Focus on drowsy driving awareness

As any driver knows, there are many ways to get into motor vehicle accidents, making car crashes one of the biggest hazards facing people today. Whether the risk is getting hurt by a drunk driver, someone texting and driving, an aggressive driver or a person who loses control and engages in road rage, drivers have a lot to watch out for. Drowsy driving is another concern for residents of Texas and elsewhere.

Cognitive distraction and cellphone use causes accidents

Cognitive distraction is just one type of distraction drivers can experience while behind the wheel. When motorists are engaged in two tasks simultaneously, their brain bounces back and forth between the two activities. According to the National Safety Council, this leaves moments in time where the motorist is not concentrating on the road at all. During these moments, a driver’s ability to respond to objects in the road, pedestrians, bicyclists, bad weather conditions and other drivers is compromised. This can lead to serious accidents, death and injuries.

Deadly underride accidents can be prevented

Sharing the road with tractor-trailers and big rigs is intimidating, to say the least. You probably don't need to hear reports of fatal crashes involving commercial vehicles in Texas to appreciate the damage that can occur in a collision with one. While you may be most familiar with crashes related to the cab of a truck, many deadly accidents involve the truck's trailer.

How do you prove wrongful death?

If you recently lost a loved one in Texas as the result of someone’s negligence or misconduct, you may wish to file a wrongful death suit against that person. FindLaw explains that in a wrongful death suit, you sue the person whose negligence or misconduct caused your loved one’s death so as to recover the economic losses brought about when your loved one died.
