Pedestrian accident concerns and statistics for elderly adults

Cities like Houston and other metropolitan areas across the country are making efforts to improve pedestrian zones and access areas in hopes that such measures will help everything from tourism to public safety. Unfortunately, however, there is evidence to suggest that one demographic of pedestrian is becoming increasingly vulnerable to serious and fatal traffic accidents. That is why it is important for motorists and pedestrians alike to recognize the fact that elderly Americans are at serious risk of being struck by vehicles on the road.

Compensation and car accidents

No one wants to deal with a motor vehicle accident and when it does happen, you may be unsure of what your options are. Here at Grimes & Fertitta PC, we help victims of negligent drivers understand the types of compensation that are available. Compensation is a financial payment which is usually designed to reimburse you for damages and problems that are related to an accident.

Houston cyclists, pedestrians face greater risks now than in 2010

No matter who is at fault in a pedestrian accident, it is likely that the person on foot or on a bike will suffer the worse consequences from the incident. In Houston and across the country, many motor vehicle drivers fail to share the road or yield to pedestrians, causing serious injury or even death. Unfortunately, recent data shows that these incidents are on the rise.

Understanding electronic stability control in trucks

The federal government is now requiring trucks and buses that weigh more than 26,000 pounds to have electronic stability control systems. This is a key component of working toward reducing fatal trucking accidents in Texas and across the country, as the U.S. Transportation Secretary estimates it can save nearly 50 lives every year.
