What must you prove in a wrongful death action?

If your spouse or other close relative dies in Texas as the result of the negligence or wrongdoing of someone else, you can sue that person for the wrongful death of your loved one. As FindLaw explains, a wrongful death action represents a civil suit in which you ask for monetary damages to recompense you for the financial losses you suffered and will continue to suffer due to your loved one’s untimely and premature death.

Who is at fault for injury on someone else's property?

When you think about a premises liability claim, you might think of a slip and fall at someone's place of business. Though that is certainly an example, this type of claim can also include dog bites, an accident at a hotel, injury in a parking lot or being hurt at a construction site. All these different instances may make it difficult for you to determine anyone's responsibility when hurt on someone else's property.

Proposed changes to trucker drive times could endanger public

The U.S. Department of Transportation is considering easing up on rules governing commercial trucker drive times across Texas and the nation, and while the trucking industry might view the proposed changes as a win, the motoring public is unlikely to do the same. At Gamez Law Firm, we understand that rules governing trucker drive times are in place to enhance public safety, and that, while easing up on these regulations may help today’s trucking companies, doing so potentially places everyone on the roadway in danger.

Are hands-free cellphones safe for drivers?

Although using a hand-held cellphone while driving is not against the law in Texas, the consequences of engaging in this task could be disastrous. In 2017 alone, approximately 3,166 people lost their lives in distracted driving accidents and thousands more were injured in similar incidents. In an attempt to stay safe on the road, many drivers have turned to using hands-free cellphones. While hands-free devices allow you to keep your hands on the steering wheel and eyes on the road, they still cause a significant amount of cognitive distraction, which could lead to a catastrophic collision.
