In a recent article in the Austin American Statesmen, “We want to remind people that driving while intoxicated on Texas roads will not be tolerated.”—-Lakeway Police Chief Todd Radford" Drinking and driving is a problem that Texas face. Each year many people die on Texas roads because of DWI accidents. By stepping up enforcement of DWI charges the Texas Police are trying to curb those numbers especially on holiday weekends like the upcoming on on labor day.
"This increased enforcement is part of a national effort by the National Transportation Highway Administration and the Texas Department of Transportation’s “Drink. Drive. Go to Jail” campaign that runs through Labor Day, Sept. 1. Many police departments around the state also are conducting no-refusal programs as part of their Labor Day crackdown. These programs require suspected drunk drivers to submit to a blood test to measure their alcohol levels."

Traffic lights are used to provide some sense of organization and safety regulations to everyday traffic. However, when individuals disregard these signals or think they can beat the light, they may find themselves involved in a serious accident. Running a red light can result in a traffic ticket, a fatal car accident could also potentially result.
A similar situation recently took place in Texas that resulted in the deaths of two individuals. It was reported that a pickup truck ran a red light and as a result, collided with another pickup truck. The accident took place at approximately 9 a.m. and resulted in multiple injuries to parties in both trucks.
Though there have been no allegations yet, the investigation into the fatal car accident could lead to authorities considering appropriate charges. Until that time, the families of the victims and the injured parties may wish to consider their own legal options.

GALVESTON CAR ACCIDENT
Allegedly, the driver of the car was traveling south and failed to maintain the vehicle in the proper lane. As a result, the car moved into the northbound lane and crashed head on with a tractor trailer. Another 18-wheeler attempted to avoid the initial collision, and as a result, that truck traveled into the ditch and turned over.
The car had three occupants: the driver, a 4-year-old boy, and a 6-year-old girl. The boy had to be transported from the scene by helicopter due to critical injuries, and the little girl did not suffer any injuries. The driver of the tractor trailer involved in the initial crash was also uninjured. However, the driver of the second truck was airlifted from the scene.
When a roadway does not have a physical median to separate traffic traveling in different directions, a head-on collision could easily occur. If a driver drifts into the other lane, a split second is enough time for an accident to take place. When a crash involves an 18 wheeler, typically significant damage and injuries results from Truck Accidents.
These types of situation occur frequently on Texas roads. As this situation shows, a truck accident can happen in the blink of an eye. Because the incident resulted in serious injuries, the driver deemed responsible could potentially face legal repercussions. The injured truck driver may have cause to file a Personal Injury claim that, if successful, could result in his being awarded compensation for medical bills and other damages resulting from the accident that Texas law deem appropriate. If you have been seriously injured in a Galveston Truck Accident please feel free to contact our Galveston 18 Wheeler Accident Lawyer at 713-829-4317.

Driving under the influence is a common cause for car accidents across the country and in many cases can lead to a wrongful death case. Because alcohol impacts the react ability and time of individuals causing them to not be able to act as quickly or efficiently due to impairment, a fatal car accident may occur that could have otherwise been avoided. If such an accident does take place, the driver deemed responsible could face criminal charges and civil claims.
A driver in Texas may be in a similar situation after she was charged in relation to a fatal accident. The situation reportedly happened when a pickup truck with a male driver was stopped at a red light. While the truck was stopped, a vehicle with a female driver approached from behind, failed to stop and hit the truck in the rear. As a result, both vehicles caught fire.
The male driver suffered fatal injuries in the accident and was declared dead on site. The female driver was also injured, and authorities believe that she was under the influence when the accident took place. After being treated at the hospital, she was taken into custody for intoxication manslaughter. Other vehicles were apparently involved in the crash as well, and more individuals were also injured.
Because the female driver was charged in the fatal car accident, she will likely have to face criminal proceedings for that serious allegation. If she is found guilty and responsible for the crash, the family of the deceased victim may have substantial cause to file a wrongful death claim against the responsible party. Such a claim could allow them to seek compensation for damages allowable under Texas law. If you have any legal questions feel free to contact our Wrongful Death Claim Lawyer at 713-829-4317.
