The details of motor vehicle accidents

Driving in any large city can be stressful and often dangerous. With a population of over 2 million in Houston, Texas, tragic motor vehicle accidents are a common occurrence. Collisions, especially in this congested area, require immediate action regarding safety procedures and the legal protection of each party involved.  

What is negligent entrustment?

Imagine driving down Houston’s streets and being suddenly struck by another vehicle. The injuries you could potentially sustain in such an accident could result in an extended hospitalization, as well as time away from work as you recover. Thrown in the damage down to your vehicle, and you could be facing some enormous expenses. That is okay, however, because the driver that struck you has insurance, right? If he or she turns out to be a teen, maybe not.

Don't let a car crash wreck your life!

Car accidents occur in Texas on a daily basis. While motor vehicle crashes can be caused by any number of variables – from bad weather to tire blowouts to a deer jumping in front of your vehicle – the fact remains that the majority are caused by human error. Luckily, most accidents are minor, but even one fatal accident is too many, especially when it is your beloved family member or friend.

How to handle a road rage incident

Aggressive driving may not always be the result of road rage. If a motorist in Houston discovers that a nearby driver is suffering from road rage, though, there is a good chance that some similar behaviors are being displayed. According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, purposefully driving in an unsafe manner may be aggressive driving. However, if the situation also involves an intent to hurt someone else, it may be a case of road rage.

Aggressive driver responds to fender bender with violent attack

A Houston traffic accident can lead to anxiety or anger for the person who is not at fault. The initial physical shock of the collision, the damage to the vehicle and other concerns may even lead someone to act out their aggression. However, road rage can become more dangerous than a crash when a person allows the emotional response to the circumstances to overwhelm his or her judgment.

Auto collisions and the 4th of July

If you were hurt because of a reckless driver during the Fourth of July, you may be facing diverse challenges. From physical pain to financial devastation and mental flashbacks, the crash may have upended your life in numerous ways. Sadly, some people who were simply celebrating Independene Day have had their entire lives thrown into chaos because of the poor decisions of a reckless driver. The Martin Law Firm understands the struggles that victims of motor vehicle wrecks frequently endure in Houston, and in other Texas cities.

How to spot the signs of a drunk driver

Drunk driving is a serious problem for people in Texas, and for people throughout the country. Despite strict laws prohibiting motorists from drinking and driving, a number of people continue to engage in this deadly habit. In 2015 alone, at least 290,000 people in the U.S. were injured and 10,265 people were killed in drunk driving accidents, according to Mothers Against Drunk Driving. It is crucial that you know how to spot the signs of a drunk driver, so that you can minimize the risk of being involving in a fatal car accident.
