Who pays in a trucking accident?

If you are involved in an accident with another passenger vehicle in Texas, your insurance and the other driver's provider will likely be responsible to pay for the repair of any damage that is caused or injuries that are sustained.

As a Texas driver, you may have had an incident or two when another vehicle, motorcycle or cyclist found its way into your blind spot.

Texas residents have good reason to be concerned about the growing number of people texting while driving. This behavior takes not just a person's eyes off the road but hands and mental concentration as well. A bill in the state legislature that aims to ban texting while driving was recently passed by the House of Representatives. It will now be voted on by the Senate. Interestingly, handhled use of phones for non-texting purposes would still be allowed.

How can I safely drive around large trucks?
