In the United States, Texas is one of the leading states in the number of traffic collisions involving fatalities. In fact, in 2015 alone, the state recorded more than 1,300 deaths caused by reckless drivers. Despite the government’s aggressive efforts to keep these cases down, Texas remains the worst state in the country for alcohol-involved car crashes.

If you are injured by a reckless driver, the first thing you need to do is call the police. Once the investigation is completed, you can file a lawsuit against the suspected driver and possibly. A successful case could help you cover your medical expenses and compensate for your emotional and physical suffering.
