Laredo, Texas, is located on the North Bank of the Rio Grande in South Texas. Being located so close to the Mexican border means that Laredo is an important port of call for businesses looking to trade between the United States and Mexico. It's one of the fastest-growing cities in the state of Texas and the United States as a whole. The sheer business of Laredo, partly due to the fact that there are four international bridges that connect it to Mexico, makes the roads a risky place to drive.
Data recorded by the Texas Department of Transportation states that there was a total of 25 fatal crashes resulting in 28 fatalities on the streets of Laredo during 2018. There was also 49 serious crashes resulting in 58 serious injuries, 587 non-incapacitating resulting in 838 non-incapacitating injuries, and a total of 5,576 crashes altogether. The Texas Department of Transportation has listed the most dangerous roads in Webb County, of which there are some in Laredo.
What Should I do if Involved in an Auto Accident?
It can be hard to make rational decisions in the aftermath of a car accident, no matter how serious or mild it was. Your main priority should be calling emergency services, getting yourself checked over by first responders, and having the police record the details of the crash.
After that, it may seem like the next logical step is to contact your insurance company and begin the claims process, but you'd be wrong. After seeking medical attention for injuries sustained in the accident you should contact an auto accident attorney.
Our team can help to ensure that you get the best outcome possible following your involvement in an auto accident. Sometimes, car insurance companies don't want to pay up, or there's issues with who was to blame and there may be a possibility of a lengthy lawsuit emerging.

Injuries from Auto Accidents
Car crashes can be devastating to people involved due to the sheer amounts of force the impact creates, as well as debris from inside and outside the vehicle. It’s incredibly rare to withstand the impact of a high-speed crash without resulting injuries.
Some of the most frequently observed injuries that occur as a result of auto wrecks include:
- Broken bones
- Spine injuries
- Brain injuries
- Organ damage
It’s common for people involved in auto crashes to sustain more than one type of injury. Some people spend days, weeks, or even months recovering from their injuries. Whereas some people may never fully recover, or bear the mental scars of the accident for many years down the line.
