 Influence of Drugs and Car Accidents - The Stephens Law Firm Accident Lawyers Houston TX 77024 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 89

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 12.6 million people in 2018 drove under the influence of drugs. Although it is difficult to determine the role drugged driving plays in car crashes, estimates show that drivers in 44% of fatal car accidents tested positive for at least one drug. The effects of driving while under the influence of drugs may vary because different kinds of drugs can affect the brain differently. For instance, individuals under the influence of marijuana may experience a slower reaction time, impaired judgment of time and distance, and decreased coordination. Those who are under the influence of cocaine or methamphetamine can experience out-of-character aggressive behaviors or recklessness while driving. Any kind of wreck involving a driver on drugs can result in catastrophic injuries for the other driver. In order to get the most compensation for your claim, you will need a top-rated car accident attorney like The Stephens Law Firm.

 Distracted Driving and Car Accidents - The Stephens Law Firm Accident Lawyers Houston TX 77024 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 93

Distracted driving is the leading cause of car accidents in the United States, accounting for over 2,800 deaths in 2018 alone. Distracted driving refers to anything that may distract a driver from paying attention to the road, such as eating, texting, talking, or adjusting the radio or navigation system. Safe driving requires your full attention, and anything that takes attention away from the road can result in an accident. One of the most dangerous activities in recent years has become texting while driving, which can take a driver's eyes off the road for 5 seconds. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, that is comparable to driving the length of a football field with your eyes closed.

 The Dangers of Reckless Car Driving - The Stephens Law Firm Accident Lawyers Houston TX 77024 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 90

A large part of safely operating a vehicle is obeying traffic signs and signals. If motorists did not obey these signals, the roads would be congested and dangerous.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are over 1,500 fatalities a year involving two vehicles at an intersection controlled by a traffic signal. Failure to obey traffic signs and signals is considered aggressive driving and aggressive driving accounts for 66% of traffic fatalities each year. Not only do aggressive drivers put themselves in danger, but they put innocent drivers in danger as well.

 Bad Weather and Car Accidents - The Stephens Law Firm Accident Lawyers Houston TX 77024 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 90

According to the US Department of Transportation, there are over 5 million vehicle crashes per year, and 21% of these crashes are weather-related. The most dangerous weather for driving conditions is rain and wet pavement, which causes the majority of weather-related accidents. Heavy rain can impact visibility on the roadway, while slick pavement can cause hydroplaning and increase braking distances by a significant amount. In the United States, weather-related vehicle crashes kill more people annually than large-scale weather disasters like tornadoes or floods. Dangerous weather poses a significant risk to drivers on the road, and more than 5,000 deaths a year result from accidents in dangerous weather. Dangerous weather conditions impact many drivers every year.

 Tips to Preventing Car Collisions - The Stephens Law Firm Accident Lawyers Houston TX 77024 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 90

A car wreck can come out of nowhere, and it can cause major changes in your life. Even if you are a safe driver who does your best to follow the rules of the road, you may be involved in an accident due to another driver's negligence. Car accidents can come at a great personal cost, whether it be to your property or as a result of injury. In this case, it will be extremely important to find a top-rated auto collision attorney to help you with your lawsuit. One thing to consider after a wreck is whether you are being treated fairly by the insurance companies. While insurance companies are supposed to advocate for their clients' personal interests, they have their own motives that may not serve you. The insurance company of the party responsible will try to pay as little as possible, and your insurance company will want to keep its overhead as low as possible as well. The Stephens Law Firm is ready and willing to take on your case so you can get the most compensation for your claim. With a no-obligation consultation, you have nothing to lose by contacting us today to see if you have a case in court.

 Costs and Legal Fees from Car Accidents - The Stephens Law Firm Accident Lawyers Houston TX 77024 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 88

When you are involved in a car accident, the last thing on your mind is the money it will cost to pay for it. However, there can be great costs associated with a car accident, even if it is not your fault. A private insurance company (either yours or the other party's, depending on who is at fault) should pay for some of the damages, but it is unlikely that all of your personal injuries and property damages will be covered by insurance.

 Insurance Companies and Truck Accidents - The Stephens Law Firm Accident Lawyers Houston TX 77024 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 85

Are you being pressured by intimidating insurance companies to take a settlement that does not cover your injuries following a trucking accident? This happens frequently when insurance companies know their party is a fault and do not want to dish out a costly payout due to the negligence of the insured. Don’t allow insurance companies to cheat you out of the compensation you deserve. It is vital to know that insurance companies work to avoid giving out big settlements for their clients' mistakes and will try everything they can to minimize costs for their company. If an insurance company reaches out to you quickly after an accident offering a settlement, chances are they know they are at fault and would rather offer a payment that is much lower than what you can receive. That is when a skilled 18 wheeler accident lawyer is necessary to help you get the right compensation for your claim. Contact our truck accident law firm immediately to find out what your claim may be worth.   Our legal team is equipped to carry out an impartial examination of the accident scene and determine the person at fault, whether it is the truck driver, the truck’s manufacturer, or the commercial vehicle’s company.

