Automobile Drivers Are Experiencing Increase in Number of Accidents
CHART According to the Texas Department of Transportation, in 2011, there were approximately 87,000 accidents involving serious injury and approximately 3,000 fatal motor vehicle accidents reported. When an auto accident happens, it is important to get help right away if you have been injured or if a loved one dies in an automobile accident. It can be overwhelming to take care of the injuries as well as navigate all the paperwork and legal aspects of an auto accident.
Recent reports from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) show that in 2009, more than 23,000 passenger vehicle occupants lost their lives in traffic crashes. An estimated 1.97 million were injured. These statistics are even more alarming in Texas, where we have more than 300,000 miles of public roads and more vehicles than ever using them.
Americans are far more active on the road today than ever before. Unfortunately, as a result, there are more truck and car accidents on U.S. roads and highways. Serious collisions can lead to catastrophic, life-altering injuries and even death.

The following are summaries of representative auto accident cases Slack & Davis’ car accident attorneys have handled.
Defective Tire Causes Family’s Vehicle to Roll Over
- Five members of a Dallas family were driving to Colorado for a baseball tournament and brief vacation. While traveling on a rural two-lane road, the tread of the left rear tire separated from the tire and wrapped around the axle so tightly the emergency brake cable engaged, locking the wheel and ultimately causing the vehicle to roll over several times and land on its roof. One child died as a result of this crash. Other family members suffered numerous traumatic injuries. The collision was caused by a defective tire that was manufactured in Taiwan and sold in Dallas by a U.S. distributor. This case was settled for a confidential amount.
