Dallas freeway collision claims the life of truck driver

When collisions between semi-trucks and other vehicles occur in San Antonio, it may easy for many to automatically assign blame to the truck drivers involved. After all, theirs are the biggest vehicles involved, and typically, they are the ones most likely to walk away from such accidents unharmed (again, due to the size of their trucks). Yet what many do not fully appreciate is the amount of training these drivers go through in order to avoid accidents. Often such training causes them to be more aware of what is going on around them than other drivers. The notion that they are rarely injured in accidents may also be untrue. 

Street racing accident injures Uber driver

Ride-share services such as Uber and Lyft not only make it easier for people in San Antonio to get to where they need to be, but they also offer local residents the chance to make a few extra dollars on top of their regular jobs. Of course, working as a driver brings with it certain risks, the chief among those being an increased risk of being in a car accident due to the added time spent on the road. Uber does offer some insurance protection (depending on where a driver was in relation to transporting a fare), yet securing insurance reimbursement in a ride-share accident can often be a tricky proposition. 

Who faces the consequences in an uber accident?

One of today's most notable advancements is that of Uber and Lyft services. With the click of just one button, passengers can safely arrive to their destinations, free from the hassle of busy subways and long and potentially dangerous walks home. With this luxury, however, comes the usual risks of travelling on the road. Many Texans have been in the unfortunate situation of an Uber accident, but are unsure of where to turn after such a incident occurs.

Understanding ride-sharing insurance coverage

When car accidents happen in San Antonio, those involved in them are often left to deal with issues that go beyond recovering from injuries and repairing their vehicles. One such issue (that happens to be directly related to the two that were previously stated) is dealing with insurance providers. Given that Texas is currently not a no-fault state when it comes to auto insurance, accident victims can typically rely on the liability insurance of the at-fault drivers to cover a portion of their expenses. Yet what happens when accidents occur involving Uber or Lyft drivers? 

Driving wrong-way down highway leads to more deaths

One surprise most people do not expect when driving on the Texas highways is a motor vehicle coming towards them, in the wrong direction. However, this wrong-way driving, while not necessarily a frequent occurrence, occurs with enough regularity to be of concern to the public.

Improving texas safety efforts for pedestrians

With significant city growth comes a plethora of opportunities, not to mention the pride of watching one's surroundings thrive as a community. In addition to hot spots such as Denver and Nashville, areas in Texas are also on the up-and-up. San Antonio has long been known for its popular urban attractions blended with a rich history. But as with many major cities, traffic safety has become a growing concern alongside these attractions.

Black Friday fender benders? The dangers of Thanksgiving travel

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, you're probably already thinking about sitting down to carve a turkey with your family and friends. For many, getting to those family and friends involves travel. In fact, Thanksgiving is one of the holidays with the highest amount of traffic and travel, as families prepare to gather in celebration of gratitude and togetherness.

Don't go to sleep on safe driving: The danger of drowsy drivers

When you think of the specific threats that compromise the safety and well-being of Texas drivers, distracted driving and drunk driving probably come to mind. While these two negligent behaviors are incredibly dangerous, there is growing evidence that drowsy driving could also be one the leading risks to motorist safety.

Sorting through the physical and emotional debris of a car crash

You probably remember the sounds of metal crashing, glass breaking and other noises associated with your car accident. Perhaps you can still picture the wreckage and debris strewn across a Texas roadway. Of course, if your injuries rendered you unconscious at the time, you may have absolutely no recollection at all of the events leading up to or following your collision. Either way, the recovery process can be long and arduous; a key to success often lies in the type of support available to you.
