Car Accident Lawyers RBR Law - Car Accident Fatalities Drop Significantly in 2017 and 2018
According to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, traffic casualties fell by 1.8% for all of 2017. This came as a welcome relief after the sharp rise in deaths in the past several years. The National Safety Council states that from 2014 to 2015, traffic fatalities rose 7%, which marked the steepest two-year increase in over 50 years. 2016 brought an additional increase of 7%.

These new reduced statistics could be attributed to a variety of factors, one of which is automobile technology. Vehicle manufacturers are making cars safer than ever before by adding more crash avoidance features. These new safety components will help warn motorists of a potential crash, or automatically slow down the vehicle. “We’re very hopeful that will continue to be part of a trend,” NHTSA Deputy Administrator Heidi King tells us.

Who Is Liable – Scooter Companies or Rental Riders - Reyes Browne ReilleyIt’s hard to miss the colorful bikes and scooters that have been popping up throughout Dallas. It would appear to be a great concept: accessible, affordable, ‘greener’ urban transportation. But what happens when things take a turn for the worse? No one plans on having an accident, but they inevitably do happen. Who is liable in a scooter accident – the corporation or the consumer?

Several weeks after the e-scooters made their debut in Dallas, Uptown resident Kelley Mitchum underestimated the speed at which she was traveling, and ended up in a severe crash. Upon turning a corner too quickly, she was launched headfirst into McKinney Avenue’s trolley tracks. The $1.38 rental ride resulted in a hefty emergency room bill, after treating her two black eyes, scraped arms and knees, and a laceration in her forehead which required stitches.

Cases like Mitchum’s are bound to become more frequent in Dallas’ busy urban landscape, as was the case of a local Dallas musician in early August.

It’s a question most people would not ask themselves until it’s too late: “what happens if I get in a wreck in a different state?”

Car accidents can happen anywhere at any time. And while your car insurance coverage meets your state’s minimum requirements, what happens if you’re involved in a car accident outside of your state of residence? Are you still covered for injuries and damages?

Personal injury laws and regulations differ across state lines, so the location of an auto accident can make quite a difference to victims.

35UEZZ4RG5HVFIMUNSGR5KNSYU-1024x576A powerful storm has dumped 10 inches of rain on parts of the Dallas-Fort Worth area over the past few days, causing widespread flooding. Flash floods are the number one weather-related killer in the United States — most flood fatalities happen because people try to drive through deadly waters rather than avoid them.

The next highest percentage of flood-related deaths is due to walking into or near flood waters. People underestimate the force and power of water. Many of the deaths occur in automobiles as they are swept downstream. Of these drownings, many are preventable, but too many people continue to drive around the barriers that warn you the road is flooded. A mere 6 inches of fast-moving flood water can knock over an adult. It takes just 12 inches of rushing water to carry away a small car, while 2 feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles. It is NEVER safe to drive or walk into flood waters.

With more rain on the way, follow these tips to stay safe in your car during a flood.
