Negligent Drivers Cost Lives

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics indicate a number of troubling figures:

  • Hundreds of the fatal motorcycle crashes recorded each year are due to drivers turning left in front of a motorcycle that had the right of way.
  • Motorcycle riders are about five times more likely to be injured and 30 times more likely to be killed in a collision than comparable car and truck drivers.
  • Texas is often where the most fatal motorcycle accidents occur, with over 450 fatalities each calendar year, including drivers and passengers.

Featured Case

FELA/Worker Injury

A 15-year machinist for Union Pacific Railroad was injured when a locomotive coupled into his blue flagged locomotive in the diesel shop at Union Pacific’s Houston facility. Although the machinist failed to engage the shop derails and acknowledge the track alarm, the contention was that Union Pacific employee took one minute and forty-four second water break during a walk around prior to the coupling.

During this water break, the machinist blue flagged his locomotive and began working. Burwell Nebout filed suit against Union Pacific Railroad in Harris County. After a two-week trial in the 157th District Court in Harris County, the jury awarded the machinist $566,105. The jury determined that Union Pacific Railroad violated the federal regulation that absolutely prohibits coupling into a blue flagged locomotive.
