Common Types of Fatal Auto Accidents in Texas
- Impaired driving - Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs take their own lives. They also take the lives of others sharing the road and car. They place their lives in their hands when they get in. They often are betrayed.
- Distracted driving - This is one of the fastest growing causes. It includes fatalities with inattentive driving. Distracted driving includes talking on a cell phone, texting, using other electronic devices, and performing activities like eating and grooming. These all take the drivers attention away from the road.
- Reckless driving - Speeding, driving erratically, ignoring traffic controls cause deaths. Even road rage can all lead to unnecessary and preventable auto deaths.
How to Win a Wrongful Death Lawsuit from a Texas Fatal Car Accident
- Proven negligence - Families must show that the defendant caused the death. They can point to conduct or actions.

This may be for loss of income, medical bills, funeral costs, or burial expenses. In some cases, pain and suffering to the surviving family count.
