What is different about a commercial vehicle accident?

Our readers in Houston know that car accidents are common. After all, Houston is one of the largest cities in the country, and with a large population comes more commuters and more car accidents. But, some people may not realize that an accident that involves a passenger vehicle and a commercial vehicle will likely have some different factors to consider beyond those at issue in the common "fender bender."

Distracted drivers will be a topic in special legislative session

Distracted driving continues to be one of the most prominent traffic-related issues that states throughout the country are addressing. While most states have already passed some form of legislation to address certain aspects of distracted driving, particularly texting and driving, state legislatures continue to "tweak" some provisions of their laws.

Fighting misplaced assumptions after a motorcycle accident

Contrary to what many people might think, riding a motorcycle can be safer than driving a passenger vehicle. Motorcycles tend to be more maneuverable than cars, and motorcyclists don't have to worry as much about blind spots due to their greater field of peripheral vision. However, there are those who will still harbor some misplaced assumptions about people who ride motorcycles. They might think that motorcyclists are "thrill seekers," or that they are more prone to violate traffic laws. These assumptions on their own might not be a big concern to our readers, but they can be difficult assumptions to overcome in the aftermath of a motorcycle accident.

How dangerous are distracted drivers?

We all have heard about the dangers of distracted driving. With the popularity of smartphones, tablets and social media to keep today's generation seemingly glued to their devices, it comes as no surprise to many in Texas that distracted driving and subsequent serious, catastrophic and even deadly accidents have become almost an epidemic throughout the country.
