Fatal motor vehicle accidents often due to speeding

Three people recently lost their lives in a tragic fiery crash in Texas. The collision, which involved a car and a semitruck, occurred during the early morning hours on a recent Wednesday. Sometimes these types of motor vehicle accidents occur due to negligent or reckless driving, which is grounds for wrongful death litigation in the Lone Star State.

The accident took place at about 2:15 a.m. along Interstate 30. According to authorities, a car carrying three individuals was traveling at over 100 mph on the highway. All of a sudden, the car struck the road's center median, hit the back part of a semitruck and caught fire.

Motor vehicle accidents: Texas crash claims 4 children

Car accidents that cause losses of life are tragic, but they are especially tragic when those deaths involve children. Such was the case in a recent collision in Texas near Bastrop. Just as in any situation where motor vehicle accidents claim the lives of children, their parent or guardians can file wrongful death lawsuits against the driver deemed responsible for the crash.

The accident occurred on Friday, March 29, at some time after 9 p.m. Two cars were involved in the wreck on State Highway 21. Upon arriving on the scene, authorities discovered that four children had been killed. The driver of that car was also injured and remains in a coma.

Family law proceeding of divorce can impact the children

Even a relatively amicable marital dissolution process can have a negative impact on young children. Unfortunately, this means that hostile family law proceedings can be incredibly difficult for young children to cope with. Here are a couple of tips that may help divorcing parents in Texas to keep the process as smooth as possible both for themselves and for their children.

First, it can be helpful for parents to give their children as much of a heads-up as possible when they decide to break up. However, because divorce is an adult issue, it is best for them to avoid sharing too many details about the breakup with the children. This will only confuse the children or possibly hurt one or both of the parents.

Teen motor vehicle accidents may happen due to negligence

A high school student in Texas recently lost her life in a tragic car crash. Now, her surviving family members and friends are grieving over her loss. Sometimes these types of motor vehicle accidents happen as a result of a driver's carelessness, in which case the driver may be held financially accountable in civil court.

The accident took place early in the morning on a Sunday. Police said that a car carrying four teenagers was traveling along Interstate 20 after leaving a party. All of a sudden, the car left the roadway and struck a tree. The 16-year-old girl who was riding in the front passenger seat ended up passing away in the crash.

Proposal to cut distracted driving car crashes in Texas

There could be a new saying in the works: Texas, don't mess with your phone while driving.

A lawmaker southwest of Beaumont has proposed a new law to help slow the increase in distracted driving crashes in Texas. Sen. Judith Zaffirini of Laredo's proposal would allow you to use your phone while driving, but only if you don't use your hands to do it.

Rollover motor vehicle accidents may lead to death

Two teenage girls lost their lives in a recent rollover car crash in Texas. The collision occurred on Presidents Day, when the girls were not in school. Unfortunately, these types of motor vehicle accidents sometimes happen due to driver negligence, which is grounds for civil litigation.

The recent Texas crash took place at about 1:15 p.m. along State Highway 36. Police said that one of the girls, 16, was driving a pickup truck, while the other girl, also 16, was riding in it. All of a sudden, the truck left the roadway and overturned. It ended up landing on its driver's side.

The five most common birth injuries in newborns

Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in a person's life. However, things can take a serious turn when a birth injury occurs.

On average, 28,000 birth injuries occur in the United States each year. That is approximately 75 birth injuries per day, according to recent data. Sadly, many parents do not know their child has a birth injury until several years after the child is born.
