A local car accident attorney is necessary.
In Texas, 294,661 vehicle accidents occurred in 2011. Driving is a dangerous and necessary activity in modern society. If you have been in a Car Crash, you will need a Car Accident Attorney. Do not try to handle the other party alone!
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, you have a 30% chance of getting in an Auto Crash.
For 2013, 1 person was killed on Texas Highways and Byways every 36 minutes. However, the injury side saw more victims (one per 16 seconds and 2 minutes, respectively). Also, from recent statistics, traffic accidents leading to injury or death are reported every 71 seconds. Traffic accidents have involved 232,041.
We are also at risk from the amount of traffic we encounter every day. We hear about drunken drivers speeding through red lights or wrong-way drivers in our city every day. A vehicle drove past another pedestrian and struck it, causing the driver to fail to stop and render assistance.
The driver decided to flee. Auto accidents happen all the time, and there is little we can do. Although we cannot change drivers’ behavior, San Antonio recently passed a cell phone ban.
Since February 1, 2015, police have banned drivers from using their mobile phones while driving. While blue tooth-operated devices are allowed, we know from personal experience that many drivers text and make calls while driving.

Safety tips from Attorney at Ford & Laurel
Rear-end collisions are one of the most common car accidents. Did you know that trailer hitches can increase your risk of injury and other passengers in your vehicle? Surprising?
Rear-end collisions can cause soft tissue injury, i.e., injury to ligaments, muscles, and tendons throughout your body, resulting from a rear-end collision. A trailer hitch attaches directly to the vehicle’s frame and can cause serious damage, including back and neck injuries, as well as severe spinal cord damage.
Today, motor vehicles and railcars are safer than ever. Safety features like the “crumple zone,” which protects passengers from the impacts of collisions, have been added to most cars. A Crumple zone is a structural element that absorbs impact from a collision in the front or rear of the vehicle.
The “g force” can be transferred directly to the vehicle’s frame and the occupants’ bodies by inserting a hitch into the receiver. This means that there are more chances of severe trauma. A car without a hitch is more likely to sustain less damage.
According to the National Safety Commission Alert, the most common vehicle accident in America is the rear-end collision. A vehicle with a receiver hitch (towbar) increases the risk for Whiplash by 22% if hit in the rear. “A receiver hitch completely alters the crash dynamics.
Additionally, it has been proven that the “target” vehicle’s occupants will travel 2.5 times faster (or more) than the “bullet.” A small impact of 5 mph will send the target vehicle’s occupants flying at 12-13 mph, which is enough force to cause injury. This is called “Delta V,” or acceleration change. It’s what causes whiplash.
* 75% of rear-end collisions occur at speeds below 10 mph. This is surprisingly more common than whiplash. 28% of all crashes involve rear-end collisions.
* Rear collisions are most common on straight roads that are dry during daylight hours.
* Males aged 25-34 years are more likely to be in an accident.
* Whiplash injuries are more common in women. Younger women have non-muscular necks. The older population is more likely to sustain whiplash injuries if frail.
