TEXAS CAR ACCIDENT DATA
Throughout the state of Texas, over 3000 people are killed in car accidents every year. The estimated economic loss of all motor vehicle crashes in the state during 2019 was $39,200,000,000.

- Someone was killed in a traffic accident every two hours and 24 minutes.
- One person was injured every two minutes and seven seconds.
- One reportable crash occurred every 58 seconds.

If you’ve been wrongfully injured in a car crash, you deserve to receive compensation and care.
COMMON CAUSES & EFFECTS OF CAR ACCIDENTS
Addressing what causes car crashes can be a momentous task. Countless factors can lead to an accident any time someone is on the road, and at times collisions are avoidable by even the best of drivers.
However, for the purposes of car accident claims virtually every crash has a single common cause—human error. Whether it’s a distracted driver looking at their smartphone instead of the road or a pothole-filled street the city has failed to maintain, people—or companies and organizations run by people—are the root cause of most car accident claims we handle at our firm.
Among the most common causes of car accidents in the U.S. are:
- Reckless driving, such as speeding and tailgating
- Distracted driving, such as texting while driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
- Not paying attention to or ignoring stop signs, streetlights, turn signals, etc.
- Poorly designed, constructed, and/or maintained roads and highways
- Fatigue, stress, anger, and other strong feelings or emotions
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, 403 people were killed in traffic collisions involving distracted driving in 2018. That same year, there were 961 fatalities in motor vehicle crashes in which a driver was under the influence of alcohol, which came out to a total of 26% of traffic fatalities that year.
Common car crash injuries include:
- Back, neck, and brain injuries (due to whiplash and/or being struck by or against an object)
- Cuts, bruises, and scrapes
- Soft tissue injuries, such as strains and sprains
- Debilitating injuries, such as several spinal cord damage or brain damage
- Internal injuries
- Knee injuries
- Broken bones
- Wrongful death
