Car accidents may occur due to failure to stop at stop sign

One teenager recently lost her life in a motor vehicle crash in Texas. Now, her surviving loved ones are left to question how such a fatal accident could have taken place. Two other people suffered injuries in the collision as well. These types of car accidents may occur due to the carelessness of another driver, in which case, the other driver may be held liable for the injuries or deaths resulting from the crash.

The recent Texas car accident took place at about 6:50 p.m. on a Saturday. According to authorities, a girl, 16, was driving along the U.S. 60 service road. A woman, 55, was driving south along FM-2373 at around the same time.

Fatal car accidents may stem from drunk driving

The lives of a woman and her infant were tragically cut short in a Texas motor vehicle collision. A driver who may have been intoxicated at the time reportedly caused the crash. When these types of car accidents happen, the surviving loved ones of the deceased have the right to seek justice.

The accident occurred on a recent Wednesday. At about 4 a.m., a sport utility vehicle reportedly rear-ended a car with the woman and baby inside. The woman, age 36, and the baby, 3 months old, both passed away in the collision. The husband of the woman said his wife was probably headed to get breakfast for the couple when the crash took place, as he works the night shift. The woman was on maternity leave at the time of the accident.

You should seek medical treatment after a car accident

Car accidents are almost always more destructive and violent than victims may realize in the moment. They may discover that they have injuries they do not notice until they feel pain hours or even days later. Unfortunately, even though an injury may not cause pain, it may still cause serious harm. Some initially undetectable internal injuries can result in long-term complications or even fatalities.

If you or someone you love experiences a car accident, it is always important to seek medical treatment as soon as you can. Even if you do not feel any indications of an injury, you may be in more danger than you realize. A medical professional can examine you for injuries you may not feel yet and may help you avoid serious harm and or needless suffering.

Motorcycles and bicycles are among defective products

The owners of vehicles in Texas may be affected by a couple of recent product recalls. One of these recalls of defective products involves Harley-Davidson motorcycles. The other recall has to do with folding bikes.

Regarding the Harley-Davidson motorcycles, about 175,000 motorcycles are being recalled since their brakes may fail. The recall in the United States covers over 30 models from 2008 to 2011. According to Harley-Davidson, deposits may form on the brakes if motorcycle owners do not change the brake fluid every couple of years. This may cause a particular valve in the brake system to stick. Authorities have received at least 43 complaints regarding the brakes.

Loss of control over car may result in fatal car accidents

Two men tragically lost their lives in a bizarre Texas car crash involving an ATM. The motor vehicle accident took place on a recent Sunday. Sometimes, these types of fatal car accidents occur as a result of the carelessness of another driver, which is grounds for civil litigation.

Regarding the recent crash, police said a 25-year-old man was driving his pickup truck north along a street. However, he ended up losing control of his truck. His truck collided with the car of a man, 43, who was performing an ATM transaction nearby.

Rig explosions highlight oil field dangers

A rig explosion can result in disaster for any worker who is near the site of a blast, making oil field safety a priority. Nevertheless, it seems that some oil companies and drilling contractors are not taking appropriate measures to keep their workers safe.

One drilling contractor in particular, which operates drilling sites in New Mexico, North Dakota, Colorado, Texas and Pennsylvania, has committed some serious safety errors over the last decade resulting in the deaths of ten workers.

Car accidents involving pedestrians may prove fatal

A pedestrian passed away in a tragic motor vehicle accident in Texas. The accident occurred on a Monday night. Now, the individual's surviving loved ones are left to grieve and wonder how such tragic car accidents can happen.

The pedestrian collision occurred along Interstate 35E at around 11:30 p.m. Police said that witnesses reported to them that a car had been headed north along the highway. However, it suddenly veered off of the interstate.

Claire's dangerous, defective products pulled from shelves

Consumers with children in the tween age group in Texas may be affected by a recent product recall involving Claire's jewelry. The accessory company recently decided to pull products from its store locations after these products were found to have asbestos in them. Dangerous or defective products such as these can unfortunately lead to major health issues.

Truckers' electronic logging devices: Will they improve safety?

New federal regulations require truckers to use electronic logging systems in their vehicles to make sure that their location, speed and driving data are known at all times. Earlier this month, truckers protested the safety regulations, saying that the monitoring devices would inhibit their freedom as truckers and make their jobs more difficult.

The question is: Should the truckers concerns be honored, or will these electronic logging devices make truckers drive more safely and ultimately save lives?

Children's potties and ceiling fans are defective products

A few recent product recalls may impact some Texas consumers. These recalls of defective products include a child's toilet step stool, of which 2,400 have been recalled. Another recall involves 3,400 ceiling fans.

Regarding the step stool, Squatty Potty has decided to recall its stools because the devices' top steps, which are removable and are hat shaped, may detach when children are standing on them. Thus, they can cause children to fall. So far, Squatty Potty has received a couple of reports regarding falling. In one case, the child struck her chin and bit her mouth, which caused bleeding. In the other case, the child took a tumble, which caused his head to strike a wall.
