Most car drivers can tell stories of near-misses with semi trucks. While many truck drivers show responsibility while on the Texas highways, some are careless in their mission. This negligence can often result in a collision and, sometimes, a fatal accident. Three men recently died in a fatal accident due to the inattentiveness of a semi-truck driver.
Consumers understandably assume that the items they purchase are tested and approved for the intended use. However, in spite of the efforts of the Consumer Product Safety Commission, there is a little-known provision that protects makers of potentially dangerous products from public disclosure. Texas residents who have been harmed by a defective product may be unaware that similar incidents may be linked to that item.
It is sad that a Texas resident risks his or her own life just to get in a car for a ride. Whether the driver of another vehicle has impaired senses from drug or alcohol use or is distracted from a cellphone or passengers in the car, his or her actions have the potential to negatively impact the lives of many others should they cause a serious accident. A recent fatal accident caused the deaths of two people.
Every day in Texas and across the country, thousands of people undergo surgical procedures. Thanks to modern technology and skilled doctors, the vast majority of surgeries are successful and often save lives. However, any time humans are involved, there will always be a chance for errors. Unfortunately, when doctors and other medical professionals make mistakes, patients and families suffer the consequences. Medical malpractice continues to be one of the leading causes of injury and death in the United States.
A collision can take place at any given moment, and the fallout of a crash could have a significant impact on the safety of everyone involved. The situation could be even more dire when commercial vehicles are present, as these incidents run a higher risk of leaving those involved with serious or life-altering injuries. A recent truck accident in Texas has reportedly claimed the life of a 43-year-old man.
