When the Drunk Driver Isn’t at Fault in a Texas Auto Accident

Auto Accidents | Drunk Driving Accidents

Common sense would seem to tell you that if someone is drinking and driving in our state and you get into an accident with them, they’re the one who’s going to be at fault. After all, everyone knows that it’s illegal to drive while intoxicated.

Moreover, it’s common knowledge that alcohol makes you impaired. Stands to reason that the impaired individual is the one that caused the crash, right?

The Drunk Driver Isn’t Always Found Liable

For better or worse, it is not always the case that the impaired individual is the one who caused the accident, and Texas law recognizes this. While it is certainly true that driving drunk will increase someone’s chances of being found liable if they [...]

What to Consider Before You Settle Your TX Motorcycle Accident Claim

Auto Accidents | Motorcycle Accidents

Despite being one of the finest states for a scenic motorcycle ride, Texas is also among the most dangerous states for motorcyclists.

Every year, hundreds of motorcyclists die in accidents on Texas roads. An estimated 16% of all automotive deaths in our state involve motorcycles. And every year, thousands of motorcyclists are seriously injured in accidents in Texas.

No matter how hard you try to stay safe, motorcycle accidents do happen. That’s why we compiled this guide to help you protect your rights as a motorcycle crash victim.

First Steps to Take After a Motorcycle Accident

Many Texans Are Choosing Road Trips Over Flights For Summer Vacation

Auto Accidents

With lockdowns ending and summer (literally) heating up, families around the country have started thinking about getting out of town. In Texas this year, that appears to mean hitting the road for a trip.

That’s right. Many Texas families are choosing not to fly this summer — both to avoid the costs and the potential dangers from exposure to the virus. They are opting to take road trips instead. Unfortunately, with the increase in cars on the road, and with many not having driven much in months, there is an increase in the potential for auto accidents.

Below, we’re going to cover some ways that you can stay safe while driving on Texas highways. We’ll also cover what you [...]

Getting to Work When Your Car’s Totaled by a TX Uninsured Motorist

Auto Accidents | Auto Insurance Claims

Getting in a car accident is stressful on its own. Finding out that the other driver is uninsured can ruin your week. It’s illegal not to have motorist insurance in Texas. Unfortunately, you will still run into people without it – or, more likely, they’ll run into you.

One of the last things on our minds at that moment…you still need to get to work. Someone else’s lack of insurance is now affecting whether you can pay your bills. This is why underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage is required in Texas.

The problem is, most of us sign up for it without ever really understanding what underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage is and how it works, and some insurance companies are counting on [...]

Hit by a TX Drunk Driver Over New Year’s? The Clock’s Already Ticking

Auto Accidents | Drunk Driving Accidents

If you happened to be one of the unlucky victims of an NYE drunk driving accident in Texas this year, you’re probably still dealing with the aftermath – pressing charges, filing a civil suit, or simply dealing with your own medical issues as a result.

Not A Day Into 2020 and 3 DFW Drunk Drivers, 7 Victims Reported

One Lewisville woman was driving while intoxicated, for instance, and hit another vehicle in the early morning hours. A female passenger in the other vehicle died, and the male driver was critically injured.

A Fort Worth head-on collision just before midnight killed two other people. Although the cause of the accident had not been officially determined yet, the other driver is suspected [...]

Texas Has a Fatal Car Crash Problem

Auto Accidents | Auto Insurance Claims

Think back to 2000. A lot has happened between then and now. We have iPhones now, our cars have Bluetooth. Fads have come and gone.

One thing that hasn’t changed since November 7, 2000? At least one person has died every single day on Texas roads. That translates to at least one family left without a loved one — in their place, the costs, financial and otherwise, of that person’s death.

Take two teenagers who were recently killed on Texas Highway 59. One victim’s family is now responsible for looking after the victim’s 1-year-old daughter. The other had to set up a GoFundMe to cover airfare to fly the victim’s body home to Houston from San Antonio for a proper [...]

Why Do Back Injuries Occur in So Many Texas Car Crashes?

Auto Accidents | Personal Injury

Tens of thousands of Americans die in car crashes every year, and another 3 million people suffer from related injuries or disabilities. That translates to around 9,000 people suffering serious or permanent injuries due to auto wrecks.

You could walk away from a car crash with any type of injury. Broken bones, concussions, or cuts may occur. By and large, however, the type of injury that occurs more often than others: back injuries.

Furthermore, those injuries affecting the back can be especially debilitating. They can impact your ability to play sports, walk, or even bend and twist.

Understand the connection between back injuries and car crashes. Because when you can prove that your back pain is directly related [...]
