Are there any additional tips to prevent motorcycle accidents?

There are many reasons why motorcyclists have catastrophic injuries as a result of a collision with another vehicle. In Dallas, Texas, where there is a large population of motorcyclists, local residents are aware of the risks involved in riding a motorcycle. The vehicle itself offers little protection to its rider, unlike a car, which is equipped with seatbelts and protects the driver inside a metal frame. Because of this, riders should be more cautious whenever they operate their vehicles. They may also read some tips that will help them to avoid motorcycle accidents and injuries.

How to avoid a collision with a large truck

Motorists travelling on major roads and highways in Dallas often find themselves driving next to large trucks, such as tractor trailers and 18-wheelers. In a car accident the sheer size of these vehicles can deal huge amounts of damage to smaller vehicles. Some of our readers may have experienced such a collision between two or more cars and seen the destruction. However, car accidents are often minor compared to collisions involving trucks. Texas residents, especially those who operate their vehicles on a regular basis, should learn the basics of driving next to a truck. Having knowledge can help motorists navigate safely and avoid truck accidents.

Handling complex wrongful death cases

Fatal accidents are an unfortunate fact of life everywhere in the country, including Texas. Too often, however, someone died because of the actions or inactions of one or more people, thus putting those people at fault. As a result, a wrongful death lawsuit is likely if the fact of negligence can be proven in court. A wrongful death claim allows surviving family members to seek compensation from the party deemed most responsible for a fatal accident. The types of accidents and fatal events include car crashes, negligent acts of medical malpractice and dangerous properties. Filing a wrongful death case, however, can be challenging.

Police search driver in a fatal hit-and-run accident

Car accidents are often associated with severe injuries and fatalities. Here in Dallas, Texas, local residents understand that they can be compensated for their injuries if the accident was a result of the negligence of another person. In a fatal car accident, the driver who caused the crash could face civil and criminal liabilities. However, such legal actions will not progress if the responsible driver has not been apprehended by the police. This was the case in Arlington where a 20-year-old student was killed in a hit-and-run accident.
