Types of Automotive Accidents
With over 25 years of personal injury representation, we have represented victims involved in nearly every form of vehicular negligence. Automobiles are by far the most dominant form of transportation statewide and account for a significant percentage of the total accidents each year. A recent Texas Department of Transportation report indicates that over 232, 000 individuals were injured while operating a motor vehicle in 2013. Of that number, 3,377 were fatalities.
Motorcycles – Motorcycles make for a fun and efficient way to get around town, especially in Texas, which nearly half a million registered riders call home. Wide lanes and roads that stretch out beyond the horizon make it a perfect place to cruise. Unfortunately, bikers are also at greater risk of injury and death when confronted by an irresponsible motorist. In 2013, almost 500 people were killed while either operating or riding a motorcycle in Texas.
Pedestrians & Bicyclists – While less common, accidents involving cars and pedestrians or bicyclists tend to be more severe. Fatalities are quite often the result, with nearly 500 people losing their lives while walking or biking in Texas last year. No matter how cautious in a crosswalk or bike lane an individual may be, a distracted driver can make a seemingly safe situation exceptionally dangerous.
No Accident is a Small Accident
If you’ve been involved in a car accident, the first thing you or anyone should do is seek proper medical attention. Depending on the severity of the crash, emergency care might be a foregone conclusion. However, even the smallest of incidents should be taken seriously and a medical professional consulted. Certain injuries such as a concussion or internal bruising can take hours or days to manifest. In addition, if you plan on taking legal action for injuries sustained in the crash, you will want a full examination and diagnosis to bolster your case.
