In 2017, there were no days when someone wasn’t killed in a crash on Texas roadways. A total of 3,721 people were killed. In Dallas, 197 people lost their lives in vehicle crashes.
Why does it happen?
We recognize that sometimes fatal accidents happen and nobody was at fault and it really was an accident. We also know that sometimes, other drivers are reckless on the roadways.
When another driver is impaired by drugs or alcohol, they are much more likely to cause a fatal accident. Their irresponsible behavior is a hazard to anyone on the road around them. Not only should they be held liable, but so should anyone who knew they were intoxicated and continued to serve them. In Texas, there are dram shop laws that allow servers and bartenders to be held liable if they served alcoholic beverages to someone who is obviously intoxicated and that person proceeds to hurt or kill someone.
Drivers who are distracted by their phones or other devices can also be held liable for injuries and fatalities they cause. Many people think that taking their eyes off the road to send a text message or watch a video won’t hurt anyone. We know better. Driving while distracted can be just as deadly as driving while intoxicated.
In the aftermath of a fatal accident, surviving family members have so much to deal with. After the funeral services are over and the initial shock wears away, you will have many questions. Losing the income of a loved one can have devastating financial consequences for your family as well.
