Due in large part to its high percentage of licensed drivers and public roads, Texas is the country’s most populous. It doesn’t really matter that the country’s busiest highway system is located here. As a result, Texas sees a significant increase in the number of traffic accidents.

TxDOT estimates that 3,500 Texans die, and 246,000 are injured each year as a result of traffic accidents.

Injuries to soft tissues, lacerations, fractured ribs, headaches, and migraines are common after a car accident.
