“Aggravated” Car Collisions

‘It Was an Accident’ Is Just an Excuse

Motor vehicle accidents rarely just happen out of the blue for no reason. They are caused by a negligent act or a string of negligent acts that conspire to create a collision.

As Texas roadways become more crowded, it is unsurprising that the number of accidents is increasing.

Some accidents happen for more obvious reasons than others. Likewise, some accidents are more preventable than others. At Kerry H. Collins, P.C., I represent clients who have been involved in some of the most egregious accident situations, a category I call “aggravated” accidents.

What Are ‘Aggravated Accidents?’

Although aggravated accident is not a legal term, it isn’t difficult to find circumstances when “over-the-top” negligence has led to the injury or death of a human being through an automobile collision.
