Jury awards victim precedent-setting award for truck accident

Sharing the Texas highways with large commercial vehicles can often be a nerve-wracking experience -- even for experienced motorists. Unfortunately, regardless of the precautions one may take to drive defensively, a serious truck accident can result in a victim suffering devastating injuries. Recently, a jury awarded one victim a precedent-setting amount in compensation for his multiple injuries.

Truck driver flees scene of fatal truck accident

Motorcycle enthusiasts have all sorts of reasons for enjoying rides in Texas. Some people cruise around for fun, ride in motorcycle clubs, race them or just collect them. It's a prideful hobby, but those who ride motorcycles also are aware of the dangers that come with doing so. The problem can be out of the control of the cyclist, though, when he or she has to rely on the other drivers on the road to be cognizant of the motorcycle as well. It's never expected when a motorcycle is involved in a truck accident.

Truck accident results in hazmat spill and lane closure

On any given day, the drivers of big rigs spend countless hours behind the wheel, traveling hundreds of miles throughout the state of Texas, before reaching their destinations. While most drivers make it to their destination unharmed, others are not so fortunate. In a recent truck accident, one trucker lost his life and another was injured after two trucks collided.

Poor truck maintenance leads to deadly, fiery crash

For many Texas residents, traveling by roadway is a daily necessity, especially for drivers of 18-wheelers. As these drivers travel daily and nightly to meet delivery deadlines, it is possible for regular truck maintenance to be overlooked or delayed. In a recent semi-truck crash, poor truck maintenance may be to blame for a fiery collision that took the life of a pickup truck driver.

Texas truck accident caused by negligent motorcyclist

For many licensed motorists, crossing the center line is a frightening, yet common occurrence. While some drivers catch a lucky break, and make it to their destination unscathed, many others are not so fortunate. This proved true in a recent truck accident in Texas, that claimed the life of a motorcyclist when the two vehicles collided.

Texas multi-vehicle crash believed to be caused by trucker error

Every day along Texas freeways, there is the risk of getting caught up in a serious car accident. While the majority of motorists make every effort to operate their vehicles conscientiously, other drivers do not take the same care and consideration. A recent multi-car accident left one woman with serious injuries and seems to have been caused by a trucker error.

Easing diabetic restrictions may lead to truck accident risk

For years, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has barred some truck drivers with a chronic illness from operating large commercial vehicles. However, it is now contemplating allowing some drivers with diabetes to hit the highways again. However, will this decision result in more Texas residents facing a higher risk of being involved in a serious truck accident?

Long hours make for high risk of truck driver fatigue

Federal regulations that stipulate how long a trucker may drive exist for good reason. Limiting the number of hours behind the wheel is intended to reduce the risk of an operator suffering from truck driver fatigue. However, this is often a difficult regulation to enforce, sometimes resulting in deadly accidents in Texas that devastate the lives of victims and their families.
