Dallas — Boxer Errol Spence Jr. Seriously Injured in Rollover Accident on South Riverfront Boulevard

Posted on Thursday, October 10th, 2019 at 8:05 pm by Williams Hart   

Just before 3 a.m. on Thursday, October 10, 2019, boxer Errol Spence Jr. was seriously injured in a rollover accident that occurred in Dallas, Texas.

According to initial reports, Spence, 29, was driving a Ferrari at a high rate of speed on South Riverfront Boulevard, which eventually caused him to lose control of the vehicle. As a result, the Ferrari appeared to jump the median into the lane traveling the opposite direction, and it flipped over multiple times.

Spence wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, and he was ejected from the car. He was then airlifted to a hospital in serious condition. He is expected to recover from his injuries.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to Errol Spence Jr. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Car accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident. This can be translated to be about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

A particular kind of vehicular accident that is considered to be one of the deadliest is a rollover. A 2010 statistics showed that rollovers comprised only 2.1% of nearly 9.1 million vehicular accidents, but they did account for well over 35% of all deaths. According to numerous studies, about 69% of the people who died from rollovers were not wearing any seatbelts at the time of the accident.

Vehicular accidents, especially those involving rollovers, are quite difficult for the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/rollover accidents, so if you are a victim of this kind of accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help from these lawyers.

Dallas — Driver Dead After Fiery Rear-End Collision on Interstate 20

Posted on Wednesday, September 25th, 2019 at 9:07 pm by Williams Hart   

One person was killed in a fiery rear-end collision that occurred in Dallas, Texas on Monday, September 23, 2019.

According to initial reports, a blue sedan was traveling along Interstate 20, near Texas State Highway Spur 408, when all of a sudden, it rear-ended a camper trailer and a truck that were on the shoulder of the interstate. The driver of the sedan was then pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of the unidentified driver. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Car accidents are a problem in this day and age, and yet, they still continue to happen on a regular basis. In statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident. This can be translated to be about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

A particular kind of vehicular accident that is fairly common in the United States is a rear-end collision. It has been reported that there are about 1.7 million rear-end collisions in the U.S. every year, and from that number, roughly 1,700 people die while another 500,000 are injured. The National Transportation Safety Bureau (NTSB) also notes that 87% of rear-end collisions happened simply because the driver was not paying attention to the road.

Car accidents, especially rear-end collisions, are quite difficult for the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/rear-end collisions, so if you are a victim of this kind of accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help from these lawyers.

Dallas — Truck Driver Dies After Slab of Stone Falls on Him at Infinity Stone

Posted on Wednesday, September 25th, 2019 at 8:52 pm by Williams Hart   

Shortly before 1:45 p.m. on Wednesday, September 25, 2019, a truck driver was killed in a tragic accident that occurred in Dallas, Texas.

According to initial reports, the truck driver was at Infinity Stone, located in the 9100 block of Sovereign Row, when for some reason, a slab of stone fell on the truck driver. Dallas Fire-Rescue’s Urban Search and Rescue team were called out to remove the stone so an investigation can be conducted and the Medical Examiner can take custody of the victim.

The accident still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of the unidentified truck driver. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate of wrongful death. Essentially, wrongful death is a claim against a person who can be held liable for a death. Any fatality caused by wrongful acts of another may result in a wrongful death claim. Many wrongful death claims are based upon death as a result of negligence, such as a motor vehicle accident caused by another driver or medical malpractice.

In the United States, wrongful death is a cause of action or a type of claim, that can be brought when one person or entity wrongfully causes someone’s death. This allows a lawsuit to be filed even when the person who was harmed is no longer alive to bring the case. Each state has its own wrongful death statute. In some states, the family of the decedent must bring two different types of claims: a wrongful death claim to recover the full value of the life of the deceased, and a survival claim on the behalf of the decedent’s estate to recover for funeral expenses, pain and suffering, or punitive damages.

Wrongful deaths are quite difficult for the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents, so if you are a victim of this kind of accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help from these lawyers. They will help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.

Dallas — Man Hospitalized After 18-Wheeler Collision on Interstate 35 East

Posted on Monday, September 9th, 2019 at 9:18 pm by Williams Hart   

Just before 12:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 7, 2019, a 33-year-old man was hospitalized after an 18-wheeler accident occurred in Dallas, Texas.

According to initial reports, the 18-wheeler was traveling along the northbound lanes of Interstate 35 East, near the Dallas North Tollway exit, when all of a sudden, it struck a concrete wall. After that initial collision, the big rig veered into the southbound lanes and crashed into a truck. At least two other vehicles were involved in the aftermath of the crash.

A 33-year-old man was transported to a hospital where he is reported to be in stable condition.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the unidentified man. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Vehicular accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident. This can be translated to be about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

Additionally, an accident involving a tractor-trailer is a kind of vehicular accident, and it is a deadly one just because of the fact that a tractor-trailer is one of the largest and most dangerous vehicles in the world. It is estimated that there are more than 2 million tractor-trailers roaming in the United States, and each year, they get involved in about 500,000 accidents. And since the size of a tractor-trailer is enormous, the results of this kind of accident are catastrophic, from a severe injury to death.

