4 ways to avoid an accident with a large truck

Driving can be dangerous enough without having to worry about other drivers on the road. While you drive defensively and practice safety, others may not. This can be particularly dangerous when the other driver happens to drive a large commercial truck. When you are in a small vehicle and a large truck breaks a traffic law or does not drive safely, your life could be in danger.

Are older drivers more at risk of injury in a car accident?

A substantial segment of the nation's older drivers lives in Texas or spends time traveling through the state. While car accidents occur in all age groups that operate motor vehicles, the consequences can be worse for elder drivers.

What's the right moral compass to give self-driving vehicles?

The age of self-driving cars seems closer than ever. When you look at what Google, Tesla and other companies are doing to advance the arrival of the fully autonomous vehicle it becomes quite clear that the day is not that far away.

What might constitute negligence in a car accident?

If you've been the victim of a car accident you have probably been the victim of some form of negligence. Negligence is the legal theory that is applied to nearly every accident that happens in San Antonio or anywhere else for that matter.

Before launching an injury claim you must know case facts

There are times when the bare elements of a case make it abundantly clear that a viable personal injury or wrongful death claim exists. As an example, consider the horrible Amtrak derailment that happened in May up in the northeast part of the country.

Damage due to a crash isn't limited to the physical injury

Sometimes companies do the right thing and take responsibility when tragedies occur. At least, sometimes they try to. We saw it happen recently when the airline Germanwings announced it is offering 25,000 euros in compensation to relatives of passengers who died in March when a pilot decided to fly their plane into a mountainside. The amount is in addition to 50,000-euro payments issued as part of financial assistance required by German law.

Self-driving cars can crash. Who should be liable for injuries?

Depending on what side of the technology divide you are on the prospect of self-driving cars may be either a cool idea or the scariest thing you can imagine. If you're sitting on the fence you might be inclined to have mixed feelings.

Wet weather warrants greater care to avoid car accidents

We are entering what are traditionally the wettest months of the year around the San Antonio area. What that means is that there is a greater chance that slick road surfaces can develop, literally in a flash, and present drivers with situations for which they are not necessarily prepared.
