New Year’s Crashes in Texas How to Avoid Them

Auto Accidents | Drunk Driving Accidents

Reporting for nearly five thousand crashes on Texas roadways cited alcohol as a contributing factor last year, and 38 Texans lost their lives in fatal motor vehicle crashes during the New Year’s holiday alone.

So, before you head out to ring in the New Year “right,” consider these things you can do to avoid spending the beginning of the year recovering from an auto accident.

Common Reasons Texans File for Wrongful Death Over the Holidays

Wrongful Death

It’s hard to imagine during what’s supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, but statistics show that tragedy does strike during the holidays. When it results in the loss of a loved one, Texans are often left dealing with unexpected medical expenses, funeral costs, and the emotional trauma of the experience – all while trying to get through a time when everyone around them is cheery and celebrating togetherness.

If you find yourself in this type of situation, one of the easiest things to lose sight of is the fact that not all “accidents” are innocent or impossible to prevent. If another’s wrongful act, lack of skill, carelessness, or neglect led to your loved one’s death, this [...]
