Truck accidents have many causes, including driver error

Last week, we discussed how underride guards can have a big impact on some truck accident cases. That isn't the only thing that can have an impact on trucking accident cases. Our Texas readers might be interested in learning about some of the factors that can lead to an accident.

Failure to monitor isn't excuse for birth injury

Last week, we discussed how important labor monitoring is for a pregnant woman and her unborn baby. As we discussed in that blog post, when women aren't adequately monitored, issues can creep up that can cause harm to the mother, the baby or both. Our Texas readers might be very upset when they think about how someone's unwillingness to keep an eye on the woman in labor might lead to those types of issues.

Is an underride guard important in my Texas truck accident case?

Many motorists who have been involved in truck accidents are sometimes confused as to why their attorneys seem to fixate on certain facts. That's because in truck accident cases, it is your attorney's job to review every aspect of your case and discover evidence that may result in the most favorable outcome for you.

Monitoring during labor is vital to prevent some birth injuries

Any woman who is going into a hospital or birthing center knows that she will be monitored, at least periodically, throughout her labor. This is done in an effort to make sure that the stress of the labor process doesn't harm the mother or baby. While this monitoring is usually effective, it isn't foolproof. There are some instances in which Texas mothers or their unborn babies might end up suffering injuries because the monitoring isn't done effectively or isn't interpreted properly. In those cases, the mother has the option of seeking compensation for her injuries through a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Drunk driving accident numbers might be falling thanks to Uber

Everyone who reads our blog knows that drunk driving accidents can lead to serious accidents. A recent report from Mothers Against Drunk Driving and the car service Uber has noted that the use of the Uber app has led to a decrease in those accidents. Our Texas readers might find this report rather interesting.

What can be done to reduce Texas drunk driving accidents?

Texas motorists have a right to use state roadways without risking serious injury or death at the hands of drunk drivers. Unfortunately, Texas leads the nation with the amount of traffic fatalities caused by drivers impaired by alcohol. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, at least 1,337 Texans died in 2013 as a result of irresponsible people getting behind the wheel after they've been drinking.
