Texas Car Accident Statistics

Data collected by the Federal Highway Administration (FHA) shows that Texas has 654,923 total lane miles, more than any other state in the country. While there is so much to explore and do in the beautiful Lone Star State, traveling by motor vehicle can also be incredibly dangerous. According to 2021 data from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT):

  • A reportable car accident happened every 57 seconds
  • Fatal car accidents increased by more than 15% from 2020
  • 19,448 people suffered serious injuries in 15,764 motor vehicle accidents
  • Someone was injured in a crash every 2 minutes and 12 seconds

Car accident statistics for the city of Fort Worth are not much better, as there were 14,679 Fort Worth car accidents in 2021 alone. Of these, there were:

  • 130 fatalities
  • 534 suspected serious injuries
  • 2,488 suspected minor injuries
  • 4,412 possible injuries

If one or more car accidents caused you to suffer life-altering injuries, we are here for you. Our Fort Worth car accident attorneys are prepared to make sure the insurance company pays you a settlement that fully covers your lost wages, medical expenses, and, should the situation warrant it, funeral and burial expenses.

Most Dangerous Fort Worth Intersections

When traveling in Fort Worth, exercise caution when driving near our city’s top five most dangerous intersections:

  • Lancaster Avenue and Riverside Drive
  • Texas 360 at Texas 183
  • McCart Avenue at Interstate 20
  • Sargent Street and E. Lancaster Avenue
  • I-35 (North Freeway) and Meacham Boulevard

Remember, a car accident can happen anywhere and at any time. Always wear your seat belt, drive the speed limit, and pay attention to all traffic signs. Although defensive driving cannot prevent accidents caused by negligent drivers, it can go a long way in lowering your chances of being involved in a crash.

How a Fort Worth Car Accident Lawyer Protects Your Rights After an Accident

When you file a car accident claim, the at-fault party’s auto insurer will be responsible for paying. However, as you will soon learn, it is not in the insurance company’s best interests to pay out compensation for car accident claims. If the insurance company refuses to pay you full and fair compensation for your injuries and other related damages, hiring a Fort Worth car accident lawyer will show them that you mean business.

Your attorney will know all relevant state and federal laws that apply to your case. At Buckingham & Vega Law Firm, we won’t let the insurance company take advantage of you during this vulnerable time of your life.

When To Meet With a Fort Worth Car Accident Attorney

Not every Fort Worth car accident necessitates the filing of a car accident claim. However, we do recommend that car accident victims still meet with an attorney at least once, regardless of how minor their collision might have been.

If, like many car accident victims, you’re on the fence about meeting with a lawyer, we encourage you to evaluate whether any of the following factors are present in your auto accident case:

  • You or a loved one suffered severe injuries
  • A family member was killed
  • You are unable to work
  • Medical bills are starting to pile up

If you’d like to meet with a Fort Worth car crash attorney, we offer a free initial consultation. During this meeting, you’ll have the opportunity to sit down with an actual attorney who is prepared to answer any and all questions you may have about the potential merits of your case.