 Trucking Companies and Negligence - The Stephens Law Firm Accident Lawyers Houston TX 77024 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 100

The commercial trucking industry is a very lucrative business. As with every business, a company's main focus is to receive the most profit and limit expenses. Sometimes, corners are cut to limit spending and can lead to serious repercussions. Ways that a trucking company may limit spending is to forgo maintenance on a few trucks. If trucks are not maintained, they run the risk of causing accidents while a truck driver is on the road and leaving you in danger. If you have been involved in a semi-truck wreck, you deserve to know if it was due to the negligence of the trucking company to maintain the vehicle. Trucks need oil changes, new tires, wheel alignments, maintained brakes, and lights. If any of these are not properly maintained the trucking company may be liable for damages resulting in a wreck. At the time of an accident, you may not know if it was due to the negligence of the driver or their company. That is why an investigation needs to be conducted immediately. Commercial truck accidents can cause a lot of loss and damages, both emotionally and in monetary terms. These commercial truck companies are heavily backed by insurance and defense lawyers. We advise you to hire a skilled attorney from our 18-wheeler accident law firm as soon as possible. Our attorney will fight for the financial compensation that you deserve by carrying out an extensive investigation on your behalf. Call us today to get a no-obligation consultation.

 Risk of Driving Without Resting - The Stephens Law Firm Accident Lawyers Houston TX 77024 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 87

The job of a commercial vehicle driver is filled with long hours driving by themselves with minimal breaks to ensure their cargo gets to its destination on time. Operators can be driving for up to 11 hours a day which leads to fatigue. If you have been on a long-distance car ride you know how easy it is to get tired behind the wheel. Some companies have strict deadlines that force drivers to work even longer hours than that and make fraudulent log books to comply with federal regulations. When drivers are put under that much stress and are stuck behind the wheel for too long it is easy to become fatigued and risk getting into a collision. Too many times people who have been injured in a truck wreck wait too long for an attorney which allows trucking companies to cover logbooks or destroy evidence that leads to a driver at fault. We do not want to see that happen to anyone and continue to have negligent drivers on the road. If you have been in a truck accident call our office immediately. We can get the evidence needed to make your case and get you the compensation you deserve. We have worked with hundreds of clients and verify that all evidence is preserved. We work on a contingent basis so we won't get paid unless you win. Contact us today to get legal advice on your truck wreck claim today.

 Abuse of Drugs and Truck Collisions - The Stephens Law Firm Accident Lawyers Houston TX 77024 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 95

There are over 3.5 million active truck drivers in the United States right now. If 2% of these drivers are actively abusing drugs, that means 700,000 drivers are at risk for causing a deadly semi-truck accident.18 wheeler drivers are required to pass an initial Department of Transportation (DOT) drug test to gain employment in the trucking industry. However, up to 30% of active truck drivers have used drugs or alcohol on the job at least once. With these statistics, there is cause to question whether or not a driver was under the influence of any substance during a collision. Frequently, truck drivers suffer from the effects the job has on their mental health. Long hours, days on the road away from family, and the constant deadlines can take a toll on a driver causing them to turn to alcohol or drugs. The consequences of these decisions can lead to severely injuring or killing themselves and others. If you have suffered an injury due to a semi-truck wreck you deserve to know the cause and prevent this from happening to anyone else. That’s why the attorneys at the Stephens Law Firm take such an aggressive approach to these types of cases. Our legal team works diligently to find out the truth and hopefully avoid future accidents like these in the future. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a big rig accident contact us today for a free consultation.

 Aggressive Driving and Truck Wrecks - The Stephens Law Firm Accident Lawyers Houston TX 77024 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 93

Every vehicle suffers from having its own blind spots. With tractor trailers, they have much larger blind spots making it difficult for them to see another car driving by. Semi trucks have four major blind spots: in front of the cab up to 20 feet, below and behind the driver’s window, the right side of the truck’s cab, extending backward diagonally, and directly behind the truck’s trailer, extending for about 30 feet. If a driver does not check their mirrors responsibly or is driving aggressively, it is the truck driver's fault for a collision. Trucking companies will try to use the defense that the other driver was in their blind spot, the driver didn’t yield or speed up to avoid the crash, or that it is the driver's responsibility to be mindful when driving next to big rigs. If you have followed the rules of the road and still find yourself in a wreck with a semi truck due to their negligence, don’t let their attorneys pin the accident on you. Hire a trucking accident attorney immediately to protect your rights to compensation. If you have suffered from a terrible truck accident then contact our law firm today. The Stephens Law Firm should be your first choice when choosing a reliable and successful law firm. We will fight aggressively to make sure no trucking company will win in the case of negligence. Call now for a no-obligation consultation to see what our firm can do for you.
