Many of us have had that bad day on the road. We are on our way to or from work when a tire goes flat. Or, maybe you notice smoke under the hood and decide to stop for safety's sake. Or, like one Texas woman, maybe your car just decides to stall completely, and you are forced to pull off the road.
Many of the personal injury or wrongful death cases we discuss on this Texas blog involve the commercial trucking industry. Wrecks involving trucks are often some of the most severe, which is why improving safety within the industry is of such importance in Texas and throughout the country.
An evening motorcycle ride with your spouse sounds like a nice date. Unfortunately, people's innocent, beautiful plans are interrupted every day by tragedy. Texas officials are investigating one such tragedy, a motorcycle crash, that occurred last Thursday.
The majority of this blog has been devoted to car accidents, motorcycle accidents, wrongful death and other tragedies caused from negligence. This post is a bit different, as it's about a different type of personal injury case that affects many Texans every year.
When two vehicles are involved in a minor collision, the motorists typically walk away from the accident unscathed because the vehicles are capable of absorbing most of the force from the impact. When a car or truck collides with a motorcycle, even at a low rate of speed, the consequences can be deadly for the biker since he is not protected from the impact in a motorcycle accident.
Truck drivers spend long hours on the road and don't always get to spend as much time with their families as they would like. In a recent Texas case one trucker took his teenage son with him on the road.
Five years ago a father in Texas lost his son to a needless DWI accident. Today, that man is doing everything in his power to try to make Texas' roadways safe from individuals who choose to drink and drive.
With any new tool or strategy used by law enforcement or the Texas legal system in general, it is natural for critics to voice their concerns. Will the new system be cost-efficient? Most importantly, will the new system be effective in combating a reasonable problem in the state? Will the new system violate Texas citizens' rights?
A lot of people have fantasies of seeing their face and name in lights. Usually, those dreams involve a person's name up on a movie screen or something, not on a billboard listing criminals on the side of a Texas road.
A person's life can change in a split second. Many of us have learned that lesson the hard way. Some, however, don't get to live to learn the lesson, when a split moment means the difference between life and death. Such is the case for a woman who died in an El Paso car accident on Sunday.
