Sorting through the physical and emotional debris of a car crash

You probably remember the sounds of metal crashing, glass breaking and other noises associated with your car accident. Perhaps you can still picture the wreckage and debris strewn across a Texas roadway. Of course, if your injuries rendered you unconscious at the time, you may have absolutely no recollection at all of the events leading up to or following your collision. Either way, the recovery process can be long and arduous; a key to success often lies in the type of support available to you.

Detailing the duty to protect employees from falls

For relatively healthy, able-bodied people in San Antonio, workplace falls may not seem to present that much of a risk. They may think that only very young children or the elderly can be subject to harm from a fall. Their confidence likely comes from not only believing that they are firmly in control of their motor skills, but also that they understand their working environments. Such people might be surprised to learn how big of a problem falls present to the American workforce. 

Accident takes life of UPS driver at facility in San Antonio

A collision with a speeding 18-wheeler can have devastating consequences. Given that tractor-trailers can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds, the impact of a large truck can be like that of a missile, and people in smaller vehicles often suffer catastrophic injuries in truck accidents.

Is your car the real distraction?

You may have seen movies set in the future where a character climbs into a vehicle that carries him or her to a destination without the person having to control the speed of the vehicle or clutch a steering wheel. In these cases, the passenger is free to drink champagne, listen to music or carry on dramatic conversations with others who may not even be in the vehicle.

Self-driving cars to be popular in the next decade

If you think that the latest safety innovations in 2017 model year cars are making cars safer, prepare yourself for the coming evolutions that will eventually lead to autonomous vehicles. What was previously thought of as pure science fiction is gradually becoming reality as a number of automakers are involved in a race to get self-driving vehicles (SDCs) on the road.

Not all San Antonio drivers heed these safety tips

Many Texans are daily commuters. Whether going to work, running errands or taking a trip, you likely find yourself on the road most days. With that said, you should be able to expect other drivers to exercise caution and obey the rules of the road, but you know that many drivers are careless.

Steps to take if you are injured on someone else's property

In Texas, when a person is injured on another's property, or premise, it means more than simply in or around a building. The Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code includes in its definition of premises waterways, roads, equipment and bodies of water, along with building structures and land. The broad definition can lead to an injured party being unsure of proper liability.
