Car accidents may result from over-correcting steering wheel

Two people recently lost their lives in a single-car crash in Texas. The accident occurred on a Monday morning along Interstate 40. These types of car accidents are often attributed to the careless or reckless actions on the road, in which case the driver believed responsible may be held accountable through the civil court system.

The accident occurred at about 8 a.m. A man was driving on the interstate when he reportedly started to swerve off the roadway. He then overcorrected, which caused him to lose control of the vehicle. 

4 reasons offshore drilling can be incredibly dangerous

Offshore drilling becomes more important as reserves of oil on shore shrink and get depleted. Oil is a finite resource, after all, so the industry has to shift and look for new and larger reserves to keep up with demand.

At the same time, offshore drilling is a very dangerous profession. The risk of serious injury and death is higher than it is in many on-shore jobs. Why isn't it safer, if it's so critically important? Below are four reasons:

Car accidents involving alleged drunk driving may lead to death

Two individuals recently lost their lives in a deadly Texas crash. According to police, the automobile accident occurred as a result of a drunk driver. When these types of car accidents occur, the surviving family members of the deceased victims have the right to seek to hold the reportedly at-fault driver accountable through the civil court system.

The car accident occurred at around 3:30 p.m. on a Saturday. Police reported that a man, 41, ended up losing control of his car while heading north along a road. He allegedly went over the median and entered the road's southbound lane, striking a family's car head-on.

Air Force May Face Liability In Sutherland Church Shooting

The aftermath of a mass shooting incident is terrible. The friends and loved ones of victims are left to grieve, survivors face a long recovery from their injuries, and first responders are left to process images of human carnage that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. 

Time seems to stand still for those who are connected to the tragedy, but the legal system continues to move forward in search of justice. 

Defective products include fire extinguishers, stake lights

The recent recalls of multiple products may impact consumers in Texas. These products include millions of fire extinguishers. Stake lights are also among the many defective products being recalled.

Regarding the fire extinguishers, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reported that 40 million extinguishers may not work in emergency situations due to becoming clogged, or because the nozzles may come off. So far, one death has reportedly taken place due to the Kidde extinguishers. Specifically, in 2014, extinguishers did not work for emergency personnel who were attempting to squelch a blaze following a car accident. The recall impacts more than 130 models from 1973 to 2017.

Brain injuries: No two injuries are the same

Working in the field, it's hard to imagine a day where there isn't a hazard around you. Normally, it's safe, but today was different. You attempted to drive machinery down the usual track, but the recent dry weather resulted in the earth crumbling beneath the weight of the machine. You hit your head, but nothing has been right ever since.

Traumatic brain injuries are a kind of catastrophic injury. They have the potential to affect you for the rest of your life. Even if they don't, the therapy, medical care and other needs must be addressed before you can ever get back your sense of normalcy.

Car accidents may involve disabled cars

A car accident in Texas recently led to a woman's tragic death. The car collision occurred on a Tuesday at about 9 a.m. These types of car accidents sometimes occur because a particular driver was careless. In this situation, the negligent driver may be held liable for any injuries and deaths resulting from the accident.

According to police, a woman, 44, was pushing a disabled car. All of a sudden, an SUV struck her. The accident took place on a boulevard right in front of a high school.

Toys R Us wiggle balls considered defective products

Consumers in Texas may be impacted by a recent Toys R Us toy recall. The store has decided to recall about 30,000 wiggle balls, which also go by the name of giggle balls. These defective products are being recalled because they may cause infants to choke.

The toys being recalled are called Bruin Infant Wiggle Balls. At this point, deaths in connection with the use of the dangerous toys have not been reported. However, the company has received six reports of rubber knobs that have broken off. These include four reports about product pieces being found in the mouths of children.

Transporting hazardous materials: A risk to workers

Working in the oil industry, there are always dangerous materials that need to be transported. As a loved one of someone killed while transporting these hazardous chemicals, you know the true dangers involved. Since your loved one was killed on the job, you have the right to a workers' compensation claim, which can help cover expenses and financial losses.

It's important that people learn from what your loved one went through. Transporting hazardous materials in the correct way is the only way to know they won't come into contact with people. If there is a collision and the hazardous waste or chemicals spill, the right safety protocols in place help people, like your loved one, avoid serious injuries.

Car accidents involving buildings may lead to deaths

Two individuals lost their lives following a motor vehicle accident involving a pizza parlor in Texas. The accident also took the lives of four dogs. These types of fatal car accidents sometimes occur due to the carelessness of certain drivers, in which case the driver may be held liable for the deaths resulting from them.

According to police, a motor vehicle driver was going north along Highway 155 and suddenly crashed into the parlor, which sells both pasta and pizza. The restaurant ended up catching fire due to the collision. The owners of the restaurant and their son reside above the eatery in an apartment but were able to flee the building safely.
