Texas Assault: It’s Not Just a Criminal Case

Assault Injuries | Personal Injury

Victims of assault may not initially know what their rights are under the law. Many victims don’t understand which type of legal process, civil or criminal, applies in their case.

When it comes to assault in Texas, the legal remedy to the situation may not simply be a criminal one, but a civil one as well – because you can bring a personal injury lawsuit to the table.

If you’ve been assaulted, then it’s important to understand effective ways you can get the compensation you deserve. Here’s what you need to know about criminal court rulings and how they can play into a personal injury claim.

Why Do Back Injuries Occur in So Many Texas Car Crashes?

Auto Accidents | Personal Injury

Tens of thousands of Americans die in car crashes every year, and another 3 million people suffer from related injuries or disabilities. That translates to around 9,000 people suffering serious or permanent injuries due to auto wrecks.

You could walk away from a car crash with any type of injury. Broken bones, concussions, or cuts may occur. By and large, however, the type of injury that occurs more often than others: back injuries.

Furthermore, those injuries affecting the back can be especially debilitating. They can impact your ability to play sports, walk, or even bend and twist.

Understand the connection between back injuries and car crashes. Because when you can prove that your back pain is directly related [...]

I Rear-Ended Someone Who Slammed Their Brakes in TX – Who’s Liable?

Auto Accidents | Personal Injury

As traffic rates in Texas continue to climb, so too do traffic collisions. In the Dallas Fort Worth area, rear-end accidents are among the most common kinds.

According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), rear-end collisions account for somewhere between 28 and 50 percent of all two-vehicle accidents each year. Of an estimated 1.7 million rear-end accidents, 1,7000 are fatal.

As a Texan, you may find yourself involved in this kind of accident, even if you are generally a safe and law-abiding driver who follows steps to avoid auto accidents.

It is generally assumed that the driver who rear-ends the other car is at fault in such situations. However, if you were driving and the [...]

Your Texas Pharmacist Made an Error That Injured You – Can You Sue?

Personal Injury | Pharmaceutical Liability

When we are given a prescription for any sort of health issue, we put our trust in the doctors and pharmacists behind the counter to give us the right dose, medicine, and instructions to make us feel better or keep an illness at bay.

This attitude makes sense. After all, doctors and pharmacists spend years in school and take on the responsibility to keep us healthy and safe.

What happens when they make a mistake, though? If they cause further injuries, can you file a lawsuit to cover the cost of what they did to you?

The short answer is yes. The longer answer requires some information about a pharmacist’s duty and how negligence can directly cause injury.

The Most Common Construction Accidents in Texas

Construction Accidents | Personal Injury | Work Injury

The construction industry is one of the most dangerous industries for workers, as illustrated by two recent stories of injuries and death.

On January 10, a crane injured two workers when it fell at an Austin worksite. The crane operator was attempting to lift a concrete wall when a chain snapped and dropped the wall. One man was taken to the hospital for minor injuries, while the other refused treatment.

A representative from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) said that the crane’s rigging may have been defective, or the insert came loose from the concrete. Smaller cranes, like the one used at the site, have fewer built-in safety devices than large cranes, and have safety systems that [...]
