Texas roadways often contain heavy traffic. While every driver is obligated to comply with traffic laws and safety regulations, there is not much one driver can do about another driver’s behavior behind the wheel. If a driver is negligent or reckless, it can cause a collision that results in injuries to others, which is what recently happened when several car accident victims had to be taken to a nearby hospital.

Two vehicles were involved in the collision. When rescuers arrived at the scene, they found one of the travelers was trapped inside a vehicle amongst the collision debris. Thankfully, the rescuers were able to extricate the person from the vehicle, then arrange for immediate transport to a nearby hospital.

Two other people were also transported to a hospital for emergency medical care. One of them is said to have been suffering from a serious medical condition. Those who suffered injuries were listed in serious condition when they arrived at the hospital.

In the past, many Texas collisions have later been determined to have been caused by driver negligence. When that is the case, anyone who suffered injuries because of a driver’s negligence is able to file a personal injury claim in a civil court to seek compensation for damages. Such damages often extend beyond physical injuries to include emotional trauma, loss of wages during recovery and other expenses that may be associated with a specific car accident.
