How Many People are Hurt or Killed in Vehicle Collisions in Texas Each Year?

According to the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles, there are over 22 million vehicles registered throughout the state, which helps explain the frequency of vehicle collisions Texas sees each year. Because of Texas’s grand size, and the over 29.5 million people who call the state home, crashes happen frequently on our roadways.

One traffic crash is reported throughout the state every 1.7 minutes, according to the Texas Motor Vehicle Crash Facts. These accidents translate into one injury every 2.34 minutes, and a fatality every 2.15 hours.

Last year alone, over 205,000 people were injured, and 3,630 people were killed in traffic crashes. Unfortunately, many of these collisions were caused by negligent drivers, which means they could have been prevented.

Including those caused by drivers who were:

  • Driving Aggressively
  • Driving Distracted
  • Driving Fatigue
  • Driving Impaired by Drugs or Alcohol
  • Failing to Obey Traffic Signs and Signals
  • Following Too Closely to the Driver in Front of Them
  • Speeding

How Can I Prove My Texas Auto Accident and Injuries Were Caused by a Negligent Driver?

Partnering with an experienced Beaumont car accident attorney is a good start. At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, we will review the circumstances of your crash from beginning to end, building your case around the facts of the collision. This means reviewing the evidence from the scene, evaluating witness statements, assessing any potential video footage of the crash, and outlining the details from the police report — including whether the driver was speeding, impaired, or distracted when the crash occurred. Once you have sought medical care, and understand the extent of your injuries, contact our skilled Beaumont car accident lawyers for a free case assessment, so you can focus on your physical and emotional recovery needs, while we handle the legal details.

How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident and Injury Claim in Texas?

The statute of limitations to file an auto accident and injury claim in Texas is two years from the date the collision occurred. However, our experienced Beaumont car accident lawyers know that the sooner we can get started on your case, the better our chances of preserving critical evidence that allows us to build your claim for success. Once you have received medical care, contact our dedicated personal injury law firm in Texas to ensure your best interests are the focus of your claim.

Can I Pursue a Negligent Driver Who Caused My Loved One’s Death During a Texas Traffic Collision?

Just as a personal injury victim may pursue a negligent driver for their damages, eligible family members may pursue a negligent driver — including a speeding, impaired, or distracted motorist — for the damages that resulted from the loss of their loved ones. Eligible family members have two years to file a wrongful death claim against a negligent driver from the date the accident and loss of life occurs.

Frequently Asked Questions for Beaumont Auto Accident

What if I was injured as a passenger in an auto accident?

If you were injured as a passenger in an auto accident, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your injuries and damages. In most cases, the driver of the vehicle you were in will be held responsible for the accident, and their insurance company will be responsible for paying for your medical expenses and other damages.

What information should I gather at the scene of the accident?

If you are not too badly injured it is a good idea to get as much information from the scene of the accident to help your claim. This includes contact information and insurance information from the other driver, contact information from any witness,  photos of the scene including images of the vehicles, skid marks, and any damage. You will also want to get the other driver’s license plate, the time and location of the accident and any notable weather or road conditions.

Do I need to call the police after an auto accident?

Yes, in Texas, you are required by law to report an accident to the police if it results in injury, death, or property damage exceeding $1,000. Even if the accident appears to be minor, it’s still a good idea to call the police so that they can create an official accident report.

Can I seek compensation for my injuries and damages after an auto accident?

Yes, if you have been injured in an auto accident that was caused by another driver’s negligence or recklessness, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your injuries and damages. These include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and punitive damages.

What factors are considered when determining fault in an auto accident case in Beaumont?

Evidence from the accident scene, such as police reports, witness statements, and photographs or video footage. The nature and extent of the damages sustained by each party, including property damage and personal injuries. The actions of each driver leading up to the accident, such as speeding, running a red light, or failing to yield the right of way. Any traffic violations committed by either driver. Whether either driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the accident. The road and weather conditions at the time of the accident.

Should I talk to the other driver’s insurance company after an auto accident?

It is generally not recommended to talk to the other driver’s insurance company after an auto accident, particularly without the guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney. Insurance companies are businesses and their ultimate goal is to minimize the amount of money they pay out on claims. As a result, they may try to use anything you say against you to reduce or deny your claim.

Are there minimum car insurance requirements in Texas?

In order to legally operate a vehicle on Texas roads, drivers must carry liability insurance that meets the state’s minimum requirements.

The minimum car insurance requirements in Texas are as follows:

· $30,000 bodily injury liability coverage per person

· $60,000 bodily injury liability coverage per accident

· $25,000 property damage liability coverage per accident

What is the Texas Dram Shop Act and how can it apply to my auto accident case?

The Texas Dram Shop Act is a law that allows individuals who have been injured by an intoxicated person to seek damages from the person or establishment that served them alcohol. This law can apply to auto accident cases in Texas if the accident was caused by a driver who was over the legal limit for blood alcohol content (BAC) at the time of the accident. Under the Texas Dram Shop Act, a person or establishment that serves alcohol can be held liable if they knowingly or recklessly serve alcohol to someone who is obviously intoxicated, and that person goes on to cause an accident that results in injury or death.

Do I still have a case if I was injured in a hit and run auto accident?

After a hit and run accident you may still have a case, it will just be harder to fight and you will want legal help. In Texas, all drivers are required to carry uninsured motorist coverage, which can provide compensation for injuries and damages sustained in a hit and run accident. However, you must have this coverage on your own auto insurance policy in order to be eligible for compensation.
