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.

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.

Fatal motor vehicle accidents can blindside family members

It is unhealthy to spend time in morbid contemplation about all the bad things that could possibly happen. In fact, to function and lead a happy life, it is best to retain a positive attitude and not dwell on the negative. But while this outlook is largely beneficial, it can also leave us in shock when we are forced to deal with sudden misfortune.

Dangers of distracted driving subject of TXDOT campaign

In April, the Texas Department of Transportation actively participates in National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. TXDOT has chosen "Talk/Text CRASH" as the name of its campaign to help alert the public to the dangers of driving while distracted. The hope is that the campaign will inspire Texans to refrain from using their cell phones while behind the wheel.

Fatal accident in Houston attributed to drunk driving

All drivers should know that it is incredibly dangerous to get behind the wheel while intoxicated. Somehow, this very obvious fact is lost on those who choose to drink and drive. Far too often, this supreme act of negligence leads to tragedy.

Houston plagued by fatalities caused by running of red lights

Without a doubt, Houston is one of the greatest cities in the United States. We have a thriving arts community, two major universities, some terrific teams to root for and even a NASA space facility. But while Houston leads the way in so many areas on a national level, there is one area in which we can use improvement; traffic safety at red lights.

Wrongful death suits can relieve financial hardships

Every year, far too many people lose their lives on the roadways of Texas. Often, the victims of fatal accidents leave behind loved ones who must try to rebuild their lives. What makes the situation even more unfair, is the fact that many of these deaths did not have to happen.

Statistics demonstrate dangers of holiday driving in Texas

Ready or not, we are rapidly approaching the holiday season. With Thanksgiving coming in November, followed by Christmas and New Year's around a month later, it is a sure bet that many Texans have plans to visit with friends and relatives. And it is having the opportunity to spend time with the one's we love that makes this time of the year so special.

Trivial distractions can lead to fatal car accidents

Life is filled with things that, at the moment, may seem very important, but are actually very trivial. For instance, a phone call to confirm an appointment or to gossip could feel like something that must be attended to immediately. So could listening to a new song, fixing hair, applying makeup or having a snack.

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.
