What Causes Austin Car Accidents?

While some car accidents are caused by defective car parts, poor road signage or lighting, or other non-driver errors, the vast majority of crashes are directly attributed to a driver’s negligence.

The main goal of our investigation is to uncover the cause of the crash. We want to find out who is responsible for the crash and secure the evidence needed to prove our claim. In Austin, crashes are commonly caused by:

  • Speeding
  • Impaired driving
  • Failing to yield
  • Tailgating or engaging in other reckless driving behaviors
  • Failing to check a blind spot
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving while drowsy
  • Running stop signs and stop lights or ignoring other signage
  • Driving aggressively

Although an accident can occur anywhere, there are parts of Austin that are more dangerous than others. The intersection of Whitestone and 183A in the Austin suburb of Cedar Park is the site of hundreds of accidents. Crashes frequently occur at Lamar and Palmer, Riverside Drive and South Pleasant Valley Road, and Butler Road and Lamar Boulevard. While state agencies have taken steps to make these intersections safer, it is still best to be cautious and avoid intersections with unclear signage, high speed limits, and other dangers.

Accident rates tend to spike in metropolitan areas, so it should come as no surprise that Austin has significantly higher accident and injury rates than communities in more remote parts of Texas. These statistics are limited strictly to the city of Austin and do not include suburban areas or neighboring communities.

What to Do After a Car Crash

When you take the proper steps after a car accident in Austin, you protect your right to seek compensation and keep yourself safe. Here’s what we recommend:

05

Compensation

We know that a car accident can leave you financially devastated. The full impact of a crash takes time to assess, which is why we are so thorough in our investigation. The goal of the insurance company is to settle quickly for as little as possible. We won’t let that happen.

Depending on the types of injuries you have sustained and the severity of your accident, we may pursue the following types of compensation on your behalf:

  • Medical bills and other expenses, such as adaptive equipment, prescription copays, and transportation expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental Anguish
  • Lost income potential if the accident permanently affects your ability to work or get promoted
  • Physical limitations
  • Disfigurement

Most personal injury cases are settled out of court. A lawsuit is risky for insurance companies, which is why they are generally willing to negotiate. Our team is full of aggressive negotiators who know how insurance companies work, what evidence makes them reconsider their offer, and how to push them to pay fair compensation. If the insurance company won’t budge, we move quickly to file a lawsuit. No matter what, our goal is to get you the compensation you are rightfully owed.

Remember that the statute of limitations in Texas is two years from the time of your car accident. Time passes quickly when you are struggling to juggle financial changes, heal from physical injuries, and get back to normal after a life-changing crash. If you wait too long to reach out to an attorney, you could lose your right to pursue compensation.

Unfortunately, car accidents are a common cause of death in Austin and throughout the United States. If you lost someone you love in a car accident, we feel for your loss. After a fatal car crash, surviving family members may be able to seek:

  • Medical expenses incurred between the time of the accident and the victim’s death
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of income and financial support
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of domestic services and support
  • Mental anguish