Vehicular accidents, especially those involving trucks, are quite difficult for the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in truck accidents, so if you are a victim of this kind of accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help from these lawyers.

Plano — Driver of Disabled Vehicle Fatally Struck on President George Bush Turnpike

Posted on Monday, July 22nd, 2019 at 8:31 pm by Williams Hart   

Just before 9:15 p.m. on Sunday, July 21, 2019, a driver was killed in an auto-pedestrian accident that occurred in Plano Texas.

According to initial reports, the driver was outside, tending to a disabled Nissan in the eastbound lanes of the President George Bush Turnpike when another vehicle crashed into the driver. As a result, the driver of the Nissan was brought to Medical City Plano Hospital and was later pronounced dead.

Meanwhile, the other driver was not seriously injured in this accident.

Investigation is still ongoing for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of the unidentified driver. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Car accidents are a problem in this day and age, and yet, they still continue to happen on a regular basis. In a statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident. This can be translated to be about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

Car accidents are reported to be deadly for pedestrians particularly. The Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) estimates that the number of pedestrian deaths in the U.S. is 6,000 in 2017. This is a 27% increase from 2007 to 2016, and it is said that the number in 2017 is a 25-year high.

Additionally, there are five states that had the most number of pedestrian fatalities in 2017, and these are California, Florida, New York, Arizona, and Texas. These states accounted for about 43% of pedestrian fatalities during the first half of 2017 despite the fact that they are home to only 30% of the U.S. population. The GHSA also claims that children and the elderly are the most vulnerable to this kind of accident.

Car accidents, especially the auto-pedestrian ones, are quite difficult to the victims and their respective families.

Dallas — Driver Killed in Wrong-Way Collision on Garland Road

Posted on Monday, July 22nd, 2019 at 8:19 pm by Williams Hart   

At approximately 10:35 p.m. on Saturday, July 20, 2019, a driver was killed in a wrong-way collision that occurred in Dallas, Texas.

According to initial reports, a man was traveling southbound on Garland Road when in the 8500 block, he unsafely turned and drove over the center median and into the northbound lanes of traffic. As a result, he collided head-on with another vehicle, occupied by a 34-year-old man and a woman, that was traveling northbound in the right lane.

The wrong way driver was brought to Baylor Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. Meanwhile, the occupants of the other vehicle were also transported to Baylor Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigation is still ongoing for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of the unidentified man. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Car accidents like this are awfully common nowadays.

This can be translated to be about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

A specific kind of car accident that is incredibly deadly is a head-on collision. The reason why a head-on collision is said to be incredibly deadly is because of the increased force that is sustained by both vehicles. Reports estimate that head-on collisions only comprise 2% of reported crashes, but they account for over 10% of driving fatalities. Some of the common outcomes of a head-on collision are spinal injuries, brain injuries, catastrophic injuries, broken bones, paralysis, and of course death.

At approximately 9:15 a.m. on Monday, July 8, 2019, two people were killed and two others were hospitalized in a two-vehicle accident that occurred in Dallas, Texas.

According to initial reports, a flatbed truck was traveling southbound on Irving Boulevard when in the 4600 block, it struck a guardrail and crossed a concrete median into oncoming traffic.

The 31-year-old driver of the flatbed was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger in the Chevrolet S10 was also trapped in the vehicle and pronounced dead. Meanwhile, the driver of the Chevy and the driver of the semi-tractor were rushed to Parkland Hospital for their injuries.

Dallas — Man in Critical Condition in Drunken Multi-Vehicle Accident on Interstate 35

Posted on Sunday, June 30th, 2019 at 9:47 pm by Williams Hart   

At around 2:40 a.m. on Friday, June 28, 2019, one person was in critical condition in a drunken multi-vehicle accident that occurred in Dallas, Texas.

According to initial reports, a Camaro was traveling along Interstate 35, near Royal Lane, at a high rate of speed when all of a sudden, it crashed into the back of an 18-wheeler. The vehicle then became disabled and was struck by a Honda CRV, causing it to go into the left shoulder of the freeway. And then finally, the Camaro was struck by a third vehicle, a grey Chrysler 300, which fled the location.

The passenger of the Camaro, 42-year-old Victor Parra, sustained injuries and was brought to a hospital in critical condition.

Meanwhile, the driver, 23-year-old Oscar Manuel Arenas, is currently a remote book-in from a local hospital and will later be transported to the Dallas County Jail, where he will be facing an Intoxication Assault charge.

Investigation is still ongoing for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to Victor Parra. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Car accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In a statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident. This can be translated to be about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

There are three common causes of car accidents, and these are speeding, driving while distracted, and DUI (driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol). DUI, in particular, is quite appalling. The NHTSA reports that about 28 people die every day because of drunken driving crashes, and in 2010, 10,228 people died in DUI accidents while about 345,000 were injured. All these numbers paint a terrible picture indeed.

Car accidents, especially the DUI ones, are quite difficult to the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/DUI accidents, so if you are a victim of this kind of accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help from these lawyers. They will help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.
