Tracy Morgan's recovery from truck accident on display at Emmys

When comedian Tracy Morgan made a surprise entrance at this year's Emmy Awards, it marked the first time he's made a live appearance in public since being involved in a serious truck accident. In June 2014, the limousine in which Mr. Morgan was traveling was struck by a truck driver who had allegedly not slept for 28 hours. Mr. Morgan was severely injured in the crash. A fellow comedian and friend of Mr. Morgan's, James McNair, was also in the limo and died as a result of the crash.

What should I look for when choosing a motorcycle helmet?

Riding a motorcycle around Houston can be fun, but challenging. There are some scenic routes you can take for pleasure rides, but there also many congested thoroughfares. Motorcyclists are so physically vulnerable that they must always keep an eye out for potential dangers. It is all too easy for an unexpected hazard to cause a rider to take a serious spill.

Aggressive driving can include improper lane changes

The roads of Texas simply are not as safe as most residents of the state might hope. Unfortunately, although many drivers do their best to remain attentive and carefully obey the rules of the road, there are still all too many who do the opposite. Sadly, it is these drivers that put everyone else at risk, causing devastating accidents that often result in serious injuries or even fatal consequences.

What can you do after a fatal accident?

Every year in Texas, a shocking number of lives are lost in accidents on the roads. Some of these deaths are the result of tragic, but unpreventable incidents. However, others occur as a result of the negligence or recklessness of others. The irresponsible actions of such drivers put everyone else at risk and frequently devastate families throughout the state.

Jackknifing does not always constitute negligence

Drivers on roads in Texas see trucks almost every day. They are a common sight throughout the state and a critical part of US infrastructure. However, like all vehicles on the roads, trucks can often become caught up in serious accidents. When this occurs, the consequences are often devastating for all concerned and many other vehicles can become embroiled in the collision.

Is drunk driving intentional misconduct?

Being involved in an accident on the roads is always a distressing experience. However, when you discover that the cause of the accident was that someone was driving drunk, you may also feel angry and anxious to seek justice. It is a frustrating and terrifying thought that there are still so many drivers who will get behind the wheel when they are under the influence of alcohol. Sadly, DUI accidents happen in Texas all the time, and the only recourse left to the victims is to pursue compensation and hope for a swift and full recovery.

Texas crash sends man to hospital

Every year in Texas, innumerable motorcyclists lose their lives in accidents on the roads. Worse still, many of these tragic incidents are preventable and happen because someone else on the road failed to drive with due care and attention. Motorcyclists are more vulnerable to injuries in the event of a crash as they do not have the protective shell of a vehicle around them. Even a helmet and other protective gear is not always enough to save them from serious harm.

Stop immediately if you are involved in a crash

When accidents occur on the roads, they can often be extremely serious, leaving the victims with grave injuries, or worse. Sadly, it is something that occurs in Texas all too often, as there are still too many negligent, reckless and careless drivers on the roads. A single mistake on the part of any of these individuals can quickly lead to a devastating accident, in which innocent people are put at risk.

Fault does not always lie with a driver

Every year in Texas sees innumerable accidents on the roads, many of which are caused by the negligence or recklessness of road users. Whether they are driving cars, vans or trucks, or even riding motorcycles, a single mistake can cause devastation and everyone else on the road is put at risk. Motor vehicle accidents often result in victims being seriously injured. Worse still, a large number of these incidents prove fatal.

How is liability proven in a truck accident case?

Not all truck drivers in Texas exercise the appropriate level of diligence and care when they are behind the wheel. Some even fail to take into account the potentially hazardous nature of the load their vehicle bears. A truck crash can have devastating enough consequences without having to factor in the possibility of the truck's cargo catching fire, exploding or posing any other risk to those caught up in the incident.
