Texas child dies when school bus is hit by train

All across the nation, millions of kids board buses each day to get to and from their schools. Most arrive safely at their destinations, and many Texas parents appreciate the service of having their children taken from their neighborhoods and directly to their schools without having to deal with school-time traffic. Very rarely, accidents involving school buses occur, but when they do, children's lives can be put at risk.

Why is it dangerous to drive while distracted?

Modern Americans are busier than ever. As the struggle to keep up with their careers, stay on top of their family commitments and maintain their relationships with their friends, they may struggle to balance all of the tasks that they must complete in any given day. For this reason, Texas residents can look for opportunities to multitask so that they can get more done in less time.

Know the risks: Truck crashes and their causes

Big rig accidents are some of the most dangerous on the roads. With any big rig accident, the vehicle is so heavy that there is a potential to roll and crush or hit and crush other vehicles. There is a risk of exposure to hazardous materials in some instances, and there is also the risk of impacting multiple vehicles with the same commercial vehicle.

Can pedestrians legally stay on the highway?

A common question for those who are involved in traffic accidents on highways is if there is ever a time when a pedestrian has a right to be adjacent to or in the roadway. If you hit a pedestrian who is crossing the highway or is on the side of the road, is it really your fault? Are highways supposed to be free of pedestrians? This is a more complicated question than you may think.

Forklift accidents and injuries are all too common

Forklifts are common work machines that Texas residents may see in warehouses, construction zones, and other industrial areas. While they can be relatively small, forklifts are powerful vehicles that can lift heavy loads and carry them over substantial distances. It is when individuals make poor choices and careless mistakes in the presence of forklifts that they can become dangerous workplace tools.
