Get tough if you've suffered soft tissue injuries in Texas

As you get behind your car's wheel and head to town, you focus on your day's agenda, with ambient music playing in the background. All of a sudden, the sound of your thoughts and of your music is replaced with the sound of a large crash. By the time the noise stops, you surmise that you have just been involved in a motor vehicle collision.

Father sues bars that served drinks to driver that killed his son

When one person's reckless actions result in tragedy in San Antonio, it may be easy to simply assign all the blame to said individual. Yet what about those who may have enabled him or her? Assigning vicarious liability may be difficult given the complexities and challenges involved in trying to link the actions of a third party to an incident in which that party may have not been directly involved. There are times, however, when the families of those killed in incidents of reckless believe they have ample evidence to prove that outside parties played a hand in the deaths of their loved ones. 

What are your rights if injured in a ride share accident?

Many people in San Antonio enjoy the freedom and ease of using ride-share services for transportation service throughout the city. These services are growing in popularity, likely because they offer people a relatively simple and inexpensive way to get from one place to another. Uber, Lyft and other similar companies have enjoyed a significant amount of growth and popularity in Texas over the last few years.

Explaining where hazardous materials-carrying vehicles can stop

While many do not realize it, those driving in and around San Antonio are often traveling alongside trucks containing hazardous materials. While it is necessary to move such materials via the highway, that does not make the process any safer. Indeed, according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, of the 16,850 incidents involving the transportation of hazardous materials that occurred in 2017, over 90 percent happened on highways. An even more frightening statistic may be that only about 1.5 percent of these highway incidents were accident-related, meaning that a majority may have involved simple leaks or spills. 

What to do after an accident

By the time you finish reading this post, several people will have suffered injuries in motor vehicle accidents across the country, perhaps even here in Texas. In fact, over 6 million traffic accidents occur every year, resulting in millions of injuries and thousands of deaths. Even a simple fender bender can bring frustration, inconvenience and unexpected expense to your life. If you are injured, all those factors will seem to multiply.
