Car Crashes Archives


When the sun sets in Texas, you may still be out running errands, traveling home from work or going out with friends. You face a greater risk of being killed or injured in a catastrophic car accident while driving at night. According to the National Safety Council, people are three times more likely to lose their lives in a car accident at night than they are during the day. It is crucial that you understand why these accidents are more likely to occur so that you can possibly avoid being involved in one. 

What happens when a car crash results in severe burns

At the Kyle Law Firm in Texas, we represent many clients who have suffered a traumatic injury as the result of a car crash. We therefore know that one of the most horrible injuries you can sustain in a car crash is that of severe burns. Unfortunately, your car’s enclosed interior plus the number of things inside it that can catch fire or get hot enough to burn you make for the perfect storm to put you at risk for receiving severe or even fatal burns if your accident proves to be a fiery one.

The scary facts about aggressive driving

Many motorists in Texas and across the United States have gotten upset with other drivers while trying to navigate busy roadways. In fact, a study released by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety reported that approximately 80 percent of motorists have felt angry or enraged while driving at least one time within the last year. This road rage has contributed to a number of catastrophic car accidents, injuries and deaths. What is the cause of such rage while behind the wheel? According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, delays in traffic and people running late to work, a meeting or an appointment are some of the most common reasons why people get frustrated while driving. Others have a total disregard for the law and may feel a sense of anonymity when traveling in their vehicles.

Make sure you don’t start a road trip tired

You might be staying in your hometown during the holidays, or you could have plans to visit distant loved ones. No matter what your holiday travel plans are this season, our team at the Kyle Law Firm wants you and other Texas residents to stay safe. For most people, this includes getting enough rest before getting behind the wheel.

Texas ranks high for safe drivers, but more needs to be done

Allstate has just released its 14th annual America's Best Drivers Report, which ranks the 200 largest U.S. cities on the frequency of car crashes. The rankings, which are based on Allstate claims data, also calculate how the likelihood of each city's residents to be in car crashes compared the average U.S. driver. American drivers, on average, are in a car crash every ten years or so.

What constitutes distracted driving in Texas?

You're likely quite familiar with the term "distracted driving" and may even have been a distracted driver yourself at some point in your driving career. In fact, most drivers become distracted from time to time, perhaps without even realizing it. The problem is that operating a motor vehicle in a distracted state can lead to collision, which can cause injuries, which can change lives, forever.  

The cognitive dangers of hands-free calling while driving

We all know that driving while distracted is dangerous. When we think about distracted driving behavior, we usually think about activities that take our eyes off the road or our hands off the wheel. Therefore, two of the most commonly discussed distracted driving behaviors are texting and hand-held phone calls while driving.

Study profiles 4 types of drivers most likely to talk or text

An international study of distracted driving has identified four types of drivers who resist messages to avoid talking or texting behind the wheel. Interestingly, women were substantially more likely than men to engage in distracted driving, so women are the first of the four profiles. The others include people who are frequent users of their phones, drivers who are highly disinhibited, and those with negative attitudes about safety.

When airbags fail

Although safety technology in motor vehicles is relatively new, it may not take long before you take it for granted. You fasten your seatbelt instinctively and never give a thought to your anti-lock brakes. You may not even consider turn signals, headlights and door locks to be safety features. They are just part of the car.

A major collision may lead to potentially life-altering injuries

When you embark on your day's journey in your commuter car, you mull over your day's activities and responsibilities. Perhaps you even think ahead about what you will do for lunch. However, all of a sudden, a reportedly careless motorist strikes your car. Suddenly, your day's agenda looks very different.
