There are thousands of vehicle collisions in Tarrant County every year. Sudden wind gusts and other uncontrollable events cause a few of them. But for the most part, these events are not accidents. They may have been unintentional, but they were usually preventable. For that reason, many government agencies and media outlets no longer use the A-word to describe these incidents.
Negligence, which is a lack of care, causes about 90 percent of the car crashes in Tarrant County. So, most vehicle collisions are not unavoidable "accidents." In these cases, victims may be entitled to substantial compensation. This reimbursement usually includes money for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering.
