Each year The United States Department of Transportation discloses fatal accident statistics in the country. The latest publication shows Texas as the runner-up state with the highest number of road deaths nationwide. According to the NHTSA, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2018 vehicle-related accidents caused 3,642 deaths in Texas. Most incidents occurred in streets and highways located in urban areas. California was the only state to surpass Texas.

The number of accidents and deaths at workplaces showed Texas in a rather alarming position. Close attention at the increase in fatalities within the Hispanic community in Texas further reinforced the distressing percentages. In the latest publication of the AFL-CIO, American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations, 219 Latinos lost their lives in Texas in 2018 as a result of work-related accidents. The transportation, gardening, temporary assistance, and construction sectors showed the highest percentage of incidents respectively. Behind these statistics are thousands of victims who suffered accidents in the aforementioned sectors. Apart from the serious injuries suffered, these individuals were abandoned without any compensation or help from either their employer or the respective insurance companies.
