Talking To Your Teen About Texting And Driving (https://goo.gl/2NnvAv)

It can be scary to think about your children being out on the road. While you can't control what other drivers do, you can help your kids learn best practices for road safety.

One of the important conversations to have is about texting and driving.

Teens are already at the highest risk of accidents. Not only are they new and inexperienced drivers, but they tend to get distracted more easily and have a slower reaction time.

If you add in the factor of texting and driving, it's a scary combination.

If you're the parent of a teen who is driving, or will be driving soon, you should have an honest conversation with them about the implications of texting and driving. Rather than chastising them, make it an honest and open dialogue.

It's also important to set the right example by following this rule yourself. If you need to answer a text or take a call, pull into a parking lot to do so.

Once you've discussed the implications of texting and driving with your teen, you should also prepare them to know what to do in case they do get into an accident.

Farrah Martinez's 10 Steps To A Car Accident Guide is a great learning tool, and something you can print out to put in the glove compartment for easy access.

30 Hospitalized After Crash Involving 2 School Buses (https://goo.gl/xYYW46)

25 students and 5 adults were hospitalized after two school buses were involved in a crash.

According to the Navasota Independent School District, the injuries appeared to be minor.

The accident happened inbound on the highway at Fairbanks N. Houston Road.

94 people, students and staff, were on 3 buses that were on the way to Houston for a class field trip to the museum. Two of the buses were involved in the accident.

Fifth-grade students from John C. Webb Elementary were on the buses when a CenterPoint Energy work truck rear-ended one of them. The accident caused the bus that was read-ended to collide with the other bus in front of it.

At least 30 people were transported to the hospital, and a spare bus arrived to take the rest of the students and staff back to Navasota.

Did you know that there are different laws regarding accidents involving commercial vehicles? If you have been in an accident with a commercial vehicle, you need to speak with a car accident attorney as quickly as possible.

What Does It Cost To Work With Farrah Martinez? (https://goo.gl/cwniSo)

When you choose to work with Farrah Martinez Law Firm, there is no upfront cost to you, because we don't get paid unless you win.

At Farrah Martinez Law Firm, we work on what is called a contingency fee agreement.

What is a contingency fee agreement?

When an attorney works on a contingency fee agreement, the attorney agrees to represent the client and have his or her fee deferred until the end of the case. The attorney fee is based on a percentage of the amount that is rewarded to you, and the attorney only collects a fee if the case results in a favorable outcome.

A favorable outcome usually means receiving compensation from the at-fault party, typically through the insurance company.

With no upfront cost, there is nothing to lose. Take advantage of our free case consultation to learn more about what we can do for you and your case.

Distracted Driving Is On The Rise (https://goo.gl/TXiiZs)

AAA recently published a survey that revealed 9 out of 10 drivers believe that distracted driving is on the rise.

The 2017 Traffic Safety Index polled people and found that 45% of drivers admitted to texting while driving. Another 35% admitted to reading or sending an e-mail on the go.

88% of respondents said that distracted driving was what worried them most while on the road. Other fears included traffic congestion, aggressive driving, and drunk driving.

According to other AAA research, distracted driving could be the cause of up to 58% of all accidents.

Using your phone while driving is illegal, but that doesn't stop people from using them constantly.

If you are involved in a car accident, and the other driver was distracted, they are at-fault for the accident and you can recover.

Farrah Martinez Law Firm offers free consultations, so call today to talk to her about your case.

Injured By A Drunk Driver? You Deserve Compensation! (https://goo.gl/AgpWai)

One drunk driver can change your life forever, but you have rights.

You won't receive any compensation for your pain, injuries, property damage, and expenses unless you file a claim.

If you have been injured by a drunk driver, you deserve compensation for:

Bodily Injury
Your body and life may never be the same. A drunk driving accident can cause lifelong pain, job loss, marital stress, and more. You need financial resources to help with these issues.

Property Damage
You shouldn't have to pay for the repair or replacement of your car, your home, or your property. The drunk driver should!

Lost Wages
Accident victims often lose weeks or even years of work because of their injuries. You didn't bring this upon yourself, and you shouldn't be left to deal with the major financial losses you can incur as a result.

Medical Bills
Medical bills add up quickly, especially if you require specialized care from a variety of health providers. The accident was not your fault, and paying those bills shouldn't be your responsibility.

Counseling
If you require counseling to deal with the shock, physical, and emotional pain left behind by an irresponsible drunk driver, you should get that care without worrying about paying the bills.

If you've been the victim of a drunk driving accident in Houston, TX there's only one number to call (713) 853-9296. Ask for Farrah. You'll be glad you did!

Bartender Charged In Connection With Drunk Driving Accident (https://goo.gl/GFBziy)

Bartender Amy Allen appeared in court last week after she was charged with acting with criminal negligence by allowing an underage customer and her 17-year-old passenger to drink alcohol at Crescent City sports bar in February.

The underage patron, Veronica Rivas, is accused of driving drunk and causing a crash. That crash killed 36-year-old Shayla Joseph and her 3-month-old baby Braylan Jabari Joseph.

Two others have also been charged for their roles in the deadly crash for purchasing alcohol for the underage drinkers.

All is also accused of not checking their IDs, which comes with a penalty of up to one year in jail.

Rivas is charged with two counts of intoxicated manslaughter.

In Texas, charges can befall more than just the driver who receives the DUI. The same can also be true for recovering damages.

If there are other parties at fault, you can file a claim and recover.

Suspect Crashes Into Patrol Station (https://goo.gl/uM3dKg)

A police chase in the 3200 block of Dairy Ashford near Richmond Avenue came to an end when the suspect crashed through the front of an HPD patrol station.

Police say that the driver of the car is likely responsible for setting fire to his parents' house.

According to reports, officers responded to a house fire and caught the suspect attempting to flee the scene. The suspect led them on a short chase before crashing through the west Houston HPD patrol station.

The chase came to a close just before 9:00 p.m., which meant there was less foot traffic in the patrol station at the time.

Houston Police Asst. Chief Car said, "Unfortunately for us, it ended up in the front lobby of the west side station. The fortunate part was no one was injured. You have to imagine, foot traffic is here. Luckily, at that time period, there was no foot traffic."

The suspect is facing numerous charges.
