cases, the victims of a car accident are being mindful and abiding the traffic laws but still can be in the path of another driver's destruction without knowing it. Families of the deceased may not only be dealing with the heartbreak of losing a loved one, but they also may find out that the death was because of someone else driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

A town is coping with the gravity of hit-and-run accidents

Across the country, children walk home from school every weekday. It is devastating for a family to lose a child while he or she is doing something so innocent. Unfortunately, hit\-and\-run accidents occur frequently in Texas, and occasionally the outcome can be fatal. When a child falls victim to a car accident while crossing the road, it can leave a community in shock.
