Texas Highway Are Filled With Serious Auto Accidents

​In Texas in 2013, there were 65,539 car crashes that had seriously injured occupants. Many of these collisions occurred on the highways and freeways within the state. The total number of serious injuries in Texas for 2013 from car accidents was 89,270. Drivers may be in hurry and speeding to make up time because of traffic. Many fail to consider the impact that speed has on accidents on the busy highways and freeways. Driving at a higher rate of speed affects the impact of the collision between vehicles. Additionally, it increases the likelihood injuries for the occupants. Even a minor finder binder can cause soft tissue damage to the driver and their passengers.

Speeding Increases The Likelihood of Freeway Accidents

​​Speeding increases the likelihood of an auto accident and so does the injuries increase at higher speeds. Some of the ways that speed impacts accidents includes:

  • Crash Energy- this a term that describes the amount of energy created when two cars collide. The amount of energy created by a crash increases when one, or both, of the vehicles is traveling at an elevated speed. For example, a 50% increase of the vehicles speed would result in a 125% increased crash energy.
  • Stopping Distance- the amount of space needed to safely stop a vehicle is often taken away by speeding. Many drivers fail to stop and crash into the car  in front of them. This is often the cause of a rear-end collision. When a driver is speeding the have less time to react to what is in front of their cars. As a result, that hesitation could be only a second but could have been needed to safely slow the automobile.

What to Do After A Houston Freeway Car Accident?

After a highway accident or a freeway crash many may not know how to handle the aftermath of the collision.
