Recovering from a truck wreck

Victims of any type of traffic accident may face an array of hardships, such as debilitating injuries and the loss of their lives. However, those involved in crashes which involve a large truck face an especially high likelihood of serious injuries and death. There are many reasons why truck wrecks can be so devastating, from the impressive size of the vehicles to the greater amount of time it can take truckers to bring their truck to a complete stop. Our law firm recognizes the emotional, physical, and financial consequences of truck crashes for people in Houston, and other parts of Texas.

Flu season and preventing car crashes

Many people are well aware of the commonly discussed auto accident causes, from drowsy or distracted driving to operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or after having too many drinks. However, traffic accidents in Houston and other parts of Texas can be caused by many other potentially dangerous behaviors and conditions, many of which do not receive a great deal of attention in the media and online discussions. For example, those who come down with the flu may face an increased chance of finding themselves involved in a traffic accident.

What is drowsy driving?

From the use of illicit drugs and alcohol to distractions such as texting and trying to use a GPS, motor vehicle collisions happen for diverse reasons. However, some people do not recognize just how dangerous drowsiness can be for drivers in Houston and all other parts of Texas. Not only can fatigued driving cause a driver to fall asleep while behind the wheel, but it could also cause them to have difficulty avoiding an accident, following the speed limit or obeying other traffic safety laws.

How many truck crashes happen per year?

Traffic collisions of any kind can be devastating and may lead to either significant injuries or death. However, this is especially true when it comes to accidents involving a large truck. In Houston, and other cities throughout Texas, trucks can be particularly hazardous for a number of reasons. For example, a large truck driver could struggle to bring their vehicle to a stop in time and the larger size of these trucks can make the impact of a collision even more disastrous. Whether you drive a large truck or are afraid that you may be struck by one in the future, reviewing statistics on the prevalence of these accidents could be useful.

Side effects and risks of using Invokana

People in Texas who take, or have taken, Invokana for Type 2 Diabetes need to be aware of the risks associated with its use. Also known as Canagliflozin, this drug is prescribed for patients with high blood sugar, and is meant to be taken in conjunction with healthy lifestyle changes such as exercise and a proper diet.
