Can Another’s Negligence Ever Cause a Single-Car Accident in Texas?

Auto Accidents

If you have a car accident that doesn’t involve another driver, is it always your fault? Can someone else be held liable for the damages?

In this post, we’ll detail ways that a single-car accident can, in fact, be caused by another’s negligence, and how you may be able to receive compensation.

Texas Single-Car Accident Liability

Most of the time, a car accident involves at least two drivers. However, single-car accidents do occur, and they are not always the fault of the driver. A knowledgeable attorney can help you determine the reason for the accident.

In some cases, other people or entities can be at fault for single-car accidents. A recent case in North Richland Hills is a potential example [...]

Injured Due to Unsafe Apartment Conditions? Your Rights in Texas

Landlord Liability | Premises Liability

People think of Texas as this big, open, rural farmland with sprawling ranch houses. While this Texas exists, however, our state is also home to several major cities with big, dense urban populations.

The result? Many Texans rent their living accommodations rather than owning. If you fall into this category, you are guaranteed certain rights – including the right to a healthy and safe living environment.

If your landlord violates this right and it results in an injury, your landlord is liable for any resulting damages. Holding your landlord liable for your injuries through a premises liability suit not only helps you address financial concerns related to the accident by awarding compensation, but also forces them to deal with issues [...]

School’s Starting Again — What Texas Drivers Can Do to Keep Kids Safe

Child Injury and Accidents

It’s that time of year again! Texas students are braving the last weeks of summer heat as they begin a new school year. Even if you don’t have kids, or if your kids are off to college and beyond, this time of year is still important to remember.

Why? Because more kids are going to be on the road: driving to school, walking to school, or catching the bus. Motor vehicle accidents are already the leading cause of teen deaths in our country, and a big reason why is a lack of attention in general.

We hope that most of the following driving tips are common sense, but after years of driving, it can be easy to forget even the [...]

How Swimming Pool Injury Liability Works in Texas

Child Injury and Accidents | Swimming Pool Accidents

Swimming is popular pastime here in Texas, particularly as we endure the dog days of summer. Even though it’s fun and refreshing, however, swimming can also be dangerous – especially if appropriate safety precautions are not in place.

Besides drowning, there are a number of other injuries that occur in and around swimming pools. These injuries can happen in both public and private pools, and also in portable pools, wave pools, and water parks.

If you or a loved one suffered a swimming pool injury that occurred due to the negligence of the pool owner, it may be possible to recoup damages to cover the cost of your injuries through a premises liability suit. This type of injury claim holds [...]

What Can You Do If a Texas Funeral Home Acts Negligently?

Funeral Home Negligence

Mourning a loved one can be an exhausting process, both emotionally and financially. Loved ones are left with a long list of to-do items, including making funeral arrangements and distributing property. Any slip-ups relating to funeral operations can be tragic and make the process even more stressful.

Unfortunately, these tragedies do happen. If you are local to San Antonio, you may have heard about an lengthy case involving a missing corpse that just recently ended.

A young woman’s body went missing from the Mission Park North Funeral Chapel North in August 2015. The case was settled earlier this year, and the deceased woman’s parents were awarded $8 million.
