Texas man dies in three-car accident

There are accidents that occur all over the United States every day. Some are unavoidable because people are driving in a safe, responsible manner, but there are many that occur due to drivers not paying attention or driving recklessly while they are on the road. Although these negligent drivers often endanger the lives of others, they don't always cause an accident. However, when they do, it can leave others on the road, as well as the driver, seriously injured or even dead.

What can happen when a motorcyclist fails to wear a helmet

A motorcycle is one of the most exciting vehicles on the planet to drive. The incredible feeling of danger and freedom that many enjoy so much makes the experience better, but it is also why some motorcyclists aren't too happy about wearing a helmet. However, it is important that they do because of the things that could occur if they fail to do so.

Is jackknifing always a result of the driver's negligence?

While driving any vehicle, you are at risk of being involved in an accident. You may pay attention and follow the laws of the road, but that doesn't mean everyone else is doing the same thing. Even people who you'd expect to be careful drivers, like truck drivers, can find themselves at fault for an accident that injures or kills another driver on the road.

Find witnesses to help with your case

It is assumed that anyone who drinks alcohol will be wise enough to not get behind the wheel of a car and drive. This is a law that everyone knows about, but people still disobey and drive after they have been drinking, completely disregarding the fact that they could get into an accident and injure or kill themselves or someone else. Should an accident occur and they are found guilty of drunk driving, it could change their life in a number of ways.

What should I do right away after an auto accident?

Car accidents happen every day in the United States, and they often leave people injured or dead. Those lucky enough to walk away should be grateful to still have their lives, but that doesn't mean they should let the reckless and negligent driver who caused the accident off easy. People are expected to be responsible drivers, so when they fail to do so, the people that they affect should not be afraid to take action and file a claim against them.

 

Reasons adjustments are made to a jury's award

Wrongful death cases are not the easiest for people to handle because of the many emotions they may be experiencing during this time. In the midst of dealing with their loss, they must fight to recover damages and pick up the pieces. For many, things will not go back to normal, but with the help of the money they recover for damages, they can start to move on. Unfortunately, the final amount they receive from the liable party isn't determined by them, which means they could end up with more or less than they expected.

Motorcyclist dead after Plano, Texas crash

Here in Texas, with our open roads and sunny skies, we have some of the best byways for riding a motorcycle. But, just like every other state, we also have drivers who don't see motorcycles or are even openly hostile to the ones they do see. In addition, our roads are filled with intoxicated drivers and drivers who feel the inexplicable need to send a text while they're driving.

All of these factors can spell disaster for a motorcyclist, especially considering that they don't have the protections that other vehicles have. That means if a car collides with you, you're going to hit the pavement. And that's exactly what happened in Plano, Texas recently.

Don't ignore manufacturer's safety recalls

Motorcycles are very fun to ride, but just like other motor vehicles, they need to be properly maintained and cared for by their owners. There are a few maintenance tasks that people do on a regular basis, but there are times when a bike needs to be repaired because of things that occur out of the ordinary. A good example of this is when a part needs to be repaired because it is defective.

Why certain compensation systems can cause accidents

It is expected of every driver who gets behind the wheel of a vehicle that they make smart decisions and follow the laws of the road. Many people live up to this expectation and are never negligent, but there are others who fail to do what they need to do to avoid an accident. This may happen for many reasons, but when it comes to truck drivers, it could be the compensation system their employer has in place.

Do officers always test a driver's blood alcohol level?

Every day, people get into their car and decide to drive home while they are intoxicated. Some people make it to their destination, but unfortunately, others will end up causing a fatal accident. Should this happen, there are a number of things the police might do following the accident, including testing the blood alcohol level of all parties involved.
