Officials concerned about the number of fatal car wrecks in Texas

The Texas Department of Transportation is concerned about the number of fatal collisions that are occurring. If their numbers are accurate, fatal car wrecks are happening on a daily basis. This is a trend that they would like to see end.

It is believed that over the last 15 years, 50,000 people have lost their lives in car accidents in Texas. That averages out to be about nine people a day. This number only accounts for those lives lost on state highways. Most recently, a driver lost his or her life in an accident on Highway 44 is the Corpus Christi area. This individual is said to be one of eight deaths for that area in the past two months.

Officials are currently working on a campaign to end these accidents. Public service announcements with the statistics are being broadcast statewide. State officials are asking all drivers to be more careful in an effort to stop these incidents from occurring.

Fatal car wrecks can drastically alter the lives of the families affected and the lives of those believed responsible for such incidents. When they do occur, it may be possible for victims' loved ones to seek compensation through legal means. Wrongful death claims may be filed in a Texas civil court. Through the successful establishment of negligence against the individuals deemed responsible, surviving family members may be awarded monetary judgments to help cover their losses. While nothing can replace a loved one, taking this action may be able to provide family members with some sense of justice and closure.
