Causes of Car Accidents

In 2011, the city of Austin saw a total of 11,852 traffic accidents, 3,347 of which involved serious injuries and 49 of which involved 1 or more fatalities. Anyone who has been injured in such an accident because of someone else’s negligence can file a car accident claim to recover damages.

At Melendez Law Firm, a personal injury attorney can investigate your accident to gather evidence and establish negligence. By proving that another person was responsible for causing your accident, we can maximize your compensation.

  • Texting
  • Talking on the phone
  • Eating
  • Putting on makeup
  • Adjusting the stereo or GPS
