What Are the Leading Causes of Auto Collisions in the U.S.?

With a growing number of the population getting behind the wheel of a car to carry out day-to-day activities, it is no surprise that the subsequent number of car accidents that occur each year has reached a devastating rate. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ( NHTSA), more than 6 million traffic accidents take place annually—leaving more than 40,000 dead as a result. In Texas alone, more than 3,300 people are killed in auto collisions every year, in addition to the countless others that suffer the lifelong consequences of a catastrophic injury.

Unfortunately, a great number of these accidents could have been prevented. Although unfavorable weather conditions and deteriorating roadways can cause the same amount of damage, many times, car collisions can be attributed to reckless and distracted drivers.

  • Distracted driving has become a more common of an issue with the current technological advances, as a great number of people try to navigate their way around town while texting or talking on their cell phone, as well. Because of this, countless victims have been forced to suffer the consequences.
  • Another leading cause of traffic accidents can be attributed to the growing number of drunken drivers getting behind the wheel. When a negligent individual decides to make such a senseless decision, they are endangering not only themselves, but everyone else in the vicinity.

If you have been injured by a negligent driver, turn to our team of aggressive Dallas car accident attorneys for help pursing compensation. When we take on a case, we fight hard to make sure our clients are adequately compensated for all of their losses - physically, financially, and emotionally.

What Type of Compensation Can You Recover in an Auto Accident?

  • Medical treatment costs, such as surgeries, doctor visits, rehabilitation, and related expenses
  • Missed wages and lost income during the time you are unable to work
  • Diminished earning capacity if you are no longer able to earn the same level of income as before your accident
  • Pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and psychological trauma
