Houstonians understand the risks presented by rollover accidents. A recent local accident involving a propane truck rollover that closed down a Loop 610 ramp drove home the dangers of such accidents. Consumer Reports deems such accidents among the deadliest on the road. Even though rollovers comprise only about three percent of all serious vehicle accidents, they are responsible for roughly 30 percent of all passenger vehicle accident fatalities.

Rear guards on tractor trailers have proven effective in preventing accidents with smaller motor vehicles. However, these devices still have issues associated with them. Regardless of the number of safety features on a vehicle, car and truck accidents still occur. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident that was caused by a truck driver or trucking company’s negligence, attorney Stewart J. Guss may be able to help.

Trucks are a critical part of the economy of the United States. They carry goods to final destinations—including a myriad of retail outlets—providing the food, clothing, and household products that people buy every day. Without trucks, the economy would grind to a halt. Vital as they are, however, drivers of passenger vehicles need to be aware of the risks of sharing the roads with trucks.

When pedestrians and automobiles collide, pedestrians always lose. Unfortunately, pedestrians involved in automobile accidents are at high risk for traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs. Simply put, pedestrians in these accidents are utterly unprotected from powerful forces that the human body was not designed to withstand. Academic studies indicate that head injuries are among the most common for pedestrians involved in traffic accidents.

Labor Day is one of the biggest and most popular travel weekends of the summer in the Houston area. Over the holiday weekend, many Houstonians head to the beach, to barbecues, and to other outdoor activities. Along with the increased numbers of travelers on the roads, however, comes the risk of collisions with drunk drivers.

Motorcycle accidents are extremely dangerous and are often catastrophic. In 2015, 40 percent of those riders in fatal accidents were not wearing a helmet, and most motorcycle accidents are a result of the other driver not seeing the motorcycle. If you ride, ride safely.  If you are ever injured in a motorcycle accident, follow the protocol outlined below.

People like to multi-task and of course nowadays seemingly everyone is attached to their smartphone. But this also means more distracted drivers than ever--and that can be especially dangerous for commercial truck drivers. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), in 2015 alone, 4,050 large trucks were involved in fatal crashes and 87,000 more were involved in injury crashes. Indeed, distracted and inattentive driving was the second highest driving-related factor in those crashes. How does this happen?

With Houston growing in population each year, the number of trucks on roads and highways will likely increase along with possible crashes due to speeding. The need for on-time deliveries by 18-wheelers and smaller delivery trucks has officials around the region concerned about traffic violations and the safety of Houston’s residents.

Although the industry often cites statistics to suggest that commercial truck drivers are much less likely to be involved in a crash than other drivers, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s records indicate that there are more than 330,000 commercial truck accidents every year in the U.S. – and that those accidents account for about 10% of all traffic-related fatalities.  Knowing what you should do if you’re involved in a crash with a commercial vehicle may greatly affect whether – and how much – you will be compensated.
