Our sincerest sympathies to the victim of this unfortunate accident. We pray for their full recovery as we hope that the Bryan Police Department will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.
Reckless driving in Texas commonly often results in a serious injury and sometimes, death. While accidents are fortuitous events that cannot be foreseen, they can be prevented if only drivers had simply put their complete attention on the road and taken their responsibility as drivers more seriously. This is why, despite conscious efforts by government to combat the increasing number of fatalities and injuries every year, crashes due to negligence is still on the rise.
While it can be difficult to remain calm in a situation like this, it is important to know that you can be entitled to compensation and claims following a collision. If you or your loved one has been injured in a car accident caused by a negligent party or someone who was driving recklessly, you may have a right to a fair compensation for the trauma you experienced and the injuries you have suffered.
