Hit by a TX Drunk Driver Over New Year’s? The Clock’s Already Ticking

Auto Accidents | Drunk Driving Accidents

If you happened to be one of the unlucky victims of an NYE drunk driving accident in Texas this year, you’re probably still dealing with the aftermath – pressing charges, filing a civil suit, or simply dealing with your own medical issues as a result.

Not A Day Into 2020 and 3 DFW Drunk Drivers, 7 Victims Reported

One Lewisville woman was driving while intoxicated, for instance, and hit another vehicle in the early morning hours. A female passenger in the other vehicle died, and the male driver was critically injured.

A Fort Worth head-on collision just before midnight killed two other people. Although the cause of the accident had not been officially determined yet, the other driver is suspected [...]

Don’t Let School Zone Drop Offs End in a Pedestrian Accident in TX

Pedestrian Accidents

Now that the holidays are over, it’s back to your regular routine. Getting back in the swing of things can be hard when you’re balancing work, family obligations, and bringing your kids to school. It’s only normal to feel a little distracted when you’re trying to make this transition.

Don’t let that distraction affect your driving, though. School drop-offs are one of the riskiest places most kids see regularly. Be smart, and avoid a pedestrian accident in a school drop off this year.

The Dangers of Texas School Zone Drop Offs

Mixing moving cars with pedestrian kids is always something of a dangerous move. However, it’s impossible to avoid it when handling the logistics of getting your kids to school. [...]

Texans: Done Unwrapping Gifts? Don’t Throw Out Product Manuals Yet!

Defective Products | Product Liability

You’ve watched your loved ones open all of your carefully curated and wrapped gifts, and it’s time to sort and stuff the last of your wrapping remnants into your trash and recycling bins.

Before you do…stop and think. Those fancy gadgets you got everyone? They probably came with instructions and safety manuals. Yes? Well, keep them!

Because even the most innocuous present can have unexpected (and dangerous) consequences. Phones that catch on fire in people’s pockets. Toys that injure kids. These kinds of accidents happen every year.

Proving that you’ve read the warnings provided by manufacturers can affect whether you receive compensation for them.

What If You See Signs of Abuse on Your TX Nursing Home Holiday Visit?

Nursing Home Abuse

The holidays are a special time for families of all shapes and sizes. For the families of the 1.3 million nursing home residents in America, some time might be spent at their favorite senior’s care facility.

Trips to nursing homes can be a wonderful time to reconnect – that is, unless you start to notice that your loved one isn’t receiving the care they need.

A recent Senate report showed that over 400 nursing home facilities around the country have a “persistent record of poor care.” Poor care or attention to residents is often just the beginning of what ends in abuse, neglect, injuries, and sometimes even death.

Know the signs of abuse before you visit your loved ones at [...]

Up on the Rooftop This Holiday? Who’s Liable for a Texas Slip and Fall

Premises Liability | Trip and Falls

From traveling during icy conditions to decorating roofs, you may find yourself doing plenty of things around this time of year that you would consider too dangerous any other season.

For one Texas family, decorating for the holidays led to the loss of their father from a slip and fall accident. While up on the roof stringing lights, the unthinkable happened and he fell and hit his head. He died from head trauma at the hospital later that day.

Unfortunately, this case is not unique. Even if you or your loved one survives a slip and fall incident, they may still be injured for life or dealing with lingering mental or physical trauma.

The one silver lining? If you believe [...]

Texas Has a Fatal Car Crash Problem

Auto Accidents | Auto Insurance Claims

Think back to 2000. A lot has happened between then and now. We have iPhones now, our cars have Bluetooth. Fads have come and gone.

One thing that hasn’t changed since November 7, 2000? At least one person has died every single day on Texas roads. That translates to at least one family left without a loved one — in their place, the costs, financial and otherwise, of that person’s death.

Take two teenagers who were recently killed on Texas Highway 59. One victim’s family is now responsible for looking after the victim’s 1-year-old daughter. The other had to set up a GoFundMe to cover airfare to fly the victim’s body home to Houston from San Antonio for a proper [...]

Did Your Thanksgiving Meal Make You Sick? Texans Can Fight Back

Food Poisoning

More than possibly any other holiday, Thanksgiving is all about the food. Unfortunately, this means that thousands of Americans succumb to food poisoning every Thanksgiving.

Most cases of food poisoning resolve on their own within a few days. However, food poisoning can also result in serious life-threatening complications or long-term health problems.

Fortunately, you have the ability to hold the responsible party liable with a personal injury suit, especially if the food that made you sick was from a store or restaurant.

How Food Poisoning Happens in Texas

Food poisoning is the result of some kind of contamination which can happen at any point in the food production supply chain, including:

  • Growing
  • Harvesting
  • Processing
  • Storage
  • Shipping
  • Preparation

Most often, food [...]
