Texas police officers can pull people over and give them tickets for texting and driving. Those caught will face fines of up to $99 for a first offense and $200 for a second offense. The new law also states that if an accident caused by texting and driving results in the death or serious bodily injury of another person, they can be charged with a Class A misdemeanor punishable by a fine not to exceed $4,000 and confinement in jail for a term not to exceed one year, in addition to any other charges/punishments.

Advocates against handheld phone use say the new law will save the lives of both would-be distracted drivers, and the people they might have struck in accidents.

“The new law will help reduce crashes, save lives, and make Texas roads safer for everyone,” Kent Livesay, vice president and general manager of AAA Texas, said in a statement. “This new law will make travel safer for every Texan.”

Or, as a frequent rider, you may have shared a horror story of untimeliness, getting lost or even reckless driving.

Company spokespersons say all drivers must undergo background checks and drivers who demonstrate patterns of unsafe behavior will no longer be able to drive for Uber or Lyft.

It is also known as E & O (errors and omissions) insurance. This coverage helps to minimize the costs associated with claims made against your organization or you personally regarding the service, advice, consultation or other expert information you’ve provided. From IT workers to business consultants, it pays to have this coverage in place.

518198839-300x200Motorcycle accident-related deaths and injuries are on the rise in California. The California Office of Traffic Safety reports that there were 519 motorcycle accident fatalities in 2014. This is a 12.1% increase from 2013, when the state reported 463 motorcycle accident fatalities. Improving economic conditions, increases in tourism, reports of driving under the influence of alcohol, and attractive California land and seascapes have all been blamed for the rise in traffic accidents in the state. While more traffic bodes well for California’s economy, it also poses a threat to the safety of motorcyclists who are relatively unprotected on their bikes. Those who are injured in California motorcycle accidents may be entitled to monetary compensation for any damages they suffer as a result of a motorcycle crash.

California Motorcycle Accident Injuries

California has more registered motorcycles than any other state in the country. Motorcyclists are generally less protected from danger than passengers in trucks, buses, and other passenger vehicles. Statistics show that motorcycle riders are 27 times more likely to die in a traffic accident than those other passengers. If a motorcycle accident is not fatal, the rider is still likely to suffer serious and potentially debilitating injuries. Common motorcycle accident injuries in California include lacerations, broken bones, fractures, traumatic brain injury, whiplash, concussion, spinal cord injury, disfigurement, loss of limbs, road rash, internal organ damage, and paralysis. Victims who suffer these and other injuries can file a personal injury lawsuit to recover damages from the person (or persons) responsible for causing the crash.

“All right, all right. Well like I said, I just got rear-ended trying to drop off my sister-in-law at this continuing education school. So it sucked, especially because I had to get my car fixed, so I didn’t have a car. But my uncle recommended me to this law firm and I would highly recommend it to other people because they made everything really simple. And they explained everything and made it seem like it was not complicated, which I’m pretty sure it was. But, you know. So yeah.”
