Your Guide to Texas Parking Lot Accidents

Auto Accidents | Parking Lot Accidents

You’d think that after leaving the traffic-congested streets and pulling into a parking lot, you would be far less likely to have a car accident. Unfortunately, that’s far from what’s happening in Texas today. In fact, the Institute for Highway Safety warns that about 20% of all auto accidents occur within parking lots.

Sure, you might think, but how bad can parking lot crashes really be?

A recent incident that took place in one of the busy strip malls in Dallas puts the seriousness of parking lot accidents into perspective.

Preventing Texas Construction Accidents: Proven Techniques

Construction Accidents

OSHA says a safe workplace is a sound business, and when the Texas Department of Insurance reports nearly $5k as the average income lost per construction job incident last year, we are inclined to agree.

If you are looking to decrease the likelihood of construction site injuries affecting your business’s productivity, OSHA recently updated their Recommended Practices for Safety and Health Programs in Construction. These guidelines were designed with a wide variety of small and medium-sized business settings in mind, offering a great step-by-step approach to implementing baseline safety and health programs in the construction industry workplace.

Regarding some of the most common accidents at Texas construction sites in particular, this post addresses three areas where you can apply a [...]
