As of the 2010 Census, Westover Hills had the highest per capita income in Texas and the 12th highest in the nation. This 455-acre independent municipality is a suburb of Fort Worth with fewer than 750 residents. The neighborhood is home to several impressive mansions, including Westover Manor, formerly owned by oilman John E. Farrell, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. However, Westover Hills residents have complained of cut-through traffic speeding through side roads near the traffic light at Forest Hill Avenue and Jahnke Road, as reported on NBC 12.

Although motor vehicle collisions can occur for various reasons, including mechanical failure, adverse weather conditions, and dangerous roadways, most result from some type of driver negligence. Common causes of car accidents include:
- Speeding: A total of 12,330 people were killed in speeding-related crashes in 2021, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Speeding not only increases the risk of a crash but also increases the force of the collision when an accident occurs.
- Tailgating: Following too closely behind another vehicle increases the risk of a rear-end collision in case the driver ahead has to slow down or stop suddenly. Tailgating can be particularly dangerous at highway speeds.
- Unsafe lane changes: All enclosed vehicles have blind spots. Drivers who fail to signal and carefully check their blind spots before switching lanes can collide with another vehicle in the adjacent lane.
- Distracted driving: Driver distraction is anything that takes the driver’s attention away from operating a motor vehicle. Crashes are more likely to occur when drivers fail to keep their eyes on the road, their hands on the wheel, and their attention on operating the vehicle safely.
- Impaired driving: It is illegal in Texas and throughout the U.S. to operate a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs. A total of 13,384 people in the U.S. were killed in drunk driving crashes in 2021, as reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
- Disregarding traffic signs and signals: Drivers who run yellow lights, red lights, and stop signs put others on the road at risk. Car accidents are common at intersections when drivers fail to obey traffic lights or fail to yield the right of way to other motorists.
The force of impact in a motor vehicle collision can cause a wide range of injuries to virtually any part of the body. Common car accident injuries include:
- Back and neck injuries
- Fractured bones
- Facial injuries
- Head and brain injuries
- Wrist and ankle injuries
- Leg and foot injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Spinal injuries
- Crush injuries and loss of limb
After a serious car accident, you may be entitled to file a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance company or file a lawsuit in civil court. Common damages in car accident claims include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and more. To pursue compensation effectively, it’s important to consult with a knowledgeable Westover Hills car accident lawyer who can help you assess your case.
