El Paso Accident Statistics
Serious accidents—especially car accidents—happen in El Paso on a daily basis. While some of these accidents are relatively minor fender-benders, others result in fatalities and serious injuries. Recent annual car accident statistics for El Paso, Texas show the following:
- 59 fatal car crashes
- 64 fatalities
- 193 suspected serious crashes
- 233 suspected serious injuries
- 1,631 non-incapacitating crashes
- 2,265 non-capacitating injuries
- 2,703 possible injury crashes
- 4,067 possible injuries
Many personal injuries are caused by reasons other than car crashes. Following a serious accident or injury, people often do not know what to do or where to turn. If you sustain injuries in an accident, you can rest assured that our El Paso personal injury law firm will be able to assist you and offer you guidance at every step!
Different Types of Accidents
The nature and extent of the personal injuries you sustain depend largely upon the type of accident you are involved in. In most accident cases, you must be able to show that another person failed to act reasonably under the circumstances. Moreover, you must be able to prove that this failure caused the accident and all your injuries. While these elements of proof are similar in most accident cases, the methods of proving these elements are different. For example, depending upon your accident type, you may need to introduce different pieces of evidence to prove your case.
Our skilled personal injury law firm has experience in handling cases that involve many different types of accidents in the greater El Paso area. Some of the most common types of personal injury cases that we handle on a regular basis include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Truck accidents (including those involving big rigs, 18-wheelers, and commercial trucks)
- Drunk and drugged driving accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents and other premises liability claims
- Trip-and-fall accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Construction site accidents
When you retain our law firm, you will ALWAYS have a law firm representing you who has handled your type of accident before. Your law firm will know exactly what legal steps to follow to maximize the settlement or jury verdict value of your personal injury case.
Injuries and Damages
When a serious accident results in one or more serious injuries, you will likely have to go to the doctor, receive follow-up medical care, undergo testing, complete physical therapy, and receive other types of treatment. You may also be forced to miss time from your job to attend medical and physical therapy appointments—or just to recuperate from your injuries. All this takes up valuable time and money, and you can get compensation for both under the law. Our law firm handles personal injury cases that deal with ALL types of injuries, including:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neck injuries
- Back Injuries
- Internal bleeding and organ damage
Besides getting compensation for all your medical bills and treatment, you can also get compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering, inconvenience, lost quality of life, lost future earnings, and benefits.
If a healthcare provider can show that your accident resulted in an injury that will need future medical care or treatment, you may also be able to recover those anticipated costs as well.
Finally, if your loved one died in an accident that resulted from another person’s negligence, you may be able to recover damages by filing a wrongful death claim. As part of a wrongful death claim, the accident victim’s survivors may be able to recover compensation for loss of future earnings or support, as well as for the pain and suffering the accident victim experienced up until the time of death.
Following an accident, insurance companies are never on your side, and they are not concerned about doing the right thing in your case. Instead, they are interested in doing the “cheap thing”—usually by offering you as little money as possible to settle quickly. When you retain our experienced El Paso personal injury law firm to represent you, you can be sure that we will FIGHT the insurance company for the compensation you deserve.
