Teen Crash Deaths at Night Are Increasing in Texas

The number of teens who are dying in night time crashes has tragically risen as the use of cell phones has increased, the Texas Transportation Institute at Texas A & M University reported in sobering news today.

The number of fatalities has increased by over 10% over the last 10 years.

I have a client who was rear ended on a local highway by a teenager on her cell phone. My client had to undergo a spinal fusion and discectomy as a result. My client is still in pain due to the wreck in June 2007. I just took her neurosurgeon’s deposition last night. I used this diagram as an exhibit in the deposition.

Talking on the phone, texting, surfing the internet, and even using a bluetooth headset while driving is distracting. Distractions are the leading cause of automobile crashes in America. Thousands of people are injured every year as a result.

If you’ve been hurt because of a wreck, call my office at 817-885-8000 or e-mail me. I will fight hard to get you the maximum recovery possible. In addition, if you mention that you found me by this blog or my website, I offer a reduced attorney fee of only 28% pre-trial instead of the 33.3% pre-trial fee that most attorneys charge. That will translate to hundreds or even thousands of dollars in savings to you.
