At the Anderson Law Firm, our Fort Worth personal injury lawyers have represented thousands of car accident victims. Although no car wreck is ever exactly the same, in Texas, there are four main things that cause car accidents. After years of representing clients hurt in car wrecks, we’ve found that speed, failure to maintain a safe distance, cell phone use and drunk driving are the four main things that cause wrecks.
What causes the most car accidents in Texas?
- Failure to maintain a safe distance from the car in front of you
- Cell phone distraction
- Drinking and driving
What’s incredible about the four main causes of car wrecks in Texas is that they are all avoidable and illegal in some instances.
What to Do If You’ve Been Hurt in an Accident
It’s unfortunate, but the facts are that most of us will be involved in some sort of car wreck in our lifetime. After an accident, the most important thing is to make sure you have received the proper medical treatment. Once that happens, you have several different options on how you can handle your case. If the other driver has insurance, their adjuster should be in contact with your shortly after the wreck. They may take full responsibility or not and they might offer you money to settle your claim. At the Anderson Law Firm, we encourage all of our potential clients not to make any rash decisions after their accident. Leave the big stuff – like giving a recorded statement, accepting a settlement or signing a medical authorization – until after you’ve completed all of your medical treatment.
