TRAFFIC DEATHS ON THE RISE IN TEXAS AMID THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
March 31, 2021
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the roads have largely been far less populated. As a result, more and more drivers have been speeding, and though traffic levels are down, fatalities as a result of speeding have increased in Texas. This is unacceptable. If you are someone who has been injured in an auto accident, or you know someone who passed away in an accident, you must continue reading and reach out to our experienced Texas personal injury attorneys today to learn more about how our firm can help you through the claims process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What Are the Most Frequent Causes of Auto Accidents?
Auto accidents can happen for a wide array of reasons, though unfortunately, they are most frequently a result of negligence. There are various forms of driver negligence. Some of the most common we see in today’s day and age can include texting while driving, speeding, driving while fatigued, and driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
How Do I Know if I Can Sue Someone for An Injury Sustained in An Auto Accident?
If you are looking to sue someone for an auto accident, you will have to hire an experineced Texas personal injury attorney who has years of experience gathering and presenting the evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof. Some of the most useful forms of evidence can include pictures/videos of the accident, medical documentation, police reports, witness statements, and more.
What Is the Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims in Texas?
The statute of limitations is the amount of time individuals have from the date of an accident to sue the party responsible. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is, generally, two years, giving the wrongly injured two years from the date of their accident to sue. Though you may wish to wait to see if your injuries will heal on their own, our firm cannot advise you to do so, for if you wait past the two-year mark, you will most likely be barred from suing. Do not let this happen. We are ready to fight for the compensation you deserve and need today–all you have to do is ask.
