Family car trips are an American tradition, one that’s been immortalized in movies and has become an annual event for many families across the United States. Whether it’s a trip to a national park, an amusement park, or to visit the grandparents, parents and children alike look forward to loading up the car and heading out for an adventure.
That’s what makes horror stories like this accident involving a minivan carrying two families being impacted by a semi, or this one, in which a collision with a gas tanker killed a woman’s husband and two children, particularly tragic. Family outings that were supposed to be fun suddenly turned tragic.
Every year, more than 30,000 people are killed in motor vehicle accidents on U.S. roads and more than 2 million sustain injuries. If your family has fallen victim to such a tragic accident, what is already a nightmare situation can be complicated further when you try to receive proper compensation, especially for out-of-town visitors who may not be aware of Texas laws and regulations or have access to proper help.
