A Look at the Numbers: Accidents in Killeen, Texas
Before we delve into the gritty details, let’s take a look at the reality of accidents in Killeen. According to the Texas Department of Transportation[^1^], in 2019 alone, there were 4,519 reported accidents in Killeen… tragic, isn’t it?
It’s not just about numbers. Each of these statistics represents a life disrupted, a family affected, a story changed. That’s why personal injury law is so important. It’s about seeking justice for those who’ve been wronged.
What is Personal Injury Law?
Personal injury law, also known as tort law, is designed to protect you… yes, you, if you’ve been harmed or injured due to someone else’s negligence or intentional conduct. This can include a range of incidents, from car accidents to medical malpractice, from slip and falls to dog bites.
In the Lone Star State, personal injury claims follow the “modified comparative negligence” rule[^2^]. It’s a mouthful, isn’t it? But it’s not as complicated as it sounds. Basically, it means that as long as you’re less than 51% at fault for the accident, you can still recover damages. However, your compensation would be reduced by your percentage of fault.

Behind the dry statistics, each accident in Killeen has a personal story. Picture this: a mother of two, driving her kids to school on a sunny morning. A truck driver, exhausted after a long shift, doesn’t see the red light. Crunch. Sirens wail. Lives change in an instant.
