Reviewing fatal motor vehicle accident statistics

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were more than 30,000 fatal motor vehicle accidents across the country in 2013. Although this number represents a decline in the number of fatal accidents when compared to some of the previous years, such as 2005 when there were more than 39,000 fatal crashes, the numbers are still very alarming and represent scores of lives that could have been saved had drivers been more responsible. In Houston, Texas, and across the United States, fatal motor vehicle accidents remain a serious problem and drivers should focus on safety at all times.

Auto accident claims three lives

When someone is involved in a fatal auto accident, there are often far-reaching consequences on top of unbearable emotional devastation. For example, the loved ones they leave behind may be unable to cover funeral expenses or they may experience other financial challenges brought on by the death of their family member, such as a lost source of income. In Houston, and across Texas, people who are suffering with the ramifications of a deadly car accident should explore all avenues.

How many pedestrians are killed and injured in accidents?

When pedestrians are involved in a traffic accident, they often face an especially high risk of suffering an injury or losing their life. Sadly, these accidents happen all too often in Houston, Texas, and across America. Even for pedestrians who survive an accident, the psychological scars and serious injuries may haunt them for years to come. To make matters worse, some may also have difficulty covering medical expenses or paying other bills because they can't work. In order to prevent the possible repercussions of an auto-pedestrian accident from ruining additional lives, drivers should always watch out for pedestrians and drive safely.

supporting families struggling with a pedestrian accident

When a pedestrian is hit by a vehicle, their world may turn upside down in an instant. From injuries and physical pain to death and emotional trauma, the consequences of a pedestrian accident can be severe. However, pedestrian accidents can also have a significant impact on the families of victims in a plethora of ways. At Grimes & Fertitta, P.C., we strive to offer support to families in Houston and other parts of Texas who are going through these challenges firsthand.

Houston authorities cite bad lane change in fatal bus crash

On busy city freeways in Houston and across the country, a fatal accident can happen in the blink of an eye, and can change lives forever. Loss of limb, brain trauma, and spinal cord damage are some of the injuries that can occur in a car crash. Another driver’s negligence can result in losses that cannot be recovered, as well as years of adjustment and rehabilitation for survivors. When the unthinkable happens, a driver or other party may be found responsible for the wrongful death of a victim after an accident.
