    Statistics show that Texas leads the nation with one of the highest traffic accident rates. In 2014, the death toll from car crashes climbed to more than 3,500 people, and more than 237,941 motor vehicle accident injuries were logged by state police. Crashes caused by distracted driving and alcohol impairment are also on the rise, according to the Texas Department of Transportation. Even more alarming, there have been no deathless days on Texas roads for the past two years.

  3. Slip and fall accident
    10%
    A large portion of slip and fall accidents in Texas arise from a hazardous property condition – from uneven flooring to slippery sidewalks, or pieces of loose carpeting. Property owners are under obligation to keep their premises reasonably safe and free of potential dangers for visitors and guests. When proper maintenance fails to take place and someone gets injured because of this negligence, victims may have the right to sue for damages.

  5. Wrongful death
    5%
    Wrongful death is a civil action brought by the surviving family members or loved ones of the deceased. According to Texas statutes, this type of claim may be brought if a wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, or unskillfulness of one party resulted in the death of another.
