It is downright nerve-wracking to share a Texas roadway with a tractor-trailer. Nothing spells stress like a big rig barreling up behind or beside another vehicle on the highway. It goes without saying that when the driver of one of these massive vehicles decides to take to the passing lane, it is usually frightening for nearby motorists.
Although having a baby is typically a joyful and exciting experience, so many things can go wrong during the birthing process that expectant mothers are often a little nervous or worried about their impending labors and deliveries. Sadly, many babies in Texas and elsewhere suffer injury as they make their way through the birth canal. In fact, thousands of babies develop cerebral palsy after having been injured during birth.
Many women will give birth in Texas hospitals this year. For most, the experience will be joyful and exciting as they welcome their infants into their families and prepare to take them home. Others' experiences, however, will not be so wonderful, as it's likely some Texas hospital patients will be among those who suffer injury due to medical malpractice.
Streets that include parking on both sides are often difficult to navigate. When a driver is reckless, it makes matters that much worse. In June 2016, a fatal accident occurred in Texas that involved a woman who, according to witnesses, was speeding along a narrow road. The incident ended in tragedy.
Anyone who has ever traveled a busy Texas highway understands how unsettling it can be to be driving along when an enormous tractor-trailer comes barreling up from behind. These massive machines are part of an industry many consider the backbone of our society. Yet, driver fatigue, substance abuse and other problematic issues have made it dangerous to share the road with big rigs. A truck accident can occur at any time, and when one does, the result is often devastating.
