Causes of Fatal Accidents in Texas

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, fatal accidents are on the rise. In 2012, 3,399 people were killed in fatal auto accidents on Texas roadways. Nearly a third of these deaths were alcohol-related.

Texas allows spouses and children of deceased individuals to file wrongful death claims against those responsible for fatal wrecks. Common causes of auto accident fatalities include:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving at excessive speeds
  • Driving too fast for conditions
  • Driver fatigue
  • Passing and failing to stay in a single lane
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road
  • Failure to yield at an intersection
