What is 'duty' in a Houston motor vehicle accident?


We previously explored the basics of the legal theory of negligence in Texas in the context of accidents involving commercial vehicles. The same idea generally applies, however, to actions involving injuries following any motor vehicle crash. To recover compensation for their injuries, the victim usually will attempt to show that the other party had a duty to the victim, breached that duty, and that the breach was both the direct and foreseeable cause of actual damage that occurred to the victim. Today, we'll take a look at this idea of duty.

What is 'negligence' in a Houston truck accident?


Large trucks are the lifeblood of the economy of Texas. Considering the size of the state, transporting goods from one place to another via the highways and byways constitutes a huge boon to both producers of those goods, the merchants who sell them, and the consumers who purchase them. No other form of transport offers the flexibility, reliability and price of trucking. However, this economic advantage comes at a price. Because trucks have to share the roads with other vehicles, mistakes made by truck drivers can have consequences, and deadly ones at that, considering the size and weight of the vehicles involved.

Houston rethinking safety after commercial vehicle accidents


Over four million people live in the Houston area. A good number of these people have to get to a job five days a week, and just about all of them have to leave the house for various reasons every day. One way the city has attempted to make traveling around the area easier is by adopting certain public transport systems, such as the MetroRail light rail system.

Taking action quickly after a truck accident in Houston


When it comes to vehicle accidents that occur on the roadways in Houston, the most immediate thought that most people have is to seek the appropriate medical treatment. That is obviously the best idea initially, but, after that, legal questions will need to be answered. Who or what caused the accident? Who was involved in the accident? And, in the event of a truck accident involving a semi-truck, will the trucking company try to put the blame on the other driver?

Car accidents present a danger to pedestrians


Our readers who are familiar with previous posts here are well aware of the dangers that Houston residents face whenever they get behind the wheel of a vehicle. Drunk driving, distracted driving and negligent commercial vehicle drivers are all a major concern for motorists. But, motorists in Texas aren't the only ones who need to be concerned about these dangers -- pedestrians are frequently in danger as well.
