Do You Drive and Text? Then You May Have to Speak With A Texas Personal Injury Attorney

To avoid an auto accident, you should not use your cell phone while you are driving. Cell phones have become a serious threat to other drivers on the Texas highways. They are one of the most common reasons for accidents, whether from someone texting or talking on the phone while they are trying to drive. Several states are now requiring the usage of "hands free" phone devices while driving to try and reduce the usage of cell phones while driving.

Exhaustion is another cause of car accidents that needs to be addressed. According to Texas highway statistics, many auto accidents are the result of tired drivers. If you stop often and take breaks, it can be a very effective way to avoid accidents that occur due to exhaustion. If you are extremely tired while driving, then pull over!

Statistics taken from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveal that 2,221,000 passengers were injured in auto accidents in 2007 in the U.S. That means that you have a 1 in 6500 chance that you may be in a car accident. Very low, but still quite probable.
