The changes that can come to a city over the course of two decades can be dramatic as a recent online video showed with respect to how Austin has rapidly expanded. Back on June 9, 1996, a then-law student from Scotland decided to document what life looked like in the city, helping to create a time capsule for that distant era.
Traveling down some of the main city streets brought glimpses of buildings and businesses that are no longer there, gas prices in the range of $1.40 a gallon and traffic on a Sunday afternoon that saw minimal activity. Due to the absence of any heavy influx of traffic, there seems to have been little or no use for the services of an Austin car accident attorney.
Fast forward to the present day and things have drastically changed for Austin, the vast majority of differences being on the positive side. A surge in tech-related businesses and other startups has made the city a magnet for growth, resulting in an economic explosion that continues to offer many benefits.
Accordingly, Austin’s population has surged from approximately 560,000 at the time the video was shot to more than two million as of December 2015. That’s meant more cars on the road, which has increased the potential dangers for all drivers as well as pedestrians. Unfortunately, that’s also made the need for an Austin car accident attorney much more important.
If you or someone you know has been a victim of someone’s irresponsible behavior behind the wheel, it makes sense to get in touch with an Austin car accident attorney like those at Terry & Kelly PLLC. They fight passionately for their clients in the courtroom and have won large verdicts to help those victims achieve justice. Contact them today!
