Why must truck cargo be properly secured?

It is not a common sight, but it is possible that some readers of this Texas legal blog have seen the following event occur. While driving down the freeway, they spot a big rig ahead of them. But instead of traveling straight down its lane, the big rig is swerving from side to side, threatening to cross the lane markers and to crash into other vehicles. It may look like the truck's driver is drunk or asleep at the wheel, but in fact the rig may be suffering from a serious safety issue: improperly secured cargo.

4 reasons rural areas pose a risk to drivers

Motor vehicle accidents can take place anywhere, but one of the riskiest locations is in rural areas. While most people believe that cities and towns are the most dangerous, rural areas have their own challenges that make it more likely to see people getting into crashes.

Falls are a problem for American workers

According to data published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics nearly 800 men and women died in 2014 in workplace accidents that involved falls. These victims had employment in many different industries and suffered their fatal incidents while performing different work-related functions. In Texas, workers are subject to dangerous falls when they are not prepared to safely undertake the tasks the employers are of them.

Teen drivers are a risk, but parents can help prevent crashes

Teenagers may be new to driving, but that doesn't mean they can't develop the skills necessary to stay safe when they are on the roads. It is important for teenagers to understand that those between 16 and 19 are more likely to be involved in fatal crashes than adults. In fact, fatal crashes involving teens happen around four times more often than crashes involving those between the ages of 25 and 69.
