Texas family struggles to recover after car accident

Recovering from a car accident is often a slow, painful process. In fact, many people find that they suffer pain or lack of mobility for years after being injured in an accident. Even more tragic may be watching one's child suffer such injuries. One Texas family anticipates dealing with the aftermath of a recent accident for many years to come, and they are already struggling financially to meet the mounting medical expenses.

A mother was traveling north on a Texas highway with her 4-year-old son in the car. The driver of another vehicle traveling beside the woman attempted to switch lanes and hit the mother's car. As the 28-year-old mother lost control of the vehicle, it struck a median divider and rolled. Both the mother and her son were ejected from the car.

Should I handle a car insurance claim by myself?

If you drive a car, you know that you should carry car insurance. However, just because you have a policy doesn't mean that you will receive fair treatment when it is time to file a claim after an accident.

Many people think that their insurers are there to protect them, but this is not always the case. Insurance companies are businesses, and like any other business, they are primarily concerned with their own bottom line.

Texas police seek driver following horrific motorcycle accident

It is rarely a surprise to hear that motorcycles are more likely to be involved in motor vehicle accidents than other vehicles. Similarly, the injuries a biker suffers are likely to be catastrophic because of the lack of protection a bike affords. It seems to be a common refrain that drivers involved in accidents with motorcycles did not see the bike. However, what Texas bikers may find even more upsetting is when a driver does not stop after striking a motorcycle.

Texas police are still searching for the driver who failed to stop after running over a man on a motorcycle. The two vehicles were waiting side by side in parallel left-turn lanes when the light turned green and the lanes of traffic began to move. For unknown reasons, the larger vehicle failed to turn left and instead proceeded straight, running over the motorcycle as it attempted to turn left. The driver did not stop.

Beloved Texas teacher dies in fatal car accident

When a person dies in a tragic accident, it often affects people in very wide circles. In fact, people seldom realize how many lives they touch, even when they personally encounter thousands in their lifetime. One Texas woman is being mourned after a motor vehicle accident took her life. In her family, her church and her community, the woman was loved and admired.

As a kindergarten teacher for many years, the victim shared her optimism with her students. When she retired, she continued to volunteer, touching even more lives with her generosity. Members of her church experienced her compassion and her devotion to God, her two children and her grandchildren. These attributes became a memory after a terrible accident on a recent morning around 8 a.m.

Texas family wants alert system for drunk drivers

Despite stiffer penalties and greater public awareness campaigns, drunk driving continues to plague the nation's highways. Each year, Texas families are robbed of loved ones, and innocent victims suffer catastrophic injuries when people choose to drive drunk. One family is hoping the loss of their loved one will bring some good to others by preventing fatal accidents in the future.

The man was heading to work around 3 a.m., driving south when his car was hit head-on by a vehicle heading north in the southbound lane. The victim and the wrong-way driver both died in the accident. Police believe alcohol may have been the reason why the man believed at fault was driving on the wrong side of the highway. The man had two previous arrests for DWI.

Texas semi accident leaves many injured

Most law enforcement agencies have seen more than their fair share of tractor-trailer accidents. Unfortunately, such accidents seem to be happening with more frequency despite increasing federal safety regulations for the trucking industry. The tragic fact is that many 18-wheeler accidents that result in catastrophic injuries and fatalities are often preventable. A recent accident in Texas is still under investigation, but it contains familiar factors.

The accident occurred Monday morning when a tractor-trailer operator failed to brake as traffic slowed down for a construction zone. The truck rammed into the back of several passenger cars, causing a chain reaction. The truck then tipped over and clipped a dump truck, which was then propelled into another vehicle.

Texas boy injured by hit-and-run at dangerous intersection

Victims of car accidents may suffer any number of injuries, depending on the severity of the accident. When the accident involves a pedestrian, the odds are against the victim. With no vehicle to protect them, pedestrians often suffer catastrophic injuries from which they may never fully recover. One young victim of a hit-and-run in Texas continues to fight for his life.

The 13-year-old student was crossing a well-marked pedestrian crossing when a minivan struck him at a high rate of speed. An 18-year-old man driving the minivan allegedly failed to stop to render aid. Witnesses say the victim lay on the road breathing but unresponsive. He was taken to a Texas hospital with a skull fracture for which doctors needed to place him in a medically induced coma. He also suffered a broken leg and bruises on his ribs.

Don't forego professional help in your commercial truck accident

It is never wise to handle a personal injury settlement by yourself, and it is even more unwise to try to handle a personal injury settlement alone when it involves a commercial vehicle. If you suffered injuries in an accident involving a commercial vehicle, it is crucial for you to get proper legal help so that you do not miss out on fair compensation.

Pursuing compensation from an accident with a commercial vehicle is significantly more complicated than a traditional car accident between two private parties. Maybe someone in your family or community told you that you should simply leave the matter up to the insurance companies — but this could be a mistake that cheats you out of thousands of dollars that you rightfully deserve.

Jury convicts Texas man who swerved into motorcycle

Those who ride motorcycles know they cannot take their safety for granted. Many accidents involving motorcycles occur because other drivers fail to see the smaller vehicles. However, a viral video about a recent motorcycle accident may cause strong emotions in Texas motorists, whether they ride bikes or not.

The video was recorded from the helmet camera of a motorcyclist riding on a two-lane road. The footage shows two friends on a bike ahead speeding up the center line to pass a row of cars. Suddenly one car abruptly swerved into the motorcycle sent it and its riders skidding across the road onto the shoulder. The bike's 37-year-old operator got to his feet slowly, but his 38-year-old passenger remained on the ground. The two were subsequently taken to the hospital where the passenger was placed in intensive care.

Texas driver admits texting before fatal motor vehicle accident

Ten percent of traffic fatalities involve driver distraction, and the number of fatalities seems to increase each year. Despite this, Texas is one of the few states that has not banned texting behind the wheel, although some local ordinances forbid it. The amount of time drivers spend with their eyes on a device rather than on the road is often enough to cause fatal motor vehicle accidents. A recent collision is a prime example of the devastation that may result.

A man driving a pickup truck allegedly admitted he was texting in the moments before his truck crossed the center line and crashed head-on into a church bus carrying 14 passengers. Twelve passengers, ranging in age from 61 to 87, died at the scene, and another died at the hospital. The 20-year-old driver of the truck was hospitalized with injuries.
