Texas Road Rage Injuries Can Be Serious – How to Protect Yourself

Auto Accidents | Road Rage

Unfortunately, most of us have encountered a raging driver out on the roadways at some point. It’s terrifying, because even though psychologists postulate on reasons behind road rage and studies show that all drivers naturally begin viewing others more as obstacles and less as human when driving, the truth is that you have no idea what’s going on in the angry driver’s mind.

Amusement Park Injuries

Parks are (almost) open, temperatures are rising, and school is about to be out.

It may not surprise you to read that The National Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates more than 270 million people will probably visit an amusement park before year’s end, but what you probably don’t realize is that about 7,000 of those visitors will end up in an emergency room because of it.

A 2018 report by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute revealed that in 75% of conspicuity cases – where riders weren’t seen – the motorcyclist was not at fault. However, because the other party often cries “smaller, faster, in my blind spot” on the roadways, there are a few key steps you can take on the scene that to help your personal injury attorney best defend you in a Texas motorcycle accident case.

Bitten by a Dog in Texas? What You Should Know

Dog Bites

According to the 2017-2018 APPA National Pet Owners Survey, nearly 50 percent of U.S. households own a dog.

The most recent data published by the American Veterinary Medical Association reported Texas as making the Top Ten States with the most dog owners at a whopping 44%. That’s a lot of dogs.

Unfortunately, the Insurance Information Institute also ranked Texas in the top 10 last year for dog bite liability claims. With the average cost per claim around $36,000 and 929 cases on the record, that’s a lot of money, too.

Here, we’ll provide you the few basics you need to know regarding Texas dog laws, and your rights if you or a loved one get bitten.
