But just how dangerous, exactly? Turns out it varies wildly, depending on where you live…To get an overarching look at how deadly the roads are in all 50 states, plus D.C., we combined government data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Federal Highway Administration.”

“FORT WORTH – One of the victims of a fiery crash in Fort Worth on Sunday was headed home from an engagement party with her fiancé when an 18-wheeler hit her and others standing in the road trying to help the victim of an earlier crash, police said Sunday.
Says Fort Worth personal injury attorney Amy Witherite of the Witherite Law Group law firm “the statistics are astounding when it comes to the total number of Dallas-Fort Worth car crash cases we have brought to us, which don’t even account for the broader total of how many actually occur.” The attorney’s firm handles cases throughout the state of Texas, but says “many of the cases our firm takes on are heavily concentrated in Dallas and surrounding areas like Fort Worth.” So much so that the firm expanded its practice to include a Fort Worth based office to cater to the needs of individuals in the area.
