Assisting those who have been hurt in a truck accident

After a truck accident, victims may have no idea of how to piece their life back together. Aside from physical pain and mental trauma, people who are hurt in a truck collision may struggle with significant financial challenges, such as the inability to pay their medical expenses. As a result, it is crucial for truck accident victims in Houston, and across the state of Texas, to handle their situation correctly. At Grimes & Fertitta, P.C., we recognize how physically and emotionally painful it can be for victims of these crashes to recover.

Authorities investigating Texas pedestrian accident

When a pedestrian is struck by a negligent driver, their entire life may change in an instant. Tragically, some are unable to survive the accident, while others are left with serious injuries that are very painful (and sometimes permanent). In Houston, Texas, and throughout the U.S., there are many reasons why pedestrian accidents continue to occur. However, these accidents can ruin lives, regardless of whether someone was hit by a drunk driver or distracted driver. As a result, everyone on the road should understand the potential consequences of a pedestrian accident and do everything they can to avoid an accident.

What is distracted driving?

When operating a motor vehicle, a distraction is any activity that takes the motorist’s focus off the business of driving. For drivers in Texas and most other states around the country, the term has come to be associated with cell phone use, particularly texting. While text messaging and talking on the phone can certainly draw attention away from the task at hand—to safely operate a moving vehicle—other actions can shift the driver’s attention from the road with the same dire consequences.
