Tyler, Texas Auto Accident
One of the most dangerous things that we do in our daily lives is operating a motor vehicle on the Texas public roadways. According the Texas Department of Transportation 2009 Texas motor vehicle crash statistics there were 59,164 serious injury crashes in Texas in 2009. These car wrecks resulted in a total of 80,640 people sustaining serious injuries. An attorney handling auto accidents needs to be experienced in documenting serious injury damages. These auto accidents resulted in 3,089 fatalities. A lawyer handling a fatality collision should be familiar with the issues surrounding the development of wrongful death damages. Intersection collisions caused 696 auto accident deaths in 2009. Liability in intersection collision cases is often contested and a lawyer handling intersection collision cases should be ready to fight for his client and their family. Head-on collisions killed 505 people. Head-on fatalities should often be evaluated regarding the crashworthiness of the innocent victims’ vehicle since the evolution of modern crashworthiness has focused on making head-on impacts survivable. Texas roadways did not have a single deathless day in 2009.
Drunk drivers were involved in 956 of the fatality car wrecks. An attorney handling a drunk driver fatality case should vigorously pursue not only actual damages but also punitive damages. A total of 235,280 persons were injured in Texas auto accidents in 2009. By deduction this means that approximately 150,000 of the persons injured in Texas car wrecks sustained notable but non-life threatening injuries, most likely involving neck, back, soft tissue and other whiplash type injuries. These damages are often more difficult to document and the auto accident attorney handling these types of cases must work with more subtle evidence of injuries and damages. We are experience in all of these things and auto accident victims in need of a Tyler Auto Accident Attorney should contact us today.
