The Flower Mound Intersection Is A Problem
Discussion about an intersection in nearby Flower Mound has us thinking about how many problems we have with intersections in and around the Dallas area. There, police say that the growth of the metropolitan area has caused more traffic on FM 2499 and that many drivers ignore the 45 miles per hour speed limit. The 2499 and Waketon Road intersection is proving to be a problem.
Police say that the number of car wrecks there have spiked over the last year. 2018 has seen more than double the 2017 total.
This area makes us think about the growth of the Dallas area and how traffic infrastructure is having trouble keeping up. At the Law Office of Dorothy Hyde, we know that many accidents occur due to driver error and negligence. Do you know where to turn if you are injured in a car crash that was someone else’s fault?

We need to face reality when it comes to the number of vehicle accidents in the state of Texas. For the latest reporting year, there were:
- 254,853 people injured in vehicle crashes
- 114,299 were serious injuries
- 3,721 people were killed
Those are high numbers and we know that the vast majority of them happen in and around crowded cities like Dallas. Accidents can cost individuals and families enormous amounts money when it comes to medical costs and hidden expenses.
Consider some of the more serious injuries that can occur in a car accident: brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken and dislocated bones, internal organ damage and more. These injuries often cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in emergency care alone. Long-term rehabilitation is often necessary for a person to make a full recovery and this only adds to the costs.
Are you sure your insurance will cover all of these expenses?
Why They Happen
All too often, vehicle accidents are caused by negligent driving behavior. This can include:
- Drunk driving resulted in 28% of all traffic fatalities in Texas last year.
- Distracted driving took over 400 lives last year.
- Aggressive driving and speeding remain the main cause of accidents.
We do not think it is fair that a person and their family should be in financial jeopardy because of another person’s negligence.
