A motor vehicle crash is one of the worst experiences in any individual can suffer through, and unfortunately, Texas roadways are some of the most dangerous in the nation.
The National Safety Council has given Texas a “C” grade for road safety. The council has noted problems with speeding, distracted driving, and weak laws protecting child passengers, teen drivers, and vulnerable road users. Statistics from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) prove this.
TxDOT reported that in 2016 there were over 14,000 serious injury crashes that left 17,582 people with serious injuries. Even worse, over 3,700 people lost their lives in auto accidents on Texas’ roads. This means that on average in the state of Texas:
- 1 person perishes in an automobile crash every 2 hours and 20 minutes
- 1 person is injured every 1 minute and 59 seconds
- 1 reportable crash occurred every 57 seconds
These jarring statistics remind us of how fragile life can be when setting out on the open road. The caring attorney at Ramos James Law, PLLC, wants you to know that if you have been the victim of a catastrophic auto accident, you are not alone.

Injuries Caused by Serious Auto Accidents
Because of the tremendous speeds and force associated with serious auto accidents, victims often deal with intense injuries including but not limited to:
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck and back injuries (whiplash)
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Lacerations from broken glass
- Burn injuries
- Facial injuries

When another driver is engaged in distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, aggressive driving, or just general negligent behavior, a car accident can easily happen. These types of behaviors are made even worse by hazardous road conditions and weather.
In certain cases, defective car parts or vehicles can also lead to life-changing accidents.
